Installed the HP 564 refillable cartridges in a Desckjet 3520. So far no test gives any kind of decent result.

Have cleaned heads many times.

Magenta and yellow seem to work. Black seldom appears and smudged when it does. Cyan occasionally I think.

No test produces coherent results. It's mostly just smudges.

Have removed cartridges and unplugged the machine for several minutes, then plugged in the machine and reinstalled.

All the air vents are definitely open. All cartridges seem to have ink. Magenta getting low now!

Any ideas what to do next?

Thanks in advance!

***********************

After many cleaning cycles, got the other colors to appear consistently, but no black. A youtube video suggested cleaning heads by printing at highest quality only the color of the cartridge you are trying to clean. This has got the black flowing now. It's a mess, but is often legible. That's progress.

Any good tips on cleaning much appreciated. Will update.

the air vents are open? are they open on the ciss? if so this is not what you want. you want the pressure to build up in the system, so if this is the case, install the plugs on the ciss to help it build up.

another thing that could be happening is you need to clean the print head.
To do this you have to take it out and put in on a papertowel, that is not all fuzzy, but mostly solid.
this will soak up the ink and give you a cleaner print. Sometimes it clogs after a lot of printing.
If you let it sit for a minute or 2, then wipe the print sensor with rubbing alcohol, then let it sit some more... rinse and repeat this process until barely any ink flows out onto the paper towel from the sensor, you should be good.

Hello,

You want to make sure that the air vents are exposed if not no ink will be able to pass through the cartridge. We would also recommend deep cleanings that is an option that you are able to find under tools or maintenance.
