HP Deskjet F335 All-in-One Pen failure Print Cartridge Has a Problem

[ Edited ]

Help please! We put a new HP Tri-Color Print Cartridge (22) into our HP Deskjet F335 All-in-One and received the following message. The Following Print Cartridges Has a Problem: Tri-color. We had bought a double pack so we tried the other new cartridge and still had the same error. I cleaned the contacts with alcohol and still got the same message.


Finally I opened up a brand new HP Deskjet F335 All-in-One printer that we had bought as a back up printer. We received the same message from the new printer from both of these ink cartridges. Then we put a used Tri-Color cartridge into the new printer and received the same message. I've run the HP Print Diagnostic Utility 4.1 and it tells me I have a Pen failure. At first I thought the two new cartridges were bad but I don't think they are since the old cartridge gave the same error. Can these printers be reset back to their original factory settings? I have spent hours researching and following instructions to to try to fix the issue. Many thanks in advance to whomever can help me resolve this issue. Smiley Surprised)

Thank God! It is finally running. Even though I had clicked on the HP icon to check for important software and driver updates it kept telling me that it was up to date. I had even un-installed and re-installed the software that came with the printer.


This time I went to HP Support page and found my printer. Then I clicked on "Software and Driver Downloads" and then downloaded two drivers that were listed. I'm happy to announce that I'm back up and printing.
