Question about HP OfficeJet 6110 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer


I installed a new 56 Black cartridge in my HP 6110 all-in-one, but did not use it for a while. Then my wife tried to print a Word doc and it keeps on printing incomplete letters. Most of the lines look like either the top or bottom of the characters are not there and some letters are very light.

I've tried both cleaning and aligning steps with still the same result.

Any thoughts?

Thanks, Ron

New HP 56 cartridge prints green

hello, are you sure its green, since this is a black in cart, only thing i can think of is machine not printing black , and the color ink cartridge is contaminated, this would be due to the docking area for the cartridge, on the left side of machine, there are 2 black rubber cups that the ink cartridges move over to seal. sometimes these cups have residual ink, which will contaminate the new inks. clean these black cups, and replace inks

Replaced ink cartridge 56 and black print text is


Remove the cartridge and use a damp paper towel, wipe the bottom of the cartridge several times. Each time you wipe you should be getting black streaks on the paper towel. After manually cleaning the cartridge nozzles you will need to use a new tower and wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge. When this is done reinstall it and run a cleaning and then an alignment procedure from the printer software. You should be printing good again.

I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

Hp officejet 6110 not printing. Can't get out of "align cartridge"mode.

printer problem call up hp at 1-800-474-6836 and ask them for an upgraded printer which you will get at 50-60% cheaper than the original and its a factory new printer.But it is definitly not free.
What you have right now is a hardware problem and the printer is dying so change it fast while this offer is available

Installed new black ink cartridge per instructions. HP #56 - machine type hp psc 2210 all-in-one. Machine instructed how to run cartridge alignmet check. In all modes machine runs about one half check and...

to complete the alignment it needs to detect the lines printed from both the black and colour cartridges.maybe ur black cartridge is printing the necessary pattern but the colour is not printing so when it tries to read the colour paattern ,it cant read and cancels the alignment and ejects the paper will keep on doing this if it cannot read the both colour and black patterns.see to it that both ur cartridges are printing and working properly.

Hp officejet 6110 not printing with black ink

Hi lilacky-

Here are some HP support links that might be helpful... and a couple questions to consider.

Q: Is your new cartridge one of these listed below?
"The HP Officejet 6100 series and HP Digital Copier Printer 410 products use the print cartridges listed below:
* HP 56 black print cartridge
* HP 57 tri-color print cartridge
* HP 58 photo cartridge (replaces the HP 56 black print cartridge for six-ink photo printing)" info from: Installing a Print Cartridge Is your new cartridge a refilled cartridge? Some times those have special challenges. Has your cartridge been sitting a while in the box, maybe in a warm spot? Some times even new cartridges dry out a little. Was your old cartridge low or completely gone? Just as a test, if you put it back in your printer does the old cartridge work? Any printer error messages? Can you print a test page or an alignment page for your black cartridge? These might be too many questions but here are some HP support links with some How To information for getting more answers. Please let me know if any of these are helpful. see also: Slow or No Response from Printer -JW

HP 6110 All in one

Various models do different things so you will have to checkout some stuff. 1. black is green- what it mean is if you take some black ink and wet it to dilute it will sh0w dark green then lighter etc., because black is all colours mixed. In most printers when a 'black' document is printed actually all colours are printing - take a look under a magnifying glass. Some printers however allow for 'black' only printing. But you have to set it up. So check your manual and software or what comes up on the screen. Then come come back
