Because the inkjet printer assumes you will always want to be able to print in colour (after all, why else would you buy a colour printer) it will want to keep the jets clean and available for printing.

As a result the printer will always run cleaning routines that use up some of that precious ink otherwise the printhead would clog and then you wouldn't be able to use it properly.

Bottom line is that you need to get a new cartridge. Frustrating but in the context above it hopefully makes a bit more sense..

If you are really only ever doing mono (Black and White) printing then I'd seriously consider a mono laser type unit as the consumables are cheaper and you'd avoid all this waste too.

Hope that helps and sorry it's not quite the answer you were hoping for.

My out of warranty l7680 will not print or photocopy in colour. Printhead status says Refilled supply Detected in printhead Black No/Yellow Yes Magenta Yes/Cyan Yes Detected in Printer Black No/Yellow Yes...


The error states that you are using non-HP cartridges for all colours. If black prints fine then you should replace the colour cartridges with genuine HP colour carts. You should be able to get a refund on the refills since they clearly do not work as intended.

My HP OfficeJet L7680 just stopped printing ANYTHING black. I change the black cartridge twice.I cleaned the printer heads, aligned it and still it will no longer print anyhting in black. When I do a test...


It sounds like your printer setup has changed to generating black by MIXING the color inks... if you run out of the cyan and yellow it will do red in spite of how many changes you make of the black cartridge.

Investigate the setup for the printer to make sure it is set for black from the black cartridge.

Printhead Problem:


Have you tried to replace the black/yellow printhead? This is not the same as the ink cartridges, but it is located in the compartment under and to the right of the scanner lid.
Here is HP's link.

HP L7680 won't print black, cartridge is new, says it is full, Self diagnostic page says printhead is good


Try printing a Diagnostic page or clean cartridge. Looks like the printheads might be clogged due to low usage or general wear and tear, they may not be working as desired.

HP will not recognise new cartridge


The problem you are describing with the yellow cartridge sounds like ink starvation possibly due to a clogged print head or an air bubble in the print head. Since the machine is so new I would contact HP to get the print head replaced. As for the magenta cartridge, exchanging it for a new one at the store you bought it from should fix the problem. It sounds like the chip on the one you have is either damaged or wasn't set to read full ink levels.

HP officejet pro l7680 all in one


Most likely the print head has failed and the black is not printing which is causing the printer to have issues. Talk to HP as I guess printheads have warranty or simply change the yellow/black printhead. Or if all of these fail give the machine to HP to get you a new one as this is not right. I hope this helps.
