How do i check my ink levels on officejet 6210 it says to go to preferences but when I hit the button there is no tab for services to check the ink level


What OS do you have on your computer?

Do you have the full software installed, if available for your OS? See http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=421991& , select your OS and then click Next. The Ink Level indicator is part of the HP Toolbox or HP Solution Center (depending on the printer). So without the full-software, the service tab (and ink level information) sn't available.

For the OfficeJet 6210, the driver for the all-in-one is part of the Windows OS for Windows 7. So the ink level information isn't available at the computer.

The other way to get the ink level is to have the printer do a print quality self-test. Put plain white letter, A4 or legal sized paper in the paper tray. Then press Setup (on the printer). Press 2 and 5 (selecting Print Report and Self-Test Report). The ink level may not be given exactly. (Use the quality of the ink blocks to determine if the ink needs to be replaced.)

I hope this helps.

My printer is a HP Deskjet 3820. But since I couldn't find the driver for it I set it up as a 970cse (Windows troubleshooting recommended me to do this). But whenever I print the pages just come out blank....


The first thing is to download the correct driver for your printer at
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=75045&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us&submit=Go%20?»
Also, you can download the HP utility that will give you the ink status and troubleshooting tips.
Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.

What does the orange flashing light mean?


this normally is an error message saying printing did not complete. Mainly due to no paper in tray or a paper jam.
It may also mean you are low on Ink.
May need to consult your manual for any extra reasons for this. If you don't have a manual maybe you can get one from HP web site.

No PRINTOUT, only blank page/ no page received


Dear Teleios
'power button blinking without taking a paper to copy' usually means paper jam or no ink error.
First ensure you have no paper jam and you just replaced both ink cartridges.
If the printer still does not print, or does not print colors or black ink, then the ink must have dried up on printer head/nozzles.
You can try using clean nozzles option from hp printer software several times, and see if this fixes the problem. If it does not you will need to physically clean printer heads inside with solvent and cotton. To do this you need to disassemble part of the printer.
Having same work done in a service centre should cost around 50 euros.
HP DeskJet 3820 InkJet is not an expensive printer, if you cannot fix it with a clean head / nozzles from software you may also consider buying a new one for slightly more than the price of a cartridge change.

Toolbox utility


The HP Deskjet 1280 doesn't appear to have a toolbox utility at all, especially for Vista, there's even less.

How are you supposed to check the ink levels without such a utility?

Hp 3820 not printing


Ink buildup in the internal service station causes the small poorly designed pusher cogs on two drive gears to snap off and the printer is instantly converted to junk.
HP was giving new printers out for this problem till Jan 06 or so as they realized it was a poor design.
I fixed one with parts from an electronically damaged unit, but usually the blinking lights and "won't print no matter what" problem are sheared gears. Parts are not available. Some people made metal gears (the only answer) on a very short run basis in Europe several years ago because people LOVE this printer.
Once you know the problem, it's simple to keep it from happening with some maintenance, but once they shear, it's over.
There was some kind of paper-clip fix that was solving the problem even with sheared gears, but I was never able to understand exactly how it was done. Needed a pic or two.
Otherwise a great printer, huge cartridges last a long time, great quality on photos too.
I have to keep mine running to have a happy wife.

1) take a flash light and inspect the paper path just to make sure there really is nothing there.

2) print a test page from the printer by pressing the big button ( I think) one of the buttons, can't remember I work on so many models

3) take out cart. turn off then on, install cart. and do step 2
