Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP Photosmart - Out of color, but only need black. Can I?

My HP C6180 is out of magenta, but I only need to print in black. I went to properties and selected grayscale w/black cartridge only, but it still tells me that it cannot print until magenta cartridge is replaced. Is there any way around this? Thanks in advance for any help!

    i tell it to print in gray scale all the time thinking it was using the black cartridge - I checked my cartridge levels this morning and the colors are almost empty, but black is FULL.

    I have the same problem. No color in one cartridge, All I want to do is print in black. This unit is costing a fortune each time we have to print jobs.

    My wife has the same type of problem. As far as I know You can not print in only black if one of your colors is empty.

Hp c6180 states cartridges missing or damaged


OK now this might seem bizarre, but did you go ahead and click the "Black Only" print option?

I have a C6180. Just installed all new cartridges. Tried to print and got the message that Cyan is empty. Tried all sorts of things. Then out of frustration clicked the Black Onl option. Document came out printed in color! Double checked with a picture that has lots of cyan colors. It all printed too! Go figure.

The lt magenta and magenta just quit printing between pages


1. Check if the cartriges are correctly installed:
Installing the Ink Cartridges

2. Print a diagnostic page and clean print heads, using the printer cleaning utility:
Color Mix or Missing Colors on the Diagnostic Page
Repeat if needed.

3. If this still doesn´t solve you problem, try resetting the printer and manually cleaning the cartrigdes as advised in this FAQ:
Ink Cartridge is Missing, Incorrectly Installed, or Not Intended for Your Device' Error Message is Displayed on the Printer
