HP Printer Not Printing After Refilling Ink [Solved]

If your HP printer is not printing properly after refill, try the following solutions to fix this problem. If any solution fixes the problem, do not continue troubleshooting.

1. Remove the Protective Tape on the Cartridge

When cartridges are packaged, they are shipped with protective tape that covers the nozzle of the printhead. The job of this protective tape is to stop it from dripping out of the cartridge. If this tape is not removed, the ink cartridge will be unable to supply ink to the printer. This, in turn, will prevent the printer from printing. So, if you are asking “why is my HP printer not printing after changing cartridges?” it could be that the protective tape has not been removed.

 Therefore, before installing the new cartridge into your printer, look for the protective tape on the cartridge and remove it. Apart from the protective tape, don’t remove other labels or stickers on the ink cartridge. Such labels or stickers prevent the ink in the cartridge from drying out.

2. Reset the Counter of the Ink Cartridge

Your HP printer not printing after refill could be due to your printer’s ink counter reading the cartridge as empty. Therefore, in such a case, you need to reset the cartridge. The feature and process of how to do this vary depending on the model. Therefore, you need to consult your user manual to learn how to do this.

3. Perform a Cleaning Cycle on your HP Printer

One of the reasons responsible for your HP printer not printing after you change the cartridge is that the ink might have dried out if the cartridge stayed in storage for a long time. If this is the case, you should perform a cleaning cycle on your HP printer.

We advise that you consult your printer’s user manual to learn how to do this since the process differs from model to model.

4. Examine the Cartridge (if you refilled the Ink)

Refilling ink cartridges is not recommended by HP since doing such could lead to further complications and issues.

For instance, if the cartridge is not properly filled, your printer might not print. Also, the ink might not reach the lowest part of the cartridge’s reservoir. Therefore, to fix this issue, inject additional ink into your cartridge’s sponge via the exit hole.

Another thing you need to do is free the air bubbles in the cartridge that is obstructing the ink from flowing. To do this, keep the ink cartridge on an even surface for an hour. This should enable the trapped bubble to escape by itself. In case this doesn’t work, tap the cartridge gently on a flat surface to free the bubble.

After doing the above, check if your HP printer can print: If your HP printer cannot print, visit www.HPinstantink.com for information.

Your printer should power on automatically when the power cable is reconnected. However, if it fails to power on, press the power button to turn it on. After that, wait for the printer to become idle before trying to print again.

If the issue persists after doing the reset, do the next solution.

HP Printer Not Printing No Error [Solved]

To fix the HP printer not printing no error message, do the following troubleshooting steps:

1. Restart your HP Printer and Computer

A simple restart on both devices is the first troubleshooting you should try when your HP printer is not printing but displays no error message.

After resetting both devices, check if the issue is resolved.

If your printer is still not printing, do the next troubleshooting.

2. Reconnect the USB Cable

If your printer is connected to your computer via a USB cable, you need to confirm that the connection between both devices is okay. Unplug the USB cable at both ends, and then reconnect it to the devices.

After doing that, try to print again; if it prints, then the USB cable was not connected properly.

However, if it fails to print, try the next step.

3. Connect via another USB Port

If the USB port currently in use is faulty, it could cause your printer not to print without displaying any error message.

To confirm that the port in use isn’t faulty, connect the USB cable to another USB port on your computer. Now, try to print a document.

If the document prints, then the initial port was faulty.

However, if the printer still fails to print, don’t lose heart; we still have some other things you can try.

4. Disconnect the USB Cable from the Docking Station or USB Hub

Connecting your HP printer and computer via a docking station or USB hub might prevent your printer from printing. If this is the case, you need to disconnect the cable and then connect it directly to your computer.

Check if the printer is now printing.

If it is not printing, do the next step.

5. Use another USB Cable

After doing all the above, it is possible that the USB cable is damaged. Therefore, to confirm this, you should connect your printer to your computer using another USB cable. Most HP printers recommend the use of USB cables not longer than 3 meters (9 feet 10 inches).

6. Unplug other USB-Connected Devices

When more than two USB-connected devices are connected to your computer, the power supplied to all the USB ports might not be sufficient to enable the computer to detect all at once. If this is the case, remove those other devices you aren’t using.

The HP printer not printing through USB problem can also be resolved by following the troubleshooting steps above.

HP Printer New Cartridge Not Printing Properly [Solved]

If you recently installed a new cartridge into your HP printer and it isn’t printing properly, do the following to resolve the issue:

1. Confirm that the Cartridge is Installed Correctly

Open your printer’s cartridge access door, and then check if the cartridge is correctly seated in its slot. If it is not, ensure that it is installed firmly into its place.

2. Remove the Protective Tape

New cartridges come with protective tape and plastic. Before installation, these materials are to be removed. If you forgot to remove them, this could be the reason why your printer is not printing. Therefore, you should examine the cartridge for the tape and plastic and then remove them accordingly. 

