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.

When I print on regular paper, the color prints look fine. When I print on photo paper, I get a consistent quarter-inch vertical orange line on the prints and the colors look washed out. Time for new...


Hi

Basics first (which you may have already considered).

Explore the Canon Printer software settings.

You need to adjust the Printing Preferences when switching from paper printing to photo paper printing.

Also look at the Print quality and colour saturation settings and try to print in Fine or High Quality when printing on photo paper

If none of the solve the problem, check if something is not stuck in the paper input tray and pressing the photo paper to close agasinst the scanner.

Make sure the paper is properly centered and cradled with the addjusble paper guide on the In Tray.

If tall new none of this works, install new cartridges and conduct Nozzle Check and Print Head Cleaning maintenance and then test print again.

I hope this helps.

My HP C7200 printer won't print from the photo tray



If you using a mac: After choosing the Photosmart C7200 to print your file on the print preview, change PAPER SIZE to 4x6, then lower down, change from PREVIEW to PAPER TYPE/QUALITY, more options will open underneath, on SOURCE, change from MAIN TRAY to PHOTO TRAY. You should also change the PAPER TYPE to some kind of PHOTO PAPER (whichever one your using, but the standard seems to be HP ADVANCED PHOTO PAPER)

Won't print on the photo paper


You didn't mention what paper you're using so for simplicity I'll assume it's an HP paper. When you installed your printer, it installed profiles for the HP papers and associated them with the printer. If you go to the Printers and Faxes folder, right-click on your printer and choose Properties, you'll get a dialog box for your printer. At the top it'll say something like HP Photosmart D7200 series Properties. Click on the Color Management tab, it'll show you a list of profiles associated with your printer. Your paper profiles will be named something like HP PS D6100_7100_7300-Advanced Photo. Don't worry about the names or selecting them, as long as they're listed you're OK. If they're not listed you'll need to re-install your printer software. Close the Properties box and the Printer and Faxes window.

Now go to LR, select your photo and go to the Print module. Scroll down the right panel until you get to the Print Job Header at the bottom. If you don't see any choices, click the triangle and open it up. Uncheck Draft Mode Printing and Print Resolution. Under Color management, click the triangles to the right of Profile:. This will open up a list of all paper profiles visible under LR. If you don't see your HP paper profile, click Other and it will list all the paper profiles on your system. Find your HP paper profiles and click the box next to each, this will make them visible in the LR drop-down. Hit Close and select the profile for the paper you're using.

Now click the Page Setup button, that will bring you to a dialog box where you can select your printer, page size and layout. Make these choices and then click on the Properties tab for your printer.

Now things get a little sticky... The HP driver has an infuriating habit of changing settings you've already made when you change something else. You'll come up in the Printing Shortcuts tab, ignore this and click on the Features tab. It's been quite a while since I used this printer so I may be wrong about the right order to do things, but here's what I remember: First, select your paper size. Click the Borderless box if that's how you want to print or uncheck it if not. Your Paper Source should be Main Tray for 5x7 or larger, Automatically Select for 4x6's that go in the top holder. Select Best or Maximum dpi for Print quality, then choose Paper Type, set it for Other Photo Papers since you'll be selecting the paper profile from LR. Hit the radio button for Print At Actual Size, go to the bottom and turn Photofix off.

Now go back to the top and click on the Color tab, select Print In Color and under Color Management, select Application Managed Colors.

Now go back to the Features tab and make sure nothing has changed. If it has, reset it, check the Color settings again, check the Features settings one last time. Then hit OK and you're back in LR.

Before you print, go over to the left panel and hit the Add button at the bottom. This will save all your settings and lots of time and aggravation by not having to go through the whole process again next time you want to print something. Name your profile with at least the size, layout and paper type you've set up and it will show up under User Templates. Then the next time you want to print on the same paper at this size, you just have to select this template.

Now hold down the Alt key, hit Print,
