Printing Problem

Hi Everyone

I have an interesting problem, with my printer it is a Hewlett Packard DeskJet 610c, when printing it will print pages off the internet or a print test page but I cannot get it to print normal documents for example letters.

The Printer just prints out blank pages the inks are brand new after changing them, but still no joy does anyone have any ideas I have also checked the printer properties and cant see that anything is different or needs altering.

Hi all

I have realised after looking back at my test pages there is in fact a problem with my black ink which I think is the problem did people know that printers are chipped which i didn't know mean you can only use the manufacturers and not compatibles ?

Hi scooby43

I see you are still having problems.
Don't know whether your printer needs chipped refills or not but that sounds a possibility.

Maybe someone knows.

You can buy a reprogrammer for the chip

HP 610 printers do not use chipped cartridges.
