Hi i have a hp officejet 4355 all in one printer at my place. i m having problem fixing with the cartridge as it is showing error. pls guide


Problems with Hewlett Packard Officejet 4355 printing can often be due to issues with the cartridges. The printer has two cartridges, one black and white, and one color. Both can be physically inspected for problems. The printer also has a self-test report to determine if there is a non-obvious problem with the cartridge. The report can provide valuable information, including status.

  • 1

    Take the black ink cartridge out of the slot on the right. Be careful not to touch the ink nozzles or the copper contacts.

  • 2

    Look at the cartridge and make sure that the plastic shipping tape isn't still attached. There shouldn't be any tape covering the ink nozzles.

  • 3

    Replace the black cartridge and then perform Steps 1 and 2 on the color cartridge. The color cartridge is the one on the left side.

  • 4

    Print a self-test report. Load paper in the tray and press "Setup." Press "2" and then "4." The HP Officejet 4355 will print a report. Make sure the lines of color extend across the page. Missing, faded or streaky lines can indicate a cartridge failure. If the color bars don't show as black, cyan, magenta and yellow, you should clean the cartridges.

  • 5

    Press "Setup" and then press "6" and then "1." The print cycle will commence. Allow it to complete and then print another test report. If the test still shows errors, replace the cartridges.

    Error message that color cartridge has low ink, so printer won't print. How do I override this? This message occurs when only one color is low and requires replacing the entire cartridge.


    No way 2 override the message. Printer works on a combination of both black and color ink to print those perfect pictures and documents. If it is showing color ink needs replacement,you ve 2 change it in order to print even in black and white.

    Canon i9100: colors printing incorrectly


    I've had the Canon i9100 since 2003 and have excellent photo printing results. In 2009 it started playing up and I'd gt some banding. More recently, black didn't want to print. It was as though the black ink in the print head got dry some days.

    April 2010 - The colours started printing strange and I bought a brand new print head and installed it. Only takes a minute. Still had an issue with photo printing. Black and white was excellent but colours weren't true.

    Found advice online to try cleaning the print head to print head carrier electrical contacts by rubbing them with a rubber eraser.

    I did that and now I'm getting perfect colour photo prints again.

    I had been thinking about buying a new A3+ printer but this is old printer is now working as good as new.

    My printer is running a white streak through the center of pages


    You may clean the cartridge by following the steps given below:
    1. Go to the "Lexmark solution center." This can be done by clicking on "Start," go to "Programs" and Lexmark printer group. Click on the "Lexmark Solution center." Next click on the "Maintenance" Tab.
    2. Select "Clean and Fix Horizontal streaks." Click on "Print". This will produce a printed page.
    The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps.
    If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean Print Nozzle" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below:
    1. Please open the "Solution center" again and go to the "Maintenance" Tab.
    2. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge or cartridges from the printer.
    3. Get a damp paper towel.
    4. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
    5. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.
    6. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
    7. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.
    8. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge install."
    9. Repeat the "Clean Nozzle Page" one more time. If this fails to address the problem the entire procedure may need repeating.

    Next, try this printer self-test by following the steps given below:

    1. Turn the power to the printer "off."
    2. Press and hold the "Paper Feed" button.
    3. Press the "Power" button once while continuing to hold the "Paper Feed" button.
    4. Keep holding the "Paper Feed" button until one sheet is cycled through.
    5. The test is continuous.

    The self-test should at least print out a set of either a solid black or solid color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with only a color cartridge installed. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.

    If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, let us know.

    Cannon multipass F60 scanner/printer striped color printing


    What you have is a dried up color cartridge. You can try to use the <clean print heads> in the diagnostic tools section of you priner software. (usually, just try to print something & the window will appear) Sometimes you have to clean heads, then print test page like 2 or 3 times before it clears up. If that doesn't correct it, don't worry. Have your color cartridge filled (staples, office depot, & other stores do it cheap) - or - replace it with a new cartridge. You may have to run the clean print heads program after installing a new cartridge, but this will definitely fix your problem.
