    My Hp officejet v40 all in one printer continues to leak what I believe to be black ink. More so after print jobs. There are no streaks on the paper. but are starting to leave so spots. There have been big puddles under my printer on my desk even when the printer is not printing.

    I believe it is the printer my husband says it is the cartridge. The cartridge itself is not leaking or show any signs of leakage.



    PLEASE HELP.

Not sure it applies to v40 printers, but ask Bert the HP repair master (he is listed in that forum note).

Hp 3210 is leaking ink


Remove the black ink cartridge and put a piece of tape on it to prevent it from leaking all over your clothes. Find the receipt for the cartridge and return it to where you purchased it from. More then likely your going to have to clean out your entire printer to get rid of the ink that has leaked into it. You have a faulty ink cartridge. Hopefully you purchased a name brand cartridge and can return it. If you need assistance with instructions on how to clean out your printer, please advise.

If you were using an original cartridge, contact HP and they will probably ask you to mail in the faulty cartridge.

If you were using a refilled cartridge you might have to buy a new printer.

Leaking black in from the bottom of the printer


actually your printer needs servicing but for temprory solution.take a bunch of tissue paper .keep the printer on and the printer cover open so the cartridge will be in the center.then with the tissue paper place it internally on the side from where its leaking.the sponge which collects the wastage ink is at present got full and now it does not have the capacity to soak the ink.so its leaking.as you will place the tissue papers the ink will be soaked by tissue paper and the sponge will again become bit dry to soak more ink.but its the temprory solution.to make it permanent get the printer serviced and sponge replaced.the problem is not all serious ,its common.every printer comes to this stage after certain usage.and the servicing is the solution.a local printer repair shop also does the servicing job .
hope this helps.
thanks.

HP DeskJet 930c is leaking black ink


The printer primes and cleans the cartridges when the cartridges go to the right side of carriage. Sounds like a cartridge has either leaked or you have used it enough the the ink pool is full, or you have layed the printer on its side or back. From experence, if ink is leaking out of the printer, your probley better off getting anithe printer. I have tried to take the covers off and clean inside print, and it is a messy job.
