Question about HP Officejet Pro L7590 All-in-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have recently attempted (with alcohol) to clean my printhead to no avail. Should I invest in this instruction manual I see on E-Bay: "I have a 10 page manuals showing you how to unclog your HP printheads and cartridges it can also work on many other brands using the same method just from using non-toxic products that you have around home it can be done in most cases in less than 2 hours." Or should I just go straight for a new printhead. Is anyone familiar with what this document may contain or does anyone have a similar method that will repair my printhead. PLUS IT HAS A TORN PAPER ON THE LOWER RIGHT CORNER WHEN VIEWING FROM ELECTRICAL CONTACT SIDE, COULD THIS BE INTERUPTING THE ELECTRICAL SIGNAL IN THE COMPONENTS LOGISTICS PATH? WOULD SODERING OR TAPING REPAIR THAT OR IS THERE ANY HOPE? THanks for your advice in advance. SC

Hello SC,

I have heard of a lot of remedies for cleaning printheads and most of them are...well...'****' It has been my experience (now 17 years) if the printer will not correctly clean the printhead, purchase a new printhead. About the paper, there should NOT be any forgien objects in this department. If you are able to remove the paper with twezzers, do so. If not and you are not comfy with doing further repair, I would visit an authorized HP service center and let them perform a complete service of the printer. (Sometimes they will find issues that you may not have known about.)

I do hope this will help you. Good Luck

It's time to clean the printhead. Use the procedure from the printer status monitor. Try cleaning several times but beware it will drain some extra ink from the cartridges. If the cleaning process will not increase the quality of print, probably you will need to replace the printhead. Before replacing printhead, remove all the cartridges and verify if all four gaskets (seals) are present on the inner bottom of the printhead. Also remove printhead, clean contacts both on the back of printhead and carriage with isopropyl alcohol. Put back printhead and cartridges and let the printer do its ink system initialization process. Then try to print your labels again. If all those attempts fails, replace printhead.

Even after reinstalling printhead an ink cartridges on Kodakhero 5.1 printer, I still get the error message that the printhead is loose, missing, or not properly installed. What do I do?

Most likely this is a print head issue. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. To attempt to resolve it, do the following:

(1) Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. If for some reason it does not follow these instructions:
(a) Unplug the printer
(b) Manually slide the carriage over until you can get the ink cartridges out.
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in isopropyl alcohol or hot water or a mix of hot water and isopropyl alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now

If that does not work, then you need to try soaking the print head. In this case:
(1) Remove the print head from the printer
(2) Soak it in hot water for an hour or so
(3) Remove it, let it dry completely
(4) Replace the print head and cartridges and test it

Hp 6515 won't print black

The printhead on the 6515 is not designed to be serviced/replaced by the customer. If Sean, from HP, actually took a look at this HP printer, he'd see that. The problem is likely the cartidge itself, or the inkfeed to the printhead.
Make sure:
1. The contacts on the cartridge are clean. (a little scraping helps)
2. You can draw ink from the bottom of the cartridge (touch the outlet with a paper towel
3. Lastly, and what HP won't say; is that the ink system plugs up easily if you leave a cartridge out of the printer, or you run the printer with a depleted cartridge. That said, the situation can sometimes be remedied. There is a little mesh screen (filter) below the cartridge (visible when you take the cartridge out). If the ink drys in that mesh, there is no ink flow. Dab it gently with a Q tip moistened in hot water. It may take several tries. I had to use a little (very little) alcohol to get the screen unplugged. (This can be problematic if you use too much alcohol, so attempt this as a last resort).
Do a 'clean' operation in between attempts. It worked for me.

HP photosmart B210 wont print black

Seems to be a common problem - I had it too. I spent a lot of time looking, but never quite found a consistent fix. I fixed mine in a few steps: First, I removed all the cartridges, and cleaned the filters on the top of the printhead (these are the little screens you see when you look at the tray with the cartridges removed). To do this I blotted each screen with premoistened alcohol wipes, changing wipes frequently, until the wipes were clean. I then removed the printhead by lifting the black handle on the right side, and lifting the printhead straight up. I used alcohol pads on the rear contacts (refer to HP's instructions for changing printheads) in a downward motion only. Finally, I cleaned

Will not print in black

Try running the printhead cleaning utility on the printer a few times. Sometimes if you do not use your printer enough, the ink can clog the printhead on the cartridge. Another thing you can try is to use a cotton swab with some alcohol on the printhead to try to loosen it up. The alcohol trick is a last resort because it may damage the printhead occasionally. Good luck!
