If your power light is off and the paper and ink lights are flashing try this.
1. remove all the paper,
2. open the cover and check for paper jam
3. make sure the ink cartridge lid is securley in place by opening and re closing the ink cartridge lid
reclose the lid, disconnect the power supply and hold the power button for 30 seconds. reinstall the power plug and turn the printer back on.

Large ink spill. Printer no longer recognized new black cartridge.


You can perform the Tap 41 Cartridge Health Diagnostics Test: [applies to HP Deskjet 6800/6900/9800]
http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1741 (refer to 2nd video to understand how to read the printed pattern)

1. With printer power on, press and hold the POWER button.
2. Press the Cancel (X) button four (4) times.
3. Press the RESUME button (Down Arrow) once.
4. Release the POWER button.
5. The Diagnostic Test Report should print.

--- A good HP 93/95/97/99 color cartridge should display 600 good nozzles, while a good HP 92/94/96/98 black ink cartridge should show 672 good nozzles. If the results yield anything different then the ink cartridge is likely damaged and will need to be replaced. Refer to 2nd video on how to read the printout: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1741


---- If the printer attempts to print the diagnostic test pattern (1 page) then the printer is generally considered operational and functional, if nothing is printed, but the printer attempts to print the pattern, then the tri-color ink cartridge is either empty, clogged or severely electrically damaged (black ink cartridge is not used). You can remove the tri-color cartridge, reactivate the tap 41 test and the printer will print the diagnostic test print in black ink (special "ink back-up mode").

SeeTroubleschooting and Routine Maintenace chapter in user's quite.see clean unable 51 to MFC-230C


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
"Unable 51" is most likely a print head issue. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. To attempt to resolve it, do the following:

(1) Open the printer
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water or a mix of hot water and isopropyl alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now


Your problem will be solved.

My HP Office Jet printer is about 10 years old. Just recently it has been printing only in shades of red. No other color except black works good? I have changed the cartridge twice and same thing, so...


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Sir if your printer just prints red shades then it Most likely this is a print head issue. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. To attempt to resolve it, do the following:
(1) Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. If for some reason it does not follow these instructions:(a) Unplug the printer (b) Manually slide the carriage over until you can get the ink cartridges out.(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water or a mix of hot water and isopropyl alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges(6) Try to print something now
If that does not work then you have one of two possibilities:(1) One of the ink cartridges is defective and causing the error(2) If it's definitely not that, then the print head will need to be replaced.
I hope this solution helps you.Don't hesitate to let me know if you have some confusion.
Sir, Your Rating as Maximum Stars and Words of Appreciation will be esteemed.

I have an on screen message saying ink absorber is full and printer will not print


Hello,
You can reset the counter for ink absorber using a software tool:
http://www.ziddu.com/download/2620692/IPtools.zip.html
Follow these steps:
1. Unplug power 2. Open door and hold power button
3. Connect power
4. Close door, then release power button
5. Open IPtool, choose your printer model from the dropdown box and then in Waste ink container section click Reset Main.
Although this will solve you problem temporarily I suggest you to send the printer in service for changing the absorber which is something like a sponge inside the printer. Otherwise at some time ink will leak out of your printer and your printings will we soiled with ink too.
Hope this helps. Alex

(1) Open the printer
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water to thoroughly clean the print head and each ink cartridge.

(2) If it's definitely not that, then the print head will need to be replaced.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

The printer connects to the computer and pulls pages through fine, but the pages are coming out blank. I've replaced the ink and cleaned the nozzles but nothing will get it to print!


Hello.

I know you've cleaned the printheads, but try this method:

(1) Open the printer
(2) Remove the color ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water to thoroughly clean the print head.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now

If that does not work then the print head(s) may need to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

After installing re-filled ink cartridges, both color and back & white, the printer message that shows ink level still shows low level ink? How do we resolve?


Hello,

Try this procedure:
1. Open printer lid so cartridges move to center of carriage.
2. Lift clamp and remove black or color cartridge from the holder.
3. Place cartridge on table with copper contact strip facing you.
4. Carefully place a strip of clear plastic tape over the four contacts on the upper left corner of the cartridge.
5. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position.
6. Open lid and remove cartridge again. Remove tape from left side and place tape over four contacts at upper right corner of cartridge.
7. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position again.
8. Open lid again, remove cartridge, remove tape.
9. Reinstall cartridge and close lid.
Printer will now recalibrate. Once the process is complete the ink level meter should be reading full again.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.
