Hp Photosmart 5510 Won't Print Black Ink




What do you think about this video?

vivian van: Just got this issue two days ago, although i been using for almost 2 years. Tried so many times and still didn't work, i hate hp now !!!! 

Mina Burrows: I tried all these suggestions. Nothing worked. I'm very frustrated. Thanks for the video though. I won't be buying HP again.

AgentErick99: Had the same problem I had to remove the print head and really really clean it. I called HP they were no help tried to sell me a new printer. But it was fixed and it worked. When I cleaned it I noticed there was a lot of ink backed up in the printer head. I did a print test a few times and it was back to Normal. I had a HP Photosmart C410. 

Ace Revo: Ive tried it all.. NOTHING WORKS!! If it got HP in it, go away! 

James Upton: Iv just spent 4 hours on this piece of crap....I will NEVER EVER buy HP again!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wasted 20 euros on parts for this absolute disgrace! 121,000 views for this problem!!! Is this even legal to sell such poor quality printers?

simon choe: H

zoe voellm: THANK YOU SO MUCH. I was ready to give up. Used an old towel, moistened it and rubbed over the screen over and over.

David Combs: I have only used this printer like 3 times and already having this problem……..HP Blows!

Michael Cann: YOU'RE THE MAN!! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!

Tim Danaher: Thank you so much! I was at the end of my tether!!!

Stay Isie: freak HP!!! Taking money from over 100000 people buy selling them such a garbage, than what happend next is that the printer wont paint and customers dont get any support of the lousy so called Support-Team. PLEASE PEOPLE STAY FAR FROM Hewlett Packard...FAR AS POSSIBLE !!!

RaineyCat: Finally! My printer now prints black ink! Seems like a simple fix...but HP didn't tell me. Thanks.

James Benner: This worked for me but I used a q-tip. I had to run the clean head 3 times!! 

d c: Thank you very much for posting this. I was about the throw the printer out after having tried everything to get the black ink cartridge to work. Following several washes with a wet paper towel as you recommended I am finally seeing output. It's not perfect but it is a massive improvement. Thanks. 

Steve Ash: This didn't work for me, although it seems to have done for others. No admission from HP that this is a major problem, despite 90,405 hits on this page, so clearly a common problem. Will definitely go to another vendor next time.

Cindy Goddard: Thank you for the video. Unfortunately, this did not work. As well as other suggestions from HP. Just simply quit printing black, even with new cartridges. The 5510 is simply a piece of useless garbage. Never again.

DASH35: ok After several tries and close to 30 bucks for new black in no go. you have over 86,000 hits for this issue HP should be ashamed of them selves. not buying HP again their computers suck too. 

Camilla Ferguson: Not working for me! I've used super hot water and dried it - run the "clean print heads" feature about 5 times....no luck. Any other suggestions? 

Adrian Thomas: You are totally brilliant. Don't know who you are, but was about to buy a new printer. Your trick has worked and I am very thankful.

BetaboyBuffet: If it's not whining for new ink it prints striped pages. Don't think i'll get a third HP. 

Jay Williams: This didn't work for me, however it did lead me to investigate getting the head out of the printer which has fixed my problem! I have posted instructions of how I did this here - http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Printer-All-in-One-Install-Setup/HP-Photosmart-5510-Print-Head-Removal/m-p/3885340#M140310 Hope it helps someone!

Michelle Miller: Tried it....Still can not get my blank ink to work!!! It's got a brand new HP ink cartridge in it. Very frustrating!!!

Somalia Carmichael: After doing this reclean ink head and smears it kinda helps

Greg W: I've tried this several times . I've put new cartridges in. I give up, The printer is basically a piece of crap

Michael Axelsson: After doing this for about 4 times, using boiled water dripping right down throug the filter screen until the filter was full. Then softly blowing it dry with high preasured air, wet the filter again, blowing, wet, blow and finaly wet the filter ful and dry of the top filled water with a bit of tissue, then replacing the cartridge agian. Run the cartridge cleaning program a couple of times, then after doing the procedure above for about 4 times it starts working... Be patient, everyone, it will solve the dried up ink in the filter eventually. As I wrote, it took me about 4 times before it worked... Thanks alot for this tips, man !!! Saved me some money for a new printer (this one is only 18 month old, but I've used re-filled, no-HP cartridges, so I've taken a known risk ;-) )

Marlena Linne: After spending 2 1/2 frustrating hours and getting nowhere fast, this gentleman solved my problem in 10 minutes. It's too bad HP can't do the same.

isabella1001: thank you!!!!!!

jdmartz: Fantastic. Thank you so much.

Stuart Jones Media: YES! I can use my printer again!!!

JustJTV: piece of crap! i hate this printer. thanks man

Skin Bombing: Great youtube. Short and simple. Worked like a charm!!!

Dean Nishijima: I've had this problem before and it's very frustrating. I solved the problem by going into the HP 5514 settings and had the printheads cleaned. I just hope I can remember this next time it happens. Hope this helps.

MVrockersPS3: 20 min before school lovely.

krista Grant: Thank you! My printer is fixed! I was so angry! And now it's great!

Mike Sutherland: I have had this printer for about 12-13 months and have recently replaced all 60 plus dollars worth or cartridges thinking that the ink dried up due to inactivity. After spending about an hour working on Christmas letters and 2 hours troubleshooting a printing not printing, I was on the verge of smashing this printer to bits! HP customer NO-support was worthless. I will try this technique and give it a go. If it does not work, I am going to mangle this thing, box it and ship it to HP's CEO or their quality control department. Regardless, I will never buy a HP related product again. Terrible and greedy company! Oh, Merry Christmas everyone! 

ninjanonimus: no way for me... still doent work!!! i think it is programmed to fail...

DavidWhatley2: Brilliant. So simple when you know how! Thanks

howtheheliru: Dude !!! This has been driving me nuts. Man i did as you said and all set. Great advise! thanks

After Hours Tv & Pc repair: Your Welcome! Thanks for the feedback!

After Hours Tv & Pc repair: the plastic on top for the vent hole on ink isnt clogged is it? did you remeber to vent the ink cartridge?

After Hours Tv & Pc repair: is it black or somewhat black? clean it and see what happens.

WonkaaVision: I used ISO alcohol, Also watch a documentary called "The light bulb conspiracy", there is a section of that documentary that exposes the companies for adding a chip which counts the number of pages that you print, after this limit is reached the printer automatically stops working forcing you to buy another.

After Hours Tv & Pc repair: see jame's comment.

After Hours Tv & Pc repair: You are welcome!

Bilodeauart: Me too.....so frustrating. Tried the wet towel didn;t work. Tried the cleaning tool from support. Nothing works!!!!

After Hours Tv & Pc repair: your welcome! glad to hear it works for others!

regdawgformerusmc: call HP and complain! I did it and they said that they do not have complaints on this model!

James Zolnowsky: Wet towel didn't work for me either, so I ran hot water through a towel, rang most of it out then dropped a few drops on the screen until it was full. Replaced cartridge, Problem solved!

EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
