Question about HP DeskJet 5150 InkJet Printer
HP 5900 inkjet. Just replaced both cartridges. Was printing beautifully - sharp and color saturdated - prior to change. Message said both cartridges installed successfully, but print is now definately not as good as before. Using HP cartridges, not refills. any suggestions?
You probly have a cloged cartridge. Most of HP's cartridges are water based ink. Take the cartridge that is not printing good, color or b/w, set the copper colored end, which is the print head on a dry paper towel. You should be able to see all colors as a solid line, or the black will show 2 solid black lines. The one that is not correct, take a paper towel and get it damp, and set the print head on the damp towel, be sure to fold the towel or it will stain the table you set it on. and let it set for a few minutes. Try the dry towel again. You may have to do this several times..You also should have software to prime your cartridages. After cleaning, try to prime the cartridge.

your computer screen. You can also check the ink levels by using the software
installed with the HP All-in-One.
When you receive a low-ink warning message, make sure you have a replacement
print cartridge available. You should also replace the print cartridges when you see
faded text or if you experience print quality issues related to the print cartridges.
