SOURCE: hp deskjet 3845 won't print in color

When you click on "Print" and the window comes up, click on "Preferences".

Click on the "Color" tab. There should be an option to print in color or grayscale. Select "Color".

SOURCE: HP Deskjet 6940 not printing after replacing ink cartridge

My HP Deskjet 6940 is not printing. The color (left) low ink light is dark and the black (right) low ink light is flashing. I replaced the black ink cartridge with a new one but the low ink light continues to flash. No tears/rips in the circuit strip and all the copper leads appear to be connected

Try cleaning the print heads. You can find more troubleshooting info in the manual:

SOURCE: HP deskjet 3420 won't print in black.

It's probably because the colour cartridge has run out, it needs a colour cartridge aswell to print black.

SOURCE: HP Deskjet 990cxi Printer NOT printing B/W, only red.

To customer of HP deskjet 990cki: I purchased the HP photosmart Plus B209 ~ January 2010. 3 months into, I have learned that when the color ink that you don't use evaporates, the black ink will not work at all, no matter what you adjust or clean.To make it work you have to purchase more color ink...on & on & on..$$$$. Neither HP nor Best Buy will refund my investment. Spoken with HP customer service reps. in the Philippines & Canada both being outside of the US. NO customer satisfaction. No refunds. I suggest Boycotting both corps.

Can I print on my hp 6122 deskjet with only a black ink cartridge? I have no color ink.


Yes, all HP Deskjet printer models feature a 'single cartridge print mode'. Just remove the cartridge you don't wish to print with; the printer will automatically revert into either greyscale printing (if color cartridge remains installed) or black only printing (if the black cartridge remains installed). However, if the installed ink cartridge is electrically damaged/defective the printer will display an alert message; it will need to be replaced with a new cartridge.

the moving ink frame is probably pointing to a symbol such as replace color ink( three dots on ink cartridge picture). Replace color ink. You are probably printing your black and white documents with colored ink--always select black or greyscale.

Cannot get to print in color. everything is black


Print out a test print to see what comes out. If the printer is printing the colour blocks then the printer should be OK. If not then check the colour inks to make sure they are OK. Then run a full cleaning cycle and reprint the test sheet. Keep doing this until the inks are printing OK then run an alignment test and adjust as necessary. Next check the settings of the print driver to make sure that you have not defaulted to Black & White or Greyscale printing only. Also check the printer to make sure that the setup is OK and no defaults to Black & White / Greyscale printing have been set. If all this is OK then the most likely culprits will be the interface lead to the PC / Mac. Check that this is inserted and secured correctly at each end and is not damaged. If this is OK then uninstall the printer driver and download and install the latest printer driver from HP support at the following link

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=61236&lc=en&cc=uk&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=uk

Simply choose your operating system to proceed.

Once installed reboot the PC / Mac and all should be OK.

Printer is only printing grayscale, need color, hp deskjet 6340


This is either because: 1. You only have black ink remaining and your tri-colour cartridge is empty or 2. In the printer driver settings you have selected either: Print Grey scale or Use black only.
I beleive your problem might be the last option.
To fix it :
1. Go to the printer driver (in vista go to: Start, Control panel, Printers, right click on your printer and select "printing preferences"). Now you are inside the printer driver. 2. go to the "color" tab. 3. Tehre you'll see if you have selected wither "Print in grey scale" and/or "Black only". 4. To ensure you get color again, de-select the"Print in grey scale" option.

Print black & white?


Your printer will keep using the color cartridges to keep the printing head working even if you don't print in color. If you need to print only in greyscale, buy a cheap HP printer (Printer only, not a PSC) and remove the color cartridge.
