HP Smart Tank Printers - Printhead errors

After you install the printheads, the printer does not prime and a Printheads missing error message displays on the printer software or HP Smart app of your HP Smart Tank 670, 720, 750, 790, 6000, 7000, 7300, or 7600 series printer. Depending on your printer, one of the following might also display.

  • Printers with touchscreens: A Printhead Problem message displays.

  • Printers without touchscreens: The Attention light and one or both Printhead icons blink.

Determine which printhead caused the error

Look at the printer display (touchscreen printers) or control panel (without touchscreen printers) to determine which printhead caused the error.

  • If the Printhead Problem error display indicates that the Tri-color printhead is not communicating or the Attention light and Tri-color printhead icon blink, the Tri-color printhead caused the error.
