HP A636 will not print yellow; tricolor cartridge is new


  • Align the print cartridge.
The printer automatically aligns the print cartridge after a new one is installed. You can also align the print cartridge at other times to ensure optimal print quality. Indications that you need to align the print cartridge manually include borderless prints with white space
along an edge, colors not printing satisfactorily, or poor print quality.


To align the print cartridge from the printer
  1. Load a sheet of HP Advanced Photo Paper in the input tray.
  2. Touch the Setup icon to display the Setup menu. For more information, see "Setup Menu" on page 16.
  3. Touch Cartridge.
  4. Touch Align Cartridge and follow the prompts.

Clean the print cartridge automatically.
If the printed pages are missing lines or dots or contain ink streaks, the print cartridge might be low on ink or need to be cleaned.
CAUTION: Clean the print cartridge only when necessary.
Unnecessary cleaning wastes ink and shortens the life of the cartridge.

  • Clean the cartridge.
Follow these steps to clean the cartridge automatically:
To clean the print cartridge from the printer,
  1. Touch the Setup icon to display the Setup menu. For more information, see "Setup Menu" on page 16.
  2. Touch Cartridge.
  3. Touch Clean Cartridge and follow the prompts.
If the documents are still missing lines or dots after cleaning, replace the print cartridge.

Wont accept #90 ink cartridge


It could be that your cartridge needs cleaning. Refer to these articles on:
- How to Clean the Cartridges of the Lexmark Z715 in Windows - How to Clean the Print Cartridge Nozzles and Contacts Manually
Also, make sure your cartridge is properly seated in the cartridge carrier. Turning off/on your printer might also help.

It could be that the cartridges are not inserted properly in the carrier or just needs cleaning. Try to remove both cartridges from the printer and manually clean the nozzles. You may refer to this article on How to Clean the Print Cartridge Nozzles and Contacts Manually. Then reinsert one cartridge first and close the cover. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error. You can also try the Clean Cartridge function on the printer by pressing the Setup button -> Maintenance -> Clean Cartridges. It will then print the clean nozzles test page. If error continues, replace the faulty cartridge.

How do I clean the print heads on my Photosmart


You can get a download of the manual from HP:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=emea_africa&lang=en&product=57595&

The self-clean cycle of the cartridges can be accessed from the LCD or the software on your computer.

To manually cleaning the cartridges:
Remove the cartridge from the printer. Dip a cotton swab in distilled water and squeeze out any excess water. While holding the cartridge by its top, wipe off the face and edges of the cartridge. Do not wipe the nozzle plate (that could damage the cartridge). Replace the cartridge in the printer. Please note: if the cartridge is out of the printer for more than 30 minutes, the ink could start to dry out and not be usable.

The print heads are part of the cartridge.

I hope this helps.

I cannot print right now the printer tells me that there is an error on the cartridge and refer to device documentattion troubleshoot


Read carefully this document from HP it will help you.
Solution
When the directions below ask you to remove the cartridges for a procedure, make sure to complete the procedure and reinstall the cartridges within 30 minutes. The ink in the cartridges can dry in the nozzles if the cartridge is outside of the printer for too long.
  1. Remove both cartridges (even if the message indicates only one cartridge). See your printer's manual or help files for specific information on removing and inserting cartridges. Most HP printers must be turned on to remove the cartridges.
  2. Unplug the printer.
  3. Inspect the cartridges:
    • If the cartridges are new, make sure the protective tape has been removed completely.
    • Make sure the cartridges are not damaged. If the copper-colored electrical strip is torn or punctured, the cartridge must be replaced.
    • Make sure the cartridges are compatible with the printer. See the manual for a list of compatible cartridges.
  4. Reinstall the cartridges.
    • Make sure each cartridge is in the correct slot.
    • Make sure the cartridge is snapped into place and the latch is closed.
    • Close the front cover and plug the printer back in.
  5. If the steps above have not solved the problem, follow the procedure below to wipe the cartridge contacts.
    1. Remove both cartridges. See your printer's manual or help files for specific information on removing and inserting cartridges. Most HP printers must be turned on to remove the cartridges..
    2. Unplug the printer.
    3. Wipe the copper-colored electrical contacts with a clean, dry, lint-free cotton cloth. WARNING: Be careful not to touch the nozzle area. The illustrations below show nozzle and contact locations for some representative cartridges. Figure 1: Cartridge nozzles and contacts c00059236.gif 1 - Nozzles 2 - Contacts Figure 2: Cartridge nozzles and contacts c00059237.gif 1 - Nozzles 2 - Contacts If your cartridge doesn't look exactly like one of the illustrations above, locate the contacts by looking for an area with a number of small copper squares. The illustration below shows some representative cartridge contacts. Figure 3: Cartridge contacts c00059238.jpg
    4. Reinstall the cartridges, close the front cover, and plug the printer back in.
  6. If the steps above do not fix the problem, follow the procedure below to clean the electrical contacts more thoroughly:
    1. Gather cleaning supplies:
      • Clean distilled water. Use bottled or filtered water if distilled water is not available.
      • Clean cotton swabs or any soft, lint-free material that will not stick to the cartridges (coffee filters work well).
    2. Remove both cartridges.
    3. Unplug the printer.
    4. Lightly moisten the lint-free cleaning material with clean water.
    5. Clean the cartridge contacts. Avoid touching the nozzles. Replace the cleaning material if it gets dirty.
    6. Using a new swab, clean the electrical contacts inside the printer, in the carriage. The illustrations below show contact locations for some representative carriages. If your carriage does not look like either of the pictures below, try to locate copper contacts inside of the printer that would touch the contacts on the cartridge when the cartridge is installed. Figure 4: Carriage contacts c00059239.gif Figure 5: Carriage contacts c00059240.gif
    7. Allow all the contacts to dry for at least five minutes, or dry them with a clean swab, then reinstall the cartridges.
    8. Close the front cover and plug the printer back in.
  7. If the steps above have not solved the problem, repeat them.
  8. If the error still occurs after repeating all the steps, replace the cartridges. If you have already replaced the cartridges once without solving the problem, click the link below to contact HP. The printer may need to be serviced.
