Reset printer cartridges hp l7580


HP88 CARTRIDGE RECOGNITION FAILURES/CAUSES:

The failure to recognize an ink cartridge(s) could either be a possible Cartridge connectivity, PRINTHEAD* connectivity or an end-of-life PRINTHEAD issue.

We suggest you remove all the ink cartridges and thoroughly clean BOTH PRINTHEADS manually along with cartridge chip contact surfaces (located on bottom-rear side of each ink cartridge). Clean all electrical contacts, including those inside the printer which mate to the PRINTHEADS. Reinstall both PRINTHEADS and cartridges and retest. You may refer to HP's 'manual' cleaning procedures here:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=125&prodSeriesId=2511747&prodTypeId=18972&objectID=c00844045

Ensure an "expired ink cartridge" alert state is not causing the issue, refer to this page on how to check & bypass: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1384

---- If you observe an "Expired xxxx ink cartridge" alert or message, this error may be bypassed by performing the following:
a. Press and HOLD the Power button.
b. Press Resume button 3 times.
c. Release the Power button

If the cartridge was refilled (i.e. at Costco or Fry's Electronics), following HP 88 cartridge chip replacement and complete cartridge/printhead/printer manual electrical contact cleaning, the cartridge alert message(s) continue, then you may have a damaged PRINTHEAD* (there are two printheads inside the printer) which may require re-priming or replacement depending on problem symptoms.

* The HP 88 ink-series printer models have two electronic PRINTHEADS (each of these electronic devices are responsible for pulling ink from the ink cartridges and then firing the ink droplets onto the paper) - both PRINTHEADS will eventually fail depending on printed content, printer duty cycle (i.e. typically rated for ~41, 500 printed pages depending on image content & frequency of printing). The average inkjet printer can typically be refilled with ~15 to 20 complete sets of ink cartridges over the life of the printhead, after which, either the Yellow/Black and/or Cyan/Magenta printhead will need to be replaced due to internal electrical failure (available at HP.com).

Refer to video on how the HP PRINTHEAD functions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2054
When the PRINTHEAD electronically fails typically the printer will provide an alert message when this happens, but if a printhead has suffered a deprime (i.e. loss of ink/pressure which results in no printing of color), it is possible to recover the system using a 3rd party PRINTHEAD priming tool, such as this one: http://www.inkowl.com/?p=product&product=5035

My printer is printing but the black ink is very faint. I get a message ink system failure


You could clean the black ink cartridge. For this you need to remove the black ink cartridge which is present in the printer. In order to clean the laser or scanner block you could use a cotton swab as it would fully clean the dirt. You need to clean the grime and the dried ink present in the printer. This would remove all the hindrances which prevent the ink from flowing. Cleaning the printer heads would also help to solve the problem.

0xc18a0106 error from hp 3310 printer.... ink system has failed


That error code indicates a Ink system failure error message. Ink system failed mainly caused by your cartridge spitting extra inks into the copper contacts inside the printer. All you need is to remove all cartridge, clean the copper contacts at the back of it, clean also the contacts inside the printer (cartridge slots). Insert it back in after cleaning, unplug the power cord without turning off the printer, wait for 1 min before plugging it back in. Let me know the result.
