Question about HP OfficeJet 9130 All-In-One Thermal Printer

1 Answer

My hp officejet 9130 will not print in color.

I have run the internal maintence program and the colored cartriges were recently replaced and they are full. There was a period of time when the printer sat unused for a while; maybe several months.

The printer will print in black, however it does not duplicate colors when using the copier or printing from the computer

Try runing the printer test and see if colors print. If they don't your color cartridge is cloged. You can try to set the print head(copper strip on bottom of cartridge) on a damp paper towel for a while to try and unclog the head. You should see the colors on the towel. Dry head off and try again. Hp uses water base ink and it will dry up after setting for awhile. The printer knows it has ink in the cartridge, because it will try to print, so it has to be the print head.
The print head has two lines of holes or jet for each color and if some of them are cloged, it will look striped or missing colors.

I have a color printer hp office jet 7130 all in one and its only printing in cyan. is the printhead off? or broken can it be fixed and how much would it cost?


Go to paint create black,cyan,megenta & yellow images & print it, observe which colors are not printing,If back missed replace black cartrige, if any color missed out of remain three replace colour cartridge.There is no option to switch off the catridges & printer can recognise the faulty cartridge and it will show on displays.
You can order cartridges online.

My HP Officejet 6210 All-in-One keeps rejecting my color cartriges. I am willing to just print in Black, but it blocks all print jobs. Any ideas on how to by-pass the color cartrige block?


uninstall the software by going into add/remove programs. Then look at the color cartridge and make sure its an original HP cartridge and not one of the 3rd party type of color cartridges. Try to use originals if you can so you don't run into the printer rejecting them.

With the operating system clean of the software go thru the steps in this guide to make sure everything is being installed properly:

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00238458.pdf

This will make sure that the cartridges are installed and that the software is being reinstalled so nothing is corrupted.

If the printer is still blocking print jobs or rejecting cartridges then you know that its either a printhead problem or a main board issue, either way you would have to get the printer replaced.
