Question about HP Computers & Internet
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.

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.
