    I've been using the approved HP cartridges ever since I bought this printer, but suddenly started seeing this "Remove and check color cartridge" message yesterday.  There's no indication that the cartridge is even close to empty, and it's been printing fine all along.  I took the cartridge out and put it back in, turned the printer off and on, rebooted my MacBook, and even installed the latest HP printer driver, but the message remains.  You'd think it would let me print in black only, but it won't.  I tried calling HP Tech Support, but after giving them all my info and waiting to be transferred to Level 2 support, I got a message saying Macintosh support is closed on weekends.

    I have exactly the same problem. I will let you all know if chanign the cartridge does NOT solve the problem. I sthere a warranty on the cartridge. Printing in color is expensive enough without HP producing shoddy parts that slow you down and cost you more money.

I have this same problem...and here is how I "fixed" it. I cleaned the connection points first off. I still received the same message. There is a little metal peice that the cartridge fits into(it kind of looks like the easter egg holder that you dye easter eggs with)...I just pushed that peice up a little so the cartridge would fit the way it is suppose to. I then received a message that my cartridge was the wrong type. So I pushed the little metal peice down a smidge...then it worked. I just "fixed" it so I can't say for how long it will stay that way...but for now it works. Hope this helps!!!!

The message "Remove and check


Hi skmearle,

Things to check before knowing you most likely have damaged circuits in the printer.

- Have you placed the cartridges securely inside until you can feel its locked in?
- Another common mistake people make is forgetting to remove the plastic/paper tab that is placed on the cartridge to protect the electrical circuits on it and also leaking ink.
- Also; double check the compatibility of the type of cartridge youve bought.

Good Luck,

kc

"Remove and check color cartidge."


ok the problem is very common.initially remove both the cartridges.then unplug the printer from main outlet and plug back in.this will reset the printer circuit.then after u on the printer bring back the cartridge carriage to cartridge installation position.then first clean the circuit in the carriage that touches and sense your cartridge circuit with a damp cloth.both colour and black carriage circuit.then clean the cartridge circuit too even if its new.then install both the cartridges and close the door and off the printer again and on it after 30 seconds atleast.then check it should work normally.

Remove and check color cartridge


I cleaned mine with alcohol and Q-tip and then shook it 25 times to insure that the ink was penetrating the application lines. My hunch is it first got dirty, and then dried up on the exterior prevent additional ink from leaving the cartridge.

Remove and check color cartridges


Checking the print cartridges and cleaning the cartridge contacts. Go to this link from HP and do everything for your 1610 till you get to the bottom of the page:
