Hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? Friend try to use thse solutions surely it will help you:
The first item to check is whether your printer is connected correctly to your computer. Check the connecting cable to make sure that the connections are tight. You also should unplug each end of the cable to ensure that none of the connecting wires are bent, making a bad connection. You might also want to change the printer cable. Cables can get old, and the wires inside can break; try a new cable and see whether this change fixes the problem.
caution
HP  psc 1215 all in one   error message - caution_icon.gif Anytime you change any connection between your system unit and any external device (such as your printer), you probably need to turn your computer off and then back on again for the connection change to register with your system. So if you're plugging in cables, reboot your system when you're done.



Next, you should make sure that the printer is connected to the correct port on the back of your computer. Checking the port connection is not always as simple as it seems. Some computers come with more than one printer port, and your printer might be hooked up to the wrong one. If you have multiple printer ports, try plugging your printer into the other ports.
Next, check the paper feed of your printer. If you're out of paper, your printer can't print. You also should check the paper path inside the printer to make sure that no stray pieces of paper are lodged inside. Make certain, too, that your printer is online, or set in the on position.
You should also check to see if your printer is paused. Check your front panel buttons to make sure that your printer is online. You should also double-click the Printer icon in the Windows system tray to open the Print Manger and make sure the job isn't paused from within Windows.
Another potential cause of this problem is having the "manual feed" option selected in Windows or on your printer. If this option is selected and there is no paper in the manual feed tray, your printer just sits there waiting for someone (like, oh, you!) to insert some paper. The solution to this is to either add some paper to the manual feed tray or switch off the manual feed option.
It's also possible that you have the wrong driver installed or selected within Windows. Right-click on this printer's icon in the Printers window and select Properties. Check the Details tab to make sure you're printing to the correct port using the correct driver. If you need to change drivers, pick one from the pull-down list, or click the New Driver button to add a new printer driver.
note
note_icon.gif The tabs in the Printer Properties dialog box are specific to the brand and model of printer you have installed. If your Print Properties dialog box doesn't have a Details tab, look for a Ports or Advanced tab instead.



It's possible that the correct driver is installed, but something has gone screwy with how Windows reads the driver information. Go to the Printers Window and delete the current printer, and then use the Add Printer Wizard to reinstall the printer driver. You might also want to check with your printer's manufacturer to see if there is an updated version of your driver available.
In addition, it's possible that a recently installed device has somehow mucked with your printer configuration in Windows. Try deleting your printer driver and then reinstalling it, as described in the previous paragraph. Because the last device installed on your system can overwrite previous configuration information, go ahead and make your printer the last installed device.
If none of these suggestions solves your problem, you're looking at a major computer or printer problem. Try hooking up another printer to your computer; if the new printer works, it's time to take your old printer into the shop. If the new printer doesn't work, you probably have a defective port in your computer. good luck!

I have an hp psc 1215 all-in-one. My black cartridge won't print. It recognises if I swap it out for a new one, and goes through all the motions. It registers the correct ink levels. The cradle...


The problem is not with the ink-cartridges. You've proved that, by swapping BLACK cartridges.

The problem is that the ink-jets that spray the BLACK ink onto the paper are clogged.
Thus, no BLACK ink reaches the paper.

Open the HP Printing Assistant, and open Utilities, and run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to try to unclog the print-head.

Ink cartridges stuck after replacement


HP PSC 1350.

Very sensitive printer. Due to dust, the catrdges are getting stuck at right side. Please clean the steel roller where the catridges are rested. Clean it with nice cloth and if possible put 3-in-1 oil in that area only for the smooth flow of catridges in that steel stem or roller.

This might happen iif we are not installing the orignal and genuine catridges and there is a chance of ink gettng leaked onto the printer.

Kind advise is if the printer is old, please put an annual maintenace service contract with local authorized hp Printer Dealer which will solve your problem once for all.

have a nice and good working day.

I changed my black ink and now i get the message left cartridge incorrect..how do i fix it?


HP PSC 2210 InkJet Printer. The following has to be done for checking the Blank Ink Catridge working : 01. Remove the existing Black catridge and Color Catridges from the Printer carefully. 02. Clean the location with a soft cloth with cleaning liquid to make the place dust free. 03. Put the correct black and colour cartridges recommended by HP and that too genuine one. 04. Do not use any refilled or reinked local catridges that will spoil the HP PSC 2210 printer. 05. Re-install the catridges both Black and Colour properly. 06. Take a test print out - both black and colour print outs. 07. Check the Printer status and there is no warning of Cartridges wrongly inserted. Have a Good day.

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.
