Hi There

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.

Large black cartridge not recognized upon replacement for iP8720


Cheers Tom

In many cases when we place cartridge into the printer, they are not recognized, there may be many reasons why this happens, one of them is that the cartridges have dirty connectors.

The cartridge connectors are making contact with the printer, in this way as information is received and when to inject the ink, it is also who helps identify printer cartridges when they are connected.

Clean connectors cartridges helps in many cases to be recognized by the printer, it is recommended to clean something clean, and a small piece of cloth with water or isopropyl alcohol.

http://www.en.rellenadodecartuchos.com/2015/08/how-to-clean-connectors-connectors-in-ink-cartridges.html

If after cleaning the cartridge connectors, the problem persists, you should clean the connectors but in this case the printer.

For this you need to open the door that gives access to the cartridges, remove the cartridges from the printhead and then with something clean and a cloth to clean the connector head.

These are possible solutions, but when the cartridges are not recognized by the printer, there are many factors influencing the error and can carry the cartridges are not recognized.

Look electricity, place stronger cartridges - it is possible that are not making contact properly - try to open the side door of the printer, something may be wrong with cartridges.

Take time and see if does not help, write a comment, I'll be around.

HP A636 will not print yellow; tricolor cartridge is new


  • Align the print cartridge.
The printer automatically aligns the print cartridge after a new one is installed. You can also align the print cartridge at other times to ensure optimal print quality. Indications that you need to align the print cartridge manually include borderless prints with white space
along an edge, colors not printing satisfactorily, or poor print quality.


To align the print cartridge from the printer
  1. Load a sheet of HP Advanced Photo Paper in the input tray.
  2. Touch the Setup icon to display the Setup menu. For more information, see "Setup Menu" on page 16.
  3. Touch Cartridge.
  4. Touch Align Cartridge and follow the prompts.

Clean the print cartridge automatically.
If the printed pages are missing lines or dots or contain ink streaks, the print cartridge might be low on ink or need to be cleaned.
CAUTION: Clean the print cartridge only when necessary.
Unnecessary cleaning wastes ink and shortens the life of the cartridge.

  • Clean the cartridge.
Follow these steps to clean the cartridge automatically:
To clean the print cartridge from the printer,
  1. Touch the Setup icon to display the Setup menu. For more information, see "Setup Menu" on page 16.
  2. Touch Cartridge.
  3. Touch Clean Cartridge and follow the prompts.
If the documents are still missing lines or dots after cleaning, replace the print cartridge.

It could be that the cartridges are not inserted properly in the carrier or just needs cleaning. Try to remove both cartridges from the printer and manually clean the nozzles. You may refer to this article on How to Clean the Print Cartridge Nozzles and Contacts Manually. Then reinsert one cartridge first and close the cover. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error. You can also try the Clean Cartridge function on the printer by pressing the Setup button -> Maintenance -> Clean Cartridges. It will then print the clean nozzles test page. If error continues, replace the faulty cartridge.

Printer carriage stuck?


To fix cartridge errors, complete the following steps:
  1. Remove both cartridges (even if the message indicates only one cartridge). See your printer's manual or help files for specific information on removing and inserting cartridges. Most HP printers must be turned on to remove the cartridges. WARNING: Make sure to complete the procedure and reinstall the cartridges within 30 minutes. The ink in the cartridges can dry in the nozzles if the cartridge is outside of the printer for too long.
  2. Unplug the printer.
  3. Inspect the cartridges:
      If the cartridges are new, make sure the protective tape has been removed completely.Make sure the cartridges are not damaged. If the copper-colored electrical strip is torn or punctured, the cartridge must be replaced.Make sure the cartridges are compatible with the printer. See the manual for a list of compatible cartridges.
  4. Reinstall the cartridges. NOTE: HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of refilled or remanufactured cartridges.
      Make sure each cartridge is in the correct slot.Make sure the cartridge is snapped into place and the latch is closed.Close the front cover and plug the printer back in.
  5. If the steps above do not fix the problem, follow the procedure below to clean the cartridge and electrical contacts:
    1. Gather cleaning supplies:
        Clean distilled water. Use bottled or filtered water if distilled water is not available.Clean cotton swabs or any soft, lint-free material (coffee filters work well).
    2. Remove both cartridges.
    3. Unplug the printer.
    4. Lightly moisten the lint-free cleaning material with clean water.
    5. Clean the cartridge contacts. Avoid touching the nozzles. Replace the cleaning material if it gets dirty. Figure 1: Cartridge nozzles and contactsc00059236.gif 1 - Nozzles 2 - Contacts Figure 2: Cartridge nozzles and contactsc00059237.gif 1 - Nozzles 2 - ContactsIf your cartridge doesn't look exactly like one of the illustrations above, locate the contacts by looking for an area with a number of small copper squares. The illustration below shows some representative cartridge contacts. Figure 3: Cartridge contactsc00059238.jpg
    6. Using a new swab, clean the cartridge contacts inside the printer (the print carriage). The illustrations below show contact locations for some representative carriages. If your carriage does not look like either of the pictures below, try to locate copper contacts inside of the printer that would touch the contacts on the cartridge when the cartridge is installed. Figure 4: Carriage contactsc00059239.gif Figure 5: Carriage contactsc00059240.gif
    7. Allow all the contacts to dry for at least five minutes, or dry them with a clean swab, then reinstall the cartridges.
    8. Close the front cover and plug the printer back in.
  6. If the steps above have not solved the problem, repeat them.
  7. If the error still occurs after repeating all the steps, replace the cartridges. If you have already replaced the cartridges once without solving the problem, contact HP. The printer might need to be serviced.

  3. Remove the cartridge and place it on a piece of paper with the nozzle plate facing up. NOTE: Clean the contacts quickly so that the cartridge is not outside of the product for more than 30 minutes. If the cartridge is outside of the product for too long, the ink can dry and clog the nozzles.
  4. Unplug the product from the electrical outlet.
  5. Dip a swab in the clean water and squeeze it to remove most of the moisture. The swab should be only slightly damp.
  6. Clean the cartridge contacts. CAUTION: Do not touch the ink nozzles. Figure 6: Cartridge contactsc00832021.gif

Cartridge error 1203


First of all, please verify each cartridge carrier has an ink cartridge :
  1. Check to make sure the left cartridge carrier contains a black or photo ink cartridge.
  2. Check to make sure the right carrier contains a color ink cartridge.
  3. Remove each cartridge and examine it to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the contacts and the print head.
  4. Replace each cartridge in the proper carrier.
Step 2 :

Wicking the cartridges and cleaning the contacts on the back of the cartridge should be performed if the nozzle clean was performed and the quality was not satisfactory.
Wicking the Cartridge
  1. Ensure the printer is powered on.
  2. Lift the scanner unit.
  3. Open the cartridge latches and remove the cartridges from the carrier (Figure 1).

  6. printer1.jpg
    Figure 2: Proper Cleaning Direction
    new_note.jpg Note: Never wipe the cartridges from side to side, as this causes cross-contamination in color cartridges.
Cleaning the Contacts

  2. cartridge_back_contacts.jpg
    Figure 3: Turning the Cartridge To View the Back Contacts
  3. Using a clean dry cloth, wipe the contacts in the direction shown (Figure 4), so that no dust or other contaminants are visible.

Cleaning cartridge


Both the black and colour cartridge must be installed for the printer to work. So you will need two cleaning cartridges. If you only have one cleaning cartridge, make sure your "other" cartridge is not out of ink. If you are sure both cartridges contain ink/cleaning fluid, post a new comment with this information.
