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.

How do i change the ink cartridges for the photosmart 7960


Make sure the printer is ON.

2. Open the print-carriage access door by lifting from the front center of the device, until the door locks into place.
The print carriage moves to the far right side of the printer.

3. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. If you are replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. If you are replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right.

4. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot.

5. If you are removing the black print cartridge in order to install the photo print cartridge, store the black print cartridge in the print cartridge protector. For more information, see Use the print cartridge protector. If you are removing the print cartridge because it is low or out of ink, recycle the print cartridge. The HP Inkjet Supplies Recycling Program is available in many countries/regions, and lets you recycle used print cartridges free of charge.

6. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.

7. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Push the print cartridge forward until it clicks into place.
If the print cartridge you are installing has a white triangle on its label, slide the print cartridge into the slot on the left. The label for the slot is green with a solid white triangle. If the print cartridge you are installing has a white square or a white pentagon on its label, slide the print cartridge into the slot on the right. The label for the slot is black with a solid white square and a solid white pentagon.

8. Close the print-carriage access door.

Hi Good day!!!
Maybe your print head is clooged (red)
Then most about 98% are more likely to be an ink clog which just needs to be unclogged using something like print head cleaning solution
Basically, if a print head has been left unused for some time... moisture inside the ink begins to evaporate and instead of liquid ink, a thick inky jelly begins to form inside the print head.

When this occurs white lines appear in prints and most people not realizing the problem, will replace their inks... But when that does not work. Some assume they have an electrical fault, and replace their print head, others will replace their printer !

But provided there is no obvious print head damage? In 98% of cases it simply needs a little patience and print head cleaning solution injecting directly into the print head to dissolve the dried ink trapped inside. This will dissolve the clog and allow your expensive ink to flow once again. Most will then print as new.

Thank you for using fixya

My prints are red with lines Why


Cleaning an ink-jet printer can solve minor problems, maintain print quality, and prolong periods between professional cleanings. Thin white lines across printouts indicate that the ink nozzles need to be cleaned.
  1. p 1 Collect the supplies you need: a soft cloth and cleaning fluid made for plastic. (Water is fine in most cases.)
  2. Step 2 Check the printer manual. If the manufacturer has provided specific instructions, follow them.
  3. Step 3 Turn off the printer.
  4. Step 4 Dampen the cloth with water or cleaning fluid.
  5. Step 5 Wipe the outside of the printer, making sure that no fluid gets inside.
  6. Cleaning Cartridges or Ink Nozzles
  7. Step 1 Use the cleaning buttons on your printer if it has them.
  8. Step 2 Initiate cleaning through the printer software.
  9. Step 3 Open the printer software by double-clicking on a printer icon or opening a document and then selecting Print from the File menu.
  10. Step 4 Click a button labeled Options, Troubleshooting, Clean Print Cartridges, Toolbox, Printer Utilities or something similar. (This varies by manufacturer.)
  11. Step 5 Click a button labeled Head Cleaning, Run Nozzle Check, Clean Print Cartridges or something similar to begin the process.
  12. Step 6 Follow the instructions on your screen.
  13. Step 7 Repeat the cleaning process if the results aren't satisfactory.
  14. Step 8 Go to your printer manufacturer's Web site for detailed instructions on manual cartridge cleaning and interior cleaning.
