Photosmart 6510 printing on thick paper

I am trying to print the map of 240gsm on my Photosmart 6510, which so far has worked flawlessly.

Just rolls do not seem to be able to take it, but HP confirmed that this printer must be able to take in 280gsm card. The printer doesn't seem to be something print, then tells me I have a blockage, and the card must be withdrawn to the rear of the printer with a few black spots stained on the edge of it.

I don't really want to pay their support costs HP (I'm outside the warranty period) to solve what should work just fine and is not due to the error on my part.  If anyone has experienced this kind of problem before, and if so, what was the solution?

Hi people,

The following table lists the input and output tray capacity for plain paper, envelopes, cards, and photo paper for both the 5510 Photosmart HP 6510 e-all-in-one printer in the series.

  • Photosmart 6510: photosmart 6510 prints blank pages

    Printer was working fine.  Had to change the cartridge. First of all, I didn't have black and now I don't have much color either.  The printer says I had no real HP though now it shows that I do. I never bought my cartridges anywhere but the staples.  Printing October 2012 have changed many cartridges before you buy.  Followed everything I could find.  Still not printing.

    This model has a permanent print head, this video shows you how to access the print head, so you can manually clean the printer and soak the printhead, it's my own personal recommendation, not one of HPs, is to use the solution proposed in the following videos.  I suggest only doing this if the printer is out of warranty.

    Once you get to the clock at 3:20 minutes, you can stop this video.

  • Photosmart 6510 print with only black print cartridge?

    Hi, can printing Photosmart 6510 in black & white (not gray, but b & w only) when the black ink cartridge is not empty, but all the other cartridges are? If the color cartridges are not already installed, it will always show b & w?


    The 6510 PS will not work if the color cartridges are empty but the black ink.

    However, I think that it would be possible to print using only black ink but to do ink in the cartridges of colour as well because in case of maintenance color cartridges to do little ink in the print head maintenance routines.  When the head is friendly if there was no colour ink this part of the print head could heat upward too or overheat.

    Anyway, back to print in black only.  You mention that you do not want t p rint in black and white so you know where to look in the driver to get to this option. Then in Word, Excel or any program, go to the print function.  Click on properties. Click Advanced. You should see where you have levels of gray.  If you clock in the option box should reveal the other options will be "Black Only". Select this option.

    As I said you should be able to print using only black, but you will need the color cartridges ink.

    Hope this helps.

  • Photosmart 6510 "Printer Error" and all lights flash

    I have a 1.5 years, Photosmart 6510 B211a who works well. Now, all lights are flashing and or my USB connected PC (Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit), or my iPad or iPhone (OS 7) connected wireless will be printed.

    When the printer is turned on it goes as usual, wireless and power light stay on and displays correctly (Apps, Snapfish, Photo, copy, Scan), I can print from all devices.


    1. in ~ 5 minutes, no noise, all LEDs (displays the screen "Please turn printer then turn it on again."

    2 "(Printer Error is lit above screen, lights beside screen and power and wireless) starts to blink in unison"

    printer does not print

    3, every 10 seconds, a very low "short moan" noise, like something is trying to move inside the printer

    4. when power is cycled it will again be print normally for about 5 minutes and then stop again with flashing lights.

    Have you tried the following.

    1. hard reset (more than once - fired power and USB)

    2. uninstalled and reinstalled software and drivers

    For any help or suggestion will be appreciated.

    Possible solution

    I had the same problem when I moved the printer to a new PC. To end, I decided to change the USB port to which the printer is connected to. well, it worked! Printer now work correctly for wired operation and wireless.

    Not sure if I got a bad USB port or that the cable was not seated properly, or if the USB port had no authority to provide the connection to the printer.

    Hope this helps someont with this problem.

  • Photosmart 6510: Printer not found the new router


    The Photosmart 6510 says that it is connected to the network of law with a beep sound intense, works with a usb cable and print a test without error page. BUT nothing comes out when I try to print something with wifi. It remains in the queue. Print and scan doctor finds nothing. WiFi worked before changing internet provider and so the router (I guess that's the name of the area which gives access to the internet). Tried to turn all market again and reinstall of the printer.

    The supplier offered to modify the number of IP printer, that has not helped. Using Windows 7.

    Any ideas?

    Thought I had answered this, but it is not displayed on the site.

    Now printing without cable USB between the router and the printer. I think it's helped the router to communicate the correct number of IP to the printer.

    Anyway, problem solved. Thanks for your efforts!

  • HP Photosmart B8550 printer Out Of Paper error message

    I have a HP Photosmart B8550 who insists on the fact that I'm paper little matter how much is in the main tray.  Whenever I try to print from my computer or just running test page, I get the error message "Out of Paper".   This problem occurred about two weeks after the expiration of the warranty of the printer.

    The last thing that he print with success was a sign of sale on fluorescent stock heavy.  I tried cleaning the rollers as others suggested online and found a few red residue, probably from the sign.  It does not have the printer works however.

    Someone else suggested to remove the upper plate and forcing a piece of paper through by hand to get it going again.  If I push a sheet of paper upward to meet the internal reels view and print a single page but it does not take any other paper on its own.  It just goes back to what the message OF PAPER.

    How is the document that is supposed to be pulled up to the rolls? Now that the top plate has been removed, I see an arm with two black rolls down on paper when PRINTING is affected, but they do not seem to turn. They just sit there for a few seconds and then back up just before ON PAPER will start to blink.

    Any suggestion or destroyed independent feeding mechanism? Is there maybe a sensor that is clogged?  If Yes, where is it located and how can it be cleaned?

    There is a document to find errors on paper on Photosmart 8000 series printers located here.

    If these steps do not fix the problem, then a hardware problem has developed in the feeding mechanism and your best option will be to replace the printer. Have you thought about contacting HP Support on the upgrade program?

  • How can I create custom with the Photosmart 6510 printers paper sizes

    I want to use paper sizes personalized with Word or Photoshop.

    I have a Photosmart 6510 printer all-in-one.

    While I can find the custom size tab layout in Word and can set this size, I don't seem to be able give the new size a name or save it.

    Is it possible with this printer, or is there a workaround to avoid the message 'paper mismatch '.

    Thanks for the ay help I can get.

    I'm sorry not to come back earlier.  I stumbled across a work around for this problem.  Use a different print driver for the printer.  I'll link the instructions below.  Again, sorry I don't come back with the workaround as soon as possible.

    I can send you the steps to perform resets itself, however, I don't think it will do everything for the same problem.

  • My photosmart printer 6510 prints only black

    My photosmart 6510 prints only black & white with my mac test i is printed 4 color bars

    Looks like the wrong driver is installed. Try to remove and time the printer and check which driver is used.

    Go to system, then print and fax Preferences (print and scan over 10.7), then highlight the printer and go to sign less down to remove it. After that, click on the plus sign to readd it. When you highlight in the list of so that the background box should tell the 6510 print using, if it says something else bad driver is used.

    If this is the case, you have a few options. Try to run an update of the apple software, it can find a printing hp update software, install that, if she does and try to add the printer again. If it still fails to solve, the next option would be to reset the printing system

    To reset printing system go to this window print and fax again and the white box where the printers are listed on the left hold down the CTRL key and click. This should give you an option to reset the printing system. This will remove all of THE printers that you have added, so if you have others you should readd them. After that itll request your password, put it in to confirm, once thebox restart the mac, and add the printer again.
