I need Help fixing my HP Officejet 4215 All in One it keeps saying Cartridge Error and wont let me print anything.

Try reinstalling the printer drivers and software and plug connecting to the pc too
If problem still persist
There may be a problem in the cartridges holder
Then you have to connect with the customer care of the printer.
Or have to buy new printer easily and cheap at ebay

4215 cartridge error

Hi there ok Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

HP 4215 all in one printer. Cartridge error

Hello Barry
It is odd that the machine is not telling you which one.Mine usually does.Okay
the best way and cheapest way for you to figure out which one it is, the unit takes a HP 56 and HP 57,which are very common carts,used in the HPs today,If you can get your hands on two
different carts and exchange them around you will be able to find out which one it is.They do not necc. have to be full ones.Once you find out which one it is get a new one.I would be willing
to take a guess it is your black one

Cartridge cradle can't move, says paper is empty when it's not

OK....try removing the carts, close the printer, turn off, then disconnect...alot of the problems with the newer HP printers has to do with their ROM memory....if that doesn't work, then there is defintely something in the paper path, no matter how small. Try to eliminate the copy function....does the error happen as soon as the printer is finished powering up??

HP 22 color ink cartridge was put in cradle for HP 21 black ink

sounds like it is stuck ... suggestion is pull as hard as you can danger is you might break the cradle in the scoket ...

this issue can not be resolved via remote and someone with some
strength is needed

No cartridge found error

One or more ink carts aredodgy, fit gen new brother inks (x4)

On inks carts there is a flag inside them that normally floats, when it sits down due to ink level being low it blocks a photocell to stop machine from working, it needs to do this to stop any air getting in ink lines, so inks may appear to have ink in them but will not work, on some refill/aftermarket carts flag gets stuck
