Most likely your encoder has become fogged due to aerosol in the printer. You can carefully clean this following the instructions here. Be sure to heed the warnings, the encoder is fragile and can be easily damaged.

Once you have cleaned the encoder force an alignment calibration, either from the toolbox of alternately turn on the printer, then press and hold the power button, then quickly press the formfeed buttion three times, then release the power button. If the alignment fails you may need to lean the bottom of the alignment sensor, it is located in a small black package just on the lower right side of the carriage. Open the lid, allow the carriage to move to the center then clean the sensor from below with a damp q-tip.

My deskjet 950C printer will not print out anything exept the test sheet. everything just goes in a queue. what should i do? Please get back to me as soon as possible, Thank you.


If it will only print the test sheet the printer is not seeing the computer. Check your cable connections and your drivers. Try another USB port on the computer. Go to 'Printers and Faxes' and see if your printer is listed there, if not, install it using the software supplied or look for it in the Windows list. You can also try access the Printer Assistant which comes with HP products and should be there it the software is correctly installed. There is help and support in that as well.

HP Deskjet 950c won't print black


You might be able to use a q-tip with alcohol or acetone to loosen and clean residual ink from the inside and bottom of the black printer cartridge tray--I've even had to use compressed air after loosening the junk after my HP sat for a year. Btw, I'm sure you know this, but the contact pads need to be clean and free of factory tape. I hope this helps.

DeskJet 950C Pink Printing problem


Assuming that you have the correct print drivers and the color is set correctly on your software. Then the issue is often caused by the ink drying and clogging the injectors. Open the lid and remove the ink cartridges, then unplug the printer. Then get a swab or Q tip and using bottled water (do not use tap water). Moisten the swab and wipe the areas on the printer where the ink cartridge contacts the printer. You should see ink on the swab. After you let it completely dry then place the cartridge back in and turn the printer back on. Try to print again. If it is still not printing with the correct colors then you could have a problem with the injector circuitry. At that point it is cheaper to buy a new printer. You can get refurbished ink jet Dell printers at Dell.com under outlet for usually $30-$40 and a one year warranty.
