Look at the toner carts. There's a 1/4 inch small window on each end, cut a small piece of electrical tape and cover each window, should let you print til you get new ones.

HP6988 printer skips lines and only prints bottom half of black lines. Installed new black cartridge, printed test page. Still no change.


Most deskjets include a maintenance section. Open this printer in PRINTERS on Control Panel (assuming Windows). right click on the printer and select properties. You will have to look for the maintenance section. There you should find an option to "clean heads". You may need to do this several times if never done before. After each cleaning, print a test pattern. Hope this helps.

How do you replace the ink cartride in a hp 2175 all in one printer


1. Prepare the replacement cartridge by pressing down and back on the top of the protective plastic, then sliding the cartridge out.
2. Set both the cartridge and empty cartridge protector aside.
3. Turn on your printer and lift the access door until it locks into place. The print carriage will move to the center.
4. Once the print carriage has stopped moving, raise the latch to release the empty cartridge. 5. Remove the empty cartridge by pulling towards you. If you are replacing the tri-color cartridge and need to remove the black ink cartridge temporarily, use the empty cartridge protector to hold it. 6. Hold the replacement cartridge by the sides and remove the black plastic tape. 7. Insert the replacement cartridge into the appropriate slot (left for tri-color, right for black) until it snaps into place. 8. Pull the cartridge latch towards you and press down until it snaps into place. 9. Close the access door. -------

New color ink cartridge does not print red. reason?


Hi,

Here is my advice:

Step one: Run the clean print cartridges utility

1.
Press the Setup button.
2.
Press the down arrow key.
3.
Select Clean Print Cartridge and then press OK . The device prints a test page.
4.
Examine the test page. If the print quality of the page is good, stop here. If the print quality is bad, go on to the next step for further cleaning.
5.
Open the Printer Toolbox . There are two ways to do this:
*
Open HP Solution Center , select the Settings menu, then the Print Settings submenu, and finally the Printer Toolbox .
*
Open Printers and Faxes in the Windows Control Panel , then right-click your printer icon and choose Properties . Click Printing Preferences . Click the Features tab, then click the Printer Services button.
6.
The Printer Toolbox opens. On the Device Services tab, click Clean the Print Cartridges , then follow the on-screen instructions. Up to three levels of cleaning are available. Discard or recycle the page that prints.

Step two: Replace the problem cartridge (you probably have a defective cartridge)
If a cartridge replacement was not tried previously to solve this problem, replace the problem cartridge now

Cause and prevention
Color mix is usually caused by a material touching the nozzles. Ink can wick along the material and travel from nozzle to nozzle. When different colors of ink mix in this way, the result is muddy, inaccurate colors.
Missing colors occur when the cartridge nozzles dry out, or when a color is exhausted because of specific printing demands.

*
Do not remove the protective tape from a new print cartridge until just before you install it. Once you remove the tape, do not reapply it.
*
After you have removed the protective tape, do not allow anything to touch the nozzles.
*
Print at least once a month to keep the print cartridges in good working order.
*
Always turn the printer off by pressing the button on the printer control panel, rather than by unplugging the printer. Turning the printer off properly allows it to protect the cartridges.
*
If you are removing a cartridge from the printer temporarily (for instance, removing the black cartridge in order to install the photo cartridge), put it in a cartridge protector.
*
If you do not have a cartridge protector and need to remove a cartridge temporarily, put it in an airtight plastic tub. Make sure nothing touches the nozzles. Do not use a plastic bag. If you intend to store print cartridges in a tub for a long period of time, place color cartridges with the nozzles down, and black cartridges with the nozzles up. Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Hi, my cyan cartridge has ran out of ink and now it wont let me print until its been replaced even though im printing in black and white? and advice?xxxx


Epson will not let you print unless you have all the cartridges in with ink. Even though I was printing in Black, I noticed all my cartridges were running out of ink, so I sent Epson an email. Got a response, and they explained, that it has to have in all cartridges.
Weird eh? Crooked, if you ask me.

Good Luck.

If a cartridge is expended, you must replace it to be able to print. If a cartridge is low, you can continue printing until a cartridge needs replacement. You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expendedI have come across this issue many times and unforunately you have to replace the colour carts in order to continue to use the printer.

Not printing after color cartridge ran out - new black cartridge installed.


Yes, this printer has fixed printheads and must have ink in each color to prevent damage to the printheads. Even when printing black only each color is spit in the servicing area to keep the printhead unclogged.
