Question about HP PSC 2410 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My HP PSC 2410 Photosmart is stuck while booting, with or without conected to the computer. An hourglass is showing in its screen. The machine did work properly before on the same computer (PC with Windows XP SP2) The machine does no more print, fax or scan. I can still read memory cards on the computer.
I.ve had the same problem for over 6 months now. It started by power outage.At first it was easy to to fix it by disconnecting the power cable foar a while then reconnect it. The printer then could startup easily or may need 2 or 3 trials untill it works.
By the time it becom worst, thus needs to leave it overnight and repead the trial many many times.
In 6 months time after I've got fed up of that bloody product it gets hopeless case.
At that stage and because I don't have enough mony to by a new one, I decided to clean the Scanner Glass, the Scanner Lamp and the Homing Sensor. The cleaning must be done with ultimate care in accordance with HP instrucions found in:
www.hp.com/support. Your key word is: psc 2410 photosmart all-in-one, then click psc2410 photosmart, then write the keyword: scanner glass cleaning.
After doing this it could be started-up in 1-3 trials. which means the scanner lamp light intensity is not so good as it was brand new one.
Any way, that solution for a poor man like me is better than nothing!

What's solution #1? I don't see it listed anywhere. I tried #2 and I still get the clicking sound and the hourglass just stayed put.
The weird thing is that in the summer, my machine stopped working (got stuck booting up just like described by others), so I unplugged it for over 2 months. A few weeks ago I plugged it in again and it worked for all of one day (but not long enough to get a project finished). So I started researching other printers because I'm just sick of this thing, but then I ran across this website. I'm hoping it'll work tomorrow if it's unplugged overnight.
How long do you have to keep holding onto the Cancel button?
Otherwise, does anyone have any suggestions on a new printer? Looking for a fairly good quality (more reliable) machine that scans at a high resolution.
Thanks for the help!

I had the same problem, too. Holding the CANCEL button during startup did the trick. Thanks a bunch!

Solution worked like charm!!! Just make sure you keep it unpluged for awhile. Overnight worked for me. (But I got tired of trying to fix it and went to bed) ;-) Thanks!!!

Solution #1 just worked for ME! But remember only works if yours is "making a peculiar sound and wouldn't boot up" as if the scanner is jammed.

I found this suggestion on line and it worked. After turning on my hp psc 2410 photosmart all in one, it just started making a peculiar sound and wouldn't boot up. It was useless. What I did to correct the problem (as per suggestion from [email protected]) was to hold the cancel button down before I turned the printer on and hold it down through the start up process. The thing works now. The problem may have been caused by a power outage. Thanks [email protected] I almost bought another printer.
