Re: Messege: Yellow Cartige is low

You can specify that a print job prints in black and white in the properties screen when you print something. You may even be able to save it as a default in the printer driver default printing settings. Unfortunately I've never seen a colour laser be able to ignore it's color cartridges before, you may be forced to replace that empty cartridge.

Clean the Printhead & Print a test page by doing the ff:

1. Press the Ink Management button press the Up or down arrow key to select Test Print, then select Print Quality press OK and press Black or Color START. Check all the colors including the black & check if there are any missing dots and if there are any colors not printing correctly.

2. Press the Ink Management button on the control panel and select cleaning press ok

3. Press the up or down arrow key to select Color press ok and press Black Start.

*After the cleaning process the printer will ask you if the quality is OK, press up or down to select yes or no, and it will ask you whether black or color is ok, once you have selected you're answer press Black or Color START to print another test page. Compare the 1st and 2nd test page if it's improving, you may need to do this 3-5 times or until you get a better quality

Hope this helps.

Color printing, not so colorful. Even with new cartridges

Your model has some print quality pages built in to help diagnose and solve print problems.

1) Press <Menu>
2) Press <Down> button to highlight "Diagnostics"
3) Press the <checkmark>
4) Press <Down> button to highlight "PQ Troubleshooting"
5) Press <checkmark> to print the pages

If you see print-quality defects on the print-quality-troubleshooting pages, calibrate the printer. To calibrate the printer (optimize print quality):

1) Press <Menu>
2) Press <Down> button to highlight "Configure Device"
3) Press <checkmark>
4) Press <Down> button to highlight "Print Quality"
5) Press <checkmark>
6) Press <Down> to highlight "Full Calibrate Now"
7) Press <Checkmark>

I hope this helps!

Printer will not print dut to other color cartige. being empty.

The color cartridges print text that appears black by mixing the three primary colors (cyan, magenta, and yellow) to make composite black. To achieve a realistic black, large quantities of colored ink are used. Because black cartridges use much less ink to create a similar shade of black, they print more pages in black than the color cartridge.
If the color cartridges on the printer are next to empty, you will not be able to get perfect prints at all.

Please have the cartridges replaced to do the printing jobs again.

Black cartiage is not working


Check the black cartridge it will refill or not? open the black cartridge and shake it and reinsert. Check with printer options, if any option selected with color only uncheck it and select the best quality option.

Good Luck

Konika Minolta 2430 DL won't let me print

Look through the menus on the printer for a setting for "Low Toner" -- the choices of what to do are usually either "continue" or "stop" or something similar (my 2430DL has this option setting) -- set this option to "Continue".
My 15 year old HPs also have a similar setting. However, this will keep it printing when the black runs out, so you will need to check your print production run visually as you go along to make sure the quality is what you need

Check the following information please.

General print quality issues

Solving issues with color documents This section describes issues that can occur when you print in color. Color document issues Problem Cause Solution Only black is printing when the document should be printing in color.

c00659983.gif Color mode is not selected in your program or printer driver. Select color mode instead of grayscale mode. The correct printer driver might not be selected in the program. Select the correct printer driver. The device might not be correctly configured. Print a Configuration page.

One or more colors are not printing, or are inaccurate.

c00659984.gif Sealing tape might be on the print cartridges. Verify that the sealing tape has been completely removed from the print cartridges. The media might not meet HP specifications. Use a different paper, such as high-quality paper that is intended for color laser printers. The device might be operating in excessively humid conditions. Verify that the device environment is within humidity specifications. One or more print cartridges might be low. If you are using non-HP print cartridges, no messages appear on the device control panel or in the HP Toolbox. Replace any low print cartridges. The control panel is set for override. Replace low or empty print cartridges. A color is printing inconsistently after you load a new print cartridge.

c00659985.gif Another print cartridge might be low. If you are using a non-HP print cartridge, it might be low or empty but you will receive no indication.

Can't print without black Ink

From HP's website:
The printer will not operate unless all six ink cartridges are installed. Also, HP cannot guarantee the quality of refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges.

Try this::
Leave the empty cartidge in and go to print, select the printer, click on preferences, then the paper/Quality tab. there select color and best. This way you wil be able to print your document.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Ink cartridge problems

The printer is working again - I exchanged the ink cartridges yet again, and finally the printer accepted them. Still don't know why the problem developed.
