Question about HP Photosmart C3180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I've printed less than 50 pages and now when I try to print, I only get blank sheets. Do the print cartridges need cleaned?
No, they need to be replaced.
Did you remove the plastic tape from the carts?

Tips for a great answer:
Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer
cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you
printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where
the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer
turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document
again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print
cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues
with your model:
From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks.
Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print
After printing the test page, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
