Hp Photosmart Ink System Failure


Hp photosmart 8250. Upon replacing the cartridge the screen said "ink system failure" & won't work. Tech couldn't fix. The tech and i did all the "usual" things to fix the printer but to no avail. I did use a hp compatible ink, same brand as i'd used before without trouble. I replaced it promptly with hp product. They gave me an error code of oxc18a0001

Hp Photosmart Printer Cartridge Failure

I have a black hp photosmart all-in-one printer. I had it since september of last year and barley used it since i still got another working printer.

System Failure, Monitor Does Not Show Anything

I returned from vacation. Turned computer on, fans came on, green light came on, i could hear the hard drive spin up and sound normal, but that's it. No beep, no yellow light, the monitor doesn't think anything is running, the keyboard is dead, num lock won't illuminate, optical mouse is out. Can anyone give me an idea? I'm not very computer literate ( as i'm sure you're aware after reading the earlier part of my post) the computer is a 3 year old hp.

Hp Photosmart C3180 Check Ink Error

Check ink error on hp photosmart c3180 all-in-one. A few months ago i installed new color and black ink cartridges on the printer and when tested everything seemed to work fine. For the past few weeks, every time i turn on the printer the "check printer cartridge" light comes on and i get a message on my computer saying there is a problem with the color ink cartridge. I'm pretty sure it's the right kind-it's a hp tri-color print cartridge with a green top and triangle logo matching the color and shape where you install the cartridge. I've tried taking it out and put it back in and turning the printer off and on numerous times but it doesn't work. I've also tried just taking it out and attempting to only use black ink but it won't print. Any suggestions for fixing this?

Hp Photosmart 3210xi Expired Ink Reset Dates

Continuous Ink System Hp Printers

Does continuous ink system works on hp printers?

Answer:-
Which model, exactly? Most printers (including hp's) have little 'chips' buried in the ink cartridges, the printer 'marks' the cart. Every time it's used and when it thinks the ink is low it refuses to print. Most (but not all) printers have 'service codes' that can be entered to over-come this refusal to print. Needless to say, you won't find these codes in your printers manual or on the manufacturers web site. I suggest you focus on those printer models where a continuous ink system already exists.

Disk Boot Failure. Insert System Disk And Press Enter

Just built my first pc and configured the bios etc and get the following message:

Boot from atapi cd-rom
Disk boot failure. Insert system disk and press enter. I think this means that i have to insert a boot disk for the cd-rom drive into the floppy disk drive, to install the drivers for it. Can someone confirm this? Also my cd drive is a philips 52x32x52 cd-rw which came with no floppy disks for installation at all, so i am not sure how i can setup the cd drive without an operating system etc.

Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk And Press Enter

I'm just usng my computer as a normal computer user would use one's computer. Surfing the web, instant messaging programs and the like, then my main harddrive makes a low click sound, then a slightly higher click sound after about half a second, then windows stops responding, then less than a second after my system achieves full lockup. So i'm like, ok, that's weird, and i reboot. I boot into bios and make sure it's not set to turn off the harddrives for any reason, and when i see that it isn't and there are no other wonky settings, i boot windows (xp pro sp2 .net) into safemode and just to make sure, start a virus scan, while that's working i look and make sure drive indexing is turned off (it isnf't on the main drive, so i turn it off) and that power save things are set to always on, and that's all ok, so while i'm waiting for the virus scan to finish, it does the click thing again, locks up, so i'm like *** and i reboot again, this time it gets to the ascii loading bar before the animated startup screen before the login prompt, and it does the click thing and stops, so i reboot again, and this time it gets to "verifying dmi pool data. " After detecting the drives and whatnot, does the click thing and stops right there, then after a minute or so i see "disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter". So i sit there getting madder by the second and press enter, then it gives me a blank screen and that message again, and that's where it sits right now as i type this (but once i post i'll turn it off)

So i was running a virus scan, avg free edition, and it scanned the registry and the mbr for viruses and didn't find any, so i dunno, this either is a virus that i don't have a definition for, or some random progressive hardware failure, or my computer decided to crap out on me randomly.

I've searched through all the documentation that came with everything, the net, and some books, nothing i try works. Can anybody help please?

Tesco Ink Cartridge Won't Work With Hp Photosmart C3180

Why won't the tesco re-manufactured printer ink cartridge i just bought work in my hp photosmart c3180? My printer ran out of ink so i went to tesco and bought one of their cheaper 're manufactured' cartridges. I came home and put it in, the printer's error light turns on and it refuses to print anything when the new cartridge is in. I really could do without this considering i'm preparing for an important interview! Does anyone have any idea why this is happening or how i could fix it?

