Question about Cisco Photosmart C4780 Wireless AllInOne Printer With Linksys By Cisco WirelessN Broadband Router
Thanks for using FixYa.
Sounds like you have a clogged printer head. Unlike the old HP printer models that has the printer head attached to the ink cartridge, the C4780 has the printer head built within the printer itself so reduce the cost of print cartridges. This sacrifices the life span of the printer though, because once the print head gets clogged or damaged, you will be sending the printer to HP for repairs. They will replace the print head. Replacing the print head will cost almost half the price of the printer itself so if your printer is already out of warranty, I suggest that you just get yourself a new printer.
What you can do to de-clog the printer head is to do a head cleaning. Goto the printer maintenance screen then select "clean printer head"
Here are some tips to avoid print head damages or clogging:
1. Don't print more than 20 pages in one sitting. This will cause the printer head to overheat and get damaged. After printing around 20 pages. Let your printer rest for 2-3 minutes.
2. Use your printer at least once a week. This will prevent the printer head from clogging.
I hope this helps. Thanks and have a nice day.
