ink jet printer splashes ink bits all over the inside

Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I am using an HP Officejet Pro 8610 printer. Now I find it splashes ink bits all over the inside. Paper edges are becoming dirty after coming out.

ink jet printer splashes ink bits all over the inside



Series was introduced in Mid-2014


The printer is likely almost six years old by now - enough service life that if it is actually splashing ink bits around the inside of the printer,  the printer mechanics may be failing.


If the "splashing" term is simply something lost in the translation to English, and the printer is merely old and in need of a good cleaning, then the following might be helpful:

and perhaps

Color or Black Ink is Not Printing


Before you spend good money on more cartridges, try to determine whether there is something that can be gained without adding that expense.  I am certainly not trying to convince you that your printer is failing.  I do not know this is the case.  I am cautious:  The printer is older (nearly vintage for a printer of this price point and type).  If the problem is actually a mechanical issue, hardware repair, even if possible, would likely not be worth the cost.   Personal observation based on the first statement about "splashing ink".
