  • the ink lights does not work

    Product name: Deskjet 2050 All - in - one J510a

    Copy in black ink not working, warning lights did not show (and never did).

    Product name: Deskjet 2050 All - in - one J510a

    Operating system: Windows 8, 64 bits

    Copy and printing in black ink do not work.  No light warning flashing on the printer.

    Via the computer, I get the black ink levels (bowtie symbol?) is ok, but less than 25%.

    The cartridge ink levels color is close to zero, it is said.  How ever, when copying, the color works nice

    but printing in black ink does not at all.

    I tried to clean the inkheads twice.

    Should I replace both cartridges?

    Why don't show the printer ink level lights?

    Why computer don't warn me about low ink levels?

    Hi @malin_t,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    I understand that the ink lights do not work and you cannot print in black with your HP Deskjet 2050, and I'm happy to help you!

    If you have tried everything in this guide, solve the problems of quality Print to the HP Deskjet 1050, 1050 A, 2050 and 2050 all-in - One Printer Series. Then I would definitely consider replacing both cartridges.

    About the ink levels, there should be an icon of HP printer on your desktop. Double-click it to open it, click the picture of the level of ink in the HP Solution Center, and then click the advance tab Setiings, here you can choose if you want alerts of ink to showed immediately or only when you print.

    Hope this information helps and have a great day!

  • HP Photosmart C7280 solutions Center does not work after Windows 7 32 bit upgrade

    I recently updated my operating system from Windows Vista to Windows 7 (32 bit).  Before the upgrade, my C7280 worked fine using the center of Solution and in my home wireless network.  After the upgrade to Windows 7 and download and install PS_AIO_02_Net_Full_Win_WW_130_140.exe, version 13.1.0, Solution Center does not work.

    At the opening of the solution Center, it displays disconnected printer.  Using the Wireless Setup Wizard, the printer connects to the network.  I can open the Solution Center and it works very well for about 3 seconds and then goes to the printer disconnected mode.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled the software update for Windows 7 package C7280 repeatedly and with the same results.  I downloaded and installed the patches and still no change.

    I finally had to restore my computer to original operating system.  After the computer back to its original configuration, I used the original to HP Photosmart printer disk to reinstall the driver for Windows Vista.  Everything worked as before.  Then I ran the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor.  Yet once, he told me that the HP Photosmart C7280 printer was not compatible with Windows 7.  I uninstalled the printer driver and run Windows 7 upgrade advisor.  This time, I have not received any message about the C7280 printer.

    I installed upgrading to Windows 7 (32-bit), and then upgrade the HP Photosmart C7280 for Windows 7 32-bit driver.  Everything works fine now.

  • HP Officejet 6700 main Premium: Blue ink cartridge does not work

    Hello, I have checked the ink cartridges levels three color and just installed a new black ink cartridge.  I did a test of color, which shows any blue.  I did all three levels of cleaning the cartridge heads.  The screen still shows that I have adequate levels of ink, but no blue out at all!  There was a drop of blue outside the cartridge, so it's not like it is clogged.  Thank you!

    Hey @ccardot ,

    I understand that you do not get any blue print!

    That's really all that you can do and really all I can do you! The print head is probably the issue.  Please contact HP phone Support and see what they can do to help.

    If you are in the Canada, U.S. dial 800-474-6836 or you can Contact HP worldwide.

    HP printers usually have a warranty of 1 year from the date of purchase, you can check the warranty using the following if you wish; guarantee cheque.

    I hope this helps. Have a great day and a wonderful new year!
