Question about HP DesignJet 1050c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printhead replacement every week or 2 this hp 1050+ plotter says to replace printheads. the user has replaced them each time and then a couple weeks later it calls for new printheads again, so far just the color printheads, not the black in case that means something. it sounds like electronics (a board) to me. Anyone familiar with this symptom?

I don't just change the printheads, go to utilities and recover printheads.
If all printheads are playing up, che3ck the magenta cleaner, if it's over full it can cause all printheads to fail, this info was taken from a page on the HP web page, but ?I can't remeber where.

Error code E161-403F


I have had two of my Canon plotters give this error.message, I had to manually move the carriage unit and replace the printhead. On one of the plotters the error message returned, on the second plotter I was able to go into service mode where it asked me to replace the printhead. I just went though the motions since the printhead was brand new and I was able to get the plotter to function correctly.

I have a Designjet 5500ps Printer and it is leaking blue ink, when printing, all my research indicates that I need to replace the carriage tube connector, but I am unable to find the replacement part.


Hi there

May be you can try to contact any Authorised HP Service centre for your probelm. Could you give me your correct location so i can tell you whome to contact?

Alternatively you can try to see where the leakage is taking place and try to seal it with silicon sealent so it can atleast last untill someone attends to the probelm from HP.

The technical term for it is INK TUBE ASSY. But make sure and tell the HP people about the size of the plotter that is 42" or 60" and also keep the Product Number and Sl. No. of the machine handy which is required by HP technical team. (You can find it at the back of the plotter)

Officejet Pro L7590 printhead message (printheads only 2m. old)!


Pull out the printhead from the computer and check the date under "warranty ends" If the warranty period did not lapse, call HP technical support and tell them about the problem. They will replace the printhead for free. I have gone through 3 black/yellow printheads and I received the replacement printheads via FedEx within 1-2 days. They will send you a pre-paid envelope to return via U.S. Postal Service via US Postal Service.

If the Warranty date on the printhead expired, then you may have to come out of pocket to replace the printhead since HP will argue that they are not obligated to replace the printhead since the manufacturer warranty lapsed.

If this is the case, check to see when you purchased the printer. If the purchase was within a year, the retailer (i.e. Best Buy) is on the hook since there is a 1 year implied warranty on products such as printers, regardless of whether the expiration date on the HP printhead expired.

Hope this helps

Printheads are available everywhere, you replace them your self. Machine will usually indicate just one bad print head at a time.

Code Error 79:04, 86:01 y 81:01


79:04: Check the usage and expiry dates on the printheads to start with. Have you refilled them with third-party ink? Even if you have before and haven't gotten this message, your printer might have just picked up on it. Particularily, if you have recently done a firmware upgrade.

Try taking out your printheads and see if it boots up. If it does, then there is a good chance that it's a printhead related issue. Once again, check the expiry dates.

If the error persists, try to re-seat your formatter if you have one.
Try restarting the printer with no printheads or cartridges or media and insert them one by one.

If the error comes up with one specific printhead or cartridge, you may want to replace it, expired or not. And replace it with an HP product designed for your specific printer.

Damage done by third-party products will not be covered by original warranty, or extended.

Final suggestion, is look at the conteacts on the back of the printheads. Are they dirty with ink or grime? What about the contacts in the printer. If they are, I would suggest using a SLIGHTLY damp coffee filter and gently wiping up and down until they are clean. DO NOT wipe horizontally or in circles. It may cause scratches to the contacts which could further damage them. Wipe them vertically with a DRY coffee filter, or allow them to completely air dry before re-inserting them. Before you re-insert them, reboot the printer with nothing in it, and insert them one by one.

For any further assistance, I suggest phoning HP Technical Support.

Best of luck.

Print head failures HP 1050c


the tube system has an air leak causing a dryfire situation. air + printheads = damaged printheads. most users replace the black printhead more often than the colors. the seal where the printhead feed pin fits into the carriage is the end of the tube system. the hole in the seal becomes to large and doesn't properly seal the air out. order the tube system. complete and concise instructions are included in the box for tube replacement. this is considered an end user replaceable part. good luck! please rate this!
