SOURCE: I have just finished replacing

If you have used a compatible cart, did you remove the tape from the vent hole?

If you have a genuine cart and feel sure the cart is not faulty them read my previous posts on intensive head cleaning.

If the head cleaning has little or no effect then you may need this following rescue kit to resolve a know problem with many of the CX range:

SOURCE: Problem with ink coming out on paper

Replace the toner cartridge with a brand new one. There's no such thing as refilling toner cartridges. When it's empty, the drum unit is finished and it should be replaced, not refilled. Remember that the drum unit is sensitive to light, and will also be damaged if exposed to a great amount of light over a perid.

If a new cartridge does not solve your problem, remove the cartridge and check out the charge roller. It's located in the upper part of the "cartridge-room". It's a grey roller. lower the front cover the get easy access to it.

If it looks nice and clean, just leave it. If it is dirty and smutsy, you should remove it and try to clean it with hot water. If it is damaged in any way, it should be replaced.

Still problems ?

Check out the fixing unit. Remove the fixing unit and look at the the big rollers that put out the paper. If they look nice, put the fixing unit back in. If they are burned and dirty, replace the fixing unit.

Good Luck.

Can't keep the yellow ink flowing - stops printing shortly after cleaning. I have cleaned it 5-6 times. Prints yellow right after cleaning then color fades out half way through first page.

Hi! Ok, Is you cartridge refilled? if yes then your yellow tank in the cartridge is maybe out. You can try this: Take a paper napkin and lightly and slowly touch the cartridge head where the color come out. If your cartridge is ok you should see some trace on the napkin. Try this a few time and your ink should be more and more be visible on the napkin.
If no trace then you have a problem with the cartridge head.
I hope it helped to you. Any question post me a message on

I installed new ink and printer shows clear paper jam does not appear to have paper jam

It seems simple enough, but this is one of the most effective ways of fixing printer cartridge error. Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached.

To reattach the cartridge check the following steps :

turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head.

Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report.

Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

How to refill ink in hp blck cartridge

  • Purchase an ink refill kit at an office supply store. (Staples, Walmart, and Costco all carry this inexpensive kit. It usually costs about half the price of an average printer cartridge.)
  • Gather your kit, a roll of paper towels, and some clear scotch tape together on a large flat working surface, a table or desk.
  • 3Remove the empty cartridge from your printer. (Remember to close your printer lid or door while you are working.)
  • 4Cover your hands with a pair of disposable plastic gloves while you work with the messy ink.
  • 5Take a paper towel and fold it in half twice. Work over the paper towel to catch any leaking ink.
  • 6Place the empty cartridge on it.
  • 7Read the instruction manual included with the refill kit to learn how to refill your particular type of cartridge. (The following instructions are just a general guide).
  • 8Locate the fill holes on the top of the cartridge. The depressions can be felt by rubbing your finger across the label.
  • 9Use a sharp pencil to pierce the refill holes in the top of the ink cartridge. (Correct places can also be found in the kit instructions).
  • 10In addition to black, there are three colors of ink: magenta, cyan, and yellow. Follow the kit instructions on which hole to insert each color OR push a toothpick into the holes to identify the colours as markings on the printer cartridge are sometimes there to fool you into putting the wrong colours into the cartridge ink chambers.
  • 11Insert the long needle on the refill ink bottle into the correct hole.
  • 12Slowly, add the ink. Carefully watch to be sure that you do not over-fill.
  • 13Stop quickly as soon as you see a bit of ink oozing out of the hole. Without letting go of the bottle, slowly release the air, sucking a little ink back out of the ink cartridge, before you remove the needle completely.
  • 14Carefully daub the cartridge contacts on the paper towel, you should see a splotch of the ink leaking out onto the paper towel.
  • 15Cover the hole with a small piece of clear scotch tape. (This works better than the seal dots included in the kit.) Make sure that no ink is leaking out of the top holes. (That's where the clear tape comes in handy.) Be careful not to cross contaminate the colors.
  • 16Repeat steps 11-15 for each ink color.
  • 17After you have refilled all three colors, carefully blot (don't wipe or rub) the cartridge printhead on a folded piece of paper towel. You may need to do this several times. Do this until it stops bleeding and you see an even stripe of three colors showing up on the towel.
  • 18If the blot shows the colors either faded or not at all, blot on wet paper towel and again on dry, to get the ink flowing.
  • 19Replace the ink cartridge into the printer. Never, ever install a leaking print cartridge.
  • 20Immediately print something, anything, just to get the ink flowing. Print several test pages, preferable photos with a lot of different colors.
  • 21Follow the cleaning or priming cycles for your specific printer.
