    Mine was printing 1/2 the characters, now it's given up doing that as well. Just blank pages with very faint ink-marks. Cannot find anyway to ask it to clean itself.

Hi
I have been filling cartridges for appox 12 years.
Stand the cartridge in 2mm of nail varnish remover preferably in a polythene container.
Leave for 5 mins should clean it.
Still not clean?? Then remove label from top of cartridge this will expose the holes to each chamber. Introduce air into the chambers using a syringe without the needle attached. By forcing air into the cartridge will force the jellified ink out through the printhead

The yellow ink light keeps flashing on my HP5150 printer, I have just installed new cartridges and have tried cleaning the sensors but that hasn't worked


If the old cartridge also give that alarm so ignore it and keep working..it's a sensor malfunction
but if the old one is not giving that alarm, i think its compatibility problem or the new cartridge is not original.

CLEAN INK PADS ,


The print head is integrated with the print cartridge itself. If your print quality is degraded, try searching on Google for a way to clean the print cartridge with alcohol. Or it might just be time to buy a new cartridge. In that case, do another search on Google and learn how you can earn money by sending in your old printer cartridges for recycling, instead of just throwing them away.
