    Hi,



    I'm experiencing the exact same thing as wannabeme82. Right now the Alarm light is constantly blinking orange. The LCD screen keeps flashing, "E .. 2 ....7" . And when I try to print something a message pops up that says, "The ink absorber is full. Contact the service center". I have know idea what or where the ink absorber is, or who to even contact to get this fix. Basically the printer is useless at this point. Please help.



    Thanks

HP Photosmart 3210 -Ink System failure - Error 0xc18a0001


In addition to having the ink system failure error 0xc18a0001, my printer screen also read improper shutdown. After trying most of the above solutions with no success, I did a search for the improper shutdown problem. This is where I found my solution!

The solution is under "Printer will not start" the solution post is by speters9971. "...you can try a sem-full reset to factory default conditions by 1. unplugging the power cord while the printer is powered on and 2. press and hold the OK and Cancel buttons while plugging in the power cord."

This is what solved my problem after hours of searching & repetitive similar solutions!!! The above solutions did not help; some of them seemed to be incomplete or irrelevant for my model. I have a HP Photosmart 3210 All-in-One.

Thank you speters9971!!!!!!!

Cartridge error 50c


The most usual solution of this error is to change the catridges ( both ). But it also can't work in some cases. In that case try to locate the protective tape on the catridges. If the tape gives off a sticky stuff onto the catridge contact, the error can come. Try removing the sticky material.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Paper jammed. Once pulled free and clear, it


if you pulled the paper out of a jam and it was not done correclty
5100 is a Carriage Home Position Error.
try cleaning the plastic strip that runs the length of the carriage, it may be contaminated.
Use alcohol and a swab.
Check the lever for the catridge. sometime the catridge does sit properly in the carriage and it will hitt the side of the front cover when it moves. Push the catridge in place to try solve the problem.

It happpens when the Catridge is unable to Communicate with the Printer............. In this case what i would request you to do is............... Unplug the Power Supply from the Printer When u remove the cover of the Printer behing the Catridge carrier which holds the catridges u will see a thin long transparent strip which looks like a Tap........... Take a Dry Paper Towel and Gently wipe that tape from right to the left it is very delicate so pls do it gently............ Now Take out both the Catridges from the Printer.............. Move the Catridge carrier which holds the catridge, From right to the Left and From Left to Right for abt 10 Times............... Now u can insert both the catridges in and Turn On the Machine.......... Good Luck

Printer MP160 service error 5010 after refill catridge


I had refilled the catrige, then when I start to print a 'service error' window will appear. At the LCD screed shows E.. 4 ..2. I believe the printer simply assume the catridge is depleted, but how can it happened as I already just refilled it.
How to make printer detected the catridge as a full? I really hope you can solve and make my refilling mission succesful and my printer work again.

Error code


Hi Jakabi. That error code means there's a defective module in the printer. It's not user replaceable, unfortunately. The only solution is to contact the store where you bought it, or Canon's tech support to get a replacement. That comes directly from Canon support ! I know it isn't what you'd like to hear, but unfortunately it's the only way out of it. Thanks ! cheebster.
