Photosmart 6510: photosmart 6510 prints blank pages

Printer was working fine.  Had to change the cartridge. First of all, I didn't have black and now I don't have much color either.  The printer says I had no real HP though now it shows that I do. I never bought my cartridges anywhere but the staples.  Printing October 2012 have changed many cartridges before you buy.  Followed everything I could find.  Still not printing.

Hi @mjohns390,

I read your post and see that you can not print in black or color now. I would like to help you today. If this helps you to find a solution, please click on the button "" accept as Solution"" down below this message. If you want to say thanks for my effort to help, click on the 'Thumbs Up' to give me a Kudos.

Please, try the following steps to see if it will help solve the problem.

Printer cannot print black ink or color ink or prints blank Pages.

This document is for the cleaning of the cartridge and the contacts, check the tab on the cartridge and the printer reset. "Incompatible cartridge" or "indicated ink cartridge needs to be replaced" message on the c...

If the problem persists, perform a power reset. A alphanumeric Code (example: ' 0 x 'r' C2...) ") displays on the front panel when printing. Do not take into account the title.

This model has a permanent print head, this video shows you how to access the print head, so you can manually clean the printer and soak the printhead, it's my own personal recommendation, not one of HPs, is to use the solution proposed in the following videos.  I suggest only doing this if the printer is out of warranty.

Once you get to the clock at 3:20 minutes, you can stop this video.

Разборка HP Photosmart 6510 (disassembly Photosmart HP 6510)...

This video is for a different model but it will provide the steps to move the print head and cleaning, also if you continue the video it will provide measures to remove the print head and soaking. Play video 01:24 minutes. HP 5510 will not print black and color - print head removed and cleaned.

If you have completed all the above steps and your product still has a problem, service the product.

I hope this helps. Let me know how make you out. Thank you.

    Hi @Alf3,

    Welcome to the HP Support forum.

    I understand that you have a HP Photosmart 8050 printer that prints blank pages. I would like to help with that.

    There is more support for the HP Photosmart 8050 printer available document any longer because it was added to the list of retirement of HP product.

    Here's a document, for a newer model of the HP Photosmart, that can be used to solve this problem, because the steps are generally the same - printer prints blank Page or does not print black or color ink.

  • HP Photosmart C309 printing blank pages


    I have a HP Photosmart C309a printer which has worked well until recently. The problem seems to have started after the tray of food thing was hit and fall, but it is difficult to say for sure because I didn't print a few weeks after that. There is no visible damage to the tray, and it will lock in place without problem. Now it is just printing blank pages.

    I did a test print (print quality report), and this is what came out:

    If I remember correctly, there are two black cartridges in your printer, the smallest with the symbol looks like two triangle pointing together, is the photo black ink, it is only used for printing photos. The greatest with the symbol of the Pentagon is ink black text. If the printer reports that non-empty black ink, but do not print text black (after 'cleaning print head'), there could be only two things, I'm afraid:
    1. the black printhead is dead and need replaced. or
    2. the passage of the ink cartridge to the print head does not, it will take a professional service (repair).

  • Pavilion a6312p: Photosmart 7510 prints blank page

    I have a HP Photosmart 7510, who served me well for over a year until what I tried to use it today.  I tried to print a letter in Microsoft Word 2010, and the printer produces a blank page.  The ink levels are good, in fact, I have a brand new black and photo black installed this week.  I tried to print a test page and nothing printed except the logo of Microsoft of color and words, printer Windows-Page of Test, the text is so light that I could barely read.  I have cleaned the printheads twice, and represented the test page with the same result.  I don't know what else to do.  The HP Scan and print doctor said all control very well.

    I used the printer every day since the installation of the new black cartridges and it was working fine until today, so I know this isn't the issue.  I hope there, can someone give me an overview of this issue.

    Hi bankercop,

    I see that you have a hard time getting black ink for printing with the Photosmart 7510, I would like to offer a suggestion. Have you tried cleaning the print head manually?

    Accumulation of ink can lead to this problem and the own automatic does not built / dried ink in the head.

    Although this guide: 'Is missing or does not have the print head' or "Print head is not detected, missing or not installed correctly" appears for HP Photosmart e-all-in-one 7510 Printer series, addresses, a print head missing, the cleaning steps are the same.

    I hope this helps you. See you soon!

  • HP Photosmart 5520: Printer prints blank pages suddenly

    Yesterday, my printer decided that he would simply print blank pages with a black line in the middle. I did a test print via the configuration menu and it prints fine. My wife can print wireless. And until yesterday I had no problem.

    Looks like there is something wrong with the print on your Mac driver. To resolve this problem, we will need refresh your printing system and re - add the printer driver.

    Reset the printing system:

    To begin, I will have you reset the printing system on your Mac. Please click herefor instructions on how to perform the reset. When the site opens, follow the steps under"Reset printing in OS X Lion system" because the steps are the same for Mac OS X 10.10. This Reset deletes each printer on your Mac. However, it does not uninstall printers. Therefore, if use you other printers on the Mac, once the reset is complete simply make sure printers are attached via a USB cable or connected network and (+) add hide them po do add not your HP Photosmart back in right now.

    Once the reset is complete, proceed to the next step.

    Check and repair your Mac disk permissions:

    1. Open Macintosh HD and go to Applications
    2. Go to the Utilities folder
    3. Open disk utility
    4. Select the hard disk volume, you use (usually on the left)
    5. Select verify disk permissions
    6. Once this process is complete, select repair disk permissions

    Add device:
    1. click on the menu of Apple , then Preferences System.

    2. click on print and scan and then check if the name of your printer appears in the printer list.

    3. click on the name of your printer, click the sign minus (), then remove the printer.

    4. click on the plus sign (), click Add a printer or a Scanner, click the name of your printer.

    5. click on the area of use or with the help of Print and then select the name of your printer on the shortcut menu. Ensure that the driver of the HP Photosmart camera is selected.

    6. click Add to add the printer to the list. Do not add the AirPrint driver.


    Once your printer is properly added to, please try printing again to verify that the problem is now resolved.

  • HP photosmart Plus B210 series - prints blank pages

    Hello, I got the printer above for about 4 years with no problems. He suddenly started printing blank pages. I went through all the cleaning cycles, alignment etc., but without success. I bought a new genuine HP print head and installed new cartridges and still once, it prints blank pages. The message I get is that alignment process has failed. Does this mean the printer is down and I'll have to buy a new one, or can you suggest a solution? I went through all the steps suggested for this type of printer on your forum, but I still get blank pages. It is a disaster for me and my wife whose work depends on the network printer. Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi @drbince,

    Given you have changed the print head and the problem persists, according to me, maybe it's time to consider a replacement printer.

    Alignment is a failure because the printer does not black. If you have followed all the steps in the following document, it might be time to give us a call to weigh your replacement options: HP Photosmart Plus B210 printer - color or black ink not print.

    If the problem persists, what you can do, is to use the following link to create yourself a file number, then call and it can help to expedite the appeal process:

    Step 1. Open the link:
    Step 2. Enter the product number or select Auto detection
    Step 3. Scroll up to "still need help? Fill out the form to select your contact options.
    Step 4. Scroll down and click on options contact HP - click Get phone number
