I just changed all of the ink cartriges. Now the magenta and Cyan are not functioning....nothing. Everything is yellow and black, I cleaned the print heads twice, just wasting ink. I tried to align the...


If it worked before changing the ink-cartridges, then it probably is _NOT_ a case of "clogged" ink-jets in the print-head.

Did you remove the plastic "sealing" tape from the new cartridges, before you installed them?
If not, then no ink can leave the cartridge.

Which model of HP printer? Maybe, you got a "dud" of a new ink-cartridge.
Take it out.
Take an old, thick, section of newspaper, and lie it flat on your table.
Dampen a paper-towel, and put it onto the newspaper.
Touch the ink-cartridge to the paper-towel -- it should "bleed" some ink onto the towel.
Not much ink, but the newspaper is there to protect the surface of the table.
If no "bleeding", then the ink-cartridge is the problem.

Have put new cartridges in and only prints yellow lines


Remove all cartridges, make sure any tape has been removed from over the nozzle. Ensure that everything has been installed properly, then use your printer (prompts on device, or in printer>control panel) to print some test pages, realign heads, etc.

hello, machine will need to finish calibration so it will not come back, so if machine failes it could be that the color cartridge is not printing, because this machine uses yellow to calibrate with.

The orange light keeps flashing


FLASHING ORANGE LIGHT ERROR MESSAGES


Try counting the number of orange flashes.
* two flashes means you’re out of paper or the paper is not feeding correctly.
* three flashes means there is a paper Jam or the output tray is closed.
* four flashes means the ink tank is empty
* five flashes means the print head is not installed correctly or not installed or is defective (before buying a new print head always try the cleaning instructions at the end of this post first.)
* six flashes means the inner cover is open or not closed properly.
* seven flashes means you counted wrong.....
* eight flashes means the waste ink absorber is almost full or full.
* nine flashes mean that a digital camera or video that is connected is not compatible with the printer. If a specific amount of time lapses without getting a response from the digital camera or video camcorder this will happen.
* ten flashes means it can not print to both sides of the page
* eleven flashes means the automatic print head alignment failed. (this can be caused by low ink levels, ink tanks not being installed correctly, the print heads being clogged. It can also be caused by the paper output slot being exposed to a strong light source (Press the resume /cancel button and move the printer to a darker location and try to align the print head again.
* check to make sure the lock lever is correctly positioned (down)
If the above does not work, align the print head manually by opening the printer properties dialog box and clicking the maintenance tab and then select the print heal alignment button on the left side, second row down.

C6180 failed alignment test, will not print color properly


All colors need to be present to pass alignment. Usually what I see is the yellow is empty. You can blot the print cartridge on a damp paper towel to verify the inks are working and this also cleans the head.

Black ink not coming through


I had the same problem. Ended up replacing the black/yellow "printhead" and that corrected the problem.

Ink Cartridge Alignment


On alignment sheet, do you see a line of yellow blocks?
And on next line do you see alternate block and yellow blocks?

(Without these, alignment fails)

If not, change the colour cartridge, re-print the page and repeat alignment.

Good luck...

Printer will not copy


It Does keep asking if it fails to get it right, usually it fails to get scan of alignment page completed correctly because it fails to see one of the colours printed on its alignment page correctly,
I would guess that you should change colour cartridge as well (these I have seen deplete themselves trying print black when black ink is not present.

There is also a way of telling your printer to forget about alignment would you like to know how......Press and hold the Setup button, and then press Options (or Copy Options ).

Here is a link to how an alignment page should look and HP answers to your problem, please rate my solution for me.

Magenta printing as yellow


Well, first off, are the alignment, and nozzle check sheets looking good? If not, then work on that. If so, then we have a problem. Try creating a test sheet in Word. Make red, yellow blue & black text and see if anything else prints wrong. Get back to me!
