SOURCE: No black ink print. Prints in light blue

Cartriges have a shelf life. It's printing in blue either because it has dried up or is out. Different cartriges have different timelines but if you haven't been using the printer often, it could have dried up or is simply out of ink. I would suggest first to try cleaning the head of the cartrige where the ink comes out with alcohol and a Q-tip and then if that doesn't work, buying a new black cartrige.

SOURCE: hp c4480 prints blue instead of black

Check the print properties and verify the black ink cartridge still has ink in it.

Otherwise, you may have a bad ink cartridge. If the cartridge has not been used for a while, the ink gums up the nozzle. You can try cleaning the ink cartridge and slot with alcohol. However, new color and black cartridges may be the best solution.

Try cleaning the gold contacts on cart first, with distilled water. Let dry and try again.
If not, try this one

How do I get my HP Photosmart 5520 series to print from the front as opposed to the queue?


Evelyn, I think you're a little confused, the print queue is created when the printer is in standby mode, or you're sending documents to print faster than the printer can deal with them.
Printing from the front, I assume, is from the front tray where the paper is.
When you send something to print, you see a little printer icon appear near the clock (bottom right), double click it and a window opens, click printer and if use printer offline has a tick at te side of it, click on it and it will release the print queue.

2. On the Tools menu, touch the down arrow to scroll through the options, and then touch Align Printer.
3. Follow the instruction on the screen.
To align printer from the printer software

Black not printing


Leave the print head ( not the whole cartridge!) soaking overnight in a little puddle of solvent e.g. print head cleaner or alcohol. This is much more effective than the printer clean program or a quick rub with a cotton bud.

Hp 5520 will not print from sdhc 16g card


From what I can tell from the specs, the 5520 works with MMC and SD cards, 2GB and smaller. It won't work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.
