Is the paper just going through but coming out blank?
Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
yes. I didn't start out that way, printing became light and illegible. I have changed the black cartridge 3 times, it is not that. Other colors work, it is just black
Technician: Richard, Technician replied 2 years ago
Thanks
Try to clean the nozzle where the black cartridge goes in.
Use a Q Tip and try to unblock it there then try to print.
Let me know the results please

it is indeed better, but i don't know how long that will last, as at some parts of the page are very light. I also got an error message for the first time when i tried to print. i am going to try the cue tip again. please hang on and i willget back to you
Technician: Richard, Technician replied 2 years ago
No problem and thanks
Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No dice. I have tried cleaning until the cue tip is not black anymore. Now it is again printing but increasingly light and illegible.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
it is printing in color (red).
Technician: Richard, Technician replied 2 years ago
Thanks
It is the printhead that has faulted.
As its not removable in this printer, it requires a complete disasemble and the print head replaced. But they do not see this seperatly so it needs to be done in a printer repair store.
It will be covered by the warranty, and the replacement will be done at know cost to you. If the warranty has expired, then you are best to purchase a new printer as the cost to repair this would exceed the value of the printer.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Thank you. It's out of warranty, but only 2 years old. I have looked on the internet and it seems there are chronic complaints with this HP printer. Is that the case to your knowledge?
Technician: Richard, Technician replied 2 years ago
I would not say Chronic but it can suffer this issue, but all printers can.
What you Always have to make sure is that you purchase a printer with a removable print head.
If this one had one, we could fix it ourselves.
