I would suggest removing the ink cartridge (careful because ink is permanent and if it gets on your hands it's difficult if not impossible to get off) wear gloves if you have them. Fold up a paper towel several times, soak it in a shallow pan of water and set the cartridge on the paper towel for a couple of minutes. You want to set the copper looking thing on the paper towel just for a couple minutes. Then remove it and place it on a dry paper towel ,that you have folded up a few times don't wipe it blot it with the dry paper towel. When it is dry set it on another folded up paper towel and press down slightly and you should see three distinct colors on the paper towel. Of course it is the color cartridge you will be doing this too. If you don't see three distinct colors appear try the procedure again and if it doesn't work after the second time I would return the cartridge to wherever you purchased it. Good Luck.

Hi i have a hp officejet 4355 all in one printer at my place. i m having problem fixing with the cartridge as it is showing error. pls guide


Problems with Hewlett Packard Officejet 4355 printing can often be due to issues with the cartridges. The printer has two cartridges, one black and white, and one color. Both can be physically inspected for problems. The printer also has a self-test report to determine if there is a non-obvious problem with the cartridge. The report can provide valuable information, including status.

  • 1

    Take the black ink cartridge out of the slot on the right. Be careful not to touch the ink nozzles or the copper contacts.

  • 2

    Look at the cartridge and make sure that the plastic shipping tape isn't still attached. There shouldn't be any tape covering the ink nozzles.

  • 3

    Replace the black cartridge and then perform Steps 1 and 2 on the color cartridge. The color cartridge is the one on the left side.

  • 4

    Print a self-test report. Load paper in the tray and press "Setup." Press "2" and then "4." The HP Officejet 4355 will print a report. Make sure the lines of color extend across the page. Missing, faded or streaky lines can indicate a cartridge failure. If the color bars don't show as black, cyan, magenta and yellow, you should clean the cartridges.

  • 5

    Press "Setup" and then press "6" and then "1." The print cycle will commence. Allow it to complete and then print another test report. If the test still shows errors, replace the cartridges.

    Installing only one printer cartridge


    suggest you install a color cartridge and set up the printer for color. When the color cartridge runs out of ink, you should be able to continue printing in black only.

    My printer is printing in pink color how can i change it to black


    Sounds like your black cartridge is either empty or clogged. Take out the black cartridge and press the print head against a moist paper towel. You should see a nice black rectangle, if you don't you could try placing the print head on a wet paper towel for a few minutes to wick out the ink (ink may seep through the paper towel so beware what surface you do this on). If after this there is still no ink flowing, buy a new cartridge.

    Hp psc 1210xi- the black ink cartridge appears to be out- i have a good color cartridge-how do I get the error off of my printer and print with my color cartridge?


    1. Take out the black cartridge once you've determined that you are completely out of black ink. You'll have to rely on the dark hues from the color cartridge to print in black.
    2. Adjust the printer software settings. Once you take out the black cartridge, your printer's software will typically warn you that you are missing a cartridge. Follow the instructions for your printer to allow the printer to print without the black cartridge. Then set the printer to print in black and white, not color. This overrides the black cartridge and allows the printer to access the dark hues of the color cartridge.
    3. Print a test page to ensure that your printer now prints black using the color cartridge.
    4. Print your documents. Bear in mind that your documents may not appear as black as normal. Still, they should be dark enough to pass for black, depending on how much color ink you have and the strength grade of the ink.

    I bought new ink black and color but i try to print in pink and i can't how can i print in pink


    Hi alexgallo01
    Do you get other colours except pink?
    If that is the case,reasons could be:
    1. there is not enough RED or BLUE in the cartridge.
    2. you haven't selected pink colour on the text or images you are trying to print.
    If you are typing a document highlight the text you want in pink, and choose PINK color for the font.
    Then print the document. The printer will use color closest to your choice, if it does not have the exact color.
    Hope this will help.
    If it help you, please give a rating
    Cheers

    HP printer not printing true color all of a sudden.


    Altho the cartridge is new, you may have used all of the ink of one color. Pictures take an enormous amount of ink to print and all three primary colors are used to create the hues and colors indicated on the picture. Try a new color cartridge and see if that works.

    Everything's magenta!



    Check in your printer driver settings "advanced" section, and see what the presets are. if the RGB or CYMK settings have a slider, see if the magenta is set at 100%. If it has a slider, try it at 90%, 80%, etc until you have a less pinkish hue. You can then create a printer profile which will work with the photo paper you are using.

    Different photo papers can cause hues like this.
    Also, you can remove pink any unpleasant hues with most photo image editors through color correction.

    It's possible that you have a contaminated cartridge...especially if it's a refilled tri-color cartridge.

    Yellow Hue when color copying


    I understand your situation, however let me explain you that whenever you try to make a copy or print, yellow cartridge takes part and provides its color in all the aspects. Please do check that you use the HP ink cartridges and try to clean the cartridges for every 15 days as this may reduce the issues of colors.
