HP Recommended

My printer will not print with new yellow or magenta cartridges. The cartridges do print on another Hp55520.!!!

Although my printer is out of warranty it has hardly been used. Any advice would be appreciated

Welcome to the HP Forums. I would be happy to help you with your HP Photosmart 5520 printer. I understand that your printer is not printing on yellow and magenta and you have already done some preliminary troubleshooting. 

 

Don't worry though as I have a few steps to determine the issue and find a solution as well,

  • Check the paper.
  • Check the print settings.
  •  Make sure the ink cartridges are properly vented and correctly seated.
  • Clean the printhead on both printers.
  • Align both the Printers.

Click here and refer the document to perform above steps.

 

Let me know if that works.

Cheers.

Thanks for the reply.

I appreciate your time and patience.

 

Yes it seems to be a hardware issue.

I request you to contact HP Phone support for further assistance on this.

 

Cheers.
