I have ink buildup on the side of the printer that receives the printer cartidges when the printer finishes printing. In the case of my HP, the right hand side. How can I clean up the mess in there?

Well, I have since consulted the HP web site and they said not to worry about it and that I might do more harm than good trying to clean it up...soooo..I guess I will leave it alone.

The ink hopefully is water base; have lots of paper towels, hand wipes, Q-tips. You can use a nail file or a screwdriver to scoop up ink and wipe it on a paper towel. It wouldn't hurt to have a wet wash rag handy. Don't be rough with the machine, you don't want to break anything.

Ink streaks


Ink streaks are usually caused by a buildup of died in on the print heads. There are two print heads in that unit. Remove one at a time and look for build up - clean it if you find any. Once you finish cleaning both print heads you will need to do a print head cleaning routine in the HP software to clear out any in clogging the print nozzles.

Scanner component scans and prints normally. Trying to print off an e-mail is a different story. The little screen says 'printing' and it goes through the motions. You can hear the carriage travelling line...


check the ink cartidges (the color ones) scanners use just black ink to print with (all grayscale) if you can't buy/ afford cartidges right now (who ISN'T broke these days!?!) then set the preferances on the printer to "black/ grayscale" and see if that works ( also is a good test to see if ink is out)

My printer just prints in very light red


You are out of red ink, OR the print head is clogged (but that usually) produces streaky lines more so than light color.
You can try cleaning the print heads:
  1. Open the 3845 desktop assistant c00026601.gif icon on your desktop or start menu
  2. click on utilities or tools
  3. click maintenance
  4. click clean cartidges
  5. follow the on screen instructions
If that doesn't help, you're either out of ink in which case:
  1. Buy a new cartridge (or have yours refilled professionally)
or your print head is clogged beyond repair, in which case:
  1. Buy a new cartridge
Happy printing.

Hp printer error massage no black ink supply NEW CARTIDGE IN have tried reinstalling several time


Hi Jack,

What I understand from your message is that, when you try to print from the computer, you are receiving a message "No black ink supply"...


Solution: If you have installed the full featured AIO software on your computer, then open the HP solution Center on your computer, then click on the settings>> print settings>> Printer toolbox.

Then click on the Configuration Tab and uncheck the option "Display the ink level message". Then click on the Device tab and try to print a Diagnostic page and then click Ok to close the solution center. Then resart the computer and try printing..


I am pretty sure this will resolve the issue..

With Regards

Mike.....

HP PSC 2410xi color printing issues


Try using warn distilled water and Q-tips to gently clean the area where the ink cartridge and the carriage mate up. You may have dried old ink in there which is clogging the print nozzles. Allow to air dry, reinstall cartidges, start machine and let it go through its cleaning cycle. Also check www.hp.com. Hope this helps.

Printer Designjet 110 Plus not working


Ink supplies Description HP part number 11 Black Printhead C4810A 11 Cyan Printhead C4811A 11 Magenta Printhead C4812A 11 Yellow Printhead C4813A 10 Black Ink Cartridge C4844A 82 Cyan Ink Cartridge C4911A 82 Magenta Ink Cartridge C4912A 82 Yellow Ink Cartridge C4913A
alot of printers now if the ink in the cartidge is the first ones placed in the system from the box are those that are only half full if not less depending on the maker but I know HP only fills their cartidges only just under the half way make but the printer sees it as a new cartrige because of the chips programming.

Have you tryed to turn the power of and let is sit for about 5 mins and turn it back on with the same result? (ushally a yellow error light is on)

Also if you can find the settings to only print in black and white on the printers properties that might also work as well for a temp fix.

But ushally once one ink runs out it likes to do that you where correct with the "is it because of the finished color cartidges.." either that or the carts all have finally expired.

Nice printer by the way.

But your best way to do it would be to replace the color carts and if not reasonable to do now there is also a way to reset the color carts so that the printer thinks that there is ink in them as well.

hope this helps you a bit if you need more info please let us know.
