There are few things that can cause blockages, the most common is having the printer set idle for over a long period of time. If it is left plugged in, it will clean itself but without power the ink will dry out inside the head, depending on weather conditions.

Old and poor quality Ink can also cause blockages , particularly the black as it contains powered graphite that settles over time.

Finally, the microelectronics in the head can burn out. Printheads don’t last forever, and the electronics can’t be repaired, so the best you can do is to try to clean the blockage manually or replace it if it still doesn’t work.

  1. Problem with printerhead error report, push OK to get back to menu. Did everything mentioned here and got new printerhead after nothing worked. Still stopped working after four pages and gave error report. Next printer, Epson and getting a $50 off of it for this dead printer as tradein at Best Buy!

  2. My 6830 printer suddenly developed a printhead problem when I replaced a yellow ink cartridge ( I always use genuine hp colours). The self cleaning doesnt work and manual cleaning has also failed.Having changed all colours recently I’m now left with all 4 cartridges plus newly purchased spares which are now absolutely useless and they are not exactly cheap.I think I should be refunded for all these now useless cartridges.

  3. I have Hp officejet Pro 6830, I try to clean the printerhead in Printer maniteance and its not ever working. I took out the printerhead and clean it with Isopropyl twice and its still isn’t working

  4. We bought new black ink cartridge. Printed fine for a while and then got the printhead error message. There is still plenty of black ink in the cartridge and there is still ink in the color cartridges. Error only appeared for the black ink cartridge. Not sure if putting in another new 924XL cartridge will help.

  5. I have a HP Officejet Pro 6830, that keeps telling me there is a problem with the printer head, the self clean doesn’t even want to work any more. You mention to replace the printer head, we had a look at it and i understand with this printer the printer head cannot be changed. Basically it has to be thrown away and a new one purchased. This is not acceptable, the printer is not even 4 years old. Please advise

  6. I have the same printer with the same error i have tried to clean the printhead but i see there’s nothing done by the printer and the problem remains same

    1. Hello Badar Munir

      If your printer showing the Printhead problem, So for resolving this issue you should remove, clean and then reinstall the printhead. But after the clean your printhead, error still persist then replace the printhead. But wait until you have a new printhead assembly available before you remove the cartridge because HP recommend that you do not leave the cartridge outside the printer longer than 30 minutes. This could damage both printer and cartridge.

  7. HP 6830 Problem With Printhead message pops up when i try to print and printhead cleaning does not help. I have run all the test available in the HP printer utility software and checked other options too. I can see that i still have 40% of the color ink cartridge so Ink cartridge replacement is the last option that i want to keep.

  8. I have the same printer with the same hp officejet pro 6830 problem with printhead. I did three nozzles check and the printer starting printing but it was not clear. I removed the ink cartridge and clean the printhead with a dry cloth and now its printing fine now. Thanks

  9. The problem that i am facing is quite different but relatable. The problem with printhead hp 6830 is not just a printhead issue but the printing consistency. The printer prints the first few pages without any problem but after the 4th or 5th page, there are white lines visible in the text, like the printhead has completely skipped a line while printing. The nozzle check helps but it cost me a lot of ink and i have to do that after every 5th page printing. The ink cartridge was installed few months back and it has still got about 80% ink left. Is there any other method i can do or should i contact for a cartridge replacement?
