Why am I getting thin black lines across my pictures when printing them?


Are you printing color, or B&W? Clean cartridge (Black and Photo). Align cartridges. Last resort, wipe contacts on cartridges with lint free cloth and alcohol. Get new cartridges!!

Black ink will not print


Have you tried setting the color to black cartridge only. You may be printing the black with a combination of colored inks. I occasionally have a similar problem. Sometimes I can get the black to work by taking a paper towel dampened with distilled water and holding it against the cartridge print head until I see black ink coming out. Replace the cartridge and try printing again. If this doesn't work try a new cartridge and run through your Printer Settings, making sure they are all set properly.

This happens regularly in some models when the alignment of paper is not done correctly. If the cartridge does not have a good print quality, the scanner can not correctly read the alignment and alignment repeated several times until you get it right.
Check the alignment with cartridges in excellent condition.

Why is my black ink not printing


Hi Colleen,

Try this > open a document (from the computer) and select print from the menu,
- In the print screen window select 'properties' Or 'Preferences' or 'Properties'

- In the next window click 'maintenance'

- In the next window there will be many options to clean, align, nozzle check etc... , there click 'Ink cartridge settings'.

- A small windows opens, there select black only. See the image

- try printing, if it fails to print, just return the cartridge to the shop and get a genuine branded one. (dont forget to change the 'ink cartridge settings to normal to 'both black and color')


Hope this help, if you are not able to fix it still, then better come to chat here , thanks! 10_22_2011_5_46_32_am.jpg

6180 will not print black text


Are you using genuine or knock off inks?
Take out the blabk cartridge and knock in onto your hand while using a paper towel to absorb ink.
If ink comes out you have a communuication problen with the printer ink carriage or a defective cartridge.

Color Cartridge Failure


You know, I'm not going to read the other solution. I know 100% FOR SURE, when a cartridge fails, it is dead and there is nothing you can do about it, but there is a good side. HP ink cartridges have a year warranty. Call them and tell them it failed, they'll send you a new one!
