Question about HP PSC 1315 All-In-One InkJet Printer

HP PSC 1315 Printer

I changed cartridges from those that came with the priner HP 28 (color) and HP 27 (black). The 27 and 28 replacements were not available, so I bought the HP 57 (color) and HP 56 (black), which, according to the card that came with the computer are supposed to work. The black seems to work just fine, but the color does not. Red prints as a magenta, green as blue, and yellow hi-lights are not picked up at all. I have cleaned the cartridge heads with alcohol and all three colors appear, but print quality remains unchanged. It seems to me that either the HP 56 is not compatable with the PSC 1315, or that I have a defective ink cartridge. Any suggestions? G

My HP 1315 still prints black and white just fine; however, it no longer prints in color. I have replaced the color cartridge, removed the celophane from the cartridge, cleaned the printer, and alligned...

Open printer properties.
Start --> Printers and Faxes --> (Right-click your printer and select properties)



Check whether you have selected 'Black & White' option for Color property in 'Printing Preferences' (in General tab) and 'Printing Defaults...' (in Advanced tab).

Set it to Color option.

Best of luck!

I am unable to insert the Ink Cartridges in HP 1315 Printer


Make sure you've got either 56 or 27 black and 57 or 28 colour cartridges. See here:

You "pop" them down then withdraw the old ones. Put the new ones in angled slightly upwards then click them up into place. The raised plastic on top of the cartridges will prevent installation into the wrong ports. If you're trying to put in a 58 photo cartridge it goes into the black port.

Good Luck!

What number is the ink cartridge

The ink cartridges for the 1200 Series can be either the high capacity HP 56 Black (C6656A) and HP 57 Tri-color (C6657A) or the low capacity HP 27 Black (C8727A) and HP 28 Tri-color (C8728A).

I hope this helps.

Is there a way to print in b&W when the printer is telling me that I need to replace the color cartridge? It is a HP 1315

In some printers it is not possible to print without both catridges working. However, yours may not be one of them.
When you print, make sure you go into 'Print Properties' and scour the options until you find one that lets you select 'Black and White' only. Grayscale ususally uses the color cartridge, at which point, the printer will notify you that you need to change the cartridge.
If switching to pure black and white printing is not working for you, then yes, you do need a new cartridge.

Flashing light check print cartridge

You must replace all ink carts with new ones at the same time. Yeah, this how HP makes its money.
