Question about HP Business InkJet 2800 Printer

1 Answer

Something as simple as cleaning the print heads...

Here we go; I am sat staring at our HP Business Inkjet 2800, which is printing documents off with smears on certain lines.

Possible reasons as to why this is:
1) The print heads need cleaning
2) The bit of paper that got stuck and I had to rip to get it out earlier may have deposited a small amount of paper somewhere that I cannot see and may be jamming something
2a) The removal of said bit of paper may have damaged something...

Either way, its not doing my reports any good and I need to sort it.

Any ideas? Please & Ta X

A bit of paper had jammed under the print heads and damaged them. The paper was removed and the print heads were replaced.

Thanks for the advice guys...

And NO - I don't want to pay for assistance!

When trying to print an 11 x 17 word 2010 document that displays properly on the screen only a portion approximately 8.5 x 11 prints out of my 3 month old HP business Inkjet 2800 printer.

It may be that an updated driver is needed; that would be available from the HP website. You should be able to manually set the printer via the HP user software that came with it although it seems that Word should be able to do that automatically.

My hp business inkjet 2800 prints blurry even after replacing heads and run heads alignment and cleaning procedure. Is there anything I could do to solve this issue? thanks

Forgive me for asking this, but roughly speaking about 80 to 95% of problems involving ink or toner are resolved by the following:
Are you using a factory new ink cartridge supplied by the manufacturer of the printer?
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge 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 causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.

Hp business inkjet 2800 will not print cyan although have replaced cartridge and run all onboard diagnostics. hp troubleshoot shows no problem yet printer will not print

You say you replaced the cartridge but did you replace the print head. If you fully lift the cartridge cover you will see a row of print heads. The Cyan print head is C4811A. Try replacing this.


If you feel lucky you can run the print head cleaner diagnostics. The print head may simply be dirty or clogged.
