Printer wont print black ink


Before doing this, Please make sure that the black ink is in good level then try cleaning the print head of your printer.

to do that:

From computer:

- You need to launch the HP SOLUTION CENTER from your computer,
- at the bottom part, please click on settings.
- then, select the printer toolbox and select printer services.
- now, on the list, look for clean printhead and then follow the instructions.

From Front Panel:

- Press the Setup button. - Select Tools .
- Select Clean Printhead .

- it will print a diagnostic page. If the print out is not acceptable please do the second level of cleaning and so on.
- And if you do have the acceptable diagnostic page printout, please stop the cleaning process and try to print a document from your computer.

Won't accept new ink cartridge

Look inside where the ink goes, there is a spring on the right side, if it comes out of place it can cut the ribbon cable at the rear. If thats the case, you need a new printer.

All the information you need to for your printer is available here:

The short version for installing on your printer is to download the proper driver for your operating system from the "Drivers & Downloads" section (see link above).

After that it's just a case of accepting any warnings re: Signed drivers and following the instructions on the screen.

Hope that helps.

Printer will not print.

Printer does not printIf the printer is sitting idle and there is no output, check the following:

  1. Make sure that the printer has power.
  2. Check that the printer is not out of paper, ink, or toner and that it is not in an error state.
  3. Verify that the printer hardware is working before continuing. Run a self-test (refer to the printer manual for instructions).
  4. Check the printer cable and make sure that it is attached properly to the port and the printer. Refer to your printer documentation.
  5. If the printer is a serial printer, make sure that the baud rate at which the computer sends data to the printer matches the printer's baud rate. For instructions on how to reset the baud rate, see ``Printer output is illegible''.
  6. Make sure that the printer is enabled and accepting jobs. See ``Enabling and disabling printers'' and ``Accepting or rejecting print jobs''.
  7. Verify that the system has the port configured properly. See ``Port does not respond'' for more information.
  8. Make sure that the port is configured for the proper interrupt vector and that no other hardware is using that interrupt vector. See ``Interrupt vectors'' for more information. See your hardware documentation for information on configuring your ports.
  9. Test the printer port connection by redirecting the output of a command directly to the device.

Failing to install: computer freezes on license agreement stage


Did you run the setup before you plugged in the printer? You are supposed to only plug it in when the setup instructs you to do so.
