Re: photo printing problem

Try cleaning your ink nozzles or ink jets. It sounds like you have a plugged nozzle or two. Your printer program should have maintenance options that allow you to test for plugged nozzles and clean them.
In control panel, open the printing/fax icon, right click on your printers icon, left click properties, then on the bottom of the page the panel that opens you will see a button that says printing preferences, and that should open your print program.

Just put 2 new ink cartridges in my printer - black and tricolor. the printer receives the message to print, sends the paper through and sounds like it is printing, but then the paper is blank with no ink...


Just remove the new 2 cartridges and rub the print head in a plain paper with isopropyl alcohol until ink flows, and then return the ink cartridges and run the print nozzle for 2-3 times. After that, try to print again.

Please let me know if you need more help.

Error message, cartridge error "cartridge

I'm not sure what ou mean by fairly new. Is it a color cartridge and have you been printing photographs? Is it an HP cartridge or a generic brand? Cartridges are used up very fast if you are printing photos. I print a lot of photos and have found that although they cost more, the cartridges made for each particular printer usually last longer and do a better job. Are the cartridge lights blinking, as they do when yo have low ink?

It could also be a problem with the cartridge. Try removing the cartridge and very carefully use a damp paper towel to gently clean the printer head of the cartridge. Do you get any ink when you do this? If you do, try putting the cartridge carefully back into place. Check the socket where the cartridge goes when you do this. Does everything seem to be in order?

Do a power reset (turn the printer off with the off button, unplug it for a full minute, then plug it back into the wall socket.) turn the printer back on. If you still have the message,
go to this siteâ

You will find a video here for your printer as well as frequently asked questions, a manual download, etc.

Good luck to you.

Poor photo printing quality with new color cartridge

Shaking these cartridges does nothing except give you a little exercise. If this is a brand new HP cartridge you are having problems with I would return it to the store you purchased it from. HP brand cartridges should not give you these problems right out of the box. The print defects you are seeing are due to a dried up or clogged print head. If you like you can try hydrating the print head on a water soaked paper towel until the ink starts flowing, but there's a risk you will cross contaminate the colors.

Use of 852 and 855 cartridge in hp 6210 officejet printer

This quite often happens with CLONE cartridges and happens very infrequent with original cartridges.

The cause is the ink level chip used in clones is quite often a very cheap chinese copy and very prone to failure or misalignment

Either way take them back and get them changed is my advice
