that's not the right way too remove color. in your printing. put back all the colored cartridge you remove. go to printer properties. > settings > color management or details > then find the button that indicates that will like to print in a black and white scale. do not remove the colored cartridge.

Can it (HP deskjet F380 all in one) still print with only color cartridge or only black cartridge ? Or Should two cartridges remain together to print even one is empty ? Thanks


the answer to your question is yes,it can still print with only one cartridge installed.
If you do not have a replacement cartridge, and the quality of your printouts is not a concern, you can still print in ink-backup mode. Consider the following guidelines before printing in ink-backup mode:

  • If you remove the tri-color cartridge, printouts will be in grayscale.
  • If you remove the black or photo cartridge, the product will print more slowly and the colors in the printouts will vary.
    press OK button to clear the error message like cartridge missing after removing one cartridge.

Unable to print with new ink carts


Usually, that message means that your cartridge is dead. Try removing it, clean the electric contacts on it and the ones on the cartridge carrier. Put it back in. If that doesn't help, you will need to buy a new color cartridge.
If you do not have a replacement cartridge, you can still print in, what HP calls "ink backup mode". Simply remove the problem cartridge, and print with the remaining one, in this case, the black one.
  • If you remove the tri-color cartridge, printouts will be in grayscale.

Printer will only print color pictures in black and cyan


Hi, this printer color cartridge contains all colors in one. So if you can print with one color means that the whole cartrige is ok but one or more colors ended. And you should had a low ink message on screen if it was genuine HP. Best thing to do is to go and buy a new one cartridge and see how it will go. This cartridge is green color.

Color Ink Cartridge Problem


Hi,

Unplug the printer, and leave it unplugged for 5-10 minutes. Then if the printer is still complaining about the color cartridge when you turn it back on, then replace the print cartridge.

Color ink cartridge


Backup mode means printing with one cartridge. If the printer tells you "cartridge failed", it probably doesn't recognize it. You can try removing it from the printer and gently wipe the electric contacts on the cartridge with a dry cloth. Turn the printer off, turn it back on and reinsert the cartridge. If the message is still there, I suggest you buy a new color cartridge. You can also go to the store where you refilled your cartridges and ask for their opinion, they may be able to help too.

hi,
Ink-backup mode lets you continue printing with one print
cartridge when the other print cartridge has run out of ink.
Ink-backup mode allows the printer to operate using only one print cartridge. It is initiated
when a print cartridge is removed from the cradle.
Exiting Ink Backup mode
Install two print cartridges in the printer to exit ink-backup mode.


Cheers !!!!
