SOURCE: Printing from wrong cartridge

Basically on that issue try to adjust the settings on the printing mechanism, maybe your settings when printed a photo is just for a black and white,,but usually host cartridges that comes in the box, have little amount of ink its just for testing the product if it works fine..or try to go to control panel,printer and faxes,right click on the icon->properties->print test page...after that on the same process again go to printing preferences and try to clean the cartridge.okiez...hope this can solve the issue....have a nice day!!!

SOURCE: I have a HP 7410, every time I print I get three error messages.

Perform a semi-full reset on the all-in-one by following the steps below
1
Take out the cartridges from the unit .
2
Make sure the unit is connected to the wall jack directly without any surge protector.
3
Unplug the power cord from the back of the unit ( without turning off the unit ) .
4
Now press the # and 6 key together , while holding these keys down plug in the power cord back into the unit .
5
Do not release the keys after a few seconds u will find the hp logo or bars moving across the screen .wait while the unit turns off.
6
after one minute turn on the prnter . it will go into alligment phase > let it finish .
7
after its done > try to make a copy .

8 Allow the all-in-one to re-initialize. This may take a minute or two.
9 If prompts appear in the all-in-one display to set the front panel language and country settings, perform the steps to set this information.

Let me know if this helps.
If it doesn't, I will research it further. If it does please rate it.

SOURCE: poor photo printing quality with new color cartridge

Shaking these cartridges does nothing except give you a little exercise. If this is a brand new HP cartridge you are having problems with I would return it to the store you purchased it from. HP brand cartridges should not give you these problems right out of the box. The print defects you are seeing are due to a dried up or clogged print head. If you like you can try hydrating the print head on a water soaked paper towel until the ink starts flowing, but there's a risk you will cross contaminate the colors.

SOURCE: when i try to print a photo i get white stripes

White stripes across a print-out usually indicate clogged printer heads: look at your user manual on the cleaning procedures.
You can try cleaning BOTH the Black and Color cartridges heads by gentling cleaning and wiping the heads with clean moist tissue paper/kitchen paper. Also clean and dry the contacts (eg. copper looking printed circuit).
For bad and very dirty print heads, I also use a warm shallow dish of water and wash the head only and then dry off with clean tissue paper.
After re-inserting the cartridge, I suggest that you do a cleaning cycle and alignment and do a test print to ensure that the printing is back to normal.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

Changed cartridge, received a code "P", says to install a new cartridge, but I just did install. Will not allow to do a clean print head.

hi, first turn the printer off and unplug it and let set for 30 mins. Ig that doesn't work try taking the cartridge out and reaching inside where you put the cartridges go and clean the print head with alcohol with a q-tip.

Printer: constant check cartridge

Make sure that ALL cartridges are good. Then make sure that the printer driver is properly installed. Make sure that the cable and connections are good.

If all that fails then you have a problem with your printer.

Why do my pictures have lines across them?

Try running one or two ink cartridge cleaning cycles to help clear the air out of the ink nozzles. New cartridges aren't always perfect to begin with. After doing the cleaning try running a test print from your printer setup or installation properties window. If this print is good try printing another picture on a plain piece of paper rather than photo paper. If it prints OK then use your photo paper. I say this so you don't waste your photo paper. If you get lines in the test print, return the cartridge and see if the place you bought it from will exchange it for another one. If they will not exchange it try to get them to make the cartridge print correctly. You may have to bring your printer to them. This is the best advice I can give you, I hope it helps.

Giant blobs of ink on every photo...

If you aren't currently, use the cartridge that the printer's manual says is for photos. Photo paper requires a different kind of ink.
