Hi,

That's about right for the amount of printing you've done before this problem started to show up.

The solution is to run programs accessed from your printer control menus.

Run first, print head cleaning... perhaps twice.

Then, run print head alignment. In this routine you get several lines printed off and you choose the number correspoinding to the set of lines that line up together the closest. Then, enter that ID number for those aligned lines. Sometimes, its good to do this twice.

You will normally want to do these two routines each and every time you replace print heads.

If you need further guidance, use the comment box below to ask.

Regards,
Worldvet

Why does my HP Photosmart C6150 All-in-One only prints/scans full black page


Open the scanner cover and check on you to copy double-check scanner moves when the light comes from the scanner and see if it sees the glass as if it would be messy to be opened and cleaned

On the printers properties select colour intensity and switch to manual. then select 'set'. And move the light/dark control over to light, around 15 to 21 seems best.

MP830 PGBK does not print, tried new cartridges and usual cleaning etc, nothing. Bought new print head but still does not print. Other colours Bk,Y,M,C all ok. Have tried 'Auto Alignment' but this fails...


the printhead probably needs to be taken out of printer and cleaned.

just pop the ink cartridges out, then remove the print-head, fill a sink full of warm water, and swirl the print head around in the warm water. Blow through the color slits on the print head into the sink full of water it will get messy. empty the sink full of colored warm water.
rinse and repeat till your are satisfied its clean. dry it off with a cloth towel you don't care for, because it will get messy and covered in ink.
put your printer back together and it should work...it may take a few times...but i got my printer 'PGBK ink cartridge' working again doing this. or you can spend 100 bucks and buy a new print-head...my printer is a mp830 it came apart easily no tools or force needed... good luck and don't break your printer...its easy.

Printer has stopped printing full sheets, but when run test page it prints perfectly


Try this...Open your printer properties the same way you did when you printed a test page in Windows.

Look at the Effects tab. Look for the default print size and make sure it is set to 100%. Also check to make sure the paper size is set to 8-1/2x11 and not a smaller size paper.

Prints labels too small


when you hit print, the window comes up and lists the printers available. If your printer is highlighted, click on preferences and click on the "effects" tab and there is a box with a percentage of size. Increase the percentage, if it is too small at 100%, try to bump it up to 125% etc.

940c just prints only half the page it starts printing without the first part of page


try replacing the print cartridge. If that doesn,t work try cleaning the ink reservoir. Be careful it could get messy. use a q-tip with a little alcohol. also clean the contacts behind the print cartridge. always turn off the printer before servicing it.

My printer wont print even after changing ink and cleaning


When cleaning doesn't help, you need a new printhead. Around $89.00 now and then you add labor. They sell a new MFC 490 for around $120.00 with a year warranty.

You are using HP's cartridge with the smallest output . So if you are printing 80 pages of text, you will have a problem by the time you reach 95 or 100 pages. If you are printing in color, you only have 1ml/color. Meaning 3 colors. But in order to print a red, it will combine a magenta and yellow to product 1 color. So 3 colors doesn't mean 3 ml worth of colors. Effectively you may only be able to print 10-20 pages of color then your cartridge is empty. The black cartridge has about 4-5ml of ink. So if you print a lot I suggest you get another printer.
