On your printer settings on your computer when you select to print there should be a box that says only use black ink. Try that first and if it still prints in green you may have them in the wrong ports.

Just chaned ink cartridge and every thing printed out pink clean the pink and now nothing is printing tried cleaning the head and did the nozzle check and still not printing


It seems to me, if you have changed your colour cartridge that is, that you do not have enough black ink in your black ink cartridge, so you should change this also.

I suggest you try to reset the printer. remove the cartridges before starting these steps.

1. Press the Power button and the Cancel button at the same time and release them. The display will show 'Enter Special Key Combo'.
2. Now press the Blue(Scan), Green(Color Copy) and Grey(Black Copy) buttons one after the other. The display will show 'Support

Poor black print quality black prints greenish grey


  1. Lift the printer access door, then remove the ink cartridges from the printhead.
  2. Verify that the label on the ink cartridges is intact, and the cartridges are not damaged.
  3. Verify that only KODAK branded ink cartridges are installed.
  4. Insert the ink cartridges into the printhead, then press down firmly until you hear them click into position.
  5. Close the printer access door, then make the same print.
If issue still continues:
  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper tray.
  2. Press and hold Cancel + Copy/Resume simultaneously until the On/Off light flashes green. The On/Off light continues to flash during the cleaning procedure.
  3. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press and hold Scan + Copy/Resume simultaneously until the On/Off light flashes, then wait for the demo sheet to print.
If issue still continues:

the printhead for your printer is in need of replacement. Contact Kodak

Hp F4180 No copy to Plain paper


If you just replaced the ink cartridges, make sure you've removed the plastic tabs that cover where the ink shoots out. If they are old cartridges, make sure that the nozles haven't dried up. Remove the cartridges and dab a cloth (one you don't mind staining) where the ink shoots out, if all the colours show up, it's clear. If you notice very little colour, or none at all, try dampening the cloth and wiping down the cartridges to promote inkflow through the nozles. Hope this helps.

This is a software problem, do uninstall and re installation of the printer software on your computer and that should do it...

Cant print black or do black and white copies


He's not saying that the black cartridge won't print (which would warrant cleaning the heads, or messing with the cartridges) -- I have the same problem that MarkDan is having as well... no matter what you select as the output from any "Print" dialog window, the HP 21xx and 12xx series printers _always_ print in full color. You can choose Black and White, Greyscale, Color -- doesn't matter what you choose in the dialog boxes, it utterly ignores you, and will always print in color.
I have no idea why it does this, but it's eating a _ton_ of color ink for no good reason. I have searched all over the Web and on HP's site, but solution has been found.
