    How to check the ink level onC4480 printer


    To check the ink levels from the HP Photosmart Software
    1. In the HP Solution Center, click Settings, point to Print Settings, and then click Printer Toolbox.
    NOTE: You can also open the Printer Toolbox from the Print Properties dialog box. In the Print Properties dialog box, click the Features tab, and then click the Printer Services button.
    The Printer Toolbox appears.
    2. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab.
    The estimated ink levels for the print cartridges appear.

    Or

    Print a self-test report
    1. Load A4 unused plain white paper into the input tray.
    2. Press and hold the Cancel button and then press the Start Copy Color button.
    The product prints a self-test report, which might indicate the source of the printing problem.
    3. Make sure the test patterns show a complete grid and the thick color lines are complete.
    • If more than a few lines in a pattern are broken, this might indicate a problem with the nozzles. You might need to clean the print cartridges.
    • If the black line is missing, faded, streaked, or shows lines, this might indicate a problem with the black or photo print cartridge in the right slot.
    • If any of the color lines are missing, faded, streaked, or show lines, this might indicate a problem with the tri-color print cartridge in the left slot.

    1. First, check your cartridges. HP cannot guarantee the quality of remanufactured or refilled cartridges.
    2. Second, make sure your paper is not causing the problem. Paper that does not accept ink well can cause your images to smear or bleed. Plain paper is not the best choice for high-density graphics. Click here to see how to pick the best paper for your project .
    3. If the paper is not the problem and you are using genuine HP cartridges, print a clean test to see if the printer and cartridges are functioning properly. Load the printer with clean, plain, white paper and print a clean test page. To see how to print a clean test page, see your printer's User's Guide , or see HP Deskjet Printers - How To Print Internal Tests , or HP All-in-One Product Family - Printing Self-Test Reports .
    4. Evaluate the clean test page. Different printers produce different pages, but you should recognize elements from the examples below on your test page. In general, cartridge and printer problems are indicated by streaks, missing colors, or wrong colors.
      • Examples from a good printer and cartridges (your test page may not look exactly like this): Figure 1: Solid colors that match color dots on cartridge labelc00059224.gif Figure 2: Pattern unbroken, or broken in only a few placesc00059225.gif

        c00059227.gif If your test page looks more like the good examples above than the bad examples shown in the next two sections below, the printer and cartridges are probably not causing the problem. Click here to continue troubleshooting .

        c00059233.gif

        Figure 7: Color completely missing (magenta pattern missing below)c00290899.gif If your test page looks like these examples, you probably have a cartridge that is empty, has clogged nozzles, or dirty contacts. Click here to continue troubleshooting .

Your monitor may not display the colors properly). c00059234.gif c00059235.gif If your test page looks like these examples, you probably have a cartridge in which the inks have mixed.

    Lines on print. There's are three lines on picture print only. Can't see the line on document. It's about 1/4 inch wide and going throught top to bottom.


    Have ou gone into your menus. Into troubleshooting, then image quality.
    You will want to run both the eliminate light stripes and eliminate smears procedures. that will purge the print head, blow air through the jets and hopefully resolve the problem. I do believe the 8550 has a Jet Substitutin procedure where you can do a workaround and make other jets make up for the light areas.
    here are some directions, Will forward more

    1. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button on the Control Panel to select [Troubleshooting] on the Display Screen, and then press the [OK] button.
    2. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Print Quality Problems], and then press the [OK] button.
    3. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Troubleshooting Print Quality Page], and then press the [OK] button.
    4. Evaluate the 'Light Stripes Test' page for missing printhead jets, such as missing Cyan, Magenta, Yellow or Black color bars. The 'Light Stripes Test' page is the last page of the Troubleshooting Print Quality Page that printed.

      WARNING: To avoid injury, do not touch the sharp metal strip attached to the clear rubber wiper blade in the Maintenance Kit.

    5. Use a clean lint-free cloth or a new paper coffee filter to gently clean the maintenance unit's clear rubber wiper blade, use only a wiping motion across the entire length of the wiper blade, and then empty the waste tray. A dirty maintenance kit wiper blade can cause white lines and weak or missing printhead jets.


    6. 8500-wiper-blade-clean.jpg

    7. Repeat step 3 to reprint the Troubleshooting Print Quality Pages. If there are no missing or partially missing color bars then the print quality problem has been resolved. If there are missing or partially missing color bars then the printhead cleaning procedure will need to be performed. Continue with the next section.
    To clean the printhead using the basic eliminate light stripes procedure:
    1. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button on the Control Panel to select [Troubleshooting] on the Display Screen, and then press the [OK] button.
    2. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Print Quality Problems], and then press the [OK] button.
    3. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Eliminate Light Stripes], and then press the [OK] button.
    4. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Basic], and then press the [OK] button. The printer will perform a head cleaning, which will take about five minutes. The printer will then print a cleaning page and a light stripes test page.
    5. Repeat steps 1 - 4 one more time. If there are no weak or missing jets then the print quality problem has been resolved. If there are still weak or missing jets after two basic light stripe cleanings, continue with step 6.

