Question about HP Photosmart C3180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

How can I clean the printheads of my C-3100 series All-In-One printer (PhotoSmart C3150) toi get full color prints? I can't believe that HP hasn't included a manual or automatic head cleaning function in this machine - isn't every printer equipped with a way to clean the ink spurts in the head to flow more evenly??? Your thoughts out there? Thanks. songbook24@gmail.com

Hp photosmart c3150 keeps color light and check cartridge light keeps bliking after replacing with a new one.


It sounds like you ink cartridge is electrically bad; you can run the diagnostic 'tap 41' test to confirm. The HP 31xx printer 'access procedure' will be very similar to this HP Fxxx series access procedure:

HP C3150 is printing green instead of yellow. How do i get yellow?


You should first check your ink levels to make sure you have enough of all colors. Do this through the printer toolbox on your pc. If the ink levels are fine you should print out a diagnostic page. Follow these steps to print out a test page: 1. Press and hold the cancel button 2.Press the start copy color button. 3. Release both buttons.
If there were problems with the test page run the clean print cartridges utility. This can be found in the printer toolbox in the device services tab.
If that fails as well, you should look at replacing your ink cartridges with new ones.

Magenta and pink don't print color well, have lines in it and are not the color they should be, HP Photosmart C6280 All-In-One printer. Issues with indivial print heads, cartridges are full, color is not...


Is your other color heads are working fine? Have you tried doing the printhead cleaning process. While giving print, just click properties in the page. Go to settings and you can continue with the software wise cleaning process. To do it manually, just visit this link.

It is not related to color issues but simply to unavailability of drivers in Vista/Window 7 for the HP Laserjet 3100/3150.
