It sounds like you need to replace the cartridges. Most newer companies make their cartridges where they are not user servicable.

I have had this printer since late Aug, 2010 and it has never worked correctly. Printer keps telling me black ink cartridge is not in. I have to re click the black ink after every print. Not impressed.


clean the contacts with a clean cloth. I'm assuming that the cartridge is from the manufacturer of the printer if not, try to use the ink cartridge for that printer. Also make sure that the cartridge is securely placed in the bay and is not wiggling.

How to restore your inkjet printer so it prints just like new!


Inkjet printers all operate the same basic way. There are differences but the basics are the same for any inkjet devices. Eventually a buildup occurs enough that your printer doesn't print. Cleaning cycles use more and since inkjet ink is worth about $8000 a gallon, this is a expensive way to clean something.

So what can we do to clean this just a bit cheaper? We need to find a suitable solvent that will dissolve these deposits without harming the print head. And the one that works great and is dirt cheap is good old household white vinegar. Next we want to get some lint free (preferred but not critical) paper towels. And a clean clear table top to work. You may want to put down some newspaper. This isn't that messy to do but it can get the odd bit of dissolved ink on things.

Now we take the printer and remove the paper and the ink cartridges and set aside. The print head is a small stamp sized thing on the bottom of the cartridge holder. Take about 1/3 of a sheet of paper towel and wet it with vinegar. Next you want to get the wetted towel under the print head. It should fit as this is where the paper goes you print. The towel is a thicker but it is soft. move the print head back and forth over the towel. When the towel is covered with ink, change it and repeat. Keep repeating this until the towel comes clean. It will only take a few minutes. When the towel is clean then you are done. Replace the ink cartridges and paper and you are ready to print.

I believe my ink dried out in the holder bracket. I cleaned it with alcohol and replaced the -color and black ink cartridges with new, and can only get a littles ink smeared across the page on the first...


If ink dried out it's done. Recycle it and get new cartridge. If cartridge is more than 50 dollars don't buy it. Go to Walmart and you can by a brand new cannon printer with ink cartridge for $49.00

I have a HP officejest 6500 wireless 3-in-1 and when i'm trying to print a document in black ink, it sometimes prints in black and sometimes in yellow. what is wrong and how can i fix it?


Printer cartridges are very sensitive, especially the contact points. Reseat the cartridges, clean the contact point with a soft cloth, reinstall and perform test print again. Just make sure that there's still an ink in the cartridges...

I have a hp officejet 5510 that prints the first line and the next is light and than dark and than light again


Hi,
The problem could be caused due to blocked printer nozzles or bad print head. Try cleaning the ink nozzles first.
1 Press Setup.
2 Press 5, then press 1.
This selects Tools and then selects Clean Print Cartridge.
A page of patterns is printed. The print cartridges are cleaned. Recycle or
discard the page.
If copy or print quality still seem poor after you clean the print cartridges,
replace the print cartridge that is affected. For information on replacing
print cartridges, see replace the print cartridges.

How to clean LG W2284F-PF 22" Widescreen PC Monitor


I use TufStuf to clean mine and besides being non liquid (is a foam), it makes the surface anti-static, so dust cannot stick to it. Or you may try a LCD cleaner kit like this.

New Ink cartridges registering as empty ...


Is it an HP printer? We had the same problem at work with print cartridges purchased at Staples. They have a major quality control problem. Your new print cartridge may be empty or dried out (died on the shelf). It's my problem at work, as I have over 80 HP deskjets, and Purchasing still insists on buying the Staples cartridges rather than the HP.

Sometimes if you shake a print cartridge really hard it may correct the problem. However, I would buy or borrow a black HP print cartridge and try it out in your printer. Works almost every time on the job. Good luck.
