Question about HP C6250 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I am having a problem printing with my HP printer

I am having a problem printing with my HP Photosmart C6250. I purchased a complete set of refillable O2 cartridges,which were pre-
filled with ink.When I installed them and tried to print something the only colors that were able to print were:yellow,cyan,& lt.cyan.The black
,magenta,and lt.magenta would not print at all.I cleaned the printheads
with the software that came with the printer about 12 times,and the
results were the same,no ink.The printer has not sat idol for a long period of time,so I do'nt think the ink has dried inside.What else could
be wrong?

You wasted your time using cleaning program and heaps of ink...

follow this procedure:

1. remove all ink cartridges from the printer
2. check if ink is soluble in water, isopropyl alcohol or methylated spirit (this which do not create lumps or precipitations is correct solvent)
3. put one drop of solvent in th centre of aspiration hole on receptable
4. if solvent is absorbed through input, that meant problem is not with printer but with cartridges.
5. check printer cartridge by stamping them with tissue if they "produce" any ink on the outlet,
6. put one drop of solvent on cartridge outlet and insert them in correct bases
7. print test page, print should be rather weak as solvent will go through the nozzles
8. print test page from computer
9.create "strip page" of each colour used, separate by no colour (white) start with yellow strip, then white, light cyan, white, cyan, white, light magenta, white, magenta, white, black - this strip pattern will force all cartridge to operate on they max delivery.

if there is no result, service by technician will be in place...

all ink based printers need to print at least one page per week... ink will dry pretty fast, especially in dry or hot condition.

You can use a degreasing spray or methyl alcohol to clean up the residual ink. Use a brush to clean and wipe and BLOW using a hair dryer to fully dry up the residue.
Make sure that there is no dirt at the terminals, clean and set with original cartridges from HP.
Now if there is errors then you must disconnect printer, uninstall then install the driver, connect printer when prompted and print a test page.

It prints only half a page.... how can i fix that???


Does the print fade out or is the printed page complete, just cropped down? If it is fading out then it is the cartridges running dry, or refilled using the incorrect ink. If it is printing the entire document, just smaller, then under printer properties you can set the page size. (control panel - printers and faxes - right click your printer and select printing preferences) I hope this helps Regards GM

I have refilled the ink in my hp74 cartridge and it does not register as full on the printer. It also, does not print anything?? Barely ledgable when it does...very very light.


Your refilled hp 74 will not register as full after you do a refill.
You will have to remove some ink out of the ink cartridge.
There is a special clip that can be purchase to do this.
You could just leave the cartridge in overnight for the ink to reach the bottom.
The ink cartridge will then be able to print.

Failure of Printer to Print Color


Try using a new HP ink cartridge. I had the same problem with a printer I purchased off of CraigsList even though the ink level was good. I installed a new color HP ink cartridge and it printed without a problem.

You can use refilled cartridges for your printer just make sure they are of good quality. You can only refill cartridges a few times before the printhead on the cartridge no longer works. The problem you are having does not have to do with the cartridge, it is probably an issue with the information being spooled from your computer to your printer. Depending on the amount of information on your document, the memory is hesitating before in can download more and continues to print.

My refilled ink cartridge still displays empty and will not print


The ink cartridge is most likely chipped & you would not be able to reset the ink level. Purchase an original or a good compatible cartridge. Refiling newer cartridges is not a good idea.

My HP Photosmart C7280 does not recognise refilled cartridge.


Yes that is because when you get a cartridge refilled then what may have happened is when you gave a print command some of the ink may have splattered onto the ink spraying sensors(usually happens with refilled cartridges on any printer).Its because of the heat generated with which the ink nozzles cannot handle as the ink that is sprayed from refilled cartridges is a little more than regular original ink cartridges.Dip a cotton swab in water wipe the copper contacts on the cartridge.Then wipe around the place where the cartridges sit and also wipe the carriage rod which is inside the printer (metal rod)along which ur spraying mechanism(carriage) moves. If this does not resolve your issue call in to hp at 1800-474-6836 and you can purchase original cartridges that are just for 11 dollars each.........or you can purchase a combination pack which will be cheaper
