Question about HP Photosmart C4180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Colour printer only prints in black and white

I have an HP Photosmart C4180 all in one and it used to always print photos in colour but now it only prints in black and white.
Recently I had a paper jam and I had to unplug the printer and re-plug due to non response, but since then I have not been able to print colour photos even though my printing preferences is set to colour.
Thank you for your help.

It prints in black only and the tri-colour cartridge is 1/2 full


The color print head nozzles maybe blocked.

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

My HP Photosmart C6380 all in One is now printing colour and black and white photos with a green/blue colour in dark/black areas of the photo replacing what should be black or gray. It never used to do...


To see which color is having an issue, go to printer control panel and select "settings" > Tools> Print report> Print Quality report. When the page prints out, you will see which color is the problem. After you have figured that out, make sure the problem is not with the cartridge.
If you see lines or missing colors, clean the printhead by removing it from printer(open cover, lift gray latch on the right side of the cartridges, remove cartridges and the printhead will easily slip out by pulling up)
then soak the printhead in half inch deep amount of window cleaning solution. Preferably warm. Let soak at least 3 hours. Dry out the printhead and wipe rear conacts from moisture and dirt. Reinstall into printer and see the results.

Failure to print from computer in colour


I have a similiar issue that just started happening recently - the printer shows FULL inks but the PC thinks it has empty inks. I tried the * #, 123 reset hardware failures, but that didnt help. Printer run self diagnostics says all is fine....

I am using USB connections - and this has been fine for years, until now. Maybe a microsoft patch issue?

Lines in photo


Hi

This could be either a leak from colour cartridge or could be because there is still some blue ink in the printer from the last colour item printed?

Vertical and horizontal lines when printing photos - HP Photosmar


Hi,
it sounds as if you may have the picture quality set to draft, its worth a check, especially if printing is ok. Does it print colour writing well too or just black, one of the colour inks may have a block or be low, go into printer settings menu and check what print quality its set for.

Printing photos


its ok I solved it! I didn't realise that all the photo cartridge does is gloss over the colour picture produced by the colour cartridge. I simply had to replace the colour cartridge which had run out, so now its all working perfectly!!

Print Color


You probably need to check a few things:
a) What ink cartridges have you installed? You can get a cartridge that's just grey ink.
b) What printer settings have you set up on your PC? If you're only printing in greyscale, this could be the problem. You need to set it to colour printing.
