Question about HP Officejet 5610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

When I copy or scan on the glass of my HP 5610, the left side of the paper (about 25% of the total) comes out blurry and faint (unreadable, and with a lot less ink than normal). If I try to scan using the ADF, the right side is blurry/faint.

SOURCE: scanning document leaves streak down right hand side


Thanks for the tip...the problem is NOT a black line but a wide yellow line on the right side of the paper. It starts out about a quarter of the page in width and diminishes in size to about a half inch in width after many repeated scans.

The glass IS clean , and even when the glass had some smudges here and there, I never had a yellow stripe problem!

Scanner bulb is bright and even the entire length of bulb (no dark areas) so I don't think it is the bulb!

These printers are notorious for having bad scanners. The fix will not last long. Replace the printer.

Based on the assumption it's mechanically ok, check the cable connection between the document feeder and the base, if damaged or worked look it can cause errors. If it is a sensor error, check for a small bit of paper or even a staple from a prior jam.

SOURCE: My Hp Officejet 7210 will not scan,fax or feed

I also was not able to copy, scan or fax multiple pages through the ADF of our HP Officejet 7210 AIO, but it would print well from our computers.

It would either grab several pages at once, or not grab paper at all. The feeder was trying but had poor traction action. Not sure if that's the same situation for you, but this is what fixed ours:

I purchased part number C7309-60091 feed roller assembly, and part number C7309-60076 separation pad from Encompass Parts, and replaced them. The ADF works great now.

Our HP Officejet 7210 had only 3,000 pages printed on it, which didn't seem like enough to wear out the separation pad or feed roller in the ADF, especially since all those pages didn't go through the ADF, so I figure it's because of our very dry environment. Hope this helps you.

Everytime I fax something on my HP Officejet 5610 all in one, the recipient receives the document with a line going down the left side of the page. How do I get rid of the line?

Lines on scanned and copied documents is usually caused by something on the scanner glass such as ink, correction fluid or trash. Open the top of the printer and clean the scanner glass surfaces with windex and paper towels. See this article for more details:

Copy off glass copy is good. copy from ADF copy is blurry

The problem is either dirty glass for the ADF which you can clean, or the ADF cannot feed the paper you are trying to scan through accurately. Most smaller all in one printers use the same scanner element for both the ADF and flat glass scanning so the fact that glass scanning is fine points to the two problems listed above.

I cannot get my copier to copy papers. Please refresh my memory on how the 5610 all in one copies. Thanx

We have a 6210 at work, must be similar though.
Make sure you have blank paper in tray, Put piece you want copy of face down on scan glass, close lid, hit copy, it takes a minute to wake up. Or put piece you want copied in auto-feed face up, hit copy, it takes a while to wake up, seems as though it is not working, then it will.

Lift the cover just as you would to scan a document. Then, lift the side of the cover directly to the left of the glass, closest to the glass, and check for jammed paper.

Hp 5610 black solid line in middle of scanned or copied document

Scan or Copy a BLANK sheet of paper.
if you still have that black solid line it means there are two possibilities:
>> the scanner glass is not screen
>> the scanner is faulty.

Clean the glass properly using a moist lint free cloth.(do not use alcohol)
if the issue still persists

The only option that you have is to get the printer replaced.
If your printer is still under warranty(i.e if its still not an year old) you can get a free replacement from HP.

I have a hp office jet 5610 with document feeder. When I scan a multipage document the first page comes out ok, but the second and succeding pages have a single vertical line through them about 1/3 of the...

The way to fix this is to do the following: lift the lid, clean the glass with window cleaner and a paper towel. (WARNING! Spray window cleaner onto the paper towel not the glass. Spraying directly onto the glass could cause you to get shocked or worse short out the officejet.) Wipe glass with dry paper towel.

On page 112 of the owner's manual it shows how to open the document feeder. Spray some window cleaner (just to were its damp) onto the swab and gently clean the the glass. take a paper towel and dry the glass.

This should take care of any lines on scanned images.

Top to Bottom gray line on left side of Copied Page

does the grey line appear if you scan true the "upper" scanner.(set paper on top of printer and sscan it that way)? you should also clean the smal slim glass that is at the side of the big scanner glass.
also try to remove all cartridges and tilt them side to side several times. then put them back and test your printer.

Received fax is unreadable or blurry
Please go through the checklist below to see if the suggested action(s) can resolve the issue.

* Make sure the copy function is working well.
* Print a Clean nozzle page from the Maintenance menu. If the printout has unexpected white or color horizontal streaks or missing portions, print the Clean nozzle page again. If you are still experiencing streaks or mission portions, you may need to replace your cartridge(s).
* The cartridges may need to be aligned.
* You may need to ask the sender to increase their fax quality.

Sent fax is unreadable or blurry.

1. If the receiving party indicates that the fax output is unreadable or blurry, you may want to try increasing the fax quality.
2. Check the scanner glass for excess amounts of smudges and/or fingerprints. If the scanner glass needs cleaning, moisten a clean, lint-free cloth and gently wipe the scanner glass. Make sure the scanner glass is dry before scanning the next document.
