Ink System Failure on a HP Photosmart C6280 All-in One


This is likely a cartridge problem except if the carriage is not moving at all. If you still have some of the used cartridges you can used them to trouble shoot by elimination ok. Or contact a nearby technician who has the cartriges to use them for trouble shooting. I strongly believe the one of the print carts is the culprit. Good luck

Ink cartridges


Go through your standard print procedure. File>print then look for the properties button which is usually on the top right of the window. Press Properties and look for either Printing in B/W or grey scale. That should prevent your color cartridges from printing. After you check that box, you should be able to print black only.

Ink empty cyan


Have you replaced the cartridge containing the cyan color in your printer?

You can deplete a single color. But if you think it is a false error message, I would try cleaning loose ink from the tray and cartridge itself. Especially on the contact areas. Brother printers are inexpensive and work well for small jobs, but ultimately jam, clog, and sometimes even break when run hard or doing large volumes.
