Hp psc 2170 printer has a "remove and check cartridge" warning blinking. I've removed and re-inserted printer cartridges twice now. Unplugged it. And restarted and it still does it. My manual doesn't have a "trouble shooting" section. What's up with that?

Here's what I found when this happend on my two 7410's. Take a look at where the ink cartridge slides into it's holder. Shine a flashlight on the circuit board at the rear. You will no doubt find it has a puncture in it that breaks the little tracer wires on the board. The culpret is the tension spring arm. It likely has come off it's base support and when that happens, and you install a new cartridge, the cartridge will push the tip of the tension wire g right into the circuit board. After you fix the circuit board, apply some silicone glue to the spring base mount to hold it in place.

HP Deskjet 1180c and1220c Professional Series Printer and HP Deskjet 9300 and 1280 Printer - Troubleshooting a Blinking Print Cartridge Light Introduction The Print Cartridge light continues to blink with both cartridges properly installed and the Access Cover (also known as the top cover or lid) closed. Instructions The blinking Print Cartridge light may be caused by a faulty cartridge, the plastic case of the printer being dislodged or slightly out of position (which prevents the Access Cover from seating properly), the Access Cover sensor (also known as the top cover sensor or lid sensor), or by the actuator on the Access Cover. Follow the steps below to resolve the issue.

  1. With the printer turned on, open the Access Cover. The carriage will move out of the capping station and stop at one of the cartridge status icons located inside the printer under the Access Cover. The yellow arrow on top of the carriage will point to one of the cartridge status icons to indicate a good, empty, or faulty cartridge. See Figure 1 below.
    1. If the carriage stops in the cartridge’s OK position, indicated by the happy face in Figure 1, continue with Step 2.
    2. If a problem is indicated with one of the cartridges, remove the cartridge and verify that the cartridge part number is correct. The black cartridge part number is 51645A and the color cartridge part number is C6578A or C6578D.
    3. If the cartridge part number is correct, clean the electrical contacts on the cartridge with a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not touch or wipe the nozzle plate.
    4. If a faulty cartridge is still indicated after verifying the cartridge part number and cleaning the contacts on the cartridge, replace the cartridge.
    5. After replacing the cartridge, turn off and then turn on the printer to clear the cartridge error from the printer's memory. If the cartridge error cannot be cleared, the printer will require repair. If the carriage stops in the cartridge’s OK position, indicated by the happy-face in Figure 1, continue with Step 2. NOTE: The printer checks the status of both print cartridges before printing. Both the black and color cartridge must be functional and installed in the printer in order to print.
    Figure 1: Cartridge status icons c00001225.jpg Icon/Drawing Problem identified by the symbol Solution c00001226.jpg The color cartridge is missing, improperly installed, defective, or the wrong print cartridge is installed. 1. If there is no color cartridge in the cartridge cradle, insert a color cartridge.

    2. If there is a color cartridge in the cradle, remove the color cartridge and firmly reinsert it.

    3. Check to make sure the color cartridge is appropriate for the printer.

    4. If the problem persists, replace the color cartridge. c00001227.jpg The black cartridge is missing, improperly installed, the wrong print cartridge, or is defective. 1. If there is no black cartridge in the cartridge cradle, insert a black cartridge.

    2. If there is a black cartridge in the cradle, remove the black cartridge and firmly reinsert it.

    3. Check to make sure the black cartridge is appropriate for the printer.

    4. If the problem persists, replace the black cartridge. c00001228.jpg The color print cartridge is running low on ink. Replace the color print cartridge with a new color print cartridge. c00001229.jpg The black print cartridge is running low on ink. Replace the black print cartridge with a new black print cartridge. c00001230.jpg None. The print cartridges are working correctly. None. The print cartridges are working correctly.
  2. Close the Access Cover and wait for the printer to initialize. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, remove the Access Cover by following the steps below:
    1. Open the Access Cover and hold it open.
    2. Dislodge the Access Cover from the hinges with a sharp blow to the hinge area of the Access Cover and then remove the Access Cover.
  3. Install the Access Cover by following the steps below:
    1. Align the hinges on the Access Cover with the hinge pins on the printer.
    2. Push down firmly on the Access Cover until the hinges snap into position.
  4. Close the top cover and wait for the printer to initialize. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, the printer case may be dislodged or slightly out of position. To restore the printer case to the proper position, squeeze the printer by applying pressure to the front and back pressure points shown in Figure 2. Figure 2: Pressure points c00006497.jpg Firmly squeeze the pressure points on the printer case as shown in Figure 3. If the Print Cartridge light continues to blink, continue with step 5. Figure 3: Squeezing the pressure points c00006498.jpg
  5. If the Print Cartridge light is still blinking, push down firmly on the center of the Access Cover (the extra pressure may engage the sensor). If the Print Cartridge light quits blinking, remove the pressure from the Access Cover to see if the Print Cartridge light starts blinking again. Re-apply the pressure to the center of the Access Cover to see if the Print Cartridge light stops blinking again.
    1. If the Print Cartridge light quits blinking with pressure applied, the Access Cover is faulty and should be replaced.
    2. If the Print Cartridge light continues to blink even with pressure applied, the Access Cover sensor may be faulty and the printer will require repair.

