I had a 1400 series that stopped working. It would go through the motions, but the paper would be blank, even when I put in new ink. So, I bought a new one, this 1510.
On the 1510:
I don't use it that often, so I thought that it might have been that the ink was dry, but when I look at it, there is plenty of wet ink there on the outside; if I touch it to paper it makes a big inkblot. When I first got it, I printed something and there were a couple of thin blank lines, but no big deal. Now (a few months later) it doesn't print. It goes through the motions, but I get a blank paper if I set it to black ink only, and a very faint (like a water mark) print if I set it to high quality grayscale. I searched on the forum and saw to try the 6980 driver, but when I go through my list, I do not have that one there to select from.
I was trying to print a resume for an interview I have today so this is not good! 😞
HP recommends that you use genuine HP ink or toner supplies. HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP or refilled cartridges. If you do not use genuine HP cartridges, the steps in this document might not resolve the issue. To check the authenticity of your cartridges, go to hp.com/go/anticounterfeit.
Step 2: Allow the printer to rest
Sometimes, print quality issues can be resolved during a period of inactivity. Consider waiting for about 30 minutes, and then try the print job again.
If these steps resolved the issue, you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
If the issue persists, continue to the next solution.
Step 3: Check the paper
Follow these guidelines to make sure that the paper is appropriate for the print job. If it is not, reload the printer with an appropriate paper type.
