Remove the ink and check to make sure that you removed the sticky tape tab from the bottom of each cartridge. If you have then check the carriage where the ink sits for any dry or caked on ink. You can wash this away with alcohol and a cotton swab. Finally check the number on the old ink and make sure that it matches the number on the new ink. Just because the ink fits in the printer does not mean it will work.

My HP C4780 PRINTER WILL PRINT A TEST PAGE BUT NOTHING ELSE. How do I get it to print?


Check the settings in Windows Print Manager.

Make sure that the paper quality matches what is in the printer. If set to glossy, minimal ink is deposited on the page. Also, check the print quality - draft quality provides a minimal amount of ink as well.

Changed ink, now display panel is blank and nothing prints


You need to change your black ink cartridge so that they cannot print. Just check the ink level of your printer then replace the cartridge if they're needed. Make sure that the cartridge you have change are the same and compatible with your printer. Because if they are not compatible with your printer it will not recognize the cartridge.

Many printers require you to print a test page and go through a process to align the new cartridge. If you haven't done this I would suggest this as your first step. This will confirm if the printer is working.

If still no joy, disconnect printer from computer, uninstall it then reinstall it. Can often save hours of messing using this method.

I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Page blank when printed


remove the ink cartridges and use a qtip dipped in rubbing alcohol and GENTLY clean the printhead on the cartridge. Reinsert and try printing again. If it prints anything at all, keep going till it becomes normal. If still nothing, replace the ink cartridges.

I have ink left in cartriges and the printer makes all the noise of printing but prints nothing. Paper comes out blank i just got the ink filled and trying to print out didn't work


It sounds to me like you don't replace the cartridges, but have the ink refilled in the cartridges? This can only be done so many times until the cartridge jets become plugged and therefore can no longer print. You can try appling alcohol to a q-tip and cleaning the cartridge's jets where the ink comes out, but most likely, you will need to purchase new cartridges and start over.

Printing but blank pages coming out .


Take the ink cartridge out of the printer. On the bottom of the cartridge, there's a copper/gold surface with bumps and holes. Take a napkin or peice of paper and rub it on this surface. This serves two purposes - if there's any dried ink or blockage, it will help clean it, and it's a test to see if there's any ink left in the cartridge. On a normal ink cartridge, rubbing paper on the bottom would cause some ink to smear onto the paper. If nothing wet comes out, the ink cartridge is dried out or empty. You'll need to replace it.

Printing blank


If not printing anything go to printer properties and print a test page. If nothing visible replace cartridge. Cartridges known for drying up when not frequently used. Use cotton swab with rubbing alchohol to clean any dried ink from ports and reciever.
