HP's Web site has troubleshooting steps. Make sure you have black ink, for one.

This may help:

After that, go into your setup menu; choose clean cartridges, then align cartridges.

Wont print in full black, does print in grey or any other colour.


Assuming you are using MS Excel, try going into page setup, sheet, and check the setting for 'print black & white'. If it is checked, then try unchecking it.

Hi there! I have a lexmark x5150. The problem is that I couldn't print black. So what I did was I opened up a word document, and changed the text from black, to dark gray... it worked!!!!!!!!!!!!! But...


Don't put your e-mail up for hackers to send you a virus!
Try to print from another program. It can't be as obvious as low(or completely dry) black cartridge could it? worth a shot? You can make a dark grey from the color cartridge just not dark black.

Canon i560 won't print black text anymore


I have now found the solution elsewhere in the internet: black text only prints on the Canon i560 if selct "normal paper", but not,for instance, if you have "professional photo-paper" selected.

Colored text printing


The printer assumes that the color cartridge is good, and is trying to print with the dead color cartridge.
See if there is a setting for your printer under the control panel, printer, and go to printer properties.
See if you can select to print BLACK only.
I know they have this option for some Canon Printers, but not sure with the HP Printer Drivers.
Worst case senerio, Highlight all of the text, and change the color to BLACK before printing. You can always just pick up a cheap refilled cartridge at Staples since it wont be used a lot, the quality isnt going to make much difference.

Good luck.
Hope this helps.
