Question about HP OfficeJet V40xi InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Can I operate my HP v40xi without a color cartridge?

I need to know if there is a way to make my printer (v40xi) work with only a black cartridge installed and the other (tri-color) slot empty. I have the printing preferences set to black & white but can't get the printer to get past the error message stating that there is no color cartridge installed.

Hi,
I would like to inform you that there is no way to print with black cartridge alone. You need to install two cartridges to wok the printer. So I recommend you to install color cartridge and change the settings to print in black only.

I have an HP OfficeJet V40xi. My problem was getting an "cartridge black installed error" but it was properly installed! I am not try replacing with other cartridge yet...that might it be the...


The cartridge slots are not interchangeable so you will not put the color in the black etc.

Many HP printers will detect third party and re-filled ink cartridges and refuse to accept them. There is no way to override this in the software package.

I had a third party re-man ink cartridge work for two days and then the HP decided it didn't like it.

Is it possible to convert this printer so it only uses black ink and it operates without the color cartridges?


Hi,

The Photosmart printers work in Thermal Inkjet printing technology. This require all cartridges to be present with ink for printer to work.

You may disable the color printing feature using the printer properties, even though the color cartridge will still be in use.

Only Laser jet printers can work with Black cartridge alone.

Incorrect color cart error message after refill v40xi #78


There is something wrong with the electronics on your cartridge. Sounds like wherever you got it refilled didn't electronically test the cartridge to make sure it would function in your printer. You need to return the refilled cartridge either for your money back or a new refill.

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

Go to www.hp.com and let the website auto-detect your printer and download the drivers, however, this is pretty old printer.

Good luck.

Can this machine COPY from the Black Cartridge only.


Click Start - All programs - HP - HP Director/Solution center.
In HP Director/Solution center. Click Settings - print settings - printer settings . Click on the Colors tab. Enable the option Print in grayscale and Black print cartridge only.

This is the only way to print with single black cartridge.

Thanks
