SOURCE: Ink clog between magenta cartridge and print head.

print head may be burned out try cleaning it then tap the cartridge and try a test page to see if it prints, if it still does not work try a new cartridge if that does not work then the print head is burned out, it may be under warranty you can go to www.hp.com and input your model and follow the trouble shooting guide and if you can't fix it you can register for free live chat help with the problem and it may be under warranty, many printers are having problems with this color cartridge drying up and causing problems not only hp but other brands as well. I suspect the pigment drys up but am not sure about it.

SOURCE: will not print . print head moves but no print.

Since this is an inkjet machine, there should be a way to force the printer to go through a self cleaning which should clear the print head of any blockage.

Kodak printers 7 and 9250 esp not printing.


If you do not print weekly with a Kodak printer, the ink can dry inside the heads and they stop printing. I have had this happen to two of my Kodaks. To prevent this, if you are not using them regularly, print a test sheet weekly and you should have no problem. At this point, your best bet is to order new heads for your printers and then maintain them with weekly test prints.

How to remove ink carriage


1
Ensure that the printer is plugged in and then turn it on by pressing the power button on the control panel.
2
Lift the top cover on the printer to expose the print heads.
3
Press the ink button (has an image that looks like an ink droplet beside it) on the control panel and then release it. The print head carrier will move to an accessible position inside the printer, with the first empty print head stopping under the ink out mark (the ink droplet with the line through it) located just above the carrier.
4
Press the ink button again and the print head carrier will move to the next empty print head. Continue pressing the ink button until the printer has acknowledged all the empty print heads and then the carrier will move to the print head replacement position.
5
Flip the print head carrier cover forward.
6
Choose an empty print head and grab it with your thumb on the front of it and your index finger on the back. Press in on the tab on the back of the print head and lift it out of the carrier.
7
Wrap the print head in a paper towel so that ink does not leak on anything and dispose of it.

I have a Xerox 8560MFP printer with the following error code. 07010.43:39050 Any help would be appreciated


Your print head is stuck. Either the print head block has gotten ink in it and will not allow it to tilt, or the print head wiper is tacked, ( stuck) to the print head not allowing it to move properly.

C86 Goes through printing process but nothing prints.


Have you carried out 2 or 3 head cleaning cycles? If not, do it. Is there ink on paper now after this cleaning? If so, but it is streaky, leave the printer for 24 hours and repeat the head cleaning. If not, you must soak the heads for at least 24 hours - use print head cleaning fluid or distilled water NOT TAP WATER. Proceed as follows:

Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head starts to move, pull the power lead out of the printer, or turn it off at the mains. The print head should now be free to move by hand. Move it out of the way to the left. On the right you should see the print head parking area. There is a rubber cup that is designed to fit under the print head to keep the ink from drying out. Using a syringe or dropper, fill this cup with print head cleaning fluid. Then gently move the print head as far as it will go to the right. The print nozzles are now bathed in print head cleaner. Leave it for at least 24 hours, then repeat the cleaning cycle process.
