Printing problem with photosmart 2575

The printer goes through all self tests and alignment proceedures as is supposed to and evertthing appears to be working correctly, yet when I try to copy items via the copy button, my resulting printout has a strip of solid black about 3/4 of an inch wide on the printed copy. Any suggestions or solutions would be appreciated. Thanks!

My C3150 is not printing in color and I am pretty sure that the settings are correct.

You need to calibrate the printer. You are not supposed to skip this process. After loading a new printer you need to do the calibration without fail. You could get the black ink into work back. For this you need to run 'Self Test Diagnostic'. Along with this you need to also run the 'Print Cartridge Alignment'. This would help you to get the black ink to work.

A message comes up on the printer window saying remove and check colour cartridge. the cartridge is new and connections look ok

clean the cartridge contacts.... then align it.

To align the cartridges from the front panel follow the steps:
1. Press Setup.
2. Press 5, then press 2.
This selects Tools, and then selects Align Print Cartridge.

Printer will only print color pictures in black and cyan

Hi, this printer color cartridge contains all colors in one. So if you can print with one color means that the whole cartrige is ok but one or more colors ended. And you should had a low ink message on screen if it was genuine HP. Best thing to do is to go and buy a new one cartridge and see how it will go. This cartridge is green color.
