Running out of ink

If your printer runs out of ink, obviously the pages will come out blank when you attempt to print out what you need. Most of your HP printers will already have some kind of indicator to let you know that you are running slot. Solution: The solution is a no-brainer. Replace the ink cartridges.

Clean the print head, if necessary. Make sure the paper size, orientation, and layout settings in your printer software are correct. Make sure your document does not contain blank pages. If your printer software has a Preview option, you can check for blank pages before you print and remove them, if necessary.
Check if the paper that you`re using matches the paper type in your printer setting. Check if the printer is on a flat and stable surface. Most printer models won`t work if it`s tilted in an angle. Clean the print head in case of clogged nozzles.
This means the printer is starved of the data it needs to keep printing. Some printers will pause and keep trying, for a little while, but many will just give up at this point and spit out your half printed page. So – the moral of the story is really to always use a wired connection if at all possible.
Reasons why your HP printer has ink but won`t print

This may seem obvious, but it sometimes happens: first make sure your paper tray has paper in it. Misalignment, clogged printheads, faulty data communication or insufficient ink levels can also be sources of the problem.

The printer could be dirty. Solution: Arrange to have your printer cleaned. The toner cartridge may be nearly empty. Solution: Replace the toner cartridge.
Make sure your printer is securely connected to your PC. The ink isn`t running out and the ink cartridges are not clogged. There`s enough paper in the paper tray. Restart your printer and give it a refersh, it could be just a glitch.
If the ink level is sufficient, but the printer still does not print black ink, you may need to run a cleaning cycle. A cleaning cycle is a process that cleans the printer heads and removes any clogged or dried ink.
The paper might not be engaged with the feed rollers. The paper-width guide is pressed against the paper stack too tightly. The paper tray is not completely inserted into the product. The paper settings in the print driver do not match the paper loaded in the paper tray.
