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.

HI,

Perform a semi-full reset on the all-in-one by following the steps below

  1. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the all-in-one.
  3. Wait 30 seconds, and plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
  4. Press and hold the # and 6 buttons on the numeric keypad.
  5. While still holding the buttons, plug the power cord back in to the all-in-one. Continue to hold the buttons for two seconds, and then release them
  6. Allow the all-in-one to re-initialize. This may take a minute or two.
  7. If prompts appear in the all-in-one display to set the front panel language and country settings, perform the steps to set this information.
Note - you can also try the Ok n cancel key combination in place of # and 6 .

u can also try the following steps >>

u can press set up on the printer > go to the tools option [ by pressing the down arrow key ] > press ok > go to clean print head , clean cartridge , allign printer > it will service the product .

The problem should be corrected. If the problem still exists, service your product.

Thanks

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.

Having problem with computer was told had to be cleaned out as programs are coming up even though i don't need them when starting ip. Sometimes makes a weird winding noise need some help to try and fix...


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.

Normal 0 Normal 0 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

The software for the scanner keeps uninstalling itself after awhile.  I can push scanner button and I get a message saying install software.

Black printing morphs into red after black ink cartridge installation


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.
