    Was there a small latch to close on top of the cartridge? Is there anything preventing the cover from closing completely Did you press the green button after closing? Try turning the printer off and on.

There are many videos on you tube to clean the cartridges. They are pretty good. One additional suggestion remove all cartridges and use any good contact cleaner to wipe the contacts on all the cartridges well. Your black cartridge may be just blocked. One of the videos suggested making a cleaner with household ammonia and isopropyl alcohol. Put it onto a lint free tissue on the pad and let the head soak in it for a day or two and run the cycle again.

Ummm ... "rubbing alcohol" contains oil.

When i started to print it always gets errors ..always appears "cancel printing"..

Possible that there are errors in the software and so needs a reset. So remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can
also be poor ink cartridge contacts

How I can refill my HP 27 Cartridge at home...


please follow the instructions........

  • 1

    Purchase an ink refill kit that is specific for the HP 27 color ink cartridge. Look over the packaging to insure that it states that the kit is for the particular make and model. Using other types of cartridges may not work properly.

  • 2

    Place several paper towels down to prevent any ink residue from damaging other objects. Place the ink cartridge onto the paper towels. Put on a pair of rubber gloves to prevent ink from staining hands.

  • 3

    Peel off the top label gently from the cartridge.

  • 4

    Observe the three holes that are located on top of the cartridge. There is a solo hole located near a rectangular tab that protrudes and two other holes located next two rectangular indentations into the plastic on the top of the cartridge.

  • 5

    Take a toothpick and gently stick it down inside each hole to verify the color. Take a sharpie marker and mark next to each hole with the correct coloring for ease. Use "M" for the magenta color, "Y" for yellow and "B" for blue.

  • 6

    Take a piece of masking tape and place over two of the holes to prevent ink spillage from mixing into other color positions.

  • 7

    Read over the ink cartridge refill kit for the appropriate amount of ink needed to fill the syringe with the correct color for the uncovered hole.

  • 8

    Expel any excessive ink from the syringe. Insure that you have the correct amount of ink by following the markers on the side of the syringe.

  • 9

    Place a paper towel over the end of the syringe and while holding the tip upwards, gently press or tap the syringe plunger to expel any air.

  • 10

    Insert the syringe needle into the appropriate color hole until the tip hits the bottom of the cartridge. Pull the syringe up a little from the bottom of the cartridge to prevent blockage when expelling ink.

  • 11

    Expel the ink into the color hole slowly. Stop if ink begins to protrude out of the color hole. Take a cotton swab and gently wipe the outside of the color hole and then cover with tape.

  • 12

    Take the syringe apart and rinse thoroughly to prevent ink colors from blending. Take a cotton swab and dry out the inside of the syringe.

  • 13

    Repeat above steps for the remaining two color positions that are left.

  • 14

    Gently take a needle and put a hole in each tape that covers the color holes for ventilation. Allow the cartridge to sit for at least one hour after completing refill instructions.

  • 15

    Reattach the original top label.

  • Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

    My computer comes on with the screen saying, Internal Lan Mac Address (then numbers) Hardware monitor... More info, that's all

    This appears to be part of a generic problem possibly caused due to power surges in your area…A "soft" reset might work.

    As recommended by HP on these types of errors:

    1: Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the product, but leave the product turned on.
    2. Open the cover of the product and remove the print cartridges.
    3. Close the cover and wait for the Insert Ink Cartridges message to display.
    4. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product and wait for one minute.
    5. Reconnect the power cord. If the product does not automatically turn on, press the Power button.
    6. Open the cover and reinsert the print cartridges.
    7. Close the cover. If prompted, print a calibration page.
    8. Reconnect the USB cable, and try to print a print job from the computer.

    If this works, please grade the answer... If the steps don’t work I would recommend you check with HP.

    The solution center shows a question mark on both ink cartrages, and says no comutaion with the printer.

    Take the cartridges off and check the connections. Make sure that there is no dust or debris on the contacts. Also take some Alcohol on a swab and clean both areas with it. I would recommend a clean swab for each contact so you do not cross contaminate the leads. When you put the cartridges back in make sure that they seat all the way. I know that there are some cases where the cartrages look like they are seated properly but not.

