Question about HP Photosmart 8250 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Our HP 8250 just stopped printing balck. No errors show. When I print the print test page the headings for the various boxes show, they maybe slightly lighter than normal but the detail information prints so very faintly you can only just see that there is print there. It is not possible to read it. Trying to print a page of black text there is no print that can be seen? I have cleaned the black cartridge contacts and have removed the battery for 15/20 mins, but this has not changed the problem

    Sorry but I forgot to say that I have tried a second cartridge. The original is showing more than 1/2 full.

There is a white vertical streak on pages I print.


You can pull out each cartridge and shake it gently to redistribute the toner. Try a half page test to eliminate the various stages of the image formation. The timing on this is not easy but through trial and error it can be helpful.

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
