I know this sounds silly but did you pull the blue tape off of the printer cartridge before you installed it? If you did, try removing it and installing it again. Maybe it was not aligned right. Also, there is a way in the HP printer software to instruct it that you installed a new cartridge - try that too.

I have a 8250 Photosmart printer , it was working fine until 3 days ago, noticed more reddish black where there should be black. Cartridges showing good, waht could be my problem?


Sometimes the cartridge will show "good" when they actually need to be replaced. Try printing a test page, cleaning the ink nozzles, and if the problem persists, replace the ink cartridges.

Why will my HP Photosmart 8250 not print in greyscale when one of the color tanks is empty, there is plenty of black ink.


Greyscale in obtained by using shades of color; meaning that all color (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow) tanks must be full.

HP 8250 Photosmart printer that displays "system ink failure"


Try changing the ink cartridges.

If you installed the "HP Support Toolkit" software from the CD-ROM that came with the printer, use this Toolkit to "run a cleaning cycle".
It can print a "test" page, to show you which colours _do_ work, and which do _not_ work.

If all else fails, then find a qualified printer technician.

My HP Photosmart 8250 is not printing any black ink even when the cartridge is full.


If this is happening after the cartridge was just replaced then make sure you do not have any flags setup in the color settings page in printer preferences that is not letting it use the black ink cartridge. eg. gray scale using color only etc.

Try the Clean cartridge function in the service menu in printer preferences and see if the test page comes ok.
