1. Open the HP Deskjet Toolbox. 2. Select Clean the Print Cartridges and follow the on-screen directions. If you have questions about the cleaning feature, point to the Clean the Print Cartridge option and click the right mouse button to display the Whats This? dialog box.

If the print quality improves, but is still not acceptable, repeat the above procedure. If your printouts are still missing lines or dots after cleaning, the ink level may be low in one or both of the print cartridges. If so, a print cartridge may need to be replaced. If ink streaks still appear on your printouts after cleaning, the print cartridges and print cartridge cradle may need to be cleaned manually.
Only clean print cartridges when it is necessary. Unnecessary cleaning wastes ink and shortens the life of the cartridge.
See also: the hp deskjet toolbox manually cleaning print cartridges and the print cradle replacing a print cartridge cleaning the printer case
manually cleaning print cartridges and the print cradle
If the printer is used in a dusty environment, a small amount of debris may accumulate inside the case. This debris can include dust, hair, carpet, or clothing fibers. When it gets on the print cartridges and cradle, it can cause ink streaks and smudges on printed pages. Ink streaking is easily corrected by manually cleaning the cartridges and cradle.
gathering cleaning supplies
You will need the following items to clean the print cartridges and cradle: Distilled, filtered, or bottled water. Tap water contains contaminants that damage print cartridges. Cotton swabs or other soft, lint-free material that will not stick to the cartridges. Scrap paper or a paper towel on which to set the print cartridges while you are working. Be careful not to get ink on your hands or clothing as you clean.
preparing to clean
Remove the print cartridges from the printer before cleaning.
1. Press the Power button to turn on the printer, then raise the top cover.
The print cradle moves to the center of the printer.
2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.
3. Remove the print cartridge(s) and place it on a piece of paper with the
ink nozzle plate facing up. See the illustration in cleaning print cartridges for the location of the ink nozzle plate. Do not leave the cartridges outside the printer for more than 30 minutes.
Caution! Do not touch the print cartridge ink nozzles or copper contacts. Do not remove the copper strips.
cleaning print cartridges
1. Dip the end of a clean cotton swab into the distilled water and remove
any excess water.
2. Clean the face and edges of the print cartridge with the swab, as shown
in the following illustration.
Do not wipe the nozzle plate.
1. nozzle plate 2. clean these areas
3. Inspect the face and edges of the print cartridge for fibers.
Repeat steps 1 and 2 above if fibers are still present.
cleaning the print cradle
If you use the dual-cartridge printing option after printing with only one cartridge, you may need to clean the back plate of the unused compartment. To clean the print cradle:
2. Wipe the compartments back plate.
Repeat this process until no ink residue appears on a clean swab.
3. Wipe the underside of the print cartridge cradle walls.
1. print cartridge cradle 2. right compartment back plate 3. cradle wall
1. Reinsert the print cartridges and close the printers top cover. 2. Reconnect the power cord to the back of the printer, then press the
Power button to turn on the printer.
3. Print a test page from the HP Deskjet Toolbox by selecting Print a Test
4. Repeat the cleaning procedure if smeared ink still appears on the
printouts. See also: aligning print cartridges the hp deskjet toolbox
cleaning the printer case
The printer ejects ink onto paper in a fine mist, and small amounts of ink may be deposited on the printer case over time. Follow these guidelines when cleaning the outside of the printer: Use a soft damp cloth to remove dust, smudges, stains, and spilled ink from the printer case exterior. Use water only. Do not use household cleaners or detergents. Do not lubricate the rod on which the print cartridge cradle moves. It is normal to hear noise as the cradle moves back and forth on the rod when the printer is new. The noise decreases with use.
The printer should be handled and stored in an upright, level position for maximum performance and reliability.
refilling print cartridges
Do not refill HP print cartridges. Refilling print cartridges causes the electronic and mechanical components of the print cartridge to exceed their normal life cycle. It also creates many potential problems, such as: Poor print quality. Non-HP inks can contain elements that clog the cartridge nozzles and cause inconsistent print quality. Non-HP inks can also contain elements that corrode the cartridges electrical components, resulting in poor printouts. Potential damage. Ink from a refilled cartridge can leak onto the electrical components in the printer. This can cause severe printer damage, resulting in downtime and repair costs.
Caution! Damage that results from modifying or refilling HP print cartridges is specifically excluded from HP printers warranty coverage.
To get the best performance from your printer, use only genuine, factory-filled HP print cartridges. See also: print cartridge part numbers
maintaining print cartridges
The following tips will help maintain HP print cartridges and ensure consistent print quality: Keep all print cartridges in their sealed packages until they are needed. Print cartridges should be stored at room temperature (6078 degrees F or 15.626.6 degrees C). If print cartridges have been removed from their sealed packages and not used, store the cartridges in an airtight, plastic container. Store print cartridges with the nozzle-side up. Do not allow anything to touch the nozzles. If the vinyl tape has been removed from the print cartridge, do not attempt to reattach it. Reattaching the tape will damage the print cartridge. Once print cartridges are installed in the printer, leave them in the print cartridge cradle unless they are being manually cleaned. This prevents ink from evaporating or clogging the print cartridges.
Caution! Do not unplug the printer until printing is complete, the print cartridge cradle returns to the home position on the right side of the printer, and the printer has been turned off. Print cartridges dry out if not stored in the home position.
print cartridge part numbers
When replacing print cartridges for your HP Deskjet 845c/825c series printer, buy print cartridges with the following part numbers: Black: HP No. 15 (C6615D Series) Tri-color: HP No. 17 (C6625A Series)
