What YYou
ou Need to Know About Print Cartridges
Your HP Color Copier 210 operates with four print cartridges: yellow,
magenta, cyan, and black. Except when printing the self-test page, all
four cartridges must be installed before you can make copies. Each time a
new print cartridge is installed, the copier automatically aligns the print
cartridges. A page is printed during cartridge alignment, so paper needs to
be loaded when the copier is turned on. Discard the page.
When printing black text only (about 5% density) on Letter/A4-sized paper,
ink lasts about 900 pages.
When printing graphics on Letter/A4-sized paper, using equivalent amounts
of each color, ink lasts approximately
✦
1850 pages per set of color cartridges at 15% density
✦
275 pages per set of color cartridges at 80% density
Remember, you must remove the protective tape from each print cartridge and
the print cartridge must be snapped fully down and forward in its stall.
HP Color Copier 210/210LX User’s Guide
2-1
Determining ink color (for users with color-vision deficiencies)
The copier uses four print cartridges. The colors, as installed from left to right,
are yellow, magenta, cyan, and black. Each cartridge has a part number that uses
a letter designation for the color of the ink. This part number is located on the
front label of the print cartridge (shown below).

Reading the ink-level indicator
To check the amount of ink in each cartridge, look at the ink-level indicator on
the front of the cartridge. As ink is dispensed from the cartridge, the green area
in the ink-level indicator (all green when full) decreases, and you will see more
black area.
The ink-level indicator is only an approximation of the amount of ink remaining in the cartridge.
Color of ink in cartridge
Ink level will look like this
when cartridge is full (all
green).
Ink level will look like this
when cartridge is low or
empty (all black).
Ink-level indicator
Ink level (green area) will
decrease as ink is dispensed.
Out-of-ink sensing
When the HP Color Copier 210 senses that a print cartridge is out of ink, it
displays a message on the front panel. The copier then completes copying
the current page and stops. To continue your copy job, replace the affected
print cartridge and press the Select/Resume button. To continue using the
same print cartridge, press Select/Resume.
2-2 Using Print Cartridges and Different Paper Types
What YYou
ou Need to Know About Paper
The HP Color Copier 210 has been designed to copy on plain paper such as
photocopier or letterhead. For maximum color brilliance, use HP Premium
Inkjet paper. HP Premium Transparency Film and Glossy Papers provide the
highest print quality for finished presentations. Refer to the ordering information at the end of this manual for paper sizes, types, and part numbers.
CAUTION Do not use paper that has been preprinted by devices (such as laser printers and
copiers) that use toner. This includes some preprinted forms and letterheads.Toner will damage
your copier.
You can copy on letter-sized, A4-sized, and legal-sized paper. Color photocopy,
bond, and letterhead paper can be used in the copier; however, you cannot
copy on envelopes, labels, cards, and custom-sized letterhead or stationery.
Be sure that all paper is free of tears, dust, wrinkles, and curled or bent edges.
Handle all paper types by the edges only. (Oil from fingerprints can prevent ink
from adhering to the page.)
Always load paper print-side down and letterhead first in the lower tray.
Copying on the correct side will make a significant difference in quality with
most paper types.
IMPORT
ANT Do not load mixed sizes of paper in the lower tray. This could cause a jam in
IMPORTANT
the copier.

Setting Copy Quality
Use the Copy Quality button to change the speed and quality of the copy. You
can choose from the following three quality settings: Best, Normal,
and Fast.
Best: Produces the highest copy quality for all paper types and eliminates
the banding effect that sometimes occurs in solid areas. Note that for most
documents, the Best setting copies more slowly than the Normal setting.
Normal: Delivers high-quality output and is the recommended setting for
most copying. Normal is the default copy-quality setting for most paper
types.
Fast: Copies faster than the Normal setting and produces draft quality. Using
Fast also cuts down on the frequency of replacing your print cartridges because
it uses less ink.
To select the copy quality you want, press the Copy Quality button. The
light next to your selection turns on.
IMPORT
ANT If you consistently use a setting on the front panel other than the default—for
IMPORTANT
example, if you use Best rather than Normal—you can establish that setting as
the default for your copier. For details, refer to the “Setting Defaults” section later in this

Reduce or Enlarge Copies
The HP Color Copier 210 contains predefined settings for reducing and
enlarging copies. Using these settings, you can enlarge standard photograph
sizes to letter/A4, or take advantage of a special feature called Auto Fit.
Auto Fit does a pre-scan of the item on the glass and automatically sizes it to
fit the current copy paper size. The pre-scan makes Auto Fit a bit slower than
the standard copy procedure, but it ensures that the edges of your original
always appear on the copy.
NOTE To copy successfully using Auto Fit, you must place all originals, including small
photographs, in the corner along the two green borders.
When enlarging, Auto Fit enlarges the item to the largest size that can fit on
the page without distorting the image.
NOTE If the list of photograph sizes (e.g., 4x6 → Ltr or 13x20cm → A4) doesn’t look
familiar, verify that the correct copy paper size has been set for your copier. Refer to
“Change Copy Paper Size” later in this chapter.

