HP Photosmart C7180 printer with clogged print head.


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required. Also try - Removing the print head, run it under hot water for 2 mins, then let soak for 10 min. then used a can of compressed air to dry thoroughly. It may fix the blocked nozzles.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

Error 46 I believe I can reset the page counter, how do I do this?


Hi, this error is displayed because the printer has performed a preset number of printhead purging and flushing operations, and the ink absorber and the waste flushing box is full.

CAUTION
If you reset the counter without replacing the ink absorber and the flushing box, you can end up with ink flowing out of the printer, all over your desk! It happens! I have seen several messed up desks and carpets stained with ink.

To reset the Counter (After you have replaced the parts mentioned)

  1. Put the device into 'Maintenance mode' - Press Menu and Black(mono) Start keys, next press the up arrow 4 times to make the device enter the Maintenance mode. It should beep for one second and then display MAINTENANCE on the LCD.
  2. Press 8 and 0 keys to enter machine log mode
  3. Press the Black (mono) Start key several times until the 'Purge' or 'Flushing' count comes up on the LCD
  4. Press the 2, 7, 8, and 3 keys in this order to reset the count
  5. Press Stop/Exit key to return to initial Maintenance mode
  6. Press the 9 key twice to exit and return to normal operation.

Good luck

Hp c7820 printer 02 black catridge


Open the printer and remove the ink. Clean around the ink carriage and the under the ink with alcohol and a cotton swab. Pay special attention to areas with copper contacts. Keep in mind too that some printers will not print, even with full ink, if the exact type of ink it expected you to have installed is not right. Double check that the ink is correct against the manual or written instructions inside the printer using the number not the shape or color of the cartridge. Not every cartridge that fits the printer necessarily works.

DCP 117C Brother ink jet printer: Although ink cartridge is filled, is showing black nearly empty error message. No black is getting through on test printing after head cleaning procedure.


two diffrent errors:

1. near empty. I guess your cart is at full level.: Take cart out. unplug dcp from power. leave scanner open. replug to power. machine will come up and demanding cart. insert cart. close cover. answer display if its changed!

2. press menu then start bk-copy then four times arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press by help of arrow-up and set: 7 (set) 6 (set) 3 (set) start bk-copy. machine will do a power purge cleaning. when finished press 9 (set) 9 to leave maintenance mode. run a test print and set date/time again!

Brother MFC-440CN won't print color


Did you use generic carts?

Do use only original brother ink carts!
Only these have special cleaning fluids mingled with the ink.

There are several advantages, too:


You can run a special cleaning mode (DO insert original carts at first!!!)

Press menue then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow-up.
machine should switch to maintenance mode (buttons will flash).
press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink within the tubes and the print head and run a special cleaning routine. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy to run a power cleaning. leave the maintenance mode by pressing 9 then 9.

The machine should print without proböems. If there is a poor quality left, the printhead is affected by bad ink and cant be fixed anymore.
