Question about HP OfficeJet D135 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Wont print installed new cartridges. It has sat for a year or so. Before I stopped using it, I had replaced the heads. I tried to print a test page and it came out with just a very faint print in blue. I ran it through a couple times hoping that would help but nothing still. I opened it up and the heads are wet so the ink is getting to the heads, just not any further

    I have just installed two new cartridges on my hp office jet d135 and the printer still will not print. I cleaned the heads it said to replace heads. Where do you get the heads and how do you replace the heads?

I use a clear silicone tube to carefully prime the carts by sucking a dab of ink out of the tiny print holes before installation. I am careful to have a tight seal at the holes to prevent getting too much ink and possibly getting it in my mouth.

Manteinance program run automatically every time i try to print something


Its not maintenance programme, its print head alignment page.Once print heads are aligned successfully, you wont get this page.
Reason: One or more print head nozzles are not firing/blocked/dried up the align page will not prints properly to read result printer unable to align P.heads. You can observe the print quality, based on that replace/clean the particular print head(s) and check. Verify that each line it will read & marked as a "right tick". If its marks like "X" ensure that align page not successful.
If you are confused better replace all(four) print heads, to get out of this issue peacefully.But ensure that before replacing the print heads,all cartridge ink level should be more then 50%.

Installed a new black cartridge and it prints a blank page...even on test alignment.


Hi, Worn out print heads,causing the problem they needs to be replaced. Compare the cost of the new heads to the price of a new printer ,then make you decision.
Why not try a black & white laser printer for years of trouble free service.

Printer sat a year without ink cartidges, now wont print


Leaving inkjet printers alone for a long time generally results in the print heads getting clogged. Try cleaning them by following the steps on this page. If this does not work, you may need to replace them.

Good luck! :)

Epson CX 4300 printing problem


This can happen to cartridges with attached print heads. All cartridges are weighed and tested before leaving the factory so lack of ink isn't the problem. It usually has to do with the print head of the cartridge not having any ink to feed it. This happens because cartridges are kept flat or upside down for weeks or months before being used and the ink settles away from the print head. The easiest remedy is to open the box and stand the cartridge upright for a few minutes before using. Then get a damp paper towel, fold it into quarters and sit the cartridge print head down onto it. Hold the cartridge down to the damp paper towel for three minutes. This will help pull the ink out of the print heads, priming them and getting them ready to print. Finally, install the cartridge into your printer and print a few test pages.

Printer prints color, but not black even with new cartridge


First thing to do is a head clean then do a test print. Do you see any of the black lines?
If not, don't do a deep clean as this uses up too much ink. Remove the ink cartridges and then remove the print head unit.
Run the print head under a hot tap for a few minutes until all the run off is clear. Take it outside if you can and shake it dry vigourously. You can use paper towel if you like but try not to wipe across the nozzles. Make sue the contacts are all dry and refit it to the printer. reinstall the ink cartridges and print a few test pages - the first couple may well be wasted but then it should start to print properly.
Is the black still missing? If it is do another head clean and another test print. Any improvement? If you start to see some black do some more head clean routines and it may well come back to normal. If on the other hand you see no trace of black at all, it could be that the print head is worn out and needs replacing.
This printer is now of an age where the print head may well be failing. Mine had to be replaced last year as one of the colours stopped printing.
The head is not exactly cheap - but it's cheaper than buying a new A3 printer.

Will not print text only images


OK - here is all the help I can give to someone who won't respond to questions.

Are you confident the new cartridge is full and in-date? Can you confirm that the old cartridge was not removed until immediately before the new cartridge was installed. Did you remove the yellow tape from the new cartridge before you installed it? Was the black cartridge change properly completed such that an ink charging cycle occurred.

If you have already done lots of head cleans with no result, and you're sure you have a good ink cartridge properly installed, then you can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then try a head clean again. If still nothing, report back

Won't print black


# 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.

Canon i560 won't print black text anymore


I have now found the solution elsewhere in the internet: black text only prints on the Canon i560 if selct "normal paper", but not,for instance, if you have "professional photo-paper" selected.

Printer won't print


I have had a similar problem to this: I have had a BJC 80 for nearly 5 years and carried it around with my laptop using Win 98 and a par - par cable. It worked beautifully and successfully - so much so that when i saw a number of ink tanks going at very cheap volume prices in PC World i picked up a lot of them. Changing to an XP meant that i had to keep on using the par to par cable via a docking station but prevented my use of it with my new laptop - so when i brought it out of retirement it gave the blank printing problems yoiu described. By checking some error messages that it expected a black cartridge (which is what was installed) i found that inthe setup the software indicated it defaulted to colour cartridges. By changing this on the computer, it still printed blank pages but by changing the cartridge to colour it sprang into life when the set up asked for colour. I tried 2 other print heads which i had (3-4 years old) but still blank paper when printing to a black cartridge. I am now awaiting a new black print head carrier to see if it makes a difference. When trying with my laptop using XP and a par - usb cable it does not work at all. I have removed the sware driver for the Canon 80 and manually installed the one for the Canon 85 but no luck in printing to par - usb at this time
