HPS 6500 all-in-one won't print

First it just wouldn't print black. Changed the cartridge - still no black ink. Took everything apart and cleaned it thoroughly/carefully as per instructions. Then no printing of any color. Changed the print head. Still no printing. It sounds like it is printing but no ink on paper. Any ideas? Thanks.

SOURCE: color ink not printing

Ahhrgh! Don't use windex. It contains additives that can harm the printer head.
I suggested this site in another post and it could help you.

At a guess your print head is blocked, it'll need a drop of head cleaning solution. They sell it fairly cheaply on ebay.

    The printer's lying to me


    The printer requires both cartridges to have ink before the printer will initialize and operational. Even if you are only printing black and white both cartridge have to contain ink or the printer will error out. This is standard on all ink jet printers from every manufacturer. You will have to get ink before you can print.

    My hp photosmart 5514 won't print. I put in new ink-black and color- and it goes through the motions, but the page is empty


    I just had this exact problem on my HP 5514. Black won't print after running out of black ink. New cartridge no good.
    I tried everything-no good. I suspected the pinholes in the printhead were clogged with dried ink because I didn't change cartridge in time.
    The fix that worked perfectly was when I hacksaw top off old black cartridge & removed all foam wicks so now I had a funnel(can see clear thru). I installed the cartridge & filled it with alcohol, printed page & did head clean; then printed few more pages. Problem cleared almost immediately. I then soaked up extra alcohol inside cartridge with paper towel. Removed modified cartridge & installed good one. I guess this could be done for colors as well. I don't know if this is a proper procedure, but it sure worked well for me.

    My HP 6500 wont print black ink. It's like a very very light grey and I can't see it. Tried 2 new print cartridges and no luck. Please help.


    Hello,

    The HP 6500 printer has separate in cart and print heads. The light print you are getting is because the print head in clogged with dry ink. First thing to try is to go into the printer software on your computer and do a print head cleaning procedure, this will take a few minutes to finish. You may have to run this several times to clear out the dry ink. If this does not solve the problem when you will need to get a replacement print head, the part number is CB868-30002

    My hp 6500 won't print black. I've changed the cartridge twice. No result. Can the ink not be getting to the printer head?


    Unplug the printer for at least overnight. I have 3 of these printers and all 3 have done this. All 3 came back after being unplugged for a long period.
    Personally, I think a class action suit might be in order.

    here's a solution i came across when dealing with the same problem. apparently the printer expects all of the cartridges to be full and has a sensor to make sure they are even when only printing black. hope this helps!

    the body of text of the test page is black ink. From what you describe, the print heads are clogged. Most HPs use cartridges that have the head built in, but if not used for an externded period they can dry up and clog.
    Try repeated head cleanings (10 or more) see if any change. If none, try new HP ink cartridges

    Hello

    Your printhead is bad and you should have it replaced.This should cost you about $56 if you are in the US

    Also you should reolace all the waste ink absorbers,reset the counter to zero and re-insert the ink cartridges.

    To replace the ink cartridges


    1. Hit the "menu": Key
    2. Hit "Copy" Key
    3. Hit "#" Key
    4. Scroll thru the menu headings until you come to "Test Mode" - 12th heading
    5. Hit the "3" button- this will bring up Eprom Clear
    6. Hit "0" button
    7. Hit the "Stop" button

    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.

    Printer only won't print in black


    My printer did that a few months ago. I tried everything to get it printing black but in the end I had to take the ink cartridge back and return a new one. Some ink cartridges dry out when they are being shipped if not stored in proper conditions.