HP Laserjet 1020 will not respond - warning light is on (not blinking) and the ready light is off.


Hello, remove the cartridge and check inside the printer, on the left side of the sponge roller about 1 inch/2.5 cm down, there is a lever that engages a flag at the back of the printer ( the sensor in case tells the printer that the cartridge is in the printer) check that lever and make sure it moves freely. If there is a pice of paper behind that lever, when you insert the cartridge the lever will not go all the way.

A message "Remove and Check


If a remove and check cartridge error occurs, the contacts may need to be blown of dust or dirt in order for the new cartridges installed.

Also, when installing new cartridges, make sure that they are genuine hp cartridges, and the tape is removed from the nozzles.

If the above doesn't solve the problem, then repair may be necessary, either in warranty or out of warranty. You'll have to determine if it is cost effective for out of warranty service.

My printer hp psc 1350 keep on blinking check print catridge even after change new catridge both colour and black..how to settle?


Tried removing the cartridges again, then turn off you printer for 2 mins.

clean the print nozzles of the cartridges, turn the printer on
insert the cartridges again, then check if the problem persist.

You can also try to put the original cartridges that came with the printer
to isolate the problem, if it's really the ink cartridges.

My black cartridge was empty so I bought a new one. When I inserted the cartridge...the screen read "Remove and Check Cartridges." The "Copy", "Scan", and "Photo Card" tabs keep blinking as well....


hawleydn,
I know this might sound crazy, but your brand new cartridge is junk. Take it back and get a new one. I've done this several times with my HP PSC 2210. the all-in-ones are sometimes finicky with the cartridges. Also, be careful when you insert it into the slot. There is a small wire clip thing on the right side that is easily broken if you try to force it in.

If this helps, give me a vote :o)

Dial says to remove cartridges and check. Have replaced cartridge


After cleaning cartridges and replacing refilled black ink, I removed blck ink and replaced with HP 58 photo ink. this aborted the "check cartridges freeze". I still cannot align cartridges after removing #58 and replacing with new HP 57. the operation starts but will not complete.

Any suggestions on how to align cartridges?

Replacing the print cartridgesgtabtop.gif
  1. Turn on the HP PSC and lower the print-carriage access door.
    The print carriage will move into the access area. Figure 1: Opening the print-carriage access door
    c00034850.jpg
  2. After the carriage stops moving, push down on the top of the print cartridge to release it, and then pull it toward you out of the slot.
      NOTE: The black cartridge is on the right side of the print carriage.
    Figure 2: Removing the print cartridge
    c00034851.jpg
      NOTE: It is normal to see ink buildup in the print cartridge slots.

  3. Remove the new print cartridge from the packaging and gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.
      CAUTION: Do not touch the copper contacts or ink nozzles. Install the cartridge immediately upon removing the tape to prevent ink from drying in the nozzles.
    Figure 3: Removing the plastic tape
    c00034852.jpg
  4. Push the new print cartridge into the appropriate slot at a slight angle, until it clicks into place.
      CAUTION: Do not attempt to push the cartridge straight into the slot. It must slide in at a slight angle.
    Figure 4: Inserting the print cartridge
    c00034853.jpg
  5. Close the print-carriage access door.


Using a photo print cartridgegtabtop.gif To use the photo print cartridge, remove the black print cartridge and insert the photo print cartridge in its place.
The photo print cartridge can be purchased separately and will optimize the quality of printed photos.
With the tri-color print cartridge and photo print cartridge installed, you have a six-ink system, which provides enhanced quality photos. For printing regular text documents, use the black print cartridge.
Use a print cartridge protector to keep either print cartridge secure when it is not being used. Figure 5: Storing the print cartridge
c00034854.jpg 1 - Inserting the print cartridge
2 - Removing the print cartridge

Aligning the print cartridgesgtabtop.gif After installing or replacing a print cartridge, the HP PSC will automatically print a cartridge alignment page.
  1. Place the alignment page face down on the left front corner of the glass with the top of the page facing the left side.
  2. Press Scan .
    The HP PSC will align the print cartridges. During the alignment the button LED will blink until the alignment is complete.
