A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Preferably a service manual.

I've been given one of these following a upgrade at an office. It's faulty but only so far as the printer head not reaching the far right side of the machine where the cleaning section is.

The online stuff from HP on clearing this fault doesn't give much beyond 'check for obstruction'. I would rather resort to dismantling only after seeing if this is a common issue with this model as I'll probably end up breaking something important.

Thanks in advance

So, armed with no information, I've taken her apart and..........

......she works. Well sort of. The cleaner tray is a floating affair and appears to have come adrift from the mounting points. Now reset and the printer head is doig what it should do (apart from print).

Just downloading the drivers and looking for a couple of cheap cartridges.
