    Hi, i've just had a bit of time to research this and have found the following -

    This is caused by dust in the scanner assembly. There's a fan right by the magenta laser scanner that blows dust and particulate matter in the air directly on that laser scanner.
    Requiring its removal and careful cleaning of all lenses and mirrors. Unfortunately, this is not covered in the service manual. Getting the laser/scanner out is not too bad: Start by removing the printer covers, the rear plate, and the plate on which the DC controller and formatter mount. Remove the four laser/scanner unit corner screws and the single screw for its cover. Be careful to remove the small shutter spring on the cover before removing the cover. Use a strong flashlight to carefully examine the copper-colored mirrors for dust. Use dry cotton swabs to carefully clean all dust from the mirrors and the lenses. Blow dirt and dust from the inside of the scanner box. You will notice that the bottom mirror, facing up, is the one with the most dust.

HP A636 will not print yellow; tricolor cartridge is new


  • Align the print cartridge.
The printer automatically aligns the print cartridge after a new one is installed. You can also align the print cartridge at other times to ensure optimal print quality. Indications that you need to align the print cartridge manually include borderless prints with white space
along an edge, colors not printing satisfactorily, or poor print quality.


To align the print cartridge from the printer
  1. Load a sheet of HP Advanced Photo Paper in the input tray.
  2. Touch the Setup icon to display the Setup menu. For more information, see "Setup Menu" on page 16.
  3. Touch Cartridge.
  4. Touch Align Cartridge and follow the prompts.

Clean the print cartridge automatically.
If the printed pages are missing lines or dots or contain ink streaks, the print cartridge might be low on ink or need to be cleaned.
CAUTION: Clean the print cartridge only when necessary.
Unnecessary cleaning wastes ink and shortens the life of the cartridge.

  • Clean the cartridge.
Follow these steps to clean the cartridge automatically:
To clean the print cartridge from the printer,
  1. Touch the Setup icon to display the Setup menu. For more information, see "Setup Menu" on page 16.
  2. Touch Cartridge.
  3. Touch Clean Cartridge and follow the prompts.
If the documents are still missing lines or dots after cleaning, replace the print cartridge.

Replaced the Magenta cart. and it still doesn't print anything red. I did clean the contacts that HP suggests.


You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the printthen a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase anew printer.

Hi I am not getting any Red from my printer


It's possible magenta ink to be finished, or the print head is dirty and it has dry ink on it. You must clean it with hot water. You must use the printer from time to time to avoid to dry the ink cartridge or print head.
