My printer will only print in red. Even with a brand new black cartridge. What can I do?


Color cartridge faulty, if you want color printouts replace new color cartridge.. Select "print in grey scale" in printing preferences,if you want to print only in back & white.

MY HP LaserJet 2840 has a brand new Toner cartridge. Now it won't print at all and we are getting a "OPC at end of life" prompt. What does this mean?


Imaging drum reach 20,000 (black only) or 5,000 (color), replace the image drum.

Supplies life
The life of the imaging drum depends on the number of black-only or color pages that print jobs
require. Imaging-drum life is also affected each time the device calibrates because calibrating causes the imaging drum to rotate. Imaging-drum life is measured in terms of number of rotations rather than number of pages printed.
The type and length of print jobs also affects drum life. A series of short print jobs uses more drum
life than an equivalent number of pages printed in a single large job. To extend drum life, print
multiple copies of a print job at one time rather than sending the same job to the device multiple times.
The life of a print cartridge depends on the amount of toner that print jobs require. When printing text at 5% coverage, black print cartridges last an average of 5,000 pages and cyan, magenta, and
yellow print cartridges last an average of 2,000 pages. High-capacity cyan, magenta, and yellow print cartridges last an average of 4,000 pages. (A typical business letter has 5% coverage.)

None of the cartridges can be empty if you want to print.
Even if you only want to print black, just black you need to
replace the other three cartridges.
Yes color laser printing is expensive.

They believe expired cartridges will damage the printer. If you change the date back on the printer and computer this will solve the problem and allow you to print.

No black color in test print sheet


You need to do a cartridge (nozzles) cleanup or to replace the black cartridge.
For the cleanup procedure:
Press Ink button
Using the up-arrow or down-arrow, select "Cleaning"
Press the "OK" button
Using the up-arrow or down-arrow, select "Black"
Press the "OK" button

The cleaning process will start. After this, if the result is not satisfactory, repeat the procedure for 2-3-4 times. If still not satisfied, you need to replace the cartridge with a new one.
Please notice that the cleaning procedure is consuming lots of ink !

Just put new color cartridges in and tested print and it showed all color bars however when i ask it to print it does not print out anything in black


You didn't say what brand/model of printer you are using, but a lot of printers nowadays have a color cartridge(s) and a separate black cartridge. Perhaps the black cartridge needs to be replaced, too?

Black printer ink in HP Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.
