How long ago was it since you last used it? Inkjet and deskjet printers don't like to sit more than a week or two without you printing anything or they dry up.
Your cartridges may have dried up on the bottom or the part that the cartridge sits in may have dried up. Take a Q-tip dipped in isopropyl alcohol and dab it a few times. Make sure it's totally try before putting your cartridge back in.

Clean print ink


Seems like the cartridge head is jammed. You can take the cartidge out and put the head for like 5 minutes in warm water then clean it gently with some tissue paper, hopefully this shall solve your problem.

5740 acts like it's printing, but no ink on paper


Since it's trying to print, the printer probably just needs cartridges. The ink can dry in the nozzles with age and disuse and clog them.

Before you splurge on new cartridges, try getting them going. (This assumes there is some ink left in them.) Take the cartridges out of the printer, wet a layer of paper towels about 1/8 inch thick, and whack the nozzles against the wet surface a few times. Check every few whacks to see if you're getting any ink flow. Repeat until you see some ink on the towels and on the nozzles, or until you decide it's futile. Often this dislodges the clogged ink and opens the nozzles, and buys some extra printing time. But you're probably going to want new ones soon anyway.

HP Deskjet 5740 I have not used my printer in some time and both cartridges are half full. It printed with the black but came out with gaps in the printing so i took the cartridge out and put it back...


it is better to change the black cartige becaue there is the jam of the ink in black cartidge. or pick out the black cartidge and clean with soft paper in the place from where color is pour. then reinstall the cartidge. i hope it will ok. otherwise, change the cartidge.

My hp deskjet 1280 will not print yellow


Hello, this is Harry from www.BusinessSpread.co.uk.
We had the exact same problem when printing, we used 3 different 78 colour ink cartages and they all said 100% full but did not work. We then had a look at the dates on the box and they were all expired so when buying ink from anywhere even PC world or Curry’s always look at the expiry date.
Today I went to PC world and purchased a new 78 ink which said expires July 2011 and it works perfectly fine.
