HP Officejet 7130 xi all in one say Bad Print Head

This printer has never been used for about 2-3yrs
I loaded some paper and tried to print the menu settings
First I was getting error that the cartridges were bad
Bought new and replaced them
Now getting error that Cyan Print head is bad
None the less it still feeds the paper and sounds like it is
printing but the paper comes out blank.
In trying to trouble shoot the problem I removed all print heads
to inspect them.Possibly I damaged the cyan but should something
still print on the other colors when Im trying to print menu settings

    I have the same problem....The printer has not been used for about 2 yrs
    I loaded some paper and tried to print.
    I got an error message that the cartridges were bad
    Bought new and replaced them
    Now getting error that Black, Magenta, Cyan and Yellow Print head are bad
    It still feeds the paper and sounds like it is
    printing but the paper comes out blank.
    In trying to trouble shoot the problem I removed all print heads
    to inspect them. Should I invest money to replace all four print heads?

    I have the exact same problem. Didn't use it for a year or so and the cyan printhead is not working. I've tried replacing all the print cartridges and cleaning them with a que tip but it's still not working right. It will print, but without cyan. Black doesn't print right either.

    I put in new ink black and color.  Now it prints faint splotchy black only and tells me that the cyan print head is bad and need to replace.  What and where is a print head?  Help!!

    i did the same thing but it is printing 1/2 the letters. it also says replace the print head on the cyan.

    how do i replace the print head?

    I have the same issue except all of my printheads are bad. I've cleaned them several times as well as preforming the "clean printheads" option on the actual printer. I just got off the phone with HP and was told my all-in-one officejet 7130 was too old and replacing the printheads would cost all most as much as getting an "upgrade" through them. Also, if I chose to replace the printheads I was guaranteed the problem would reoccur. I was given four options ranging from $179.99 to $272.99 for an upgrade. I'll have to do some research to see if I can find a better price else where. Good Luck to All!

HP officejet 6500 does not dispense ink


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying 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 than replace the print head.

On my HP Officejet 4215, my black cartridge doesn't print. The cartridge is nearly full.


If you haven't used the black print option, as in to print without using the color cartridges, then the black print head may be 'gummed up'.
You can try to clean the print head using the 'clean' function, which may work.
You can also try to get the print head to work by using ammonia and hot water. If the cartridge has its own print head, you can use some hot water on a paper towel and set the print head onto the soaked towel for a few minutes. After it has sat for a while, gently dab it dry with another paper towel, and try to use it. If it works, you're done. If not, you can use ammonia to try to clean the print head using the same tactics as using water. Try water first, then ammonia.
If the print head is fixed in place, you have to remove the whole assembly from the printer, and then try to clean the print head using the same method.

I have hp 7130 deskjet and i cannot print in color initially i had bad printhead cyan and yellow error but after i cleaned print head all errors are gone but still cannot print color


Cleaning, unfortunately takes up a lot of ink. Check ink levels. If you need to, you may have to put new cartridges in every 100 or 120 pages or so depending on how colorful the documents are.

How much printing have you done with this printer?

Hp officejet v40. new cartridge but missing blue when printing


Sounds like your cyan print head is clogged. You can try to get it flowing yourself by rubbing the print head with a wet paper towel. If you press the print head on a dry paper towel you should see three distinct lines of color. If you still don't see the cyan, try letting the print head rest on the wet paper towel on a surface that ink can be cleaned up from or one you don't care about staining. If the cyan still won't flow, you should go back to where you purchased it and return it for a new one.

How do I change the black printhead of an HP Officejet 7130xi?


Yes, you can only replace the black printer head.
Is it saying that you have a bad print head?
If not, try to get a paper towel and fold it to be a little thick and get it humid (not too wet) and let the printer head soaking on top of the paper towel for an hour or so.
If the problem is because the printer head is dry, that usually resolvs the problem.
I had the same problem a while ago and I even did that with the color printer heads.
Good Luck,

Clean officejet print head


You can get very good results in reviving the HP Officejet 7100 Series printheads simply by placing them in a shallow plate or dish with about 1/4" of hot water (ideally distilled water). Soak the nozzle face (bottom) for at least 5 minutes before drying and testing; repeat if needed for really clogged heads.
