It's probably a problem with the black/yellow head.
lift the topup to access the heads. if the heads don't move over to the change station area (all the way left as I recall for that unit) press and hold the * until they do.
lift the big blue flap, then the blue handle on the black/yellow head and pull straight up to remove it.
Take a q-tip dampened with bottled water (dampened, not dripping) and clean the CONTACTS area (not the HEAD, just the little round/square copper pads) on the printhead, and disconnect the power from the printer, and clean the printhead contacts in the printer as well.
Without reinserting the head, close up the head access blue flap, and close the printer lid
press and hold the # and the 6 on the keypad. While holding these, reconnect the printer power
wait for a RESET message of some form to appear on the screen, or for the printer to shut back down.
If the printer demands you replace the damaged/missing head, put the printhead back in at that point, but not unless the printer is asking for it!
Once you have released the buttons, turn the printer back on if it shut itself back off.
put the printhead back in when the printer asks for it, if it hasn't already.
The printer will now go through several minutes or whirring and clicking and so forth. Let it.
In the end, it should produce a calibration page.
If the black prints ok, you're done.

If not, you'll heed to replace the black/yellow (K/Y) head.
You can usually get them where you get your ink.

You would be surprised but it's probably the problem with magenta/cyan color. It's a common problem so check out this cartridge first, then reset the printer. If everything fails try to reinstall the drivers and read the users manual

The message reads that there is a printer head problem with my black/yellow, does this mean I just need to replace it or something else on my officejet pro L7580 Thank you Becky


This means that you have a defective printhead. Kind of costly. You might try making sure your individual color cartridges are good. Sometimes, the yellow single cartridge can leak out prematurely and give you these error. Look for the black or yellow cartridge to have a leak of color on the outside. If so...replace that one. Sounds like either the black or yellow is bad though. If not...then one of your master print heads (separate from your individual ones) is defective.

When you change the print heads for a Hp L7580 what problems does it resolve?


Replacing the print heads fixes any poor print quality you are experiencing. Typically people replace print heads when a certain color (most likely black) is printing very faint or streaky. Over time the nozzles in the print head can get clogged with dried up ink. Enough clogged nozzles will inhibit ink from being deposited on the page in certain areas.

Can we print with other three Color ink cartridges when Black Ink cartridge is emptied?


hi,

as u have ran out of ink you cant print anymore... you have to replace a new ink cartridge.... this is because when u print something, the colors will get mixed to print the exact color.... even if u are printing only in black, some other colors wil get mixed to produce the black color on the paper... so u need to change the ink cartridge.... u cannot run with a blank filled ink cartridge.... and the selection of your printer is very good...

thanks and regards
agnel
