Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

My HP Photosmart C4180 all-in-one printer has on the screen a gray scale ink icon which I think indicates low ink but there is only a black ink cartridge (which I replaced) and a tri-color cartridge. Why are my colors still not true?

Is there any way to get my printer to print only black copies without having to buy the new color print cartridge


Go to the printer settings - Preferences- color tab - and select Grayscale in the color selection.

Once this is done, try print a color text and see if it comes in a gray scale. This will work.

To give you a tip on this.... understand that this printer has a black ink cartridge and a tri-color cartridge. When we select grayscale, only black cartridge would be used.

Good Luck.

My HP Photosmart 8250 is not printing any black ink even when the cartridge is full.


If this is happening after the cartridge was just replaced then make sure you do not have any flags setup in the color settings page in printer preferences that is not letting it use the black ink cartridge. eg. gray scale using color only etc.

Try the Clean cartridge function in the service menu in printer preferences and see if the test page comes ok.

My refilled ink cartridge still displays empty and will not print


The ink cartridge is most likely chipped & you would not be able to reset the ink level. Purchase an original or a good compatible cartridge. Refiling newer cartridges is not a good idea.

HP C4500 ink consumption


Dear Sir,

Now a days all HP ink catridges available at low price that means ink quantity is also low.So if you print heavy coloured pages it will deffinately consumes more ink.So print in gray scale or black and white consumes low ink. Compare to gray scale,black and white printing consumes very low ink. So print in black and white is the better choice.

good luck

Ink problem


You need to go to HP.com and download updates. Sometimes the all-in-ones will need them after adding new ink. Also stay away from generics inks they will cause problems. Hope this helps.

How can I print Black only?


Hi

HP Inkjet printers work only if both the cartridges have ink unlike HP Laserjet printers.
If you want the printer to print only in black, Follow the steps

Start --->Control panel -- >Printers and faxes ---->Right click on the printer icon (HP c5100) select printing preferences.
Under printing prefences there u will see an option to print with black or print in gray scale.

Note:HP Inkjet printers like Photosmart C5180 will work only both the cartridges have ink.

Thanks
Riz

Printing in black only on HPC4180


Click on Start> Settings/Control Panel> Printers and faxes> Right click on the default printer icon and left click on Properties> under properties you will see Printing references> there you see a option to use black cartridges only select it and apply and ok.
And try to print.
If not whenever you ptint any document you will see the printer where you can make selection of printers, even there you can right click on the printer and choose to print only in black.

Good Luck
