SOURCE: Replaced HP 88 Printheads, still receive same

You either got a defective printhead or you are using generic inks, HP got real smart and added chemicals to their ink, if the printer doesn't see the right chemical makeup it will give that error and you need to flush the printhead and the pump and hoses with HP ink or the error will stay.

SOURCE: HP Officejet Pro K550 - Printhead Error Message on

I have the same problem. I replaced both printhead cartidges. The MC light stopped blinking, but the KY light kept blinking. I thought it was a faulty new KY ink cartridge. So I returned that cartridge and got a new one. Still the same issue. I called hp and they said the print head is bad now and all they focused on was trying to sell me a new printer. UG! I also heard wiping off the printhead with a dry cloth may help. Did you get yours to wokr?

HP Photosmart B210a error message


Simple. Remove the ink and printhead. You can remove printhead by pulling gray latch up and sliding printhead up and out. Clean printhead gunk off using warm running water. Remove any ink gunk on the right side of printer if you see any. Turn printer off and on. See if problem went away. If it did, try putting the cleaned printhead inside printer again. If problem comes back, seems like the issue is with a bad printhead. Below are video instructions on cleaning head manually. The printheads are not same. B210 printhead is not the same with HP 6500, but instructions are same.

Blue screen: error code 0081.After i get a white screen saying shut down and fire back up printer. tried that and a full reset, still not working.What is the problem


Got the same error. It usually is from the printheads. It first gave me the message that the YB printhead has failed and needs to be replaced. I think this printer has some built-in software that says the print-head needs to die a horrible death after a definite period of time, since my printheads were perfect, printed like new. And when the printer gets to the date it just makes the head die. Suggestions is to replace the printhead. I don't think there is any other way. Or buy a new printer. Preferably not HP, maybe a Brother.

  • If the error message disappears, the issue is resolved and you do not need to troubleshoot further.

Solution two: Remove, clean, and reinstall the printhead


If the previous solutions did not resolve the problem, the printhead might be installed incorrectly, or there might be ink or debris on the printhead electrical contacts. Follow these steps to check and clean the printhead.



Step one: Remove the printhead



  1. Press the Power button ( ) to turn on the product.



  2. Open the cartridge access door.


  3. To remove each cartridge, press the tab on the front of the cartridge to release it and remove it from the slot.


    Figure 1: Remove the cartridge




    NOTE: Do not leave the cartridges outside the product longer than 30 minutes. Doing so can result in damage to both the product and the cartridges.



  4. Lift the latch handle on the carriage until it stops.


    Figure 2: Lift the latch handle



  5. Lift the printhead straight up to remove it.


    Figure 3: Remove the printhead



Step two: Clean the printhead
There are three areas of the printhead that need to be cleaned: the plastic ramps on both sides of the ink nozzles, the edge between the ink nozzles and the electrical contacts, and the electrical contacts. Follow these steps to clean the printhead.



Figure 4: Three areas to clean


1 - Plastic ramp on the side of the ink nozzles

2 - The edge between the ink nozzles and the electrical contacts

3 - The electrical contacts



CAUTION:Do not touch the ink nozzles. Do not touch the electrical contacts with your finger. Use only cleaning materials to touch the electrical contact areas.
Figure 5: Do not touch the electrical contacts





  1. Gather the following cleaning materials:





    • Several clean, lint-free cloths or papers. Coffee filters and glass-cleaning cloths work well.






  2. Distilled or bottled water. Do not use tap water, because it can contain contaminants that can damage the printhead.




  • Lightly dampen a clean, lint-free cloth.


  • Use the damp cloth to wipe the electrical contacts from the bottom to the top. Do not go past the edge between the electrical contacts and the ink nozzles. Repeat this motion until no ink remains on the electrical contacts.


    Figure 6: Clean the electrical contacts



  • Use a fresh, lightly dampened, lint-free cloth to wipe any accumulated ink and debris from the edge between the ink nozzles and the electrical contacts.


    Figure 7: Clean the edge between the ink nozzles and the electrical contacts



  • Use a fresh, lightly dampened, lint-free cloth to wipe the plastic ramps on both sides of the ink nozzles. Wipe away from the nozzles only.


    Figure 8: Clean the ramps



  • Dry the previously cleaned areas with a clean, dry, lint-free cloth before proceeding to the next step.


  • Lightly dampen a fresh, clean, lint-free cloth with bottled or distilled water.


  • Clean the electrical contacts inside the product by wiping them from top to bottom. Repeat this motion until no ink remains on the electrical contacts.


    Figure 9: Clean the electrical contacts inside the product



  • Dry the area with a clean, dry, lint-free cloth.



  • Step three: Reinstall the printhead



    1. Raise the latch handle, and then reinsert the printhead.



      Figure 10: Insert the printhead



    2. Carefully lower the latch handle before reinserting the cartridges.



      NOTE:Leaving the latch handle raised can result in incorrectly seated cartridges and printing issues. The latch must remain down to install the cartridges correctly.



      Figure 11: Lower the latch handle



    3. Using the colored shaped icons for help, slide the cartridges into their appropriate slots until they snap firmly into place in the slot.







      Figure 12: Slide the cartridge into the slot



      Figure 13: Snap the cartridge into place


  • Close the cartridge access door.







    • If the error message disappears, the issue is resolved and you do not need to troubleshoot further.




    • If the error message persists, continue to the next solution.





    Solution three: Reset the product








    1. Press the Power button ( ) to turn on the product.



    2. With the product turned on , disconnect the power cord from the rear of the product.


    3. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.


    4. Wait at least 15 seconds.


    5. Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.


    6. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the product.


    7. If the product does not turn on by itself, press the Power button ( ) to turn it on.

    Just Purchased A Hp Office Jet Pro 8500A. The printer says Pump Motor Stalled. What to do ?


    Hi,

    You mentioned this is brand new printer purchased and gives "Pump motor Stalled" Error. Since this is new unit, my suggestion would be to contact HP Tech support regarding this issue as your printer is In-warranty and if needed, the printer will be replaced without any cost.

    OR,

    If you have purchased the printer from a store like bestbuy, Costso, Walmart etc. you can return the printer to them and get another one exchanged ( Check their return policy )

    HP Contact # - 1800-474-6836

    Before you contact HP or return the printer to store, you can try few things to check if it works as "Pump Motor Stalled" generally is Hardware Issue.

    Open the Printer front access door.
    Remove the Cartridges and Printheads ( Printhead is that holds the cartridges, loosen the latch to remove it )
    Clean the contacts ( Electrical or Golden contacts ) using lint free cloth. ( Cloth damped with few drops of water, squeezed properly )
    Put the Printhead and Cartridges back and Turn off the printer and turn on.

    If should not display the error. If it does, it is your choice whether to take the printer to store and get exchanged or contact HP.


    Regards,
    Ron
