    Printer making loud clicking noises when turned on and then wont print anything

    My HP 2510 all in one printer is making really loud clicking noises when i turn it on and the hourglass thing just looks like it is still working it all out. it then wont print anything.
    i have checked i have update drivers and i have also unplugged everthing and turned on again without success.
    Does anyone have any ideas please.

    My p[rinter make a noise similar to this when the ink cartridge isn't in quite far enough.....

    make sure you dont have anything stuck inside the printer that its clicking against when you turn it on

    So its not going well then? :?

    Looked on another forum and found out it was some mirrors inside the printer that needed cleaning. We took the thing apart, bit scarey, and cleaned them and its working now. The guy said because the mirrors were dirty the scanning part of the set up of the printer was not working and it was constantly going through that process.
    I feel like a complete computer nerd. Cant believe we took the thing apart but we decided as it wasnt working we had nothing to lose.
    Thanks for your answers.
    I will be taking a computer course next.....lol
