SOURCE: HP 3210 black ink problem

I just posted my problem and found the solution on a different web page. It is this and it WORKS
All you have to do is HOLD DOWN FOUR BUTTONS AT THE SAME TIME: ( OK, Cancel, Black , Color ) and turn the power off. Do this at least twice and the unit will power up and go to maintenance. Then it was back to normal.
HP gives you a procedure that doesn't work! They just want to sell you a new one. They must know the solution if and old woman like me can figure it out with help from other people with the same problem

SOURCE: Black ink not working on HP C5180 Photosmart

Try a hard restart, which simply means unplugging the power cord of the printer, and replugging it after one minute has passed. If that does not work, then rerun the CD used to install the printer. Both techniques reprogram the electronics, to a certain extent.
You can also visit the HP website, to see what solutions are being offered for various printer problems. They probably have a number to call, in case you need to talk to a technician.
Hope these suggestions help you out.

SOURCE: hp psc 1510 - only want black ink

Hi Manavoc,

I will explain you the cause for it.

It prints in yellow first and then override with black for better quality. This is the reason your color ink gets empty.

Quicken 2008 won't print anything in reports in black


You need to replace the Black cartridge, as it appears the colour one is fine. Look in the printer options on your PC for a display of ink levels, and you'll probably find the black down to zero. If you've used generic cartridges, not genuine HP, you may find the printer can't actually read the ink levels.

The black ink on my HP Photosmart 3310 printer does not print. All the colour cartridges print with no problems.


Black printer ink in HP Photosmart may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

My printer screen says


The ink is contained in a cartridge.

Note that "backup" printing mode mixes colours, to produce "black", because the "black" ink-cartridge has failed.

So, replace the BLACK ink-cartridge.

Why does color ink in Photosmart C7280 go down when you are only printing using black ink


Unless you set the printer settings to black and white it mixes colored ink to create black. It does this by default. Go to start printers and faxes. Right click on printer icon.Click printing preferences to change this.If youre using hp tool box setting is grayscale black only.
Hope this helps.

Black ink not working


Print out a test print to see what comes out. If the printer is printing the black and colour blocks then the printer should be OK. If not then check the black and colour inks to make sure they are OK and remove each of the cartridges and reinstall them. Then run a full cleaning cycle and reprint the test sheet. Keep doing this until all the inks are printing OK. Then run an alignment test making sure that there is plain white paper in the paper tray and adjust the printer as necessary.

Colour cartridge missing but I only want to print


No you cannot. Each one of your cartridges is smart chipped. When this cartridge registers as empty it acts as an on/off switch thus turning the printer off.'

You need to replace the empty cartridge in order to print.

Go printer settings and check option to print only black.

Black ink cartridge wont print, have installed a new ink refill still no joy. Will print in all other colours.


Well if you already installed a new black ink cartridge and still wont print, then try cleaning your printer head. It can be that the some ink was hardened and got stuck preventing you to print a black color.
