    I am printing homework and I would like to change from printing in color to printing in grayscale to conserve the ink cartridges in my hp deskjet 1010 printer for more important images that require that they be in color

When you click on "Print" and the window comes up, click on "Preferences".

Click on the "Color" tab. There should be an option to print in color or grayscale. Select "Color".

    Sorry, on the 3845, there is a "Color Options" selection.



    Make sure that "Grayscale" is NOT checked.

My HP Deskjet D1341 has full ink cartridges but won't print. It will print a few words in the middle of a document.


Hi! Your cartridge head must be block by dried ink. So, remove your cartridge and take some soft paper and rub the head until the color stained fully on your paper... thanks

HP Deskjet 3845 printing in blue yellow and green but no red. Print cartridges are new.


Check your cartridges. HP cannot guarantee the quality of remanufactured or refilled cartridges. Also make sure that the expiry date of the color ink is not reached. You should find it written on the cartridge itself.

My printer just prints in very light red


You are out of red ink, OR the print head is clogged (but that usually) produces streaky lines more so than light color.
You can try cleaning the print heads:
  1. Open the 3845 desktop assistant c00026601.gif icon on your desktop or start menu
  2. click on utilities or tools
  3. click maintenance
  4. click clean cartidges
  5. follow the on screen instructions
If that doesn't help, you're either out of ink in which case:
  1. Buy a new cartridge (or have yours refilled professionally)
or your print head is clogged beyond repair, in which case:
  1. Buy a new cartridge
Happy printing.

Hi there, I have recently changed the black ink cartridge in my HP Deskjet 3845 printer, but it now prints with purple ink. Can you help?


have you cleaned the print head? done a test page? i had a simlilar problem with a lexmark but it turned out to be a refilled cartridge. if you are using genuine hp cartridges i would recommend printing a test page and checking the solid colours .

New color cartride not printing in color - printing in black and white


If you are not using factory new HP ink and cartridges then that is most probably your problems.

If you are using HP factory new cartridges, then contact HP technical support and inform them that you have a defective cartridge.

By the way, you did take the tape off of the nozzles and contacts, didn't you?
