Question about HP PSC 2110 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer


HOPE YOU CAN HELP!!! When I turn on the printer it goes through the set up sounds, cartridges go back and forth, but then starts to make a different sound and then goes in to sort of sputtering, ttttt, ttttt, ttttt noise. I have tried to take the machine apart and the sound is coming from under the button panel. I can't get to that spot to see what is there. After about a minute it stops, the green lights blink and the machine does nothing. If I press start, it sounds like it wants to copy, but then just says busy. When I lift the top I notice the light on and the part(looks like a bar) in front of the light, moves back (toward the button panel) in spurts too, and thats it. I have tried in the past to just keep shuting and restarting, and once in a while, if I'm lucky, it works, but most of the time it doesn't. The printer is about 4 years old, do I junk it or do you think it can be fixed??? HELP!!!

Hp psc 2110

hello, let me start by asking a question giving a few tips. Hopefully things will work out.

First, you said, "you have replaced the cartridge. "
Did you just replace it?

Remove the cartridge and make sure you take off the little sticker tab the covers the print head. I have had many customers over the years that have made this simple mistake.

If this is done. I want you to place the ink cartridge back in properly.
Next power off and unplug your printer.

Wait about 1 minute and plug back in a power back on.
at this point and time it should ask you to do a new new cartridge printer alignment calibration page.

If it does not prompt you to do so please refer to your manual on how to manually do one.

If you do not have your manual let me know. I can do further research and help you with that too.

More that likely this simple procedure will reset your printer and help it recognize there is a new cartridge placed in the machine.

hope my advice helps .. if you appreciate my help lease remember to leave a good rating and a testimonial.

If problem is unsolved please write back for more problem solving.

Hp psc 2110 incorrect ink cartridge message.

Hi plabonne,

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!

Hp 2110 All in One Printer

Does the machine ask you to "align" the print cartridges when you turn the machine back on? If the alignment page when finished printing is missing a key color (say yellow), then the alignment will not succeed.

Hp psc 2110 incorrect ink cartridge message.

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.
