Error message on photosmart 8150

Error says cartridge service station is stuck. I think I have a part that is supposed to be somewhere on the left side of the printer - inside - can I take it apart to check it out? I had a paper jam and cleared it and then unplugged to clear messages...no go and still have this extra piece.

Well, what you want to do is you will see a wire coming from your cartridge, pull that wire (not hard) just so that way you can move the cartridge and you should be able to fix that problem.

How do I free a stuck cartridge service station.


Hi,

These are generally pretty easy, they are supposed to move to the center whenever you open the lid. However, there are quite a few things that can stop this from occuring,

If you have a print job in the que, or a camera card in one of the readers it needs to finish what it has qued before it can continue.

Remove any camera cards, close the lid and power down your computer. Then turn off the power to the printer. Remove the printers power cord and wait thirty seconds. Plug it back in and give it a minute to get through it's warm up. While it's warming up listen for the normal sounds of the head moving back and forth.

If you don't hear the sound it's likely a mechanical failure in the printer, if you do when you open the lid now it should move to the center to allow you to load the new ink.

If it doesn't you can post back here for additional info or go to:

enter the chat with an online hp support tech as they have more detailed info for you to diagnose the issue.

Hope this helps FixYa,

HP 8150 Wont Print in color


Hi i have simular problems i think. i did getting a fault on my cartridge and the fault message i getting tells me that something is wrong with cartridge and printer will print in backup mode by takeing away the black cartridge, i did try to change to a new black cartridge and the same problems appear.
After some investigating of this problem it seems to be a kind of delikat on my printer, inside where the black cartridge should be placed there are a metall "feather/spring" this has losen at one time i dont know when. but this sharp metall "spring" have been pushed in when replacing cartridge and made a hole in white elektrical connections for this particular cartridge and may damage this connections, maybe this has happend with yours printer as well.!?

And know how to fix this, with no support left at HP there arent so much to do i believe i have to use cartridge with triple color or trow this one away and buy a new one. Use and trow away with blessing from HP.
