Hp c6180 states cartridges missing or damaged


OK now this might seem bizarre, but did you go ahead and click the "Black Only" print option?

I have a C6180. Just installed all new cartridges. Tried to print and got the message that Cyan is empty. Tried all sorts of things. Then out of frustration clicked the Black Onl option. Document came out printed in color! Double checked with a picture that has lots of cyan colors. It all printed too! Go figure.

Hello.
Unfortunately there is no way around this. It is a feature of the printer to stop any air reaching the tubes to the print head from the cartridge, plus a way of making you buy more ink!
If quality is not an issue search on E-bay or a computer fair/market for some cheap compatible cartridges. I have seen them from $10-$20 each
I hope this helps Regards

Failure to print from computer in colour


I have a similiar issue that just started happening recently - the printer shows FULL inks but the PC thinks it has empty inks. I tried the * #, 123 reset hardware failures, but that didnt help. Printer run self diagnostics says all is fine....

I am using USB connections - and this has been fine for years, until now. Maybe a microsoft patch issue?

Black ink cartridge wont print, have installed a new ink refill still no joy. Will print in all other colours.


Well if you already installed a new black ink cartridge and still wont print, then try cleaning your printer head. It can be that the some ink was hardened and got stuck preventing you to print a black color.

Black wont print


How did you resetted the machine??
Did it gave you any error messages??
Try to take out the black ink cartridge and try to clean the contacts (the copper colored circles) with a cotton swab dampened with bottled water. (don't use tap water coz there are contaminants on the tap water might ruin the contacts). Send me a message if it still wont work
