Question about HP PSC 1610 All-in-One Printer, Scanner, Copier

1 Answer

When I try printing from our printer it tells me to check colour ink cartridge, I take it out an re-insert it. Then the printer tells me to align the printer paper press start. I do that and then it starts to print then comes up with "Error: 0xc18e0001922:sweep _mgr_ud" Not to sure what this means. But this printer has been nothing but trouble from the beginning. I hope someone can help me with this as I am about to give up on HP printers altogether.

I had the same problem on mu HP 1200 series all in one printer; I have two of the same printers.

I couldn't believe that the ink cartridge was the problem because BOTH cartridges, black and color were fairly new and giving good copy results;

Finally after taking the printer apart, checking transformer and gears, and cleaning up the cartridge faces... STILL the same problem;
I replaced the both black AND color cartridge with a brand new one, and it worked perfectly.
So now I am stuck with 2 cartridges, half-used, that the printer will not accept.

I have a Lexmark x4690 and the printer keeps telling me I have an alignment problem. I say ok to doing the alignment but when the paper feeds through there is no ink on the page. Also, if I try to print...

The error could be due to the cartridges in the printer. Please follow steps below to identify and fix the problem:

1. Make sure the printer is on.

2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-in-One is busy.

3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier. Check the encoder strip (transparent strip behind the cartridge carrier) and make sure it is not unseated from its position.

4. Close the printer cover.

5. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power outlet to reset it.

6. When the printer turns on, check for any errors. If alignment error is displayed on the screen, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance. If no error appears, reinsert one cartridge first.

7. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.

8. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.

9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new cartridge. You can also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.



If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

How to install ink catridge

Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid that covers the print-head mechanism.
Check for any instructions on the inside of the lid.
After a few seconds, the ink-cartridges will slide to a new position.
Unlock the cartridge from its socket, either by moving the lever,
or by pushing-down on the cartridge, and gently lift it out.

Insert the new cartridge. Lock it into the socket.
Run a "print-head" alignment cycle, for optimal colour-printing.

Dell V305w Printer Alignment problem. Remove tape from cartridges or check troubleshooting. Press > to continue. Ink cartridges reset, tape removed, trays aligned. HELP!

In my case this happened with black cartridge out of ink, colour cartridge low; replaced black: had permanent alignment problem, though test print looked OK; wouldn't print black. Replaced colour cartridge, then it all worked OK, straightaway!

Not good colour consistency over an A4 page

I suggest you find a way to align the cartridge. If it contains alignment utility it should give you a better printout. Also check if you have enough ink on your cartridge. Uneven colour usually is due to lack of ink in the cartridge.

The black ink doesn't print. We have brother cartridges in our printer DCP 385C, and until recently it always told us when ink was running out. now it doesn't print the black ink at all and it doesn't tell...

Make sure the protective tape covering the new cartridge has been COMPLETELY removed then reinsert. Your printer should tell you that a new cartridge is inserted and ask to print a test page, align etc. Otherwise your cartridge may have a faulty chip which simply wont read.
In which case you need to return it and get a replacement.

Printer will not align

Print cartridge

When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.

Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.

1. Open the top cover of the printer.

2. Remove the print cartridges.

3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth.
Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.

5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.

6. Close the top cover.

7. Try printing again.

If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .

Put in new ink and it is telling me out of ink and will not let me print anythings.. How do you reset ink

Simple oly when you know how ;-)

I think you have a slight blockage, to solve:- (dont know which printer or PCyou have so ill do my best)

Click on Start
All programms
Pick your printer from the list
Open the software
You will have 2,3 or 4 options depending on your printer spec.

You need to 1st remove the cartridge
Print 1 page with no INK a message will pop up saying con not print need ink for example.
You then NEED to calibrate your cartridge, you need to find:-
1 Align Cartridge/Nozzle - Unblocks, and Sets up. (Syncronize)
2 Calibrate Black - unblock black
2 Calibrate Colour - unblock colours
3 Print test Page - See how it looks
5 Align again - Unblocks everything giving good ink flow and gets the print right close to 100%
6 print test page!

It shoud now work ;-)

Good Luck xxx
