Sometimes it's just a case of the printer throwing a wobbly...

Try turning the printer off, leaving it for a couple of minutes and then turning it back on again.
(Sometimes it locks up in "shutting down" mode requiring you to pull the power lead, waiting 5 and then plugging back in).

If this doesn't resolve it and your printheads are in warranty I'd phone HP for warranty replacements.

SOURCE: Changing the printhead

FYI: The L7590 doesn't have any tape on either the cartridge or the printhead.

Right couple of things here...

1. The printheads in the L7590 are either K/Y (black/yellow) or C/M (cyan/magenta)... There's no single black printhead unless of course this is not an L7590 we're discussing here.

2. The cartridges ARE individual with K, Y M C (Black, Yellow, Magenta and Cyan).


It's likely that the printer has one of the following faults.

  • Chip contacts and/or chips on the cartridges are soiled and/or damaged. Try checking for ink on chips and contacts in the cartridge bay

  • The little white oval pump in the bottom of the cartridge bay has become disconnect or broken. This is used by the printer to pump ink into the printhead but it also detects pressure variations and has a logic circuit which declares low pressure as "no ink".

If the problem is the latter then you need to get the printer serviced and/or repaired at a service center.

If it's the former you should be able to fix it yourself.

If you're using non OEM (ie: not by HP) cartridges I'd recommend getting a new OEM/HP one to test before you go for a service as some cartridges are just poorly filled and/or designed.

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Officejet d135 says bad black printhead- Replace the pentagon --

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!

Try this one
Take out the inks and printhead
Leave the cartridge door open, then unplug the power cord from the back of the printer while the access door is open
Close the cartridge door once the cord is unplugged
Reconnect the powercord, turn on the printer, then your printer will look for your printhead "Printhead missing or not installed correctly..."
Then put everything back. make sure it will snap in to place. Then print a calibration page, then scan it. This is just over writing the error message.

2) Lift the printer access door, and wait for the carriage to move to a position where you can access it. The ink cartridges are located in the printhead.
3) Pinch the tab on the ink cartridge.
4) Lift the ink cartridge out of the printhead.
5) Remove the new ink cartridge from its bag.
IMPORTANT:To prevent the printhead from drying out, insert the ink cartridge into the printhead immediately.
6) Remove the protective cap from the cartridge.
7) Insert the ink cartridge into the printhead.
8) Press down on the ink cartridge tab until you hear a click.
9) Close the printer access door.

That completes changing the ink cartridges.

Alarm message says "cartridge jammed". Does that


What you see moving is the print carriage. The carriage moves the cartridge, adjacent to the printhead, back and forth.
Although the carriage is moving, the ink cartridge can not dispense ink because an obstruction is
blocking the path of the ink.
Remove the ink cartridges, inspect the cartridges as well as the cartridge holders for any foreign debris and reinstall.
If the alarm message continues, I suggest changing the ink cartridges.

Double check to make sure that you have seated the ink into the head correctly and that the printhead is locked in correctly. Sounds like the printhead isn't in properly and the printer can't read the inks as it normally does.

How do I remove printhead?


same as when you change ink tanks...
1.follow the same procedure you use to change ink tanks/cartridges to remove the current ink tanks
2.remove all ink tanks/cartridges
3.the printhead is what the ink tanks/cartridges sit in, the furthest half of the part the ink tanks/cartridges sit on is the removable part/printhead, it is loose so you can simply reach in and carefully pull it out.

Same as some other complaints at your site about this printer/aio


Your printer does indeed have cartridges...4 in fact, along with 2 printheads. 1 printhead is for Magenta/cyan. The other for Black/yellow.

You know where the printheads are. The ink cartridges are below them. There is a door that pulls down to expose all four.

Here is a link to HP Support for changing your ink cartridges: L7580 Ink Cartridge

Consider XL cartridges...they last much longer.

Also, for reference, here is a link to the User Guide for your printer: L7580 User Guide

It just wont work


Move the ink cartridge carriage (the printhead) to the middle of the printer like you're going to change cartridges.  Take out all the ink cartridges.  There should be two black springs on either side of the printhead.  Remove these and the printhead should pop out.  Clean the nozzels (the little parts that squirt out ink) and reassemble.

If this doesn't work, then you'll have to replace the printhead.
