Question about HP OfficeJet K80 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Changed the color and black & white cartrigeges. The message now states "remove and check color cartridge" I put in a new 78 color and a new 45 black & white. Fax prints fine but computer will not even print b&w
1)Clean cartridge print-heads (GENTLY) with meths or iso propyl alcohol (or cartridge flush solution from ink refillers).
2) clean contacts on side of cartridge with contact cleaner soln (Maplins or Tandy) and a fine brass brush BE GENTLE.
k80 should now recognise and align your cartridges.
K80 is very fussy

I had the same problem, and it seems to have corrected itself. I too, installed a new "45" black cartridge and got the message to remove and check color cartridge. After I removed it and cleaned it the message stayed on the display for about 5 minutes and then asked me to "align cartriges." After I aligned them I had no problems.

I cleaned the vertical centerpost (you'll see it when the cartidge is out)with a small amount of acetone (nail polish remover) on a Qtip & it works fine now....must be some kind of circuit that needs to be closed and the ink on it kept it open....
