Black color on photos greyish looking and pixelated

When I print photos of large area of black, such as a man's suit or tux, it turns out more greyish and pixelated-looking than solid black. This also happens on other large areas of dark colors.

Please check the Printer Setting Preference in for Best print.

And also try to work out with a new Cartridge. Let me know if the problem still persists.

Was printing photos all was ok then printer stoped printing black


There are 4 inks, cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. When the black runs out, you are left with sort of a dark purple or brown color.

Printer always uses large black & runs out, cant isolate other


The BK5 is for black text only. The other black ink is used for shades of black/gray together with the three basic colors in printing color photos. You cannot use it to print black text.

Large black ink tank is not being used by the printer.


The little cartridges are pigment for photo printing. The Large black cart is ink for plain paper (usually text) printing. If you select a photo paper in the print setup menu, you will use very little of the ink.
To check the function of the large cart print out a test sheet from the printer maintenance menu. You may need to run a head cleaning to get all the nozzles to work.

HP c3180 color printing problems


I would definitely start by printing a self-test page. With your model press and hold the Cancel button and then press the Start Color Copy button and then release both buttons. When this page comes out you should be able to identify the 4 different color sections...black, cyan, magenta and yellow. If any of these seperate areas are choppy or non-existant, you need to replace your cartridge. Here is a link that will show you examples of what you should/shouldn't see on the self-test report.
