Printer is leaking ink

We have an HP Officejet G85xi which has started leaking ink on a daily basis from underneath. It prints fine, both black and color.The ink cartridges were taken out and don't appear to be leaking. Is this problem solvable or do we need to get a new printer?

Prints blurry every other line with black color


Is it the ink cartridge contacts you already cleaned? If so, then you can also clean it using the tools menu from the printer panel:

-press setup menu, then go to tools
-select clean print cartridge and press ok
-it will print a test page. If the printout is good, you can try printing again.

I hope this helps.

Newly Installed 7680

probably you did nothing wring, I seen a few of these cartridges leak - HP should replace the machine if the damage was caused by original cartridges.

Black inkjet leaking on the bottom of our printer

i am almost sure that you have used a fortune of compatible ink which is thinner then the genuine ink in this case so now the waste ink sponge has been overfilled, you now have to check the waste ink sponges and change them, but take into account the cost won't be cheap, also you might have had an error code before that some technician reset which warned about this
