Hi de Frescheville,

I'd be happy to help you with your Photosmart D6100. I suggest using the following document to troubleshoot the cartridges:

I hope this helps.
I work on behalf of HP.

Photo black ink runs out b4 black on HP Photosmart C6380 printer


The black ink cartridge is larger than the photo black cartridge and black is used in photos to make the darker colors. Black text takes much less ink per page.

My printer screen says


The ink is contained in a cartridge.

Note that "backup" printing mode mixes colours, to produce "black", because the "black" ink-cartridge has failed.

So, replace the BLACK ink-cartridge.

HP Photosmart D6160 - says ink is empty when it isn't


I have had this problem of receiving an error message saying that the yellow cartridge is empty on my Photosmart D6160 when it was not empty. Strangely the use of the 'Black Only' button produced a COLOUR image, including yellow!
I seem to have cured this problem by:
1) removing the printer in the control panel
2) switching off the printer and unplugging it from the computer
3) replugging the printer and switching it on.
4) watching the computer as it automatically reloaded the printer driver.

Note: The operating system I am using is WINDOWS 7. The printer was working fine with this OS before the above incident.

Also you can check the ink levels/colours by pressing continuously on the printer's power button, pressing the resume button (downward arrow) once and then releasing the power button. The printer then prints out a test/diagnostic page giving the ink status.

How can I print Black only?


Hi

HP Inkjet printers work only if both the cartridges have ink unlike HP Laserjet printers.
If you want the printer to print only in black, Follow the steps

Start --->Control panel -- >Printers and faxes ---->Right click on the printer icon (HP c5100) select printing preferences.
Under printing prefences there u will see an option to print with black or print in gray scale.

Note:HP Inkjet printers like Photosmart C5180 will work only both the cartridges have ink.

Thanks
Riz

I have an HP Photosmart Printer D6160 which I have been using very successfully. It suddenly will not print black but all colours are OK. It shows black cartridge is half full. Have cleaned heads,...


sometimes the pipes get clogged and you might have to do a clean repeatedly i.e. 5 or 6 times, to get the ink flowing again. the only probelm with this is that it is very heavy on ink usage for the other cartridges as well! Alternatively the printer might be faulty so if it is in warranty ring HPs suport line and get it swapped.
