Fixing Color Ink Cartridge in HP Printers

With high-quality printers and computers, HP has designed a line of affordable products along with best features. It creates a sense of good investment in the mind of the user while purchasing as well using its products. But apart from being user-friendly, Hp can face some technical glitches or can have problems.

If your color cartridge does not give you best results, then try the below steps for trying to get the printer running-

a. Start with removing and replacing the HP color cartridge. If required, release the holster locking structure after opening the HP printer cover. Until and unless the ink doesn’t release from the holster pull the color ink cartridge upward and outward. To reinstall the cartridge back, just reverse the removal process. Just ensure that the locking mechanism is fully closed after it clicks into its place.

b. To check whether the color cartridge is installed in its place or not, carefully see the slots. If it is placed in the wrong location, it will only affect the color cartridge to give incorrect prints. If location is the issue, then replace it for better results.

c. Now, remove it and check that the tape which covers the copper print head contacts is not displaced. If there is any tape left in the ink cartridge, remove it and replace the ink back on the printer.

d. Now, run an automatic cleaning cycle on the printer device. Go through the manual and follow the instructions. In the main operating menu on printer’s LCD screen, most HP printer devices have cleaning cycle available there.

e. Clean the copper contacts manually. For this, soak a soft cloth in warm water. Now, for few seconds put the copper contacts on a wet cloth. For removing any dry ink or clogged residue wipe the copper contact gently.

f. Then replace the HP color cartridge which doesn’t work with the new ink cartridge. Replace the refilled or generic with the original one. With the help, you can replace the clogged or dried ink without much effort and can continue with the print job again.
