Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
This is an old thread - but I encountered the same problem with my 7580 today - and found this thread. I had replaced an empty black ink cartridge with a new XL black one. I made a about 4 or 5 mostly black and white prints and just like that it told me both printheads had a problem. Took them out and cleaned each ink head with toilet paper and replaced them a couple of times. Then it said that only the M/C head was bad. I tried to do various diagnostics and print head cleaning from the Solution Center with nothing happening. I took out the M/C head and shook it a few times and wiped the head with a napkin. Then I took some methylated spirit and wiped the head again. Inserted, closed the cover and pressed ok for a couple of seconds. It then proceeded to do all that I tried to do from my PC - print test page, print diagnostics page, and align the heads. It went through all and printed fine. This saved my about at least US$80 for one printhead! I hope this helps others. This was posted on 10Jan2011 and applies to HP 88 printheads.

Like someone already said, you need to restart the printer. Also reinstall the drivers and remember: always download them from the official manufacturer's website. You can get the Officejet l7580 user manual

Change the print head

Re-insert the print cartridges. It is also possible that the heads are burnt. Get a new set of print heads (black/yellow) and install to the printer. If problem persists, clean the contacts on the printers. Use acetone + cotton swabs.
