Many printers will not print if one color is out, some will. One thing to check is to make sure that when you print, the option for "balck and white" is selected in the printing preferences.

Many people don't realize that even though the document may be black and white the printer still processes it as a color document which wastes costly supplies.

Getting light print on b&w, changing density makes zero change. Toner changed, no effect.


Check whether you are running as Black and White or Gray Scale. Many printers only print straight black by using all four toner cartridges- Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, black. If are running colored print in black and white and u choose grey scale it will automatically give you a screened image as a light print.

HP Color Laser Jet CP1215: won't print at all since magenta is out. I changed printer to grayscale but just keeps blinking the magenta sing and the traiangle with ! sign next to it


I know the frustration being in IT for over 20 years working on various peripherals.
These printer MIX so that way there is a balance at the final phase. You have to purchase a magenta cartridge to get this working again. Bypassing this will make tis printer suffer and long term damage can cause a economical issue on your end in the long run.
Now if your at a critical point you can bypass but I do not professionally recommend this but here it goes.


1. Open the CP1210 Series Toolbox 2. OPEN System Settings 3. Then enable Cartridge Out Override 4. Then click apply
I hope this works for you, whilst you purchase a magenta toner. Please do not forget to leave a positive rating and feedback.

Best of Luck

CLC 1180 with error E020 with sub 0124


Did you change the Magenta stater/ developer? A E020 code is saying that the toner desity is low. Try replasing the developer and run the ATDC for Megenta and see if that helps. You may have a problem with the developing ass'y it self. You may be able to take another colors dev. ass'y with the hopper open and see if the code goes away. The sub code 0124 means that it is the Magenta dev. ass'y
