Photo black ink runs out b4 black on HP Photosmart C6380 printer

My friend has a HP Photosmart C6380 printer connected to a Dell computer. Though she doesn't print many pictures, the photo black ink cartridge runs out before the black ink cartridge. The other ink cartridges are still almost full. Any ideas on why this happens?

Black printer ink in HP Photosmart may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

The black ink cartridge is larger than the photo black cartridge and black is used in photos to make the darker colors. Black text takes much less ink per page.

Even though all my print cartridges are full my hp c6380 printer prints out pictures that are not colored properly. It seems to print as if the cyan cartridge is empty but that is not the case. Any idea...


Open the "HP Toolbox" software (it was installed from the CD-ROM that came with the printer).

Run the "Print-Head-Cleaning" cycle -- some of the ink-jets are clogged, and thus no ink of that colour is being jetted onto the paper.

I'm getting "ink system failure" message on my 1-yr-old hp photosmart c6380. HP tech support tells me this is a critical failure and I should upgrade to another printer. D I have any other options?


Hello,

HP just wants to sell another printer. The "ink system failure" error is caused by air in the ink feed tubes. This happens when the ink in the cartridges goes run all the way out or you use poor quality refilled cartridges. In both cases the printer tries to pump ink but gets air instead. We have a step by step guide to do a purge on the ink lines and reset the system posted on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com look in the printer repair pages and the HP. In less than 10 minutes you should be back printing again.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Hello,
The ink failure error is caused by air in the ink feed tubes in your printer. This happens when the ink in your cartridge runs out and the printer sucks up air instead of ink. We have a step by step repair solution for this error posted on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com click on the printer repair pages and follow the links to your printer series.
