    Hp 3210 is leaking ink


    Remove the black ink cartridge and put a piece of tape on it to prevent it from leaking all over your clothes. Find the receipt for the cartridge and return it to where you purchased it from. More then likely your going to have to clean out your entire printer to get rid of the ink that has leaked into it. You have a faulty ink cartridge. Hopefully you purchased a name brand cartridge and can return it. If you need assistance with instructions on how to clean out your printer, please advise.

    Remove the magenta cartridge, and try cleaning the head with alcohol, maybe with a small paint brush or an acid brush. It sounds like ink has dried and plugged up that head.
