Caution lite flashing over cartridge of hp deskjet 940c. error message says that there is not color ink cartridge in printer. There is and the interface says the tank is full. It won't print...


Even though the interface says the cartridge is full, if the printer detects it being empty, odds are you will have to replace the color cartridge, even though you are only printing black.
You can try taking the cartridge out and cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser and reseat the color cartridge. If no change, replace the cartridge.

I just loaded new HP 94 and HP 97 ink cartridges in my HP 6210 Officejet. I went through the alignment process and received a sheet that had colors, but no black ink. The printout indicated the alignment...


Make sure all the protective tape on the Black cartridge has been removed. Also are the inks re-filled? I have seen many re-filled cartridges fail in a similar maner.

I'd like to buy HP Officejet 4500 Wireless All-in-One Printer. Is it compatible with Window7? Does it come with black and color cartridges or do I have to buy them additionally?


The printer HP Officejet 4500 is fully compatible with Windows 7 (both 32 & 64bit versions). About the cartridges (black & color) the printer is shipped with the cartridges included in the box. I assume that the shop that you are about to buy the printer will not open the box and remove the cartridges.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

I have a hp officejet 5510 that prints the first line and the next is light and than dark and than light again


Hi,
The problem could be caused due to blocked printer nozzles or bad print head. Try cleaning the ink nozzles first.
1 Press Setup.
2 Press 5, then press 1.
This selects Tools and then selects Clean Print Cartridge.
A page of patterns is printed. The print cartridges are cleaned. Recycle or
discard the page.
If copy or print quality still seem poor after you clean the print cartridges,
replace the print cartridge that is affected. For information on replacing
print cartridges, see replace the print cartridges.

Changing ink default to BLACK


Not possible.
Epson uses the black cartridge mostly, but also adds color to the black printing in order to keep the color inks from drying in the print jets on the printhead.
They also make lots of money that way...

Only prints in yellow color


The printer must be able print all colors in order to execute the alignment. Part of the alignment process involves scanning printed colored (all colors including yellow) bars. See the web page below for a sample of the printout. I suggest that you clean the carriage and cartridge electrical contacts with a cotton swab moistened with water. If you still fail to get yellow, test the cartridge in another printer. ping me for the make of printer, anyways if it an HP series refer to the website below

Unfortuantely , to solve the issue , sadly, yes you will have to replace the empty cartridge to continue to use the printer in a normal fashion. Its a sneaky and dirty trick many printer manufactuers do to make more money off of the customer through the purchase of printer ink.

New Ink cartridges registering as empty ...


Is it an HP printer? We had the same problem at work with print cartridges purchased at Staples. They have a major quality control problem. Your new print cartridge may be empty or dried out (died on the shelf). It's my problem at work, as I have over 80 HP deskjets, and Purchasing still insists on buying the Staples cartridges rather than the HP.

Sometimes if you shake a print cartridge really hard it may correct the problem. However, I would buy or borrow a black HP print cartridge and try it out in your printer. Works almost every time on the job. Good luck.
