    i have the same problem.
    the solution is to never buy hp again. this happened w the past three hp multifunctions (i try to stay loyal) have purchased between this and all the unstable bloatware it installs, is forcing me to go to a new brand.
    it is a shame, hp used to be the standard for lab equipment. i have old hp printers that are 10 yrs old that work to this day (used when the new all in ones decide to **** out)

SOURCE: my yellow cartridge reads low

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 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.

Error message that color cartridge has low ink, so printer won't print. How do I override this? This message occurs when only one color is low and requires replacing the entire cartridge.


No way 2 override the message. Printer works on a combination of both black and color ink to print those perfect pictures and documents. If it is showing color ink needs replacement,you ve 2 change it in order to print even in black and white.

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.

There is an override sequence and it works well. Press the select button (checkmark) to indicate Main menu. Press right-arrow (RA) to select System Setup. Press Select , then RA to Print Quality, Hit select. RA to Replace supplies and hit Select. Now, RA to Override Out and Select. Confirm with Select again. Your 2600n will now run even with an empty toner cartridge.

Hp laserjet 1600, can I just print in black and white if all the cartridges need replacing but I just replaced the black


Cartridge Out Override can only be enabled from the printer's control panel menu.

1. From the main menu, press (Right arrow) to System setup and press (Select).
2. Press (Right arrow) to Print quality and press (Select).
3. Press (Right arrow) to Replace Supplies and press (Select).
4. Press (Right arrow) to Override out and press (Select).
5. Press (Select).

I suggest setting your printer to print "black only" in the printer properties window.

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.
