My HP Officejet Pro 8000 Printer will not print red, even though I just put a new ink cartridge in. The yellow & blue work fine. Help!


Try to uninstall and re-install the printer's software for this can be software issues. If that would not work try to remove and put back in the ink cartridge properly. If this would not work check warranty then call the printer's manufacturer.

How to restore your inkjet printer so it prints just like new!


Inkjet printers all operate the same basic way. There are differences but the basics are the same for any inkjet devices. Eventually a buildup occurs enough that your printer doesn't print. Cleaning cycles use more and since inkjet ink is worth about $8000 a gallon, this is a expensive way to clean something.

So what can we do to clean this just a bit cheaper? We need to find a suitable solvent that will dissolve these deposits without harming the print head. And the one that works great and is dirt cheap is good old household white vinegar. Next we want to get some lint free (preferred but not critical) paper towels. And a clean clear table top to work. You may want to put down some newspaper. This isn't that messy to do but it can get the odd bit of dissolved ink on things.

Now we take the printer and remove the paper and the ink cartridges and set aside. The print head is a small stamp sized thing on the bottom of the cartridge holder. Take about 1/3 of a sheet of paper towel and wet it with vinegar. Next you want to get the wetted towel under the print head. It should fit as this is where the paper goes you print. The towel is a thicker but it is soft. move the print head back and forth over the towel. When the towel is covered with ink, change it and repeat. Keep repeating this until the towel comes clean. It will only take a few minutes. When the towel is clean then you are done. Replace the ink cartridges and paper and you are ready to print.

My printer is not printing anything orange, it comes out pink. Just put in new cartridges.


It sounds like your yellow is not printing correctly (probably a clogged nozzle). If your printer has separate cartridges, replace the yellow. If you are using aftermarket cartridges, you should try using OEM cartridges since they are spec'd to the printer. If you are usng aftermarket or reloaded cartridges, the ink may not be up to specs. In any case the yellow ink cartridge needs to be replaced. Make sure to run a deep cleaning and alignment after replacing the cartridge.

Unable to put printer "on"


First pull the cartridge out and check the comm strip on the cartridge and the printer, Ink could have split on the comm ports ,, try to clean the ink off with alcohol on a cotton swab, then let dry and replace cartridge, then turn on print and try to print it out.

I replaced my hp ink catridges and the printer is still saying the ink is empty. What do I do?


You haven't mentioned what printer model but you can try th following.
Firstly, try removing your new cartridge and temporarily putting the old one back. Sometimes this will then show as a full cartridge even though it is empty, because the sensor electronics appears to get confused. Next, turn off your printer and turn it back on again, then take the old cartridge out and put the new one back. I cannot guarantee this will work, but it will be worth a try.

If it is not printing as it should even though the printer cable moves along the printing area, it could be a cartridge problem. If you have an old cartridge with a little ink in it, try to load it and see if the result is the same. Otherwise, you have to buy a new cartridge. Also, check if the print head is clogged with ink.

After installing the new ink, it will print a paper for U. put that paper in the scanner and press scan. It's a self-calibration. If that's not the problem, please state what the problem is.

New Ink cartridges registering as empty ...


Is it an HP printer? We had the same problem at work with print cartridges purchased at Staples. They have a major quality control problem. Your new print cartridge may be empty or dried out (died on the shelf). It's my problem at work, as I have over 80 HP deskjets, and Purchasing still insists on buying the Staples cartridges rather than the HP.

Sometimes if you shake a print cartridge really hard it may correct the problem. However, I would buy or borrow a black HP print cartridge and try it out in your printer. Works almost every time on the job. Good luck.

My printer will not print.


Is there a cable physically connecting the printer to the computer? If so, do you see the printer in Printers and Faxes?
