I just had this exact problem on my HP 5514. Black won't print after running out of black ink. New cartridge no good.
I tried everything-no good. I suspected the pinholes in the printhead were clogged with dried ink because I didn't change cartridge in time.
The fix that worked perfectly was when I hacksaw top off old black cartridge & removed all foam wicks so now I had a funnel(can see clear thru). I installed the cartridge & filled it with alcohol, printed page & did head clean; then printed few more pages. Problem cleared almost immediately. I then soaked up extra alcohol inside cartridge with paper towel. Removed modified cartridge & installed good one. I guess this could be done for colors as well. I don't know if this is a proper procedure, but it sure worked well for me.
I guess you should try to reset it ..and get the cartridge out and see if the toner (ink ) is getting out ..by pressing it (with the part where you removed the tape ) on some absorbent paper ..when it is working well it should leave a mark on the paper ..the mark should be not washed ...but real color and all... If it do not ..just use a syringe and blow air in the cartridge ..just to agitate it ..and make sure it is not dry .. Insert it back ..repeat the procedure until works ..and also if you have the procedure ..reset it .. http://www.ehow.com/how_6881778_reset-2600n-toner-chip.html
I have an HP Photsmart C4100 printer. I purchased remanufactured ink cartridges (both black and tri-colored) from Vivasmart. The black one works fine, but when I installed the tri-color, I got an error message that says "Print cartridge problem" The following print cartridge has a problem: Tri-color. And I can't print. The screen on my printer says "Remove and check color cartridge." I have done this several times and it still won't print. I have turned off the power, removed the cartridges, and unplugged the unit, but it still didn't help. Any suggestions?
The problem cannot BE solved. It's yet ANOTHER Vista screw-up. Original Problem: "No matter what I try - every page from Jarte prints out with an UNWANTED gray background. This does not always happen when I print from the web, make copies or print from Microsoft Word. I ran diagnostics on my printer HP PSC1510 and it's fine. Test pages print ok, too. Please help - I had Jarte on my last laptop (Windows XP), it worked very well and I liked it much better than MS Word." I emailed Jarte Tech support and got the following answer: "The problem you encountered is a bug in Windows Vista. You will see the
same problem when using WordPad on Windows Vista. As you have noticed,
not all programs are affected by the bug. The problem is occurring
because you are using a Windows color scheme that uses a gray
background color for text windows. Unfortunately, the only work around
is to specify white as the background color to use for text windows.
Hopefully, Microsoft will correct the problem in a future Windows Vista
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.
