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