It is an HP D825xi. I have since found out that it does not have the head on the cartridges and therefore I have ordered another Black head. Hopefully this will sort it out. Thank you.

Specify your printer model, as I believe that all new HP printers do not have a permanent head

Bad print head on my hp officejet j4680 all-in-one

Being six years old it's probably got a fair amount of crud built-up. I generally remove the print head, on printers that have this ability, and then clean with some qtips and 90% isopropyl alcohol. If that doesn't fix it and a replacement print head is available then replace it. But consider the cost, as cheap as printers are these days you don't want to put a lot of money into a six year old printer when you can replace it just as cheaply.

Printing will not align

Reinsert printer head

Problems with the printer head of printers might be because the printer head is not secure in its position. The problem would cause the printer head to wobble and produce bad prints. All printer users having problems with printer head are advised to check the seating or the printer head, remove it and then reinsert the printer head if it is not found properly seated.

Clean printer head:
As your printer is used, the printer head might get dust or dirt settlement from the paper being fed into the printer. Dirt settlement would cause printer to produce very poor print quality and such issues can be resolved by carefully removing the printer head and cleaning it with a printer head cleaning solution. However, care must be taken when cleaning the printer head and replacing it back as any damage to the printer head during the cleaning process would affect the functioning of the printer.

Common problem with Kodak print heads. And since you're done with the troubleshooting and is likely very familiar with the printer and its problem, definitely the print head is going bad again.

Doesn't print anymore

The reasons can be many, start by removing the printer and reinstalling the software. Now connect the printer and see that the printer is installed again.
Now make a head cleaning fromt he maintenance key and do a test print.If bad then the printing head is bad.
Estimate cost and decide.

try cleaning the contacts on the back of the head and also the contacts on the printer, it could just be a bad contact between the printer and the head.use a lightly damp cloth and be sure the printer is turned off.

you need to check the head of the printer, im sure is bad, it depends how old is the printer but the head on the printer goes bad if printer has not been used for long time or if you left the old empty cartridge seating inside for a lont time, you can do a head check on the settings of the printer and also do an alignment thank you

Bad colors in print

perfrom a deep head clean 2 times this will clean the printer printer head out. make sure u have heaps of in in your ink tanks as it uses a bit of ink to clean the heads out. then try and do a print. also you may need to do a head alignment on the printer. this head alignment should be done after u replace ink tanks.
the only other item it could be is the print head on the printer.
