in a HP-PSC-1210, replaced empty HP56 black-inkjet cartridge.
Afterward, printer gave error message AND unable to "dismount" the cartridge.
Finally discovered that an HP57 color-inkjet cartridge had accidentally been mounted/installed. A handyman relative was able to dismount the (wrong) cartridge.

Cradle did not actually jam, though printer would not print.

Will not copy


This means one of the cartridges is defective, they cant align if they cant print. What i did to fix this problem is insert 2 working cartridges and get it to align properly, even if they are low on ink, then lift the cover and the cartridges will move to the center. When this happens pull the power cable out, then insert the full non functioning cartridge. Plug the power cable back in. I tried this with a color cartridge, the color cartridge was non functioning but i was able to print in black. Basically you align the cartridges and then swap them so the printer thinks they are still aligned. The color still doesnt work and it is probably a defective color cartridge.

Error message that paper jam in paper cradle


Try this:
  • open the lid of the printer (from where you can see the ink cartridges);
  • remove the ink cartridges;
  • use warm water and cotton swabs to clean both the ink cartridges and the print head (where the cartridges sit on) off of any ink residue;
  • place the ink cartridges back into the printer and test if this works by printing something.


If you're still having issues, there may be a mechanical problem; in which case you need to get it repaired by someone.




Good luck!

My printer keeps saying print cartridge cradle is stuck clear jam then press ok, but there is no paper jam


Because it's NOT a paper jam, but a cartridge cradle jam, I suppose it's an ink jet printer??? if so, check for debrie arround the cradle shaft that could prevent the printing cradle to move from left to wright... you could also lubricate the shaft by rubbing a little bit of grease on it with the tip of your finger (verry thin layer), as ink sometimes gets on it and tends to become sticky with time...

Error code C000


Follow these steps :
1) Make sure the tank holding all the ink cartridges is properly aligned and can move side-to-side.
2) If it is crooked or can't move, check below it for a paper jam -- when the jam is that bad, the C000 appears to override the normal Paper Jam warning.
3) Make sure none of the ink cartridges has run completely out -- I tend to use them until they're bone dry, and got the C000 error....inserting a new cartridge cleared it right up.
