Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have replaced all of the ink and cleaned the heads like i was told but still green/yellow pictures
It seems that your magenta nozzle is not working. It may need to replace the head itself.

Same here- I'm running into this problem for the second time in less than 3 weeks on my HP C5150. . Brand new cartridge installed, and it is fine for a day - then 2 days later, after NO color printing - it suddenly shows as completely empty.
Last month when I had the same problem, customer support suggested the following, which seemed to work.
(typos were theirs - I just copied and pasted):
Please try the following step's
Power your C5150 on and remove all 6 cartridges and close the cartridge access door
With your C5150 powered on unplug the power cord directly from the back
Press and hold the OK button and the HELP button down together while you plug the power cord back in
Keep the button's held down until the display screen goes blank then release the button's and power your C5150 back on
When you are prompted on the display screen to install the cartridges install all 6 cartridges and close the cartridge access door
Are you still getting the same message ?
I did the printer reset but I only removed the yellow cartridge. follow the on-screen prompt and this process will take about 3-5 minutes. When everythings done, suggest to clean the printer head
Hope this help

I moved from the UK to the US with an hp 7310 all in one and also ran into the same problem. You need to call HP support for them to change the region of your printer to accept the locally available ink cartridges. A max of 3 changes is allowed, and as the previous poster has mentioned, if your printer is out of warranty they will try to sell you an extended warranty to "fix" the problem. Here is a link from baconvsprout detailing the problem and trying to get it fixed. http://www.baconvsprout.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=101:hp-customer-service-and-region-coded-printers&catid=35:sprout&Itemid=59
in short the best way to get around it is to get your cartridges refilled. In the US Office Max charges $10 for black which is about1/5 the price of the retail hp393 cartridge that I need to purchase from the UK. in my opinion I am going to avoid HP products from now on.
