  1. Verify that the control panel overlay is not holding the Setup button down.
  2. Verify that nothing is stacked on top of the unit that might put pressure on the Setup button.
  3. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the unit to turn off the all-in-one.
  4. Press and hold the Setup button and connect the power cord to the back of the unit to take the unit out of No Mech Mode. Release the Setup button.

If you have completed all of the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service your product.

My color cartridge has been filled and placed back into the printer and the light is still flashing with "remove and check the color cartridge" I have followed all steps to clean and re-install...

You need to bypass the out of ink message. If you have a parallel port, you can turn off the "bidirectional support" in the printer section of the control panel

Or you screwed yourself by waiting too long
The ink acts as a coolant for the cartridge. If you waited too long to fill it and burned it up, you will destroy the TSR (thermal sense resistor) and the cartridge is toast.

Every other line prints only bottom half of text.

I have a psc 2355 printer which only prints half of text then the next lines are ok then it repeats only printing half text. I removed my ink cartridge and wiped the ink ports with a tissue heavily moisten with water. Repeated this several times and then gently dried with a tissue. The problem was fixed!!

If you lift the front center of your printer, you will be able to see where the ink cartridge is located.

HP PSC 1610V All in one printer

Try unplugging the power cord on the printer, hold the power button in for a few seconds, plug the power cord back in and turn printer back on. That should clear the error if it is stuck in the printer's memory.

Problem with ink cartridge

There is something broke with the piece that keeps it in place. You need to take it out and look real close to how it works. Look at how the color works and compare the two.
