ok, if you are using old cartriges, might want to try some rubbing alcohol on a tissue. This has worked on a number of cartriges in the past when i start getting missing pins. it lubricates the holes so in can flow again.

Take a q-tip and do the same if there's any kind of print head, but most print heads these days are built into the cartrige.

SOURCE: hp c4480 prints blue instead of black

Check the print properties and verify the black ink cartridge still has ink in it.

Otherwise, you may have a bad ink cartridge. If the cartridge has not been used for a while, the ink gums up the nozzle. You can try cleaning the ink cartridge and slot with alcohol. However, new color and black cartridges may be the best solution.

Step one: Check the ink cartridges HP doesn't guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. If the ink cartridges have been refilled, try replacing them with genuine HP ink cartridges.If you have checked the ink cartridges and are still experiencing a problem, proceed to Step two. Step two: Print a test page

  1. Verify that there is plain white paper in the input tray.
  2. Press the OK and Help buttons simultaneously. A two-page Extended Self Test Diagnostic Page prints. Figure 1: Extended Self Test Diagnostic Pagec00728269.gif
  3. In the Print Quality Pattern section on the second page of the test page, look at the color blocks for any lines. Figure 2: Print Quality Patternc00728270.gif
  4. If the colors are still wrong in the Print Quality Pattern color blocks, print a document to determine if the issue has been resolved.
If you have completed all of the steps above and are still experiencing a problem, proceed to Step three. Step three: Check the printer settings
  1. In the software application you are trying to print from, click File and then clickPrint . The Print dialog box opens.
  2. Verify that your printer is selected and then click Preferences . The Printing Preferences dialog box opens.

    • Photo Printing with white borders

Turn both your printer and computer off then after a few minutes turn back on. This should cancel the print job.

I have an HP Photosmart C3180 printer color ink issue. Instead of printing yellow its printing pink. I've cleaned the head multiple times and the ink cartridge is brand new. Please advise. Thanks!


If what you're saying is still the result after cleaning everything up, there must already be something wrong with the printhead because the printheads are the one's that are responsible for the mixture of the ink cartridges.
Try calling HP Tech Support. They might still be able to replace the printheads for you.

Since installing new ink cartrige every time I turn on the printer it prints an alignment page


Hi:
This problem is usually caused by one of the colors in the installed cartrige not printing out on the alignment page. You need to have red, blue and yellow working to get a good alignment. Try removing the cartridge, and wiping the print head with a wet paper towel to try to start the ink flowing. You should see three bands of color ink oozing out the bottom. If not, the cartridge is bad and needs replaced again!

My HP photosmart A520 Printers ink wont align


I had the same problem with mine when I bought it. The print head is in the ink cartrige not the printer. If it prints all red, blue or yello one of them is stuck, this happened on the trial cartrige that came with it. I put a fresh 110 in it and it aligned and I have printed a TON of pix with no problems.
