I have changed out my black ink cartridge and now it says Attention: Print head loose, missing or not installed correctly.


Had exactly the same issue - working fine until ink cartridge changed (kodak for kodak - not a copy). Then can only get 'print head error message'.
Multiple attempts to remove and re-install, power on/off etc. but can't shift the error message. New print head more expensive than a new printer!

Large ink spill. Printer no longer recognized new black cartridge.


You can perform the Tap 41 Cartridge Health Diagnostics Test: [applies to HP Deskjet 6800/6900/9800]
http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1741 (refer to 2nd video to understand how to read the printed pattern)

1. With printer power on, press and hold the POWER button.
2. Press the Cancel (X) button four (4) times.
3. Press the RESUME button (Down Arrow) once.
4. Release the POWER button.
5. The Diagnostic Test Report should print.

--- A good HP 93/95/97/99 color cartridge should display 600 good nozzles, while a good HP 92/94/96/98 black ink cartridge should show 672 good nozzles. If the results yield anything different then the ink cartridge is likely damaged and will need to be replaced. Refer to 2nd video on how to read the printout: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1741


---- If the printer attempts to print the diagnostic test pattern (1 page) then the printer is generally considered operational and functional, if nothing is printed, but the printer attempts to print the pattern, then the tri-color ink cartridge is either empty, clogged or severely electrically damaged (black ink cartridge is not used). You can remove the tri-color cartridge, reactivate the tap 41 test and the printer will print the diagnostic test print in black ink (special "ink back-up mode").

HP 5150 Deskjet -- black printing abruptly stopped. Prints appear with color but no black. Switching black cartridges doesn't help. Clean print heads operation doesn't help. Switching computers...


There are very few things you can do, other than what you have aleady done.
I would recommend a decision on how much the unit cost and how long you have used the
printer vrs. what HP or a local authorized service center would charge to repair it.
If you have refilled ink cartridges, this is problem that can arise due to ink drying on the
print head as the black cartridge is use the most.

My printer keeps flashing check print cartridge, Both black and color are flashing. I have Just bought a new 92 Black cartridge and the color cartridge is full ... why is this happening?


While reseating a cartridge is not difficult but there are a number of errors that can occur if the user does not manage it properly. Reseating a cartridge should not be a difficult task for anyone with a passing knowledge of printers. The reseating error can occur after the user has replaced the black ink cartridge. It is a common problem with the black ink cartridge. The user may attempt to replace the cartridge number of times, clean the contacts and restart the plotter. If there is a problem with replacing the black ink cartridge that cleaning the contact does not fix, then it is best to simply replace the carriage assembly first. If this does not solve the problem then the user may want to consider replacing the trailing cable.

3940 blinks and cant pritn


hello lotsaprint, ipang
Few days ago i had the same problem with my hp 3920 color photo printer. All i did is removed the cartridges one by one and the problem was solved. Try removing the color cartridge first, then switch on the printer see i the problem is solved the cartridge contacts must be dirty. clean it with soft tissue (dont use any liquid) and reinsert the cartridge. If the problem persists u may need to replace the cartridge. Check with a new one if u can borrow one from anyone b4 u buy.
Repeat the same procedure with black cartridge if necessary. If u r new and need guidance for removing the cartridge, then do the following.
1). Switch on the printer.
2). Open the front cover. The cartridge will now move to the
center.
3). Switch off the printer and remove the power cord.
4). push the cartridge gently downwards to detach.

Close the cover when u r done with above mentioned.
For more info see the user guide u go with the printer.

Hope this was helpful

Standard black printing has faded to grey.


Could just be a faulty cartridge?

My hp printer developed a similar fault, and despite all my attempts to clean, realign, whatever, the problem wasn't solved till I fitted a new ink cartridge. It's worth a try.
