Question about HP PSC 1210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Scanner/copier problems My HP PSC 1210 works only after I have just recleaned the print head for the black printer cartridge. I clean it by wiping it down with a tissue. It will work reasonably well for the next hour. The next day, it doesn't give a readable copy at all. I tried putting in a new cartridge. The behavior was the same.

Re: scanner/copier problems

It sounds like you may have a pipe or nozzle clogging up. Check my previous posts about underhead cleaning and follow the routine. This should get you on your way. It may also be worth adding a little solvent to the cleaning station before completeing a final head clean cycle throught the driver or printer panel. Check my orevious post here:

HP printer PSC 1210 black cartridge error. The black cartridge does not work and the blinking light is always on when I plug in the cartridge.

Black cartridge error usually means that the contacts on the cartridge have blown or that they might be dirty. That's why the printer says it has a problem. Remove the cartridge, wipe the contacts with a dry cloth and put it back in. If it still gives you the same message, you will need to buy a new cartridge.

Cant print black or do black and white copies

He's not saying that the black cartridge won't print (which would warrant cleaning the heads, or messing with the cartridges) -- I have the same problem that MarkDan is having as well... no matter what you select as the output from any "Print" dialog window, the HP 21xx and 12xx series printers _always_ print in full color. You can choose Black and White, Greyscale, Color -- doesn't matter what you choose in the dialog boxes, it utterly ignores you, and will always print in color.
I have no idea why it does this, but it's eating a _ton_ of color ink for no good reason. I have searched all over the Web and on HP's site, but solution has been found.

I have a hp psc 1210 all in one,it is playing up with print outs, is it possible for me to replace the print head on this model Rick

HP printers use cartridges that ARE the print head. On occasion, the cartridge could be defective...especially if they are the remanufactured type. Try replacing your cartridge with a new HP cartridge.

My copier won't print.

Are you sure that your scanner bulb is working. You may hear the scanner moving but the bulb may be burned out which will cause you to get blank pages.
