Question about HP DeskJet 812c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP 812C will not print yellow but everything else is A-OK Repeated cleanings have NO effect. Cleaned contacts on printer where it connects to cartridge, no effect. HP 23 cartridge only has about 10 pages of color on it, not much yellow ink used. It quit printing yellow in middle of a photo print.

HTML clipboardHi,
It you haven´t used your printer for a while It sounds like the yellow has clogged up in the print head.
Although you have ink you need to print something regularly about every 10 days to keep the tiny jets open
otherwise it´s like trying to pass a camel through the eye of a needle.

So the inks may have clogged up?

The empty weights are 65g C6615A [No. 15] black and
90g C1823A color ink cartridge
anything over that... 1g = 1ml of unused ink.

So if you still have ink you can easily unclog it with a HTML clipboard Magic Inkjet Flush Kit (find it on Ebay)

Good Luck!

Won't Print Color Ink


INK PROBLEM
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

My 812 c only prints black and magenta. I put in a fresh color cartridge, ran it through alignment, prime, and clean functions and still only magenta prints


The cartridge may be defective, but before returning it, try cleaning the electrical contacts on the cartridge and the printer.
Use a q-tip and distilled or bottled water.
Do not touch the part of the cartridge where the ink comes out, just the electrical contacts (dots) on the cartridge, and the contact points in the printer that they connect to.
After cleaning the cartridge, put it back in. If you still only get one color, replace the cartridge.
If the replacement cartridge does the same thing, call HP tech support.
If the replacement works, call HP and get them to replace the defective cartridge.

Printer is only printing pinks. Just changed ink


Try cleaning the print head. Do this under the tools for the 812c (do not physically clean). You may have to run the clean utility as much as 5 times.

All of my ink cartridges are full but the yellow won't print.


Try taking alcohol and qtips just to the contact strip where the cartridge and the printer meet? What type of connection to the computer is it?

Replacing Colour Cartridge


Most likely dirty connections. Try cleaning the print cartridge, and the contacts inside of the printer with a swab of alcohol. The cartridge, and printer need to communicate properly, and sometimes a fingerprint or ink can interfere. (Yes I know I don't spell very well, sorry)
