Question about HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Hp officejet pro blank pages with full ink cartridges.

Printer was printing fine for a couple of pages but then it looked as though the blank ink was low so I replaced it. Now, the printer is printing blank pages whether I send a document from my computer, scan it, or copy it. I've cleaned the printhead, checked the ink supply levels, and restarted the printer. I'm at a loss of how to proceed. It is only the black ink that is not printing.

Try reinstalling all of the printer software. If that does not do it then something is wrong with the printhead itself, specifically the area that controls the flow and metering of the black ink.

SOURCE: officejet d135 - "Supply Expired" error message

HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.

The color cartridges have all been replaced in the HP Officejet Pro K850 now all the pages are printing blank?


Try re-seating the ink cartridges and printing a test page. Those were new HP cartridges, right? Not some garbage from a ink cartridge refiller off ebay?

OfficeJet Pro K5400...ink cartridge


Er, NO.
The answer to the above question is clearly misleading.
If you consult the documentation for your HP K5400, which can also be found online, you will find that the printer cartridge lights also blink when the print heads require replacing.
If you have replaced the cartridge and the light still flashes, this is the most common solution. Replace the print heads.
Unfortunately because the printer is badly designed, there is no way of indicating this, and you will have troubles if you attempt to get the HP Toolbox or any other diagnostic tools working.
Good luck!

My printer does the same thing. I changed the blank ink yesterday (the printer shows the black ink was low) however after trying and trying and not being able to complete the alignment I decided to change the color ink as well.
It worked. Printer works fine now. Sometimes the ink dries up and you have to change it even though you know it should last longer.
Give it a try and let me know.

Can we print with other three Color ink cartridges when Black Ink cartridge is emptied?


hi,

as u have ran out of ink you cant print anymore... you have to replace a new ink cartridge.... this is because when u print something, the colors will get mixed to print the exact color.... even if u are printing only in black, some other colors wil get mixed to produce the black color on the paper... so u need to change the ink cartridge.... u cannot run with a blank filled ink cartridge.... and the selection of your printer is very good...

thanks and regards
agnel
