SOURCE: I have HP Photosmart 3210 All in one. I use nebs

Solution for 3200 series HP prints that no longer print black.
I have followed the directions on using "Non-Acetone" nail polish remover and it works.

I will add a few more details on working this solution. READ all these instructions before you attempt this.

1. The brand of nail polish remover that I used was "Cutex" but the bottle should say, right on the outside, "Non-Acetone" or "Acetone Free." This is what you need to clear the blocked ink receiving nozzle and or ink feeding tube.

2. The best syringe to use is a small "3 cc" type. I started with a "10 cc" but the diameter size of the syringe hit up against a square piece of the plastice molding on the printer. The smaller one does not.

3. Pull the ink cartridge out, locate the two ink receiving nozzles on the printer. They are small, less than 1/4 inch long. The bottom receiving nozzle on the black was plugged on my 3210 HP printer.
(The nozzle fits into the stem on the syringe.)

4. Pour some the "Non acetone" nail polish remover into the cap of the polish remover bottle. **** up 2 cc's of nail polish remover, hold up the syringe and remove any air until some nail polish remover comes out the end.

5. Get a flash light in one hand and illuminate the nozzle and the syringe in the other hand and insert the nozzle into the end of the syringe (no not try to have a needle or filler needle on the end of the syringe-it makes a mess).
a. Slowly apply pressure to the punger of the syringe. Very little will go in initially but when it does--slowly pull the plunger back. The solution will turn black.
b. Do this process 3-5 times until you can inject get about 1cc into the nozzle. Once this happens you can try to **** it back out. You will not get it all back but it helps break down the clog.

6. Once you can get 2cc's into the nozzle try the other nozzle to see if it is plugged as well. The nozzle that is plugged will offer a lot of resistance and you may have to push hard to get the initial amount in, BE CAREFUL not to push the clog way into the tube--repeat process 5b until it pushes a little easier.
a. The nozzle that is not plugged will offer very little resistance when pushing on the plunger.

7. Once you are at this point, run a "Clean print heads" and then "Align printer" from the printer menu. a. Push "set up" button on left side on menu panel. b. Push down arrow to item 2 on the display window "tools" and you will find "Clean print head" & "Align printer."
Run this a couple of times you should start to see some black ink printing on your paper (make sure there is ink in your cartridge)

8. Initially, the color will be gray. Next, go to your word processing program and make a document that has one inch wide lines on it. Run about 8-10 lines on a single piece of paper, adjust the ink flow to auto/600 dpi on the properties menu of "print" and print 10-15 pages of this to get rid of all the nail polish remover in your print tubes that lead to the print head. The color will start with grey and eventually turn black. You will know the nail polish remover is coming out because the paper will smell like finger nail polish remover.

Try this and it should work for you as well.

I have a hp photosmart 3210 all-in-one and i cant figure out where the paper goes

For problems like this you can always refer to the manual. If you do not have the manual it can easily be found on HP's website under their support section.

The paper loads in a small tray in the front of the machine, underneath where the printed paper exits.

It want Install...!!

Go to this website if you haven't installed the software. Download the driver and then install it, and the installation should walk you through the process. If it doesn't detect the printer, it could be a bad cable. Make sure that the cables are inserted tightly and the power is on. Hope this helps!

Paper won't load up....

Disconnect the printer from power source and computer. Remove the rear access panel and very carefully use a alcohol moistened cotton swab to clean the all the black rubber pick-up rollers. Use a gentle sideways stroke while cleaning and turn rollers to clean all sides. Allow the rollers to dry and replace the rear cover and power up. Worked wonders for me. HP has certain 3210 printers that have this problem.

Clicking Noise

Go to: and I think you'll find what you need to solve the problem. often this type of error is caused by trying to clear a paper jam by pulling it out the wrong way, one or two of the gears slip and everything gets out of sync. If you can't solve your problem with the HP troubleshooter, please ask again and I can try and talk you through the resetting process. Hope this helps:)
