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.

Won't Print Color Ink


INK PROBLEM
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

My hp dj9000s printer is switched off since 6 month, now I switch on it shown error message for Lc, Lm ink cartridge. (cartridge is ok I replace with new one but error is same)


If an inkjet printer has not been used for some time and several print head deep cleaning has been done and it still does not print properly then the nozzles in the print head are blocked.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent nozzles blocking with dried ink.
You need to replace the print head to get the printer functioning again.
But these print heads are expensive to replace, it may be better to buy a better and a later model printer for not much more costs.

Something keeps installing copies of my printer in the control panel. I have three HP 4100 deskjet prinyers


Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.
Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage. Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now If that does not work then follow the next step.
Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

When i try to print a photo i get white stripes across the photo. I bought a new ink cartridge but it didn't help.


White stripes across a print-out usually indicate clogged printer heads: look at your user manual on the cleaning procedures.
You can try cleaning BOTH the Black and Color cartridges heads by gentling cleaning and wiping the heads with clean moist tissue paper/kitchen paper. Also clean and dry the contacts (eg. copper looking printed circuit).
For bad and very dirty print heads, I also use a warm shallow dish of water and wash the head only and then dry off with clean tissue paper.
After re-inserting the cartridge, I suggest that you do a cleaning cycle and alignment and do a test print to ensure that the printing is back to normal.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

Inkjet printers do not like being unused, especially for years. The print head nozzles get clogged with dried ink when they are unused and even when you insert new ink cartridges the inks won't flow through the nozzles properly. The solution is to replace the print head.

That is absolutely not true. The printer you have uses integrated print head cartridges. This means every time you replace the ink cartridges you are replacing the print heads. Throw out the dried up ink cartridges and buy new ones. Your printer takes the HP 74 black and HP 75 color cartridges. There are XL versions of these cartridges that hold more ink and are a better value.

When you take the cartridge out, wipe the head (the gold area on the bottom) with a slightly damp tissue and put a piece of scotch tape on the head to seal it from air. It should maintain the cartridge in good condition until the next time you use it.
You can also look for some special inkjet head cleaning solution, which can be used to revive a dried-out printhead.

To clean the HP Inkjet print cartridges from the HP Toolbox, using a Windows operating system, perform these steps:
  1. Double-click the HP Toolbox icon on the computer screen.
  2. Click the Printer Services tab.
  3. Click Clean the print cartridges and follow the directions on the screen.
If the print quality improves after completing this sequence once, but the quality is still not quite good enough, repeat procedure. Start at Step 1, or click the Clean Again button on the final cleaning window. If this process does not improve the print quality, the HP Inkjet print cartridges might be low on ink. See the document that is provided with the black HP Inkjet print cartridge for instructions about how to use the ink level sensor to determine if the cartridge is low on ink. Replace the HP Inkjet print cartridges, if appropriate.

Print quality reduced.


You probly have a cloged cartridge. Most of HP's cartridges are water based ink. Take the cartridge that is not printing good, color or b/w, set the copper colored end, which is the print head on a dry paper towel. You should be able to see all colors as a solid line, or the black will show 2 solid black lines. The one that is not correct, take a paper towel and get it damp, and set the print head on the damp towel, be sure to fold the towel or it will stain the table you set it on. and let it set for a few minutes. Try the dry towel again. You may have to do this several times..You also should have software to prime your cartridages. After cleaning, try to prime the cartridge.

HP printers use cartridges that ARE the print head. On occasion, the cartridge could be defective...especially if they are the remanufactured type. Try replacing your cartridge with a new HP cartridge.
