Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I use a HP Deskjet 1420 for some minor printing needs in the office. The black ink recently ran out of all the cartridges I had. I refilled the cartridges (HP 21). However, it will not print black ink now. Color prints fine. And the ink levels show that the black ink cartridge is full. However, when I print a document with black text nothing is on the page: not one dot of black.

SOURCE: How do I reset the ink levels?

We have an issue of missing or replace yellow cartridge. Please feel free to contact the HP support for replacement of the printer, if the printer is in warranty status. HP would replace the printer.

SOURCE: Not printing after color cartridge ran out - new black cartridge installed.

Yes, this printer has fixed printheads and must have ink in each color to prevent damage to the printheads. Even when printing black only each color is spit in the servicing area to keep the printhead unclogged.

Try pushing it gently using some pressure. I had the same problem and it got solved using a little push.

Hi,
when you refill the cardtridge, you can not reset the ink level... because refilling doesn't show the ink levels.. you no need to worry. if ink is there in the carttridge it will print...
Shouldn't worry about it. They are only a rough guide. The only time to worry about it is when the printer stops working and it has told you it's run out of ink! Thank you.......

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.

I have a HP 1460 printer & I have now no black ink in my printer.can this printer support any duplicate cartaige(local cartaige)?


No, that printer only uses the 21 Black and 22 color cartridges. The best thing to do when you run out of ink is to buy a refill kit and then refill each cartridge at home. This saves lots of money in the long run. Click on the link below to view a refill kit for your HP D1460:

I got a refilled hp 27 cartridge refilled at a local office supply store and installed it into my hp deskjet 3740. It prints in "normal" mode but the text is faded. I used the calibrate and clean...


It is probably the "refilled" cartridges. Return them and buy a know good brand. Office Depot's brand seems to work fine in my HP printers.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response
Thanks, Joe

Just installed refilled black ink cartridge on hp


By using refilled cartridges you will always have this problem. Each cartridge has a chip that lets the printer know when it is full or empty. By pressing the ok button you may be able to clear this message. However, most of the time you can still be able to print and ignore the message.

Hello,after refilling ink cartridges HP21 and


Since HP’s ink technology is different from other manufacturers, they do not recommend to use refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges. Though the cost of genuine HP cartridges are bit expensive than the other cartridges, HP cartridges are manufactured in keeping mind the important factors print quality and customer satisfaction. Using the refilled cartridges may degrade the print quality and may damage the printer’s internal hardware.

I request you to use genuine HP Inkjet cartridges and verify the result.

Hi there, I have recently changed the black ink cartridge in my HP Deskjet 3845 printer, but it now prints with purple ink. Can you help?


have you cleaned the print head? done a test page? i had a simlilar problem with a lexmark but it turned out to be a refilled cartridge. if you are using genuine hp cartridges i would recommend printing a test page and checking the solid colours .

Printer Toolbox Not Recognizing New Black Ink


The Deskjet 6940 will only show ink level for original HP cartrdgies. Refilled or reman cartridges will show as empty or unknown in the toolbox. This is not an issue with the driver, the cartrdige itself has information that it has been previously used and this is not resettable. You can continue to print with a cartrdige that has unknown ink levels, you will just not get low ink warnings.

Flashing ink refill light


Sometimes refilling them over and over doesn't work well. Once ok...but i suggest that you buy a new cartridge. I know that they are expensive but it will help. Also take some Rubbing alchohol and a q-tip...clean inside where the cartridge sits..that will help...this is for sure a bad ink cartridge
