I changed my cyan cartridge when the printer said the cartridge was expired. Now, I only get red ink - no cyan or blue will print. I have taken all the cartridges out and then put them back in, but still no cyan or blue prints.

Your model is a Inkjet printer working on HP TIJ 4.0 technology4. So it cannot work with one valid cartridge. You have to replace all of them to make you printer to work. This is what HP advices and highly recommends.
The Ink cartrdige can be bypassed only in Laserjet printers
hello sir, hi, the ink comes out from the ink cartridge to the ink cradle where the ink pass to the paper, this is clogged, need you to clean the ink cradle, you can use warm water to soften the dried ink.
Place a soft clean tissue paper over the cartridge print head and leave for about eight minutes. You can secure it with the aid of a rubber band. It should be held firm ok. If the tissue paper is not dampened by ink then the cartridge would have gone bad or the ink dried. You also know that they have expiry date and could go bad while yet in the packaging b/c it has expired. Good luck
Hello, this is Harry from www.BusinessSpread.co.uk.
We had the exact same problem when printing, we used 3 different 78 colour ink cartages and they all said 100% full but did not work. We then had a look at the dates on the box and they were all expired so when buying ink from anywhere even PC world or Curry’s always look at the expiry date.
Today I went to PC world and purchased a new 78 ink which said expires July 2011 and it works perfectly fine.
I have the identical problem with an HP Business Inkjet 1100.
Once cartridges were past date, the printer would no longer print from Windows XP. It would however work perfectly from Linux.
did not find an ini file as mentioned in other posts, and I really did
not want to open the printer as it worked fine in Linux.
The following fixed the problem:
1) Click on Start button, run 2) Type in regedit, enter 3) Navigate to HKLM/software/Hewlett-Packard/HP Printers/HPWH Toolbox/Common 4) In the right panel, right click on Ink, pick modify 5) Change 0100 to 0000 6) Save and reboot
