The comon reason a wheelwriter will not print is because of a broken milling selnoid cap on the print senolid. Check and see if the print hammer is jiggleing a little when you print-if so all you need is the cap. John Cazier

I have an HP L7680. I have all HP ink cartridges. The printheads read monitor and good. I have printed the diagnostics page and aligned and cleaned the printheads and calibrated. No matter what I do...

Cleaning the print heads can sometimes help and other times aggravate the problem, because cleaning takes a lot of ink out of the cartridges. If the cartridges are emptied using the cleaning procedure, then the cartridges will have to be replaced with new ones.

The ink jet information provided by hp's software can sometimes be just an estimate of how much ink is in the cartridge and not an actual reading by the electronics. So... Try new ink jet cartridges fresh from a package to see if that solves the problem, and make sure that the contacts are blown free of dust or dirt.

Good luck on this repair.

New cartridges not printing

Sounds like the cartridges are faulty whihc does happen with non hp cartridges. try the cleaning process in the setup/tools menu. if this doesn't woprk send the cartridges back and get another set. The cartridges have their own printhead so it can only be the cartridges at fault

Color Faded

This sounds like a typical Developer Drive failure. The Developer Drive for color is different that the black developer drive. This is why black can print fine, but colors are faint or non existant. see below,a recent bullitin about this exact issue from Dell. ( the ROS, is the printhead, and is located behind the 4 developers.

Print Quality Issue
1. Problem: - Color images are extremely faint or not produced, but black images are produced without any problem.
Resolution: - Replace Developer drive assembly (H6702) and clean ROS Window/Glass.
If you chose to persue this repair, you can probably find a replacement developer drive by doing either a google search for the part number listed ( H6702 ) or an ebay search for the same. We can also provide you with removal and replacement instructions.

Good Luck

Will not print

The plastic cap on the print solenoid is probably broken.
They are available for 15.00 from us including shipping, a little tricky to install.
