I have a hp photosmart C5580 that after accepting generic ink cartridges all of a sudden won't accept them. They were working 24 hours ago. How can I get it to accept them. I can't afford the HP ones...


When you say generic cartridges, are you referring to 'compatibles' that you purchased on-line? If so, you are rolling the dice with those since often they can easily suffer internal micro-electronic malfunctions - sorry no money back guarantee with those. It is suggested you purchase new HP OEM (genuine) cartridges, use them and then go get them refilled at either Costco (most USA/Canada locations) or Fry's Electronics (all locations)...you'll save ~50% on the cost when refilling. Anything goes wrong you can bring them back. :-)

With respect to your current 'generic' cartridge problem, you can validate the HP74/75 cartridge's electrical health by running the 'Tap 41' diagnostics test report. Refer to video procedure on how to activate and read the service test report for your C5580 printer: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=536

1. Load Letter/A4-size paper into paper feed tray.
2. If any lights are blinking, first press Cancel to attempt to clear.
3. Press and HOLD the Cancel button, press Ok button once.
4. At 'Mfg Commands' menu, click Right Arrow once until 'uiaux service' menu is displayed.
5. At 'uiaux service' menu, click the Right Arrow until Special Reports menu is displayed.
6. Select Ok, then click Right Arrow until the 'print-mech button tap' menu is displayed.
7. Select Ok (Code = 0 will be displayed); click and hold Right Arrow until 'code = 41' is displayed. Use the Left Arrow if you need to decrease numerical count.
8. Select Ok. Within one minute the Tap 41 diagnostic test report should be initiated and print (whether ink cartridges are good or not, i.e. this is a forced print test). See following 4 paragraphs (or video) on how to interpret diagnostic report.....

--- Providing the color cartridge is partially functioning the Tap 41 diagnostic test print will be printed (this is a forced service print test which is mainly used for the evaluation of ink cartridge electrical health). A good HP 75/75XL color cartridge should display 600 good nozzles, while a good HP 74/74XL 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 video on how to read the printout.

Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and please try to print a printer self test.

Good Luck!!!!!

Myhp photosmart c5580 all-inone print cartridge alinment failed what do I do


1. Get a damp paper towel.
2. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
3. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.
4. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
5. Snap the cartridges back into the printer. And try doing the Alignment again!!!!!
Good Luck!!!!!

Photosmart 5580. How do I turn off the annoying


Because it is a photo printer it knows that the print heads must be aligned for optimum reproduction. You get a new print head with each cart.

For the amount of ink a test page uses I can't see the reason for complaint. If you begrudge the miniscule amount of ink and are not bothered about the best possible printing then just ignore it.
