Question about HP OfficeJet 7310 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printing blotchy I just changed the cartridge, and it gave me a message when I was done, but now I dont' remember what it said exactly. It was something about it failed the printout. When I printed the test page, it has blues and blacks and grays but no colors. Since then, I put in the color cartridge, but it doesn't offer the opportunity to print the test page again and it still prints one line fine, then the next line only has the top half printed, then it will print two lines fine. I'm a court reporter and am trying to get this transcript to the lawyers this morning. Can you please advise? Thanks. TStephens

Reinstall both cartridges again and close housing, if it does not print test page turn off the printer and wait a few seconds and turn it back on.

Printing is very light and spotty


this is a thermal printer... no ink cartridge... I'm having the same problem... light blotchy printing. Found a users manual online that suggests changing the batteries. On my way to purchase 6 AA batteries to see if this solves the problem.

Bad printing quality


when the print window opens, click on properties, make sure it's not set to "Quick", which can cause light and blotchy prints.

Change all ink message


Your Lexmark cartridges may be like my HP ones--they have a chip that the machine reads so they cannot be reused without doing some tricks to fool the printer.

My HP remembers the last 2 or 3 cartridges and also will not use ones that have passed the expiration date that is stamped on the cartridge. I'll tell you what worked for my HP.

Check the date on your ink cartridge.  I bet it has expired. If you put in a "new"cartridge but it is even an HP one with an older date, it may not work.
I had my printer stop in the middle of a print job.  It was printing fine and suddenly would not print.  So I refilled the cartridge with an ink kit I had on hand and reinserted it--no go!  Then I opened a remanufactured cartridge I had bought some time ago and inserted it.  No go, despite the fact I could see ink coming from the jets.  I finally gave up and bought a new HP ink cartridge, and it worked just fine.  But it bugged me why the new one would work and the other two that seemed just fine would not.

Later I learned that HP has a chip that reads the expiration date on the cartridges and that is what keeps those old ones from printing.  I found one trick of setting my date on my computer back to a year earlier than the exp date on the cartridge.  I saw the date on the remanufactured one I had tried earlier was 2005, so I set my computer date to today date but year 2004.  After forcing me to do print alignments several times and take the remanufactured cartridge out and put it back, I got it to print just fine.  And that 2005 cartridge that would not work earlier is what I am printing with right now.
Be advised, though, if you try the date setback, that HP printer will buck and try every way to not let you use that old cartridge.  You must say no to reflashing if HP tries to pull that on you.  And you will take out and put back that same cartridge multiple times and keep printing alignment sheets 3 or 4 times before you are successful.  But, if you persist, you can get it to work.

Balck printing


Go into the properties for the printer (right click on the printer icon in the printers/faxes folder or the control panel and select properties). From there you can tell it to print in color, black and white, or gray scale. (You may have to go into the printing preferences option, I can't remember exactly where but somewhere in the properties is that option).

Hp 1317 printer problem


Hey Leds I think you refill your cartridge yourself. If you do so, then try to extract some ink from the head side with the help of "cartridge base (comes with kit)", then it will work smoothly, and lines will not appear. And if you refill your cartridge many times, try to change your cartridge.
