    dont quite understand what you mean?

    I have the same problem, but with the yellow color. I was out of yellow ink and when I put in the replacement cartridge it would not detect that it is a full cartridge. I bought another cartridge thinking it was a bad cartridge, the second full cartridge does the same thing.

    HP C5180 won't print black. Had same problem with C3000 series. dthrew it in the bin

    My black ink cartridge won't print either on my c5180 printer. I bought a new cartridge thinking the old one was damaged, but still no luck. All the 5 other colors work fine. I spent hours and days online emailing HP support, but as usual they were no help. This is the second brand new HP printer I have bought in 4 years. The last one would have cost more to fix it than to buy a new one, so it was trashed. I am about to take it to a computer repair store. I will keep you informed.

There is a circuit opposite to the cartridge exactly if that cable which has this circuit it causes exactly the same problem what you r facing at present. if the printer is ubnder warranty send it to the hp service center for free repair or may be replacement. but if not under warranty contact local technician as it will not be too costly at local repair center.but if you send it to ho service center for reparing if its without warranty that it will cost u very much for this.

Why must you have pink ink if you want to print in black only


unfortunately it was programed into the firmware of the printer to have ink in all cartridges. if you desire to print in black only after the cartridge is replaced then go into the printing preferences and under either advanced or color select print in greyscale then black ink only apply the change and from that point on all docs will print using black ink only

Printer only won't print in black


My printer did that a few months ago. I tried everything to get it printing black but in the end I had to take the ink cartridge back and return a new one. Some ink cartridges dry out when they are being shipped if not stored in proper conditions.

I have a printer HP c5180 all in one, only have black ink , not color, i dont want print in color . can I use the printer black and white (not color) only?


You can go into the print properties and set it to print black only, however if any of the color cartridges are empty the printer may not print until you replace whichever cartridge is empty.

The printer doesn't recognize the new original HP color cartridge


There is a small spring that holds the ink cartridge in the ink holder. You will see it stick out from the right hand side of the ink holder where the ink cartridge slides in. If that spring isn't being held to the ink holder by two plastic tabs, (I.E. the plastic tabs are broken) the printer will never recognize the cartridge. If the printer is still under warranty I would contact HP or an authorized repair center for HP. Both the black and color ink holder has this spring. I know of no way to repair this kind of breakage.

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

Black ink not working on HP C5180 Photosmart


Try a hard restart, which simply means unplugging the power cord of the printer, and replugging it after one minute has passed. If that does not work, then rerun the CD used to install the printer. Both techniques reprogram the electronics, to a certain extent.
You can also visit the HP website, to see what solutions are being offered for various printer problems. They probably have a number to call, in case you need to talk to a technician.
Hope these suggestions help you out.
