Hi,

I would like you to start with maintenance routine,


1. Take the paper out of the printer.

2. Turn the printer on.

3. With the printer on, hold down the form feed button (the otherbutton, there are only two: power and the form feed) and watch thestatus light.

4. When the status light has blinked three times, let go. Theprinter will make some noise and attempt to feed paper and it will keepdoing this cycle 4-5 times. When it’s done you can put paper back inand print.

If you still have the problem,then try these....


1. Make sure that the catridges you have changed is original HP CATRIDGE.
Double-check the cartridge part number.
It seems that HP is quite
picky about having the correct cartridge part number.

If you are sure that you have correct catridges , then the reason for getting blue tinge to everything you print is,

that the FUSER might be dirty or broken. This may require replacement.

you can contact this site for more support, welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html

Hope my info solves your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,
Good Luck.

Good Evening Richareelita:


Hope that you are wellJ

These are the solutions that I found for you. Personally, I think that you need to update your drivers, but wanted to offer you more than one solution.
Adjust printer settings

Click Start , click Settings, and then click Printers.
Right-click the icon (picture) of the printer.
Click Properties .
In the Properties dialog box, click the Details tab.
Look for the text Print using the following driver .
Under Print using the following driver , verify that the name of the printer is listed.
Click the Color or Color Management tab.
Click Automatic .
Click the Setup tab. If you do not see a Setup tab, click the Device Options tab. If you do not see a Device Options tab, click the Details tab, and then click the Setup button.
Locate the text Print Quality .
For Print Quality, choose Best or Presentation .

Look for the text Paper Type , Media , or Media Choice . If you do not see any of these options, click the Paper tab.
Click in the box under Paper Type , Media , or Media Choice .
In the list that pops up, choose the type of paper or film you are using.
Under Photo Paper printing , choose PhotoREt .
PhotoREt is available only if you have chosen HP brand paper under Paper Type. If you don't have a PhotoREt option, look for the text ICM . If you see ICM , click in its checkbox to add a checkmark, and click OK .
If you see a tab called Advanced , look for text Saturation , Brightness , and Color Tone .
Move the sliders next to Saturation , Brightness , and Color Tone to adjust these settings. If you cannot find these settings, click the Graphics tab and then click the Color button. Choose the options that match the type of document you are printing.
Click OK .
Close the Printers window.
Open the software application that you were using to print.
Try printing.

If this does not work, try updating your drivers or uninstalling and reinstalling your printer software.

If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

And, remember, always include the type of Operating System and the type of computer you own, when you submit your questions. It simply makes for much faster solutions.

Have a wonderful evening.

The cartrdge cradle on my HP3820 is jammed. It's been working really good up until now.


Check the following steps for fixing Hp Carriage Jam Error :

Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.

Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.

Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed papaer out.

My 3820 will not move the ink cartriges to center for changing


If you power off the printer and raise the cover you should be able to GENTLY move the print head towards the centre but if it's not moving there is probably something else wrong if it's not responding to the button push or software request.

Prints with a pink tinge


Have you tried cleaning the print heads using either regular or deep cleaning modes? You should be able to access this through the software options or on the printer itself. You might also manually clean the ink cartriges with a tissue.

HP Deskjet 3820 Won't print blue


The problem is most likely an "old" cartridge, even if it was new in the box. Printed on the box is an "install by" date which is 18 months from the manufacture date. If you do not have the box you can check the warranty date on the cartridge as shown here. The warranty date is two years from the date of manuacture, six months beyond the "install by" date.

A fresh cartridge will almost certainly solve your problem. When buying new cartridges I would look for at least six months remaining before the "install by" date.

When storing cartridges for long periods keep them in a cool place and leave them standing upright as they would be hanging on a store display shelf for maximum life.
