Hello.

First, be certain that you removed the plastic strips from the ink cartridges before installing.

If removed, I'd suggest reinstalling the printer:

Go to Printers and Faxes and delete your printer icon.

Note: Here's how to delete a printer icon in Windows 7:

(1. Open Printers by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Printers.
2. Right-click the printer that you want to remove, and then click Delete.

If you can't delete the printer, right-click it again, click Run as administrator, and then click Delete. Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. )

Disconnect the USB cable.

Restart your computer.

Reconnect the USB to your computer.

Your computer should see your printer. Install the printer driver.

Hope this helps.

Step one: Complete the alignment process If you have already installed new print cartridges, follow these steps to complete the alignment process.
  1. After installing a new print cartridge, wait at least 20 seconds for the print cartridge alignment process to start.
  2. Wait for the print cartridge alignment process to fully complete.
  3. Make sure that the alignment page has printed on plain, white paper that has no other printing on it. If you need to create a new alignment page, load the tray with letter or A4 unused plain white paper and turn the product off and on again to create the page.
If an alignment page does not print when the product is turned on or off, the issue is resolved. If an alignment page continues to print when the product is turned on or off, you should replace the cartridges with new HP cartridges. Continue to Step two: Remove the print cartridges. Step two: Remove the print cartridges Follow the steps below to remove the cartridges. NOTE: When you remove and install the same print cartridge, the unit will not align the print cartridge as the unit remembers the alignment values for that print cartridge.
  1. Press the Power button to turn the product on. The Power button is lit when the unit is on. Figure 1: Power button lit c01336350.gif
  2. Make sure that the paper tray is down, and letter or A4 unused plain white paper is loaded in the paper tray.
  3. Lower the access door until it stops. Make sure that the print carriage moves to the right side. Figure 2: Lower the access door c01336351.gif
  4. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then using your thumb, lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. Figure 3: Print carriage c01336352.gif
    • If replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left.
    • If replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right.
    Figure 4: Proper position of the print cartridges c01336353.gif 1 - Tri-color print cartridge 2 - Black or Photo print cartridge
  5. Pull the print cartridge toward you and out of its slot.
Step three: Install the new print cartridge
  1. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab. Figure 5: Remove the tape c00312625.gif 1 - Copper-colored contacts 2 - Plastic tape with pink pull tab (must be removed before installing) 3 - Ink nozzles under tape CAUTION: Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles. Touching these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.c00312564.gif
  2. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Then gently push on the upper part of the print cartridge forward until it clicks into the socket.
    • If you are installing the tri-color print cartridge, slide it into the left slot.
    • If you are installing a black or photo print cartridge, slide it into the right slot.
    Figure 6: Print cartridge locations c00652788.gif 1 - Print cartridge slot for the tri-color print cartridge 2 - Print cartridge slot for the black and photo print cartridges

  4. If you installed a new print cartridge, the print cartridge alignment process starts after about 20 seconds.
  5. The unit aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print cartridge alignment sheet.
If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product. Cause The product aligns the print cartridges every time at cartridge installation or replacement to ensure the highest-quality prints. The alignment page continues to print when the product is turned on or off, or when a print job is started, for any of the reasons below.
  • The automatic alignment process is not complete.
  • The ink cartridges are not properly installed.
  • One of the ink cartridges is defective.
  • One of the ink cartridges is low or out of ink. Black and all three colors must be available.
  • Protective tape on a new ink cartridge has not been removed.

You need to take it a couple steps further after your test print. Sounds like your print heads need cleaning or your cartridge may need aligning. It’s best to do this each time you install a new cartridge. for more information….... http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-40171-printer-not-printing-black

Nothing prints out on paper.


Did you remove the little sticky tabs from each new cartridge? They allow air in, and ink out.

New ink in printer but will not put ink on paper.


It sounds like blocked nozzles to me, providing you're SURE you have good cartridges, properly installed (you did take the yellow plastic tapes off the vents before you installed the cartridges of course).

You can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves out of its parking position, pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head by hand fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Do not turn the printer on at any stage in this process. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then turn the printer on and try a head clean/nozzle check again. If nothing, repeat the process once more. If still nothing, post a new comment detailing what you have done and the results

This is a very late response to your query, but you did have it in the C46 section. It sounds like you have blocked heads but there could be other reasons such as a faulty print head or main board. If you still require help with this problem, please post a new comment to this effect.
