Place the original on the scan glass and do a copy from there.. If OK then clean the small strip glass to the left of the main scan glass. If not OK the open machine and check the following.


For worn marks on them.. as they both can cause this fault.

I've got a HP C4780 printer which I have had for around a year but only used about 5 or 6 times! Despite the ink cartridges having ink in them, the black cartridge is not printing at all. Not even a...

The ink solidifies right behind the micro printing nozzles. The only way to attempt to rectify this is to dip the print face into some warm (not hot) water for a minute or two, and dry after wards. If the cartridge recovers, Yippee, if it doesn't, replace.
Common problem. Be thankful it isn't a Canon or Epson, which entails replacing a seriously expensive 'print head'.

Faxing instructions do you insert paper face up or face down

If you're putting it on the glass, it goes face down. If you're talking document feeder, look for the icon of a page. It will show printing with a corner curled (face up), or a blank page with lines on the curled part (face down).

For an example of what a face up icon looks like, check out the HP instructions for an HP machine here

That's the generic answer to a non-listed model number :-)

Printer says "out of black ink", I replaced, still won't print.

are you sure it is a fresh cartridge? or a refilled one? because if its a refilled one it is normal that it will show that message "low on ink" but you can continue printing if your sure that it is properly refilled

Is there a registration number on your disc?

Do you have a folder left for the printer or did everything get deleted? You might look in the folder if it is still there to see if there is an informational page left.

Otherwise you need to contact HP. You can do that from
Once you are on their site, look oor support and click on the link to chat with one of their techs online. Have all of your info ready. the model and serial number of the printer. the name and address you used to register it under, etc.

Here is the link:

Good luck to you and be sure to let us know if this solution worked for you. Thanks.

Ink Cartridge Alignment

On alignment sheet, do you see a line of yellow blocks?
And on next line do you see alternate block and yellow blocks?

(Without these, alignment fails)

If not, change the colour cartridge, re-print the page and repeat alignment.

Good luck...
