Run the cleaning tool before you print a test page.

SOURCE: HP Officejet Pro L7780 sucking out ink of new ink cartridge

Is this a refillable cartridge you're using or a genuine HP OEM...

If it's a CIS, refillable or some kind of cartridge which is not made by HP then chances are the ink nozzle has failed and allowed the yellow ink to leak everywhere...

There are a lot of problems with these 3rd party cartridges and I would never recommend using anything other than a refilled HP cartridge or a genuine one.

Hope that helps.

How are you connecting to the printer (over the network or a direct USB connection)? If you are using a USB connection, try a new cable or plugging into a different USB port. If you use a USB hub, try a direct connection.

If you are using a network connection, check if your firewall is blocking the connection. Also check that the router (or switch) didn't dropped the network connection and didn't re-synch with the printer (or worse changed the IP address of the printer).

I hope this helps.

Testimonial: "I performed all of the diagnostic tests. Ther black ink still does not appear on any copies. I should say it is a very faint grey and it fades to nothing when printing a full page letter. I need to find whether the ink flow from the cartgridge to the print head is clogged and how to flush it. The printer is less than 6 months old, but was not used for over 2 months."

I have my HP Officejet 8500 connected by cable it starts printing then stops for a while then completes. can you help?


These units have two areas for ink, the normal cartridges and what they call print heads.
As you print ink is sent to the print heads, the pause is more than likely this operation.

Depending on how long you have had the printer the print heads may need to be replaced, however the printer will tell you if they need to be changed.

Hope this helps!

I have an HP Officejet Pro 8500 all in one printer. My magenta doesn't print. I can't print anything with red/pink in it. Can you help?


Try another cartridge first, making sure it is located properly in its seating and is the right spec.

You may not know, 8500 non wireless cartrigdes do not work in wireless A909.

Are you talking about replacing the cartridge at the left side front cartridge compartment or the printer heads under the scanner lid?

HP officejet pro 8500 ink cartridge problem


Changing a printer cartridge is not complex but improper handling of the parts may damage the printer and the cartridge. If the user notices that while printing the ink comes out dry or faded, it may be time to change the ink or the toner. The user will know if it is time to change the toner because instead of a sharp image, one will get a faded image. It is time to change the ink cartridge when the printing comes out spotty or colors are used to replace others —for instance, blue for black or yellow for red. Remember, faded images signal the need to change the toner; spotty printing signals the need to change the ink cartridge get more help for change cartridge .
Hope this helps you.

Ink smears on photo prints- in never dries. This is a new problem,


HP ink is water soluble. It comes off or smears onto a damp finger. So now I have an issue with HP.
