Very slow printing and missing colours HP PhotoSmart 7762

My HP PhotoSmart 7762 stopped printing black but with no low ink warning. I changed the cartridge but it then slowed down almost to a standstill. It misses lines and colours but in a random way and now seems to be stuck in ''Printer calibration - load plain paper and press OK'' mode. When I do that the rollers whir once, the cradle moves once and then it all stops for 10 - 15 seconds. it then makes a slight whirring noise and stops again. Printing then starts one slight movement at a time with long gaps between each twitch. I have plenty of memory available and don't need to defragment. Is my printer dead?
Mike.

If you try the print head alignment or head cleaning wizard under the maintenance tab, they may help!

You should first try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for the printer. If this doesn't correct the problem, try replacing the cables to the printer.

SOURCE: HP Photosmart C6100 All-In-One Printer stopped printing black ink

Hey - I have an HP Photosmart 3310 All-in-one and my black ink cartridge wasn't printing. I bought a brand new cartridge - and it still wasn't working.

So - I did the reset thing where you unplug the printer, wait 30 seconds, HOLD DOWN "#" AND "6" and plug it back in at the same time and PRESTO! the black ink is working again!

TRY IT!

SOURCE: I changed the black ink cartridge and the printer

Calibrate your new blank ink cartridge, have some nozzle check, cleaning check, and printer alignment. This are procedure that new ink cartridge will have to calibrate before you use. Epson printer are very sensitive when capable of changing ink cartridge. Unlink HP directly work without any print test because the cartridge head and ink join together, Epson with ink cartridge and the head separate.
Have some test on it at Printer Maintenance.
I'm sure 100% works on it.
Good luck!

Hp Photosmart 6510 Black ink will not print


It is a known defect among many PhotoSmart printers, including the 6510. The black ink was programmed to fail at between 50 to 60 black print cartridges. One HP whistleblower said a bug in this programmed failure causes the black ink to suddenly stop printing after 5 to 6 black ink changes instead. When you call in, they offer to sell you a new printer! The service guy I spoke with was extremely nervous. I refused to buy a new printer, given I had put less than a ream of paper through mine. I was on hold for about 10 minutes, then told there was no supervisor, but given an email address to write to. Three weeks later, still no response. Yes, a class action lawsuit needs to happen, not just for the printer malfunction, but for the hours I soent trying to fix it, and new cartridges I bought, thinking I had bad ones.

I have a HP photosmart D7460 printer,when I bought it it had all the ink cartridges with it.After first install it told me that Cyan & light Cyan were missing & Black was incompatible as it worked...


you are lucky to have use the cartridges of your printer for 19 months. In my office experience, I am actually replacing the cartridges of my printers within a year. Just a regular life span of an ink refilled cartridge.

What is a incompatible print cartridge? Its coming up with a warning exclamation mark and it wont print?


What is a incompatible print cartridge? The printer "Thinks" that the print cartridge, is NOT an original HP PhotoSmart one. Even print cartridge have chips.

Why does color ink in Photosmart C7280 go down when you are only printing using black ink


Unless you set the printer settings to black and white it mixes colored ink to create black. It does this by default. Go to start printers and faxes. Right click on printer icon.Click printing preferences to change this.If youre using hp tool box setting is grayscale black only.
Hope this helps.

Suddenly stopped printing in black though colour is OK.I've tried all the usual things!


the ink head is probably jammed with dry ink. wihen the head is jammed, a lot of ink will pool at the bottom right of the printer. clean that pool, and dab the black ink head with a damp paper towel, but do not rub. blow the ink head with a can of compressed air. run a nozzle cleaning, and nozzle check until the printer is printing better. the nozzle check prints out grid for each color. if the grid is complete the printer is fine. sometimes a few horizontal bars will be missing and cannot be cleaned.

Colour cartridge missing but I only want to print


No you cannot. Each one of your cartridges is smart chipped. When this cartridge registers as empty it acts as an on/off switch thus turning the printer off.'

You need to replace the empty cartridge in order to print.

Go printer settings and check option to print only black.
