CpHP1160 does not print

Have not used this printer in 2 years. Installed it on my son's computer and changed cartridges. But, it does not print, some blue does print. What can I do to fix this problem.

    I have an 1160 and hate it. The problem is that the print heads clog (the ink cartridges and the print heads are separate) - and once that happens the printer works fine except it applies no ink to the paper. New heads are $40US each so a repair is a quick and easy $120. I have had a lot of HP printers - this design is the worst I have seen by ANY manufacturer.

  1. On your computer, go to "Start," "Programs," "Lexmark Series." Click "Lexmark Control Program."
  2. Step 2 Select the "Cartridges" tab. Click "Change Cartridges." The Change Cartridges screen appears, displaying the animated instructions for installing or changing cartridges. When you have finished viewing the animation, click the "Finished" button.
  3. Step 3 Remove the tape covering the print head of the new print cartridge. Insert the new print cartridge as shown in the animation.
  4. Step 4 When the "Choose Cartridges" screen appears, select the cartridge(s) you installed in your printer from the list boxes. Click the appropriate box to reset the ink levels to full. Click "OK."
  5. Step 5 The Automatic Alignment screen appears. Click "Align" to align the print cartridges for best print quality. The printer prints a page with a bi-directional alignment pattern. On the printed test page, locate the number that comes closest to forming a straight line under the bi-directional alignment pattern. Enter that number as the bi-directional alignment setting in the Alignment Cartridge dialog box. Click "OK."

Just installed a new Lexmark 2300 series ink cartridge, printer


Hello Jeanete. First off, lets make sure that you have the right cartridge model number for your Lexmark Z-2300. Your printer cartridge number should be (Number 31 for black and white). 2nd, make sure that the clear plastic tab has been removed from where the ink comes out of your cartridge to strike the paper. 3nd, make sure that you have it installed properly. This shouldn't be needed, but once you have did everything reboot PC to see if this helps...

HP Business Inkjet 1000 error detecting new cartridge


Disconnect the communication cable (USB?).

Turn off the printer, wait one minute then turn it back on,

Then press the left button on the panel, the transparent one to the left of power button. It will print a status page. Check the dates and information under each color that is failing.

The ink cartridges MAY be outdated. Printing the test and information page without the computer connected fools the machine since it can't get your computer date.

If the cartridges are outdated, then change your computer year back to 2005 or so, reconnect the printer cable and send something to print, once the printer prints it out, reset your computer to today's year.

You will need to do this procedure whenever you turns off the printer. (Disconnect cable, change computer year, print, reset computer date).

Hope this works.

Printer won't print


I have had a similar problem to this: I have had a BJC 80 for nearly 5 years and carried it around with my laptop using Win 98 and a par - par cable. It worked beautifully and successfully - so much so that when i saw a number of ink tanks going at very cheap volume prices in PC World i picked up a lot of them. Changing to an XP meant that i had to keep on using the par to par cable via a docking station but prevented my use of it with my new laptop - so when i brought it out of retirement it gave the blank printing problems yoiu described. By checking some error messages that it expected a black cartridge (which is what was installed) i found that inthe setup the software indicated it defaulted to colour cartridges. By changing this on the computer, it still printed blank pages but by changing the cartridge to colour it sprang into life when the set up asked for colour. I tried 2 other print heads which i had (3-4 years old) but still blank paper when printing to a black cartridge. I am now awaiting a new black print head carrier to see if it makes a difference. When trying with my laptop using XP and a par - usb cable it does not work at all. I have removed the sware driver for the Canon 80 and manually installed the one for the Canon 85 but no luck in printing to par - usb at this time
