e-All-In-One series C410: HP Photosmart - black print cartridge produces only "ghost image".

The black print cartridge produces a ghost image.  I installed a new cartridge with the same results.  The photo and 3 color cartridges cartridge are all ok.  I also introduced "clean printhead" and ran a "print quality report", where black could not appear in the report.

Dragon fur, I rechecked possible solutions in your response, and after a new test of everything that I had already done, I noticed an alignment test.  That was the problem.  I tried to clean the print heads, as a last resort, on my 4 year old printer.  Solution: I bought a new printer.

Thank you for your wonderfully detailed answer.

    I use my all-in-one HP Officejet 6300 as a standalone Copier, because he's too old to install it on my Windows 7. Now, I get the error message that the print cartridge door is open. I can't find any door open but can not use the machine until I get rid of this message.

  • Reinstallation of HP Photosmart e-All-IN-one series D110

    My operating system is Windows 8 (64 bit) I had to unstall my HP Photosmart e-all-in-one series D110 printer. I had problems with it a few times where I received a message that it was installed properly and put on the CD to complete the installation.  But when I put the CD in I got the page but there is no other option than EXIT. I use the wireless control. So, no I unhooked the printer and used a cleaning tool. Restarted my computer and put it in the drive to start the installation.  I get this same page with only one OUTPUT option.  Any thoughts what I can do to have it installed.

    I suggest you download the driver from HP here. Another alternative would be to use the Assistant driver available at http://www.hp.com/go/tools.

  • HP psc 2410 photosmart all in one series, all of a sudden takes an hour to photocopy or print a page...

    HP psc 2000 series, model 2410 photo smart all-in-one series. Windows 7 operating system. Suddenly takes an hour for photocopying or printing. no error message. Transport print access door may have been opened during a previous print session. Power unit failure and restart and remove and reinsert the cartridges has no effect.

    This is caused by the failure of one of your cartridges. I don't remember if the PSC 2410 will support printing (do not copy) with a cartridge removed in reserve mode, but try the following: remove the black print cartridge and print a test page.  The printer prints at a normal speed?  Is therefore the black cartridge was the issue and needs to be replaced.  If it isn't then, put the black back cartridge in and remove the color cartridge and the test page printed.  If the printer now prints speed the color cartridge is responsible and must be replaced.

  • ENVY 4500 e-All-in-One-Series: 4500 want don't scan text to produce a searchable PDF file

    I used to have a printer Photosmart 4400 C that would allow me to scan to produce searchable PDF files, i.e. I could select letters or words in a text selection tool in my PDF reader.   Today, I just bought a DESIRE 4500 e-All-in-One-Series.  It will scan only text to give me a graphic PDF that is not searchable.  I've updated to the latest version of the EN4500_198.exe driver, but it does not help.

    Does anyone have a solution?


    No, the 4500 desire doesn't have any default OCR software, you will have to pay for the software and believe it or not, that the software is more expensive than the printer itself. You can buy the software or you can try to use some free software around:

  • want to 4500 all-in-one series

    I bought an envy4500 all in one series and after all tests and installation correctly, I had only one problem: when I print from excel files including 'grid' the printer will print all the lines in files. Sometimes jump the line grids, then print two or three grids correctily and back to the grid (lines). I made a copy of old copies and the copy was perfect.

    Thank you


    Impression in 'best' or 'quality' mode should solve your problem.

    Alternatively, you can also use any other border style in Excel and it should print correctly.

    I would be grateful if this does not resolve your problem, or a problem on something other then Excel, border 'Style 2' in mode 'Normal' or 'Draft' hearing.

    Thank you!

  • I tried to connect my printer HP Deskjet 2540 all-in-One Series to my Dell Inspiron 15

    Separated from this thread.

    Hi Bill,

    I tried to connect my HP Deskjet 2540 all-in-One Series printer to my Dell Inspiron 15 for two days without success.  Can you help me?


    I have a HP DeskJet 2540 on my Dell Inspiron 1545.

    The instructions from HP work so you should be fine if you follow them.  The CD contains a ReadMe file that describes the installation procedure.

    You must install the software first, and only then connect the printer.  Note that you will first need to install it on a USB connection.  You can change this later if, like me, you intend to use it with WiFi.
