Question about HP Deskjet 6980 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

I replaced the color cartridge with a new one. The new cartridge was the wrong size. I placed the old colour cartridge back in the printer and now the printer will not work. The ink drop for the colour cartridge keeps flashing. Can you help? Lucy

Hp is known for being a pain with ink.

We once had a business jet that would not print because our ink had expired lol...

The printer wont work because it know's that the old cart has no ink. And since it needs all three colors along with black to print it will not do it, Usually you can set the printer to print only black under properties or print settings.

Other then that you will need another cartridge. You can also try one more thing. If you need to print in a Pinch, down on the right hand part of your screen, Is the clock. Double click it and change the date back a year from today and see if that helps you print

Why am I missing colors on prints


Could be the print job you send to the printer is set up to print in black and white.
Or the cartridges are full and the nozzles from the printhead are blocked.
Run a cleaning cycle on the printer. If some colour appears continue till all colours are back for all nozzles.
If you did not use he printer for a long time, remove the cartridges one by one and put a drop of cleaning fluid in the pipes in the cartridge holder (where the ink goes in) tun replace the cartridge and print one or two full sized colour photos, till all colours are back.

Colour ink cartridge not reconise. replace colour ink cartridge.cod 3603


To resolve the issue:
  1. Make sure you install the correct type of KODAK Ink Cartridge for your printer. Currently we offer two types of ink cartridges (10 Series and 30 Series). Installing the wrong type of ink cartridge may result in this error. You will need to install a new, correct type of KODAK Ink Cartridge.
    NOTE: For more information, see Which ink cartridges to buy for all-in-one printer.
  2. If you are using the correct type of KODAK Ink Cartridge, reinstall the color ink cartridge.
    1. Open the printer access door.
      NOTE: If the ink cartridges don't move to the center, see Printhead and ink cartridges don't move to center with access door open.
    2. Wait until the printhead is idle and silent, then pinch the latch on the color ink cartridge with your thumb and forefinger and lift it out of the printhead.
    3. Install the color ink cartridge back into the printer, making sure to press down on the thumb tab until it clicks into place.
    4. Close the printer access door. For printers with LCDs, follow the instructions on the LCD screen.
      For more information on installing ink cartridges, see the Extended User Guide for your printer. Review Maintaining Your Printer - Replacing ink cartridges.
  3. If the error continues, restart your printer:
    1. Turn off the printer by pressing the power button.
    2. Wait five seconds.
    3. Turn on the printer.
  4. If the error continues, and you have extra, new KODAK Ink Cartridges on-hand, try to install a new ink cartridge (or a set of new ink cartridges).
  5. If the error continues, contact us.
When the issue is resolved, we highly recommend that you upgrade the firmware for your printer for optimum performance:
  1. Locate and select the firmware for your printer.
  2. Follow the instructions to install the firmware.

I have installed new printer cartridge (Colour) and it is only printing blue. Cartridge is identical to the old one which printed OK.


I found this procedure hard to believe, but my 710C was printing black and pink only. Someone suggested taking the color cartridge and soaking the tip in hot water! I microwaved some water in a cup for 2 minutes, placed the end of the color cartridge in it for 30 minutes. I took it out and blotted with a paper towel until finally all three colors bled out. I dried throughly and put back in printer.... it works great. I might also add I had 2 new cartridges that this happened to.

The colour ink cartridge is not being identified. I have tried taking them out and putting them in again. I have powered it off and on but nothing is working. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated


Are you using Dell Series 5 ink cartridges?

Unplug the printer from the wall. Now remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. Plug everything back in. This will reset any error messages the printer has.

Power on the printer. Open the printer and take out the Dell Series 5 Black cartridge. make sure all the tape is off the cartridge and put the cartridge back in. Now do the same for the Dell Series 5 color cartridge.

Close the printer. It should print an alignment page. Any error messages?

Black cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

Photo cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges.

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

If these ink cartridges are new, then take them to the place of purchase for a refund or replacements. If they're old, then try purchasing a new Dell Series 5 ink cartridge.

Tri colour problembought to refilled cartridges one displays problem other table, is it the refilled cartridges or the printerwrong cartridge 344 not compar


Hello!
When the printer tells you "wrong cartridge", it is because it cannot recognize the cartridge.
Remove the color cartridge and gently wipe the electric contacts on it with a dry cloth. Put the cartridge back in and check for error messages.
If the problem persists, you will need to buy a new color cartridge, because the one you have is damaged- one of the contacts on it has blown, and when you place it in the printer, it won't recognize it, because one of the contacts is missing (that is why some printers give a warning sign "cartridge missing").
Hope that helps!

I have replaced both cartridges in my Lexmark printer P915 but it continues to tell me that the colour cartridge is missing can you please advise me what to do?


Please remove the color cartridge and reset it in place. Also, make sure there is nothing on the back of the cartridge where the circuit boards touch. (Plastic Cover, etc) Power off the printer and power it back on. If you still have the problem, please place the OLD cartridge back in the printer removing the new one. If it sees the old cartridge, but not the new one you need another new cartridge. The one you have may be dried out, or bad so the printer won't regonise it.

Ref: our live chat - Definitely worth replacing the colour one with a new one - some other people had identical problem and that cured it - they really don't survive not being used very well. :)
