Question about HP PSC 750 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

We have long had an HP PSC 750. We don't print in color and a tech person at HP told us just to buy black cartridges and take out the old color cartridge & put it back in and set the printing prefs for black only. This has worked for maybe 5 years but this time when the black ink ran out the method didn't work. The HP printer will no longer work and keeps saying that the color cartridge is incorrect & that we have to replace it. We can't buy a new color cartridge for $40 that we aren't going to use because we don't have this kind of money. We already cleaned around the cartridge as suggested in HP Help and we called the company but the idiots in India the company has hired refuse to help. They just try to sell things to us. What can we do?

You must replace the color ink cartidge because the inking system uses both cartridges even on just black prints.

Sad, but true. This is how HP makes their money. Selling ink, not printers.

I just hooked up my hp psc 750 printer to my laptop do you have to have a color ink to use this all in one printer


Yes you have to use both the black and color cartridge in order for the printer to work. Both cartridges need a good supply of ink in them to, or it wil not print.

Printer always says "Remove and check color cartridge"


It must be your ruined catridge. Some times the wire connections are burned at the side of the catridge and you must thaw away it and buy a new color catridge.

Installed black ink but hp psc 750 keeps saying install colour and i only have black ink. Can you operate this printer without colour in.


Print cartridge
When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.
Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.
1. Open the top cover of the printer.
2. Remove the print cartridges.
3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth. Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.
5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.
6. Close the top cover.
7. Try printing again.
If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .

How can i print in just black with no color cartrage


in your printer you can use single cartridge but there should be both cartridge inserted in the printer.it will not print if only one cartridge inserted.so let the colour cartridge empty but it should be there in the printer.other wise it will not print.at present the problem in your printer is colour cartridge circuit is got faulty so the printer is not detecting the co,lour cartridge in it.so it ask for replacement.in this case you will have to compulsary get the replacement cartridge.you can buy new cartridge or recycles cartridge that will be quite cheaper then new cartridge.

Color cartridge wont print


The color cartridge is defective. Sometimes, when the printer detects a refilled cartridge, it "marks" the cartridge as defective hence the refilled cartridge will not work on any printer.

HP PSC 750 PROBLEM


Had the same problem. Cleaned the copper-colored "contacts" on the actual printer. Where the printer and the cartridge touch ... you will see them when you take the cartridge out. Hope that helps.

Turning off the color cartridge


I have been fighting the same annoying issue for several hours this evening. I even used HP Live Chat and was told I needed to buy new cartridges. I'm not satisfied with that answer of course. Out of nothing more than a whim I told my puter to print a txt document I had open at the time...IT DID...with the red error light flashing and a color cartridge error on my display panel.

This was just a few minutes ago so I have no further info to offer. I look forward to seeing what others have to day regarding this issue.
