    It is clearly set so it will print color. If I select black/white then the color symbol becomes grayscale. I have also got the message that there was a problem with the printer and that the cartridge was missing. I am so confused. Why does the black work and not ther color. Is it worn out. I have had this printer since 2002, but I don't use it alot.

    I have the exact same problem. I thought it might have been a bad
    inkcartridge so I took it back and tried a new one. Its like theprinter
    cant read it. All I get is a message missing inkcartridge. If anyone
    knows what to do I would like to know. I really dont want to trash it
    now that I have 2 brand new inkcartridges.

    Just for grins, plug in the old color cartridge to see if it's recognized. If so, it sounds like the new color cartridge is defective. You'll see on the cartridges that there are metallic contact points. This is what the computer uses to measure the ink left, tell the cartridge how much and what color to spray and when. If some point of contact is broken in there, it wouldn't be recognized and the computer will default to using only the black and print in grayscale. If that's the case, a new and functional color cartridge will "git 'r done". I've waited a while to use that! Keep me posted. Looks like an OT Ravens/Titans game so I'll be around!

    Check in the Properties box (right click, Properties) of the printer for a Printing Preference. Choose the Color tab and make sure Print in color is chosen and not Print in grayscale. If you don't see these options, let me know what you do see. Different manufactures label them differently but they'll be along the same lines.

No, I didn't get my problem resolved. I tried what I was told to do. It is weird that sometimes it recognized the cartridge and then other times, it doesn't. Can one cartridge go bad and the other print? I have a 888# that I am going to call tomorrow evening so maybe I can actually talk to someone. Thanks for all of your assistance.

Pull out cartridge to ensure plastic tab is really all gone.
Use the Clean Cartridge option.
And some new cartridges do indeed fail to deliver.

How to change the ink cartridge


Follow these instructions when you need to replace print cartridges.

• Everyday printing: Use a black cartridge along with a tri-color cartridge.
• Color photos: Use a photo cartridge along with a tri-color cartridge.
To replace the print cartridges
1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is on.
CAUTION: If the HP All-in-One is off when you open the print cartridge door to
access the print cartridges, the HP All-in-One will not release the cartridges for
changing. You might damage the HP All-in-One if the print cartridges are not
docked safely when you try to remove them.
2. Make sure you have letter or A4 unused plain white paper loaded in the input tray.
3. Open the print cartridge door.
The print carriage moves to the far right side of the HP All-in-One.
4. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a print
cartridge to release it.
If you are replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the
slot on the left.
If you are replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from
the slot on the right.
1 Print cartridge slot for the tri-color print cartridge
2 Print cartridge slot for the black and photo print cartridges
5. Pull the print cartridge towards you out of its slot.
6. If you are removing the black print cartridge in order to install the photo print cartridge,
store the black print cartridge in the print cartridge protector or an airtight plastic
container.
7. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only
the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.
1 Copper-colored contacts
2 Plastic tape with pink pull tab (must be removed before installing)
3 Ink nozzles under tape
CAUTION: Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles. Also, do
not re-tape the print cartridges. Doing so can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad
electrical connections.
8. Hold the print cartridge with the HP logo on top, and insert the new print cartridge into
the empty cartridge slot. Make sure you push the print cartridge in firmly until it snaps
into place.
If you are installing the tri-color print cartridge, slide it into the left slot.
If you are installing a black or photo print cartridge, slide it into the right slot.
9. Close the print cartridge door.greatcir.png

Lexmark X1100 printer will not print black


I came up with a work around for printing black.

I changed the black cartridge with the color cartridge.
Then when I have a letter to print, I change change (or write) the letter text to yellow, red or blue.
Then I can print out a letter.

By printing the text as yellow, red or blue the cartridge will try to print with only 1 color, but will print out black.

If you do not use one of these primary printing colors the out put will be unusable.

I can not of course print out pictures.

Not printing after color cartridge ran out - new black cartridge installed.


Yes, this printer has fixed printheads and must have ink in each color to prevent damage to the printheads. Even when printing black only each color is spit in the servicing area to keep the printhead unclogged.

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking


you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.
