HP Photosmart C7180 printer with clogged print head.


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required. Also try - Removing the print head, run it under hot water for 2 mins, then let soak for 10 min. then used a can of compressed air to dry thoroughly. It may fix the blocked nozzles.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

The pink and magenta cartridges won't print. We have replaced them again thinking the cartridges were faulty, but still we just get yellow print. HP Photosmart C7280 All-in_One


Sounds like you need to run a printhead cleaning cycle. Dried inks can block nozzles - if they're blocked no amount of cartridge changing will make them work.

Is it possible to convert this printer so it only uses black ink and it operates without the color cartridges?


Hi,

The Photosmart printers work in Thermal Inkjet printing technology. This require all cartridges to be present with ink for printer to work.

You may disable the color printing feature using the printer properties, even though the color cartridge will still be in use.

Only Laser jet printers can work with Black cartridge alone.

Black ink not working


Print out a test print to see what comes out. If the printer is printing the black and colour blocks then the printer should be OK. If not then check the black and colour inks to make sure they are OK and remove each of the cartridges and reinstall them. Then run a full cleaning cycle and reprint the test sheet. Keep doing this until all the inks are printing OK. Then run an alignment test making sure that there is plain white paper in the paper tray and adjust the printer as necessary.
