in a HP-PSC-1210, replaced empty HP56 black-inkjet cartridge.
Afterward, printer gave error message AND unable to "dismount" the cartridge.
Finally discovered that an HP57 color-inkjet cartridge had accidentally been mounted/installed. A handyman relative was able to dismount the (wrong) cartridge.

Cradle did not actually jam, though printer would not print.

Will not copy

This means one of the cartridges is defective, they cant align if they cant print. What i did to fix this problem is insert 2 working cartridges and get it to align properly, even if they are low on ink, then lift the cover and the cartridges will move to the center. When this happens pull the power cable out, then insert the full non functioning cartridge. Plug the power cable back in. I tried this with a color cartridge, the color cartridge was non functioning but i was able to print in black. Basically you align the cartridges and then swap them so the printer thinks they are still aligned. The color still doesnt work and it is probably a defective color cartridge.

My printer keeps saying print cartridge cradle is stuck clear jam then press ok, but there is no paper jam

Because it's NOT a paper jam, but a cartridge cradle jam, I suppose it's an ink jet printer??? if so, check for debrie arround the cradle shaft that could prevent the printing cradle to move from left to wright... you could also lubricate the shaft by rubbing a little bit of grease on it with the tip of your finger (verry thin layer), as ink sometimes gets on it and tends to become sticky with time...

How do I align the cartridge after I replace it. The fax printed out a sheet and the lines are not straight. I went to tools...to align cartridge and then I am not sure how to adjust the lines

Hi,

Follow below steps to complete alignment.

  • With the Cartridge compartment cover open, insert the print cartridge into the print cartridge cradle with the contacts facing into the unit. When the cartridge is seated in the print cartridge cradle, push the top of the cartridge towards the back of the unit until the print cartridge clicks into place.
  • Close the cartridge compartment cover and control panel.
  • Press the Start/Enter button.
  • On the keypad, press 1 if the replacement print cartridge is new or 2 if the replacement print cartridge is old
NOTE: When you put in a new cartridge, you must choose 1: New .When you put in a used cartridge, choose 2: Used . This helps you to check the correct amount of ink you have left.
  • An alignment page will print and 06 [01-11] will show on the display
  • Look at the alignment page and select the number under the straightest line, and then press that number on the keypad and then press Start/Enter .

Error C000!! what can i do it wont print,

Hi,
  • Make sure the tank holding all the ink cartriges is properly aligned and can move side-to-side.
  • If it is crooked or can't move, check below it for a paper jam -- when the jam is that bad, the C000 appears to override the normal Paper Jam warning.
  • Make sure none of the ink cartridges has run completely out -- I tend to use them until they're bone dry, and got the C000 error....inserting a new cartridge cleared it right up.

Printer cradle jam

I have a hp photosmart 5500 that had the same symptoms. I am no expert, but the first thing I did was unplug the power and UBS cord. while the cradle door is open, you can see that there are three mechanisms that push up to the cartridges from the bottom. On my printer, those were mis-aligned. I was able to remove each of the 56, 57 & 58 cartridges with some effort without breaking any of the hardware (but it was difficult. Somehow, I was able to push the set of mechanisms back down into their lowest position, put the cartridges back into place, and then plugged both cords back in. This seemed to do the trick. Be careful to have a bottle of nail polish remover handy to clean up all the ink that you will get on your fingers or screwdrivers that you will use to push the mechanism back into place. Have it ready beforehand!!!

HP Designjet 1050 / 1055 CM green tint Problem: -------- HP Designjet 1055 CM Postscript: Black and gray-levels printed with green tint Description ----------- My HP Designjet 1055CM PS prints gray levels and black color with green tint. Somehow, the printer does not mix C-M-Y to get the proper color tones. Just to check if using the pure black ink tank as a reference, I tried to force the printer to use it by sending the following simple Postscript test-file to the printer. -------------------------------------------------------------- %!PS-Adobe-3.0 EPSF-3.0 > setpagedevice %%BoundingBox: 0 0 1500 200 newpath 100 70 moveto 0 100 rlineto 100 0 rlineto 0 -100 rlineto -100 0 rlineto closepath gsave /DeviceCMYK setcolorspace 0 0 0 1 setcmykcolor fill stroke showpage --------------------------------------------------------------- It should draw a 100% black rectangle. The test.ps was sent to the printer with the command 'lpr -l test.ps ' The -l should force the cups printing system to send test.ps in raw format i.e. without any preprocessing by the printing system. The processing should be done completely within the PostScript RIP of the printer. However, the print has the exact same green tint as if I print through any application. How can the printer be forced to use the black cartridge? Any idea how to get rid of the green tint? My Mac is running macOS Monterey 12.6 Apart from the green tint issue, the printer is working fine. Any help is greatly appreciated! Best regards!
