If your HP B210a has a clogged printhead, this guide can be used to try and clear the clog.
'''IMPORTANT: While there are no guarantees this will fix the problem so you can use the printer again, this may work if nothing else fixes the problemwill fix most printers.

'''WARNING: This fix also depends on the printhead being recoverable, so this doeswill not work to recover a printhead with electrical problems. This fix the problemwill not work 100% of the time. This can also damage the printhead if it has predisposed damage that developed prior to cleaning. If the printheadthis fix does not survive or come cleanwork, my strong recommendation isit's generally better to replace the entire printer due to the cost ofand not the printhead and the risk the printer is actually bad.'''
== Guide Notes ==
* '''WARNING: THIS PROCEDURE MAY DAMAGE PRINTHEADS WITH PREDISPOSED DAMAGE. If the printhead has failed, it was likely caused by predisposed damage.'''
* This guide is primarily made for the HP Photosmart Plus B210a, but is universal among all printers that use the 564 ink cartridge. '''IMPORTANT: Models with non removable printheads require special attention to preserve the calibration. These models may not work again if this is lost and SETUP cartridges are expected.'''
* If I have not tested the printer you are having problems against my calibration preservation procedure, I do not guarantee that you will be able to preserve it. It generally doesn't hurt to try on models with removable printheads, but I can't guarantee it will work unless I have tested it personally.

If your printer is working as well as it used to, then the problem was simply caused by a difficult clog that needed manual intervention to fixcleaning.
However, if your printer is not working right after letting the parts dry for a little longer, then it is very likely that the printhead has other problems or was already failing and this procedure damaged it to the extentwhen it no longer workswas cleaned. If this is the case replace the entire printer.
