My magenta ink wont print


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Pump stall hp cp1700


I know this is years old, but just in case someone else has this problem....

I just had this problem and fixed it quite easily.

Like you, my ink cartridge flooded the ink bay and caused the printer to complain about a pump stall.

Mine was fixed by taking the cover off (u don't need to) and cleaning all the ink off the white strip.

Basically, there's a white piece of plastic with a metal rectangle on it. it sites to the left of the thing under the print heads (the part doesn't move. Under the big part with all the print heads) and to the right of the paper rollers.

It's also the thing that stops the print heads from moving when they're not to be moving.

Mine was covered in black ink. I cleaned it off and turned on the printer to find it working again and no more "pump stall" messages.

I don't know what the plastic piece is for, but cleaning it fixed my problem. Also there's no "pumps" in the printer (it uses gravity to feed the ink).

Printing is ok when started but will start to move left as it prints until the print head starts slamming into the left side. then will stop with head stall


I'd suspect there is either damage to the drive belt or gears, or other circuit failure, which is not providing the correct instructions to the print head

Carriage stall.. clear carriage obstruction and press resume...


Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.


Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now

If that does not work then follow the next step.


Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Yelllow wont print,...changed cartage cleaned


If after cleaning the print head and changing the cartridge yellow still doesn't print, it sounds like there may be a problem with the print head or the board that controls the print head. The print head may not be receiving the signal to turn on. Check the circuit boards on the machine for obvious damage or a burn smell. Depending on the model printer it may be cheaper to replace the printer than to have the board or print head replaced.

Hello,
If the print head moves left and right smoothly on the paper as it is printing and all the other colors and black print is ok the surely the Print Head is faulty, get it replaced and your printer will be OK.

Cartridge Stalls


hmmm...not too good on this one. Seems that maybe there's some paper jamming the runners or mechanism under the head carrier. Check that first, but be careful, since it's delicate under there
