Question about HP Photosmart 145 Inkjet Printer refurb

1 Answer

I just got this HP 145 Printsmart from someone at a yard sale. I was told it worked but needed ink. I replaced the print cart, but after installing it and letting the printer do it's thing, I realized that the LCD screen is blank - nothing I've done has succesfully made anything light up. Any suggestions??

Dear
You can follow the link. Yes you do have to install 2 carts. to work the printer. However from printer setting you may disable color print.
Note Ink cart head gets clogged when not used prolonged time.

Hp 470 printer prints blank pages after replacing ink cart and reinstalling drivers and can't get the wireless feature to work


--Try to remove the cartridges

--closing the door

--unplug the printer

--plug the printer in

--when the printer powers on it will acknowledge the missing cartridges

--then put in the carts

See if the alignment page prints out with colour.

Had printer cartridge refilled but when i put it back in the messege says incompatible ink cartridge-black


I would never use refilled ink. This is a lesson. You can still print, yet the cartridge needs a new "chip" they should have given you when they refilled it. You can try: remove the cart. turn off printer, unplug it, then put old cart back in. Do this three or four times and the memory of the printer can only remember three or four resets and then put refilled cart in. Hope this works for you. I was told this for an HP 7130 (similar, yet older version).

I refilled my tri-color cartridge at Costco and my printer wouldn't print the alignment page. I bought a new cart and it worked fine. Then I re-installed the refilled cart to verify the fix, and it still...


a refilled cartridge IN NO WAY can lead to printer failure
the ink is the last thing on printer and has no effect to mechanical failures.
check here how you can refill your cartridge

Problem with hp deskjet 640c printer


i have an hp and find that they (color carts) cannot be refilled- the clever b*st*rds!! they stepped the ink reservoirs so, if you don't insert the re-fill needle 'just right', it bleeds into the others and you end up with a 'muddy' print-out! you need to buy a new hp cart, or shop around for a generic cart (cheaper) google your product & cart #. you may find a source for a cheaper cart.
the black carts. can be re-filled!
good luck!

My ph d7160 does not print in blue


NOT A SOLUTION, JUST SOME FACTS
First of all, your printer is "NOT" the worst model ever made, every printer that hp (as you probably noted I used small letters hp because I think hp is a small worm of a co.) makes is a problem waiting to happen. The worst of it all is that the don't care about there customers. I have a almost $300.00
photosmart that is a few months out of warranty, even though it stayed new in the box for over 6 months because of a heart attack I had. I ran out of two of the colored Inks, but continued to use the printer for word documents only till shortly after, the printer said it was unable to print till the two empty colour cart. were replaced. I continued printing all other items on my up stairs computer. About a month later, I purchased the cart. needed, installed them in the photosmart,(which I think is a oxymoron) and the printer came up with,"Ink System Has Failed" Error code oxc18a0306.
I know this is getting long winded, but it's the only way to get my point across fully. I contacted hp and after over 40 min. they told me that the error code was fatal and could not be fixed!!!!! They said It was out of warranty and would not be replaced for any amount of money besides paying full price for a replacement. ( Ya Like I Would Buy Another hp product). I have since then had the printer checked out and a small pc board with, a valve or sensor for all the ink supplies is not letting the yellow ink out of the pump to the print head. I contacted again, like a fool, hp and was on the phone for another 52.min. till they told me that part was not available..... End of story
P.S.
I hope this story gets out to every person that had, or has a hp product and
had a problem that was not resolved by hp, besides telling the customer they will fix the problem by selling to you ,at full price another printer.....
I'm All For Boycotting hp!
P.P.S.
I hope this gets back to hp

I don't know what the problem is


This light signifies there is a paper jam. If you are SURE there is no paper stuck, check the door sensor o the bottom right and spin the rubber wheels on the inside a bit! Hope this helps!
