Did you make sure to remove the cello tape from top, bottom or both to allow 1) air to enter from the top, or 2) ink to exit from the bottom?
If its a laser cartridge you have to pull out the protective strip.
Good luck

How to restore your inkjet printer so it prints just like new!


Inkjet printers all operate the same basic way. There are differences but the basics are the same for any inkjet devices. Eventually a buildup occurs enough that your printer doesn't print. Cleaning cycles use more and since inkjet ink is worth about $8000 a gallon, this is a expensive way to clean something.

So what can we do to clean this just a bit cheaper? We need to find a suitable solvent that will dissolve these deposits without harming the print head. And the one that works great and is dirt cheap is good old household white vinegar. Next we want to get some lint free (preferred but not critical) paper towels. And a clean clear table top to work. You may want to put down some newspaper. This isn't that messy to do but it can get the odd bit of dissolved ink on things.

Now we take the printer and remove the paper and the ink cartridges and set aside. The print head is a small stamp sized thing on the bottom of the cartridge holder. Take about 1/3 of a sheet of paper towel and wet it with vinegar. Next you want to get the wetted towel under the print head. It should fit as this is where the paper goes you print. The towel is a thicker but it is soft. move the print head back and forth over the towel. When the towel is covered with ink, change it and repeat. Keep repeating this until the towel comes clean. It will only take a few minutes. When the towel is clean then you are done. Replace the ink cartridges and paper and you are ready to print.

Refilled my hp officejet 6500 but the printer shows empty cartrages, should I do something with the chip?


What Chip?
The ink volume usually is controlled by the software that comes with the printer....You may want to re-install the software that came with the computer first.

The solution center shows a question mark on both ink cartrages, and says no comutaion with the printer.


Take the cartridges off and check the connections. Make sure that there is no dust or debris on the contacts. Also take some Alcohol on a swab and clean both areas with it. I would recommend a clean swab for each contact so you do not cross contaminate the leads. When you put the cartridges back in make sure that they seat all the way. I know that there are some cases where the cartrages look like they are seated properly but not.

I cannot locate HP Solution Center on my computer in order to ask a question about why my ink jet is not lasting very long.


Hi Carolyn,

The HP Solution Center is a program on your computer that provides a single place where you can control your printer and also receive help on common problems. As part of your HP printer's installation, the Solution Center should have an icon on your desktop which looks like a blue ball with "HP" in white letters inside.

If you do not have one, then you can create one. Using Windows Explorer (Windows Key > E), find the following file on your computer.

C:\Program Files\HP\Digital Imaging\bin\hpqdirec.exe"

Then right-click on it and select "Send To: Desktop". You should now have an icon on your desktop for the HP Solution Center.

For why your ink is not lasting very long, this could be many things. But one way you can reduce your ink consumption is by making sure that your are printing in DRAFT mode and BLACK&WHITE for your normal every day printing. You should only use COLOR and NORMAL/BEST selections when printing photos or professional documents.

In addition to these printer settings, please realize that the ink cartridges that were shipped with your printer usually have a low volume of ink so that you have to purchase new ones. When buying new ones, try to find cartridges that advertise "large capacity" because they have more ink and are a better value.

Good luck with your problem. If you found my solution helpful, I would appreciate the feedback.

Is there a cable physically connecting the printer to the computer? If so, do you see the printer in Printers and Faxes?
