Question about HP Deskjet 3510 e-All-in-One Printer
Posted by Anonymous on
Sounds like when you pulled out the paper jam, you misaligned the print carriage. That would produce both the noises you hear and the print quality issues. HP.com has a few web pages on their site that might help. The first one deals with noisy print carriages. Unfortunately, it's not dedicated to just your product, but the steps should generally apply:
Resolving Noisy Print Carriage Issues
There's a separate web page available for troubleshooting crooked or skewed printouts:
Printed Text or images are Crooked or Skewed
If all else fails, unplug the power cord from the printer, wait 20 seconds or so, then plug it back in. That should restart the printer and make it go into a self test which may include a realignment procedure. Watch for any error messages on the display on the printer's control panel. Sometimes to realign, it prints out two test pages and instructs you to place the first printout on the scanner bed and then press Enter.
Go to the following web page and when it opens, scroll down to the section "Replacing the print cartridges", and find step 9 in that section for alignment instructions.

There is a back panel that opens up by turning a knob....remove that panel and view for any paper pieces...

As "Guest" posted on Feb 05, 2009 the problem for me was the box in the back of the printer that facilitates double sided printing. One side had come loose. I was getting "Paper Mismatch" errors, and the text was printing slanted. I simply pulled the box out and reinstalled it. Problem solved.

I know it is a pain, but remove printer program then re-install. it is a lot quicker than fiddling around!
If problem persists, enter settings and run printhead cleaner alighment.

I think it's more or less the same on Mac or PC. Hit Print in your software, then when the dialogue box comes up you should see several options settings. There will be a pull-down menu that lets you choose paper size. (This menu is sometimes buried in another sub menu called "printer options" or something similar. It can be tricky to find this in some apps like Photoshop). Just select your 5x8 size and then at the top of the dialogue box you should be able to save it all as a preset. Pull down the "preset" tab and select "Save As..." then you can name it and pull it up each time later.
Hope this works.
