Printer: constant check cartridge


Make sure that ALL cartridges are good. Then make sure that the printer driver is properly installed. Make sure that the cable and connections are good.

If all that fails then you have a problem with your printer.

Step one: Complete the alignment process If you have already installed new print cartridges, follow these steps to complete the alignment process.
  1. After installing a new print cartridge, wait at least 20 seconds for the print cartridge alignment process to start.
  2. Wait for the print cartridge alignment process to fully complete.
  3. Make sure that the alignment page has printed on plain, white paper that has no other printing on it. If you need to create a new alignment page, load the tray with letter or A4 unused plain white paper and turn the product off and on again to create the page.
If an alignment page does not print when the product is turned on or off, the issue is resolved. If an alignment page continues to print when the product is turned on or off, you should replace the cartridges with new HP cartridges. Continue to Step two: Remove the print cartridges. Step two: Remove the print cartridges Follow the steps below to remove the cartridges. NOTE: When you remove and install the same print cartridge, the unit will not align the print cartridge as the unit remembers the alignment values for that print cartridge.
  1. Press the Power button to turn the product on. The Power button is lit when the unit is on. Figure 1: Power button lit c01336350.gif
  2. Make sure that the paper tray is down, and letter or A4 unused plain white paper is loaded in the paper tray.
  3. Lower the access door until it stops. Make sure that the print carriage moves to the right side. Figure 2: Lower the access door c01336351.gif
  4. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then using your thumb, lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. Figure 3: Print carriage c01336352.gif
    • If replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left.
    • If replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right.

  5. Pull the print cartridge toward you and out of its slot.
Step three: Install the new print cartridge

If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product. Cause The product aligns the print cartridges every time at cartridge installation or replacement to ensure the highest-quality prints. The alignment page continues to print when the product is turned on or off, or when a print job is started, for any of the reasons below.
  • The automatic alignment process is not complete.
  • The ink cartridges are not properly installed.
  • One of the ink cartridges is defective.
  • One of the ink cartridges is low or out of ink. Black and all three colors must be available.
  • Protective tape on a new ink cartridge has not been removed.
  • Contacts on the ink cartridge are not meeting the contacts in the carriage correctly.
  • Cartridge is remanufactured or refilled. Refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges may have been damaged during the refilling process or have clogged ink nozzles.
  • The product needs to be serviced.

I have just installed a new black cartridge and when I try to print the printer says 'left cartridge missing'. It is not missing and is installed correctly. If I override the command the print


Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and please try to print a printer self test.
Good Luck!!!!

My hp photosmart 5514 won't print. I put in new ink-black and color- and it goes through the motions, but the page is empty


I just had this exact problem on my HP 5514. Black won't print after running out of black ink. New cartridge no good.
I tried everything-no good. I suspected the pinholes in the printhead were clogged with dried ink because I didn't change cartridge in time.
The fix that worked perfectly was when I hacksaw top off old black cartridge & removed all foam wicks so now I had a funnel(can see clear thru). I installed the cartridge & filled it with alcohol, printed page & did head clean; then printed few more pages. Problem cleared almost immediately. I then soaked up extra alcohol inside cartridge with paper towel. Removed modified cartridge & installed good one. I guess this could be done for colors as well. I don't know if this is a proper procedure, but it sure worked well for me.

How do i switch of align page when installing a new cartridge as it waste paper printing a test page everytime you switch it on. This is for a HP 1300 series


http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SupportTaskIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=238320&taskId=110

Click on the 'Automatically check to see if your driver needs updating (MS Windows Only).' box in order to check for latest updates to your driver.

Unfortunately, I looked over the unexpected page output and it didn't list this problem as one of them.

Does it really print a test page every time you switch it on? Or does it only print a test page after installing a new cartridge?

Definitely, the alignment page should be printed everytime a new cartridge is installed due to variations in manufacturing of print cartridges will throw off the alignment everytime a new cartridge is installed.

I'm not sure about the test page, though.

Good luck on this modification of standard operating of hp printers.

Put in new cartridge and unit will not print. Goes through all of the motions but doesn't print. Printed many pages before "low on ink" message. Why does it not print now?


It may be caused by some issues. Check:

* Did you remove the plastic from the connections from the cartridge as the instructions indicates?

* Is the cartridge connector from the printer ok?

* Is the cartridge correctly installed?

* It's a new cartridge? I mean, NEW. Not refilled one or a cartridge that expired two years ago.

* Try running one or two "Clean printer head" procedure to see if ink flows.

Good luck !

Canon MP470: "Print Head is not installed. Install Print Head"


Some printer brands have a cute scheme that reads a "new" cartridge as good, but the refilled one has a small fuse link that is burned out by the printer. Try factory new cartridges. Unplug the printer power for a bit to reset the printer.

them.

its label, slide the print cartridge into the slot on the right. The label for the slot is black with a solid white square and a solid white pentagon.your HP All-in-One
