Just installed new ink cartridge. Printer printing blank pages.

HP Photosmart 6510

I have installed a new ink cartridge (yes I removed the tape), but my printer prints blank pages. I have cleaned the head, reset the printer, updated, turned on and off. Still won’t work.

Welcome to HP support community.

 

Make sure that the cartridges are properly vented and seated correctly

  1. Press the Power button to turn on the printer, if it is not already turned on. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before continuing.

  2. Open the cartridge access door. The carriage moves to the access area.

  3. Press the tab on the front of the cartridge inward to release it, and then pull up on the cartridge to remove it from the slot.

  4. Examine the vent area on each cartridge, above the HP logo on the top of the cartridge.

  5. If the cartridge still has the orange pull-tab attached, pull to remove it.

  6. If the vent is clogged, use a straight pin to gently remove excess adhesive from the vent.

    3. Unclogged vent

  7. With the nozzle and contacts facing down, slide the cartridge into its slot. Press down on the cartridge until it clicks into place.

    NOTE: 

    Make sure that each cartridge is installed in the correct slot. Match the shape of the icon and the color of the cartridge with the slot that has the same shaped icon and color.

  8. Repeat these steps to inspect the vents on each of the cartridges.

  9. Make sure that each cartridge is firmly in place in its slot. Run your finger along the top of the cartridges to feel for any that are protruding, and if any are, press down firmly until each cartridge snaps into place.

  10. Close the cartridge access door.
