Question about HP Photosmart 3210 Printer
All the sudden my 3210 doesn't black anymore, not even a single point. I tried reset + tried to free the ink channel with a wire. no luck.
It is very disappointing that HP keeps quiet, where this is obviously a systematic (hardware?) failure.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US.

I just posted my problem and found the solution on a different web page. It is this and it WORKS
All you have to do is HOLD DOWN FOUR BUTTONS AT THE SAME TIME: ( OK, Cancel, Black , Color ) and turn the power off. Do this at least twice and the unit will power up and go to maintenance. Then it was back to normal.
HP gives you a procedure that doesn't work! They just want to sell you a new one. They must know the solution if and old woman like me can figure it out with help from other people with the same problem

To resolve the issue, use the following steps.
Step one: Remove the cartridges
Make sure that the product is turned on and then disconnect the USB cable from the back of the product.
Open the product cover and remove the cartridges.
Close the cover and wait for a message to insert the cartridges to appear on the control panel display.
Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet and wait for one minute.
Step two: Reinstall the cartridges
Reconnect the power cord to the wall, reconnect the other end of the power cord to the product, and then turn on the product if it is not already on.
Open the product cover and reinstall the cartridges.
Close the cover and print a calibration page, if prompted.
Print a self test report to make sure that the product can print.
Reconnect the USB cable between the product and the computer.

------------- solution 2 ----------------------------------
HP C5180 All-In-One Printer HARD RESET:
Hold down HELP + OK button and unplug printer
Hold down HELP + OK button again as you plug the printer back in.
Then power it on, if it doesn’t power on automatically.
Be Safe: keep holding the buttons until the printer turns itself off. (It took mine less than a minute.)
Now you can release the buttons and simply power it back on.
I got an error message about “improper shut down” since I unplugged it w/out powering down. After I clicked “OK” the printer was just fine and didn’t mind anymore. And now I can print.

The "Ink System Failure" error is causes by air in the ink feed tubes. We have a step by step guide purging the air from the feed tubes posted on our web site. Go to our site at: www.ccl-la.com, click on the printer repair link and then the HP link. Follow the steps and you should be back printing in no time at all.
I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.
