    I was able to print out the model number : B209a-m. I went on the HP web site to print out the manual. They don't accept this number. How do I get a manual for the HP Photosmart plus B209a-m printer? Also there is an alignment sheet that came with it. Is there a way to realign it? I also see when I select a photo on the tiny screen to print, often times the screen is black where the photo is supose to be that is to be printed. What is up with this?

    My printer is The HP B209a-m. How do I get a users manual? HP does not accept this model on their web site. I found the ink level ok on the view ink screen. When I printed the Printer status report it said the yellow was empty. You were right... Replacing the yellow corrected the problem. Thanks, Russ

Hi,

This usually indicates Low Ink. If the Cartridges are New and Original, then try to Reseat the Cartridges.If the Problem still Persists,more often it is Faulty Print Head and needs Manual Cleaning or Replacement.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have a hp photo smart compact A526 photo printer that I print my pics from my android via Bluetooth (bought Bluetooth adapter) and my prints come out either blueish or greenish Any ideas what to do?


Go into the properties for the printer and run the colour diagnostics test, especially the one that tells if the ink tanks are full and that the inkjet patterns are all working.

Make sure that the colour is set to 'normal' and not a specially set up colour scheme.

What are the ink cartridge numbers for this printer?


The OfficeJet 7310 can use different ink cartridges:
Black: HP 96 or HP 94 (high capacity - lasts for ~860 pages, if it doesn't dry out.)
Color: HP 95 or HP 97 (large capacity)
Photo: HP 99 (replaces black when you print on Photo papers)
Photo Grey: HP 100

See http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00227021&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=391182 for the parts list of this printer.

If you were using the wrong ink cartridges, you would not be able to print at all. HP printers give errors when it doesn't recognize the cartridge as the appropriate one.

First check if you are printing in a low quality mode. This is under Printer Properties or Printer Preferences when you click Print or right click on the Printer in the Devices Control Panel. Go to the Printing Shortcuts tab. In the Advanced Options (click the button), you can change the ink volume and slide the tab to the right to add ink.

You should print a Diagnostic test page to see the color levels/reproduction relative to the HP settings and consider cleaning the print head. The diagnostic page is reached by pressing * and # on the printer. Then press 1, 2, and then 3. In this Service Menu, press the right arrow key twice and press OK to open the Special Reports menu. Press the right arrow key once and then press OK. See http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00242761&tmp_task=solveCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=391182 to evaluate the printout's ink cartridge quality information.

I've seen dull colors on photo paper when you print on the wrong side. This is obvious since the ink will bleed.

The other common issue is differences between the color appearance on the monitor and the printer reproduction of that color.

I hope this helps.

My printer is printing blank pages


I used to have one of these printers.

1. Check the ink levels.
2. Try printing on DVD.

The C309 has a black photo cartridge.

Text prints from the regular black cartridge and pictures print from the photo black cartridge.

THe best way to tell if by checking first the ink levels and replace cartridge if necessary.

One thing you can do to check if the printer is printing is by adjusting on the Printer Setttings and printing on one color.

To do this you need to choose the color from a circular palette .

Another way is to use Word or any other processor and change the font color to blue and print it.

Hope it helps.

hello, you are using the photo color ink cart, have you tried running a cleaning cycle or test print, the reason why i ask, is that maybe 1 of the colors is not printing, the test pages would prove what color is missing, if black not printing, it would print possible blue, or no black at all. i know you have put in new inks, but since the volume of ink in these cartridges run out according to usage, one color might run out before the others, and since black and yellow are the most used colors, without them your prints will show color faults.
