Quick How To - Fix HP 5610 Phantom Paper Jam and Cartridge Jam Errors

Thanks jfasher whoever you are...


The HP 5610 has a clear plastic 'ribbon' above the bar supporing the print heads.
The sensor on the back of the cartridge carriage reads the marks on that ribbon to know when it's moving. It was filthy.

There's a similar clear plastic disc on the end of the paper feed rollers.
You've got to disassemble the printer from the top down, carefully disconnecting the data ribbons as you go to get down there. Cleaned it and blew out the sensor it rotates thru and voila! Phantom paper jam gone to the containment unit :-)
