Question about HP PSC 1610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

My HP PSC 1610V All-in-One

My printer has the exclamation flashing on it. It says remove and check color cartridges. I have removed it and checked it 10-12 times goes back in just perfect, but never goes away. Yes, it is low on ink. But right now I am just wanting to print in black and white and it will not let me because it has the error code flashing. Do I just need to replace the color ink and can I do something to print with just black until then????

    My exclamation point is flashing and the message screen reads "remove and check right cartridge." I've removed the cartridge a dozen times and cleaned it- no luck. It's a new cartridge so I know it has ink in it. The error occurred right after a paper jam while printing photos.

Hi, I had the same problem. I extracted both cartridges (colour and black), I cleaned both with alcohol and q-tips, I also cleaned in the same way the golden conections of the machine. Reinstalled and works (solved in only 5 minutes).

Important: This problem appeared when I was using the copy function in black and white, not in colour. Thats why I decided to clean BOTH cartridges (the colour one was very clean and black cartridge was the really dirty one).

Don´t ask me why, but it worked. Try cleaning both cartridges.

Hope it would be useful and I appologyze for my english (is not as good as I would like)

Bye

My color cartridge has been filled and placed back into the printer and the light is still flashing with "remove and check the color cartridge" I have followed all steps to clean and re-install...


You need to bypass the out of ink message. If you have a parallel port, you can turn off the "bidirectional support" in the printer section of the control panel

Or you screwed yourself by waiting too long
The ink acts as a coolant for the cartridge. If you waited too long to fill it and burned it up, you will destroy the TSR (thermal sense resistor) and the cartridge is toast.

Message to remove and check color cartridge. When I do it states that the cartridge is missing. Once replaced ... it provides the same message to remove and check.


This occurs when your cartridge develops incompatibility. The permanent solution is to replace the cartridge.  However you may want to clean (with tissue soaked in methylated spirit) the electronic panel of the cartridge to see if this resolves the issue. The electronic panel is the panel with copper dots that makes contact with the cartridge holder.

My HP PSC 1610v keeps saying "Remove and check color cartridge".


Check to see if the installed cartridge is the correct one for the printer. If the cartridge is the proper part number, remove the ink cartridge and make sure all the packaging tape has been removed from the copper circuitry strip on the backside of the cartridge. Reinsert the cartridge and try printing again.
If the error continues, remove the cartridge again and clean the copper circuitry strip on the backside of the cartridge, and the contacts inside the printer, by following the instructions below:
1. Use a clean, dry, soft, lint-free cloth. Locate the copper-colored circuitry strip on the back of the cartridge.
2. Wipe the copper-colored strip with the dry cloth. Use an upward motion, from the nozzle end to the top of the cartridge. Do not wipe the nozzle end of the cartridge or touch the nozzle plate. Wipe the contacts only once.
3. To clean the printer contacts, carefully look for fibers or contamination on the electrical contacts inside the carriage assembly, but do not wipe the printer contacts with any object. The contacts in the printer can be damaged if too much pressure is applied during a wiping process. Try to remove any visible attached debris within the carriage assembly by gently pulling the debris off with your fingers. If the carriage contacts show noticeable damage, contact the Customer Care Center listed in the printer's User's Guide.
Reinsert the cartridge and try printing again. If the error continues, the cartridge may need to be replaced.
Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Thanks.
Have a good day.

My HP PSC 1610v keeps saying 'remove and realign color cartridge' even tho I've put in a new cartridge.


Is it a genuine HP?

If yes then there is a fault with the actual cartridge. Check you have removed the tape from the ink outlet if its still on it will cause theis error. If all appears right, try another GENUINE cartridge and claim the faulty one

Remove and check color cartridges


Checking the print cartridges and cleaning the cartridge contacts. Go to this link from HP and do everything for your 1610 till you get to the bottom of the page:

Flashing exclamation mark


Yea this just happened to me today. Fortunately, all I needed is to clean the color cartridge. Grab a towel and wipe the bottom of the color cartridge throughly. After, put it back in and it should work.

Clean it good, make sure it's definitely cleaned. I had black smudges on mine and had to take it all off b4 it worked again.
