Re: HP Officejet 6210 printing blank pages
Hi steve well I suggest that you remove the cartridges and clean the little gold contacts on the carriage and the cartridge. If this doesn't work then install brand new original cartridges as the cartridegs that you have refilled the data ribbon may have been damaged when you refilled them..
Try the above and I hope it works for you Thanks J

This usually means there is a problem with one of your cartridges. Try changing them or even cleaning them sometimes works. If cleaning them does not work you will need a new manufacturer cartridge. Sometimes when you use refilled cartridges or ones that are knockoffs, the printer sometimes acts up. In that case you should just buy a normal cartridge and it should make the light go off. If you don't think that is the problem, check to make sure your cables are tightly connected. Shut off your printer and then restart it. Check to make sure there is nothing that is waiting to print. Although I am positive it is a cartridge problem. Try that solution. Cheers
What you have is a dried up color cartridge. You can try to use the <clean print heads> in the diagnostic tools section of you priner software. (usually, just try to print something & the window will appear) Sometimes you have to clean heads, then print test page like 2 or 3 times before it clears up. If that doesn't correct it, don't worry. Have your color cartridge filled (staples, office depot, & other stores do it cheap) - or - replace it with a new cartridge. You may have to run the clean print heads program after installing a new cartridge, but this will definitely fix your problem.
Hp in cartridge.
Left to long in hot dry environment
Incompatible 3rd party refill.
They are at bottom of cartridge and you can try to get them going with a few moist cotton swabs.
If you got 3rd party junk refill, forget it.
The head is that rectangular metal looking plate
Open up the top and look into the cartridge/paper print area. Look in the corners, Sometimes little pieces of paper can still be stuck there. Once you are convinced that the paper and cartridge path is clear then...
Pull out the paper tray. Look inside the opening. If there is paper there then pull it out.
Take all of the paper out of the paper tray.
Turn it over (paper on top is now on the bottom of the tray)
Even though your cartridges are newish it sounds like some of the nozzles are blocked. If you go through the menus on your printer and hp driver on your machine and try to find something like a nozzle check (all inkjets have them) and see if the graph prints out perfectly. If there are any gaps (particularly at the bottom) then you have blocked nozzles. These can be fixed usually by running a few printhead cleans which can usually be found in the same menu as the nozzle check.
Try to make a photocopy first from the printer itself, if it can print faster then the problem is on the computer,if not then follow the steps below:
Clean the printheads, clean the nozzles, if it still print slowly, remove the cartridges and clean the nozzles. If these steps does not resolved the problem then try changing the cartridges, maybe there's something wrong with the cartridges itself. After changing the cartridges, try to print again, and if its still the same then just post it here and ill try to find another solution for you.
