SOURCE: Printhead alignment fails

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.


Hope this help. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Blue ink won't print


The cyan print head nozzles maybe blocked.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Hp officejet 6500 e709n print quality poor even after replacing print head


For severe print quality/missing color issues there could be an air bubble/air gaps in the printer ink lines or a portion of the PRINTHEAD is dry, so you should first perform a Clean PrintHead procedure from your printer control panel.
NOTE: If one or more the colors were previously dry fired during printing (i.e. if you continued printing using only a few colors to one, air may have been accidently ingested into the ink lines between the cartridge(s) and PRINTHEAD. To recover from this problem, you may have to run the Clean Printhead procedure 2-3 times.
If a problem persists then it is suggested to review the steps outlined on the following HP 920 support pages, including printhead removal/printer cleaning and service station cleaning. It is suggested you refer to printer manufacturer instructions first as the Inkjet411 procedures are provided for general guidance purposes only. A dirty service station can cause poor image quality and/or ink cross-contamination between different colors:
http://inkjet411.retailinkjet.com/?page_id=1495
If the problem still cannot be corrected, then the PRINTHEAD may be dry and may need to be flushed (i.e. with warm water as it could have dried out, but this is a function of how much you print). Remove and soak in hot water for 5 minutes...thoroughly dry printhead prior to re-installing. Retest.
For more information please visit:
http://inkjet411.retailinkjet.com/?page_id=856
Worst case scenario the PRINTHEAD may simply be electrically damaged or at end-of-life (typically fails between 3,000 and 5,000 printed pages) and may require replacement, usually accompanied by error messages like Incompatible Printhead or Ink Delivery/System Failure. NOTE: The PRINTHEAD will eventually fail in time. For more information on the how the PRINTHEAD works, watch the video here: http://inkjet411.retailinkjet.com/?page_id=1983
To verify Printhead performance, run the Tap 41 diagnostic test, (Pen Status: Pen OK).....for printer model instructions please visit:

HP 6940 won't print black-new cartridge installed-prints color but no black


In all likelihood your print head has become clogged at the black ink outlet. Be aware that printheads can BURN OUT if you keep trying to print and there's insufficient ink reaching the printhead. The ink flow is relied upon to prevent overheating of the tiny resistors at the printhead. Best bet is to remove the cartridges from the printhead and then remove the printhead and try to clean it in warm water. You will find many youtube videos on suggestions for cleaning the printheads on HP printers. Do a google search for your model. If all else fails you can order replacement printheads for the part that has failed. They are not cheap so price compare. Oftentimes they will cost nearly as much as a new printer!

Saying printhead missing or damaged, new printhead recently fitted, sometimes removing replacing has restrated working but not this time


Remove the Printhead,

Put them back in and follow the instructions on Printer screen

Magenta and cyan will not print on my hp officejet pro L7590 -- it started with a paper jam that was corrected - ever since then only the yellow and black will print on the paper -- printheads are good and...


Same thing happened to my printer hp L7590. Printed diagnostic, only black and yellow printed; diagnostic for printhead health Ky=good, MC= good. Only Hp products ever used. Uplugged, & discharged static, cleaned copper parts of printhead. Still no fix. On visual examination of floor of printhead compartment rectangular pad ( approx 1/4" by 1/2") is missing. I can only guess that during the paper jam, somehow the pad got caught up and went awol. Not sure what to do now.

Printhead replacement


I don't just change the printheads, go to utilities and recover printheads.
If all printheads are playing up, che3ck the magenta cleaner, if it's over full it can cause all printheads to fail, this info was taken from a page on the HP web page, but ?I can't remeber where.

OfficeJet 9130 all-in one


I updated the HP 9130 firmware and encountered the same problem. I turned off the printer, removed all the printheads and the cartridges, closed the printer cover and then turned on the printer again. After seeing an error message on the printer screen concerning the missing printheads, I opened the printer cover, replaced all of the missing printheads and the missing cartridges and then closed the cover. The printer then aligned printheads once as is expected after replacing the printhead and cartridges. Thereafter, it worked normally. I do not know why this procedure worked and if it will work in every case, but for now, it seems to have worked for me.
