Customer Question
For some reason my HP...
For some reason my HP Officejet 6500A Plus has quit printing color pictures. My ink is okay and it prints all the other information okay but a picture won't come through. I'm using a PC but recently tried to hook the printer up to my laptop without putting in the disc. I'm on wireless. What do I do now?

Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Are you able to make a color copy fine from the printer's glass (not printing from the computer)?

When you print a picture, what exactly happens?

How about when printing a web page (that has color / pictures)?

Do you have windows xp, vista, or 7 or 8 or 10 computer or mac computer?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you.
