Make sure you pull the tab off the ink cartreges before you put them in. Also make sure there are no packing tape/ tabs where you put the cartreges in.

Installed new ink and now won't print anything, not even a test page. says error. deskjet 4400 series


Each ink cartridge has a metal, thin Copper 'plate'.
In this 'plate' there is a series of VERY small holes. The holes are so small it's hard to discern their existence, with just the ***** eye.

The area on the printer's body, that the copper plate matches up to, also has matching holes.

After a given time the ink dries up in these tiny holes.
The dried ink needs to be removed.

Printer UNPLUGGED from power, printer case open.
I would suggest wearing dish washing gloves, and remove all ink cartridges.

Small bowl half full of distilled water as hot as you can stand it, dip a clean, lint-free cloth in it. (Distilled, because non-distilled water can leave hard water spots)


Squeeze all excess water out until the cloth is damp. (D-A-M-P) Wipe the area on the body of the printer.

I would suggest wiping in one direction only. Wipe, then go to a fresh, clean part of the cloth, wipe again.
Keep wiping until the cloth picks up No ink.

You may want to follow suit on the ink cartridge/s now, as they may have picked up dried ink.

Suggest use a can of compressed air for computers, and make SURE all areas are D-R-Y.

Allow the printer to set open to dry afterwards. May only take 30 minutes, or less.

Ensuring all surfaces are dry from the water, reinstall the ink cartridges.
Close the printer's case. Plug back into power, WAIT 1 minute, then turn on.

You printer maybe lock in alignment status.
You could try a hardware reset
Removed both of your cartridges
Unplug the printer
Wait at least 30 minutes
Replug back the printer
Install back the ink cartridges and align

I refill my own cartridges. Printer says "Black Ink Low". I tried the "tape over the contacts" trick but it didn't work. How do I clear this error without having to cycle 2 other cartridges through it?


Use the fairy new cartridges offered by HP.
I realize they cost more but if there is a problem there is a warranty available from HP on their product.

The first thing refilled cartridges do for you is to cause any remaining warranty on the printer to be canceled.

Another benefit of refilled cartridges is most often poor print quality. Then of course, you can get stuck in the "Check ink level" or "Incorrect ink cartridge"

Refilled cartridges are not worth the time and effort you put into them, but hey that's just my humble opinion. I have seen firsthand what the damages can be with junk ink.

How do I install ink HP photosmart c3180


Hey DDD,

It looks like HP put together an animation to help with replacing the ink cartridges. I know you are just trying to install them for the first time, but it might be helpful:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00652671&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1146331

Also, since you are just setting up the new product, double check that you've removed all the packing material and tape from the cartridges. I've made that mistake before ;-)

Cheers,

_K

Try to get your printer to recognize the new cartridge; go to start - printer and faxes -right click on printer - preferences (printing preferences) -settings -load factory settings. Print test page Ctrl+P

Please post if that worked.

Refilling cartridge


cucujo, you were not as lucky as lovetofish! Sooner or later the printer will win.
The money for printer manufactures is not in the printer, it's in the ink refills. With this in mind many printer Mfg's have added small chips to their ink cartridges. These chips track the amount of times the printer prints. The software knows you are adding ink to the cartridges. Many people find they can get around this by keeping their old cartridges & refilling. Some HP users keep as many old cartridges as three. Rotating ink cartridges. This seems to work for most printers. Suggest you try the same. Continue to fill you're ink cartridge but replace with a new cartridge. When it empties replace with another new. The next three will be re-filled ink cartridges. Always refill as soon as possible, never turn ink cartridges on their sides. Keep refilled cartridges in an airless zip-lock bag, in a cool & dark place when storing.

No Yellow Or Cyan Ink


Hi do the following and hopefully it will help you. If it doesn't then you have a fault carriage or main PCB.

  • Remove ink Cartridge
  • With a soft cloth wipe clean the gold contacts on the carriage unit and the same on the ink cartridge
  • reinstall the ink cartridge
  • Click start
  • Select printers and faxes
  • Right hand click on the printer icon
  • Select Properties
  • Click on Services Tab
  • Click on clean print heads
  • Then click on Prime.
Hopefully this will work

Thanks J

HP Photosmart all in one C3180


My suggestion: Don't buy HP. I have the same region coding problem. All I want to do is buy HP ink, put it in my HP printer and print stuff. Too hard. I've wasted 30 pounds on ink and another 30 pounds on "support" phone calls to HP. Hopeless. I will never buy HP again. Waste of time and money.
