Question about HP Deskjet D4160 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

I cannot print.....I only see a blank sheet of paper afterwards..

My hp deskjet d4160 series cannot print. I don't know why but it cannot estimate the ink levels. Also, I can only print black and white, the tri-color doesn't work. I've been experiencing this for a long time. Still, I cannot print until now. Sometimes, It just prints about 2-3 inches of pictures or documents. Please help me. I need it for my projects....

    I just recieved a HP Deskjet D4160 for free. The guy that gave it to me said he never used it. The ink cartridges were already installed inside the printer. I see that the box it came in has a shipping date of 8/9/2006 After seting it up I I tried to print a bunch of things and the words are very light and hard to read and after many times of printing the words won't get any darker. After time does the ink dry up? The ink status tells me that the cartridges are full.

How do I check ink levels on my HP deskjet D4160 Printer


When your printer was installed, it came with a CD with a complete software package for your printer to report (ink levels/diagnostics/etc) to the computer. If it was installed in Windows 7 (and below) it would be found at "Start" (button) > "HP" > Deskjet D4160 > Deskjet D4160. In Windows 8 look for HP. Once you've opened the application it will query the printer for its status. One of the icons will show the "Estimated Ink Levels".

If you can't find the software installed or the CD you can find it at HP's (US-English) support page for your D4160 is at the link below. Persons from other countries you can find their language at HP.com/support. There you can find everything you need.

Ink Jet Notes:
·Printers can be set to "economy" (default or individual job) to save ink if high quality is not an issue.
·Follow the user's manual or print using all cartridges at least monthly to insure the cartridge jets do not get fouled with dried up ink. Once fouled its toast. I've never been able to clean one.
·New printers come with minimal ink in the cartridges.
·"XL" (high volume) versions of your printers ink cartridge is cost effective if you print frequently.

Our Deskjet D4160 had a jam and the paper was pulled out. the paper feed button is blinking and does nothing when we push it. We have restarted the computer, unplugged the printer. What can we do to get it...


hi

1. 1
Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge to fade away before putting your hands or metal tools inside the chassis.
2. Step 2
Pin down the exact location of the jam. The three hot spots for a jam are the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and the print carriage, or between the print carriage and the output tray.
3. Step 3
Take off the front paper tray if the sheet got stuck while it was still in the front area of the printer. If the sheet jammed here, you should be able to see most of the paper.
4. Step 4
Pull on the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a chunk of it deeper in the machine.
5. Step 5
Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed tray area and the print carriage of the all-in-one printer. Carefully remove the jammed paper from the machine.
6. Step 6
Use the carriage access door to reach a jam further inside the all-in-one printer. You may need to move the print carriage out of your way to clear the jam.
7. Step 7
Return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

1. Open the printer Toolbox.

Note If the print cartridges were used before being installed in the printer, the
estimated ink levels will not appear on the Estimated Ink Level tab.
The Estimated Ink Level tab also contains print cartridge ordering information. To view

Hi HP deskjet d4160...runs the paper but prints either 1 line or nothing


It may need a new ink cartridge or the flat cable from the printer head is broken.

HP Deskjet 5150 print is too small


Printers try to fit web pages on a single sheet of paper. If you configure the printer, in the print dialog, not to shrink images and text to fit the paper, it will print on multiple sheets of paper, but the correct size for the images and text.

In a Word document, it depends on what font size you have selected. Most people would rather have the web page print on a single sheet, with smaller images and text than were on the monitor; than tape together multiple sheets for 100% size printout.
