HP Photo Printer Problems
As the name suggests photo printers are used for printing photographs from computer, laptops, mobile phones etc. These are specifically built to scan, store and print photographs from your devices. HP too has launched its photo printer called PhotoSmart printer. These printers are also capable of printing your general documents other than the photos.

Error message “Reset your HP PhotoSmart printer”
This error message is displayed when your printer faces some internal issues and prompts you to fix it. Resetting the printer can resolve many errors and make the printer work just fine. The detailed steps for performing a “soft reset” and “hard reset” are provided on the HP website under support section for this product. Make sure you read every instruction carefully before proceeding to perform any action.
This error message is often displayed when you insert memory card into the printer and the memory card contains corrupted photographs or the photograph format is not supported by your printer. To prevent such situations ensure that you are using a memory card which is supported by HP PhotoSmart and then store photographs in a format which is compatible with the printer. Again you can check the compatibility and printer support criteria from the HP official website.
This is also commonly seen issue with photo printing devices. This means that when you take a print of the photo or a document only one color gets printed on the paper or the colors are not clear. This is often caused by dried and clogged nozzles of the cartridge. Clean the cartridge nozzle using HP printer toolbox or manually clean the cartridge head to fix this issue. Remember to turn off the printer if you are opting for manual clean up.
