Today, bluevelvetrestaurant.com would like to introduce to you How To Clean Printer Head in HP Printers HP Photosmart 8200 C8100 C5180 C6180. Following along are instructions in the video below:
” m going to miss tech and today. I m going to show you how to to fix non removable or fixed printer head in hp photosmart c. 51. 8001 printer.
Happens is if i can show you the that simples is the printer is not only printing colors right you can see i did a test page and on some of them see that there s streaks sure if you see it same thing. I did it tested on a photo and you have streaks all over the photo. So the photos already come out crappy and because you can see dirt the colors. Don t come out right especially blacks use the more kind of green.
This is i got it from the web. So it s definitely not even close. But it s supposed to be the reason. I m going to work on this printer is this is hp 50 wanna.
Any all in one printer and i m using ciss printing. Which is constant ink supply system and if you don t use it for a while your printhead gets clogged in your head. It has micro jets inside and some of the new plugs and that s why you call us an on command right the printhead in this printer is fixed. I mean you cannot remove it whatsoever.
So i found a solution where we hopefully we re going to try it out and we ll work ok so first thing is i went out and i m about empty refillable encourages for this printer. This is the hp oh inks so we have our empty refillable ink tank with a chip on its software setup and chip. So we can put them on the way. There.
Refillable encourages work you have to have the entire sets you cannot just get one and work they need the entire set. It also comes with a syringe so i paid about 20 bucks. For the empty inks next step. We re going to need some distilled water not weather off tap water.
But i still just because regular tap water has minerals and other stuff in it metals. That will clog the injector will not help so will be even worse next thing. We re going to get some rubbing alcohol and some ammonia and we re going to create a mixture to which your solution. Photos.
Inks all right so first thing. I got is i got some distilled water. In a cup. It s just roughly have no problem.
Oh 20. 30. Milliliters next. I m going to add rubbing alcohol to it ammonia.
So careful with a monica s does smell pretty bad so try not to spill. It okay so now we have a solution that we re going to use next thing. Take your syringe. Just sort of mix it up a little all right let s get a paper all right so.
What we will do is take the ink colors and t. It out i ll take out the plunge. We re going to get about forty mini mini leader of the solution and we re gonna add two lengths. Okay.
See forty is not enough so we re going to go another forty so total eighty. We don t want to fill up the entire tanks. But just enough to cover okay. They close that back up and again do the same thing for all the colors eighty or you can succeed some thing.
See the reason. Other one is my original ink are just because once on the cas system..
Once you put it in will be extremely hard to clean them get their solution out instead of rolling data perturbs cottages. We re going to get those and those will be our cleaning solutions or me all right. I ll turn the solution that you can use to actually use windex to make sure. It s the original windex wait ammonia d in it and isopropyl alcohol.
Ten percent. So can download the windex and make it run smaller this is alternative if you have ammonia. This is this what should work as well don t think about windex look at windex with our alcohol. Is that it bubbles up and then got to be more careful not to get those bubbles in it so that s why i m going to use ammonia.
But windex is actually a solution as well it s the case. You don t have ammonia you can still use it i mean should be okay. But i mean i would highly recommend that you probably don t use windex because of the bubbles. Then you got to sort of make sure that that the bubbles stay on top all right now that i filled up all the tanks.
Almost halfway to full if do it for it s fine. It s really how it depends on how much you re going to be printing or coming. They are the printhead next. We re going to go to our printer.
I m going to take out our ink coding system. So after that hatches all of them and be careful not to touch the grounds because they do have things on them out one by one and just we re just going to put them on the side. So get paper towel and to light up. There once we do that we re going to take our new inks and we start putting them in one by one next video just make sure you put a month.
So this case is the chip is on the right side so numbers up this is blue in this case. If you scrap on the colors. I m using will make a difference except not sure of the program. Specific to be different color or not or not but come in and now we re going to start printing like crazy so make sure you re gonna plan your paper your printer and we re probably going to print about 20 to 50 photos type images on papers.
This is so we can clean the print head correctly so let s get started and now the links are in the press ok. The printer accepted it so we re going to go to our software. Now schizos photoshop and we re going to create bunch of photos. So we go up or less in half by 11 best quality.
And so have the photo let s go first print thing we re going to go it s about 10 copies so again i select ten copies it s going to almost fit see scale to fit so let s go look out i m at 20. So i have borderless. I m going to click print. See so now that we have all the colors black or every pin watches for sort of testing your printer.
