    Same problem. Color works great but black doesn't print at all, even though the "supplies" window shows that there's about 70% left on the black cartridge. I've cleaned with alcohol and lint-free swabs, and when doing that ink comes out onto the swap, so i know it's flowing... Done cleaning all the way through "stage 3" or whatever, no go. (Although it did seem to make the color work *worse*)


    Crappy printer, at least it was free. Still prints photos pretty nicely though...

I have a color printer hp office jet 7130 all in one and its only printing in cyan. is the printhead off? or broken can it be fixed and how much would it cost?


Go to paint create black,cyan,megenta & yellow images & print it, observe which colors are not printing,If back missed replace black cartrige, if any color missed out of remain three replace colour cartridge.There is no option to switch off the catridges & printer can recognise the faulty cartridge and it will show on displays.
You can order cartridges online.

HP C4500 ink consumption


Dear Sir,

Now a days all HP ink catridges available at low price that means ink quantity is also low.So if you print heavy coloured pages it will deffinately consumes more ink.So print in gray scale or black and white consumes low ink. Compare to gray scale,black and white printing consumes very low ink. So print in black and white is the better choice.

good luck

I changed my black ink and now i get the message left cartridge incorrect..how do i fix it?


HP PSC 2210 InkJet Printer. The following has to be done for checking the Blank Ink Catridge working : 01. Remove the existing Black catridge and Color Catridges from the Printer carefully. 02. Clean the location with a soft cloth with cleaning liquid to make the place dust free. 03. Put the correct black and colour cartridges recommended by HP and that too genuine one. 04. Do not use any refilled or reinked local catridges that will spoil the HP PSC 2210 printer. 05. Re-install the catridges both Black and Colour properly. 06. Take a test print out - both black and colour print outs. 07. Check the Printer status and there is no warning of Cartridges wrongly inserted. Have a Good day.

HP 4280 - new black refilled cartridge not recognised


hi steve... the solution to your problem is a costly one. the printer keeps in memory 2 cartidges for colour and 2 for black, when a third is placed in the printer the first one is deleted out of memory same for the colouredand same for the black... therefore you need 3 cartridges each to do the trick.
eg. if you want to use colour cartridge #2 then 1st place colour nuber 1 or 3, then turn it on let it reads, then open door and place in colour number 3 or 1 let it read, then take out and place in coulur number 2 and it will see it as new
