I’m trying to print from my HP C6350–just a back and white document. The page comes back blank. I’ve cleaned the print heads using the utility, and it seems like some black ink is coming out, but still couldn’t print the document. I tried aligning the print head, but that failed–no explanation why. It seems from the FAQs that HP wants me to buy a new print head for $75.00.
The printer is about five years old and well out of warranty.
Can I manually clean the print head somehow, say with ethyl alcohol and swabs? Or does the fact that alignment failed mean I really do need a new print head?
HP wants $75.00 for the print head. Should I just get a new all-in-one printer/copier/scanner? I can get something comparable from HP for under $200. I think these all-in-ones are probably a bit crap, but they serve my needs well enough and I can keep using all the ink I have, and I’ll have a new crappy printer instead of an aging one.
Is it possible I just have a bad black ink cartridge? I just changed it and the printer says it’s full, but maybe, right?
Any thoughts welcome.
