Question about HP Photosmart 2610 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My HP 2610 is a little over a year old. It just started giving the message "Remove and check color cartridge". I have cleaned the contacts with alcohol and a Q-tip. I have tried one new 97 and one new 95 cartridge and one half ful 95 cartridge that was working fine in another printer. The message is persistent and the printer will not work.
Try this. worked for me. when installing the cartridge, put one finger under the cartridge and hold upward pressure as you closed the green plastic cover. problem is the pins on the cartridge and the pins on the printer are not aligning properly by relying on the spring to do it. this will help to align the pins and should make it work.

Finally I happend to take both cartridges out and cleaned them both (black and color)
NOW it has succeded to print 3 times stright ahed. It seems that it was the rather dirty black cartridge that actually was the problem, but the printer said it was the color cartridge..?? Something wrong in the error message system in the printer?

I, too, am getting the cartirudge error (mine is for the black side) and I am unable to proceed past that message. I do see the broken tab which aligns the metal spring inside the plastic cartridge holder, so the spring is hanging. I suspect that this is the problem (I think I may have done that when I attempted to put the color cartidge in the wrong side in error?). Anyway, does anyone know where I can find a repair manual for the HP 2610 and where I can get the part to fix this?

Did you clean deep inside where the cartrigge sits with a proper cleaning solution made for pc's and q- tip. A clog can take more than one clean sometimes. Also, the error message could be a drver error issue, from amny causes including spyware. Try running antispyware if attatched to pc and not standalone unit. Also try uninstalling and reinstalling it.

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.
