Question about HP PSC 1210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Scanner/copier problems My HP PSC 1210 works only after I have just recleaned the print head for the black printer cartridge. I clean it by wiping it down with a tissue. It will work reasonably well for the next hour. The next day, it doesn't give a readable copy at all. I tried putting in a new cartridge. The behavior was the same.

It sounds like you may have a pipe or nozzle clogging up. Check my previous posts about underhead cleaning and follow the routine. This should get you on your way. It may also be worth adding a little solvent to the cleaning station before completeing a final head clean cycle throught the driver or printer panel.

When i try to print a photo i get white stripes across the photo. I bought a new ink cartridge but it didn't help.


White stripes across a print-out usually indicate clogged printer heads: look at your user manual on the cleaning procedures.
You can try cleaning BOTH the Black and Color cartridges heads by gentling cleaning and wiping the heads with clean moist tissue paper/kitchen paper. Also clean and dry the contacts (eg. copper looking printed circuit).
For bad and very dirty print heads, I also use a warm shallow dish of water and wash the head only and then dry off with clean tissue paper.
After re-inserting the cartridge, I suggest that you do a cleaning cycle and alignment and do a test print to ensure that the printing is back to normal.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

New HP 56 cartridge prints green


hello, are you sure its green, since this is a black in cart, only thing i can think of is machine not printing black , and the color ink cartridge is contaminated, this would be due to the docking area for the cartridge, on the left side of machine, there are 2 black rubber cups that the ink cartridges move over to seal. sometimes these cups have residual ink, which will contaminate the new inks. clean these black cups, and replace inks

HP printer PSC 1210 black cartridge error. The black cartridge does not work and the blinking light is always on when I plug in the cartridge.


Black cartridge error usually means that the contacts on the cartridge have blown or that they might be dirty. That's why the printer says it has a problem. Remove the cartridge, wipe the contacts with a dry cloth and put it back in. If it still gives you the same message, you will need to buy a new cartridge.

Cant print black or do black and white copies


He's not saying that the black cartridge won't print (which would warrant cleaning the heads, or messing with the cartridges) -- I have the same problem that MarkDan is having as well... no matter what you select as the output from any "Print" dialog window, the HP 21xx and 12xx series printers _always_ print in full color. You can choose Black and White, Greyscale, Color -- doesn't matter what you choose in the dialog boxes, it utterly ignores you, and will always print in color.
I have no idea why it does this, but it's eating a _ton_ of color ink for no good reason. I have searched all over the Web and on HP's site, but solution has been found.

I have a hp psc 1210 all in one,it is playing up with print outs, is it possible for me to replace the print head on this model Rick


HP printers use cartridges that ARE the print head. On occasion, the cartridge could be defective...especially if they are the remanufactured type. Try replacing your cartridge with a new HP cartridge.
