Question about HP OfficeJet k60 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Cartridge problems I have not used my printer in quite some time. My screen showed out of black ink. So I bought a new one. When I installed it, the color one keeps saying "Wrong color cartridge installed". I never touched the color cartridge. I want to print in black only. I was told I could take out the color cartridge but it now says "Install color cartridge." I have tried cleaning the color cartridge but nothing changes. Any ideas?

Re: cartridge problems

Ref: our live chat - Definitely worth replacing the colour one with a new one - some other people had identical problem and that cured it - they really don't survive not being used very well. :)

I can't print with the black ink. I performed a print head cleaning, and then I printed the nozzle check pattern. I noticed that the Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow shows up. However, the black checkered...

Simple problem that print head cleaning will typically not fix. The black ink is pigment based so it tends to form more stubborn clogs. Just remove the print head and if you have a steamer hit the black printhead nozzles with some pressured steam. If not available, soak the surface of the printhead in shallow hot water (try not to get the contact wet or be sure to dry them if you do). You can tell if the printhead nozzles are open by folding a section of wet paper towel like 5-10 layers and then soak it, press the printhead surface up and down lightly on the wet paper towel and if the nozzles are open you will see some ink pulse in the black port screen (the colors will also pulse from the pressure of the liquid under the printhead). It's easier than it sounds so give it a try. I've saved 100s of Canon printheads this way.

Note: if you have a really dried out head, you sometimes have to soak from the top inlet ports and the bottom nozzle surface to clear, but unlikely in you case since you had a black cartridge installed with ink in it (this keeps the top port from drying).

Cant print

Ink button on? Check status monitor? I think is ink out message. Head cleaning for several time, throw ink too much. If u don't use CISS, after instaled ink tank, just wait for 1 hour before use printer. Ink will flow to head itself.

New ink cartridge istallation: Brother MFC-240

I guess you d used generic ink carts?!
If yes, the cart holder needs replacement due to ink that has stained the led control. The ink has made a short circuit. The error can only be deleted by replacing the whole cart holder!
