Black ink cartridge is not registering as being in machine after changing


1.The carriage contacts are worn out and the contacts need to be replaced.
2.The Trailing cable is worn out and needs to be replaced.
It is highly recommend that you replace this both at the same time.
These are the two likely causes of the cartridge problems.
You can do it your self by following the service instructions at http://www.feedroller.com/store/Service%20Manual/DESIGNJET%20700,%20750C,%20750CT,%20755CM%20Service%20Manual.pdf
and you can get parts at http://www.donparts.com/products/53-DJ-700-750C-755CM/ for the plotter.

Film + error lights flash. I have replaced the ink



This indicates that either the black print cartridge is faulty, misplaced or missing. Try inserting a different black cartridge. Also firmly press the large green plunger fully down once, and then release it. The plunger should return to its original position. Then reset the printer and try printing again. If the problem persists try using a new black cartridge and primeit before use with the power on.

Designjet 500 stops printing in the middle of print job


To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Print cartridge missing


Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier.

Next, try this printer self-test by following the steps given below:

1. Please turn OFF the printer.
2. Press and hold the "Color copy" button.
3. Now, turn ON the printer.
4. Once you see "0" on the display, release the "Color copy" button.
5. Press the Up arrow button until "2"appears on the display.
6. Press the "Black copy" button to start the self test. Once the page has printed, the printer will stop printing.

The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with the color cartridge installed by itself. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let me know.


If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, let us know. This includes any print quality issues, we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.

If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault.

How can i print in just black ink


Interestingly enough the color cartridges are used for printing black on most printers. It helps make the black, um... well, blacker.

You can look on HP's website and see if they have a method of setting the print driver to only use the black ink.

Our hp designjet 110plus is not printing black though the indicator shows we have black ink, what seems to be the problem? -Leh


Hi,
Check whether the black cartridge is dry and whether it is releasing the ink properly.  This you can check by rubbing the paper on the place where the flows.
Else check with a new cartridge.  Even if the problem continues in the printer preferrence you have an option of service.  click on it and the problem will be fixed......!

Plotter only printing in Cyan


Check your black cartridge. Do the pump the cartridge thing with the plunger on the left of the plotter. Check all the electrical connectors on the cariage and the cartridge - clean with water -or wd40 if you are very careful and check that all the contacts, about 40 of them are clean and undamaged on each cartridge. Replace with known working cartridges. run a color test as specified in the manual -- hp has relased the manual for this printer as they no longer service this unit.
