Question about HP PSC 1610v All-in-One Printer

1 Answer

Carriage jam Everytime I hit print, the printer carraige goes back and forth several times making a horrible noise. It sounds like it is going to blow up or something. Then the printer screen says it has a carriage jam. I lift the lid and shut it, and it prints. Then when it is done printing it still says it has a carriage jam. I have looked to make sure there is nothing in the way of the carriage and I can't find anything. Can anyone make a suggestion? It would be very appreciated. Laura Allen

Pump motor stalls in my HP printer


When an inkjet printer is making "awful noises" it means that there is either a paper jam or the carriage can't move properly. Remove all paper and check for a paper jam - if this is not the problem, turn off the printer and see if you can move the print cartridge carrier by hand. If it is hard to move, clean the shiny carriage rod with a cloth and put just a drop of light oil on it. Move the carriage back and forth and clean it again - repeat until it moves easily and add a final drop of oil to the rod.

Ink cartridge jam


Try cleaning the carriage bar. This is a shiny rod that the ink carriage slides back and forth on. Wipe it off with a clean rag and put a drop or two of light oil on the rod. The carriage should move easily back and forth.

Your video is not working. I can only assume your problem is in the print carriage. Does it move back and forth when you first turn the printer on? If not, the carriage may be jammed or its belt drive jammed.

There is little or no value in older printers.

It looks like the print head was incorrectly installed and the timing is out of sync which would explain why the carriage is banging the back of the print head, you need somebody that knows how to set it up correctly because this can be somewhat tricky to service.

Carraige jam. Screen says to clear carriage jam


Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

How do a clear a carriage jam on a hp6210 printer


My HP6210 printer had the same problem. The carriage would make a lot of noise going back and forth and I got the carriage jam error message. Using a flashlight, I found an incredible amount of ink (mainly black ink) underneath the mechaism which clears the ink off the print cartridges. I throughly cleaned the internal components and it works again.
