Hi lovely michelle,
Are you sure this message appears in your computer?. I never heard such message in my long time as service engineer. Did you mean 'The ink tank is empty' ?. If this message appears means the ink has run out and need replacement to continue printing. Hope this help you. Have nice day lovely Michelle.
Regards,

My hp Photosmart 7450 printer was working, then in the middle of printing it stopped and there is an error message on my computer, the green light is blinking on printer but won't print


First things first... try connecting your printer to another pc or laptop and try printing... make sure spooling is on in the driver and there are no other programs running...

if issue reappears then

It sounds like your printer cartridges are the issue

I would try reinstalling them...

if that does not work then

I would try cleaning your printer cartridge...

Gather cleaning supplies:
Clean distilled water. Use bottled or filtered water if distilled water is not available.
Clean cotton swabs or any soft, lint-free material (coffee filters work well).
Remove both cartridges.
Unplug the printer.
Lightly moisten the lint-free cleaning material with clean water.
Clean the cartridge contacts. Avoid touching the nozzles. Replace the cleaning material if it gets dirty.

If that does not work then I would try ordering some new cartridges

Black ink won't print and I just changed the ink


Try using the photo paper option instead of the plain paper option.

I was using plain paper but, selecting the plain paper option...I could barely read the print. The photo paper option worked great!

Hope it helps!

I have to print a word document in black. Because I have no yellow ink, the printer won't print anything. I have tried everything and just want to print a simple one page document and I have plenty of...


here's a solution i came across when dealing with the same problem. apparently the printer expects all of the cartridges to be full and has a sensor to make sure they are even when only printing black. hope this helps!

My HP deskjet 2050 all-in-one printer only shoots out blank paper and won't print. It used to say there was no paper in it, which there was. It scans & prints just fine - just won't print...


Any error messages on the printer digital screen or the desktop? I take it the "The ink is fine" means that there is ink in the cartridges!

Try a test print via the Control Panel> Printers and Faxes> properties > Print test page.

Hi I am not getting any Red from my printer


It's possible magenta ink to be finished, or the print head is dirty and it has dry ink on it. You must clean it with hot water. You must use the printer from time to time to avoid to dry the ink cartridge or print head.

It prints, but not visible, i change ink on all of them and is the same only in black, all other its fine on my MFC-420cn.


You have a dirty ir clogged print head. You can sometimes get it to work again by running a lot of cleaning cycles. 10-30 cycles is sometimes how many it can take. Unfortunately sometimes that won;t work so you have to hit it with a bigger hammer in this case you can clean the print head using q-tips or lint free paper towel and vinegar. The vinegar dissolves dried ink. If this works (it usually does the trick) the printer can work as well as the first day you got it.

Remove the ink cartridges. Then to clean it you need to wet the swab or the towel and gently rub the print head where it touches the paper. You will see a little ink then a lot then it will fade out as you get the head clean. Generally after it starts fading out that means you have most of the dried ink cleaned off. Replace the ink carts and then run a cleaning cycle and you should have your printer working again.

If none of these work then it may be too badly clogged and you should just consider getting a new printer as the print head is worth about what a new printer will cost.

Printing won't work.


Good day sir/maam, hi, when you test print it usually prints letters and no lines are printed. try first if the printer is setup to economy/draft or pictures, if lines are faded, the ink cartridges maybe dirty. manual cleaning is needed, the ink path starts from the ink cartridge to the cradle or carrier then to paper. so any dried ink that blocks the path can affect the printout. you can use warm water to loosen dried ink. remove the cartridges and cradle from the printer as you clean them.

Prints half the line


It sounds like your print head is dirty. Try cleaning the printhead in using the printers options, If that does not work replace the black printhead.