HP Color Copier 210/210LX User’s Guide 6-15
Print Cartridge Problems
IMPORT
ANT If one or more print cartridges are not printing, you could have one of the
IMPORTANT
following problems:
✦
The print cartridge(s) might have a faulty circuit connection with
the copier.
✦
The print nozzles might still be covered with tape.
✦
The print cartridge(s) might be clogged.
✦
The print cartridge(s) might be out of ink.
Faulty circuitry can sometimes cause streaks or faded colors to appear
in your print job. Try reseating each cartridge to ensure good electrical
connection between the print cartridges and copier, and then print the
self test page. (See Chapter 1, “Getting Started,” for instructions.)
Air bubbles or paper dust can occasionally clog one or more nozzles on
a print cartridge. To clear the nozzles and restore print quality, first print
the self test page.
Clearing the print-cartridge nozzles
If a print cartridge is clogged (and printing the self test page does not
clear it), try to clear it manually. (Manual clearing can often clear nozzles
more effectively than a self test.) If the print cartridge is still clogged after
completing this procedure, replace the clogged print cartridge. Follow
these steps:
1 Print a self test page. (Refer to “Getting Started,” in Chapter 1 for complete
instructions on printing the self test page.)
6-16
Troubleshooting and Maintenance
2 Four solid color bars and lines on the test page should appear as shown
below. (The intensity of the colors will vary depending on the type of paper
used.)
If any color bar has streaks, print cartridge nozzles might be clogged, and the
corresponding cartridge needs to be cleared.
Streaks appear in bars due to clogged cartridge nozzles.
Gaps also appear in lines.
If streaks appear in the same area of all four bars, faulty print cartridge
circuitry might exist in just one print cartridge. Printing a self test page with
one print cartridge at a time can isolate the bad print cartridge (which
should then be replaced).
HP Color Copier 210/210LX User’s Guide 6-17
3 Open the lid by firmly pressing the blue button on the right side of
the machine.
4 Slide the cartridge selector to the print cartridge you want to clear.
6-18
Troubleshooting and Maintenance
5 Press the plunger on the side of the cartridge carriage down gently—but
firmly—once, and then release.
6 Print the self-test page again to see if the four bars appear solid.
If streaks still appear on your printout, the print cartridge might be out
of ink. Replace the print cartridge.
If the ink level indicator still shows that ink remains inside the print
cartridge, turn off the machine and remove the print cartridge. Using a
cloth dampened with water, clean the nozzles and contact plates (metal
parts of the cartridge). Reseat the print cartridge and repeat steps 4 and 5
above. Turn on the machine and print a self-test page to check the results.
If streaks still appear, have your copier serviced. Refer to the “Getting Help”
section in this chapter.

Clearing Jammed Paper in the Copier
Paper can get jammed inside the copier when
✦
You try to copy labels.
✦
The paper is improperly aligned in the paper tray.
✦
The wrong type, size, or weight of paper is loaded.
✦
You are using the wrong paper type.
✦
You are using the wrong paper size or weight.
✦
The paper-width selector on the front of the copier is incorrectly set.
✦
Paper is wrinkled or bent.
✦
The copier has failed mechanically.
WARNING The preheater and heater guard inside the copier are hot. To prevent injury,
allow the heaters to cool before you attempt to remove paper by hand.
1 Turn off the copier and open the lid by pressing the blue button on the right
side of the copier. (Opening the lid releases the pinch rollers, making it easier to
clear a paper jam.)
2 Remove the output tray and try to pull out the jammed paper.
If paper is still jammed, reinsert the output tray (matching the notches to the
slots on the top of the paper tray) and go to the next step.
6-20
Troubleshooting and Maintenance
3 Look inside the machine. If the jammed paper can be removed without
bending any of the metal parts, then remove the paper. If you cannot
remove the paper, go to the next step.
CAUTION Do not forcefully pull the paper; you might damage the paper-loading
mechanism.
4 Open the rear panel.

WARNING The preheater and heater guard inside the copier are hot. To prevent injury,
allow the heaters to cool before you attempt to remove paper by hand.
CAUTION Use extreme care when reaching inside the back of the machine to remove
jammed paper. (Never use tools to remove jammed paper.) Be sure to take hold
of the jammed paper only; the heater guard is thin and flexible and can easily
be damaged.
6 Carefully remove the jammed paper from the back of the copier.
7 Replace the paper plug.
8 Close the rear panel.