    How do I check levels of ink on my HP Photosmart c6300 all in one. Thank You CJ

    There are two ways to do this:
    Method 1 Check the back of your computer to make sure that the printer is appropriately connected to the computer and is plugged in. If the printer is not plugged into the computer, find the printer jack on the back of the computer and plug it in before you move on to the next step.Click on the "Start" menu button which is located on bottom left hand corner of your screen. Click on the "Settings" bar and notice that a list of functions pop up to the left of the settings button. Click on the control panel icon.Look for the printer/fax icon in the control panel window. Double click on the printer icon.Find the icon for your printer in the opened window and right click on the icon. Now click on the "Preferences" option.Look for the menu box pop up with tabs near the top of the box. Click on the "Services" tab.Click on "Service this device." You will find the button on the Services menu that you just activated.Click on the estimated ink level tab and a graphic will appear indicating how much ink is left in the cartridge.OR Method 2 Click Start and select HP Solution Center . Select the Settings menu, then the Print Settings submenu, and finally the Printer Toolbox .
    The Printer Toolbox opens. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab. A cartridge may be running out of ink even if the graphic shows ink remaining (see the note at the start of this section). Lines or streaks always appear in printouts when the cartridges begin to run out of ink. Replace print cartridges that are out of ink or low on ink. Figure 1: Estimated ink levelsc00677193.gif

    My C46 has been spoiled by someone who can get into my home. It will not allow the paper to go through It is grabbed on the right and goes to the left. I've tried finding something to change about it. ...

    Typically there is a small bit of paper that is stuck somewhere in the paper path. It is now probably black with ink and will be hard to see. Usually running some card stock through the printer will clear it. But if necessary, manually push some thin plastic (maybe from some clothes packages) back and forth through the paper path, especially at the edges to try and dislodge the offending clog.

    What you don't see is that when you close the cover the ink cartridge moves back and forth, grabbing the edge of the paper on the right and pushing it to the left. There may also be a piece of paper stuck on the ink cartridge head or carriage. Remove the ink cartridge, inspect the head and place where it moves to see if there isn't a bit of paper stuck there (again, will be saturated with ink). Use same process to remove. Try not to use a knife or other sharp object as it might damage the printer.

    i think you already need to clean your equipment.

    this is part of the manual of your equipment and follow their tips to prevent damage.

    go to this link:
    to download the files.

    Section 5: Maintenance and Troubleshooting


    The Power/Ink button can tell you what is happening inside
    the Publisher. Please refer to the following:
    Power/Ink Button Publisher
    Fast Flashing The Publisher is initializing.You will see this
    pattern when the Publisher is first turned on.
    Wait until the lights stop blinking before
    opening software or starting jobs.
    Slow Flashing The cover is open and the ink cartridge carrier
    is in change position. Insert a new cartridge
    and close the cover. (The slow flashing light
    can also indicate an out of media condition,
    a robotic error or a picking problem. However,
    these conditions are always paired with a error
    message on screen.)


    NOTE: Do NOT attempt to oil or grease the Publisher's Robotic Arm shaft
    or other components. You will likely cause more harm than good!
    Any moving parts are designed to operate for the life of the machine
    with no additional lubrication required.
    Use a clean, lint-free rag with a small amount of ammonia
    window cleaner to clean the Publisher's outside case and
    trays. This type of cleaner is very effective on inks that may
    accumulate on the printer tray. Stronger cleaning solutions are
    NOT recommended because they may damage the paint and
    plastic materials from which the parts are manufactured.
    Always disconnect your Publisher's power cords before
    cleaning. Resume operation only after the surfaces are
    completely dry.


    To ensure that everything is working properly, a Self-Test
    feature is built in to your Publisher. In this mode, the Robotic
    Disc Transporter will go through the motions of picking and
    placing a disc to ensure proper working order. This test may be
    performed without connecting the Publisher to the PC.
    Perform the test by doing the following steps:
    • Load some discs into the Input Bin.
    • Open the cover.
    • Press and hold the power button for five seconds. The test
    will start.
    • To stop the test, close the cover and press the power


    It may be necessary to clean the ink cartridge nozzles if you
    notice reduced print quality, or if you suspect an cartridge nozzle
    has become slightly dried out or clogged. If you are having
    print quality problems, follow the steps below:
    1. Remove the print cartridge.
    2. Moisten a lint-free cloth with water.
    3. Hold the cloth against the
    nozzles for three seconds.
    This will “wick” some
    additional ink onto the damp
    4. Wipe in one direction only.
    5. Repeat the process


    If you have difficulties in operating your Publisher, the
    procedures in this manual and the software User's Guide
    should, in most cases, solve the problem. If you still have
    difficulty, contact the technical support number listed on the
    insert included in the supply pack that came with your
