Thanks fixya.com
You helped me CLEAN the HP PSC 1610
it had MASIVE amounts of waisted ink
in the area that it WANTS to waste ink
to keep the cartridges FLOWING...
It seems that HP (as with most all manufacturers)
opened the mid section of the printer
moved the ink holder module to the far left
pushed the cleaning tray
(it moves to you and away from you)
away towards the rear of the machine
used masive amounts of isopropyl alcohol
and an old toothbrush
to clean most of the gunk ink buld-up
(started with q-tips but it was not enough)
After cleaning ... the machine worked again...
that noise was still there
after carefull inspection
I saw the problem
there was a hairline crack in a small plastic part
above a rotating gear
when the carriage came to the right
it was suposed to move that part
off or away from the gear
but because it was cracked
it did not move properly
crazy glue or super glue
and shim to hold in place while drying
(maby heat with a light bulb while drying)

We need to check few things here and for that we need a test page

Make sure your printer is ON and unplug the power cord

Now Press and Hold OK and Cancel button at the same time and while holding them plug in the power cord

Once the printer turns on it will say "Derive Clear"

Now press the Right arrow until you see " Service Menu"

Hit Ok here

Now look for print 10 tap test

Hit ok


It will print a test page

Now look at Line 66

And let me know the STAT value it can be 0, 1 or 2

0- Cartridge fine - problem with printer

1- Problem with cartrdige

2- Check the tape on the cartridge

If the scanner light is on, the problem is possibly a driver issue, sometimes the drivers become corrupted. Download the drivers from the HP site and try re-installing, you might need to remove the old drivers first. If this does not cure it, there is likely to be a problem with the scanner lamp

It sounds to me like you have selected an option to print directly from a memory card at one time. Here are excerpts from the user manual for your machine to change printer settings:

Change the print settings

You can customize the print settings of the HP All-in-One to handle nearly any print


Windows users

Before you change print settings, you should decide if you want to change the settings

for the current print job only, or if you want to make the settings the defaults for all

future print jobs. How you display print settings depends on whether or not you want

to apply the change to all future print jobs or just to the current print job.

To change the print settings for all future jobs

1. In the HP Director, click Settings, point to Print Settings, and then click Printer


2. Make changes to the print settings, and click OK.

To change the print settings for the current job

1. On the File menu in your software application, click Print.

2. Make sure the HP All-in-One is the selected printer.

3. Click the button that opens the Properties dialog box.

Depending on your software application, this button might be called Properties,

Options, Printer Setup, Printer, or Preferences.

4. Make changes to the print settings, and click OK.

5. Click Print or OK in the Print dialog box to print the job.

I believe that this should help you get around your issue. Here is a link to the entire user manual for future reference.

  4. Load plain paper in the printer paper tray.
  5. Press the Power button to turn the printer off.
  6. Press the Power button to turn the printer on.
  7. Try printing again. If the printer still does not pick up paper or if a paper jam occurs again, service the printer.

Sounds like your black cartridge is empty and the printer is defaulting to your color cartridge. Check ink level in black cartridge by using the troubleshooting instructions that came with your printer. If you don't have a manual on your computer you can try finding the instructions by accessing the manufacturer's website. Good luck!
