I turn the printer on and it comes up with ink access door open however it is all closed

Thank you for using FixYa

The answer depends on the model. For more than one HP model I found that you can press hold the "#" and "6" as you power up the printer.

For the HP2175 follor this link to bypass the access door--

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

Can I use the black cartridge only in my Hp2175?

You have to have both cartridges in for the printer to work.
To print in black only go to control panel, printers,properties,printing preferences,color then select gray scale.

How come Alignment of Cartridge needs at each printing?

I just go ahead to print and do with what the printer wants me to do. Because I just bought 2 black cartridges, when I use them up, I will buy another printer, different brand, I regretted that I bought Lexmark printer, the ink tube is so little and very expensive. I wish I still had the previous printer . It was still good and new, it has bigger ink tube (1 1/2 times) but the only reason I turned it down, because it was only for printing & copy, it does not have scan or fax which I very seldon use those. Thank you anyway.

Leaking black ink on printed pages

Hi, please attempt to run a numerous blank paper through the printer. This will dry or clean any ink found on the rollers.
Continue to run blank pages through the printer until no more ink is found on the paper, then attempt printing. If ink stains or streaks are still present, the printer may need service.

Printer will not copy

It Does keep asking if it fails to get it right, usually it fails to get scan of alignment page completed correctly because it fails to see one of the colours printed on its alignment page correctly,
I would guess that you should change colour cartridge as well (these I have seen deplete themselves trying print black when black ink is not present.

There is also a way of telling your printer to forget about alignment would you like to know how......Press and hold the Setup button, and then press Options (or Copy Options ).

Here is a link to how an alignment page should look and HP answers to your problem, please rate my solution for me.

Waste ink absorber

The waste Ink absorber is a small, deep sponge, located where the cartridges rest when the printer is idle. Although you can technically reset the counter on the amount of ink held in the absorber, if you overfill it, over time you will start to have color staining on your cartridges, since your carts clean up on it after every cycle, at the extreme, you can have ink residue build up under your printer. Online printer supply shops can sell you a replacement absorber cheap.

However, since I am skilled in the art of "frugal" you can also do things this way. You will need some rubber gloves, rubbing alcohol, and a small prying tool.

1) Locate the absorber at the bottom right of the cartridge path
2) With gloves on, pry up the absorber (if you have the almost full warning, be prepared for some good splatter.)
3) In a small dish with a small amount of rubbing alcohol, shake the absorber around for a short while to moisten the outer ink.
4) Rinse the absorber in a metal sink (porcelain can stain) with more alcohol, then leave it to dry.
5) Replace and make sure the absorber is seated the same as when you took it out.

Then you want to reset the counter for the absorber.
1) Enter the Service Menu by keying = Menu,Scan,Copy,Scan.
2) Use the arrows to navigate to Service Menu Counter Access. then press OK.
3) Use the arrows to navigate to ABS-M Dot Count, press Copy.
4) Use the arrows until the count is zero, press OK then Reset.
5) For good measure, turn the printer off and on.

Bada boom! like brand spankin new!
