    exactly the same problem for me, all other inks work but not the black, it seems that it's printing and making all the right noises but no black. I have changed the cartridge twice to check that first!

    I too have the same problem, admittedly I tried to use a substitute ink but going back to genuine replacement has not worked

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Blank paper comes out when print is pressed


Can you hear the print head moving??

If so then ink has run out OR is dry in print head, go into Printer software and locate "printhead clean".

If print head is not moving maybe fault internally.

Black ink will not print on Photosmart C6150; Ink


I'd do the reboot of the printer.Turn it off,unplug for 60 seconds,plug it back in,turn it back on and see if the black will work.After plugging back in it should clean the print head and then you can do a test page to make sure.

Will only print color even though there is black ink left...If I set it to print with black ink, blank pages come out. I know there is black ink left so why doesnt it print when I set it to print black??


Hi Mel,
It sounds like your print head could be blocked or the black cartridge has gummed up.
Have you tried taking the black ink out, put a rag over the hole where it would normally come out (carefully as it could go all over you) and gently shake the cartridge, then replace it back in to your printer.
Try printing in black and see if it helps, if not then i would be quite sure that its the print head, if this is the case then the only way would be to contact HP as I'm not sure if its possible to remove the print head or even if HP supply replacements.
I hope this helps a little
Mike

C6180 failed alignment test, will not print color properly


All colors need to be present to pass alignment. Usually what I see is the yellow is empty. You can blot the print cartridge on a damp paper towel to verify the inks are working and this also cleans the head.

My HP Photosmart C6180 All in One printer is not printing ing black even though I have replaced the black ink. It will print the colour sections but comes out blank for black. Any suggestions as to what...


Remove the black cartridge from the all-in-one and clean the copper contacts of the cartridge with a soft cotton cloth and then try to align the cartridges once and then try to print the self-test page. Also check the ink level and expiry date present on the cartridge.

Big Black not printing


Sounds to me your print head is plugged up. This is not usual though because the majority of people use black ink much more. So, in your printer utility, do a deep cleaning. If that does not work, there is a thing called a purge unit in it. This is a usual way of draining waste ink to a pad that soaks it up. if the hose, or other parts are clogged, it backs the ink up and causes the print head to clog. If this is the start of it, do not waste your ink cleaning, and try not to let it sit too long. Contact canon, and let them kno what you think it is.
