Question about HP DeskJet 842c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have not used my HP 842C printer in 4 years. It will not print with the old cartriges. Before I go out to buy new cartriges, is there any thing to clean up to make sure it is worth the purchase price of two new cartridges.

No, your printer is self-cleaning because the print head is in the cartridge.

How do i trick kodak esp office 2150 after refilling black ink


completely agree with you jeff! I think it just runs off of the date you put the last printer cartrige in or how many prints you have ran with it in. theres a little "microchip" thing on the front of the cartriges that if you switch that out with one off of a new cartrige, your old one will still work fine. but then you only have a certain amount of time/prints that will still come out of your new cartrige if you switch it back after the old cartrige is depleted. If you even deplete the whole old cartrige before the printer decided that the chip on that one is too old or printed too many pages...complete BS, I dont think I have ever been this mad at company before, and I will never ever buy another kodak product again!!!

Print with single cartrige. I rarely use color. The color cartrige ran dry and nothing will print in b&w until I buy a new color cartrige ( for about $37.50) and install it. HOW DO I BYPASS THIS...


as long as the color print cartridges remain in the printer you should be able to print in only black and white.
If the error message does not come up and prompt you to chose this option, you should be able to tell the printer to print in black .

(1) go file print or print
(2) a gray box will pop up click on properties
(3) Click color
(4)click gray scale

This should do it for you!
(5) select black print cartridge only

Is HP Printer #842C not usable with Windows 7?


To some degree they are correct. Your printer is NOT Windows 7 compatible. However that does not mean that some of the functions may not work. According to HP it can be made to partially work with W7. However for the price of new ink cartridges for this old printer which you may or may not ever get to work correctly, you can buy a brand new printer that will work with W7 and be superior to the printer you now have. From my experience with old printers this may very well be your best solution but it is your choice. I personally would just buy a new pinter. Here is what HP say's about this issue: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01874792&lc=en&dlc=pt&cc=pt&lang=pt&product=60426

The printer do not recognize the new replacement cartrige


I have many epson printer, some more than 5 years old. It's ok. some have printed more than 50.000pages, it's ok.
If Ink cartridge Unrecognizable, there are two posibilities : Chip Error at ink tank, or printer error. For chip error, try to plug the ink tank to another printer (same type). If the ink tank recognized by other printer, so the problem is printer.
So ;
1. Check chip conector at head carriage.
2. Check the wiring of the head, and chip.
If two point above is ok, the last action is check the power supply and board. It may be epprom is damage.

Print head proplems on the hp photosmart 3310


ok, if you are using old cartriges, might want to try some rubbing alcohol on a tissue. This has worked on a number of cartriges in the past when i start getting missing pins. it lubricates the holes so in can flow again.

Take a q-tip and do the same if there's any kind of print head, but most print heads these days are built into the cartrige.
