Question about HP cp1700 Color Inkjet Printer

HP CP1700 - no cyan or blue printing

I changed my cyan cartridge when the printer said the cartridge was expired. Now, I only get red ink - no cyan or blue will print. I have taken all the cartridges out and then put them back in, but still no cyan or blue prints.

Help!

    How can I tell if they need to be changed? They are not easy to get where I am, and I can't return them once I get them.

    My yellow ink was out so I replaced the cartridge and now it works only somtimes. I thought it could be a bad cartridge and Staples gave me a new one. Same problem. Printheads were all replaced 6 months ago.

Try taking a look at your printheads. Have they been installed for some time. You may need to change them. Start with the Cyan first.

    Sounds like this machine has sat for awhile. You can't look at the printheads and tell they are bad. While holding down the power button, hit your paper resume button 10x. This should generate a printer configuration page. You should be able to tell what printheads you need to replace from this page.

Hello. I have HP photosmart C5180 and I only need black colour to print some documents, I bought the original HP ink, but my printer says that I need to change expired colours too (pink, blue, cyan...) but...


Your model is a Inkjet printer working on HP TIJ 4.0 technology4. So it cannot work with one valid cartridge. You have to replace all of them to make you printer to work. This is what HP advices and highly recommends.

The Ink cartrdige can be bypassed only in Laserjet printers

I have problem with my HP business ink jet 2230. Problem is with cyan ink cartridge. I put new original cyan ink cartridge in printer, after that message is display "Attention cyan ink cartridge expired"....


hello sir, hi, the ink comes out from the ink cartridge to the ink cradle where the ink pass to the paper, this is clogged, need you to clean the ink cradle, you can use warm water to soften the dried ink.

HP all-in-one not printing cyan color


Place a soft clean tissue paper over the cartridge print head and leave for about eight minutes. You can secure it with the aid of a rubber band. It should be held firm ok. If the tissue paper is not dampened by ink then the cartridge would have gone bad or the ink dried. You also know that they have expiry date and could go bad while yet in the packaging b/c it has expired. Good luck

My hp deskjet 1280 will not print yellow


Hello, this is Harry from www.BusinessSpread.co.uk.
We had the exact same problem when printing, we used 3 different 78 colour ink cartages and they all said 100% full but did not work. We then had a look at the dates on the box and they were all expired so when buying ink from anywhere even PC world or Curry’s always look at the expiry date.
Today I went to PC world and purchased a new 78 ink which said expires July 2011 and it works perfectly fine.
Regards,

Expired HP printer cartridges


I have the identical problem with an HP Business Inkjet 1100.

Once cartridges were past date, the printer would no longer print from Windows XP. It would however work perfectly from Linux.

I did not find an ini file as mentioned in other posts, and I really did not want to open the printer as it worked fine in Linux.

The following fixed the problem:

1) Click on Start button, run
2) Type in regedit, enter
3) Navigate to HKLM/software/Hewlett-Packard/HP Printers/HPWH Toolbox/Common
4) In the right panel, right click on Ink, pick modify
5) Change 0100 to 0000
6) Save and reboot
