Question about HP PSC 2210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

How can I tell if an ink cartridge is empty?

I have an HP 2210 that has worked perfectly. I replaced the black # 56 cartridge. The "align cartridge" message comes up, which is normal. I am sorry to admit that I cannot find where to check for a low or empty color cartridge. I have cleaned the color and black with alcohol and Q tip to no avail. I am now wondering if the color cartridge is empty. Thanks for any help you can give.

    I HAVE THE HP PSP 2210 PRINTER. I WENT TO PRINTER PROPERTIES BUT THERE IS NO MAINTENANCE AREA TO CHECK HOW MUCH IS IN THE CARTRIDGES. I BOUGHT A NEW #56 BLACK CARTRIDGE AND IT WON'T PRINT EITHER.

You didn't mention your operating system so I'll assume that it's Windows. If this is not the case please post additional info...

Many times the ink levels can be checked through the print driver properties and/or the maintenance tab within the printer properties.

Open the printer folder + right click on the printer icon + properties. See if there is a maintenance tab, this will contain the alignment and cleaning utilities also.

Dial says to remove cartridges and check. Have replaced cartridge


After cleaning cartridges and replacing refilled black ink, I removed blck ink and replaced with HP 58 photo ink. this aborted the "check cartridges freeze". I still cannot align cartridges after removing #58 and replacing with new HP 57. the operation starts but will not complete.

Any suggestions on how to align cartridges?

Installed new black ink cartridge per instructions. HP #56 - machine type hp psc 2210 all-in-one. Machine instructed how to run cartridge alignmet check. In all modes machine runs about one half check and...


to complete the alignment it needs to detect the lines printed from both the black and colour cartridges.maybe ur black cartridge is printing the necessary pattern but the colour is not printing so when it tries to read the colour paattern ,it cant read and cancels the alignment and ejects the paper out..it will keep on doing this if it cannot read the both colour and black patterns.see to it that both ur cartridges are printing and working properly.

Printer will not align cartridges


Ensure you are using original HP cartridges. Using refilled/generic inks can cause this problem.
If you are using original inks, try cleaning the contacts of the cartridges gently with isopropyl alcohol. Should it still fail, get them replaced.

The above solution was offered by IrishDruid, posted on Jun 01, 2008. I tried it (using alchohol swabs) it worked perfectly.

Printer will not copy


It Does keep asking if it fails to get it right, usually it fails to get scan of alignment page completed correctly because it fails to see one of the colours printed on its alignment page correctly,
I would guess that you should change colour cartridge as well (these I have seen deplete themselves trying print black when black ink is not present.

There is also a way of telling your printer to forget about alignment would you like to know how......Press and hold the Setup button, and then press Options (or Copy Options ).

Here is a link to how an alignment page should look and HP answers to your problem, please rate my solution for me.
