Within minutes of each other, both ink cartridges on my HP Deskjet 3000 printer showed that they had failed. I replaced the tri-color cartridge with a new one I had on hand, but the same error message...


you replaced the color cartridge. what about the black? If bothare new and properly installed, it should work. However using the tool menu, allign cartridges and clean digitally as directed. It should work. It is not the cartridge problem if they are new.

Will HP 60 ink cartridge work with HP Deskjet 2460? Tnx.


This is all HP recommends for the HP Deskjet 2460, so I wouldn't suggest buying anything else. First of all it might not fit and second, even if it fits, other issues may come with using those. If you can't see the list here it is:

I am trying to install my printer to my laptop with Windows Vista and the laptop says it is ready. I click print and nothing happens. The software details say that I need to upgrade to Windows 98, NT, or...


I think that the printer driver that you installed in your computer is not a driver for Vista. I checked the supported operating systems and it's compatible with Win 2000 upto Win XP.

BUT, I saw this on a site:

Supported software
Windows Vista HP Deskjet 656c Printer driver utility.

Meaning that there's is a possibility that HP has a Vista driver for your printer. You need to contact HP and ask them where can you get the Vista driver for your printer. I had a feeling that it's the only way that would make the printer work.

Have a great day!

HP won't print black, but other colors work. New refill kit...


I purchased a c6180 in Jan 09 have just got the black working fine. After pulling the nachine apart, thinking maybe to soak the head, found micro pump for ink air in black line Run copy black only (took maybe 12x25 times) then head clean Try head clean after 50 copies Voila! Black Cannot rule out that reseating all connections helped

Installing a new printer cartridge on hp deskjet 656c


You must gingerly remove that cartridge before anything else. Try a pair of needlenose pliers - and *gently* wiggle free.

My printer wont print in color & its a new color ink cartridge


have the printer preferences been changed accidentally to print in greyscale? Is the cartridge installed correctly? Now and again if the cartridges are opened and not installed straight away the ink dries up in the nossel and clogs the printer head, easily rectified with some cleaning solution. Cartridges also go out of date. hope this helped
