Re: help

Even if you are out of warentee, HP will cover their cartridges from 2 years from the manufacture date which is listed on the cartridge itself. If you go through more than 2 cartridges that are the same (NOT REFILLED, NOT REMANUFACTURED) then HP will replace it. There is a microchip in the cartridge itself which registers it's been in a printer before and if that has happened and it's remanufactured or refilled It goes "HEY I"VE BEEN USED" and rejects. - It's not the printer, it's probably the cartridge. Remember, that printer is almost 4 years old, things are bound to go wrong with hardware too (dried up ink in system clogging ink paths is common in old printers)

I cannot get my printer to print in only black and white. I have put new ink cartridges in, both color and black. I have selected "print in gray scale only" in the print options. But anything I...

Please take out the new cartridges and re-position them correctly i.e. color cartridge on the left and black cartridge on the right seating. Check that you hear a click sound when the cartridge is placed in the seating. Print a test page. Then switch off the printer for some time. Re start the printer and now carry out the gray scale printing.

Hello. How do you clean the cartridge as it is a little dried up for printer HP PSC 1210 all in one printer?

Ink is a lubricant for the print heads. Some color ink is used even if you only print in black or vice-versa. If you printed with a color missing, you could destroy that print head from the friction of running without ink to lubricate it. That's why most printers won't allow you to print with a color missing even if you aren't using it.

If you allow a color to go empty, the residual ink in the head could clog and become permanently blocked. You would never be able to print that color again. So always replace ink cartridges as soon as they are empty.

The best solution for you is to buy some isopropyl alcohol from chemist, which is a great solvent for dried ink, and drop 8-10 drops into the ink nozzle, put it back in and try running a few prints then repeat the process. If it doesn't help, you will be better off buying new ink cartridges.

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

I have a hp psc 1210 all in one,it is playing up with print outs, is it possible for me to replace the print head on this model Rick

HP printers use cartridges that ARE the print head. On occasion, the cartridge could be defective...especially if they are the remanufactured type. Try replacing your cartridge with a new HP cartridge.
