HP OfficeJet Pro 8024 has suddenly stopped printing in colour

HP OfficeJet Pro 8024

My HP OfficeJet Pro has suddenly stopped printing or copying in colour. None of the printer reports print in colour either. There are just gaps where the colour should be. Printer cartridges have lots of ink left in them. Can't work out what the problem is? Can anyone help please?

@PippaHB, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

This seems like a hardware issue. Let us try these steps:

 

Reset the printer

  1. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  2. Wait at least 60 seconds.
  3. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  4. Turn ON the printer, if it does not automatically turn on.
  5. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you proceed.

Note: HP recommends connecting the printer directly to a wall outlet rather than a surge protector or a power strip.

 

Update the printer firmware

Click here to know different methods of updating printer firmware.

 

Clean the printhead

  1. On the printer control panel, swipe down to open the Dashboard, and then touch the Setup icon .

  2. Swipe up on the display, and then touch Printer Maintenance.

  3. Touch Clean Printhead, and then touch Continue.

  4. If the print quality is unacceptable, touch Clean Again to continue the next level of cleaning. If necessary, repeat these steps for the third cleaning cycle.

    NOTE: If the printhead is badly clogged, it might require another cleaning cycle. If so, wait 30 minutes before you perform all three levels of cleaning again.

Check the ink cartridge vents

Refer to step 6 in this document.

 

Print a Print Quality Diagnostic Page

  1. On the printer control panel, swipe down to open the Dashboard, and then touch the Setup icon .

  2. Swipe up on the display, touch Reports, and then touch Print Quality Report.

Let me know how this goes.
