Printer Failure Officejet 6600

Product name: HP Officejet 6600 e-All-in-One Printer - H711g
Model name: CZ155A

Operating system:  N/A, printing wirelessly from iPad


This printer worked great for the first month, now it only reports:


Printer Failure

There is a problem with the printer or ink system.  Turn printer off, then on.  If problem persists, contact HP.


I also unplugged it and tried again.  Nothing changes, it won't do anything.


It is still under warranty.  What should I do?

Re: Printer Failure Officejet 6600

I finally managed to fix this problem!


If you have your 4 original Setup Cartridges, put those in and let the printer go through its long, automated setup process. Then once you are back to the main menu, put the new cartridges back in (I swapped mine in one by one. Closing the cover each time and letting the printer recognize one new cartridge at a time).


This is what worked for me! Hope that helps!