So let s see if it does print let me take a little while okay now we re printing a first sample. You ll see that they re so cold just because there actually is quarterly colors in the printer. So it didn t take time before it actually wipes out so that s why we want to create ten copies just keep in mind to keep an eye on the ink levels. So that way you don t feed them completely and air gets sucked in and around the printer.
So just keep an eye make sure they re filled so we re going to do this a couple times. You know probably much just but we just print five pages of time and keep check on your print. Ink levels and once we re done with that we ll see we re going to add some colors to lyons and test out if it s up for x the printing. I say the first one you see here how green is supposed to be gray and it s still printing green.
So some can tell whether things are going to be clean or not and of course. It s stop writing in color. So that means our solution hasn t kicked in yet and we re going to print. It till.
We do is we printed almost 10 copies as action area and you can see the practice action is activating. The rift flow things so you see you display of inks inside the printer. That is re the first things you put in they re gone like no time so right now. It s refilling.
It s going to mix mix in with that solution. So next cup of prints should be a lot lighter..
And you see how even the color will disappear now to check the ink levels. You can see it actually mixed in with a solution with the inks itself. Now so now we re going to have color. But again it should be a lot lighter and we re going to print.
A couple sets. So just keep an eye on inks make sure you have ink in there. It s not fill it up a little bit more solution alright after printing those 10 sheets. Our printer is asking to replace the black color.
So what we re going to do take it out and restart the printer. The solution is why because it s not recognizing the color properly and those things actually not full never full they re always half full so i might ve even overdid. It regarding pulling it in or it s slow so we re going to check it out and pop that as you can see my black. I think levels just above half so we re gonna dump a little just to make it half and we re going to actually all eggs just to make sure when the now is we re gonna seat every single cartridge so so well think that it s a brand new inks installed.
When you set it all the eggs. Tell us that we put in the inks and then do our preparation. It s the first time does a work try to turn off the printer and turn it back on sushi helps so we printed about 30 pages. Right now.
And so we inverted a soft as diagnostic page. So those are that s to see we still see streaks that means. It s still still need a little work. See the color lighter just because our solution is in there.
But walking. I ve had to do this at least probably once or twice. So this is definitely one method to waste ink and paper. However our alternative option.
It would be just to use the printhead cleaning on the printer. The problem with that is if you really use it too much the the spot were holds all the ink leftover or from cleaning. The printhead may split off spill over and actually just dump a lot of ink on your desk. And that s why i don t want to do it that s an option you can try it do it a couple times.
But i really would not recommend do it too many times as well spill over outside or inside the printer and as well out on your desk. So keep that in mind so did a print test. And it s showing that we re. 20 laps in our on our yellow ink.
Everything is 99 399. 80. So looks like we didn t use that much kion ink print. Print.
Think. But we definitely need to add a little to the yellow. So we re gonna go ahead open it take out the yellow. You see it s still fairly there s definitely a lot of ink in there still however the average.
What it supposed to be it s supposed to be about ten millimeters in each of the tanks now more. I don t know about it top about 10 millimeters total. So this was low it s about it says. It s a good percent.
So we re going to go ahead and add a little more and we re gonna replace it so we fill that it s about half it to put it back in and give us her air to group that it did look like that it s new ink cartridge installed. However it says need to replace it that because you added too much ink. So but so go ahead should take that at least on your cartridge in cartridge. She did for some reason.
But it s okay alright so we re going to go ahead and actually continue printing just for what to get to add more paper and you know this is going to take a while so you know remember we re gonna have to spend a couple hours just to get it going. But well the results should be great so let s keep on going..
I m going to fill the paper and continue printing sample pages. Okay we just spent the last page. So we printed probably i would say around 70 pages color different types printing. So we don t want to go too far so right now.
We re going to stop and logan is now is actually take out the inks. We re going to empty the solution from it see still has color. So that s why still prints color. We re going to empty the solution.
I do and i m going to actually add a real ink into it now. This is so we can flush the solution out of the printer before we connect the see is in case. You have their actual encourages. This is a good time to use the setup as you want to flush their solution out stowaway.
It doesn t get into your actual ink that you can in future. So. If you have new inks save those if you have used inks purchases use dolls now to which to flush the solution out of it or if fc is s. Just you know don t use it yet you know i just filled those tanks.
