Re: out off ink

When you say the 'ink has been changed do you mean colour or black only. It does not matter what you are trying to print the printer must have a full set to function, If you have a full set remove the cartridge[s]. Switch off the printer wait 30 seconds switch on put the cartridge carrier to its proper position and reload the carts Further info from

Even when all properties are set to 'black & white' our Phaser 8550 won't print without all ink colours LOADED. How do I bypass this need so we only need/use black ink?

Only loading black ink and printing monochrome only is not an option on this machine. It must have color cubes installed to keep printhead purged and operating normally.

My mfc240c says to replace the yellow ink cartridge but I don't want to spend money on that if the 'light bulb' is ruined. When I turn on the machine, I don't see any light for scanning or copying. ...

By the "light bulb," do you mean the scanner lamp? That lamp should only turn on when you are actually scanning, faxing, or copying a document. You should be able to still use the machine to scan and fax, even with the yellow ink empty. Try scanning a document to see if the scanner lamp comes on.

As far as printing or copying goes, you won't be able to print or copy anything until you replace the yellow ink, even if you try printing in black and white only.

Some machines are very expensive to run.

If you are copying in colour mode, even if the page you are copying is just black & white, it will use all four colours to produce the black copy.

Change the mode to black and white and it should save you some money!

Printer will not copy

It Does keep asking if it fails to get it right, usually it fails to get scan of alignment page completed correctly because it fails to see one of the colours printed on its alignment page correctly,
I would guess that you should change colour cartridge as well (these I have seen deplete themselves trying print black when black ink is not present.

There is also a way of telling your printer to forget about alignment would you like to know how......Press and hold the Setup button, and then press Options (or Copy Options ).

Here is a link to how an alignment page should look and HP answers to your problem, please rate my solution for me.
