Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
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?
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.

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!

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.
