HP won't print black, but other colors work. New refill kit...

I have an HP Deskjet 842C that won't print text in black. I installed all parts of a color refill kit. All colors work fine, except black. Do I need a new cartridge? I used a Premium series kit made by Stratitec.

I purchased a c6180 in Jan 09 have just got the black working fine. After pulling the nachine apart, thinking maybe to soak the head, found micro pump for ink air in black line Run copy black only (took maybe 12x25 times) then head clean Try head clean after 50 copies Voila! Black Cannot rule out that reseating all connections helped

My HP DESKJET 842C prints test page in Black and white only not in color, how do I test my Color cartridge is working or not?


try to do the : You can check the ink levels here:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02693389&tmp_task=useCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lang...

The driver for this printer, when used within Windows 7, is built-in or 'in-OS' so you do not have access to the HP solution center or HP Toolbox.

Printing the self-test report will show how the ink is dispensed and what levels of ink are available. If on this report there is nothing shown, the issue is likely related directly to the cartridges rather than a software issue.

If this is the case, visit this article and browser towards the bottom:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bud02948&tmp_task=useCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=...

There are steps on how to clean the cartridges as well as the underside of the carriage in case there is and debris or interferrance causing this issue.

Installed new black cartridge in Deskjet 810C printer and after doing this it will only print in pink color. Please help.


Make certain that the cover is off the jets - if you forgot to pull the strip off or it broke leaving part of the tape on the cartridge, it won't work. Try to do a clean process on the cartridge. If that doesn't work, and you don't have another printer to try the cartridge in, return it to the place you bought it and get another new one. If the printer is printing pink, the color cartridge is probably empty also so that it cannot make black from the other colors. These sound like refilled cartridges - OEMs would have failed with some form of error code or warning.

Printing with only the Black ink cartrige.


Yes. The printer won't operate without both cartridges installed, even if one is empty.

Colored text printing


The printer assumes that the color cartridge is good, and is trying to print with the dead color cartridge.
See if there is a setting for your printer under the control panel, printer, and go to printer properties.
See if you can select to print BLACK only.
I know they have this option for some Canon Printers, but not sure with the HP Printer Drivers.
Worst case senerio, Highlight all of the text, and change the color to BLACK before printing. You can always just pick up a cheap refilled cartridge at Staples since it wont be used a lot, the quality isnt going to make much difference.

Good luck.
Hope this helps.
