the 610 have a problem with black cartridges so I suggest you try another black cartridge.I know you probably have a new one in but this type of cartridge seems to be failing more offten than not I had the same problem today on a 610 and have had the same problem with the last 10 610 that I have had in for repair so give it a go

Before we head too far into this, I think it would be your responsibility to set down exactly what the computer is saying, rather than leave us looking at "something about" comments.

At first blush it appears you are having communications problems with your printer. To troubleshoot this I suggest you first replace your printer cable with a known good IEEE 1284-compliant cable and see if the problems vanish.

The program "hpfsched.exe" is probably missing from the c:\windows directory.

The "win.ini" file attempts to load this program in the line that begins with "run =".

You can either:

1)  Unistall the HP printer driver and reinstall it again.
2) Remove "hpfsched" from the "run =" line in the "win.ini" file.  SUGGESTION: Make a copy of win.ini before making any changes to it.  That way you can go back to the original if you need to.

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.
