Hi Farhana

You need to clean the Nozzles of the cartridge before inserting the cartridge in the printer. You can take a tissue paper and wet it a little and keep the cartridge nozzles side on the tissue and let it absorb little ink from the cartridge and later take a white sheet and try to press the paper against the nozzles to see if you get the correct colors out of the cartridge. e.i. CMY Cartridge No. 22 will have an arrangement of C on left and Magenta in Centre and Yellow on right side. If it does not work then you need to suck the ink from the nozzles with a little help of your mouth with a cloth covered on the nozzles.

Hp officejet 4315 is stuck in mfg mode. what can I do to fix this


Regarding your query, it sounds like the HP Officejet 4315 printer is locked into the advanced service test mode (i.e. one of your ink cartridges is causing the issue). Remove both ink cartridges and clean thoroughly before proceeding to next step - our Inkjet411 support links are provided below to help you diagnose the issue.

1) Clean cartridge/printer electrical contacts. Also inspect printer's internal carriage flex cables for surface damage (i.e. burn marks) or an uneven contact surface (by which the cartridge's rear electrical contacts mates with).
http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

2) Perform either of the 'B' procedures below to verify HP Officejet 4315 printer and ink cartridge electrical performance.

B.1. Perform Tap 43 test: [for most older HP Officejet printer models with keypads]

1. Press * and # keys at same time
2. Enter 1234 (or 124). The 'Underware' menu should be displayed.
3. Using left/right arrow keys, navigate to Special Reports/Reports Menu (......or 'System Menu' / 'Information Menu' if Reports Menu is not available). Select Enter.
4. Using left/right arrow keys, navigate to 'Extended Self Test'.
5. Select Enter to print test print - evaluate test print. If excessive nozzles are missing from the stair step pattern, then perform cartridge cleaning to correct.
6. Using left/right arrow keys, navigate to 'print-mech button tap' menu.
7. Select Ok ('code = 0' will be displayed); click and hold Right Arrow until 'code = 43' is displayed. NOTE: enter 'code = 41' if 'code =43' does not activate the diagnostic print report.
8. Select Ok. Within one minute the Tap 43/41 diagnostic test pattern should be initiated and print. The test page prints.

--- Providing the color cartridge is partially functioning, the diagnostic test print will be printed (this is a forced service print test which is mainly used for the evaluation of ink cartridge electrical health). A good HP 21/27/56 black cartridge should display 416 good nozzles (26x16 grid), while a good HP 22/28/57/58 color ink cartridge should show 300 good nozzles (10x10 color grid). For reference, please refer to video at link below to help evaluate test pattern. [NOTE: HP 56/57/58 and HP21/22 cartridges are electrically similar]: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2358


B.2. Print Diagnostic Self-Test Page (only available on select HP printer models):

1. Press the Setup Button located on the bottom center of the control panel, beneath the LED readout.
2. Press 2 to select "Print Reports"
3. Press 6 to select "Self-Test Report" on the number keypad
4. Examine the resulting self-test page that prints. There should be lines extending all the way across the page in black, yellow, cyan and magenta. A missing black line indicates a problem with the black or photo cartridge. Faded, streaked or missing lines in the other colors indicates a problem with the color ink cartridge. Refer to video at link below to help evaluate test pattern.

I don't know how to refill?


Refilling HP color printer ink cartridges saves money and time spent running to the store to find the right ink cartridge, which sometimes is out of stock. By having the refill kits for the HP ink cartridge, you can just refill the cartridge when the ink runs out. The refilling process is easy to do and anyone can do it in a few minutes. The ink kits come with directions and all the colors one will need to refill the ink cartridge.

1.Place a piece of paper towel on a flat surface. Remove the empty ink cartridge from the printer. To do this, open the cover and wait for the ink dispenser to move the ink to the open door. Lift up the tap that holds the ink cartridge in place and pull out the cartridge. Push the tap holder back down and close the cover.
2.Place the ink cartridge on the paper towel. Gather the ink refilling kit together with directions and place the ink jars on the paper towel along with the syringe needle.
3.Find the indents on the top of the empty ink cartridge. Poke these holes open with the pen. Sit the cartridge down and open the ink containers. The colors are yellow, cyan and magenta.
4.Read the directions to see where each color goes in the ink cartridge. Insert the syringe needle into the ink container and raise the stopper up until you have the recommended amount of ink to fill into the particular hole.
5.Insert the needle into the hole on the ink cartridge and slowly dispense it into the cartridge. Remember to go slow with this step. If you see the ink oozing out, stop filling and wipe with a paper towel.
6.Cover the holes with the tabs that come in the refill kit or you can use tape. Make sure the hole is sealed to prevent spilling or the ink drying up. Then replace the ink cartridge back into the holder in the printer.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

How I can refill my HP 27 Cartridge at home...


Hi,

please follow the instructions........

  • 1

    Purchase an ink refill kit that is specific for the HP 27 color ink cartridge. Look over the packaging to insure that it states that the kit is for the particular make and model. Using other types of cartridges may not work properly.

