Question about HP Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

I have a HP Photosmart A520 series that will print out only about 40 to 44 pictures per ink cartridge. I have talked to others that own the same machine and they tell me they get 100 to 120. I have just bought my 5th cartridge, how do I extend it to get more pictures per cartridge?

This could be due to the print-head clogging up, or your ink cartridges being low.
First, I would suggest cleaning the printhead.

Setup menu -> Tools -> Clean Cartridges

Then try it once again. If this doesn't work, try cleaning the print head manually, as per this guide.

If the problem persists, buy new cartridges.

Photo black ink runs out b4 black on HP Photosmart C6380 printer


The black ink cartridge is larger than the photo black cartridge and black is used in photos to make the darker colors. Black text takes much less ink per page.

Hp photosmart a520 series carrige jam nothing


Hello there You can still try this Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Screen showing the message "remove and check right cartridge". Have done this several times and still can't print


I've had the same error:

Hold down the following keys:

Photosmart Express, Photo Fix, Reprints, Print Photos and then Help.

You'll get the message: "Enter Special Key Combo"

Press OK.

Scroll over to Reports then self test: and press ok, it should print. a selftest report.

If you get an error Pen in Chute 1, or 2, has tsr failure: Call/Chat with an HP technician.

How can I print Black only?


Hi

HP Inkjet printers work only if both the cartridges have ink unlike HP Laserjet printers.
If you want the printer to print only in black, Follow the steps

Start --->Control panel -- >Printers and faxes ---->Right click on the printer icon (HP c5100) select printing preferences.
Under printing prefences there u will see an option to print with black or print in gray scale.

Note:HP Inkjet printers like Photosmart C5180 will work only both the cartridges have ink.

Thanks
Riz
