My HP 2610 copier is making a strange crackling noise which is new...what's causing this?
My HP Photosmart 2610 recently started making a strange cracking noise and even though I sprayed air inside to clear any potential dust but it still is making the noise. This is a new issue within the last week and does anyone know what is causing this. It's driving us crazy with the anoying crackling noise.

You can use a degreasing spray or methyl alcohol to clean up the residual ink. Use a brush to clean and wipe and BLOW using a hair dryer to fully dry up the residue.
Make sure that there is no dirt at the terminals, clean and set with original cartridges from HP.
Now if there is errors then you must disconnect printer, uninstall then install the driver, connect printer when prompted and print a test page.
you can download the driver from hp website. Just follow the steps in downloading the driver
1. go to www.support.hp.com

= to know your operating system just click start then right click my computer or computer then click properties
6. click driver - product installation software
7. click HP officejet and photosmart full feature software and drivers

First of all, buy a tin of compressed air "Kenair" is what i use. Take the side off, go outside and blow it out thoroughly. If its whining/making a strange noise its usually where the dust gets inside the fan bearings. The dust also acts as an insulator on the component and heats them up causing the computer to fail.
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
Your printer creates it's black by using ALL the colours together. This effectively gives a very dark purple rather than black.
It sounds like you have a colour cart that is drying up or may be struggling to get enough air into the cartridge. Make sure you have removed any tape over the vent holes if you are using compatible inks. If not then try running a couple cleaning cycles via the button panel/driver.
If you alter the settings in the driver by going into START - PRINTERS AND FAXES and then right click on your 2610 and select PROPERTIES - the changes you make in here will be set as the default settings for each print job.
