Question about HP Photosmart C7250 All-In-One Thermal Printer

Open Question

Ink cartridges in HP Photosmart C7250 need replacing..

Each print, I'm prompted to replace the black ink cartridge on screen. Upon removal from the printer (shaking), its full-even the replacement is a new HP one. The onscreen display doesnt reflect a low black ink cartridge, however when printing, the exclamation is lit and I'm tasked with pushing the 'OK' button. I have restarted disconnecting everything a few times. Is there a print test page, calibrate, or auto cleaner to clear/test the ink? Anyone else having this problem?

HP support decided it could not be repaired on line, agreed to replace it but found it was a few days out of waranty...so it is dead in the water. Probably not cost effective to repair it.

Hello sir; did you remove the tape sealed on the black cartridge, make sure your cartridge is OEM not GENERIC.

Either the print head for black is faulty, or the wiring to the black print head on carriage are broken. Try also cleaning the metal sensor to the black cartridge inside the ink carriage.

SOURCE: HP L7590 black ink printing poorly even with new HP cartridge

I have had the same problem It is the print head not the cartridge If your printer is still under warranty have the printhead(s) replaced if not Open the unit where the print heads are and hold the OK button for 5 seconds. The Print head carriage will move to the left

Carefully remove the KY (Black & Yellow) Print head with a cotton swab and alcohol clean the contacts and replace the printhead. If this does not work remove the printhead and then with a spray bottle spray the nozzle area on the bottom (DO NOT TOUCH THE NOZZLES AS THEY WILL BE DESTROYED) HP techs have told me this will void any warranty so act accordingly I use a printhead cleaning solution available from most any online ink supplier

Replace the printhead after it has dried out (less than a minute). The printer will then go through an alignment cycle and should print I had to do this several times before the print head performed as it should

Black Ink does not print...I've tried cleaning the jet, replacing the ink cartridge, cleaning the cartridge intake....but, still no ink is flowing for some reason...


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

I bought a black ink for my hp photosmart c5 180 and the when i turn on the printer it says the ink has expired. Can i still use it or will i damage my printer. Thanks regards Anita


Hello
according to HP
Each ink cartridge has an expiration date. The purpose of expiration is to protect the printing system and to ensure ink quality. When you receive an ink cartridge(s) are expired message, remove and replace the expired ink cartridge, and then close the message. You can also continue printing without replacing the ink cartridge, by following the instructions on the HP All-in-One or the ink cartridge expiration message on your computer screen. HP recommends replacing the expired ink cartridges. HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of expired ink cartridges. Device service or repairs required as a result of using expired ink will not be covered under warranty.
You can get more detail from here

Printer wont print it has a new black ink cartridge but the color inks has no more.how can i print black only.


You cannot print unless both cartridges are installed and have a decent supply of ink left in them. It doesn't matter if your printing only black and wont need to use the color cartridge. It still have to be installed with ink for your printer to work. There is no way of getting around this problem.
I wish I had better news for you.

Hp photosmart c7250 ink system failure


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink or toner cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled (the absolute worst possible choice) or third party cartridges (2nd. Worst possible choice) that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks or toner causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead or photo conductors.
If you are using factory new ink or toner cartridges, then please call the manufacturer’s Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Can you refill the black ink cartridge on the c7250? If so, how.


Thermal printer? Normally a thermal printer doesn't have cartridges.

Anyway, my opinion is you should not refill ink cartridges. I have a basement full of printers with dead print heads due to third party ink being used or third party cartridges being used in a wide assortment of printers including a HP Photosmart.

Don't run the risk to save a couple bucks, please.

Thanks for you interest in FixYa.com

My printer screen says


The ink is contained in a cartridge.

Note that "backup" printing mode mixes colours, to produce "black", because the "black" ink-cartridge has failed.

So, replace the BLACK ink-cartridge.
