Question about HP PSC 1350 All-In-One Thermal Printer
I have had this printer for about two years now. I havent used it much. A few months ago after normal use I kept recieving errors (check print cartridge) so I bought a new black cartridge and the light stopped blinking and I was able to print for a little while longer (about 20-40 pages). Then the (check print cartridge) started blinking again so I bought a black cartridge (office depot brand). After installing the new black cartridge the light would go off and I could print a few pages before the light came back on. I exchanged the cartridge at office depot for another and tried it again... still after a few pages the (check print cartridge) like blinks. now for about a month or so the printer has been unpluged and unpowered. I tried installing it on my new laptop today to see if i could get it to work this time. I was excited to see it working.. just needed to run a nozzle clean. Then after 3 pages the damn light comes back on. I have tried to do what HP calls a "reset" (hold power & page size button after powerup) but nothing seems to work. I dont want to put any more money into cartridges if this is defective... right now both cartridges are new.. the color is an hp one and the black is office depot (but still has hp stamped on bottom).

Check the date on your ink cartridge. I bet it has expired. If you put in a "new"cartridge but it is even an HP one with an older date, it may not work.
I had my printer stop in the middle of a print job. It was printing fine and suddenly would not print. So I refilled the cartridge with an ink kit I had on hand and reinserted it--no go! Then I opened a remanufactured cartridge (office depot) I had bought some time ago and inserted it. No go, despite the fact I could see ink coming from the jets. I finally gave up and bought a new HP ink cartridge, and it worked just fine. But it bugged me why the new one would work and the other two that seemed just fine would not.
Later I learned that HP has a chip that reads the expiration date on the cartridges and that is what keeps those old ones from printing. I found one trick of setting my date on my computer back to a year earlier than the exp date on the cartridge. I saw the date on the remanufactured one I had tried earlier was 2005, so I set my computer date to today date but year 2004. After forcing me to do print alignments several times and take the remanufactured cartridge out and put it back, I got it to print just fine. And that 2005 cartridge that would not work earlier is what I am printing with right now.
Be advised, though, if you try the date setback, that HP printer will buck and try every way to not let you use that old cartridge. You must say no to reflashing if HP tries to pull that on you. And you will take out and put back that same cartridge multiple times and keep printing alignment sheets 3 or 4 times before you are successful. But, if you persist, you can get it to work.

I searched for the battery to take it out but could not find it. Can someone tell me what it looks like and how to remove it?

Meanwhile I am on the crossroad.
If I buy a new cartridge I will have bunch of cartridges with now warranty that the printer is going to print again. ¨Hopefully there are some more types of printer suitable for the cartrigese (56,58 Anyway thanks for the time and efford to the wise woman

Hey WiseWoman that makes alot of sense. I will check the dates when I get home, but how would the printer know what day or year it is if I dont have it hooked up to a computer? Is there a pin I can short to reset the printer.. maybe its keeping the date in memory using a watch battery (which would explan why it worked for a few pages after having it unplugged for a few months). please let me know what you think..
