Question about HP Inkjet 1200dn Printer

1 Answer

Good Morning, In the manual for our HP Business Inkject 1200 it indicates to see "Maintaining the printheads". I am unable to find this in the manual. How do we maintain the printheads? Printed documents are very, very poor with only a portion of the document printing and the printing is very light and sporadic.

Press the info button (to the left of the on button) and you will get a status report about the ink cartridges and printheads.

The printheads are inside the main body of the printer and can be ordered using the part number on the status report.

Also see this page from the HP web site.

What does the third light from the left indicate? I have no manual and can't print one to find out. The blinking just started and now printer will not print at all in any mode.

From the left - Light 1 is ink cartridge, (color indicates which ink) Light 2 is Print head, light 3 is configuration, 4 is cancel, 5 is resume , 6 is power.
Probably it's out of yellow ink.

Here's the HP page for your printer :

We have installed new inkjet cartridges for the inkjet 1200 printer, however there is no inkflow on the paper when printing documents. Please advise on what to do

Sounds like you need to replace the printheads. The business inkjet printers have seperate ink and prinheads. In home use printer models the printer cartridge is all in one with ink and printhead in one unit.

HP business inkject 1200 won't print footers

Make sure you have the correct page size in the software.

I don't think this printer will allow you to print in the last 12mm of the page as it needs this to hold the paper while printing.

Click this link for the main support page

The user manual includes a section on maintaining the printheads, which I believe is what you want.

Callibrating after every job

With the printer on remove the printhead and turn the printer off. Turn the printer back on again without the printhead and let restart. Once the printer has finished the startup process reinstall the printhead. Let us know if that works and please don't forget to rate this posting.
