Question about HP DeskJet 1220c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Print rarely completes

Hi I've had my HP 1220c for a while now but it has never really worked properly. The main recurring problem is that the print rarely completes and the lights begin flashing. The ink is not low and I'm sure I have the latest drivers. I've even tried the printer with a different computer and the same problem shows up. Could you help please?

You need to clean the rail that the print head rides on and especially the carriage portion that makes contact with the rail. The bushings at that location are more than likely gummed up with ink and paper dust.

Hp 1220c window xp driver


i updated my driver for my hp1220C on XP after a crash that stopped the valuable print preview function working ...(printer worked but was print immediate - -and no tool box options etc) . i can't believe i found how to fix the driver ... you need to right click the exe file [before running it] dj1074en.exe or whatever ... and 'properties' - 'compatibility' click near 'compatibility mode' 'windows 2000' - then run it ... and voila -- i now have the print preview and all the lovely functions back again!!!! crazy!! took me 3 hours to find this ... it may well work with vista -- to select the windows 2000 option .. don't know that one ... at least until HP update all corectly and clearly

HP Deskjet 1220C cartridge recognition problem


This happens when the connections on the cartridge get old. Especially when you refill or buy non HP Cartridges, try buying brand new hp cartridges and you might be able to get a couple refill out of them before this happens again.
