My husband bought this printer 2 years ago. but we're not using it that much not until I went back to school. I've printed a lot of homework now and I noticed that the black ink is still full and all other colors are half empty. I tried to print it in greyscale but still no black ink. Please help me!!!!

Re: no black printing out in my 2600n printer
Try taking the black toner cartridge out, hold it by its ends and rock it back and forth several times. Also gently tap on the catridge a few times too. This will dislodge and redistribute the toner which is still inside.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

First of all, for financial reasons you don't use a color printer. Unless you print graphs. Second of all, this is a laser printer, it doesn't use ink. Third, all four toner cartridges must be inserted and working in order to print in any color.
Go back and read the "First of all" again and buy a B and W laser printer.
Yes you can. Press the arrows until you get in the screen the option system setup and press the check, then press the arrows again until you get print quality and press check, go to replace supplies and press check, press the arrows and you will see the option override out, press check two times and the unit will get back to ready, It might do a calibration but after that the unit will ignore the toner level and will print. By the way you can use color if there is still toner inside the color cartridges
There is an override sequence and it works well. Press the select button (checkmark) to indicate Main menu. Press right-arrow (RA) to select System Setup. Press Select , then RA to Print Quality, Hit select. RA to Replace supplies and hit Select. Now, RA to Override Out and Select. Confirm with Select again. Your 2600n will now run even with an empty toner cartridge.
HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer - Installing Print Cartridges
When a print cartridge approaches the end of useful life, the control panel displays a message
recommending that to order a replacement. The printer can continue to print using the current print
cartridge until the control panel displays a message instructing to replace the cartridge.
The printer uses four colors and has a different print cartridge for each color: black (K), cyan (C),
magenta (M), and yellow (Y).
Replace a print cartridge when the printer control panel displays one of the following messages:
Replace yellow cartridge, Replace magenta cartridge, Replace cyan cartridge, Replace black
The control panel display also indicates the color that should be replaced (unless a
genuine HP cartridge is not currently installed).
Change the print cartridge
Turn off the printer.
Open the front door.
Do not place anything on the transfer belt (ETB), which is located on the
inside of the front door.
Remove the used print cartridge from the printer.
Remove the new print cartridge from the bag. Place the used print cartridge in the bag for
Grasp both sides of the print cartridge by the blue handles and distribute the toner by gently
rocking the print cartridge from front to back.
Do not touch the shutter or the surface of the roller.
Remove the orange shipping locks and the orange shipping tape from the new print cartridge.
Discard the shipping tape and shipping locks according to local regulations.
Align the print cartridge with the tracks inside the printer, and using the handles, insert the print
cartridge until it is firmly seated.
Firmly close the front door.
Turn on the printer. After a short time, the control panel should display Ready.
If a cartridge is in the wrong slot or is the wrong type for the printer, the control
panel will display one of the following messages: Incorrect yellow, Incorrect magenta,
Incorrect cyan, Incorrect black.
Installation is complete. Place the used print cartridge in the box in which the new cartridge
arrived. See the enclosed recycling guide for recycling instructions.
If a non-HP print cartridge is in the printer, check the printer control panel for further instructions.
When replacing or changing a black print cartridge, a cleaning page will
automatically print. This helps prevent speckles on the front or back of printed documents.
A cleaning page can also be generated using the control panel or the HP Toolbox.
