Hp officejet 6110 not printing with black ink

I put in a new black cartridge and all was fine for a few pages. Now it won't print in black. The colour cartridge works fine. I tried cleaning the black cartridge and sometimes that lets it print a bit of a page but then nothing.

    Mine is doing the same thing. It works fine if I print a "clean printer" page. Just won't use the black ink for my documints. Wierd.

    Not printing black. How does one check the print head to see if a new one is needed?

  • viperdoug Nov 14, 2008

    I have refilled black cartridges before and everything was fine. But now the printer will not recognize any of my four refilled cartridges. Keeps asking me to press Enter to align cartridge. Test page comes up blank. Tried following instructions included in the NuKote refill kit to reset printer ink level recognition, but to know avail.

    I think I know what is the problem. I refilled my black ink cartridge and it printed for a while, but at some point it just stopped working. The head wouldn't touch the paper. Initially I thought the printer had a problem, but then I discovered that the color cartridge still worked.I had a spare new cartridge so I changed it. Everything worked just fine afterwards. My hypothesis is that HP tracks an identifier in the cartridge and does NOT allow you to refill (I even think they simulate for the cartridge to be failing, but I still have to corroborate this). I think this is outrageous and illegal. Please let other people with the same problem know about it.

Hi lilacky-

Here are some HP support links that might be helpful... and a couple questions to consider.

Q: Is your new cartridge one of these listed below?
"The HP Officejet 6100 series and HP Digital Copier Printer 410 products use the print cartridges listed below:
* HP 56 black print cartridge
* HP 57 tri-color print cartridge
* HP 58 photo cartridge (replaces the HP 56 black print cartridge for six-ink photo printing)" info from: Installing a Print Cartridge
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00004340&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&rule=12548&product=79477 Is your new cartridge a refilled cartridge? Some times those have special challenges. Has your cartridge been sitting a while in the box, maybe in a warm spot? Some times even new cartridges dry out a little. Was your old cartridge low or completely gone? Just as a test, if you put it back in your printer does the old cartridge work? Any printer error messages? Can you print a test page or an alignment page for your black cartridge? These might be too many questions but here are some HP support links with some How To information for getting more answers. Please let me know if any of these are helpful. see also: Slow or No Response from Printer

We bought a new genuine HP 57 color cartridge for the HP 6110 and it's not printing any better than the old genuine one that we thought was empty! We ran test pages with both cartridges and they look great, although the old one looks a bit faded in some spots. The point is: The new color cartridge is printing a real pale dim image instead of the actual colors it should print. WHAT IS CAUSING THIS?

Check the print head you may need a new one.

    What are you talking about? Every HP cartridge contains a new printhead, that's why they cost so much.

Why is my hp officejet 6110 printing everything green


You didn't use the HP printer cartridges? I know they are expensive. but the quality is worth it . I trust not a cheaper ink in a quality printer. You may need to check this HP url
Printer Prints Blank Page or Does Not Print Black or Color Ink for the HP...

When you get to Solution four: Use an automated tool to clean the printhead a helpful tip is to repeat the printhead cleaning up to 4 times .

Replaced ink cartridge 56 and black print text is


Hello,

Remove the cartridge and use a damp paper towel, wipe the bottom of the cartridge several times. Each time you wipe you should be getting black streaks on the paper towel. After manually cleaning the cartridge nozzles you will need to use a new tower and wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge. When this is done reinstall it and run a cleaning and then an alignment procedure from the printer software. You should be printing good again.

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

My hp 6110 doesn't print colour?


When you refill an HP cartridge there is a chip on some that tells the printer how many pages have been printed. This doesn't get reset when it gets refilled in a majority of the refill places. So you will have to ignore the low ink warning on those cartridges or get them done somewhere else like a Cartridge World. If in fact the ink tank is chipped, then they generally can't be refilled without resetting the chip.

Hp officejet 6110 not printing. Can't get out of "align cartridge"mode.


printer problem call up hp at 1-800-474-6836 and ask them for an upgraded printer which you will get at 50-60% cheaper than the original and its a factory new printer.But it is definitly not free.
What you have right now is a hardware problem and the printer is dying so change it fast while this offer is available

Black ink not printing


could be that the nozzles are clogged..
run the print head cleaning utility.. most of the printers have this utility in the driver on your computer, some on the printer itself..

refer to your user's manual for print head cleaning

HP 6110 All in one


Various models do different things so you will have to checkout some stuff. 1. black is green- what it mean is if you take some black ink and wet it to dilute it will sh0w dark green then lighter etc., because black is all colours mixed. In most printers when a 'black' document is printed actually all colours are printing - take a look under a magnifying glass. Some printers however allow for 'black' only printing. But you have to set it up. So check your manual and software or what comes up on the screen. Then come come back
