Title
How to clean the HP Photosmart Plus B210a Printhead
Introduction
If your HP B210a has a clogged printhead, this guide will '''potentially''' resolve the problem and get the printer working again without replacing it with materials you have at home. This guide is specifically geared towards the HP B210a and similar printers. '''With how HP 564 printers are designed you can take the steps from this model and carry it over to any HP 564 printer. It can be 4 or 5 color and it will be the same procedure, except the printhead initialization bypass in some cases. If you are trying this on a printer that does not match what was used, compare it to the guide and see if it's any different. If it isn't you are probably fine.''' Photo Black is not a major difference, so this is not an issue that will change how you remove the head. You are free to try the bypass but I have only validated it on the C309g and B210a at this point in time. I have not validated it on anything else, but it should work on most of them.
'''This method WILL NOT fix every printer with this problem. I did not intend it to, and I never will.''' Consider this a last ditch effort to avoid scrapping the printer if you can, or an alternative to the firmware tool if you would rather not make the problem worse.
If your HP B210a has a clogged printhead, this guide will '''potentially''' resolve the problem and get the printer working again. I do not gaurantee this will fix your printer, but if the printer is already doing this it's at least worth trying before you recycle the printer.
This guide is primarily made for the HP B210a first, but can also be used on similar HP 564 printers. You may have to disassemble other models further, but if you can figure out how to do it then you can probably apply the cleaning teachnique to your particular printer and printhead mounting design. It also does not matter if the printer is 4 or 5 color; the technique works on both variations of this printhead. The only thing that may not carry is the initalization bypass I use in this guide. HP has likely learned from this and has changed how the settings are stored in some models rendering this approach useless. You may need to use a different method depending on the model of printer you have.
I have validated this method on 4 models over time. The method used in this guide works on the following models:
* C6380
* C309g
* B209a
* B210a
Now, a piece of information: '''This method WILL NOT FIX EVERY PRINTER WITH THIS PROBLEM. I consider it a last resort repair to the problem rather then the first thing to try. If you are having problems and the normal means do not work, this may fix the printer. It should not be used in lieu of the official HP methods lightly.'''
Some background on this printer I used: I got this printer from the trash, because I wanted something that was going to be extreme but also has the lowest chance of being non-fixable at the same time and a trashpicked printer fit the bill.. '''How you see it in the pictures is how it started(pretty much every single nozzle was clogged and it didn't have ink tanks) and how it ended(a usable printer for free).'''
I am still not going to say this is 100% effective, but it salvaged a trashpicked printer. It's your best option when all else fails.
While I do not promise it will fix your printer, this method has the best chance of fixing the issue. The printer I used in this guide was sitting in a garage without ink for a while and the printhead was pretty bad. It ended up fixing the problem and the printer now works.
The printer used is an extreme example. Yours will likely not be this bad, but the fact it fixed a bad one should give you hope. I got it with nearly every nozzle clogged. While it isn't 100% effective, it works very well at fixing the problem.
