Re: Print Heads

I had this problem in the past. I was given "reset" instructions for the printer, which helped for quite a while. Can't find those now, though - does anyone have the steps to reset the printheads on the D135?

I can not get Yellow to print

Personally I would just take out the print head and flush it through with warm water. When it is clean, add all the inks and run it through the clean print heads utility, until the test sheet looks correct. Another point, do not ever switch off the printer, as it cannot periodically clean itself. If it cannot clean itself the print heads can dry up and become clogged.

False ink empty

Are you sure its exclamation mark?..
This warning message related to print head. (warn out). When you are replacing ink tube assembly use dummy print heads to do the priming (new ink tubes are empty & they have to fill with ink)..
Action: Remove all cartridges and print heads, switch on the printer follow the screen message.(Insert cartridges first next dummy print heads).once its recognizes cartridges then it switch over to print heads,insert dummy print heads. Once printer recognized the dummy print heads, printer will perform priming, during priming dummy print heads will filled with respective inks.(follow the display message)Remove dummy print heads & insert normal print heads. Wait till printer recognizes print heads, load the paper & wait till performs the calibration, once calibration is successfully done issue closed.
If calibration not successfully done, check align print out for which print head is not printed properly, replace it..
Pl ensure that minimum 50% ink levels required in cartridges before performing the priming. Best of luck..

Trying to copy and nothing printing. Ink levels are good, paper is coming out

Perform "clean print heads" in printer properties select printing preferences,service then click clean nozzles, perform twice or thrice then do the nozzle test, if print heads are recovered your will be in safe, other wise***Two print heads are in this printer each print head leads two colors, left print head leads black & yellow and other one leads cyan & magenta. You need to replace the print heads based on the color which missed.

Hi i have a hp officejet 4355 all in one printer at my place. i m having problem fixing with the cartridge as it is showing error. pls guide

Problems with Hewlett Packard Officejet 4355 printing can often be due to issues with the cartridges. The printer has two cartridges, one black and white, and one color. Both can be physically inspected for problems. The printer also has a self-test report to determine if there is a non-obvious problem with the cartridge. The report can provide valuable information, including status.

  • 1

    Take the black ink cartridge out of the slot on the right. Be careful not to touch the ink nozzles or the copper contacts.

  • 2

    Look at the cartridge and make sure that the plastic shipping tape isn't still attached. There shouldn't be any tape covering the ink nozzles.

  • 3

    Replace the black cartridge and then perform Steps 1 and 2 on the color cartridge. The color cartridge is the one on the left side.

  • 4

    Print a self-test report. Load paper in the tray and press "Setup." Press "2" and then "4." The HP Officejet 4355 will print a report. Make sure the lines of color extend across the page. Missing, faded or streaky lines can indicate a cartridge failure. If the color bars don't show as black, cyan, magenta and yellow, you should clean the cartridges.

  • 5

    Press "Setup" and then press "6" and then "1." The print cycle will commence. Allow it to complete and then print another test report. If the test still shows errors, replace the cartridges.

    I have replace all of my ink jet cartridges and it sees the black and magenta, but I am still getting the ink empty error message for cyan and yellow. I have removed and reinstalled atleast 20 times,...

    did you make sure to remove the stickers covering the print heads? double check. other than that you can clean the heads with a qtip and isopropyl alcohol, they may be dirty with old ink and not able to see the new cartridge properly.

    No black ink printing

    Ah, solved already. Cleaning the black print head a few more times did it for me.

    Printer makes noise while cleaning heads

    Grinding noise is most likely caused by the carriage lock getting stuck and holding the print head at the home position. The noise is caused by the toothed belt that pulls the head back and forth, skipping over the splines on the motor drive wheel. If you have been able to print since the problem occurred, chances are that it has freed itself up and will be fine. Regarding the loss of cyan & magenta output, follow the solution given in my previous posts to complete a manual under-head cleaning cycle. This should get you going. Check this previous post for cleaning info:
