Re: RE:Cannot print in documents

It's one of two problems, either the nozzles in the cartridge are clogged or your printing preferences are set to "print in grayscale." To clear the nozzles try running the printer through a "deep cleaning" cycle from the printer's maintenance screen (available from the printer's properties). To check the printing preferences go to the printer's properties, as well, from Start > Control Panel > Printers & Faxes > right-click on the printer and choose Printing Preferences. Make sure to uncheck "Print In Grayscale."

Compaq IJ650 ink jet printer will not print color.

Just because it’s new does not mean New Old Stock. Your print head is plugged. No if or buts about it. Contact HP and tell them you situation. If they don’t help you, box it up and take it back. Buy an Epson.

Wrong colours!

Hi Dannydoda,

I understand that, you are using different compatible ink cartridges and having problem with colors.

HP printers has a small built in firmware, which can detect the original ink cartridges and the ink level.

Using other compatible ink cartridges may damage the print heads of the printer.

I suggest you to replace the ink cartridges with original or Genuine HP cartridges.

You can also try some of the steps to fix the issue as given in the web link.

please click on the web link given below and perform the steps carefully.

This should fix the issue.
Have a great day!

IJ650, Color and black print cartriges are out of sync.

Try changing the printer cable. Also have you cycled the printer on and off? Are yo using genuine manufacturer cartridges? The possibility is the paper feed rollers may need to be cleaned. Some are accessable and some are not. If you can see them try cleaning them with a rag and some rubbing alcohol.
