If cleaning does not help ,the heads have stopped working

usually no amount of cleaning via the software helps, but you might try soaking the heads in really hot water for a while then using a soft brush to wipe them gently,wipe dry ,then try cleaning a couple of times through the software .

however it sounds like you need to replace the ink cartridge.
if i have been helpful please rate my efforts.

good luck

    do an alignment test in the printer software, however

    it may be that your printer has the print head in the printer and not on the ink cartridge,in which case changing the ink will not fix it ,looks like a new printer on the way.

You require Norton AntiVirus from a disc as a clean boot will be required due to the virus "hiding" in the RAM.

How do you clean HP print heads


  1. Cleaning a printer's printheads is an easy process. Here's how it works (in Windows). Click the Start button (or in Vista the Windows icon) at the lower left corner of your screen.
  2. Click on Control Panel. Next, choose Printers and Other Hardware, and then View Installed Printers or Fax Printers.
  3. When the Printer page opens, right click on your printer's name, and choose Printing Preferences.
  4. For the Pixma MP530, the Printing Preferences has five tabs across the top; choose Maintenance. Again, most printers should have a very similar set of options.
  5. The first button is for cleaning the printheads. You'll have to choose which printheads you want to clean (the Pixma inkjet has five cartridges). The best bet is to choose All Colors.
  6. Make sure the printer is turned on and that there's some paper loaded, then click on Execute.
  7. The printer will print out a pattern with a grid along the top and six bars of different colors. Two images will display on your monitor that you can compare to the printed image. In one, the grid and colors are sharp and clear; in the other, some of the grid boxes are missing and the colors are striped.
  8. If the printout matches the sharp, clear image, simply click Exit and you're done.
  9. If the printout has missing grid boxes or stripes, then click Cleaning. Once that's done, you'll repeat the whole process so you can ensure the cleaning was completely successful. It may take two cleanings if your printheads are really clogged.
  10. If, after two cleanings, you're still getting a poor result, there's a Deep Cleaning option on the Maintenance tab that should do the job.

When the printer starts to print, one line gets printed- then the paper sticks. The printer says "Clear the Carrier Stall". what does that mean?


Paper Jam...try to clean your printer, get a can of dust off (compressed air) and blow it out. Then take a damp (unplug printer first) and clean the paper rollers. Keep an eye out for anything sticking to the rollers, ink mist build up, or sticker from labels, or just glue from stickers.
Hope this helps you, please leave a rating.

Light printing..need to clean


Depening on which printer it is , but normally all vendors include a system utilty with their printers to do head alignment, calibration and cleaning, some have what is referred to as a deep cleaning cycle as well, which does consume a bit more ink but does sometimes get rid of very light printing. If nothing else has changed in preferences such as print in high speed draft mode(which will give lighter than normal printing) then do a few cleaning cycles and possibly a head re-alignment.

Our Photosmart 7960 puts horizontal colored lines through all the photos we print out....What can we do to fix this?


I don't know if that printer has a cleaning routine on it, or not. If it does (check your documentation) I'd do that first. If that fails to clear things up, you may want to try to clean the print cartridges by hand. If you still have a problem, you'll probably need to get some new cartridges.
Hope this helps answer your question.
