Hp officejet 6500 e709n print quality poor even after replacing print head


For severe print quality/missing color issues there could be an air bubble/air gaps in the printer ink lines or a portion of the PRINTHEAD is dry, so you should first perform a Clean PrintHead procedure from your printer control panel.
NOTE: If one or more the colors were previously dry fired during printing (i.e. if you continued printing using only a few colors to one, air may have been accidently ingested into the ink lines between the cartridge(s) and PRINTHEAD. To recover from this problem, you may have to run the Clean Printhead procedure 2-3 times.
If a problem persists then it is suggested to review the steps outlined on the following HP 920 support pages, including printhead removal/printer cleaning and service station cleaning. It is suggested you refer to printer manufacturer instructions first as the Inkjet411 procedures are provided for general guidance purposes only. A dirty service station can cause poor image quality and/or ink cross-contamination between different colors:

If the problem still cannot be corrected, then the PRINTHEAD may be dry and may need to be flushed (i.e. with warm water as it could have dried out, but this is a function of how much you print). Remove and soak in hot water for 5 minutes...thoroughly dry printhead prior to re-installing. Retest.
For more information please visit:
http://inkjet411.retailinkjet.com/?page_id=856
Worst case scenario the PRINTHEAD may simply be electrically damaged or at end-of-life (typically fails between 3,000 and 5,000 printed pages) and may require replacement, usually accompanied by error messages like Incompatible Printhead or Ink Delivery/System Failure. NOTE: The PRINTHEAD will eventually fail in time. For more information on the how the PRINTHEAD works, watch the video here: http://inkjet411.retailinkjet.com/?page_id=1983
To verify Printhead performance, run the Tap 41 diagnostic test, (Pen Status: Pen OK).....for printer model instructions please visit:

I have an hp officejet d135. It has knew ink jets and is hooked up. When I try to print the ink won't come out and the window says it's empty. Do I have a toner and if so where is it?


Your printer has a print head under the ink cartridges. You can try a cleaning, and if this does not fix the issue, you may need to replace the print head .



Clean Printheads function
To activate the Clean Printheads function from the front panel:

  1. From the front panel, press MENU.
  2. Press the RIGHT or LEFT ARROW until Status and Maintenance displays.
  3. Press ENTER
  4. Press the RIGHT or LEFT ARROW until Clean Printheads displays.
  5. Press ENTER
After a few minutes the HP Officejet D series will automatically complete the printhead cleaning operation.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Thanks, Joe
