Changing ink cartridges for 8610 'faulty or missing printhead' error

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Have the 'faulty printhead' error issue on my 8610.  Have done everything HP suggests to resolve except for replacing the ink cartridges.  So that is the next step?

Changing ink cartridges for 8610 'faulty or missing printhead' error

@JV8610

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community.

 

If you've tried all the steps from here: https://support.hp.com/in-en/product/hp-officejet-pro-8610-e-all-in-one-printer-series/5367603/docum..., then please replace the ink cartridges and check that is if you've spare ink cartridges.

 

Else I recommend you to contact the HP Support Team regarding this as this could be a hardware issue.

Changing ink cartridges for 8610 'faulty or missing printhead' error

FYI, I did also call the HP support team.  They really could not isolate it to anything specific, so I'm in limbo.  They told me I should probably buy a new printer. 

 

Instant Ink people will not work with me to determine for sure there is not an ink cartridge issue.  They basically told me I'm on my own as far as they are concerned.  So I'm to throw out a not so old printer when we have not ruled out ink cartridges.

 

I do have case numbers from both groups.

I understand your concern. However, this is not an issue with the ink cartridges. As the error indicates, it is the printhead that has gone bad.

Replacing the ink cartridges will not help.

 

If the printer is out of warranty, I suggest you upgrade the printer. The printheads are as costly as a brand new printer. You may visit Hp Store to check the available printers.

 

Keep me posted for any other assistance.
