You have two possible problems:

1. The inkhead is dirty.
2. You are almost out of ink.

Here's what I can suggest.

Run a printhead clean up via the printer's control panel or clean the inkhead with a clean wet cloth. You should use a warm water to wet the cloth. Make sure that the inkhead is dry before putting it back or using it again in your printer.

By the way, I know a software that works great with any operating system. It's a technician software. What it does is it automates your computer's maintenance mechanism. If you are interested, then look up RADARSYNC in google and install it. I'm actually using it as well.

Replacing the print head
The print head may need replacing if, after all print head and ink tank troubleshooting has been performed:

  • The nozzle test appears broken or to have horizontal white streaks.
  • One or more of the colors is missing from the Nozzle Test.
  • The colors are incorrect on the Nozzle Test.
  • A print head error is indicated on the unit.
  • The printer powers off when the print head is installed.
I hope it helps!!!

Brown background instead of white


You are probably out of ink in one or more cartridges. You need to do a diagnostic print and take the print to the ink supply vendor to get the correct replacements.

Printing won't work.


Good day sir/maam, hi, when you test print it usually prints letters and no lines are printed. try first if the printer is setup to economy/draft or pictures, if lines are faded, the ink cartridges maybe dirty. manual cleaning is needed, the ink path starts from the ink cartridge to the cradle or carrier then to paper. so any dried ink that blocks the path can affect the printout. you can use warm water to loosen dried ink. remove the cartridges and cradle from the printer as you clean them.

How much ink is left?


Tip: If you're printing invitations, you're going to use a lot of ink..get a spare set of ink.
No. There is no way to know how many more pages, because, if you think about it, printing a photo (or invitation), obviously uses far more ink than, say, a letter.

Normally when you install the print software you install HP Director or solution centre software that has a estimated ink staus monitor..from user manual

Check the estimated ink levels You can easily check the ink supply level to determine how soon you might need to replace a print cartridge. The ink supply level shows an estimate of the amount of ink remaining in the print cartridges. Tip You can also print a self-test report to see if your print cartridges might need to be replaced. For more information, see Print a self-test report. To check the ink levels from the HP Director (Windows) 1. In the HP Director (or HP Solution Center), click Settings, point to Print Settings, and then click Printer Toolbox. Note You can also open the Printer Toolbox from the Print Properties dialog box. In the Print Properties dialog box, click the Services tab, and then click Service this device. 2. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab. The estimated ink levels for the print cartridges appear. To check the ink levels from the HP Image Zone software (Mac) 1. In the HP Director (OS 9) or HP Image Zone (OS X), choose Settings, and then choose Maintain Printer. 2. If the Select Printer dialog box appears, select your HP All-in-One, and then click Utilities. 3. From the pop-up menu, choose Ink Level. The estimated ink levels for the print cartridges appear.

Print a self-test report If you are experiencing problems with printing, print a self-test report before you replace the print cartridges. This report provides useful information on several aspects of your device, including your print cartridges.
Load letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper into the paper tray.

Press and hold the Cancel / Resume button and then press the Start Copy Color button
The HP All-in-One prints a self-test report, which might indicate the source of the printing problem.

Printer problem with 6210 all in one.


Try to print a self test page from the printer itself, do these:
  1. Press and hold the Cancel and the Color buttons at the same time.
  2. Release both buttons.
  3. The Self Test Report will be printed.
and check if it is the same output, if yes then follow the steps below:
  1. Some of the ink cartridge ink nozzles may be clogged with dry ink. Use the ink cartridge cleaning service to try to clear them. Follow the steps below:
  2. Verify that there is plain white paper in the Input tray.
  3. Press Setup .
  4. Press c00712200.gif or c00712201.gif to select Tools and then press OK .
  5. Press c00712200.gif or c00712201.gif to select Clean Print Cartridge and then press OK . The unit prints a test page.
  6. Examine the test page. If the print quality of the page is good, stop here. If the print quality appears to be getting better, run the Clean Print Cartridge utility again
  1. If the self test appears better, Increase the copy quality setting (Normal or Best) and try copying again. If the quality is still poor, continue to the next step.
  2. If the quality is still poor, one or more of the cartridges may be low on ink or empty. Follow the steps below to check the ink levels.
  3. Open HP Solution Center .
  4. Click Settings .
  5. Click Print Settings .
  6. Click Printer Toolbox .
  7. Click the Estimated Ink Levels tab
  • Replace any ink cartridge that is low on ink.
  • If the ink levels are not low, clean the cartridge face and electrical contacts at the back of the print carriage.
    1. Open the front of the unit to access the ink cartridges.
    2. After the ink cartridges are at the center, unplug the power cord from the back of the unit, and remove the ink cartridges. The power cord must be removed to ensure that the unit is not damaged during the cleaning process.
    3. Clean the cross-hatched area of the ink cartridge with a soft clean cloth that is slightly dampened with clean water to remove any build up. Avoid cleaning the ink cartridge nozzle plate. Cleaning this area can force foreign matter into the ink nozzles and plug them.
  • With a soft lint free cloth slightly dampened with clean water, clean the copper-colored contacts on the back of the ink cartridges.
  • Allow the cartridges to dry before reinserting them.
  • Close the unit, and plug the power cord back in.
  • Print a self-test page to check the results. Follow the steps below to print a self-test page.
    1. Press Setup .
    2. Press c00712200.gif or c00712201.gif until Print Report displays and then press OK .
    3. Press c00712200.gif or c00712201.gif until Self-Test Report displays and then press OK . The self-test report prints.
    If the problem is not corrected by cleaning the ink cartridges, replace the ink cartridge(s).
    IF THE SELF TEST REPORT IS CLEAN, THEN TRY TO PRINT FROM ANOTHER SOFTWARE LIKE PAINT, NOTEPAD AND IF THE OUTPUT IS OK THEN THE PROBLEM IS ON THE SOFTWARE THAT YOU ARE USING
