Did you say the colors just "refilled"? If you are refilling the ink cartridges, there is no guarantee of it working whatsoever.

SOURCE: MP600 only prints blue and black no red or yellow.

When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.

Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.

1. Open the top cover of the printer.

2. Remove the print cartridges.

3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth.
Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.

5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.

6. Close the top cover.

7. Try printing again.

If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .

 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

What is the purpose of an R2 filter?


Each filter intensifies its color and darkens others, especially the color opposite on the color wheel. They're not of much use in color photography, unless you want weird color casts, but they come into their own in black&white photography.
For example, a red filter intensifies red and darkens blue. It can make a sky look almost black, making clouds pop out. Similarly it can darken foliage. A green filter on the other hand will brighten foliage.
If your camera can take black&white photos, try taking pictures of a red rose with green leaves with and without the filters. With one combination the rose and the leaves will be the same shade. With a red filter the rose will be bright against the dark leaves. With a green filter you'll get a dark rose with bright leaves.
With digital photography you can achieve the same effect in postprocessing, but some times its easier to get the result in camera.

I have HP Deskjet D2466 Printer and when i want to print with color cartridge, the black color would be printed as blue color... My black cartridge was exhausted so i only can printed with color...


when the color cartridge has to make black, it uses all three colors. printing blue indicates that the color cart. is getting low on red and yellow. get a new black cart. and a new color, 'cause it' s coming due.

Let me know

Only prints in green and blue


You are more than likely out of magenta (red) ink. That printer uses a tri-color cartridge, and it has cyan (blue) magenta (red) and yellow ink. Green is blue + yellow-therefore you do have those two colors; since it will not print anything red or black you will need to replace both cartridges.

Color is wrong


Have you tried replacing the cartridges? Some programs such as Adobe Reader will generate a "black" equivalent from the color cartridge. In this case, if the color cartridge is low in red, the outcome will be blue. This would signify that the color cartridge needs to be replaced. HP supplied a utility program for the HP6122 to detect and report ink levels. If you have this utility, check the levels. The utility will only work if the computer is directly connected to the printer -- not thru a print server. If you don't have the utility, you should be able to get it at the HP website http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=83028&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=88749

You might find that both the black and the color cartridges are out of ink. Some print drivers can detect when the black cartridge is empty, then attempts to print a black equivalent using the color cartridge.