Maintenance
Maintenance is limited to periodic cleaning. Clean inside the machine at least
once a year.
Cleaning the exterior case
Use a soft, damp, lint-free cloth to wipe dust, smudges, and stains off
the case.
Cleaning the copy glass
CAUTION Do not use abrasives, acetone, benzene, or carbon tetrachloride on the glass; these can cause
damage.
WARNING Turn off the machine and remove the power cord before cleaning. Even
though the machine is off, power is still being applied and electric shock could
occur.
1 Turn off the HP Color Copier 210 and raise the document cover.
2 Clean the glass with a soft cloth or sponge moistened with warm water and
a mild soap or detergent.
3 Rinse the soft cloth or sponge with clean water, wring out excess water, and
wipe any remaining soap or detergent from the glass.
4 Dry the glass with a chamois or cellulose sponge to prevent water spotting.
If soap or detergent does not clean the glass sufficiently, use isopropyl
alcohol as a cleaning agent.

Limited Warranty
7
Product Number: C5302A/C5305A
Duration of Limited Warranty (Hardware): 1 Year
Duration of Limited Warranty (Software): 90 Days
Duration Limited Warranty (Print Cartridges): 90 Days
Extent of Limited Warranty
1 Hewlett-Packard (HP) warrants to the end-user customer that HP products
will be free from defects in materials and workmanship, for a specified time
after the date of purchase by the customer. The duration of this limited
warranty is stated above. Certain additional conditions and limitations
of HP’s warranty are stated in this User’s Guide. Those conditions and
limitations include:
(a) For software products, the warranty applies only to the media upon
which the product is recorded; and
(b) HP does not warrant the operation of any product to be uninterrupted
or error free.
HP Color Copier 210/210LX User’s Guide 7-1
2 HP’s limited warranty covers only those defects which arise as a result of
normal use of the product, and do not apply to any:
(a) Improper or inadequate maintenance;
(b) Software or interfacing not supplied by HP;
(c) Unauthorized modification or misuse;
(d) Operation outside the product’s environmental specifications, including
duty cycle abuse or use of a mechanical switchbox without a designated
surge protector;
(e) Use of non-supported printing media; or
(f ) Improper site preparation or maintenance.
3 For HP copier/printer products, the use of a non-HP or refilled print
cartridge does not affect either the warranty to the customer or any HP
support contract with the customer; print cartridge includes both toner
cartridges and print cartridges. However, if copier/printer failure or damage
is attributable to the use of a non-HP or refilled print cartridge, HP will
charge its standard time and materials charges to service the copier/printer
for the particular failure or damage.
4 If any software media product or print cartridge product proves defective
during the applicable warranty period, and if the product is covered by HP’s
warranty, the customer shall return the product for replacement.
5 If HP receives, during the applicable warranty period, notice of a defect in
hardware product which is covered by HP’s warranty, HP shall either repair
or replace the product, at its option. Any replacement product may be either
new or like-new, provided that it has functionality at least equal to that of
the product being replaced.
6 If HP is unable to repair or replace, as applicable, a defective product which
is covered by HP’s warranty, HP shall, within a reasonable time after being
notified of the defect, refund the purchase price for the product, provided
the customer returns the product.
7 On-site warranty and return to HP warranty services are available from any
authorized HP service facility or repair depot worldwide. Specific information regarding product returns is contained in Chapter 6.
8 This Limited Warranty Statement gives the customer specific legal rights.
The customer may also have other rights which vary from state to state in
the United States, from province to province in Canada, and from country
to country elsewhere in the world.

Limitations of Warranty
1 NEITHER HP NOR ANY OF ITS THIRD PARTY SUPPLIERS MAKES
ANY OTHER WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO ITS PRODUCTS. HP AND ITS THIRD
PARTY SUPPLIERS SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
2 To the extent that this Limited Warranty Statement is inconsistent with the
law of the locality where the customer uses the HP product, this Limited
Warranty Statement shall be deemed modified to be consistent with such
local law. Under such local law, certain limitations of this Limited Warranty
Statement may not apply to the customer. For example, some states in the
United States, as well as some governments outside the United States (including provinces in Canada) may:
(a) Preclude the disclaimers and limitations in this Warranty Statement
from limiting the statutory rights of a consumer (e.g., Australia and the
United Kingdom);
(b) Otherwise restrict the ability of a manufacturer to make such disclaimers
or impose such limitations; or
(c) Grant the customer additional warranty rights, specify the duration of
implied warranties which the manufacturer cannot disclaim, or not allow
limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts.
3 To the extent allowed by local law, the remedies provided in this Warranty
Statement are the customer’s sole and exclusive remedies.
4 Installation and warranty services are available outside the country of
initial purchase only if the customer pays HP international prices (“HP
international price” is equal to any non-U.S. dollar price). If the customer
transports a product from the country of initial purchase without having
paid HP international prices, any remaining warranty covers parts and
labor only and applies only if the product is returned to the country of
initial purchase.
