Make sure the printer is ON.

2. Open the print-carriage access door by lifting from the front center of the device, until the door locks into place.
The print carriage moves to the far right side of the printer.

3. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. If you are replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. If you are replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right.

4. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot.

5. If you are removing the black print cartridge in order to install the photo print cartridge, store the black print cartridge in the print cartridge protector. For more information, see Use the print cartridge protector. If you are removing the print cartridge because it is low or out of ink, recycle the print cartridge. The HP Inkjet Supplies Recycling Program is available in many countries/regions, and lets you recycle used print cartridges free of charge.

6. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.

7. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Push the print cartridge forward until it clicks into place.
If the print cartridge you are installing has a white triangle on its label, slide the print cartridge into the slot on the left. The label for the slot is green with a solid white triangle. If the print cartridge you are installing has a white square or a white pentagon on its label, slide the print cartridge into the slot on the right. The label for the slot is black with a solid white square and a solid white pentagon.

8. Close the print-carriage access door.

SOURCE: No black ink print. Prints in light blue

Cartriges have a shelf life. It's printing in blue either because it has dried up or is out. Different cartriges have different timelines but if you haven't been using the printer often, it could have dried up or is simply out of ink. I would suggest first to try cleaning the head of the cartrige where the ink comes out with alcohol and a Q-tip and then if that doesn't work, buying a new black cartrige.

SOURCE: Photosmart 7960 prints blank documents; prints from internet ok

If it can print from the internet, it is working properly. I would disconnect the printer from the computer, uninstall the drivers and reboot twice. Reinstall the drivers and hook up the printer when instructed. Make sure that you select this as the default printer. (unless, of course, you have another as default)

On HP Photosmart 7960, which cartridge to replace when the blue and green look pale


The printer takes a tri-color cartridge and a black cartridge. So anytime there is an issue with color, replace the tri-color cartridge. As far as using compatible inks, you will not be able to use HP's software for ink levels with compatible inks. This feature will work only with HP ink cartridges.

To know when ink needs rep


With compatible ink you will just have to watch for colors fading. HP software supports only HP ink, so the ink monitoring software will not function with compatible cartridges

Recalibrating a refilled black ink cartridge for a photosmart 7960


your printer probably cannot recognize one of both cartridges 
clean the contacts of the cartridges and the contacts of the cartridge carrier  with a wet towel 
if that does nt work your ink cartridge has probably overheated  because air has left in the cartridge after refilling and must be replaced
check here the right way for refilling

Make sure the cover that holds the ink cartridge in place is completely closed down on the cartridge. Also make sure there is not a pencil or something under the cover where the ink is , obstructing the print head
