Broken cover for holding printer cartridge for HP PSC 2210 inkjet all in one

My printer has two cartridges. The carriage that holds them has two two bays. The plastic cover for the left one snapped off when I last used the printer. Now it will not print with no cartridge in place there, yet I cannot keep a cartridge in place without the cover to hold it in place securely. Can this be repaired or replaced? Can I do it myself or do I have to have it done at a repair shop? Thanks, Aleida

    HI, the model number is C8654A. It is a HP PSC 2210 all in one inkjet printer. I have discovered that the name of the cover is a latch. I am having great difficulty navigating the HP site to find the part. IN any case, I also discovered that the right latch was also defective and about to break so that needs replacing as well. If you read my subsequent email to the forum, you will see that I cannibalized another old HP PSC 220 that I had to remove its carriage latches and use them. Now even though the latches appear to work, the ON button will not light up, and I keep getting an error message about there being a problem with the right ink cartridge... I think I may have made the problem worse... what can I do now? Aleida

Your printer's manufacturer, Hewlett Packard, offers parts for sale, but you didn't specify your model number, so I couldn't provide you with a link to the specific page. CLICK HERE to select your model and view the list of available parts.

    You might check where the latch on the right cartridge seats to see if there is a micro switch to determine whether or not you've latched it before the printer will allow printing. If the new latch doesn't press on that switch 'just so' it may not sense that the latch is closed, even though your cartidge is seated just fine. If the new latch doesn't have exactly the same shape as the old, it might not press on the micro switch that the other one was designed to, so you may have to bypass the switch (jumper the wires which are connected to it).



    It's also possible that you've gotten foreign matter (dust, dirt or some other debris) in one of the contacts that the cartridge connects to.

YES YOU CAN FIX IT.. AS LONG AS YOU STILL HAVE SOME PIECES OF IT THAT WAS SNAPPED OFF...

YOU CAN GLUE THEM BACK IN PLACE. WAIT FOR A FEW MINUTES TO GET DRY AND PUT THE CARTRIDGE BACK...

USE A SUPER GLUE LIKE "MIGHTY BOND" OR "BULLDOG" OR WHAT IS AVAILABLE IN THE HARDWARE STORE.

I am looking for a color access door for a print carriage on an hp psc2210 all in one printer. (C8654A)


  1. If you are putting in a new cartridge, make sure to remove the tape.
  2. Turn on the unit, then open the print carriage access door. The print carriage moves to the center of the unit.
  3. Fit the cartridge into the proper carriage.
    • The carriage with the gray latch is for the black ink cartridge (HP 56), or the optional photo cartridge (HP 58).
    • The carriage with the blue latch is for the tri-color cartridge (HP 57).
    Slide the cartridge into the carriage at a slight angle, as shown in the illustration above. When the cartridge is fully inserted into the carriage, rock it upright.
  4. Hold the hinged flap of the latch out while lowering the latch.
  5. When the latch is fully lowered, release the hinged flap. It should catch under the tabs on the carriage, as shown in the illustration.
  6. Close the cartridge access door.
  7. The LCD display may indicate that the cartridges need to be aligned. Press Enter on the front panel. You may discard the alignment page that prints.
Remove cartridges
  1. Turn on the unit, then open the print carriage access door. The print carriage moves to the center of the unit.
  2. Press down lightly on the top of each ink cartridge latch and pull the lower section of the latch out to release the cartridge.
  3. Pull the cartridge out of the print carriage and relatch the empty print carriage. The print carriage may move to the right automatically, and if the latch is up, it could be damaged.

Where can I buy the cartridge latch that hold the ink cartridge in place for a hp psc 2210 all in one printer


You will have to probably buy the whole assembly it will cost a lot. Try to find a used broken machine or partsurfer.hp.com will be your best bet. Steven 818-888-0006

HP 6110 check cartridge error won't clear with new cartridges. Anyone know how to fix this?


Hi,

You could try this way first as its a lot quicker and easier than the official steps from HP:

Just hold down the ENTER button and then press the MENU button. There will be a series of 3 fast, high beeps. Then everything resists and is a-okay. Both problems go away.

OR The HP way as listed below:

The ink cartridge-related error messages may occur due to one
of the following reasons:

* The ink cartridge does not make a proper electrical contact
* The cartridge is bad or wrong
* The cartridge is remanufactured or refilled

To resolve the error, follow these steps:

Step one: Check the print cartridges and clean the cartridge contacts

Even if the cartridge is new, follow these steps to clean the print
cartridge contacts. Print cartridges have a substance on the contacts
to keep them from corroding during storage that may cause poor
electrical contact between the print carriage and the print cartridge.

