Question about HP PSC 1610 All-in-One Printer, Scanner, Copier
When I first got the machine - envelopes would feed - no problem - over time - with use - paper feeds fine BUT envelopes jam 3 to 1 - does something need to be cleaned?? is there something I can do? It's very frustrating and time consuming to clear jam after jam and ruin 3 envelopes to get one printed correctly....can you help me?
I have had varying success with envelopes. Can you feed in the other way round? Sometimes different envelopes perform better. The peel N seal can be very difficult

SOURCE: won't feed paper
I had the same problem it was not feeding paper, and was giving the out of paper msg, I checked and the feed roller ( small black one in contact with paper) was not rotating, Also when the back cover is removed the roller also did not rotate. I took apart the printer and found that a white gear with the encoder disc (clear film with printed lines) on the central shaft was slighty broken, The shaft is knurled but is a poor design. I had to drill through the gear and the shaft to fit a pin to be able to fully secure the gear to the shaft. Kevin

I would recommend you re-orientate your envelope going into the printer by placing it flap up, right flush but with the widest side in fist (or horizontally as per your description). Below is my attempt of the envelope as it should be placed in the paper tray (all in bold characters): _________ |\ /| | \ / | | `...' | |__/___\__|In your document editor it should be orientated like a normal document.Best luck,Ed(In case the drawing is not very clear, click here an the way to put the envelope IN the aper tray should be like the 1st drawing)

Hi there ok
Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.
First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.
If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
All The Best: Pineworks