3. Verify that you are Using a Genuine HP Cartridge

Most HP printers only work with genuine HP cartridges. Therefore, you need to be sure that the cartridge is an HP cartridge. Not only that, but you also need to confirm that the cartridge is genuine even if it bears the HP logo.

4. Check for Obstruction in the Carriage Path

HP Printer Not Printing On Photo Paper [Quick Fix]

If your HP printer is not printing on photo paper, do the following to fix the problem:

1. Confirm that the Right Media Type is selected

Sometimes, the reason your HP printer fails to print on photo paper is that the right media type is not selected. So, you need to confirm if the right media type is selected. Go to your computer’s printing preferences and choose the right media type. 

2. The Photo Paper Might be thicker than the Printer’s Ability

The type of printer you have determines the kind of paper you can print on. While your printer might be equipped to print on photo paper, the thickness of the paper might be an issue.

Once the paper’s thickness exceeds the weight specification that your HP printer can handle, the printer will fail to print. The only thing to do in such a case is to change the paper to a weight that is supported by your printer.

You should check your printer’s user manual to confirm the maximum paper weight that the printer supports to enable you to buy the right photo paper.

3. Ensure that the Paper is Correctly Placed into the Tray

When loading the photo paper into the paper input tray, the glossy side of the paper should face down. If the paper is wrongly loaded, the printer will not print on the photo paper. Therefore, you need to confirm that the photo paper is facing down and not up.

4. Clean the Pickup Roller

Dirt on the pickup roller might also prevent your HP printer from printing. In such a case, you need to clean the pickup roller.

To clean the pickup roller of your HP printer, click this link: HP Printer Error No Paper Pickup – How to Clean HP Printer Pickup Roller, and then follow the steps under the “How to Clean HP Printer Pickup Roller” section.

5. Apply Inward Pressure on your HP Printer’s Rear Door

According to some users, applying inward pressure on your HP printer’s rear door while you print on photo paper will allow you to print. This solution is more of a temporary fix and should be done if you need to print urgently and the solutions we’ve shared so far didn’t work.

Tip: Place a small piece of wood and then fasten it to your printer’s rear door using gaffer tape. This way, you don’t have to apply the pressure yourself.

HP Printer Not Printing on Cardstock [Quick Fix]

Do the following to fix your HP printer not printing on cardstock problem:

1. Verify that your HP Printer Supports Printing on Cardstock

Not all HP printers are designed to print on cardstock. If you try to print on cardstock with such a printer, you might end up damaging your printer. Usually, printers that do not support cardstock printing encounter jams when trying to print with this paper type.

If you can’t print on cardstock or the paper is jamming, you should verify that your printer supports printing on this paper type. Usually, HP LaserJet and OfficeJet printers support printing on cardstock. HP DeskJet printers, on the other hand, do not support printing on cardstock.

To verify if your HP printer supports cardstock printing, check the user manual of your HP printer. If you don’t have a physical copy of the manual, you can check online for a digital copy.

You can also check your printer’s datasheet to verify if it supports cardstock printing. In your printer’s datasheet, look for the supported media weight and then compared this weight to that of the cardstock you want to print on.

If the weight of the cardstock is heavier than the supported weight, it means your printer won’t be able to print on that media. Therefore, you need to change the cardstock to a supported weight.

2. Change your HP Printer Tray Settings

To change the tray settings of your HP printer, click HP Printer Jam – Adjust your Printer Tray, and follow the steps under the “Adjust your Printer Tray” section.

3. Change your Windows Computer Printer Settings

To change your Windows computer printer settings, click HP Printer Jam – Change your Windows Computer Printer Settings, and the steps under the “Change your Windows Computer Printer Settings”.

HP Printer Not Printing From Tray 1 [Reasons & Solutions]

The following are the reasons and solutions to the HP printer not printing from Tray 1 problem:

1. Use of Wrong Paper Size

This problem occurs when the paper size selected in the print settings is not the same as the paper size loaded into your HP printer. In most cases, it leads to a paper mismatch error.

Therefore, we recommend you read this article: HP Printer Error Paper Mismatch [How to Fix]to learn how to fix this issue.

2. Paper Extension

When you load large sizes of paper into the Tray 1 of your HP printer, the paper tends to hang downwards because of the size. This hanging weight of the paper stack can cause misaligned sheets. This, in turn, leads to the HP printer not printing from Tray 1 issue.

To correct this, simply extend your printer’s tray extension to support the extra size of the paper. Also, you shouldn’t load excess paper into the print tray.

3. You are trying to print on an Envelope

Not all HP printers can print on envelopes from Tray 1. If you are trying to print on envelope and it is not printing, then it means your printer isn’t designed to print on envelopes from that tray.

We recommend that you read your user manual to find out which tray supports printing on envelope or whether your HP printer doesn’t support printing on envelope.