  • 2

    Place several paper towels down to prevent any ink residue from damaging other objects. Place the ink cartridge onto the paper towels. Put on a pair of rubber gloves to prevent ink from staining hands.

  • 3

    Peel off the top label gently from the cartridge.

  • 4

    Observe the three holes that are located on top of the cartridge. There is a solo hole located near a rectangular tab that protrudes and two other holes located next two rectangular indentations into the plastic on the top of the cartridge.

  • 5

    Take a toothpick and gently stick it down inside each hole to verify the color. Take a sharpie marker and mark next to each hole with the correct coloring for ease. Use "M" for the magenta color, "Y" for yellow and "B" for blue.

  • 6

    Take a piece of masking tape and place over two of the holes to prevent ink spillage from mixing into other color positions.

  • 7

    Read over the ink cartridge refill kit for the appropriate amount of ink needed to fill the syringe with the correct color for the uncovered hole.

  • 8

    Expel any excessive ink from the syringe. Insure that you have the correct amount of ink by following the markers on the side of the syringe.

  • 9

    Place a paper towel over the end of the syringe and while holding the tip upwards, gently press or tap the syringe plunger to expel any air.

  • 10

    Insert the syringe needle into the appropriate color hole until the tip hits the bottom of the cartridge. Pull the syringe up a little from the bottom of the cartridge to prevent blockage when expelling ink.

  • 11

    Expel the ink into the color hole slowly. Stop if ink begins to protrude out of the color hole. Take a cotton swab and gently wipe the outside of the color hole and then cover with tape.

  • 12

    Take the syringe apart and rinse thoroughly to prevent ink colors from blending. Take a cotton swab and dry out the inside of the syringe.

  • 13

    Repeat above steps for the remaining two color positions that are left.

  • 14

    Gently take a needle and put a hole in each tape that covers the color holes for ventilation. Allow the cartridge to sit for at least one hour after completing refill instructions.

  • 15

    Reattach the original top label.



  • Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

    How to refill ink in hp blck cartridge


  • Purchase an ink refill kit at an office supply store. (Staples, Walmart, and Costco all carry this inexpensive kit. It usually costs about half the price of an average printer cartridge.)
  • Gather your kit, a roll of paper towels, and some clear scotch tape together on a large flat working surface, a table or desk.
  • 3Remove the empty cartridge from your printer. (Remember to close your printer lid or door while you are working.)
  • 4Cover your hands with a pair of disposable plastic gloves while you work with the messy ink.
  • 5Take a paper towel and fold it in half twice. Work over the paper towel to catch any leaking ink.
  • 6Place the empty cartridge on it.
  • 7Read the instruction manual included with the refill kit to learn how to refill your particular type of cartridge. (The following instructions are just a general guide).
  • 8Locate the fill holes on the top of the cartridge. The depressions can be felt by rubbing your finger across the label.
  • 9Use a sharp pencil to pierce the refill holes in the top of the ink cartridge. (Correct places can also be found in the kit instructions).
  • 10In addition to black, there are three colors of ink: magenta, cyan, and yellow. Follow the kit instructions on which hole to insert each color OR push a toothpick into the holes to identify the colours as markings on the printer cartridge are sometimes there to fool you into putting the wrong colours into the cartridge ink chambers.
  • 11Insert the long needle on the refill ink bottle into the correct hole.
  • 12Slowly, add the ink. Carefully watch to be sure that you do not over-fill.
  • 13Stop quickly as soon as you see a bit of ink oozing out of the hole. Without letting go of the bottle, slowly release the air, sucking a little ink back out of the ink cartridge, before you remove the needle completely.
  • 14Carefully daub the cartridge contacts on the paper towel, you should see a splotch of the ink leaking out onto the paper towel.
  • 15Cover the hole with a small piece of clear scotch tape. (This works better than the seal dots included in the kit.) Make sure that no ink is leaking out of the top holes. (That's where the clear tape comes in handy.) Be careful not to cross contaminate the colors.
  • 16Repeat steps 11-15 for each ink color.
  • 17After you have refilled all three colors, carefully blot (don't wipe or rub) the cartridge printhead on a folded piece of paper towel. You may need to do this several times. Do this until it stops bleeding and you see an even stripe of three colors showing up on the towel.
  • 18If the blot shows the colors either faded or not at all, blot on wet paper towel and again on dry, to get the ink flowing.
  • 19Replace the ink cartridge into the printer. Never, ever install a leaking print cartridge.
  • 20Immediately print something, anything, just to get the ink flowing. Print several test pages, preferable photos with a lot of different colors.
  • 21Follow the cleaning or priming cycles for your specific printer.

    “Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

    I am assuming from your brief problem description that you are getting bad colors when you changed your color cartridge. Are you using a new and certified HP ink cartridge? Are you doing a refill of your old ink cartridge or have bought one of those "re-manufactured" cartridges? The head in the cartridge is very sensitive - when they are damaged or poorly handled - it could result in cross contamination of the color inks. Hence - the brownish color you see could be the result of that cross-contam. My impression is that the remanufactured or older or continously refilled cartridges may be more prone to getting damaged - maybe bec of inherent wear out. Hope this helps.
