Print Cartridge stuck

Look at the pad on the right side of the printer under where the ink cartridges are loaded. It may have ink deposits built up into lumps which interfere with the movement of the cartidges on the rod. Clean the deposits by scraping the lumps and removing all debris. This worked for me.

Print Cartridge is stuck

you need to manually pull the ink cartridges out. Just plug the unit and POWER it ON. When the print heads move, pull out the power cord from the wall outlet to abruptly turn it OFF. Now you can freely more the heads and pull out the cartridges.

HP Photosmart 7760 wierd colours and white lines

In this case I would suggest you to clean the cartridges of the printer.

Cleaning the ink cartridges with the HP Printer Toolbox
  1. Click Start .
  2. Click Settings .
  3. Click Printers .
  4. Right-click the icon of the printer in use.
  5. Click Properties .
  6. Click the Services tab.
  7. Click Open the HP Photosmart Toolbox or Service this device.
  8. Click the Device Services tab. This tab does not display in Windows XP; proceed to the next step.
  9. Click Clean the Print Cartridges .
  10. Follow the onscreen prompts.
Manually cleaning the ink cartridges
  1. Turn the printer on and lift the top cover.
  2. After the ink cartridges have moved to the center of the printer, unplug the power cord from the back of the printer.
  3. Remove the ink cartridges and place them wide side down on a piece of paper.
  4. Prepare a clean, foam-rubber swab or a lint-free cloth slightly dampened with water.
  5. Locate the copper-colored circuitry strip on the back of each cartridge.
  6. Clean the copper-colored strip with the dampened swab or cloth. Do not wipe the nozzle end of the cartridge or touch the nozzle plate.
  7. Clean the carriage contacts on the back wall of the ink cartridge carriage with a damp foam-rubber swab or lint-free cloth. Use a dry foam-rubber swab or a lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.
Cleaning the ink cartridge cradle
  1. Assume an eye level position with the HP Photosmart printer.
  2. Locate the ink cartridge cradle.
  3. Using clean, moistened swabs, wipe the underside of each wall of the carriage where fibers may collect and come in contact with the paper. Repeat until no ink residue is seen on a clean swab.
  4. Reconnect power cord when finished cleaning.
  5. When finished cleaning the ink cartridges and the cradle, print a test page.

Repaced ink cartridges,

I think it is not recognizing the new cartridges. Try to clean the slots of the cartridges where you place them. Try to clean cartridges bottom.

Than go to windows open the software installation CD provided and recalibrate the printer and there could be one more option to try.

If my advice helps you out rate me.

Cartridge 57 failed

Brenda Walker on August 18, 2009

I think I may have solved this problem. What I did was take out the #56 cartridge and hit the print button. It started to calibrate and then said it was printing on reserve or something? Yup, it printed with only one (#57 cartridge). After that, I stuck in a new #56 cartridge and so far so good for it only happened yesterday.

I hope this solves your cartridge #57 failed problem. Let me know if it does.

Printing from wrong cartridge

Basically on that issue try to adjust the settings on the printing mechanism, maybe your settings when printed a photo is just for a black and white,,but usually host cartridges that comes in the box, have little amount of ink its just for testing the product if it works fine..or try to go to control panel,printer and faxes,right click on the icon->properties->print test page...after that on the same process again go to printing preferences and try to clean the cartridge.okiez...hope this can solve the issue....have a nice day!!!

Color Cartridge Failure

You know, I'm not going to read the other solution. I know 100% FOR SURE, when a cartridge fails, it is dead and there is nothing you can do about it, but there is a good side. HP ink cartridges have a year warranty. Call them and tell them it failed, they'll send you a new one!
