I just changed all of the ink cartriges. Now the magenta and Cyan are not functioning....nothing. Everything is yellow and black, I cleaned the print heads twice, just wasting ink. I tried to align the...


If it worked before changing the ink-cartridges, then it probably is _NOT_ a case of "clogged" ink-jets in the print-head.

Did you remove the plastic "sealing" tape from the new cartridges, before you installed them?
If not, then no ink can leave the cartridge.

Which model of HP printer? Maybe, you got a "dud" of a new ink-cartridge.
Take it out.
Take an old, thick, section of newspaper, and lie it flat on your table.
Dampen a paper-towel, and put it onto the newspaper.
Touch the ink-cartridge to the paper-towel -- it should "bleed" some ink onto the towel.
Not much ink, but the newspaper is there to protect the surface of the table.
If no "bleeding", then the ink-cartridge is the problem.

Greetings the easy cleaning in the back of the cartridges have a metal connectors should be clean and not be exposed for anything ben ink. Well to solve the problem of the magenta who spends a lot is that you get a new cartridge and inserting it as many times you buy to fill and the ink is so solid that nothing comes out of ink.

I just bought a new yellow ink cartridge, and when I put it in the printer says that the yellow ink is depleted. I changed the ink two times. What should I do?


If you are using off brand cartridges that are remanufactured (refilled), that may be your problem. I have had several HP printers and when I used refilled cartridges, it wouldn't print. I stay with genuine HP ink cartridges. Just my opinion!

Is it possible to use non HP ink in ths printer? Tried using "remanufactured ink", and concluded that this printer may be programed to block the use of NON HP INK.


It is always recommended to use genuine HP cartridges.
As if we will use the non HP or refilled cartridges, it will reduce the life of the printer.
And we will get an error "cartridge problem".
Plaese use the below cartridges, which are compatible with this printer.

"ink system failed"


This could be an issue with the connectors to the chips on the cartridge, make sure the chips on the carteidges are clean then check the ones on the inside of the ink holder, POWER OFF before doing this as you could cause damage to the printer if powered on, lift the lid, wait for the rack to engage the centre then turn the power off at the wall.
Hope this helps

How do we bypass the expired ink cartridge message on the HP D7360. Magenta ink cartridge is not empty.


Take out both the cartridges > wipe it with clean cloth> then the ink part of the cartridge wipe it with plain white paper> let little bit of the ink come out on the paper & put them back again in the printer>restart pc + printer - ur done. no more messages on your printer>then print a test page-simple.

Very Faint Printouts


I find the best way to clean the heads is buy some cleaning cartridges as they have cleaning fluid in them and use them to clean it will take about 10 or more times to clean the heads then put the color ones back in and try again.
Just keep putting it on clean the head don't do a print out till at lest you have cleaned 10 or more times.

The cartridge needs cleaning. There are several things you can try. Using a wet paper towel, you can wipe the gold portion of the cartridge to try and draw out ink, or you can dunk the entire cartridge in warm water for a couple minutes or so (I have done this with success). The process is more clearly explained here:
