Question about HP PSC 1210 All-In-One InkJet Printer
This issue occurs when there is a hardware/mechanical problem with the All-in-One.
Please remove both the catridges from the All-in-One.
Using a clean, dry lint-free cloth (a coffee filter works well), wipe the cartridge contacts, from the top to the bottom. The contact area of the cartridge should be rubbed briskly to remove the waxy lubricant material from the gold contacts.
The contacts inside the printer may also require cleaning. Using a clean, dry, lint-free cloth. Gently wipe the contacts, from the top to the bottom. Move the print cartridge carriage manually. Reinsert cartridges in to the All-in-One. Close the door. Disconnect the All-in-One from the wall jack power source and reconnect after 10 seconds. If the issue persists.
Reset the All-in-One to the factory default settings by using these instructions:
1. Disconnect and then reconnect the power cord.
2. When the lights begin to flash, press and hold On/Resume and Number of Copies.
When only the On/Resume light is flashing, release the buttons.
When the On/Resume light is steady, the reset is complete.

Tips for a great answer:
A flashing exclamation mark is typically associated with a sever cartridge error (i.e. "refer to documentation" / "incompatible cartridges", "print
cartridge(s) problem" etc.) typically indicates the internal micro-electronics
of the HP #901 / 901XL cartridge are damaged. Have you tried replacing the ink cartridge with a new HP genuine cartridge to confirm?
NOTE: The cartridge's electrical wire
runs at rear and lower side of the ink cartridge are very delicate and are somewhat
susceptible to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. In
addition, the older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal
electrical failure. I suggest you first run a 'Tap 41' diagnostic test to
check cartridges electrical health (this is a forced test); you may also bypass
the error (temporarily) on all models which use HP 901 cartridges. Refer to
