Photosmart C8180 does not print color photos sometimes partial pages, mostly blank.

[ Edited ]

Printer was working fine, then had trouble, determined it was the ink. Bought all new Genuine HP cartridges  directly from HP, worked for a while till I put in new paper(Genuine HP Advanced), that's when it really started messing up. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling driver, several times,  no help.

 

The problem appears to be in the printer itself because I tried to print directly from a disc inserted into the disc drive on the printer, it  kicked out a blank 4x6 photo page. Someone please help, this has been a great printer, I would like to keep it going.

It's normally a clogged printhead nozzel or something.  This document should work you through it.  If that doesn't work, you will need to look into a replacement.

I have tried  all of the  "PRINTED SOLUTIONS" to no avail. I have done all the "SERVICE PRINTER' steps and they all check out fine. The printer will print out documents and  all the test pages, including color,  just fine.

 

They original problem still exists, incorrect photo printing.

The Printer is unrestoreable. Thanks to Shane R for a lot of time and effort trying to find a solution.
