HP 3100 series printing woes

The printer will not print in black and I cannot find any head cleaning utility that maintains the printer. All other printers I have had, have a utility for cleaning the heads. Any ideas? how to you perform a cleaning on this type of printer, or test the page: the previous suggestion was for any printer, but could not figure out how to use for this.

    I'm looking for the utilities for this printer.

    I can not do a nozzle check or anything, I'm running window's vista which is most of the problem I'm sure.

It is not related to color issues but simply to unavailability of drivers in Vista/Window 7 for the HP Laserjet 3100/3150. If you want a possible resolution visit this forum at HP and read towards the end. http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?admit=109447626+1244754155930+28353475&threadId=1063558

I have 2 hp F2100 printers that will only print in


Problem may be clogged print heads. This not uncommon, especially if printer sat idle for an extended period. If you can see the print heads after removing the ink cartridge you can try cleaning it with a Q-TIP moistened in warm water or alcohol. You can also google "print head cleaning", there are several site that have step by step instruction for cleaning and/or removing the print head. If the head is beyond repair it is cheaper to buy a new printer than have the head replaced.

Hi minioka

Refer to your printer User Guide, or download it from your local Epson website. Refer to: How To, Checking Printer Condition and Maintaining, Cleaning the Print Head. This explains how to do it using the print utility or the control panel. In simple terms you hold down the fontb1.gif maintenance button for three seconds.
