SOURCE: HP 3210 black ink problem

I just posted my problem and found the solution on a different web page. It is this and it WORKS
All you have to do is HOLD DOWN FOUR BUTTONS AT THE SAME TIME: ( OK, Cancel, Black , Color ) and turn the power off. Do this at least twice and the unit will power up and go to maintenance. Then it was back to normal.
HP gives you a procedure that doesn't work! They just want to sell you a new one. They must know the solution if and old woman like me can figure it out with help from other people with the same problem

SOURCE: Black ink not working on HP C5180 Photosmart

Try a hard restart, which simply means unplugging the power cord of the printer, and replugging it after one minute has passed. If that does not work, then rerun the CD used to install the printer. Both techniques reprogram the electronics, to a certain extent.
You can also visit the HP website, to see what solutions are being offered for various printer problems. They probably have a number to call, in case you need to talk to a technician.
Hope these suggestions help you out.

SOURCE: black ink not coming through

I had the same problem. Ended up replacing the black/yellow "printhead" and that corrected the problem.

I bought all new cartridges, inserted them the way they were removed, but message board still says defected cartridges. how to install ink properly and make error message disappear?


Here is a video from HP explaining the process. IF you followed this procedure and are getting errors, then you may have bigger issues. I am assuming you are using genuine HP ink, not remanufactured or refilled cartridges.

How do you remove printhead?


Most HP printers include the print head with the ink carts. Replace the ink cart, get a new print head.

Why does my Officejet Pro 8600 have lines across colour printing which do not appear to be removed when I clean the printheads. Any advice?


I've noticed this on my all-in-one HP Office Jet. And though I had a little black ink left, I went ahead and installed a new black ink cartridge. Cleared up the problem. You would think what does black ink have to so with color issues but black is used in the color process. Maybe someone with more knowledge on color balancing may be able to answer that. Also, sometimes it may take several cleanings of the heads to clear them. It also depends on how old the printer is and how often it's used. So these are educated guesses but as I originally indicated my issue was due to black ink that either was old to begin with or had been in long enough to start causing issues.
I hope this helps.

Refilled ink cartrige still showing empty is their any way to reset printer


Regarding your HP Officjet Pro 8600 printer and refilled HP 950/951 ink cartridges and the "low ink" messages. Depending on your ink refiller (or if you did it yourself?), a replacement chip may or may not have been installed with the recently refilled cartridge(s). Refer to picture on our support site to first determine which type of cartridge configuration you have, then refer to the applicable section to address the current cartridge error(s) or printer issues.
http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1999

NOTE: Costco USA's Ink Refill service now 'chips' all refilled ink cartridges which fully restores all functions to that of a regular HP (OEM) ink cartridge and customer experience. For USA ink refill store locations and details on ink refill pricing:

Costco USA Ink Refill Service (all 453+ stores): http://www.costcoinkjetrefill.com

Fry's Electronics Ink Refill Service (all 34 stores): http://www.frys.com/ads/page51

Micro Center Ink Refill Service: http://www.microcenter.com/site/content/refill-service.aspx


Refer to Section A if your refiller attached a new replacement chip (green in color) onto the cartridge. Refer to Section B if only the original HP chip is attached.

----

CAUTION: Be advised, the use of compatible/clone cartridges (i.e. sold thru the internet from China) are known to be problematic and may cause printer errors and/or permanent PRINTHEAD failures (due to incompatible ink formulations). We do NOT suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges.....refilling of original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested! HP original/genuine ink cartridges can be identified by the visible HP logo on the front label of the cartridge.

HP 8600 makes clicking noise takes long time to start printing


Solved!

Found a misfed page jammed inside the printer on far
right side ( by the ink service station) - after removing the
"hidden" wad, the printer no longer makes "clicking" sounds
and prints right away!
