Question about HP DeskJet 648c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP Deskjet 648C printer

My printer won't print after I change the ink cartridge. The reason shown is "the device is not connected." All cables are connected. The top one of the two lights is flashing in yellow.

Ink Cartridges used:
HP Tricolor Print Cartridge and
Home Depot (black)

    Hooray! I changed to a new ink cartridge and it worked. Thank you very much!

    I have another question, though. When I tried to print a picture, the quality turned out to be very poor. --- It's as if the ink is about to run out. Would shaking the ink cartridge help?

    Thanks

Just a suggestion: Have you tried using a different ink cartridge? I have found brand new cartridges to be bad right out of the wrapper.

    My best guess from having the same problem is the print set up. I found if I tell the printer it is a photo on plain paper it works better than if I tell it the photo is on photo paper. Again, this is a guess as I was using a Canon iP5000. I now have a Canon MP500 but haven't tried printing photos yet.

HP Deskjet 5150 poor print quality


For poor printing problems I suggest you run the Tap 10 diagnostic print test (see link to video below).
If the new (or refilled/reman/compatible) HP 56, 57 or 58 ink cartridge refuses to print black/color and/or function at all (i.e. blinking ink light on Deskjet 5000 series printer) or fails to complete the printer alignment following cartridge installation, then the ink cartridge either has a connectivity issue with the flexible printed circuit cable (inside unit where cartridge mates with cable), the rear cartridge contacts or cable contacts are dirty with ink residue, or the cartridge is suffering from marginal internal electrical performance. It is suggested you perform the TAP 43 (and TAP 10) DIAGNOSTIC PRINTER TEST to evaluate the ink cartridges electrical performance. Visit Inkjet411 support site to see instructional video: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2358
NOTE: For the HP Deskjet 5000 series printer models, when you get an HP 56, 57 or 58 integrated ink cartridge refilled (i.e. currently offered at Costco or Frys today) or if you buy a remanufactured/compatible HP ink cartridge, the ink levels are not initially reset. However, continuing to use an ink cartridge which displays LOW INK alerts is permitted by the printer, simply select OK, CONTINUE or DISMISS when these alerts are observed. Now, it is possible to reset the ink levels by performing the procedure outlined on Inkjet411's site: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1915
To clean the HP 56, 57 or 58 ink cartridges please visit the Inkjet411 site which provides recommendations on how to clean the electrical contacts, flex driver cables and how to perform a hot water flush of the nozzle plate (refer to video): http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

I can't get my hpdeskjet 648c to print the green light flashes like it want to but it don't print


Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts. If this wont get the printer working it can be fault in the printer's motherboard.