Who thinks first empty the solution out and we thought with ink and rather traditional you know five to ten copies. The way it flashes out so this is what we do now i m going to use the color. So i m going to show us. I can do it really quick alright now you want to use the actual color and i m going to put it in eggs.
But another we empty it we want to refill it with actual ink. So we don t want to put it too much remember half of the tanks. What we want to do so super close to it it s a little more and that s it so uh. I m not using any gloves.
But just for your information you probably should otherwise you re gonna be have fingers like me so we re going to do that for every single ink empty the solution from it to trash and refilled with actual ink. Now with that we replaced all the encourages and we fill them with our inks. It s doing its regular preparation so sort of filtering within things and from now. We re going to print.
Probably another five to ten pages color just looking completely flash. It and once we ve done that we re going to put our cas system back in so let s do that right now all right so we re printing our final sets as you can see we get the color back. But we re still in print. Oh quite a few pages.
So you can clear all that it s a solution formed from the printer to being even safer example. You can add more ink as well. If you if you have it as well. So the new cushion is is a worth trying to fix it for one you can break the prop the printer by doing this the way i did it so don t think just because i delay tonight.
It was successful that you re not gonna have any problems. So. This is definitely not the best way to do it i mean hp doesn t recommend that you do in a row. Technically you don t really you can t really fix the clock head on those printers.
They just toss them for scrap and you should get a new one if they say if you send them to for repair. So let s see we spend about 20 bucks on the encourages. Let s say we spend five to ten bucks. And inks just pretty much went through a lot the solution.
I ll call the ammonia that s additional ten bucks. And let s see i printed probably way over 100 drawings. I m enjoying this sheets with in color. I spent over five hours doing so tamar s inquires all the old accessories that i had to buy i really would have to say that is probably not worth fixing or trying to fix the problem with the head.
I would just go out and see perhaps. If yeah somebody has a used one if you want to finish up your hank or even buy a new printer..
Because because it takes so much time so much effort. It s probably cheaper just to go ahead and buy a new printer. But if you like me and you want to try it anyway feel free to do so just be careful you can break a printer doing it this way. I m of course probably overdid it just because my head is definitely clogged a lot.
It s been like that for quite a while i if yours isn t that bad just so you ll have to print that much and be fix out faster and of course remember always print at least once a week that s how the the head gets clogged in the first place is because you weren t printing enough if you leave your printer hanging off two weeks three weeks. That s where the ink actually starts drying out and clogging the head so make sure you print at least once a week or more just to keep the printer freshen. All the ink constantly being replaced. So hopefully you like this video.
Please like or subscribe to my channel. And hopefully. I ll have some more videos for you soon as well thank you alright here are a few tips just in case you run into the issue. Where it says you have ink system failure.
There s couple ways to reset. It and most time it works just be persistent. And you actually have to try this method. A couple times.
I mean i tried it in one time when it failed back in a couple months ago. I think i tried it eight times until it started working again. I will definitely definitely have to do it march of times in order to actually clear the problem the usual a problem. Why it s causing.
It let s see that the air got in it to the death tanks and from the bubble and push it through the ink system second. It could be that the ink level is too high. So. When you have that problem make sure example.
If using a fillable inks that the level is minimal just make sure you know dump the ink. If it s it s now. It s a half or more just leave it on one 1 4. Of the ink.
And you know just toss the rest just so it s just a little bit there it s the case. So when the pepper actually done its going to put back the ink this better have less than more to clear the problem second thing you can do is to reset reset. The printer there s two ways to do it one way is to hold the help button and okay disconnect from power wire holding. It and then we connect it while holding the buttons.
The printer should shut off once it shuts off just turn it back on and should that that s a hard reset and the second option. I m going to show you in a second as soon as the specialist printing. Okay in the second way to reset to our system reset would be hold left key left arrow and set up once you see the screen goes in to enter. Special key book.
A key combo. I m going to press. Ok now it says support. I m going to click on left three times until we get system configuration mode menu okay this is hardware failure status i m going to click ok again it says failures.
That is clear press. Ok to clear. There s clear answer to continue as that we just cancelled out turn off the printer would your power button. And again.
And the it should be clear so those are few things you can try you will have to probably do that you know six seven times in order to clear the fault completely. But it does work eventually you just got to be persistent. And do it a bunch of times hope. You enjoyed this video please rate like and subscribe to my channel thank.
