Question about HP Officejet 7210 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Keep getting this error message
what should i try?
Install a new cartridge or clean the contacts on both the back of the cartridge and the contacts where the cartridge is plugged into, with warm water. Dry both then reinstall. Make sure neither show any damage. I have seen inkjet printers where a small hole is poked into the traces where the cartridge installs into the printer, destroying it.

1. Verify that the unit is switched on. Disconnect power cable from All-in-One and also from wall outlet.
2. Wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug in the power cable to All-in-One and also to wall outlet.
4. Check for the functionality.

If it's a new cartridge one of two possible problems has occured. 1.) The cartidge is not seated fully in the cartridge tray, or 2. when you removed the protective strip from the cartridge a small piece tore off and is stuck to the cartridge. This is a frequent problem. Uder good lighting check for any small stips of clear tape arounf the cartidge nozzels.
In addition, make certain cartifge is fully inserted in tray and locking mechanism is secure.
It sounds surpisingly simple, but I doubt anyone can say it hasn't happened to them at least once.
If it's an old carteidge the nozzel may be clogged. Remove the cartridge an either clean the nozzells with a moist Q-TIP, or dip the entire nozzel section in warm water for a few seconds. Put cartridge back in printer and print a test page. If you cleaned the nozzel with water you may finf you test page smeared with some water, but this will clear up.

Testimonial: "Great idea I will try it."
pull out the cartridge and shine a flashlight in and look at the flex circuit. Mine got damaged by the cartridge spring which gets loose. I think this is a common problem caused by a design defect. I am trying to talk to HP about it now.

SOURCE: Remove and check color cartridge
the problem is the little poorly designed metal thing that is holding up the ink cartridge get's stuck between the cartridge and the printed circuit and it brakes the circuit.must have been some **** drawering on a napkin that came up with that one.wasted a nice unit for that two cent piece of metal.
