Poor print quality hp c7180


Hi, First clean the print head and clean the nozzles. Reset your printer and select best quality printing in printer properties. Finally you have to replace the cartridges.

The pink and magenta cartridges won't print. We have replaced them again thinking the cartridges were faulty, but still we just get yellow print. HP Photosmart C7280 All-in_One


Sounds like you need to run a printhead cleaning cycle. Dried inks can block nozzles - if they're blocked no amount of cartridge changing will make them work.

Photosmart C5280. Instructions on photo cartridge 348 say remove both black and colour cartridges, then install photo cartridge in right hand cartridge holder. Printer screen then tells me to install...


Your printer uses the following cartridges:

HP 74 - Black ink
HP 75 - Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow ink
HP 99 - Photo Black, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta

You need Photo Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta to print photos. To accomplish this you install the HP 99 photo cartridge where your HP 74 black cartridge usually goes and you keep the HP 75 color cartridge where it's at. I don't know why your printer told you to remove both cartridges, then reinstall the HP 75 color cartridge.

C7180 Print in color without all cartridges


You can usually print with an empty cartridge, even though the software will inform you that the cartridge is empty. Your print quality may be affected, however.

If you look your print heads have a colour symbol on them and cyan is a triangle. Magnenta is a square, yellow is a circle.
