-I know that this printer is out-dated but I am trying to learn how to repair printers and this is one that I can work on. I have heard of printers needing new printheads and so I want to know what it looks like.
HP Deskjet printers printheads are part of the ink cartridges and the placement area. I would suggest first to replace your ink cartridges and clean the print heads. If this does not fix the problem, then the less expensive fix is to get a new printer. Source(s): Personal experience as a technician.
