Welcome to HP support community.

 

Clean the ink cartridges

  1. Load the printer with plain white paper.

  2. On the printer control panel, swipe left on the display, and then touch Setup .

Manually clean the area around the ink nozzles

  1. Gather the following materials:

    • A clean, lint-free cloth or a clean, dry cotton swab

    • Distilled or bottled water

         CAUTION: 

      Do not use tap water because it might contain contaminants that can damage the printhead.

  2. Gently grasp the handles on either side of the printer, and then raise the ink cartridge access door until it locks into place.

    The carriage moves to the center of the printer.

  3. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue.

  4. Lift up the lid on the ink cartridge slot, and then pull up on the ink cartridge to remove it from the slot.

  7. Clean the face and edges around the ink nozzle with the cloth or swab.

    Do not clean the ink nozzle plate.

    NOTE: 

    Install the color ink cartridge on the left and the black ink cartridge on the right.

We have cleaned the ink cartridges manually as directed in the last suggestion, but with no success. We have also cleaned and aligned the cartridges using the tool icons.  The alignment completed and a test page printed successfully through that process.  However, we still are unable to print a document from our devices or copy a document.  The printer still produces a blank page.  Help please ???
