    So i have an HP 5150 that i had when i bought my powerbook (Aug 2004) its been fine till the other day when it keeps on getting jammed. My friend was printing labels out and ever since then it hasn't been working. I looked to see if a label was stuck on the gears but their is none. Any ideas on why its jamming up all the time? Do u think its time has come, it is a pretty cheap printer?

    On a side note, anyone have experience with the HP photosmart 3210 All in one or 3310?

    If you open up the case of any HP inkjet printer, you'll find Satan's autograph molded into the plastic. You can try finding all the friction wheels and cleaning them with alcohol (WD-40 might even work better if your opponent is label goo), you might get lucky. But you're right, with those printers selling for about as much as an ink cartridge, it may not be worth the bother any more.
