SOURCE: Black ink not working on HP C5180 Photosmart

Try a hard restart, which simply means unplugging the power cord of the printer, and replugging it after one minute has passed. If that does not work, then rerun the CD used to install the printer. Both techniques reprogram the electronics, to a certain extent.
You can also visit the HP website, to see what solutions are being offered for various printer problems. They probably have a number to call, in case you need to talk to a technician.
Hope these suggestions help you out.

SOURCE: HP C6280 says out of black ink

Something is wrong with your Blach carrier or connections. Use a bit of alcohol and clean the array of gold contacts where the Ink cartridge plugs in. Most of the pins are shutter and piezo control (get the ink on paper) but a few do other stuff like check ink level, # of hours runtime, etc. This is very common problem with inkjet printers. Hope this helps.
Also... rub the contacts on the printhead with a pencil eraser to make them shiny and bright.

Cheers!

SOURCE: I have a HP Photosmart Plus B209 a printer. The

You are one of many B209 owners with this problem. The B209 has a defectively-designed printhead. The HP site is clogged with complaints about it. The HP customer support chat people will ask you to disassemble your printer in order for you to read them several dates and code numbers. They will then tell you that your warranty has expired and they won't do anything to help you.
If you take your print head out of the printer you'll find a thick, gummy residue of black ink on it. I don't even want to think what that residue cost me with HP ink costing more than most precious metals. You can try cleaning it but the only solution is the purchase of a new print head. Or, you can try my alternative solution:
1. Open window 2. Throw HP B209 out window 3. Order non-HP printer on Amazon 4. Never buy HP again
If HP is going to sell a faulty product then they should stand behind it and make it right. It's clear from my 2 hours chatting with the HP man overseas that HP will not be doing this.

Why won't my hp photosmart 5510 d print black unless there is color on the page.


When printing a color image, black is usually made by combining the other three colors (cyan/magenta/blue). Check the black ink tank, replace it if empty, try a cleaning cycle if not empty.

My hp 5510 photosmart printer will not print in black


Make sure you have run a cleaning cycle before spending money replacing anything. Sometimes the print heads will get a little dry and a color or multiple colors will stop printing. Have you replaced the black cartridge recently? Make sure you have pulled all the tape off correctly. There is an air hole that needs to be opened usually under the tape that will prevent the ink from flowing out of the cartridge. Let us know what your results are after checking the cartridge and running a cleaning.

NOTE: You can also open the Printer Toolbox from the Print Properties dialog box. In the Print Properties dialog box, click the Features tab, and then click the Printer Services button.

Print a self-test report
1. Load A4 unused plain white paper into the input tray.
2. Press and hold the Cancel button and then press the Start Copy Color button.
The product prints a self-test report, which might indicate the source of the printing problem.
3. Make sure the test patterns show a complete grid and the thick color lines are complete.
• If more than a few lines in a pattern are broken, this might indicate a problem with the nozzles. You might need to clean the print cartridges.
• If the black line is missing, faded, streaked, or shows lines, this might indicate a problem with the black or photo print cartridge in the right slot.
• If any of the color lines are missing, faded, streaked, or show lines, this might indicate a problem with the tri-color print cartridge in the left slot.

Photo black ink runs out b4 black on HP Photosmart C6380 printer


The black ink cartridge is larger than the photo black cartridge and black is used in photos to make the darker colors. Black text takes much less ink per page.

HP Photosmart 3210xi - some colors (magentas) will not print


Remove the magenta cartridge, and try cleaning the head with alcohol, maybe with a small paint brush or an acid brush. It sounds like ink has dried and plugged up that head.

HP Photosmart, black ink running out too soon.


Not many. Black is also used to make color prints. HP's business relies on selling you ink cartridges, not selling printers.

How can I print Black only?


Hi

HP Inkjet printers work only if both the cartridges have ink unlike HP Laserjet printers.
If you want the printer to print only in black, Follow the steps

Start --->Control panel -- >Printers and faxes ---->Right click on the printer icon (HP c5100) select printing preferences.
Under printing prefences there u will see an option to print with black or print in gray scale.

Note:HP Inkjet printers like Photosmart C5180 will work only both the cartridges have ink.

Thanks
Riz
