Horizontal pink lines on print every inch or so.


Do the magenta lines go outside the picture into the white border? If so, the print head has gone bad, and the cost to replace a print head is more than a new printer.

Here's a link to the user manual.

According to the message, there is debris in the printer such as a paperclip or torn paper. Clear this debris from the printer and it should clear the message. Refer to page 107 of the document.

Sincerely,

HP C6180 all in one printer My printer will not print light magenta and magenta, all the other colours are fine. Tried everything Any suggestions Thanks Paul


This problem seems to be with the printheads of the printer If magenta ink cartridge has enough ink inside it and if print heads are damaged then you need to replace this printer.....

But still if u want you can follow the below mentioned steps :

If it is not printing in light magenta and magenta than you can try the below mentioned steps :

Step 1 - First clean print heads from the menu of the printer. You can look for clean printhead option under printers menu - Tools - Clean Print Heads.
Now print and see if it is printing or not. If issue is not resolved then move on

Step 2 - Check if your magenta ink cartridge & Light magenta ink cartridge has ink in it or not...if it is empty or if has very low ink then.....
replace it with a new ink cartridge......and now it is going to aling the printer....While it aligns it is going to make noise and will show a message printer aligning or alignment in process.
While it aligns dont touch the keys of the printer or dont interrupt in between the process otherwise hardware of printer might get damaged and you have to replace the whole printer
...and just wait...till the printer display shows the regular menu...

Note : - * During Alignment printer is going to consume more ink, so make sure you have enough ink in all the cartridges or otherwise it does not have enough ink in it
alignment process will not be completed properly.

Steps 3 - If it prints an alignement page then it is ok, check if all the colours on the alignment page and if all the colours are fine then ur issue is resolved...
for verifying you can print another document.If it does not print any alignment page then you can try printing an alignment page from the printers manually from the printers menu.

Now if it has resolved the issue then it is fine or else last you can try re-setting the printer.


Re-Setting the printer :


- Press and hold the "*" key.
- Press the "#" key and release both keys.
- Display should say "Enter Special Key Combo" then release the keys and press "1", "2" and "3" buttons in sequence.
- then you will get few options, now look for an option that says System Information or System Menu
- Press "OK" on System menu and look for an option Semi full re-set
- Press "OK" Button.Now printer will shutdown automatically and will turn on automatically after few seconds..as it is going to align the printer..
- Now it will make noise for few minutes wait till then and when you see regular screen on display then print a document and see if issue is resolved or not.

If issue is not resolved then you need to replace the printer. If it is in warranty then contact Hp customer care and they will replace it for free.

Colour problem


If the printer gives magenta instead of red you have a problem with one of the other colors. Magenta needs other colors to print red. Print a cofiguration print and check witch color is bad or missing. Replace the cartrridge of the missing/bad color

I'm getting a 98.15.02 error from an HP 4000. Any


Hi this what HP say about this.

Explanation A backup printmode is being used due to bad printhead quality or health, as a result there is lower performace in printing. Recommended action One or more printheads have too many nozzles out and should be replaced. Replace the faulty printhead. You may have to print the Image Quality Diagnostics print in order to identify the faulty printhead. Try printing a square made up of each colour, so one Cyan, one Magenta etc to indentify which head is causing the problem. then you can soak the head in IPA to clear out any dried ink, this may stop you having to buy another head. Also please please DO NOT use compatible inks as they are damaging to your machine even if they claim not to be, think about it HP would never sell the patent to their inks it wouldnt make sense they would loose money, so allways use originals.

Colors are not printing the acutal color


It all depends on the meaning of 'not properly'.

Try creating a document with four different squares, or words, of these colours: yellow, magenta, cyan and black. If all of them print (albeit not with the correct shades) it is probably an ICM driver error. But my guess is that only one of those four colors will print badly, due to a defective color cartridge.
The OKI 5150 makes all perceivable colours using cyan, magenta, yellow and black toners, so if one of these malfunctions, the resulting colors will lack the required shade of, say, yellow, and will appear to be "wrong". The yellow colour itself, of course, would simply disappear (the "yellow" you use might actually be 95% yellow and 5% cyan; then the "yellow" square will be printed as a very light shade of cyan, while the other colors - say, 95% magenta and 5% yellow - will turn out almost exact).

Try with the color test and replace any failing cartridge; if all four (almost) pure colours do print incorrectly, it's unlikely to be a cartridge problem, and we'll have to dig deeper.

If you look your print heads have a colour symbol on them and cyan is a triangle. Magnenta is a square, yellow is a circle.

Magenta ink colour


I had the same problem. Try cleaning the print heads. They tend to clog. Remove the cartridges, then remove the print head. Tilted slightly, it comes out easily. Run very warm to hot water over the print heads until they all run clear. Use a turkey baster to apply strong pressure to each head until it runs clear. Blow off the excess water with mouth or blow dryer. Insert into the printer and proceed to print. If that doesn't solve it, you might have a bad cartridge, but there isn't much that can go wrong with the cartridge. I have an ip4200 and an MP830. They have the same print heads and same cartridges. I have cleaned each twice and they work like new.
