Yeah, the only thing that can cause this is paper feed problems.

There must be either something loose in the paper feed mech (look for wobbling "tires") or there is still some paper or other foreign debris in the paper feed path.

How to change ink in HP Deskjet F480 printer???


  • Check the ink levels by opening the HP Solution Center. Click on "Settings." Click on "Toolbox." Click on "Services." Click on "Service this device." Click on "Estimated Ink Levels." A graphic will appear showing the estimated ink level in each cartridge.
  • 2 Verify that the unit is on. Open the print cartridge door allowing the print carriage to move to the far right side of the unit. Once the print carriage has stopped, lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot. To replace the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. To replace the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right. Place the cartridge in a plastic bag as it may still contain some residual ink and may leak.
  • 3 Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging. Remove the plastic tape by using the pull tab, being careful to not touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink nozzles under tape.
  • 4 Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Gently push the upper part of the print cartridge until it clicks into place. The tri-color print cartridge fits into the left slot. The black or photo print cartridge fits into the right slot.
  • 5 Close the print cartridge door. If the print cartridge alignment sheet prints, load it on the left front corner of the scanner glass with the top of the page to the left. Verify that there is plain paper loaded in the input tray, and then press the "Scan" button to align the printer.

    How do I change ink cartridge on my HP inkjet 6500 wireless printer.


    Hi, When using refilled print cartridges, the Estimated Ink level and the Printer Status Window may indicate that the print cartridge is out of ink. Either continue to use the print cartridge until print quality degrades, or replace the print cartridge with a new HP print cartridge.

    The methods of replacing the ink cartridge of the printer follows here:
    Open the printer cover
    The printer ink carriage will automatically goes to center
    Once the carriage is in the center, the printer was ready to replace the ink.
    Pull the down slowly the ink tank off the carriage..
    Remember the place where the color/black position.
    Remove each tank one at a time, and replace the ink with a new one.
    Close the printer cover and it now ready to printer.

    I used Word and Notepad and Wordpad to print documents and the printer shoots out blanks...or one partial page then blanks..i've uninstalled and reinstalled both Word and HP 6540 and i did so...


    It really sounds like you might have bad ink cartridges, if you use re-filled cartridges they often have problems like you are describing. The ink will get clogged and not make it to the spray nozzel so the printer thinks its printing, but the ink isnt being sprayed onto the page.

    Printing is off center on the HP 6540. The image or page being printed is cut off on the right margin and on the bottem of the page.


    ok, most likely your printer cartridges are off. In order to fix this, you can use windows to align them. Click start > Control Panel > Printers and Faxes, and right click the printer thats giving you trouble. Then go to properties. Next, go to the services tab, and click align the cartridges, and continue from there.
