Question about HP DesignJet 800ps InkJet Printer
Every time I turn it on the printer asks to remove the printheads to prepare the ink system. I follow the instructions and at some point says: "too little ink to prepare the ink system". I want to know if there is something that i can do to erase this error.
It sounds like the printer has been set to initialize as if new and thinks that there is no ink in the tubes so it wants to do a full prime. Other than replacing the carts and letting it run I am not sure there is another way.

SOURCE: I have a hp 7580
Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Printhead failure this is.
Turn the printer on.
use the Down Arrow key to scroll to the Ink system menu icon and press Enter.
NOTE:If the error code appears during initialization press the Enter
key to allow printer to complete the rest of the initialization process.
Scroll to Replace Printheads and press Enter.
The printer should now move the carriage to an accessible position.
Open the top cover.
Remove all four printheads.
Turn the printer off using the main power switch located on the back of the printer.
Turn the printer on.
Following initialization, insert one printhead at a time, starting with the black printhead.
Determine whether or not the printer accepts the printhead.
Turn the printer off and repeat steps for each of the printhead.
Replace the failed printhead.
Hope this helps

You need to go to the hp download site and download the System Maintenance Utility Software. Its free, but you need it before you can clean the print heads. also, for some reason it works best when hooked to the network, not directly to Computer.