1. Verify that the product is turned on.

NOTE: If the HP product is not turned on, you will not be able to
remove the print cartridges.

2. Open the top cover or the cartridge access door in one of the
following ways:

* Pull the control panel forward and then lift the top section
toward the back.
* Open the access door on the left or right of the unit. This door
may be located under the scanner glass lid on some flatbed
products.
* On many flatbed products, you raise the front center section of
the unit to access the print cartridges.
* Raise the cartridge access door on the front of the product.

3. After the print carriage stops moving, unplug the power cord. You
must unplug the power cord to prevent the print carriage from
moving.

4. Remove both print cartridges.

5. Verify that the part number on the cartridge is the correct part
number for the all-in-one and that the carriage is not blocked
preventing the cartridges from moving. Visit the following HP Web
site for a cartridge compatibility chart.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericDocument?lc=en&cc=us&docname=bpa00586

6. The electrical contacts of the print cartridge are coated with a
thin layer of grease to protect them from oxidation. This grease
may inhibit the electrical connection and should be removed. Using
a cotton swab or cloth lightly moistened with distilled, filtered,
or bottled water, clean the electrical contacts of the cartridge.
This usually occurs with a new ink cartridge, but may also occur
with an older cartridge.

NOTE: When an all-in-one is used frequently for black and white
printing but infrequently for color printing (for example,
an all-in-one that is used primarily as a fax machine), the
color cartridge will still eventually fail and need to be
replaced. The pins in the print carriage can cause dents
on the contact points of the color cartridge over time
(usually between six and twelve months).

7. Wipe the contacts with a dry, cotton cloth.
8. Reinsert the cartridges and lock them in place.
9. Close the top cover or access door and plug in the power cord.
10. If the error persists, repeat these steps. If further cleaning
fails to resolve the error, proceed to "Step two: Clean the
print carriage contacts" section.

Step two: Clean the print carriage contacts

Have the following materials available to clean the print carriage
contacts:

* Cotton swabs or any soft material that will not come apart or leave
fibers (for example, a scrap piece of clean cotton cloth).
* Distilled, filtered, or bottled water (tap water may contain
contaminants that can damage the print cartridges).

CAUTION: Be careful not to get ink on hands or clothing.

To clean the cartridge contacts inside the product, follow these steps:

1. Turn on the unit.
2. Open the top cover or cartridge access door.
3. After the print carriage stops moving, unplug the power cord.
4. Remove both print cartridges.
5. Using a cotton swab or cloth lightly moistened with distilled,
filtered, or bottled water, clean the electrical contacts of the
print carriage.
6. On models equipped with locking latches, lower the latches.
7. Wait five to ten minutes for the contacts to dry and then plug in
the power cord. The unit will begin to reinitialize. Wait until
the process is complete before proceeding.
8. Reinsert the print cartridges when prompted and then close the top
cover or access door.
9. If the message recurs, replace the print cartridge indicated by the
message.

* If you are using refilled or remanufactured cartridges or non-HP
cartridges, replace them with new HP cartridges. HP cannot
guarantee that refilled or non-HP cartridges will function
correctly in HP products.


10. If the problem still exists, replace both print cartridges. Since
the cartridges are electronically connected through the printed
circuit board, the cartridge not indicated in the message might be
the causing the failure.

If the issue still persists, please click on the link below and install
the firmware update:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software3/COL4415/oj-14700-3/HpAiOFWUpdate2_2.exe

NOTE: Clicking the link may give an error indicating it is
invalid. If this occurs, copy the portion of the address
on the remaining line(s) and paste it at the end of the
address showing in your browser until the complete address
is displayed in the Address box.

1. Download the file "HpAiOFWUpdate2_2.exe" to a local hard drive. Make
note where (in which folder) the file gets copied.
2. The hp all-in-one software for the OfficeJet 6100 series must be
installed on your PC before installing this firmware update. The
OfficeJet 6100 series must also be connected to your PC and turned on
before proceeding.
3. Locate the file "HpAiOFWUpdate2_2" on your hard drive and
double-click the file to install the firmware update.


This should resolve the issue. If you need further assistance, please

"Check color cartridge" error message


Try resetting the printer to factory defauts. Hold down the # and 6 buttons. Pull out the power cable while holding these buttons down. Keep your fingers on these buttons and put back the power cable. It should now show (full/partial reset). Follow the prompts and setup all your original features. If this fails then you might have a hardware problem.(Carriage assembly or Cartridge Holder)



GOOD LUCK
