Question about HP OfficeJet 6210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

3 Answers

Printer stuck on error message "Remove and check cartridge."

I have replaced both color and b/w cartridges--twice--and still this message is displayed along with a flashing orange lighted exclamation mark. I have also tried restarting both printer and computer, together and separately. I am wondering if I pushed the new cartridge in too hard when I initially was replacing the old one. But that is the only thing left I can think could have caused this problem, unless it is a problem with the printer itself that will require taking it to a shop for repairs. It has been a good device for the several months we have owned it. Please advise Bo Butler

I understood your issue. This problem occurs when suppourted catridges are not used and even if you use refilled catridges. Even try to perform usb refresh and power cycle.

Remove and check what? With the machine off see if you can slide the printhead left to right freely. Make sure nothing is interfering with it. Also check and make sure there is not a paper jam any where.

you can check the ink level from following steps Method one: Check the ink levels from the idle screen on the color graphics display Look for four icons at the bottom of the color graphics display. The icons represent the ink level remaining in each of the four color ink cartridges: black, yellow, light cyan (blue), and light magenta (pink). A larger and more accurate view of the ink levels can be displayed from the Setup menu. If an ink cartridge containing non-HP ink is being used, a question mark displays instead of the ink drop in the icon for that cartridge. The HP All-in-One cannot detect the amount of ink remaining in ink cartridges that contain non-HP ink. Figure 1: Non-HP ink iconc00841629.jpg NOTE: HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. Printer service or repairs required as a result of printer failure or damage attributable to the use of non-HP ink will not be covered under warranty. If a hollow ink drop icon displays, the ink cartridge represented by that color icon has very little ink remaining and will need to be changed soon. You might be able to continue printing for a short period of time with ink remaining in the print head assembly. Replace the ink cartridge when the Replace Soon warning message displays on the color graphics display. Figure 2: Low ink level iconc00841630.jpg When the Empty Ink message appears on the color graphics display, the indicated ink cartridge is out of ink. Replace the indicated ink cartridge. Method two: Check ink levels from the Windows computer The estimated amount of ink remaining in the ink cartridges can be checked from the computer. See the on-screen HP Director Help for information on checking the ink levels from the Printer
  1. Open the printer Toolbox. To do so, do one of the following:
    • Open HP Solution Center, click the Settings menu, then point to Print Settings , then click Printer Toolbox .
    • Right-click the HP Digital Imaging Monitor in the tray, then point to your printer model name, and click Display Printer Toolbox .
    The Toolbox opens.
  2. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab. The estimated ink level gauges display.
Method three: Check ink levels from the Setup menu
  1. Press Setup on the printer control panel.
  2. Scroll down and select Display Ink Gauge . The Ink Gauge status from the Tools menu will only display on the color graphics display.

If the ink level is low and the cartridge is new please contact the dealer from whom you got the cartridge and if it shows that the ink level is good enough please comment so that i can give you another step to perform

Message says problem with tri color cartridge


I don't think the date on the cartridge is the problem. It might be the electronic on your color cartridge. If there is an orange light flashing and the printer won't pull the paper to print, in 99%, the problem is one of the cartridges. Try removing the color cartridge and gently wipe out the electronic with a dry cloth. Put it back in and try to print. If that doesn't help, try removing the color cartridge and print (I am not sure if that will work, because all in one printers usually need both cartridges in order to print, but you can try that too). You can also try scanning something and see what the message on the printers display tells you. If there is an E an the color button is blinking, I think you should replace your color cartridge.

ORANGE LIGHT IS BLINKING AND PRINTER WILL NOT PRINT


The Amber light is designated as the "Ink Error" light. With regards to a Hewlett Packard printer, the Amber light is indicating that one of the Ink Cartridges (Tri-Color/Black) is empty, defective, unrecognizable, or just simply needs to be changed. The procedure is; lift up the front cover, look at the Black Ink Cartridge, and examine the Ink Level Window on the Cartridge, located at the center of the Cartridge. If the square window appears to be a solid Green then that means the cartridge is completely full. If it is Half Green/Half Black then it is indicating that the cartridge is half way full, and if the square window is completely Black, then the cartridge is completely empty. Also, remove and examine the Tri-Color Cartridge. If the Tri-Color Cartridge feels very light or if the Tri Colors on the bottom of the Cartridge appear to be discolored i.e. All Magenta, All Cyan, or All Yellow, then the Cartridge should immediately be changed. After replacing the Black or Tri-Color Cartridge, your printers Green Power Light will flash and allow you to continue your print job
You can also try:
Clean the cartridge and carriage contacts with a cotton swab moistened with water. If you have refilled the cartridges don't assume that they will still work. If cleaning doesn't help you may have a failed cartridge even if it is not refilled.
If you are getting a grinding noise, clean the carriage rod with alcohol and lubricate it with a few drops of Tri-Flow, available in 2 oz. squeeze bottles at cycle shops.
