Hi,

I guess that your print head is clogged. There are someuseful ways to get the printer's head clean without having to buy anothercartridge. Using a syringe and some alcohol to unclog the holes can be a very helpfulsolution. First remove thecartridge from the printer, with the syringe, take in some alcohol and put insome drops in the tiny hole where the ink runs from the ink cartridge to thehead of the printer. When done, put the cartridge in some warm water, make sureonly where the tiny holes are found. Ifsome ink runs in the water, it means that the holes have been unblocked. Letthe alcohol act for 20 minutes on the ink before putting the cartridge back inthe printer. Run some test prints before using the printer normally.
I would suggest you to doan automatic head cleaning each time before any printing task. It will reducethe risk of having the print heads blocked by dried ink. Hope this helps.

Problem installing an ink catridge


Most HP printers will move the print heads to the center of the printer when you open the front.

Each cartridge has a flip that you can flip up. The cartridge can then be removed by tilting it toward you. You can install a new cartridge by removing it from the box and foil liner. You then remove a strip that protects the head. Like you took out the old cartridge, tilt the cartridge and straighten it up. Flip the flip down. Close the top. You should be ready to go after the heads clean themselves and do an alignment.

If the printing is not satisfactory, you can go to your programs and hp will have a tool to perform alignment.

You can use HP cartridges, refilled cartridges or fill cartridges yourself (depends).

I've filled cartridges with success. However, it can be a bit messy.

My black ink ran out so I replaced the ink


Hi:
I have used the printer series that you have for years, and once in awhile, I get a new cartridge that won't immediately print. Often, there is just a bit of dried ink residue on the print head, and that won't allow the cartridge to work correctly.

Some simple things to try are :

1) Remove the black cartridge. and take a damp paper towel and gently swab the print head area. Next, apply some pressure to the sides of the black cartridge, until you see black ink oozing out of the print head. Repeat if needed. Once the ink starts flowing, blot off the excess, and install the cartridge.

If you can't get ink to flow, then the cartridge might be bad. Most of them have an expiration date on the packaging.

Printer only won't print in black


My printer did that a few months ago. I tried everything to get it printing black but in the end I had to take the ink cartridge back and return a new one. Some ink cartridges dry out when they are being shipped if not stored in proper conditions.

Reset ink level on hp 6310 #98 cartridge I have been using refilled cartridges and the in level is ''empty'' even when the cartridge is new and just filled. how can I reset the ink level?


if you are using a refilled catridge you would not get ink levels right.
if you want right ink level use genuine ink catridges.
you can try taking out the catridges turning off the printer and turning it back on and then reinstalling the catridges.it might not help so if possible buy hp ink catridges.

Use of 852 and 855 cartridge in hp 6210 officejet printer


This quite often happens with CLONE cartridges and happens very infrequent with original cartridges.

The cause is the ink level chip used in clones is quite often a very cheap chinese copy and very prone to failure or misalignment

Either way take them back and get them changed is my advice
