Question about HP PSC 2355 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Won't print docs in black ink

I have had my HP 2355 for a couple of years. Recently, my documents in WordPerfect have been printing in blue then pink. I thought the black ink cartridge was getting low so I changed it. It is still not printing in black. I know it is not my ink cartridge because when I print from the internet, Outlook, or make a copy, the black ink works fine. Can you tell me why this is happening?

The application that you use to print may have been cofigured to avoid the black color.

 

And sometimes a virus has affetced your application e.g. MS Word.... this may cause the printer to print in any colour.

 

In this case you should reinstall the application. (first completely remove the application).

HP PSC 2355 all-in-one scanning problem


hi shaundoyle -

first, I wanted to point you to HP's general support page for your model:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=422000&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

here is another link, this one to a doc for connecting to more than one HP product using a Mac:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=bpm01356&dlc=en&product=422000

here's a link to a doc about the scanning stopping:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c00803473&dlc=en&product=422000

and yet another link, this one for probs printing through 'classic' applications:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c00035422&dlc=en&product=422000

it sounds like one piece of software overwrote another, or your two pieces of hardware are fighting each other for your Mac's attention. hope this helps a little.

Printer print blue instead of black


I have the same problem with my ip 5200, when printing a document in plain black.. I spoke to canon support and they suggested to save the .doc document as a txt file before printing. It works. Not too sure if this uses any colour ink to produce the black.

You can also set the printer on grayscale. However, the printer uses the colour ink to produce black.... hence printing in black & white becomes rather expensive.

If anyone has drivers to fix this problem please let me know...

Documents print part way then stop


I've had similar problems in the past with my 1100dtn printer...there are several possible causes...it may simply be refusing to continue printing because the blue cartridge is completely out of ink...in spite of the black only setting.

Also, it could be some kind of software conflict, virus program, or spyware overload occuring in your PC...especially if the document you're trying to print is a large file, picture, or contains a lot of graphics. Try a test print from windows with other programs shut down.

Try completely removing the HP printer management software and then reinstall the latest version for your operating system from HP's web site.

A firmware upgrade may help. Firmware files and instructions are available on the HP web site. Mine printer has been running bug-free for about 18 months now...since I did a firmware upgrade. Firmware updates are complex...hopefully you'll find a simpler solution....but it may be needed, especially if your printer is more than a couple of years old.
