Re: hp deskjet 5650 inkjet printer

If the new (or refilled/reman/compatible) HP 56, 57 or 58 ink cartridge refuses to print black/color and/or function at all (i.e. blinking ink error light on Deskjet 5000 series printer) or fails to complete the printer alignment following cartridge installation, then the ink cartridge either has a connectivity issue with the flexible printed circuit cable (inside unit where cartridge mates with cable), the rear cartridge contacts or cable contacts are dirty with ink residue, or the cartridge is suffering from marginal internal electrical performance. It is suggested you perform the TAP 43 (and TAP 10) DIAGNOSTIC PRINTER TEST to evaluate the ink cartridges electrical performance. Visit Inkjet411 support site to see instructional video:
NOTE: For the HP Deskjet 5000 series printer models, when you get an HP 56, 57 or 58 integrated ink cartridge refilled (i.e. currently offered at Costco or Frys today) or if you buy a remanufactured/compatible HP ink cartridge, the ink levels are not initially reset. However, continuing to use an ink cartridge which displays LOW INK alerts is permitted by the printer, simply select OK, CONTINUE or DISMISS when these alerts are observed. Now, it is possible to reset the ink levels by performing the procedure outlined on Inkjet411's site:
To clean the HP 56, 57 or 58 ink cartridges please visit the Inkjet411 site which provides recommendations on how to clean the electrical contacts, flex driver cables and how to perform a hot water flush of the cartridge nozzle plate (refer to video):

I want a software for my printer.

No Problem! Just go to and download it.

There is one thing, however. You must get THE software for YOUR Deskjet. HP lists four different models for the Deskjet 5650 series. The 5650, the 5650w, the 5652, and the 5655. The software MAY, be the same for all models of this series, but I don't take chances, and give erroneous information.
Viewing the Deskjet from the front, the model number is on the lower right side.

Here is, the page for the Deskjet 5650 Color Inkjet series, and the specific page that you choose which model you have,

I'm going to click on the top model listed, HP Deskjet 5650 Color Inkjet Printer,
as an example.
Now click on the -> Software & Driver downloads heading.
Now choose which Operating System you are using.
I see they only have the Diagnostic Utility available, if you are using Windows Vista.
If you are using Windows XP, they have the full software package available.
