Common problem, My nephew once printed 47 copies of "Bob the Builder poster" If you are using Win Xp - click on start then settings or printer & Faxes. Double click your printer and delete all the pending printing jobs on the list. Turn the printer off and on and it should be fine. Good Luck

SOURCE: HP L7680 Print Heads need real cleaning!

If the ink has dried up in the nozzles try putting a wet cloth in the microwave to get it hot enough to produce a little steam and set the cartridge, nozzles down on the damp cloth until ink starts to ooze from the cartridge. May require a couple of tries. Try using the cleaning program again.

Be careful not to touch the copper contacts on the cartridges.

SOURCE: How do I clean the printer head for a HP deskjet 6540?

Have a look at the manual for this printer:
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00251861.pdf

Section 8.5 and 8.6 describes very detailed how to clean the cartridges automatically and manually.
If you have, use latex gloves, so you don't have that mess of ink on your fingers.

Enjoy!

truly cleaning the heads would involve getting your hands dirty :o)
However, you can check the HP software utility (that came with your printer) and see if that setting exists

Cleaning your head might resolve your problem. Perform the below steps to clean the head:

Print Head Cleaning / Head Refreshing If the printed nozzle check pattern is broken, missing, or a specific color is not printed, clean the print head (Cleaning) or print head deep cleaning (Deep Cleaning). Note:
  1. Cleaning the print head consumes a small amount of ink. Cleaning too often reduces the amount of ink in the ink tanks.

  2. Print head cleaning is performed when you connect the power cord. Your machine may perform print head cleaning periodically to avoid clogging.
Overview:
Step1:
Print the Nozzle Check Pattern.
To check whether the print head nozzles are clogged, print the Nozzle Check Pattern.
downicon.gif If the print quality is poor, perform print head cleaning.
Step 2:
Perform print head cleaning.
This unclogs the print head nozzles
Print the Nozzle Check Pattern again.
To check whether the print head nozzles are clogged, print the Nozzle Check Pattern.
If the print quality is still poor, perform two print head cleanings.
downicon.gif Print the Nozzle Check Pattern again.
Step 3:
Perform deep print head cleaning.
This is a more powerful cleaning.

Displaying the Maintenance screen
  1. Ensure that the printer is powered on.

  2. Press the <Menu> button.

  3. Press the left or right cursor to select [Maintenance/settings], then press <OK>.

  4. Press the left or right cursor to select [Maintenance], then press <OK>.

Print Nozzle Check Pattern
  1. Press the Open button to open the output tray.

  2. Load letter-sized plain paper in the auto sheet feeder (ASF) or the cassette.

  3. Display the Maintenance screen on the printer.

  4. Press the up or down cursor to select [Nozzle check], then press the <OK>.

    mp800_nozzlecheck.gif

  5. Press the up or down cursor to select [Yes], then press <OK>. (The nozzle check pattern is printed.)

  6. Confirm the nozzle check pattern.

< 2 > The abnormal nozzle check pattern

< 4 > White lines are present in the color ink pattern.

  3. Press the up or down cursor to select [Yes], then press <OK> to start print head cleaning.

    Note:

  2. Press the up or down cursor to select [Deep cleaning], then press <OK>.

    mp800_deepcleaning.gif

  3. Press the up or down cursor to select [Yes], then press <OK> to start print head deep cleaning.

    Note:

  4. Print the nozzle check pattern and check the print head status.

    Note:
    If the printed result does not improve even after doing print head deep cleaning, turn off the printer. Then, after 24 hours or later, do print head deep cleaning again. (After a given time interval, ink could dissolve itself, resulting in ink unclogging.)

How do I clean the HP designjet 110plus printhead


You need to go to the hp download site and download the System Maintenance Utility Software. Its free, but you need it before you can clean the print heads. also, for some reason it works best when hooked to the network, not directly to Computer.

New cartridge won't print


  1. Make sure you removed the tape from the ink cartridge.
  2. Press the <Menu> button on the printers operation panel.

  3. Press the left [<] or right [>] arrow buttons to select [MAINTENANCE].

  4. Press the <Set> button.

  5. Press [<] or [>] to select the cleaning setting you want. Select [HEAD CLEANING] for normal print head cleaning. Select [HEAD REFRESHING] for deep print head cleaning.

    Note: [HEAD REFRESHING] uses more ink than [HEAD CLEANING], so perform [HEAD REFRESHING] only when necessary.

  6. Press <Set>.

  7. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern and perform at least two Head Refreshing if the pattern is not correct.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
