PROBLEM: set to black ink only: Start>ControlPanel>Printers>rightclick choose properties. Choose Advanced Tab>Printing Defaults>Color Tab>Choose Print in Grayscale> dropdown choose Black Cartridge Only >Apply> ok

NOTE: This applies to hp C6280 printer, Windows2000.
NOTE: any other version of Windows has same basic properties layout for your installed printer. You may have to poke around to find where Microsoft has 'hidden' printer properties. Once there, it is straightforward.

You do it through the software on your PC. HP has user software that you installed when you set up the printer. There is usually a setting for color/BW there. Otherwise use the printer properties settings.

My C6280 printer says the black is empty but it is


Dear Sir,

Printer doesn't identify the ink accurately all these are controlled by software only.So it is showing your black cartridge is empty but trace amount of ink actually remained,by this you are getting black and white prints correctly.After the consumption of that trace amount of ink it may print black text as a greenish-brown because printing taking place only by means of color cartridges.So if you observed blurred text or greenish-brown text, now you can replace your ink cartridges.

i think it helps

good luck

How can i print in just black with no color cartrage


in your printer you can use single cartridge but there should be both cartridge inserted in the printer.it will not print if only one cartridge inserted.so let the colour cartridge empty but it should be there in the printer.other wise it will not print.at present the problem in your printer is colour cartridge circuit is got faulty so the printer is not detecting the co,lour cartridge in it.so it ask for replacement.in this case you will have to compulsary get the replacement cartridge.you can buy new cartridge or recycles cartridge that will be quite cheaper then new cartridge.
