HP officejet 6500 does not dispense ink


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Blocked print head nozzles
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.

HP DESJET 694C - NO LONGER PRINTS IN COLOR - TRIED SEVERAL CARTRIDGES, CLEANED PINS, ALIGNED AND REALIGNED - NO CHANGE.


Did you checked Printer Settings? May be option is check Marked that "Always print in Gray Scale" if yes then remove check mark.

Disconnect printer from computer and Try to press resume copy or start print button for 5 seconds to start Test Print directly from printer. it prints in color then there definaly a setting problen in your computer printer settings.

Last Option is to check or replace print head.

Black smudges on printed page


Are you sure this is a Designjet 450 (large format printer) and not a Deskjet 450 (portable printer)? The following assumes you have wispy black streaking on the printed side of the paper. If the streaking is on the back side then post more details of the printer model and the issue.

In either case the most likely cause is a buildup of fibers on the underside of the printheads or carriage, causing wisps of black ink to be dragged on the paper when the carriage reverses direction. You can clean the printer as shown at the following (though the details will be somewhat different for the Designjet or Deskjet....).
