Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

I have a hp officejet 9110 which is fine in the morning but by lunchtime keeps making a noise like it's trying to print, even though I'm not printing anything. Also, the orange warning light flashes very briefly. Please help!

The printer is cleaning the ink-jets / print heads by dumping ink
into a special spittoon. The self-cleaning typically occurs:

1) When you turn the printer ON
2) When you shut it OFF
3) At the start of every print job
4) At the start of every page
5) At the end of every print job
6) Periodically during the day, for no reason at all
7) Any other time the printer feels like it !!!
....
Often all the buttons including the power switch are disabled,
during this operation in order to stop you from interfering
with HP's business plan.

Should you dare to unplug the cord during a cleaning cycle,
the printer will "discipline" you by entering into 45 minute
deep cleaning cycle the next time you turn it on.
===
The idea is to waste as much ink as possible, so that you
run out and buy more, typically exceeding the original
purchase cost of the printer.

Solution:
-------------
Buy the cheapest printers you can get your hands on,
avoid vampires like HP, spend less than $50,
make sure they include a FULL cartridge of ink,
and throw the printer in the garbage when the ink
runs out. :)

Also, avoid "all in ones" like the plague,
buy a (B&W) Brother Laser Jet and a separate scanner
for most of your work. The toner will last for ever.

Use an Ink-jet for photos only, and print your photos all
at the same time, to minimize random head cleaning
cycles.

Hope this explains it,
please rate my answers.

Horizontal pink & blue lines across color pictures that I print.


In the past when I have seen this on my old printers, it is the color cartridge. Eithe the haed is cloged or it needs to be replaced. You could try to take the color cartridge and set the print head(copper colored end) on a damp towel for a little while and see if it will release the clog. (HP uses mostly water base inks and they dry out sometimes) Then wipe the head on a dry cloth. Reinstall and try again. You should also have software for HP to prime the head and clean it. Try that and if you still have problem, replace color cartridge.

HP OfficeJet 9110 Printhead Problem


This is the official way of cleaning HP print heads. I just totally dissasembled my HP 80 print head, and found that on the inside of the print head there was a giant glob of ink that was between the inside of the print head and a metal mesh filter material. You need to remove this glob, can only be done by opening the cartridge. Good luck, tell me what happened.

Cannot print in color on HP OfficeJet 9110 All-in-One


Nothing to do with the driver, I'd say the cartridges are your problem, skipping lines and missing colour are indications of needing new ink carts, are carts new HP ones?

Adjusting printheads - won't stop and keeps printing blank pages


Hi Did you have any print jobs sent to the printer before replacing the printhead. It seems that the printer is trying to print a job and since the usb cable has been disconnected and reconnected the printer is printing blank pages or misc text.

HP software comes with a head cleaning option.. run that thru 3x and make sure you clean all of the printer ink cartridge using rubbing alcohol.
