Re: aligning printer heads

Same problem with my printer, called tech guy charged 100 bucks for nothing. Actually changed the cartridges. All cartridges have to be new and check the date on the cartridges, if installing 2006 cartridges, just use all of the same date , if using 2007 just use that date. It should work fine after that.

Many printers need the heads aligned once you install them. Some printers will do a high level alignment however to properly allign them you should use the tools section for your printer and click the align cartridge/heads selection. If you don't see the maintenance/tools tab when you open your printer from control panel, you may be using the generic Microsoft driver and need to install the drivers from the manufacture.

K550 printer not printing Black

hi there is a simple solution to your problem take out the print head place just the jets( where the ink comes out) in warm water for a few seconds while it is in the water use a syringe over each breathe hole at the top of the print head (one at a time) and lightly push air into the head. this process clears any ink clog and frees up the print head and allows it to print propely

HP OfficeJet 6110 Prints very slow then aborts about 1/3rd way through print

I identified this issue with my Officejet 6110xi All-in-One as firmware corruption. Attempting to install the supplied firmware update gave the error that "no hp device connected to the computer would benefit from it at this time." Attempted to power down the printer using #9 keystroke and got "FULL RESET" message, but problem of extremely slow printing and erratic behavior of the print heads persisted. I solved the problem by putting the printer outside in cold weather for two (2) days. This frequently resets firmwares with software corruption back to their embedded EEPROM state. Hooked the printer back up and worked fine. If cold weather is not available you could try other creative methods of cooling the device, just use a plastic bag and with ideally some drying packets thrown in to prevent excessive moisture buildup in the cold environment. The colder it is the faster the firmware resets.
