Question about HP OfficeJet D135 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

After a few years of not using my HP printer, I took it out of storage, hooked it up, put in new ink cartridge but nothing is printing. When I click print, it goes through the motions and prints out blank pages.

We installed our new computer and printer..however the printer is not printing out anything. Its working..but no print on the paper. We took the tape off the cartridges. Help!!


Use the HP Printing Assistant software to run a few "print-head-cleaning-cycles",
to s(t)uck ink from the ink-cartridges into the ink-jets, and to unclog any of the ink-jets
that should be shooting the ink onto the paper.

Or, since it is a NEW printer, exercise the WARRANTY to get it repaired/replaced, at no cost to you.

The Ink at the head of your Printer Cartridges has dried up.
Try this:

Load some plain paper in the printer

Remove the cartridges from the printer and carefully dab the print heads of the cartridges with a damp paper towel. ( when you start to see ink, the ink is starting to flow).

Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Go to:

Start
Control Panel
Printers
RIGHT click on this printer
choose Printing preferences
services
clean print cartridges 9some papers may print)
follow the instructions and do the heavier cleaning as well

Run the calibration function and allow the paper to print.

Just took my old hp deskjet 932c out of the garage.


What many people do not realize is that an ink cartridge and printhead must be used on a regular basis to function properly. Recommendation is a few pages each week. If not, the liquid ink will dry and block the nozzles. First course of action is to purchase new ink cartridges. If this does not work, than purchase new printheads. However, it would be less expensive in the long run to just buy a new ink printer with the cost of ink printers being as low as they are.

Popular Mechanics did an article on this very subject a few years ago and there is a software program on the market that will automatically print a page or two every week to prevent this problem.

Printer not printing


Assuming that your printer is hooked up properly and ready to print, then the problem could lie with the ink cartridge. You could try holding the printhead of the cartridge over the steam of your jug (using tongs), dab on some tissues and see if you can see ink on the tissue.This could clear the printhead and get you printing again

Hp 7550 ink jet printer printing uneven


My first guess is that it is a cartridge issue, due to these printers having the print head as part of the cartridge, there is nothing else, it makes the whole cartridge the only printing item. Ensure the carts are not old (exp date) and that they are HP, With that all understood as I now see that you must due to owning it for 6 years, then you could try to clean the contacts on machine's "cartridge holder" and give that a clean too while your at it cause it may be the problem here (see below)

If a inkjet printer lasts 3 years you would be doing well, and you've had 6. Exceptional!

HP Photosmart printers may print images with white lines or single color streaks. This issue can be caused by ink that has dried in the ink nozzles or by debris that is blocking the ink nozzles. The ink cartridges and the and printer cradle should be cleaned. Clean the ink cartridges with the ink cartridge cleaning utility in the HP Printer Toolbox. Also, clean the ink cartridges and the print cradle manually.
Cleaning the ink cartridge cradle
  1. Assume an eye level position with the HP Photosmart printer.
  2. Locate the ink cartridge cradle.
  3. Using clean, moistened swabs, wipe the underside of each wall of the carriage where fibers may collect and come in contact with the paper. Repeat until no ink residue is seen on a clean swab.
  4. Reconnect power cord when finished cleaning.


Manually cleaning the ink cartridges
  1. Turn the printer on and lift the top cover.
  2. After the ink cartridges have moved to the center of the printer, unplug the power cord from the back of the printer.
  3. Remove the ink cartridges and place them wide side down on a piece of paper.
  4. Prepare a clean, foam-rubber swab or a lint-free cloth slightly dampened with water.
  5. Locate the copper-colored circuitry strip on the back of each cartridge.
  6. Clean the copper-colored strip with the dampened swab or cloth. Do not wipe the nozzle end of the cartridge or touch the nozzle plate.
  7. Clean the carriage contacts on the back wall of the ink cartridge carriage with a damp foam-rubber swab or lint-free cloth. Use a dry foam-rubber swab or a lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.

Cleaning the ink cartridges with the HP Printer Toolbox
  1. Click Start .
  2. Click Settings .
  3. Click Printers .
  4. Right-click the icon of the printer in use.
  5. Click Properties .
  6. Click the Services tab.
  7. Click Open the HP Photosmart Toolbox or Service this device.
  8. Click the Device Services tab. This tab does not display in Windows XP; proceed to the next step.
  9. Click Clean the Print Cartridges .
  10. Follow the onscreen prompts.
If you've got this far then I should tell you that these days, Printers aren't worth fixing, one just replaces them with new

HP PSC 1350v Check Print Cartridge Light


Check the date on your ink cartridge.  I bet it has expired. If you put in a "new"cartridge but it is even an HP one with an older date, it may not work.
I had my printer stop in the middle of a print job.  It was printing fine and suddenly would not print.  So I refilled the cartridge with an ink kit I had on hand and reinserted it--no go!  Then I opened a remanufactured cartridge (office depot) I had bought some time ago and inserted it.  No go, despite the fact I could see ink coming from the jets.  I finally gave up and bought a new HP ink cartridge, and it worked just fine.  But it bugged me why the new one would work and the other two that seemed just fine would not.

Later I learned that HP has a chip that reads the expiration date on the cartridges and that is what keeps those old ones from printing.  I found one trick of setting my date on my computer back to a year earlier than the exp date on the cartridge.  I saw the date on the remanufactured one I had tried earlier was 2005, so I set my computer date to today date but year 2004.  After forcing me to do print alignments several times and take the remanufactured cartridge out and put it back, I got it to print just fine.  And that 2005 cartridge that would not work earlier is what I am printing with right now.
Be advised, though, if you try the date setback, that HP printer will buck and try every way to not let you use that old cartridge.  You must say no to reflashing if HP tries to pull that on you.  And you will take out and put back that same cartridge multiple times and keep printing alignment sheets 3 or 4 times before you are successful.  But, if you persist, you can get it to work.

HP F380 printer


This happens when your print head gets dirty. Just claening the print head should solve your problem. To do this: Click start button > click Printers and faxes. > Right the printer icon > click properties > Here you should find something like "Head cleaning" or "Clean the print head". This option can be used to clean the priter head automatically. If it does not work, you can manualy take out the cartridge and dip it in to IPA (Isopropyle alcohol) solution would clean the head[dip the head only not the complete cartridge]. After a few minutes (10-20) you can fit the dry cartridge the printer. If nothing works try changing the cartridges. Note: When the ink is running out this may occur. The only thing we can do is to replace the cartridge.
