Your printhead is probably clogged. It's a replaceable (expensive) part. Try cleaning it first. Do a google search on how to clean a clogged printhead for your printer model. In most cases there are excellent YouTube videos that will guide you better than any written description.

not possible legally.
new info chip required for cartridge.
3rd party inks WILL cost more ( if you include the damage they cause) in the long run - known FACT.
strongly recommend you revert back to HP inks as soon as possible.

You can try using it and hope that it will work. If it doesn't then you will have to buy a new one. Don't worry nothing bad will happen to your printer.

I have the identical problem with an HP Business Inkjet 1100.

Once cartridges were past date, the printer would no longer print from Windows XP. It would however work perfectly from Linux.

I did not find an ini file as mentioned in other posts, and I really did not want to open the printer as it worked fine in Linux.

The following fixed the problem:

1) Click on Start button, run
2) Type in regedit, enter
3) Navigate to HKLM/software/Hewlett-Packard/HP Printers/HPWH Toolbox/Common
4) In the right panel, right click on Ink, pick modify
5) Change 0100 to 0000
6) Save and reboot

Please check the cartridge page yield before procuring it. Check the cartridge part number last digit, if it is suffix with "A" it will only last 1400 page yield, if it is lasting with "AD" it will last up-to 2000 page yield. Also double check the toner cartridge is originally made by HP. No chance for logic fault.

Why don't you just print the data on the one side of the page and then simply turn the page over and reinsert it into the paper feeder and then print the next bit of data, therfore you end up with both sides of the page printed without worrying about printer commands that seem to fail.

aunque pueda ser que los cartuchos estan malos y necesitarias comprarlos nuevos. busque solucion a tu problema pero no pude encontrar nada interensante.

en el pasado personalmente he tenido ese problema y me toco que cambiarle cartuchos a mi printer.

Its the cable which attaches to the lcd display, you have to press on the contact areas where the cable attaches to the lcd glass and circuit board.

I read the question.However, as you cannot see the error message, it is practically impossible to diagnose the problem. Regarding the spare parts, there are many options and ways to get that. However, first of all we need to know the exact error message. There are many different errors and it is not a wise option to keep swapping or replacing parts.

There are many problems that needs repair and is advisable that you should replace printer than repair it. Even if you spend many bucks on repairing the printer so that you could read the message ( obviously as few lines are missing, this is indicative of hardware fault ).

If you want parts, you could buy a non working printer ( same model - used ) from :-


As i mentioned you could try swapping, however it would be a gamble.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hi. Try to reseat the cartridge and reinstall the driver of your printer.

Hi! Please try this... Remove the cartridges and shake them a bit. They may need to be shaked before installation. After installing the cartridges please run CLEANING. Cleaning process sips the ink from the cartridge. Try it and see how it goes. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!
