Question about HP Photosmart C4150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have a HP Photosmart C4150 All-in-One printer. The color inkjet cartridge is leaking profusely. Much ink is now smeared in the cartridge area, both the color cartridge and black cartridge area. If I manage to clean off this ink, will the printing function still work?

The following video demonstrates how to replace the cartridges and the printhead. You do not necessarily need to replace the cartridges. Simply refer to the video for replacing the printhead, and then stop the video.
You could carefully clean this as follows:
put the printer on some newspaper to avoid further spills.
Turn on the printer, then open the lid to allow the carriage to move to the center.
Now unplug the printer, then gently move the carriage to the left and out of the way.
You should now have limited access to the spittoon area.
You can clean this area by carefully scooping out the ***** of ink with a plastic spoon. (Be careful not to drop ink sludge on your printer, desk, carpet or clothing.)
Once most of the ink has been removed then use a crumpled paper towel to soak up the ink in the bottom of the service station.
It may take several rounds of this to clean up the service station.
It is not necessary to completely clean the service station, just get the majority of the ink out.
Once this has been completed you could turn the printer up and clean the bottom area of the printer. Do not tip up the printer before the service station has been cleaned or you are likely to create a mess....

Hp c4150 printer won't recognize my refilled black 98 cartridge. first time it has been refilled. how do i reset the printer to accept the refilled cartridge?


Dear jiraphe102,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

Unfortunately, you have the particular brand of cartridge that cannot be refilled. The smart chip on the original cartridge has expired; and will not reset.
You can purchase refurbished Ink online (meaning they have rebuilt the entire cartridge) at the link below.

Refurbished Ink

Or buy new cartridges.

Have a great day!

What kind of ink do i need for my photosmart c4100


The best cartridge for your printer, quite naturally, will be compatible with the printer model. The best inks are those of HP ink cartridges -this lowers the chance of smearing and clogging. Most printer manufacturers, however, have begun to make cartridges that are compatible with most HP inkjet printers, so the quality of printing is always top notch. When selecting a new cartridge, user must always be aware of what type of printer he is using. Remember, the best cartridge should always be compatible with the printer.
