HP 2210 xi - Continually getting align cartridge message and when I print one, it doesn't print the entire thing. I've tried changing cartridges, doesn't work. Actually when I put in a black cartridge it doesn't print at all. I've tried setup, cleaning ink 'nozzels', etc. Now it prints in double and the colors are washed out. Any other solutions or is my printer dead?

My guess is that the color cartridge is either defective or not inserted correctly. I have a 6110 and know that inserting a print cartridge is a little tricky. If it isn't completely inserted and the top latch fastened correctly, the cartridge either won't work or produce errors.
Try reseating the color cartridge so it's inserted in exactly the same way as the black cartridge and run a print job again.
