Question about HP PSC 2175 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My HP 2175 all in one printer won't print.

I keep getting an error message that reads "remove and change cartridge". I did that and replaced the expensive cartridges and still get the same error message. I turned the unit off and waited and re-connected ...still same message. HP support said it was a hardware problem and I need to purchase an upgraded printer. I really can't afford a new one right now.

    I tried that and it didn't work. Thank you so much. Any other ideas?

    They are brand new HP inkjet cartridges. Never used any off brand or refills.Neither new ones or old ones will change that error message.

    Are the cartridges that you are using genuine? or remarketed?

Hello tabbeach. The printing cartridge align page message appears if u have any alignment job pending, if it asks to print the alignment page. Follow the steps provided here.
Still if u are facing the same issue, perform a HP Media sense caliberation , which in most cases will resolve the issue
the steps to perform media sense calibration are provided here .

2175 printer

This is a typical error with the 2175 / 2100 series.
1.) Error comes up if ink in cartridge's ink level gets too low.
2.) The ink cartridge's copper contacts are dirty. Dirt you can't see. Clean contacts with alcohol & cotton swab's (not dripping).
3.) The carridge contact's need cleaning. (Same as above).
4.) The cartridge, (even though new, can be defective).
5.) You are using a "refill kit" of some kind to refill ink cartridge's.
6.) After 1-5, re-set the printer. Power off printer wait a minute & power back on.
