Question about HP Photosmart C3180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Will not print black

My HP C3180 Photosmart printer worked well until I ran out of ink and tried to refill the ink cartridges myself. Even though the cartridges are full of ink, the printer ink levels register as empty and will not print. Do you have a solution other than buying new ink cartridges?

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came withthe printer. When the software program asks you to connect theprinter to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

    Weldon is on to it. It's a software problem! I changed cartridges, cleaned, aligned, etc. and nothing happened. Then unplugged printer from my desk top and plugged it into my lap top. Black printed just fine. I uninstalled all HP printer software from my desk top computer, and downloaded new. Installed new software, plugged printer back into desk top computer, and it works fine.

Hi, Go to the printer settings and select colour printing option. Before that make sure that the cartridges are not blank or not get dry.

I have a hp c3180 photosmart


Printer manufacturers include chips inside the catridges.When the same cartridge is used the printer reads the chip and finds that you have refilled the cartridge and returns the error. The simplest way to get around is to have have 3 empty cartridges and rotating them one after the other. This way you can fool the printer and get around the check!
