Hp Gt5820 deskjet printer is not printing color prints even after ink tank has ink.

I have tried all the troubleshooting steps but still my problem is not resolved. 

I tried reaching HP service center but my warranty is expired so they are not giving qny service also.

Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to the HP support community.


Check the ink delivery system

  1. Make sure the transportation ink valve is in the unlocked position.


    Printing with a locked transportation ink valve can damage the printheads.

  2. Make sure the printer is turned on.

  3. Inspect the position of the blue printhead latch.

    1. Open the exterior door.

    2. Open the printhead access door.

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

    4. Visually inspect the printhead latch position.

      • If the printhead latch is closed, continue to the next step.

    5. Reach inside the printer through the printhead access door, and then manually move the carriage to the right.

    6. Visually inspect the ink delivery tubes.

      • If the tubes are white or ink stained, the printer is not properly primed or out of ink, skip to Replace the printheads.

      • If the tubes are completely filled with dark ink, the printer is properly primed and filled with ink, continue to the next step.
