It could be the cartridges in the printer. Maybe it needs cleaning. Refer to this article How to Clean the Cartridges of the Lexmark Z715 in Windows. If problem continues, reseat the cartridges. Or you can try to use a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty. Thanks.

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.

I do not know how to change my printhead on my HP Officejet Pro L7580


---Make sure the printer is on, or press the Power button to turn it on. Wait for the printer to finish any warm-up diagnostics or print jobs it is performing.

---Open the access cover to the print heads. This cover may be the top cover, the front door or an ink access door on the front of the printer.

---Wait for the cartridge carriage to stop moving, making sure it is completely stationary before putting your hand in the printer. Lift up any clips or latches keeping the print heads or cartridges in place.

---Remove the old print head or ink cartridge if it is part of the cartridge, and discard it. Remove the packaging from the new print head, making sure to peel off any protective tape or twist-off protective caps.
---Insert the new print head or cartridge into the empty slot. Lower any clips or latches and make sure the print head or cartridge does not wiggle in its spot, otherwise you need to pull it out and reinsert it into the printer.

---Close the cover you opened to access the print heads and wait for the printer to calibrate the new print heads. Some printers may produce an alignment page, which you can throw away.

What color are the cartridges that you are putting in? Are they blue or are they greyish in color? If you are trying to print on laser or other such paper, you need to be using the greyish cartridges. Also make sure that the cartridges that you put in have plenty of ribbon in them and that you've put them in facing the correct direction, you should be able to see the color names when you open the printer. If you don't, you've installed them facing the wrong way. Also make sure that you have all the correct colors installed for the print job. Unless you're printing strictly in black and white, you'd be surprised at what colors are needed to make a color, unless you're using pure Cyan, Magenta or Yellow. Any colors other than those will need to use a combo of those colors to reproduce colors properly. I hope this helps. If not, write back and say what steps you've followed to try to remedy the error.

I have installed new cartridges the colour prints perfect but the black is blurred with lies through it. i also found a small t shaped rubber piece about about 4mm x 6mm in the paper tray could this be the...


this rubber piece can be actually locket from printer rollers, but, returning to your smudgy printing

1. remove cartridges from the printer
2. check if there is bit of paper stuck anywhere in paper path, if so, remove
3. check if rollers on paper path are clean
4. touch bottom of the cartridge with absorbent tissue to check if ink is flowing through, if yes then insert cartridges back and print test page.
5. if cartridge do not allow inkflow, check what solvent is used (water, isopropyl alcohol or methylated spirit - this which do not cause precipitation is correct solvent), soak absorbent paper (tissue) with proper solvent and whipe head of the cartridge with it, 6. put drop of the solvent on golden knobs inside seats of the cartridges of the printer, allow it to soak in, wipe off with lint free tissue and put another drop of solvent in. allow soak in,
7. install cartridges back, print test page, it should start printing very weak and improving as it goes through the page (solvent will be printed first)
8. create "strip page" one line yellow, white space, one line cyan, white, magenta, white, black - print that page, this print will clean printheads and establish good inkflow.

all ink printers must print at least one page per week as to keep heads free of gum and ink in flow.

Install color cartridge


You have to clear out your print queue from the computer.
The last print job you sent was set to color and so the printer now believes it needs color to print.

First you will need to unplug the power to your printer.

With windows, you need to go to your "start menu" and select "control panel" and then select "printers"

Double click on your printer icon and cancel any print jobs.

Now you can turn your printer back on.
For any future print jobs, you need to make sure you are printing in black and white.

Caution If the HP All-in-One is off when you lift the print-carriage access
door to access the print cartridges, the HP All-in-One will not release the
cartridges for changing. You might damage the HP All-in-One if the print
cartridges are not docked safely on the right side when you try to remove
them.
2. Make sure the paper tray is down and there is letter or A4 unused plain white
paper loaded in the paper tray.
3. Open the print-carriage access door by lowering the door.

4. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then, using your thumb, lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it.
If you are replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left.
If you are replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge
from the slot on the right.

only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.
8. Slide the new print cartridge forward at a slight upward angle into the empty slot.
Using your index finger, push the print cartridge forward until it clicks into place.
If the print cartridge you are installing has a white triangle on its label, slide the
print cartridge into the slot on the left. The label for the slot is green with a solid
white triangle.
If the print cartridge you are installing has a white square or a white pentagon on
its label, slide the print cartridge into the slot on the right. The label for the slot is black with a solid white square and a solid white pentagon.your HP All-in-One

White lines appearing on print


White Lines on the Printed Page ID:193 null.gif null.gif null.gif
Clean the print nozzles as follows:
  1. Go to Start, Programs, Lexmark, Lexmark Solution Center (or Lexmark Control Program) and select the Cartridges tab.
  2. Select Cartridge Nozzles (or Clean Print Nozzles).
  3. Check the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. The diagonal lines should be continuously solid from left to right, with no gaps.
  4. If there are gaps at the top that diminish at the bottom, run the Clean Print Nozzle page a few more times. If the gaps are gone, the Clean Print Nozzle page has probably resolved the problem.
  5. If the gaps still exist, you should unblock ("wick") the cartridges. See How to Unblock/Wick the Cartridge Nozzles.
    For additional help, refer to the following article: How to Clean the Maintenance Station .

My magenta will not print well


Here's what you should do. Remove all ink cartridges. Get some rubbing alcohol, preferrably 91% proof (leaves less moisture) Get a couple normal paper towels. Check each cartridge for dried ink and remove it using an alcohol wetted paper towel. (The deep cleaning procedures aren't always effective.) The gold contacts on each cartridge should be gold when you are done. Use the same procedure on the gold contacts of the ink cartridge housing inside the printer. Take your time, do it well. If that does not fix the problem, then do the following. Switch the black and magenta cartridge. Some printers won't print when you do this, other printers don't know the difference. If your printer is the later, then attempt a print job using a page that has a line of both black and magenta text. If you see a black print, then the problem is your magenta cartridge (despite having installed a new one) If the magenta prints, then you know the magenta cartridge is good. If the magenta prints but the black doesn't, then you have a printer failure. Let me know your results. ZT3000 Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
