Hi, I have a hp designjet 510 asking me to remove the heads and replace normal by "setup printheads"


How I can fix this?   I do not have the setup printhead kit

If the tube assembly has ink and no air pockets then take a strip of tape and place on the metal contacts of each printhead that mate with the contacts in the carriage assembly. This should fool the plotter.
