Very simple cartridge. Check the chip on the bottom to be sure that nothing is on the contacts. Try installing the old cart and see what happens. Fortunately, these are not very expensive. Install the old one, unless you ran it until it locked the printer out.

My HP photosmart 3210 skips lines on the black ink only. The other colors print fine.


(The obvious) Replace the black cartridge. Even if ot says you have ink you could have a faulty cartridge, even if it has worked fine in the past. (The not so obvious) Clean your printheads/nozzles. Repeat the process a few times.

Color ink cartridges not working. I tried cleaning the printer heads many times and also followed pineworks' suggestions. Still doesn't work. I even put in some new ink cartridges. Only the black cartridge...


turn printer off. take all ink cartridges out. look at where the ink is dispensing to see if the tape is still on the cartridge of blocking the ink from coming out, if so remove. when touching the area where the ink comes out, be very careful.
look into the printer where the ink dispenses into the printer, look and see if anything is blocking the hole.
hope this works and good luck

Printer does not recognize new ink cartridge


Are you using "refilled" hp cartridges? If so, they may be interpreted as "empty" or a non-hp cartridge if the carrtidge shell was manufactured prior to the recent time that hp began coding the electrics on the same type cartridges. This can also happen if you are using "compatibles". If this is the case, try buying original new hp carts. If that is what you already have, return the cart to the store as defective and as for a replacement.

Have a photosmart 3210 all in one and i just want to print in black and it wont because a color cartridge is empty is there any way to bypass this


Remove the color cartridge, it will run on "Ink economy mode" or something like that. It WILL print from windows but the copier wouldn't work, displaying error. The copier needs both cartridges installed to work.

Colour cartridge missing but I only want to print


No you cannot. Each one of your cartridges is smart chipped. When this cartridge registers as empty it acts as an on/off switch thus turning the printer off.'

You need to replace the empty cartridge in order to print.

Go printer settings and check option to print only black.

Black Ink shows empty even after installing on HP Photosmart 3210


These cartridges are really only ik resovoirs for the printer. It does have an ink flow sensor, though. If the printer does not recognize the ink level, it is possible that you got a cart with a bad chip. I refill these alot, and all you can really do is check the chip on the cart and make sure nothing is on the contacts...otherwise replace. A good step would be to put the old cart in and see what happens...
