Try cleaning the brown dotted circuit of the printer where you fit your cartridge .clean it gently and slowly with moist tissue and wait for a moment till the moistness get completely dried.and also check whether you are changing the proper cartridge which the message is indicating.check the proper number on the cartridge which you replaced. also try changing the both the cartridges sometimes this helps.also check whether the cartridge is inserted properly in the printer sometimes it is fitted loose in the printer so this happens.

thanks.

My HP C5180 All-In-One printer says full ink cartridge is empty


Hi!

There are two ways to make your cartridge work again.

The first one will be basic....turn on the printer...remove the black cartridge from the printer.. using a moisten cloth, clean gently the contact terminal of the cartridge..after letting it air dry for a couple of seconds return the cartridge.. then try printing again..

The second one is to reset the ink cartridge.. how?

1. While your printer is on.. disconnect the usb cable from the back of your printer.
2. Remove the cartridges.
3. Wait until the message "Insert Cartridge" display on the control panel.
4. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.
5. Wait for 60 seconds.
6. Plug the power cord at the back of the printer...If printer does not automatically on..press the "Power" button.
7. Reinsert the cartridge and close any open doors of the printer.
8. If prompted to Calibrate, do so..
9. Reconnect the usb at back of the printer...and try printing again..

After that you can print easily.

I have a printer HP c5180 all in one, only have black ink , not color, i dont want print in color . can I use the printer black and white (not color) only?


You can go into the print properties and set it to print black only, however if any of the color cartridges are empty the printer may not print until you replace whichever cartridge is empty.

Complete the following steps to resolve this issue.
Step one: Check the printin grayscale setting
If the self test page printed in color, the ink cartridgesare okay, and the ink levels are well above empty, the printer software hasprobably been set to print in grayscale. Follow the steps below to check thissetting:
  1. In the software application you are trying to print from, click File, then Print. The Print dialog opens.
  2. Make sure your printer is selected, then click Preferences. The printer Preferences dialog opens.
  3. Select the Color tab, then make sure that Print in grayscale is not selected.
  4. Try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue.
    • If the issue is resolved, you do not need to continue with the rest of the instructions on this page.
    • If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next step.
Step two: Check the inkcartridges
NOTE:- HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HPink.
  1. Check the ink cartridges to determine if they have been refilled. If they have been refilled, try replacing them with genuine HP ink cartridges.
  2. Try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue. If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next step.
Step three: Check inklevels
Replace any empty print cartridges.
  1. Press Setup .

    • Each icon corresponds to the cartridge that is the color of the icon. The icons are also in the same order, from left to right, as the cartridges in the printer.
    • If an icon is empty, the corresponding cartridge may need to be replaced soon.
    • The ink levels in non-HP, refilled, and remanufactured cartridges cannot be read by the printer. Instead of an icon, a question mark is displayed for these cartridges. HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. Printer service or repairs required as a result of printer failure or damage attributable to the use of non-HP ink will not be covered under warranty.
  1. Try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue. If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.

How can I print Black only?


Hi

HP Inkjet printers work only if both the cartridges have ink unlike HP Laserjet printers.
If you want the printer to print only in black, Follow the steps

Start --->Control panel -- >Printers and faxes ---->Right click on the printer icon (HP c5100) select printing preferences.
Under printing prefences there u will see an option to print with black or print in gray scale.

Note:HP Inkjet printers like Photosmart C5180 will work only both the cartridges have ink.

Thanks

How to continue printing is one color runs out?


Seriously...I've read all these reviews saying how the c5180 is so great, but I've had nothing but problems with it from day one, and have shelled out so much money fixing it.  Now I'm getting an 'ink expiration near' error, which is completely preventing me from doing anything.  I have a paper due tomorrow, and apparently I can't print it out now, a %$#@ing black and white document...bc MAGENTA is almost expired.  Can someone please tell me a way to override this so I can print my paper? >.>
