Won't power on

I haven't used my printer for about 6 months because I was out of ink. I put it in my office to use for the business and it won't power on. I have cleaned everything and made sure everything was connected. I don't know what to do and also I would like to know if the printer will power on without ink cartridges in.

I hope you did all these checks
1. Is there power at the wall socket.
2. Is the power cable good.
3. Is the wall switch on.
4. Did you switch the printer on.

If the power on light does not come on then it is an electrical fault, and repair is likely to cost more than a new printer. A possible cause is a faulty on off switch.

All Inkjet printers must be able to power up with no cartridges, as all new printers come without cartridges installed. Some retailers install ink cartridges at the time of sale.

If you store any inkjet printer with out parking the heads properly or no ink cartridge in place. the print head will dry out, 6 months is more than long enough to do this. If this is the case then replacement is your best option,

It is possible to clean blocked heads by dissolving the ink with water and blotting the heads. DO NOT RUB as this will damage the nozzles. Access is usually difficult and usually requires that printer be taken apart.

Check ink cartridge on right


Yes - if they are not used they will dry up and be unusable.
Unfortunate but you need to replace them.
For future ref - IF they will not be used in 4 - 6 months
pop them out and put scotch tape on the head where ink comes out
and that should keep them good for several months..
I have done that and close to a year later - was fine.
Hope this helps :)

Have 5400- needs new black ink. How do I get to the instructions on this


You can purchase cartridges online from www.lexmark.com. Lexmark cartridges are also available in some large office supply stores.
To replace a cartridge on your printer, please follow the steps below:

1. Make sure the printer is on.

2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-in-One is busy.

3. Remove your used cartridge.

4. Firmly insert your new cartridge.

5. Close the printer cover. Your printer will then ask you to align the cartridges.



Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't automatically move to its loading position even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Follow the steps below:


1. Unplug the printer from the power source.

2. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip that connects from the carrier assembly to the ink cartridge carrier and gently slide the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer.

3. Remove the used cartridges.

4. Load the new cartridges. Close the cover.

5. Plug the printer back to the power source.

Need to clean head on my printer, and can't figure out how. HP PSC 1315 All-In-One InkJet Printer It isn't printing well and has been in a cold cabin in the mountains for the past 8 months.


Just change the ink cartridges - the print heads are built into the cartridges on this printer. If it sat unused for 8 months, then probably some ink dried in the tiny holes and clogged them. While it might be possible to dissolve it with distilled water, I haven't had very good luck with that. It would be simpler to just put in new cartridges.

Has been setting 6 months , has new ink and paper


Ink jet printers are meant to be used regularly, at least once a week.
If it was used before you put it away for 6 months, the ink is dry on the jets.

First try the cleaning function. If you're lucky, after 2 or 3 tries it may work again, and the more you use it the better print quality will result.

Failing that, there are cleaning kits you can purchase.
They consist of a cleaning solution you can inject into a used-up cartridge.

Or better yet, you can take it to one of the places where they refill ink, and for a fee they'll get it going for you.

My printer won't print it sat for 6 months we put new ink in and it scans and goes through the actions but doesn't print ink


The problem with printers like Epson is that they cannoy stand without being used for that long. The print head that is largely responsible for print quality is built into the machine and the last ink that passed through 6 months ago is hardened inside. Dry several deep cleanings with nozzle checks inbetween. You may need to send it for manual print head cleaning with a printer technician.

Ink "banding" on hp laserjet 2600n


Viscosity of the ink is likely your problem. Sure the inks are not leaking at the same time, but that is likely because the different colors use different tints which can be slightly thicker or thinner. Many printer manufacturers (HP most notably) makes many patents on their ink, and not solely on the colors, but also the viscosity. The ink jets could slowly be leaking and might need to be replaced, finding these parts yourself might be easy, but replacing them is not.
I'm going to assume you've replaced the blue and suggest you remove the roller and clean it with glass cleaner. You may find it EXTREMELY difficult to remove the roller, so I would probably find a printer repair/ sales shop. Usually these places are not easy to find, so you'll probably want to find an office equipment sales business. These are the companies that usually sell the larger copier/fax/printers for large offices, or you could call HP and ask where a certified HP printer technician is in your area. I will tell you though, the cheaper ink may have just caught up to, having a copier technician repair this printer could cost quite a lot, but doing the job yourself, could be disastrous. The amount of small screws, easy to break plastic tabs, and interesting clips, etc make the job nearly impossible for a novice.
Good luck -Skyler

Massage unsupport ink on lexmark X4270


Sadly, not all inks are created equal, and even inks that are claimed "compatable" are not allways safe. My HP photo printer worked great for 2 years, then I put in a "will fit" from a name brand office supply store, the printer nozzles plugged on the second print, never to print correctly again. My replacement printer is a Kodak 5300 all in one, chosen for low ink costs/ hi-output, and I get photo-lab quality, borderless prints day after day. (I'm a photographer/artist) I have run 6 color and 5 blacks for thousands of graphics, in a period of 2 months getting ready for a showing, with maybe 1 or 2 misprints.
