20 Most Recent HP C6250 InkJet Printer Questions & Answers

The HP cartridges have a date-encoded chip. It cannot be reset. However, I have been using a tank-type inksupply from ink2000 (see ink2000.com) for my HP Officejet L7500 for years, and I've recommended the corresponding system to friends with other HP printers. Ink2000 makes a quality system that comes with an external transparent Lucite ink tank that connects to most printers. No-mess refill of the ink tank is trivial and you can visually see when it's time to fill the cells. A capillary tube runs to specially modified replacement cartridges that are supplied by ink2000 when you purchase the system. These cartridges install in your printer just like the HP cartridges. I have but one precaution for you, and this holds whether you use the ink tank system or not.

The design of the HP printers that have the cartridges installed in the printhead (unlike my model which has them installed in a fixed location) is deficient. Without regular use the ink dries at the printhead. Worse yet, air enters the cartridge causing its special foam insert to dry out. You MUST USE YOUR PRINTER regularly for at least brief time to avoid this. When you use the ink2000 inktank system you can use a syringe placed over the top of the affected tank to force air pressure gently into the capillary to make sure ink (and not air) is fully flowing into the cartridge.
If you lift out the cartridge from the printhead and place it over a paper towel, you will see ink begin to flow immediately from the cartridge if it's not clogged or dried out. Apply air pressure slowly until you see ink just begin to emerge. Don't try to flood the printhead by getting too much ink out of the cartridge. Then reinsert the cartridge into the printhead (which previously has been cleaned) and try a few print cycles. If you have not destroyed the printhead this will work.

Cleaning the printheads and contacts, then resetting the inks should fix this.

  • Turn the machine on.

HP printers will not accept refilled cartridges. Are you trying to replace your empty cartridges with refilled cartridges? There is a computer chip in the ink cartridge that tells the printer when it is out of ink. If you try and refill it yourself, the printer will not recognize that it has been refilled without replacing the computer chip in it.

I think your printer is telling you that it needs HP brand cartridges that are original and not refilled cartridges. There is no way to "reset" an hp printer to get it to use an off brand or refilled cartridge that has not had the chip changed.

You can pick up a good refilled cartridge at a professional company who knows about changing the chip for less then a third of the regular price of an HP cartridge in a department store. However, HP does not want you to use refilled cartridges and should something go wrong with your computer and they find out that you were using them they will void your warranty on your printer.

If you are not trying to replace HP brand cartridges with refilled or off brand versions, I suggest your return them to where you bought them and exchange them. They may be defective cartridges.

Hope this helps?

you wasted your time using cleaning program and heaps of ink...

follow this procedure:

1. remove all ink cartridges from the printer
2. check if ink is soluble in water, isopropyl alcohol or methylated spirit (this which do not create lumps or precipitations is correct solvent)
3. put one drop of solvent in th centre of aspiration hole on receptable
4. if solvent is absorbed through input, that meant problem is not with printer but with cartridges.
5. check printer cartridge by stamping them with tissue if they "produce" any ink on the outlet,
6. put one drop of solvent on cartridge outlet and insert them in correct bases
7. print test page, print should be rather weak as solvent will go through the nozzles
8. print test page from computer
9.create "strip page" of each colour used, separate by no colour (white) start with yellow strip, then white, light cyan, white, cyan, white, light magenta, white, magenta, white, black - this strip pattern will force all cartridge to operate on they max delivery.

if there is no result, service by technician will be in place...

all ink based printers need to print at least one page per week... ink will dry pretty fast, especially in dry or hot condition.

Try performing a scan. Probably the scanner or the scanner flat cable is damaged.

The problem is with the printer jobs in the printer queue. Deleting those jobs may resolve the problem. You can try to do this through the menu, tapping the printer icon, opening the device, opening the queue list and deleting the jobs. However, you may have to turn off the printer, disconnect it from the computer, power the printer back on, then try the print a test page option. If it prints, connect it again to the computer and try it out.

Here are additional steps you casn take if the above does not work:
