Question about HP DeskJet 5650 InkJet Printer

2 Answers

HP 5600 series Lid won't close properly so can't get anything to print. when I start to try to print the power button and the ink low button both flash but its not short of ink. If I press the resume button all three lights start flashing fast. it also makes a big noise when its start to try to print - the sort of normal noise of starting to drag paper through and move print heads only more so.

On the HP5650 there is a switch on the right hand side at the top. The switch is flush with the inside surface under the cover. A tab on the right hand side of the cover is supposed to depress this switch telling the printer the cover is closed. If the cover is warped (mine was) or if the tab has broken off, you can manually depress the switch with a pen-point (or just hold the cover at that point) to get the printer to activate.

    The only way to correct the cover is as follows:

    1) Manually slide catridge to the left so you have room.

    2) The switch to allow the cover to close is mounted along the right side. Manually turn it toward the back of the printer while you close the printer door. The door will close and the print cartridges will automatically move back into position.

    3) Note. Hold the switch as long as you can untll you have to pull your finger out to close the door.

Fix the cover of your printer. It is having a hard time printing that's why it causes noise while printing.

Printer gets print command and goes through print action but no print on page. Ink cartridges indicate full.


Although "full", some ink in the path-way has dried out, and is blocking the flow of ink from the ink-tank through the ink-jets.

Try the "head-cleaning" procedure, or replace the ink-cartridges.

Printhead moves but does not print


If the HP 56, 57 or 58 ink cartridge refuses to print or function at all (i.e. blinking ink light on Deskjet 5000, 5100, 5500, 5600 or 5800 series printer) or fails to complete the printer alignment following cartridge installation, then the ink cartridge either has a connectivity issue with the flexible printed circuit cable (inside unit where cartridge mates with cable), the rear cartridge contacts or cable contacts are dirty with ink residue, or the cartridge is suffering from marginal internal electrical performance. It is suggested you perform the TAP 43 (and TAP 10) DIAGNOSTIC PRINTER TEST to evaluate the ink cartridges electrical performance. Visit Inkjet411 support site to see instructional video: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2358


To clean the HP 56, 57 or 58 ink cartridges please visit the Inkjet411 site which provides recommendations on how to clean the electrical contacts, flex driver cables and how to perform a hot water flush of the cartridge nozzle plate (refer to video): http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

Also, verify the top cover is closing properly (it has an interlock). If necessary create a small shim and press into the top-right port to close the switch (i.e. use a piece of cardboard or fold a post-it note 10x to form a small/hard shim about 1/4 inch by 1 inch in size). This should allow the printer to properly energize and the blinking lights should go away.
NOTE: For the HP Deskjet 5000 series printer models, when you get an HP 56, 57 or 58 integrated ink cartridge refilled (i.e. currently offered at Costco or Frys today) or if you buy a remanufactured/compatible HP ink cartridge, the ink levels are not initially reset. However, continuing to use an ink cartridge which displays LOW INK alerts is permitted by the printer, simply select OK, CONTINUE or DISMISS when these alerts are observed. Now, it is possible to reset the ink levels by performing the procedure outlined on Inkjet411's site: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1915

HP DESKJET 5600 ENCOUNTERED ERROR WHEN POWERED ON


If the new (or refilled/reman/compatible) HP 56, 57 or 58 ink cartridge refuses to print black/color and/or fails to function at all (i.e. blinking ink lights on Deskjet 5000, 5100, 5500, 5600 or 5800 series printers) or fails to complete the printer alignment following cartridge installation, then the ink cartridge either has a connectivity issue with the flexible printed circuit cable (inside unit where cartridge mates with cable), the rear cartridge contacts or cable contacts are dirty with ink residue, or the cartridge is suffering from marginal internal electrical performance. It is suggested you perform the TAP 43 (and TAP 10) DIAGNOSTIC PRINTER TEST to evaluate the ink cartridges electrical performance. Visit Inkjet411 support site to see instructional video: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2358
Also verify that the cover interlock switch (at top-right side of printer) is closing properly - you may need to place a thick shim (1/4 inch by 1 inch) into the door switch port to enable printer to properly energize (I would check this first). This Deskjet printer series is known to have a top cover closing issue (the top covers warp over time unfortunately).
NOTE: For the HP Deskjet 5000 series printer models, when you get an HP 56, 57 or 58 integrated ink cartridge refilled (i.e. currently offered at Costco or Frys today) or if you buy a remanufactured/compatible HP ink cartridge, the ink levels are not initially reset.

I can't close the lid on hp deskjet 5652 printer


try removing all ink and one by one just make sure it is all the way in securely. if that does not help its most likely you are closing the doornto fast or on an angle which prevents it from closing properly. hope this helps.

Why won't my Lexmark 5600- 6600 Series Printer print in color?


It could be the print setting on the application where you're printing from. Before you send your print job and hit "Print" button on your computer, check in the Printing Preferences and make sure it is not set to print "Using black ink only.".

After installing re-filled ink cartridges, both color and back & white, the printer message that shows ink level still shows low level ink? How do we resolve?


Hello,

Try this procedure:
1. Open printer lid so cartridges move to center of carriage.
2. Lift clamp and remove black or color cartridge from the holder.
3. Place cartridge on table with copper contact strip facing you.
4. Carefully place a strip of clear plastic tape over the four contacts on the upper left corner of the cartridge.
5. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position.
6. Open lid and remove cartridge again. Remove tape from left side and place tape over four contacts at upper right corner of cartridge.
7. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position again.
8. Open lid again, remove cartridge, remove tape.
9. Reinstall cartridge and close lid.
Printer will now recalibrate. Once the process is complete the ink level meter should be reading full again.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.
