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.

Many people had a similar problem with the Color Inkjet cp1700 B-size printer.

Another solution that worked for some people was installing the hp deskjet 9800 printer driver.

It appears what you need is a patched .gpd file for the BI 2800.
Try emailing Bob Headrick, who has done these patches. (Thanks Bob)!
Be sure to put Vista and Large Format Printing 11x17 in the subject line.

You'd think between HP and MS, they'd have this working right out of the box.
Did they think people would buy a B-size printer so they could hook it up to Vista and then not want to print mainly B-size documents?
They would have had happier customers if they would have included B-size support but left out A-size!
Amazing!

Good Luck

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.

or

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

Sounds like one or more of your printheads is worn out. They are designed to be user replaceable, and wear out after a certain amount of usage.

Black is obvious, but if the lines are purplish, your yellow head is bad. If they're greenish, your magenta head is bad. If they're reddish, your cyan head is bad.

Vertical lines are very unusual. Can you scan a printout and post it somewhere that we can look at it?

Sounds like your driver is sending A4 size documents, and you've got Letter in the drawer. When you do that, it runs out of room on the Letter-size page, since A4 is a tad longer, and has to continue onto a second page. Margins being what they are, the second page is usually blank.

Hope that helps.
