Re: printer problem

Did you check the right placing of the ink cart? Is the support locked above the cart top?

After checking press menue then start mono (blue copy button). then fourtimes arrow-up button. machine will display maintenance and blicking. press 7 then 6 then 4. machine will be initialize the carts. press start mono (blue copy). machine will initialize the carts and will run some cleaning. After maintenance is shown again leave this mode by pressing 9 then 9. Do a test print.

If you cant see any bk insert another brand new cart and do the procedure again.

If trhere is still no bk the print head is clogged (because of generic ink??) and cant be cleaned any more! The ph has to be replaced by service personal!

A black column of ink prints along with what ever I am printing. What is the cause of this?

Hi! You can try the following steps:

Clean the area around the ink nozzles
  1. Gather the following materials:
    • Dry foam-rubber swabs, lint-free cloth, or any soft material that will not come apart or leave fibers (coffee filters work well)
    • Clean sheets of paper
    • Distilled, filtered, or bottled water (tap water might contain contaminants that can damage the print cartridges)
      CAUTION:Do not use platen cleaners or alcohol to clean the area. These can damage the cartridge or the printer.
  2. Press the Power button to turn on the printer, if it is not already on.
  3. Open the cartridge access door. The carriage moves to the center of the printer. Wait until the carriage is idle and silent before continuing.
  4. Lightly press down on the cartridge to release it, and then pull the cartridge out to remove it from its slot.
  5. Place the cartridge on a piece of paper with the ink nozzles facing up.
  6. Lightly moisten a clean, foam-rubber swab with distilled water.
  7. Clean the face and edges around the ink nozzle with the swab.
  8. Either let the cartridge sit for 10 minutes to allow the cleaned area to dry, or use a new swab to dry it.
  9. Hold the cartridge by its sides with the nozzles toward the printer, and then insert the cartridge into its slot. Make sure that the icon on the cartridge matches the icon on the slot.
  10. Push the cartridge forward into its slot until it snaps into place.
  11. Repeat these steps to clean the area surrounding the ink nozzle on the other cartridge.
  12. Close the cartridge access door.
  13. Try to print again.
I hope this will help you. :D

I have installed a new ink cartridge and gone through the cleaning process serval times but I can not get anything to print in black. If a document is in all black, all I get is a blank sheet. If I change...

The first thing to check would be your print utility. Make sure that it is aware that there is a black cartridge installed. If you've gone through the cleaning process, try printing a test page and see if that will print the black. If not, it is either a setting in your utility telling it not to print in black and white, or a hardware issue with your printer. I will look up some documentation for your make and model printer to see what else the problem might be. Please advise with any changes when you check the print utility.

Hp 2605dn Black cartridge is printing 1/8" LEFT of other colors.

That problem is frequently on HP 2600 series.
You must try to change all remanufactured toner cartridges with HP OEM with no exception, the best alignment it is when you change the black cartridge and the printer make a cleaning page process. Cartridge HP OEM should be almoust empty. It Is not necesarry to be a new one. After the alignment process, you can put the remanufacturated cartridges back on.
This was work for me. 100%

Printing in color

Since you already tried cleaning tha colored cartridges the next thing that you can possible do is to remove all the cartridges then turn off the printer for 5 minutes then put the cartridges back in and hopefully now the printer will be able to recognize that cartridges are still not epty, but if still the same thing try to use another colored cartridges if possible so we can check if that will also give the saem results...

Hope that helps.......
