SOURCE: HP 3310 - problem with black ink supply

I heard you can get the 3310 to do a pump up the tubes cycle but i don't know how to make it do it. Pressing the ok and cancel buttons when you power up didn't work for my machine. Which has too died a inkless black death!

SOURCE: k550 air in ink feedlines

I have had this happen a couple of times and have cured it easily. It has only happened with the black with me. It seems to be caused by air in the ink feed line. With the printer switched on open the top cover and hold the resume button for 5 seconds. The printheads should move to the left and you may be able to see air in the pipe(s). Remove the printhead of the offending colour(s) then insert a syringe with the plunger fully down into the rubber that the printhead connects to. Draw up the syringe plunger to draw ink/air through until you can see no more air in the pipe. Replace the printhead and close the cover. The printer should now do a calibration with the offending colour hopefully now working.

SOURCE: I have 2 Epson R230. One has a bad printhead, in

Befory you toss the printer, try this!
Take a syringe, 1" piece of rubber tubbing that will fit over the head input snugly, (auto parts house stocks some that works fine). Fill the syringe with a good head cleaner, slightly warm it in the microwave (try 5 seconds to start). Attach to nozzle, gently pull back just a bit, then apply a little pressure. If it accepts the fluid, STOP, You can clean the syringe, add the proper color ink, inject just a small amount. reinstall a known good cartridge, clean heads couple times checking results, if ANY streaks or color appears, clean again! Sometimes letting it sit overnight allows the head to fill with ink. I have had very good luck with this method, also some will not clean properly, just depends on how bad it is clogged.
Good luck..

There are many videos on you tube to clean the cartridges. They are pretty good. One additional suggestion remove all cartridges and use any good contact cleaner to wipe the contacts on all the cartridges well. Your black cartridge may be just blocked. One of the videos suggested making a cleaner with household ammonia and isopropyl alcohol. Put it onto a lint free tissue on the pad and let the head soak in it for a day or two and run the cycle again.

Just put new color cartridges in and tested print and it showed all color bars however when i ask it to print it does not print out anything in black


You didn't say what brand/model of printer you are using, but a lot of printers nowadays have a color cartridge(s) and a separate black cartridge. Perhaps the black cartridge needs to be replaced, too?

When turning on Sb-4100 I get message "unable to start driver for hpoipm07.exe". What to do?


Hi rbrown454. That file is for your HP printer. Go to hp.com and click on support and drivers and download the latest driver for your printer. While it's downloading go to add/remove programs in Control Panel and uninstall ALL HP software. Do not restart, wait for the software to finish downloading and restart. Then reinstall the software you downloaded from the internet.
In case you have the CD, reinstall the CD but make sure you uninstall ALL HP Software.
I hope this helps. Please do not forget to rate and provide positive feedback for our fast/free support today. Thank you :D

XP SP3 sends docs to print que but nothing prints


Open up your print queue. Cancel All jobs.

Go to the start menu and either click on, or search for cmd. This will open the command window. You also need to open your task manager.

In the task manager, search for a process called spoolsv.exe, or if that doesn't exist, find a process with "spool" in the name. This is your print spooling process. Right click the process, and end it. You can close the task manager now.

Next, go to the command prompt. Type "net start spooler" without the quotes, and hit enter. This should restart your spooling process. Close the command window, and try to print.

If this doesn't work, you should check to make sure you're printing to the correct printer. If it doesnt solve the problem, uninstall your current printer (you may have to end the spoolsv.exe process again), and reinstall the drivers for your particular model, which you can find at the manufacturers website.

The solution center shows a question mark on both ink cartrages, and says no comutaion with the printer.


Take the cartridges off and check the connections. Make sure that there is no dust or debris on the contacts. Also take some Alcohol on a swab and clean both areas with it. I would recommend a clean swab for each contact so you do not cross contaminate the leads. When you put the cartridges back in make sure that they seat all the way. I know that there are some cases where the cartrages look like they are seated properly but not.

New Ink cartridges registering as empty ...


Is it an HP printer? We had the same problem at work with print cartridges purchased at Staples. They have a major quality control problem. Your new print cartridge may be empty or dried out (died on the shelf). It's my problem at work, as I have over 80 HP deskjets, and Purchasing still insists on buying the Staples cartridges rather than the HP.

Sometimes if you shake a print cartridge really hard it may correct the problem. However, I would buy or borrow a black HP print cartridge and try it out in your printer. Works almost every time on the job. Good luck.

Lexmark Printer X125,type 4412-001, S/N 044L132066


Your printer actually does not run windows (just for your information). Anyway, I suggest you try installing the driver which is located here. If the problem persists, try printing an alignment page. The printer may also have an option for cleaning print heads which you can also try.

If non of the above solutions solve your problem, you may have a defective black cartridge.
