Question about HP DesignJet 130NR InkJet Printer
Had a failure on light cyan.... replaced the cartridge and let it do its business and then says failure again when i turned it on today. Then when I looked in the print head compartment. The magenta box then flashed up to say it had failed too. I hadn't touched it. it just seems to decide which one is going to fail when it likes to. Any suggestions to why this printer keep doing this?

Some of print heads may be failed.First clean very well the contacts on the print heads and printer using piece of cotton and some alcohol.If not help look which color don't print and replace that print head.

The print heads are probably clogged :^(
Has the printer been unused for some time? Does the printer show that the cartridges are full?
Does the printer show any errors? It could be that he waste reservoir is full (or thinks it is full) I would suspect that it would report an error though.
If the printer was not used for a while, the ink could be dried on the print heads. Print heads are kind a like paint spray cans. You can try cleaning the print head nozzles with alcohol and or water. The best way to do this is to put a moist (you do not want liquid to drip into the system though) cloth or paper towel under the nozzles. Make sure the printer is unplugged though so any liquid does not fry the electronics. Make sure the printer is completely dry before plugging in again.
Hope this helps, Jim
