SOURCE: DeskJet 950C Pink Printing problem

Assuming that you have the correct print drivers and the color is set correctly on your software. Then the issue is often caused by the ink drying and clogging the injectors. Open the lid and remove the ink cartridges, then unplug the printer. Then get a swab or Q tip and using bottled water (do not use tap water). Moisten the swab and wipe the areas on the printer where the ink cartridge contacts the printer. You should see ink on the swab. After you let it completely dry then place the cartridge back in and turn the printer back on. Try to print again. If it is still not printing with the correct colors then you could have a problem with the injector circuitry. At that point it is cheaper to buy a new printer. You can get refurbished ink jet Dell printers at Dell.com under outlet for usually $30-$40 and a one year warranty.

SOURCE: HP Deskjet 1320 printer makes grinding noise and stalls before it prints

I think the noise is normal for hp deskjet. When starting up, the printer read the head existence, and do cleaning. is it the first replacement cartridge? Disable ink status monitor.

Hp 4480 how do you unpause it


The HP F4480 likely has a malfunctioning ink cartridge which is causing the printer hang (i.e. internal micro-electronics damage inside the HP 60 color or black ink cartridge). You can verify the electrical condition of both HP 60 ink cartridges by activating the Tap 41 diagnostic test report (see video here for complete instructions):

http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=440 (HP 60 - Deskjet F2400/F4400/F4500 models)
    1.While holding the Power button, press Cancel (X) button 4 times, then press the Color Copy button once.
    2.Release the Power button.
    3.The 'Tap 41' diagnostic test print should print.

    Providing the color cartridge is partially functioning the Tap 41 diagnostic test print will be printed (this is a forced service print test which is mainly used for the evaluation of ink cartridge electrical health). A good HP 60/60XL color cartridge should display 1248 good nozzles, while a good HP 60/60XL black ink cartridge should show 336 good nozzles. If the results yield anything different then the ink cartridge is likely damaged and will need to be replaced. Refer to 2nd video on how to read the printout.
    http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=440 (HP 60 - Deskjet F2400/F4400/F4500 models)
    http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=444 (HP 60 - Deskjet F4200 model)

    If the printer attempts to print the diagnostic test pattern (1 page) then the printer is generally considered operational and functional, if nothing is printed, but the printer attempts to print the pattern, then the tri-color ink cartridge is either empty, clogged or severely electrically damaged (black ink cartridge is not used). You can remove the tri-color cartridge, reactivate the tap 41 test and the printer will print the diagnostic test print in black ink.

Have new ink cartridges, however when I print a test page, nothing but the windows logo prints


You mean, the black color is completely absent from the printed page? Either the black cartridge is faulty and needs to be cleaned, or (less likely) the cartridge carriage is faulty.

Try running the "Printer Head Cleanup" routine from the printer manager maintenance menu.

Hp 9800 prints only quarter page


Try sending less pages to print and see what happens.
Try one to test and if it workks then send 24 of the 48 pages and finally the rest.

I have a HP Deskjet 1300n printer. I can print my email, pictures and items off the internet, but cannot print any word documents or notepad documents. When I print an excel document, I get an incomplete page-the grid lines will print,and text garbage from a adobe program but not all the text. When I do a test print page, I get an incomplete text page, but do not know how to solve this. I have removed and reloaded the printer software-no improvement. There are no new drivers to be installed.
