Try cleaning the copper contacts of the cartridge and the inner area of the slot where the cartridge goes in..
Also go to the Printer & Faxes under Control Panel and open the printer's Printing Preferences >> Paper / Quality >> under the color section check if "print in greyscale" is checked..
it shud not be checked...
save changes and try to print

Can I turn off the Color & Print Only Black Ink - On a HP 5650??

To print in black and white you will need to go into your printers properties and look for a Printer Preference and change it.

Best of luck..

Do i have to have both color ink and black ink for the printer to work

Most printers can operate without both inks, black is a must. Use the Printer Properties, then Preferences and choose "Print in Greyscale". Hope this helps

It says that to see the level of ink in the cartridge you go to preferences and get a service menu. My software for HP injet 5650 does not have this option. How do I get it? Bill

It depends. What is your OS? If you have Win7 or Vista, you installed the basic driver in the OS. That does not include the full featured HP Toolbox and HP Solutions Center. You need to check the ink levels by printing a test page or an ink low monitor on the printer (either a light or a LCD screen display). For those OS's that have the full-featured software available, make sure it is installed and running (if you installed the basic driver, uninstall it first).

For information see: and select your OS.

I hope this helps.

After installing re-filled ink cartridges, both color and back & white, the printer message that shows ink level still shows low level ink? How do we resolve?


Try this procedure:
1. Open printer lid so cartridges move to center of carriage.
2. Lift clamp and remove black or color cartridge from the holder.
3. Place cartridge on table with copper contact strip facing you.
4. Carefully place a strip of clear plastic tape over the four contacts on the upper left corner of the cartridge.
5. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position.
6. Open lid and remove cartridge again. Remove tape from left side and place tape over four contacts at upper right corner of cartridge.
7. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position again.
8. Open lid again, remove cartridge, remove tape.
9. Reinstall cartridge and close lid.
Printer will now recalibrate. Once the process is complete the ink level meter should be reading full again.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.
