Question about HP PSC 2110 Color Printer
My 2110 all in one will not recognize the new ink cartridge i installed. I get an incorrect ink cartridge message. It also makes a strange grinding noise after i turn it on following the self test. How do I fix this?
When ever i get that message it's when i use a "Non-HP" replacement cartridge...try using a HP catridge, or most likely, the printer has reached the end of it's usefull life!
you can try a "full reset" of the printer by..
-unplug it and let sit for a little while,
-BEFORE plugging it back in, press and hold both the enter and cancel buttons,
-plug the power cord in, and wait to release the buttons until the display on the printer tells you to,
-in many cases, this corrects some problems (especially that awfull grinding/ratcheting noise).
after many years of faithful service, i think mine is officially dead though...even the full resxet doesnt help.

The ginding can often refer to corrupt driver, if you know the cartridge is installed correctly and it's a genuine chipped cartridge, disconnect printer, uninstal driver. Re-install driver and re connect printer, this way you will know it's not a software problem, and the printer may of retired itself. All asuming the catridge isn't faulty!

I hopped out to HP's support site for stats on your cartridge and found some info at this link:
are you using an HP 57 Tri-color cartridge? HP printers work best with HP cartridges and often have problems with refilled cartridges. the grinding noise you're hearing makes me wonder if the cartridge isn't seated all the way in its little carridge (the plastic part that holds the cartridge). have you had a chance to slip teh cartridge back out and try gently slipping it back in again?
here's another link to try for info for this model of printer (HP's support site), with specifics about your error message about half way down the page:
hope this helps!
