Hi Angela

Well this is a problem with the cartridge and also the software.

1. Try to clean manually and see if you are getting all the colors (C,M,Y)
2. Install back in the printer and try to clean from software

1. Goto printer properties
2. Choose the color setting tab
3. check and see if you can find the color profile as RGB
4. Change it to CMYK profile

Restart the PC and try to print again.

HP 722C has quit printing black in color draft

WORKAROUND: Select EconoFast or Draft as the print quality setting in the printer properties. This will prevent the color cartridge from being used. - Or - Try another color cartridge. The color cartridge is used to print grayscale images in Normal or Best print modes, so if one color has run out, the printout will have the wrong tint. With a full color cartridge, the colors can be properly combined to create a composite black. CAUSE: When printing with Normal or Best as the print quality setting, the HP Deskjet 710C or 720C or 722C series printer will use the color ink to improve print quality output, even when printing a grayscale image.

Hello cmcclung147
You certainly didn' t mess up , I can assure you .
Generally , with power of and gently lifting the carriage and manually moving it from left to right and/or vice versa , plugging power back on , solves the problem . I succeeded that way with my 930C . Should work with your device .
Good luck !
Best regards ,

HP Deskjet 722c appears to print but the page is blank. New toner cartridges have been installed

If the clean test page shows streaked or broken colors, the printer or cartridges are not functioning properly. Note that HP cannot guarantee the quality of refilled or remanufactured cartridges. Follow the steps below to solve the problem:
  1. Remove and reseat the cartridges. Try printing again.
  2. Check ink levels, and if a cartridge is low on ink or out of ink, replace it and try printing again.
  3. Clean the cartridges. Depending on what printer you have, you can either print another clean test page or run a cleaning utility. Check your User's Guide for instructions. Try printing again.
  4. Clean the contacts, then try printing again. Click here to see how .
  5. Align or calibrate your cartridges (depending on what printer you have). Check your User's Guide for instructions.
  6. If none of the steps above have helped, clean the nozzle plate manually. Click here to see how .
  7. If the problem still has not been solved, replace the cartridges or service the printer. Click here to see how to decide which to do .

I have just replaced the color ink cartdrige in my HP Deskjet 722c printer and I tried to print a color picture in bond paper and it was a total mess

A new ink needs a little cleaning before using. Just dab lightly on a damp paper towel and look for a inch log stripe of each color on the towel. If all colors are not there it won't print very well and you should return the cartridge. Some have reported no yellow in their new cartridges.

I replaced both cartriges (Black and Color) and when I print, the yellow color does not print. Even on the test page, the color setion at the bottom is blank where the yellow color block should be printed....

You can dab the bottom of the color cartridge on a damp paper towel, check the streaks left behind, if there is no yellow either there is no yellow in the cartridge or it's just plugged. Dab it a few times on a wet towel, if still no yellow, you need another cartridge.

Printer problem

You'll need to clean the encoder strip, encoder wheel, paper feed rollers and the carriage rod (where the cartridges ride -plus lube this) and cartridge service station. If you can't figure out how to do this, you'll need a tech that knows how. It will get pretty involved and I would recommend getting a new machine because they have come down in price and you could replace this for very little.
