This cannot be done! You need to have the colour carts in the mnachine otherwise it fails its startup diagnostics and will not print.

I have a Kodak ESP 3250. I always print Black Only, but after a few months I get a 3508 error code telling me to replace my color cartridge. I cannot use the printer, period!!! Since I only print...


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.

Have replaced black ink inMP150, cleaned ans aligned heads etc but still wont print in black. will print in blue have I disturbed another setting (black?)


Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts

The HP 6300 Officejet printer at my office will print black just fine, but will not print a drop of color. Even the on the test page the color sections are either blank or pale grayscale.


This is one of three problems. The ink cartridge is overfilled, it needs cleaning or alignment, or it is dried out and you need to purchase a new cartridge. If it is dried out, you cannot refill it. The sponge inside is dry and cannot be fixed. Another problem could be in your printer settings. Did you check to make sure that your setting are not on grayscale (black cartridge only). To do this, when you go to print, click File - Print - then click Properties. There should be a tab in that area that will tell you if it is on black ink only. Try to make sure the cartridges are clean and/or replace them. This usually fixes the problem. Cheers.

How do I get my first blank ink cartridge to work?


you really need to replace the empty cartridge...it's a protection for keeping your printhead from drying or else the micro nozzles will be clogged with dry ink. did u try setting the printer settings to use greyscale or black and white only?

Won't print unless all ink cartridges have ink.


Try changing it in the properties section under device settings
or go to color management if you have it and change the setting to black only,.

Your ink cartridges have dried out. Replace the black to confirm this prognostication and, if black works, replace color also. If you are into refilling ink cartridges youself try soaking the black one in 91% rubbing alcohol in a small ziploc type bag for several days. when the alcohol becomes ink colored, remove the cartridge from the baggie, dry it with tissue paper, reinstall it in the printer and up to 3 times run a clean the nozzles page until it prints a solid black line. Repeat with the color cartridge. Good luck.
