Question about HP Printers & Copiers

2 Answers

I just changed the black only cartridge in my HP Color LaserJet CP1518ni printer and now it not only sounds like a dying cow but it will only print out black sheets. I pulled the little orange tabs and restarted. I even ran the trouble shooting computer programs but it is still printing in all black.

    I reinstall the printer driver and checked the cartridge as well. Neither solved the problem. The screeching problem makes it sound like there is a problem with the new black cartridge, even though I ordered it direct from HP. It is coated with black toner powder, which is different than my old cartridge.

ISSUE: The customer may experience a missing color plane if the toner cartridge door is opened partially and then closed. This may occur anytime the toner cartridge door is not opened fully and then closed. SOLUTION: Open the toner cartridge door completely. Pull the toner cartridge tray so it extends until it stops. Verify the cartridges are in the tray correctly, adjust if necessary. Close the toner tray and toner door and try reprinting the job. If one or more of the colors is still missing verify that the cartridge is not empty.CAUSE: The toner cartridge tray will disengage the toner drive mechanism when the front door is partially opened. In some circumstances the toner drive mechanism will not reengage when the door is closed. The result is one or more color planes will not form an image during the printing phase.

    When you print black and white pics, does it print whole thing as black or the colors inverted or just a whole blank black sheet ?


    I still feel you should try re-installing the printer driver.

  • Karthik P Sep 22, 2008

    Alright,
    Try cleaning the catridge head.
    May be the micro pumps could not pump out the ink properly ...


    Hope this works,


    Cheers,

    If the problem persists, try contacting HP.
    They should replace it for free.




    cheers,

My boss want to replace the black ink cartridge for one that prints color. Can this be done with the HP 12-a cartridges? HP Laser jet 1022


Unfortunately laser printers don't work this way. The laserjet 1022 was designed for black and white prints only. In order to do color printing with a laser printer you will need to purchase one that is designed to print in color. The laser printers work a bit differently than the inkjets - the laser printers have 4 toner cartridges, one each for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black, that work together to print a full color page. With the old inkjets you could just replace a black cartridge with a color one.

So, short answer: Sorry but no you can't make a laserjet 1022 print in color. :)

I would recommend looking at an entry level color laser printer from hp, such as the CP2025 (http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF25a/18972-18972-3328060-15077-236268-3673580.html) if you are looking into purchasing a color laserjet.

Hope this helps

My hp Color Laserjet 3550 Printer wont print black when it is out of color ink


The 3550 won't print in any color if any of the colors are out. You'll have to replace the color ink that's empty to get it to print.

In the future, if you're just printing black and white, you can select "Print in Grayscale" from the print properties to just use the black ink cartridge, which will help the color cartridges to last longer.

Still using color toner when printing in black


Check the black toner cartridge. Most printers that use multiple cartridges will use the black cartridge as long as it has toner in it but will then start using the color toner to do the black/grayscale when the black cartridge is empty.

I haven't the manual for this printer color laserJet 2600n series,


document.tlSearch.tx.value=unescape("") s.gif s.gif
HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer - Installing Print Cartridges When a print cartridge approaches the end of useful life, the control panel displays a message recommending that to order a replacement. The printer can continue to print using the current print cartridge until the control panel displays a message instructing to replace the cartridge. The printer uses four colors and has a different print cartridge for each color: black (K), cyan (C), magenta (M), and yellow (Y). Replace a print cartridge when the printer control panel displays one of the following messages: Replace yellow cartridge, Replace magenta cartridge, Replace cyan cartridge, Replace black cartridge. The control panel display also indicates the color that should be replaced (unless a genuine HP cartridge is not currently installed). Change the print cartridge
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Open the front door. c00315320.gif CAUTION: Do not place anything on the transfer belt (ETB), which is located on the inside of the front door.
  3. Remove the used print cartridge from the printer. c00315321.gif
  4. Remove the new print cartridge from the bag. Place the used print cartridge in the bag for recycling. c00315322.gif
  5. Grasp both sides of the print cartridge by the blue handles and distribute the toner by gently rocking the print cartridge from front to back. CAUTION: Do not touch the shutter or the surface of the roller. c00315323.gif
  6. Remove the orange shipping locks and the orange shipping tape from the new print cartridge. Discard the shipping tape and shipping locks according to local regulations. c00315324.gif
  7. Align the print cartridge with the tracks inside the printer, and using the handles, insert the print cartridge until it is firmly seated. c00315325.gif
  8. Firmly close the front door. c00315326.gif
  9. Turn on the printer. After a short time, the control panel should display Ready.
    NOTE: If a cartridge is in the wrong slot or is the wrong type for the printer, the control panel will display one of the following messages: Incorrect yellow, Incorrect magenta, Incorrect cyan, Incorrect black.
  10. Installation is complete. Place the used print cartridge in the box in which the new cartridge arrived. See the enclosed recycling guide for recycling instructions.
  11. If a non-HP print cartridge is in the printer, check the printer control panel for further instructions.
    NOTE: When replacing or changing a black print cartridge, a cleaning page will automatically print. This helps prevent speckles on the front or back of printed documents. A cleaning page can also be generated using the control panel or the HP Toolbox.

Printing black on the entire page.


Have you tried to change the print cartridge as black print is usually down to the print cartridge faulty. The other possibility is that the cartridge contacts are dirty or broken.

Hope this helps
