Re: HP 6830 Officejet won't print or blend blue ink

my hp officejet pro 6830 has stopped printing with blue ink.  I have performed all of the suggestions that I have found at the hp website but nothing helps.  i am a low volume printer so it is not the face that i wore it out.  any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

@4fluffs

 

Welcome to HP forums, I see that your printer is not printing in blue color.

I am eager to assist you.

 

Did you check the ink levels of the cartridges?

Did you make sure the cartridges are properly vented and seated correctly

If not, refer this HP document for more troubleshooting steps:- Click here 

 

If you have done all the troubleshooting steps, still the issue persists

I put in new cartridges (all of them including black) because I thought that the blue might have dried out. I cleaned the print head, aligned the print head, printed a diagnostic page, etc. and it still does not print or blend the blue.

Thanks for your reply. I truly appreciate your patience and efforts.

 

As @sandytechy20 is out of the office today, I'm replying to you. 

 

I understand that all are new ink cartridges. In case you have an alternate blue (cyan) ink cartridge then you may try to use it and check if the blue color prints well.

 

In case you do not have a blue ink cartridge or if the issue still persists after installed a replacement blue ink cartridge, then it could be because of a defective printhead. In such a case please refer to my private message suggesting the next course of  action. 

 

I genuinely hope the issue gets resolved without hassles and the unit works great. Let me know how it goes.

 

Cheers! 🙂
