Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Color Cartridge out of ink - override/print in grayscale?

The light cyan cartridge on my HP C6180 printer has run out - and the printer is telling me I have to replace it before printing anything, even in grayscale. I only print in black and white, and do not have the possibility of replacing the cartridge for the foreseeable future.

(I don't want to buy new cartridges where I am due to the onerous costs, so have to have them shipped/brought from the US)

Can I override the command in any way, just so I can print in grayscale?

Printer will not print if any color is out. Just won't. They are set up like that.

USUALLY there is a setting in the printer setup or propperties that you can specify gray scale right before printing. It normally is on the same screen that print preview is offered. Search the menu items for it.

This model printer has only two slots for ink cartridges. One is for a black ink cartrigde and the other is for a tri-color cartridge which contains cyan, magenta and yellow inks.

I had the blue ink leak inside my C6180 printer and now it won't print in blue. How do I fix this? Thanks


What you really saw was a really light blue or "cyan" color. Right?

Replace the Cyan Ink cartridge.

Your Cyan ink cartridge leaked it's ink out, and now it is dead.... Bad cartridge, if it was "brand new" (or nearly brand new), ***** to the retailer that sold it to you, they should replace it for free. Have invoice handy, ask to speak to the "manager" or "boss" (a "supervisor" is still a "peon", and can't make decisions like that).

If they give you the run-around, ask to talk to the OWNER! If they shut u down (and/or **** u off), and the store is local (within driving range) bring the printer into the store (dripping ink and all) and raise holy hell. You'll be surprised how fast they "throw" ink cartridges (even new printers) at you to get rid of you 8^). Nothing smells of death more, to a sales person or manager, than an irate customer on the sales floor!

BTW, You'll want to clean up any excess "blue"/cyan ink that was leaked inside your printer, or you'll get ink blotches on you printouts.

Let me know if this help ya! Cheers...

Cannot print in a cyan color after having the cyan cartridge refilled. How do I cure this problem?


Often these newer style of ink cartridges utilize a chip which makes it that much harder to find a good compatible ink cartridge to work.

You can follow this link for a run down of replacement ink cartridges, genuine brand HP or Compatibles and give a replacement cartridge a try to see if it fixes it:

Photosmart C5280. Instructions on photo cartridge 348 say remove both black and colour cartridges, then install photo cartridge in right hand cartridge holder. Printer screen then tells me to install...


Your printer uses the following cartridges:

HP 74 - Black ink
HP 75 - Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow ink
HP 99 - Photo Black, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta

You need Photo Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta to print photos. To accomplish this you install the HP 99 photo cartridge where your HP 74 black cartridge usually goes and you keep the HP 75 color cartridge where it's at. I don't know why your printer told you to remove both cartridges, then reinstall the HP 75 color cartridge.
