Question about HP Photosmart D7560 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have an HP Photosmart D7560 printer. It worked fine until it was left with no cartridges in it for a few weeks. Put in 5 new cartridges and it would only print black. Tried various head cleaning and flushing methods, got it to print yellow for a while. Bought a new printhead and it still only prints black, not sure if it's photo black or regular black.

You may need to clean them manually. Take out each cartridge, clean its electronic panel with tissue soaked in a bit of methylated spirit. Also clean the area of contact in the carriage for each cartridge.
If patiently and carefully done all the colours will begin to print; so long as they are still flowing at the nozzle (not dried at the nozzle). To check if they are not dried at the nozzles, apply folded tissue to each cartridge nozzle and press gently, upon removing it, it should come out well/stained with the respective colour. If not you should place in a saucer or plate with a bit of water. Leave for about ten minutes. Then apply the folded tissue again. Ink should blot it well now. If not it means your ink is dried out and you may need to replace that cartridge.

Good luck and God bless!

    I took out the cartridges and cleaned the contacts with something made for electrical stuff and that did no good. What finally worked: I took out the cartridges and head, pressed one cartridge at a time into the head and blew into the vent hole in the cartridge until ink came out of the print head. Now it works!

Error code 0xc19a0023

I went crazy trying to fix my HP D7560, days and days of print ink failure, unable to align cartridges, until to clean print heads. My symptom is that the black ink started to print only in a light gray. I tried everything from running Tools, changing to new cartridges, even buying a new print head (which was not genuine HP, they don't make them anymore, and the new print head would'n't complete in diagnostics without error). I love this printer and didn't want to part with it. So I searched for days and tried many solutions without success. Until I found this one last solution - it my last ditch effort. The solution is to get a bowl of very hot water (not boiling), remove the print head from the printer and place the print head directly in the hot water (sounds risky! but I did it). I watched as the bowl filled with black ink. The instructions said to let it sit for 5-10 minutes, but I couldnt' believe the amount of ink that poured out of the print head. So, I kept replacing the water and shaking the print head carefully in the water to loosen the trapped ink. I repeated this step (replacing water) until it was no longer producing black cloud of ink and water was fairly clear. I carefully dried the print head with a paper towel, let sit for approx 5 minutes to dry some more, shook it vigorously a few times to shake out any water, and then lastly hit it with a blast of compressed air to ensure all water droplets were gone. I put the print head back in, re-inserted the cartridges and the printer ran through diagnostics automatically - aligning cartridges and printing a test page - it was BEAUTIFUL!!!! Until I tried this, nothing worked. I'm hoping this solution will help others. Good luck.

The electronics on the cartridge have gone bad. Sometimes cartridges short. Take the cartridge back to where you bought it (they should give you credit for any remaining ink) and buy a new cartridge.
