On HP 6500 printers, remove screen and try heating the connection elemants with hair dryer or something similar. Nothing to hot. The led bars should restore. Here's a link on how to remove HP 6500. Do same for 6500A model, but screen is a bit different, so check out the other video for HP 6500A and 6500A plus printers:

For severe HP OJ 6500/6500A print quality/missing color issues there could be an air bubble in the ink cartridges, air gap between cartridge and PRINTER, or a portion of the PRINTHEAD is dry, so you should first perform a Clean PrintHead procedure from your printer control panel.
NOTE: If one or more the colors were previously dry fired during printing (i.e. if you continued printing using only a few colors to one, air may have been accidently ingested into the ink lines between the cartridge(s) and PRINTHEAD. To recover from this problem, you may have to run the Clean Printhead procedure 2-3 times.
If a problem persists then it is suggested to review the steps outlined on the following HP 920 support pages, including printhead removal/printer cleaning and service station cleaning. It is suggested you refer to printer manufacturer instructions first as the Inkjet411 procedures are provided for general guidance purposes only. A dirty service station can cause poor image quality and/or ink cross-contamination between different colors:
http://inkjet411.retailinkjet.com/?page_id=1495
If the problem still cannot be corrected, then the PRINTHEAD may be dry and may need to be flushed (i.e. with warm water as it could have dried out, but this is a function of how much you print). Remove and soak in hot water for 5 minutes...thoroughly dry printhead prior to re-installing. Retest. For more information please visit:
http://inkjet411.retailinkjet.com/?page_id=856
Worst case scenario the PRINTHEAD may simply be electrically damaged or at end-of-life (typically fails between 3,000 and 5,000 printed pages) and may require replacement, usually accompanied by error messages like Incompatible Printhead or Ink Delivery/System Failure. NOTE: The PRINTHEAD will eventually fail in time. For more information on the how the PRINTHEAD works, watch the video here: http://inkjet411.retailinkjet.com/?page_id=1983
To verify Printhead performance, run the Tap 41 diagnostic test, (Pen Status: Pen OK).....for printer model instructions please visit:

More than likely your running out of ink. Check the ink levels first.
If you have Windows 7 you can check this by clicking on the "Start" button at the bottom of the screen, click on the "HP" folder and click on "HR Solutions Center". A graft will come up showing you the printer cartridges levels. Click on the small graft chart at the top right of the screen and the graft will enlage and show you exactly the staus of the ink levels. Click "Print" at the bottom of the screen and it'll run a print test. All 4 cartridges need to be above the "Low" level. It only takes one of them to mess up the print.

If you've got plenty of ink try cleaning the printer head by:
Click "Setup" (just below and left of the LED screen) on the printer.
Scroll the Led screen to "6. Tools". Hit "OK"
Now scroll to "2. Clean printhead". Hit "OK".

This should do it..

SOURCE: HP officejet 6500 does not dispense ink

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Officejet 6500 wireless has stopped printing ALL color.


Send the cartridges back! HP cartridges are coded and will only work with HP printers. Hp has had problems with their coded cartridges. Especially if they were manufactured overseas. Their own product won't recognize the cartridges. It is not the printer it is the cartridges.

I also have the OfficeJet 6500 and had the same problem. The black text was printing using a mix of colored inks instead of the black ink, resulting in a grey, fuzzy text. I finally found a solution. In each application under Page Setup, there is an option called "Format for". Mine had been set to "Any Printer". I changed that to "Officejet 6500 E709n [830E4A]" and now it prints the black just fine. I have a Mac running 10.4.11. Hope this helps.