Intermittent Boot Failure

The problem is intermittently the system powers up but fails to even attempt to boot - no bios beeps, and bios and vid. Bios screens not displayed. Drives spin up ok. Have tried different case and psu (in fact system is currently in borrowed case). The system only ever fails to boot if the system is cold-started - the system warm-reboots ok. Tried different ram, had m/b replaced once, new m/b been returned to dealer where they (supposedly) found no problems when tested with other kit and with my psu, but system not been professionaly tested as a whole. Have also tried different graphics card, removing modem and sound card, running system from hdd only, but still having problems. All connectors are firmly seated. There are no config options in bios or jumpers for ram and the cpu is set up correctly and automatically. Have used 375 and 300w psus with system (300w seemed better then system started playing up again)
Nvidia geforce4 mx440 agp8x graphics card (8x is supported by m/b), and have also tried geforce2 4x. The os may be irrelevant, but i've tried winxppro, win2000, winnt4, mandrake linux 9 and a linux distro that boots from cd (knoppix). All drivers installed ok. Won't even bother with win9x/me because i hate it.

Random Power Failure

Lately, my pc has been randomly shutting off. I thought it might be a software issue, so i went to reformat my hd when it powered off. Here i am with a box w/ no os that keeps shutting off every 5 minutes. Every other computer in my house works fine, so it isn't an electricity issue. I also replaced the power supply, which cost me $60. What else could possible be causing theis odd phenomenon, because i would like my pc back.

Bios Flash Failure

This acer aspire m5100 desktop was having freezing issues, so i decided to update the bios to see if that would fix things. The flash was going well, until the very end where the status bar showed red, indicating failure to write at those sections. The computer rebooted and failed to post. Fans spin and everything, but nothing shows up on the monitor and no beeping from the motherboard. What do you guys think? Game over? Or is there some way to revive the computer?

Bsod - Hdd Failure

I'm running xp pro sp3. I can't remember the last time i've installed new hardware or software. Out of the blue the other day, i noticed foobar2k wasn't reading some of my music off my drive. I checked the files themselves on the 500 gb, and when clicking on the folder received a message to the effect that the files were not accessible. Found that kind of alarming. Then later in the day, experienced my first crash. Just a complete as-is freeze up with stuttering audio that never budged even after about a 30 minute wait-out. Rebooted and chkdsk popped up for the 500 gb drive. I figured as much. However, chkdsk would repeatedly fail to complete. I used another utility, spinrite, directly off a boot disc. Without even being in windows, it still froze about ten minutes into it. At this point i basically could not keep my computer up and running without it soon crashing. I pulled the 500 gb drive to just give up for now. Everything seems like it is running more or less stable with just the raptor. But then, i decided to usb transfer some of my music to the raptor from my blackberry (setup to act as a flash drive). Within about 30 seconds i got my first ever bsod on this machine. 0x0000008e (0xc000001d, 0xbf852646, 0xac387698, 0x00000000)

Win32k.sys - address bf852646 base at bf800000 datestamp 48025f2a

Anyone have any idea what could be going on? Google results for the stop code gave vague suggestions at best. I really don't even know where to begin!

Motherboard Failure Rate

I'm a system builder, and i order most of my parts from newegg. In my i7 systems i have been using the asus p6t deluxe v2 for almost all my builds, but lately i've had over 50% failure rate with the boards. This is over the last month and over 27 units. I'm just wondering if other builders are getting the same failure rate, or if i just got a really bad batch. Its so bad at this point i'm ready to switch to another board, but i'm not sure which one to move to. I need boards that overclock well (4. 0 ghz on the 920 with liquid cooling) and have dual lans. Of course, they have to support at least 2 video cards in full x16 mode also. I'm thinking of trying the asrock supercomputer x58. Any comments or suggestions from people who are having similar problems or have a great mb they've used for a lot of builds will help.

Lcd Monitors Failure Causes

To date, i have got my hands in over 10 malfunction lcd monitors. The cause of deaths for all of them but one were power failure of some sort. I think the lcd company intentionally did this to make people buy new ones. Here are some of the causes:-
1. Premature aging or leaking of electrolytic capacitor: either because of the use of capacitors with lower temperature rating or, for save a buck or two, use capacitors of un-trustful brand(s). Replace the capacitors usually brings the lcd back to life. 2. Dead external power adapter: especially the ones with a strange output voltage which is not easily replaceable. Depends on how the adapter is assembled, you might need to force it open to find the real cause. 3. The most strange ones are the so called "cold soldering": in some larger lcds, i found the solder of several components on the internal power board were loosed! Ideally the power board in a lcd monitor should not have cold soldering, which i think it is a truth when it was built. However, solder may became loose if, after the soldering work of a power board were done, there are external forces applied onto certain components (e.g. The ones connect to a big heat sink which were than stressed by screw onto something else ). In such case, adjust the angle/position of the monitor may put excessive force on the soldering point and eventually break the connection between the legs of the ics and the solder. Re-attach the solder could be your best choice. 4. Unstable relay. Due to the fact that some solid state relays are highly temperature sensitive, the current a relay can output/conduct may decreases dramatically as the temperature increases. The result is intolerable blinking monitor. For emergency, try to ventilate the relay, in the long run replace it with one of the same specification is your best choice. Not recommended, but, if you know what circuit were controlled by that relay and the function of the circuit, you may be able to short circuit it and make it permanently on or remove it to make it permanently off or connect a manual switch to turn it on/off by hand. 5. I never encounter this but lcds with faulty thermal fuse(s) or blown fuse(s) were reported in this forum. Replace the fuse might be a reasonable thing to do. However, if it blown again, you might need to check other places.
