Try cleaning your ink nozzles or ink jets. It sounds like you have a plugged nozzle or two. Your printer program should have maintenance options that allow you to test for plugged nozzles and clean them.
In control panel, open the printing/fax icon, right click on your printers icon, left click properties, then on the bottom of the page the panel that opens you will see a button that says printing preferences, and that should open your print program.

I can only print 15-or so photos then it runs out of ink. That seems ridiculous, has to last longer than that. Is this normal ? If not, what can I do about it ?


You don't specify what printer you have but a quick google search brought up this review and great tips for an HP printer on Amazon:

Many reviews point for 40 prints and less..yes I confess that I was printing 40 or less if I use premium plus papers but not any more.

I bought 16 cartridge since I bought my HP A618 but the last cartridge printed 140 and still I can print photos (I got the warning of low ink in 100)

what I did is changed the setting in the HP Photosmart Essential 3.0 the software to use it to print your photos. these are the changes:

1- After you click at the Simple Print, make sure you choose the correct size not bigger or Full Page. (for me usually 15x10)

2- choose Printer Settings at the top right then confirm your paper size (if you use paper with tab, select it)

3- click at the Advanced printer Settings. then select your paper type (advanced or premium photo papers). select print quality, Best. I use the (best) printer quality because I didn't notice any difference while using Maximum dpi and I think Maximum dpi only good when you print 5x7 but trust me, don't ever use it. stick to (best). it consumes less ink than maximum and the output is amazing.

4- Click at the (Features Tab) at the top left. then at the bottom there is a very bad technology which is (photo fix), always put it OFF. this feature makes your ink finish earlier. Don't use it ever.

before I use the new settings, I decided to buy Canon PIXMA mini320 but it was out of stock so I bought 2 cartridges to print 70 photos. but the first cartridge still usable.

soon I'll use the second cartridge and I'll try to update my review.

for now, use the settings above and I hope you get more printed photos of a single cartridge.

Update 13-6-2008:

now I have used another 2 inks of this..one has printed 48 photos and the second printed 81 photos and still in use.

I got a tip from hp life chat support. they told me to buy the longest expiry date ink which means the ink expire date will last 1 year or 2. I bought an ink that will expire at aug-2009 which I'm still using it until now and another june-2008 which only printed 48.

Paper for 110 ink:
don't ever use premium or premium plus HP papers. they will not dry as long as you live or even water-proof papers. they will consume more ink too. you have 2 other options. Canon paper plus glossy or high-glossy and HP advanced glossy. both are incredible. I got stunning photos when I used them and longer life ink.

Photo quality settings:
if you edit your photos in the PC, don't forget to set the resolution of the photo at 600dpi or 300dpi. to know more about the resolution search the net for (PPI & DPI). once you understand them you will know that you didn't ever get a perfect photo. now when I compare the best photo before this method and after, I realized that I was a ****** who wasted money on papers like premium and lost quality of 400 photos I printed by not setting the resolution of the photo which is the same as the printer.

If you still interested in buying this ink, follow these steps above specially the expiry date of the ink and using HP advanced or canon plus paper. and before you buy new printer like Canon, try doing my way and buy oe last ink before spending money on new printer.

one last thing. don't print photos from sd card. use a software like adobe lightroom to set the exposure, light, the black level, remove noisea and colors.

Try these tips and see if you can't get extra life from your ink cartridges.

Cheers!
Mike

Error message, cartridge error "cartridge


I'm not sure what ou mean by fairly new. Is it a color cartridge and have you been printing photographs? Is it an HP cartridge or a generic brand? Cartridges are used up very fast if you are printing photos. I print a lot of photos and have found that although they cost more, the cartridges made for each particular printer usually last longer and do a better job. Are the cartridge lights blinking, as they do when yo have low ink?

It could also be a problem with the cartridge. Try removing the cartridge and very carefully use a damp paper towel to gently clean the printer head of the cartridge. Do you get any ink when you do this? If you do, try putting the cartridge carefully back into place. Check the socket where the cartridge goes when you do this. Does everything seem to be in order?

Do a power reset (turn the printer off with the off button, unplug it for a full minute, then plug it back into the wall socket.) turn the printer back on. If you still have the message,
go to this site http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=1119598&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us&submit=Go%20â

You will find a video here for your printer as well as frequently asked questions, a manual download, etc.

Good luck to you.

Poor photo printing quality with new color cartridge


Shaking these cartridges does nothing except give you a little exercise. If this is a brand new HP cartridge you are having problems with I would return it to the store you purchased it from. HP brand cartridges should not give you these problems right out of the box. The print defects you are seeing are due to a dried up or clogged print head. If you like you can try hydrating the print head on a water soaked paper towel until the ink starts flowing, but there's a risk you will cross contaminate the colors.

Use of 852 and 855 cartridge in hp 6210 officejet printer


This quite often happens with CLONE cartridges and happens very infrequent with original cartridges.

The cause is the ink level chip used in clones is quite often a very cheap chinese copy and very prone to failure or misalignment

Either way take them back and get them changed is my advice

Perform a semi-full reset on the all-in-one by following the steps below

Unplug the power cord from the back of the unit ( without turning off the unit ) .
4
Now press the # and 6 key together , while holding these keys down plug in the power cord back into the unit .
5
Do not release the keys after a few seconds u will find the hp logo or bars moving across the screen .wait while the unit turns off.
6
after one minute turn on the prnter . it will go into alligment phase > let it finish .
7
after its done > try to make a copy .

8 Allow the all-in-one to re-initialize. This may take a minute or two.
9 If prompts appear in the all-in-one display to set the front panel language and country settings, perform the steps to set this information.

Let me know if this helps.

HP 1510 - Photo Paper Jams


Hi, try using HP brand photo paper, HP makes their special photo printers and special photo paper for them.
The surface of the back of the HP's paper is rough, like sandpaper to avoid the paper being jammed in the cheap loading mechanism of their actual printers.
