C7180 Print in color without all cartridges

Is there any way to print in color (I know the color will be off) without having all cartridges full of ink?  (Example: I don't care if the magenta is empty, I'm printing all cyan! It still wont print my cyan)

    no, it's my printer telling me this. when i print, it tells me "you are out of magenta, if you'd like to print with just black ink, press ok"  i have no option to have a bad print because of my empty cartridge.

Sorry. I see that your particular printer uses separate cartridges. So you'll have to get another one to replace the empty.

You can usually print with an empty cartridge, even though the software will inform you that the cartridge is empty. Your print quality may be affected, however.

Hi, the same occurs to me today, I went to Walmart in Barceloneta, Puerto Rico at night, I brough the Black cartridge for $18.00 I was really happy about it, I went to my home and install it, then say the same It can't print without mangenta and the others ****. WELL, but I still love lexmark so I realice a solution, it will be inminent to buy the others colors, but then do not use them, just keep them fulled; use only black, and then you will be able to change black only, since the colors will be always full. ALWAYS CHOICE PRINT IN BLACK AND WHIT. Hope you find this a little usefull. Go to: josiqvideos09 on youtube channel. Thanks.

you can try to take out the color cartridge and set your printer settings to use blank ink or print in black only, then try to print again. Feel free to rate if this was useful/helpful.

Open the printer and remove the ink. Clean around the ink carriage and the under the ink with alcohol and a cotton swab. Pay special attention to areas with copper contacts. Keep in mind too that some printers will not print, even with full ink, if the exact type of ink it expected you to have installed is not right. Double check that the ink is correct against the manual or written instructions inside the printer using the number not the shape or color of the cartridge. Not every cartridge that fits the printer necessarily works.

Won't print with just black ink cartridge


When you print, in the printing window, click properties, then click advanced. Most times you can select to print using black cartridge only. Unfortunately you will need to replace to get the printer working. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thank you,

Will not print cartridges out of date


I never heard of that for the C7180 all-in-one. Remove the ink cartridges. Dampen a rag with water. Slide the cartridges across the rag until you see ink. If yes, than good. Grab a couple of cotton swabs & drip a couple drops of alcohol onto a tip. Wipe the copper contacts off on the ink cartridges. Do the same to the contacts within the ink carriages. Replace the ink into the carriage.
From your computer, open Printer and Faxes. Make sure your HP C7180 all-in-one printer has a check mark next to it. If not, left click the C7180 once so its high-lighted. Than click "File" in the upper left corner of the window. Left click, "Set as Default printer". Than right click once on the C7180 & slide to & left click on Properties. In the next window click "Printing Preferences", Another window will open. Left click the "Services" tab. Click the "Service this device" button.
Than click, "Clean the Print Cartridges". When the printer finishes, click "Print a Test Page", button. (If you do not see ink on the test page than your ink cartridge are too clogged & you'll have no choice but to replace them).

Using the damp rag loosens possible clogged/dried up ink. Cleaning the contacts with alcohol removes oil from touching the copper contacts with your fingers, also removes dust. Always keep a cover over your printer when not in use. My current ink cartridges are at least 1+ year old. HP & other manufactures do use tracking software to monitor your ink cartridges in this fashion. If you remove an empty cartridge & re-fill it & replace the cartridge the software knows. Each cartridge has a tiny chip attached to it.
The internal software knows when you fill a ink cartridge & can shut down your ability to print. Forcing you to buy new ink cartridges. Below is the HP link for your C7180 printer.

Printer problem


Your printer is going to continue to send that error message, based on the fact that it doesn't matter if you have a full black cartridge, it's not going to print without the color cartridge wierd I know but that's how it works.
