Hi i have a hp officejet 4355 all in one printer at my place. i m having problem fixing with the cartridge as it is showing error. pls guide


Problems with Hewlett Packard Officejet 4355 printing can often be due to issues with the cartridges. The printer has two cartridges, one black and white, and one color. Both can be physically inspected for problems. The printer also has a self-test report to determine if there is a non-obvious problem with the cartridge. The report can provide valuable information, including status.

  • 1

    Take the black ink cartridge out of the slot on the right. Be careful not to touch the ink nozzles or the copper contacts.

  • 2

    Look at the cartridge and make sure that the plastic shipping tape isn't still attached. There shouldn't be any tape covering the ink nozzles.

  • 3

    Replace the black cartridge and then perform Steps 1 and 2 on the color cartridge. The color cartridge is the one on the left side.

  • 4

    Print a self-test report. Load paper in the tray and press "Setup." Press "2" and then "4." The HP Officejet 4355 will print a report. Make sure the lines of color extend across the page. Missing, faded or streaky lines can indicate a cartridge failure. If the color bars don't show as black, cyan, magenta and yellow, you should clean the cartridges.

  • 5

    Press "Setup" and then press "6" and then "1." The print cycle will commence. Allow it to complete and then print another test report. If the test still shows errors, replace the cartridges.

    Bought new ink and not all the colors are printing black ink works good but colors red and yellow not showing up


    Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached.

    To reattach the cartridge check the following steps :

    turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head.

    Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report.

    Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

    HP 4600 printer shows all cartridges OK and the print quality adjustment for all colors is set at 0. Have calibrated and adjusted color. Yellow does not print Pages come out in pinks


    Try a new cartridge. If this doesn't solve the problem then check the lens cover of the yellow printhead. It should open when you close the front cover. You can check it by taking out all the cartridges and than close the frontcover slowly. Watch the lenscovers and check if they are opening when you close the front cover. Good luck, Gerrit Jan

    Despite installing new cartridges,cleaning and priming, my HP Deskjet 710C prints pink only. Using Windows XP test page shows no blue, or yellow.


    hi,
    do you installing both cartridges (black and colour)?
    if you do so, my advice is to reinstall the driver for your printer.

    if you install ONLY the black cartridge, and the color cartridge remain the old one, (which in my opinion is the present case), your problem is from the color cartridge.
    The color cartridge have 3 colors and this are: cyan (some kind of blue), yellow and magenta (similar with a pink color, but more intense). The problem is simple: in your color cartridge has left only the magenta color, cyan and yellow tanks are empty.

    have 2 options:
    1. buy a new color cartridge
    2. refill the color cartridge.

    Cartridge alignment


    So if the magenta or yellow are not showing up, it may mean you have installed an empty (or dried up) color cartridge. If you have it, put the "low" volume color cartrige back in and print an alignment page. If you don't have the cartridge, no problem, just print a page from Google. Don't worry about the alignment until you print from Google. See if color is even available. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
