If this printer is like some of the HP printers I have serviced in the past, many printers like this use a tiny bit of color as a "primer" to make the black "blacker" and to prevent bleeding in systems where the color is dye and the black is pigment. A number of printers may allow a "use black only" in the driver settings, but many other printers will simply refuse to print if the color runs out, even if you are printing black and white. The short answer is, chances are, you need to replace the color cartridge.
You need to have both black and color cartridges installed with functioning electronics to use your printer. Sounds like your original color cartridge and the refilled color cartridge you purchased both have bad electronics. I recommend Cartridge World or Office Depot for cartridge refills because they electrically screen their cartridges before selling them. You need to buy either a new or refilled color cartridge for your printer to work.
I see you don't have much knowledge about printers. It always helps to know something about your printer.
It seem you have a color printer. Usually a color printer has two cartridges. Black cartridge and color cartridge. The color cartridge usually contains three colors; cyan, yellow and magenta.
If the black cartridge is empty, you won't see black text in the printed paper. Print a small photo and see. If it has all the colors, but looks dull (without proper black color), that means only the black cartridge is empty. If it is greenish, the magenta ink is missing. Generally orange colored printouts suggest cyan is missing. Likewise, purple color means the yellow ink is missing.
If you installed the printer properly using the CD from the printer manufacturer, you will be notified when the cartridge is empty or close to run out of ink. But if Windows automatically installed your printer, then the system won't give such information.
From the information you have supplied, I believe your blck cartridge is empty or missing.
Oh, I almost forgot to say, some manufactures sell some printers (for example some Canon Pixma models) with only the color cartridge.
Switch on the printer and open the printer cover. The cartridges will move to the middle. You can check whether the black cartridge is missing.
Do not hesitate to contact us for further help.
Just a shot in the dark, was it a refilled ink cartridge. I know HP has a problem detecting the remanufactured cartridges from time to time. And too, if it is not refilled cartridge perhaps you just have a bad cartridge. Oh, of course Julie remembered to pull the tape off of the bottom of the ink cartridge, correct? Hope this did some good, please leave rating, thank you kindly.
you can tell me plz which printer use u .......i hope u use both color & black ink cartridge.....go to printer setup .......???????if your black ink empty you change your near pc Or printer vender........
Did you set the date back in your system tray on your computer to something like 040704? Try taking out the cartridge and then unplugging the USB cord and the printer from the electrical outlet. You have to have the printer turned totally off with no connection to your computer. Make sure you have the date set back on your computer before you put the USB and electrical cords back in place. That printer will know it is the current date otherwise. Then with USB and power cords in place put in the cartridge and give it a try. If no go, you might try taking out that one and unplugging everything and then replugging and replacing with the second cartridge. I have read somewhere that the machine can remember 2 cartridges, so you may need a third, but I did not when I set the date back on my computer. Good luck with this. Let me know how it goes. I am still printing with my original color cartridge; it has been refilled twice since I originally figured out how to fool my printer. And that old black Office Depot one is going strong too.
sure..go to your print settings, and tell the machine to print in black only. That's a usual trick for when the color runs out, which is not unlike when it's missing. Of course, you might just want to replace the color cartridge, just to keep your printer happy, no? Got backup?
