Question about HP Photosmart 8250 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Black ink stopped printing in the middle of a print job. Ink indicator showed still full. Replaced anyway, no help. Printer thinks it is printing, but comes out blank. Using factory ink cartridges. Tried turning off and leaving off for 2 minutes. Same with computer. Replaced cartridge a second time. ran diagnostic. Printer does not recognize a problem. Ran through cleaning process several times. No change. Color cartridges work fine. Help!

DCP j125 Inkjet printer stopped printing showing msg. ink absorber is full. What to do?

well, cut the small piece of black tape (or you can use black permanent marker) and then cover the sensor of the cartridge, once the device will ask you to reinstall the cartridge and new system will detect as a new cartridge

My brother mfc 420cn printer quit printing...

I'd venture to say that if you haven't used it in a while the ink dried up and clogged the print head. It is probably a job for a service center. Good luck

Flashing ink refill light

Sometimes refilling them over and over doesn't work well. Once ok...but i suggest that you buy a new cartridge. I know that they are expensive but it will help. Also take some Rubbing alchohol and a q-tip...clean inside where the cartridge sits..that will help...this is for sure a bad ink cartridge
