I had a similar problem of a senseless printer error code with similar useless help from HP for one of my client's HP Photosmart 7510. I also could not find any other relevant help online. But, while searching, I did notice a suggestion to clean the contacts. When I removed the ink cartridge carrier, I noticed a large build-up of ink around the nozzles. Cleaning out the carrier did the trick for me. It couldn't hurt to give it a try.

Follow the steps below if you need them. And, please click "Yes" below if this has helped you at all.

Remove the carrier: Open the printer to access the ink cartridges. Slide out the ink cartridge carrier if it is parked. Remove all of the cartridges. Then flip the lever to the right of the carrier. Grasp the carrier using your thumb on one side and index/middle finger on the right, both near the top, and pull straight upward. Careful, yours may be more full of ink than my client's was.

Clean the carrier: Wash the carrier in a sink with warm/hot water at various angles until all noticeable ink is cleared away. Briefly wash water directly into the carrier's induction screens which contact the sponges of the ink cartridges. This may help a little to flush any ink from the nozzles which might have dried in them while the printer was inoperable.

Remove most of the water: Shake the carrier downward (only while upright) and tip the carrier forward and side ways. But, be careful since some ink will still be contained in the carrier's ink channels. Pay close attention to the induction screens. If you tip it too far or shake while inverted, ink may splash out through the screens or drain back onto the carrier. If this does occur, repeat the cleaning procedure.

Note: Do not attempt to drain all of the ink from the channels, whether through the induction screens or through the nozzles on the underside of the carrier.

Dry the carrier contacts: Lightly wipe the tiny metallic white squares on the backside of the carrier with a dry paper towel. Spot dry the surrounding area, including the nozzle arrays on the underside of the carrier - dab, don't wipe. You should get ink spots on the towel from the nozzles. This is to be expected and is a sign that the nozzles are not clogged (at least not completely).

Inspect the carrier transport: Examine the area with the metal prongs that were exposed when the carrier was removed. Dab dry any areas with ink if you find any, especially near the metal prongs. If you discover any ink on the prongs, use a wet, but drip-dried cloth or towel to continuously dab the prongs until they are clean. Then dab with a dry cloth or towel. Re-inspect and ensure any lint or other debris is removed from the prongs.

Reassemble and test: Return the carrier to the transport, flip the locking lever to the downward position, return the ink cartridges, and then test your printer.

I hope this helped and that all goes well. Please click "Yes" if this has helped you at all.

These printers have been known to have ink system failure errors. This message can also be caused by using compatible or re-manufactured cartridges. We believe the HP Live update software is also responsible for "dobbing" on you if you use any other brand.
A Fix for the ink system failure can be found below Not sure if it will help with your particular error but it wont hurt to try.

What is the problem with the error message: Error:0x88109884?


Does any other information come up with the error code? Some 0x errors can be resolved by removing the ink cartridges and resetting the printer.

Disconnect the data cable from the printer (and the computer - optional but often helpful). With the unit on, remove the ink cartridges, then wait until the message "Insert Ink Cartridges" is displayed on the LCD panel. Then unplug the power cord from the back of the printer (unplugging the unit from the wall is optional but again can help). Wait at least 60 seconds, then plug in the power cord (first to the wall and then the printer). Turn on the printer (if needed). Reinsert the ink cartridges when you see the message. Close all open doors and print a calibration page if prompted to do so. Finally, reconnect the USB cable and try printing. If the error occurs again, the all-in-one needs service. You need to decide if it is worthwhile for you if the unit is out of warranty. See http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00489814&tmp_task=solveCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=422001#N60 for the steps if desired.

If the error includes "Ink System Failure" then other items need to be checked. The cartridges themselves may be clogged or damaged, the printhead may need cleaning or replacing, or the printer may need service. See the link above and follow the link to solutions for errors with "Ink system failure". Note: you can't return a new print head if you replace it and the printer still needs service.

I hope this helps.