      NOTE: Do not try the Advanced Eliminate Light Stripes Cleaning mode without performing two basic cleanings first.

      To clean the printhead using the advanced eliminate light stripes procedure:

    6. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Advanced], and then press the [OK] button.
    7. Select the missing jet color and number. If necessary, check the light stripes test page to determine the color and jet number of the missing jet.

      NOTE: Only perform the advanced light stripe cleaning once. If weak or missing jets still persist, continue with step 8.


    8. Print the Troubleshooting Print Quality Page. Evaluate the Light Stripes Test page for missing printhead jets, such as missing Cyan, Magenta, Yellow or Black color bars. If necessary, perform the basic eliminate light stripes procedure one more time. If the Advanced Eliminate Light Stripes procedure does not resolve the weak or missing jets, perform the Enable Jet Substitution Mode. See the Related Items below.

    1. Press the Menu/Set key.
    2. Press the up or down navigation key until TEST PRINT appears on the LCD.
    3. Press Fax Start. The DCP/MFC begins printing the Print Quality Test Sheet.
    4. By reviewing this Test Sheet, you can determine if the print quality or alignment needs improvement or adjustment.
    StepA - Checking the print quality:
    1. The display will read "IS STEP "A" OK?" 1.YES 2. NO.
      Before choosing YES or NO, closely examine the print quality of the four color blocks that are formed by short diagonal lines on the Test Sheet.
      If all lines are clear and visible, press 1 (YES) and proceed to StepB. If you can see missing short lines, press 2 (NO).

    2. The display will then ask you if the print quality is OK for each color. Press 2(NO) for any color with the problem.

    3. The display will then show START CLEANING? 1.YES 2. NO.
      Press 1(YES) and the DCP/MFC will start cleaning the color ink cartridges.

    4. After the cleaning is finished, press Fax Start. The DCP/MFC will print another Print Quality Test Sheet.

    5. If you can see missing short lines in any of the four color blocks press 2 (NO) and repea the quality check and cleaning process. Repeat this procedure at least 5 times if print quality remains a problem. If short lines are still missing after the fifth cleaning and test print, replace the necessary ink cartridges. If the print quality of the 4 color blocks is OK, press 1 (YES).
    StepB - Setting the Alignment:
    1. The display will then read "IS STEP "B" OK?".

    2. Examine the 600 DPI and 1200 DPI test prints on the Print Quality Test Sheet. If the number 5 sample of both the 600 DPI and 1200 DPI most closely matches the 0 sample, press 1(YES).
      If one of the other samples is a better match for the 0 sample, press 2 (NO). The display will then prompt you to select the sample that most closely matches the 0 sample for 600 DPI and then 1200 DPI.

    3. Print another Print Quality Test Sheet by following the steps provided at the top of this page and check it.

    4. Press Stop/Exit.

    Horizontal colored lines through grayscale printed photos


    Hi George,

    It sound's like an ink-feed issue:

    1) Dirty heads, even after cleaning
    2) No-ink or poor quality ink
    3) Damaged head: some are part of the cartridge, some are not
    4) Air bubbles in ink

    The test page is typically not as hi-res nor as saturated as a
    photo print. The hi-res photo puts the greatest demand on the print head.

    The color lines you see are actually lines of missing color,
    where the head has failed to deposit ink, so one or two primary
    colors are missing from the complete picture.

    For example missing yellow will make a blue line.
    Missing magenta will make a green line
    Missing cyan will make a red line.... etc..

    Clean the heads again and again, print again and again,
    hoping to flush the system.

    BUT, keep in mind that cleaning wastes huge amounts of
    ink and tiny little cartridges of ink cost more than many new printers.

    Horizontal lines in pictures


    If you are using original cartridges then there should not be a problem. The horizontal lines come from the cartridge. Can you pinpoint if it is a color or black line that is missing? My guess is that during the alignment procedure, you are asked to choose a number or letter that corresponds to picture of a the lines that show the best alignment. If you did this correctly, may I ask how many pictures you printed before seeing that line. Is it on the first print or 10th printing? Cuz if it is on the 5th or more full color picture, then the problem is that you you really have the wrong printer. The F380 capacity for printing full color pictures is miniscule. 1 ml per color. So usually after the 3rd color picture, the ink starts to run out. Let me know if this helps.
