By Steven Symes

When you encounter a problem with your HP PSC 1610 printer's operation, try resetting the printer to correct the problem. Hewlett Packard recommends resetting the PSC 1610 when you cannot find anything obvious wrong with the printer's hardware and before you begin troubleshooting the printer's software, including on the computer. Resetting the PSC 1610 requires no printer skills or special tools.

Press the PSC 1610's "Power" button once to turn the printer off. Confirm that the printer's "Power" light is no longer illuminated,.

Pull the power cord out of its plug in the back of the printer. Wait 10 seconds, then plug the power cord back into the back of the printer.

Press the "Power" button on the printer again, turning the printer on. Wait for the printer to finish its warm up procedures before continuing.
