My printer displays "There is a problem with the printhead" whenever I try to do anything

HP Recommended
HP Officejet Pro 6830

The error message on the printer control panel says "there is a problem with the printhead".    We are totally unable to print.


Here are the specifics for our printer:



Product Number:  E3E02A


Up until this point it has been a reliable printer.  And it is not heavily used.  We understand that the printer is out of warranty, but for it to be completely unserviceable seems unacceptable.


Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi @MM47


Welcome to the HP Support Community. 


Appreciate you trying the steps. As this is a hardware issue, I'd suggest you Contact HP in your region regarding the service options for your printer.


Have a great day!
