Question about HP cp1700 Color Inkjet Printer

1 Answer

HP CP1700 prints wrong colors with streaky horizontal lines. I have run the clean utility ten times and still have same problem. Where are the printer heads and how can I remove them to clean manually?

    No, I replaced the ink cartidges with new HP brand inks not refills. The black is what seems to be clogged. I've also run the alignment utility, but no better. The pritner had been sitting idle for about a month before I started printing again. If I replace the half full cartridge with a new one, will it solve the problem?

HP LASERJET 3800 PRINTS THIN BLACK LINES ON PICTURES


that print head is clogged,
do the clean cycle shown in the manual;
new cartridge time if cleaning does not work.
all things work last week but now.
nothing new here and for sure pesky printers
and for sure not used every day. (this keep them going more reliably)
made back in 2008, so is getting long in tooth and on most this full cleaning of the whole printer is advised. ever do that?
per manual?
rtm?

My printer just prints in very light red


You are out of red ink, OR the print head is clogged (but that usually) produces streaky lines more so than light color.
You can try cleaning the print heads:
  1. Open the 3845 desktop assistant c00026601.gif icon on your desktop or start menu
  2. click on utilities or tools
  3. click maintenance
  4. click clean cartidges
  5. follow the on screen instructions
If that doesn't help, you're either out of ink in which case:
  1. Buy a new cartridge (or have yours refilled professionally)
or your print head is clogged beyond repair, in which case:
  1. Buy a new cartridge
Happy printing.

Many people had a similar problem with the Color Inkjet cp1700 B-size printer.

Another solution that worked for some people was installing the hp deskjet 9800 printer driver.

It appears what you need is a patched .gpd file for the BI 2800.
Try emailing Bob Headrick, who has done these patches. (Thanks Bob)!
Be sure to put Vista and Large Format Printing 11x17 in the subject line.

You'd think between HP and MS, they'd have this working right out of the box.
Did they think people would buy a B-size printer so they could hook it up to Vista and then not want to print mainly B-size documents?
They would have had happier customers if they would have included B-size support but left out A-size!
Amazing!

Good Luck

Printer output has shadows, blurring, streaks, lines, poor color


Seem like blocked hole(s) on the color print head...
Most likely if there is a deep clean option then do it (may need a few times to unblock a hole or never).
Also get the printer physically cleaned up if you can see dusts inside (vrtical lines on color bars).

Ink levels/streaky printing


remove the carts & using a wet paper towel, clean the nozzles on the carts to see if your getting any traces of ink. U can also go to the solution center & under maintainence u will fine an option Clean to fix horizontal. try this twice that should also clear any blocks then try this
  • Printer power OFF
  • Hold down the PAPER FEED button while powering the printer ON
  • Release button after powering printer ON
  • Test is continuous, so turn off when printing is complete
If the cart has any ink it will print 3 color lines & a blk line

HP 7110 still won't print in color


Your post "...it prints very faint horizontal lines in color..." is indicative that indeed your color printheads are clogged and would need repetitive deep head cleaning. This is of course would require that you keep on cleaning until such time as the faint color lines have turned to legible print.
