One way of 'cleaning' the head is take a small shallow cup of some sort, fill it enough just to place the cartridge head in (maybe 1/4" or 1/2") of warm water, Soak the head of the cartridge for about 5 minutes. Manufacturers do not recommend this, however I have found it works for a cartridge that has been sitting for awhile unused.
It removes the dried ink from the head and lets it flow again.

Most printers programming has method of cleaning the print heads by printing. Try that a few times, if no luck, soak the head as described above. Good luck!

Hp 1350 does not copy


Hi Steve,

Does the printer give you any error message ? the best you can try on HP PSC 1350 is, Remove the cartridges and clean the electrical contacts ( golden points ) on the cartridge and put the cartridge back in. IT should go thru alignment process. IF it does not go, It should display some error. I hope the cartridges have ink in them.

Regards,
Suhail

On my psc 1350 when I hit print or copy the paper will feed in ok but the page comes out blank. The check ink cartridge light does not come on ?


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.

When i print the image is banded with white lines running through it. How do I fix this


Sounds like the print heads are clogged. Go to the printing preferences and find your way to the maintenance tab. In there should be a utility to check for clogs (Nozzle Test) and clear blockages (Clean the Print Heads). If these utilities do not fix the problem you can try pressing the print head (shinny metal on bottom of cartridge) into a lightly dampened paper towel for 3-5 sec. This should rehydrate dried ink. Be sure the contacts on the cartridge are clean and dry before reinstalling and see what you get. If it still is not better your cartridges may need replacing or it may be a sign of a paper feed malfunction.

All lights flashing on HP psc 1350 printer


Resetting a Hp printer means switching off the machine, removing the cartridges, disconnecting the usb cable and the power chord, leave it off for few minutes then restarting it again without usb cable connected to it and without cartridges installed. You need to press the power button while it boots up. Leave it one for few minutes and again turn it off. Reinstall the cartridges and plug in the usb cable, again Power On the printer. That's all.
But there's another thing when you say all lights are blinking/flashing, there is chance that there's an internal faulty. Clean the cartridges contact point and the contact points on the printer. If possible, clean the printer thoroughly, including the waste ink tank. This will let you help find out the culprit.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Ink cartridges stuck after replacement


HP PSC 1350.

Very sensitive printer. Due to dust, the catrdges are getting stuck at right side. Please clean the steel roller where the catridges are rested. Clean it with nice cloth and if possible put 3-in-1 oil in that area only for the smooth flow of catridges in that steel stem or roller.

This might happen iif we are not installing the orignal and genuine catridges and there is a chance of ink gettng leaked onto the printer.

Kind advise is if the printer is old, please put an annual maintenace service contract with local authorized hp Printer Dealer which will solve your problem once for all.

have a nice and good working day.
