if you are to lift the top part of your printer you will see the cartridges inside as shown below:

Lifting the scanner bed exposes the entire paper path and gives your hands plenty of space to replace ink or clear paper jams.

It seems simple enough, but this is one of the most effective ways of fixing printer cartridge error. Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached.

To reattach the printer cartridge check the following steps :

  • Turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head.
  • Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report.
  • Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

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.

Try updating the printer driver. If that fails, then this problem may be mechanical in nature.

HP Officejet Pro K8600 won't print in color, just in black


Ink levels are an estimate. They are approximated according to how much color might have been used. You may be out of all the color inks, they may be dried out or clogged. There should be a head cleaning operation for the printer, but it uses ink too.

My HP Officejet Pro K550 is not printing the cyan (blue) ink. It has a new cartridge. I've run print quality pages and configuration pages -- no cyan shows up. I cleaned the printheads and no c


Do a test print...
assuming you have done multiple print head cleans... if it fails to print ANY cyan, I'd guess the print head is dead... although to be honest im not an expert with this hp printer. if that is the case, it probably isnt worth repairing.
If it does print some cyan, just missing, you may be able to find info, sorry, I cant help you there, on accessing the service or maintenance mode and doing a higher level clean, if your printer supports that.
As a last option, disassembly and soaking the bottom of the print head in cleaning solution /water... overnight, without getting ANY water on any contacts, then re running print cleans.

good luck

in my exp, again, not with this printer, mind you, if a print head fails to print ANY ink for a given colour, the print head is usually faulty.

Hope this info helps

Hello my 7590 printer will not print in cyan


The chances are you have a defective cyan ink cartridge. If you are using an aftermarket/reloaded cartridge and the cartridge chip is defective. First try a new cartridge. The best bet is a new OEM cartridge, run the deep cleaning utility 3 times. The nozzle may be clogged and this will clean the nozzle.
Aftermarket/reloaded cartridges ink do not always meet the specifications for the printers that use the finer inks.
Let me know if this works for you. Thanks.

Do you have the operators manual? Run it through a cleaning cycle. Also Xerox's website will guide you through some maintenance steps. If you are using generic wax, you may have clogged the jets.
