Question about HP OfficeJet D135 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Is it just the printheads?? or could it be something else?

I just got an HP D135 dat hasn't been used in a long time. I got new ink cartridges and cleaned the printheads, but all the printing & test pages still came out blank.

Now it says to replace all 4 printheads. But I just want to make sure before I make the purchase that it is only the printheads that are bad... I don't want to buy the printheads and then get stuck with them if it's another part not working.. Should the paper be coming out completely blank if the printheads are bad? Could it be something else not working?? Thx!

Hi There
Ok try tois first.
Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

SOURCE: Officejet d135 says bad black printhead- Replace the pentagon --

To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

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

The printer will not print black. I have changed the cartridge #14 multiple times and do not know what the problem is.


The following may work: remove all the ink supplies. Remove the printhead and soak it for about 5 minutes in 0.5" of very hot water. Gently blot the printhead on a soft damp paper towel to remove the excess water, then replace in the printer and then reinstall the ink supplies.

Regardless of the age of colour cartridge, the error messages colour ink out and cartridge expired keep being displayed and I'm unable to print


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink or toner cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridges that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks or toner causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead or photo conductors.
If you are using factory new ink or toner cartridges, then please call the manufacturer’s Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Officejet d135 - "Supply Expired" error message


HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.

Clean the copper contacts of the ink cartridge and the printhead wih the cotton swab and then try. Moreover in the printer there is an option to clean the printheads and ink carts. Later ty to print the h/w test page from the printer, if it prints fine then in the computer, righth click the printer icon and left click properties,in the color settings check if there is an option print in grayscale ... if thatoption is checked then uncheck the option.. and then print the test apge from the computer. If while priting the h/w test page it does not print in color then either upgrade the printer or replace the printer as the contacts of the printer ink carts slot are corrupted.
