My HP Photosmart c7280 will not print pink or magenta. How can I fix this issue?


Sounds very much like you have a clogged printer head you should run the deep clean procedure form the printer dialog. If that does not fix the issue you may need to replace the print head.

Remove print head?


The instruction to remove the printer head are likely on you tube. Usually they just snap in and out. Once you get it out. Run warm water over it for about 3-4 minutes. Once it's rinsed dry it with a hair dyer. Don't worry about distiller water. Drinking water works great. Snap it back in and try it. Good luck!

I have been printing photos and they have come out beautiful. Suddenly the colors are all muted, and brown hair has a green tint. My printer is an HP 6180. Nothing has changed - same paper, ink...


It sounds like one of the colors is not printing correctly. I would suggest , opening your hp solutions center programs and under tools you will find an option to clean the print heads. Follow the procedure to cleans the print heads, after cleaning open control panel on the computer and depending on the operating system click on "printers" (XP) or "devices and printers"(vista win7) right click on your printer( hit your right mouse button) select " printer properties" click on print test page. This page will print out showing each of the colors separately. You should see black, blue, pink and yellow. If one of these colors is missing or muted you will now which color is cratinging the issue. And at that time I would try changing the corresponding ink cartridge. Hopefully the print head cleaning will resolve your issue

The pink and magenta cartridges won't print. We have replaced them again thinking the cartridges were faulty, but still we just get yellow print. HP Photosmart C7280 All-in_One


Sounds like you need to run a printhead cleaning cycle. Dried inks can block nozzles - if they're blocked no amount of cartridge changing will make them work.

I have an HP Photosmart C3180 printer color ink issue. Instead of printing yellow its printing pink. I've cleaned the head multiple times and the ink cartridge is brand new. Please advise. Thanks!


If what you're saying is still the result after cleaning everything up, there must already be something wrong with the printhead because the printheads are the one's that are responsible for the mixture of the ink cartridges.
Try calling HP Tech Support. They might still be able to replace the printheads for you.

Put in new ink and it still won't pick up the pink and maroon. When I print the red tones they look yellow cause these cartriges arn't being used. How do I get the printer to grab these colors. It won't...


You must perform the "clean head" utility.
Go to
[Start]
[Printers and Faxes]
right-click on your printer and select [Properties]
[Maintenance] tab
Clean print head or other maintenance utilities.
You may have to do this 2 or 3 times.

Blurry printing in a year old hp photosmart c4385, i've already cleaned the cartridges and realigned them. what else can i do other than replace the unit?


Look where the heads park when not printing, then make the heads go to center (cartridge changing procedure). Under the area where the heads park is a head cleaning pad that gets soaked with ink. Fish this pad out (wear rubber gloves) and squeeze the ink out as best you can. Try washing the ink out with soapy water, or use rubbing alcohol if the water won't touch it. Let dry, and reinstall as before. Run head cleaning process several times. Hope that helps.

try resetting the printer using the # and the number 6 buttons,holding them down and then inserting the power cord at the back of the printer.
see if it works.
