Question about HP Deskjet D4260 Printer

6 Answers

I cannot print with my HP color ink jet printer cp 1700. Initially there was a paper jam in the printhead area to the right of the printer. Now the printer just continues to run and states to close the latch of the print heads. This appears to be latched and secured. There is a ribbon that is visable inside when you open up the top and the carraige doesn't automatically go back to the original position to the right. What should I do?

    The motor on the printer is continuously running. There is a ribbon that runs through the printhead housing that is not attached anywhere.

Hi!

Check out for small pieces of paper stuck under the carriage. Also use a Q-tip and apply a drop of oil on to the crome rod on which the carriage rests

My printer shows a code#3527 and states a problem with the printhead..i show nothing wrong what is the error ?


This one pops up a lot when the printhead sensor gets dirty. I would pull the paper out, give the inside a good blast of canned air, pull the cartridges and then reload it like you're setting it up again the first time: paper, ink, test print. If you still get the error code try cleaning it again but on its side or back and check the print head belt and rail, too.

Black is not printing


Try this to unclog printhead.
take out cartridge, locate the hole where ink goes trough, put a can of compressed air and blow it.
put some paper under the printhead to catch ink.

Follow these steps to check the print settings for your print job.
  1. In the software program you are trying to print from, click File and then click Print . The Print dialog box opens.
  2. Select your product, and then click Properties . The printer Properties dialog box opens.
  3. Click the Printing shortcuts tab.
  4. Under Printing shortcuts , click the type of job you are trying to print.
  5. Review the following options, and then make any necessary changes.
    • Paper size : Make sure that the selected option matches your paper size.
    • Paper type : If one of the options matches your paper type exactly, select that option.
    • Print quality : If you are not satisfied with your printed page quality, or want more densely printed prints, increase the print quality. To print more quickly, or for lighter prints, decrease the print quality.
  6. Click the Features tab.
  7. Check the Print in Grayscale setting
    • If you are trying to print in color, select Color Options , and then make sure that Print in Grayscale is not selected.
    • If you are printing a black and white image, select Print in Grayscale to fix streaking in black areas.
  8. Click OK , and then click OK again to start the print job.
Make sure the printer is loaded with unused white paper.
Open HP Solution Center , then click Settings , then Printer Toolbox .
Select the Services tab.

Make sure the printer is loaded with unused white paper.
Open HP Solution Center , then click Settings , then Printer Toolbox .
Select the Services tab, then click A- Click Align Printheads or
B- Click Clean Printheads .
C- Click Calibrate Linefeed .

If, after repeated printhead cleaning, the Print Quality Diagnostic page shows white lines across the color blocks in Test Pattern 2 (but no white lines in the gray blocks in Test Pattern 3), one or both of the printheads will have to be replaced. The Print Quality Diagnostic page shows which printhead should be replaced.

My HP Office jet 6210


If the printer seems to be printing and ejects paper when a page seems finished, communication is happening, just no ink.
To see if it is an ink or printhead problem, take any Word document, highlight all text and change the font color. Then try printing it; I would try this with a few different colors to see if any part of the printhead is capable of producing visible material.

Well, here is the proper way of fixing or troubleshooting that paper jam error in your printer

Open the printer access door and remove both of the ink cartridge, then remove also the printhead, after that close the printer access door, without those parts. Then it will show a message in the printer screen, "Printhead is missing or has come loose" or "Printhead Not Detected" Install the printhead, just the printhead without the ink cartridges. After that close the printer access door. Then it will show you a message"Ink cartridges is not installed,install ink cartridges". then open again the printer access door, then install the black ink cartridge without the color ink cartridge. then close the printer access door, then message must be " Color ink cartridge is not installed, install color ink cartridge" then install the color ink cartridge." the message must be,"New printhead is detected calibration require, load paper and press start"

Thats the way of overiding the paper jam error message of your kodak all in one printer
hope this will help you guys

Paper jams/ printing blank


Thoroughly check for very small foreign objects in your printer, and check both behind in paper feeder area and inside the unit. Jams can be tiny pieces of paper than have gotten in or torn off paper fed in at slight angle but you may not have noticed. Service you printheads and rollers both manually with solution and cotton buds (q tips) and then see if your ink may be low or out, blocked printheads will obstruct ink from flowing at all. So will damaged printhead points on cartridge, signalling replacement time.

Lexmark 5400 series printer


Just today, our Lexmark 5400 began having paper jam issues. We'd try to print, and the paper would initially feed into the back and then wouldn't go any further. Then it gave printer jam error messages. After peering and poking into various areas of the unit I wound up disconnecting the printer from power, phone line, and USB connection, I took it to a better lit room.

Peering carefully into the back paper feed area, I discovered a pencil!! After excising the pencil, the printer worked fine. One of my precious children must have accidentally dropped a pencil into the back, or a pencil was resting on top of the unit and rolled into the back paper feed area.
Lesson learned, don't put pens or pencils on top of the printer.
