Does the presence or absence of power (on/off) impact the life of the print cartridge?
An associate tells me that when the printer is not in use it should be turned off to protect the cartridges. Most of the time when I'm sitting at the computer I have the need to print 5-7 pages per session. 5-7 hours may go bye between sessions without the need to print. At the end of the day I shut the printer down although the PC remains up.
Should I be turning the printer on/off multiple times a day to protect the cartridges? or any other reason?

This error is normally associated with a supplies error. I have extracted information on this error from the HP 6L manual.
Error Codes Error 10 - Supplies Memory Error 10.XX.YY Exact format is dependent on printer modelThe printer is unable to read the electronic information (elabel) on the print cartridge. This helps track page count and life of consumable. XX Description 00 memory error on the cartridge or 01 memory device not found 10.00.00 Black print cartridge 10.00.01 Cyan print cartridge 10.00.02 Magenta print cartridge 10.00.03 Yellow print cartridge
Supplies used in newer printer models contain a memory chip. The information contained on this chip is dependent on the printer model and the supply. The error 10 indicates a problem with the printer obtaining the information from this chip. The chip may be missing or defective or contain incorrect information. There may be a problem with connection between the memory chip and DC controller. Turn the printer off/on to attempt to clear or reset the message. Remove and reinstall the supply, replace the supply.
Replace the memory chip cable/connector or the DC controller. How did we do?

This error message occurs when the print head life is over. Every print head is designed with a specific life time (it is purely a mechanical device). Once the life time is over you will get this error message.
I recommend you to calibrate the print head, if you have that option in the software or front panel display(if any). Also, you can try using a new set of cartridges (if you printer is ink jet)
Since white is the absence of all color and black is the presence of all colors, some printers are preset to not allow peinting at all in black if the color cartridges are not synced in for any number of reasons. Howerever, it's possible that when you press your button to print or (preferably) hold down the CTRL button and press the P key to bring up your printer, that you are not seeing the "Preferences" or "Settings" button. Ususally, if you press that you'll get a set of tabs, one of which will say "Color". Click that tab then you'll see the opportunity to print in "grayscale" and the chance to "Print only from Black Cartridge"

2 thumbs up actually decreases my rating and I'm looking at about 30 questions before I see yours which I can answer for "Free" meaning I get nothing for helpting you and 2 thumbs just decreases my rating.
Printers that execute high quality images cannot (actually will not) allow printing when the other printer cartridges are almost gone or gone. This is a built in defense against the printer heads drying out and much servicing and expense.
You simply do not own a printer of any kind and allow the color cartridges or black cratridges to run out (or even get close) without having th replacement cartridge at hand for immediate installation.
This is how the printer manufacturer protects itself from costly warranty repairs and lawsuits.
Go immediately and buy the color ink cartridge and install it.
Black is the presence of all colors
White is the absence of all color
Your printer must draw in tiny increments from the color certridges to keep the heads functioning when you predominantly use black printed documents.
Science strikes again.
For God's sake, please do NOT leave me 2 thumbs up and trash my rating incrememntally because you aren't happy about this.
Initially, determine if there is fuel and spark at the combustion chamber. Remove any of the sparkplugs and note if it is wet with fuel. Thereafter, it could be connected back to its wire and laid against any metal part and the engine cranked. Presence or absence of spark could then be tested.
Absence of fuel would then require checks on the fuel pump, fuel inject relay, associated wiring and safety interlocks.
Absence of spark would require checks of the IGN +12 to the coils (red/black) and the trigger to each coil from the ECU (gray/red & orange).
i assume you have installed the original cartridge, in this case you may need to reinstall the ink once again, the head contains a small chip that recognize the presence of the new ink, unless you are using a generic one which can also cause this issue
its best to leave all the cartridges in the printer even if they are empty. the printer will continue to print but with the absence of yellow any color printing might be off color. black and white printing should be unaffected.
