I have Instant Ink but the Cyan cartridge is not working properly. It is showing an almost full cartridge but is not printing. I've cleaned the print heads only to get one maybe 2 pages before I have to do that again. This is frustrating. I really need this to work correctly.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I noticed that you performed the printhead cleaning which seemed to resolve it temporarily. It is not uncommon for the printhead to become clogged and need to be cleaned several times to restore print quality.

This appears to be a basic answer for any time someone has an issue with an ink cartridge. It was not BLACK but CYAN that I had an issue with. I understand the specific color doesn't really matter but at least respond appropriately.
It is clear that I will have to continue to clean the print heads until they are empty enough to trigger a replacement from my instant ink account. Honestly, I feel there should be replacements here alread because sometimes it is the ink cartridge that is the issue. HPs attached support says that if I clean the print heads and it is still an issue that it MUST be the printer is just bogus. Print cartridges sometimes are just faulty.
However, I will continue to clean the heads until Instant Ink sends me a new one. It shouldn't be long now anyway. I just won't print anything of worth until that happens.

Thanks for the reply.
I do apologize, I see that I mentioned the wrong cartridge in my response, however, the troubleshooting steps to help resolve the issue is specific to your issue.
As per for documentation the issue points to the built-in printhead, rather than the cartridge, however, if you insist I'm more than willing to send you a replacement.
Please send me private message with your account number or email address for your Instant Ink account. Also, confirm that the
address on your account is correct.
If that doesn't resolve the issue you will need to reach out to HP Phone Support for hardware replacement options.
