Does hp cartridge go on the left or right?


Hi Lisa here to help. To better assist you I would need to know which printer you have. If you open the print cartridge access door and look inside, you should see an indicator sticker that helps you too identify where the cartridge(s) go.

You can use the following link to identify your printer, then use the HP site to locate you user manual:

I hope this helps.

How do I clean the printer head on ly HP J5780 all in one


Hello thanks for using Fixya
In
HP Officejet J5780 All-In-One InkJet Printer cleaning the cartridge is not difficult, but it is important to use the appropriate technique. The things you need is "Cotton swabs" & "Distilled water"
Now follow this procedure
  • Open the front door of the printer, located below the scanner lid, by swinging it down. The print cartridges will move to a position where they can be accessed
  • Unplug the printer to prevent the cartridge dock from moving away from the center of the printer. Press an ink cartridge down until you feel a "click" then pull it out of the dock.
  • Dip a cotton swab in distilled water and use it to clean any built-up ink from the metal contacts on the ink cartridge and from the area around the ink nozzle. Avoid touching the nozzle itself, which is located in the center of the bottom of the cartridge. Discard the cotton swab if it becomes dirty, and use another to continue cleaning. Keep cleaning until the ink cartridge is no longer dirty, then set the ink cartridge aside.
  • Remove the second ink cartridge and repeat the cleaning process. Set both cartridges aside until they are completely dry
  • Replace an ink cartridge by holding it slightly below the dock, then pushing it up and in until it snaps into place. Do the same with the second cartridge. The black cartridge is inserted into the right slot on the dock, while the color cartridge is inserted into the left slot.
  • Close the front door of the printer, plug the printer back in, and turn it on.

Why stil show empty after installation of refilled ink cartridge


Hi there,

As you were using a refilled ink cartridge, it needs to be reset. When you refill your cartridge, it will read as low or empty when you try to print with the cartridge.

There was a embedded serial number in the contact strip located on the back of the cartridge and your printer remembers that serial number and gives the message of low or out of ink. The internal memory is located in the printers firmware and is not in the software. It will remember the previous two cartridges ink level.

On this matter I need the exact model of your HP printer so I can assist you more further on this.

Let me know from you again here soon. Just leave a message and I will attend you ASAP.

Thank you for using fixya.

Where do i replace the the ink cartridge on a 3700dn printer


Although I can't find the specifics on your model, most HP allow access to the ink cartridges by lifting the front cover. The cartridges then move from their parked location. Note: the printer must be on when you do this. Perhaps you provided the wrong model number, here's a link to HP Support

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bpa00226&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=304445&rule=42852&lang=en HP has indications that the lubricant on the printer carriage assembly tabs and the flex circuit contacts on the print cartridge can collect debris (fibers and dust), which may cause poor output. The lubricant is used to ensure that the interaction between the pen and the carriage assembly does not cause tears in the flex circuit. Refer to the following instructions to solve this issue. Cleaning the Inkjet cartridges can improve the quality of printing. If the printed page is missing lines or dots, or if it contains ink streaks, perform Procedure 1 in this section. If problems persist after performing Procedure 1, perform Procedure 2. NOTE: Use plain paper for these maintenance activities rather than more expensive specialty papers. Procedure 1: Cleaning the cartridge electrical contacts 1. Turn on the printer. 2. Open the top cover. The cartridges should move to the center of the printer. 3. Unplug the printer?s power cord from the power outlet. WARNING: Keep new and used cartridges out of the reach of children. 4. Remove the color cartridge. 5. Clean the electrical contacts (see Figure 1). Figure 1: Cleaning the cartridge electrical contacts A- Use a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth. B- Locate the copper-colored circuitry strip on the back of the cartridge. C- Wipe the coppers strip with the dry cloth. Use an upward motion, from the nozzle end to the top of the cartridge. CAUTION: Do not wipe the nozzle plate on the bottom of the cartridge. Wiping the nozzle plate can damage the cartridge (Figure 2). Figure 2: Do not wipe the nozzle plate 6. Remove the black cartridge. With a clean part of the cloth, repeat Step 5 with the black ink cartridge. Cleaning the electrical contacts inside the carriage assembly 1. Look for fibers or other contaminants on the electrical contacts inside the carriage assembly. The contacts in the printer can be damaged if too much pressure is applied during the wiping process. If necessary, the contacts may be cleaned by wiping them very gently with a dry, lint-free cloth (see Figure 3). Try to gently remove any visible debris within the carriage. WARNING: Make sure the printer power is turned off before cleaning inside of the printer. Figure 3: Cleaning the contacts inside the printer 2. Reinsert both cartridges. On models with cradle latches, close the cradle latch over the top of the cartridges. 3. Close the top cover. 4. Plug the power cord into the power outlet. 5. Print a test page. If the problem persists, go to Procedure 2. Procedure 2: Aligning and cleaning the cartridges Use the HP Deskjet Toolbox or Printer Assistant utility on the desktop (the utility name will depend on which HP Deskjet model is installed on the computer). NOTE: HP Deskjet Toolbox or Printer Assistant is for Windows users. HP Deskjet Toolbox: To align the cartridges from the HP Deskjet toolbox: 1. Open the HP Deskjet toolbox. The toolbox is located on your desktop in Microsoft ®) Windows XP, Me, 2000, 98, 95, and NT 4.0. In Windows 3.1x, the toolbox is located in the program group for the printer. 2. Select the Printer Services tab in the toolbox. 3. Select Cartridge Alignment and follow the steps on the screen. 4. After the alignment process is completed, perform a Cartridge Cleaning from the toolbox. 1. Double-click the HP Deskjet Toolbox shortcut (or icon) on the desktop. 2. Click the Printer Services tab. 3. Click Clean the Print Cartridges. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen HP Printer Assistant: To align the cartridges from the Printer Assistant: 1. Launch the Printer Assistant by clicking the Printer Assistant icon located on the desktop 2. Select tools and updates. 3. Go to printer maintenance. 4. Select calibrate printer. 5. Click calibrate and follow the onscreen instructions. Further instructions on calibrating the printer cartridges using the Printer Assistant can be found on document npd09616 - HP DJ 3320,3325 and 3420 series printers - how to calibrate the print cartridges After the alignment process is completed, perform a Cartridge Cleaning from Printer Assistant. 1. Select tools and updates. 2. Go to printer maintenance 3. Select clean cartridges. 4. Click clean and follow the onscreen instructions. If the problem persists, the cartridge should be replaced. If the cartridge still exhibits banding even after cleaning and priming actions in the HP Deskjet Toolbox are complete, the cartridge may need to be replaced. Verify the end for warranty date on the supply before returning it to the reseller. Typically, banding problems are most pronounced in images produced on plain paper in Normal mode. In many cases, simply changing to Best mode will alleviate the problem and produce satisfactory output. If switching modes does not result in acceptable performance, try using the cleaning steps described above. Internal test from the printer Running an internal test from the printer can perform a clean test. See document titled HP Deskjet Printers - How To Print Internal Tests for instructions on how to run internal tests. If the problem persists, replace the cartridge. Let me know if that helps. Good Luck, Tim
