Hp 2540 deskjet. Just replaced BOTH cartridges with genuine HP ink 60. Printer still flashes on the cartridges being empty. Error message. I cannot print anything. I can scan but that is all.

Per HP: After installing a new print cartridge, a message appears on the front panel that the print cartridge is low on ink. This may be caused by installing the cartridges with the power turned off. Cartridges should always be installed with the power turned on.

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 an HP Deskjet 6980. After changing the black ink cartridge i tried to print. The printer takes the paper but doesnt print, just the Power and the resume lights are blinking. If I press the resume...

The printer might be working but the cartridge is not connected properly. Just open your printer, remove the cartridge and replace it back in its right position.
