I keep on getting Ink System Failure for HP 309a inkjet printer. I tried to clean the printer head still no lack.


Most likely, it is a print head issue. The print head is what the printer cartridge sit in inside the printer. To fix the problem, please do the following:

1) Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over.
2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water or a mix of hot water and isopropyl alcohol to clean the printer head and electronic contacts on ink cartridge.
4) Repeat the same procedure until no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
5. Once finished, allow to dry and put back the ink cartridges in.
6. Try printing.

If the above troubleshooting won't work then maybe one of the cartridges is defective or both. If none of the cartridges are defective, then you need to replace the print head.

I hope this helps.

WHAT IS THE CARRIAGE CARTRIDGE


There are two different types of carriage units that you may be referring to depending upon the model printer you have. Older types of photo printers had two distinct carriages.

1. Carriage referees to equipment that travel left to right in your printer.
2. One is for the print heads that receive ink from your print cartridges and dispenses it to the paper that you are using.
3. The print head carriage that travels back and forth to accept replacement ink cartridges. Most of the time it is tucked to one side or the other and only travels when the printer is opened in a specific way to expose it for ink replacements.

In newer systems the print heads are built into the Ink cartridge, each color has it's own print head.


So in answer to your question the carriage cartridge is more than likely the container that you put your ink cartridge into. Unless you have an older printer and then it would or could be the carriage for either the print head or the ink. They some times need to be replaced. I had to replace that cartridge in an old HP2500 for as long as we had the printer. (4 years). Great machine high maintenance.

My C6280 was working fine then all at once it started to print very light. I have not got any error messages. I cleaned the printhead and it was pretty good on the first page I printed, the second page...


Hi.

The machine does not monitor the pressure of the ink. If there is a problem due to blockage of ink nozzles or defective print-head or cartridge it will not be detected by the main control. When instead the problem is the ink delivery system that transports ink from supply station to carriage print head, the problem will usually get spotted by main controller board and you get a "ink delivery system failure" error.

If the ink is fading is generally either cartridges or print-head. If you have already tested the cartridges by replacing them with cartridges from a different lot (make sure they are not refilled but new ones), then the problem is usually the print-head.

Cleaning the print-head with the option available in HP software will rarely help to solve this kind problem. You can try removing the whole ink carriage and soaking the part in isopropyl alcohol for about two day. The assembly is held to the rail and gets released using a gray tab on top back and disconnecting the cable at the back. Removal of the upper cover is usually needed. Printhead is HP part number 5069-7161.

Here the print head for this printer.

Here you can purchase parts and service manual for your printer.

Ink system failure


Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.

Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage. Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
If that does not work then follow the next step.

Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Ink carriage started make some horrible noises. Stopped printing. I changed to new ink. Now no ink is printing. Ink carriage just makes thumping noises. Is there a part that can be easily purchased or...


Examine the belt that powers the print head, see if it is excessively sloppy, check the head moves freely along the print head bar, if it snags, there is damage to the bar or the print head holder is worn

TBH, I'd bury it if there is any wear as replacement parts are expensive compared to a new printer

I keep getting System Error 0A0000 00000002


The error indicates low air pressure to the ink supply station. There is either a leak or the Air Pressure System (APS) is bad. Check for ink inside the rear door to the Ink Supply Station (ISS) and at the print head locations at the carriage.

If there is ink leaking at the ISS, replace the ink cartridge that is leaking. If there is a leak at the print head, replace the ink tube system. If there are no leaks, replace the APS. See the following link for parts: http://www.lpscomputer.com/c-654-designjet-1050c-1055cm.aspx

Canon i960 printer won't print in blue


Your problem is the print head. You can buy one from Canon for about $95, or find them new from dealers on Ebay for $60 to $70. For a less expensive fix, try to remove the print head and clean it. (You don't need any tools, just remove the ink tanks and pull the print head forward and out. Over time, the receivers tend to get dry & crusted ink on them. Note that the inks used are fast drying inks to keep your pictures, etc. from smudging after you print them. Try not to use solvent. I use q-tips and hot water, then dry using another q-tip. If this does not work, there are commercial cleaning kits available for about $10. Short of that, your choice is to replace the print head or the printer itself. My i960 prints such good quality color prints and normal color printing, that I would fix it rather than replace the printer. I hope the easy cleaning does it for you!
