Please try to check with the ink present in the cartridges and perform the following steps:

a) Turn the printer on.
b) Open the printer’s top cover.
c) After the print cartridges have moved to the center/home position of the printer, unplug the printer’s power cord from the electrical outlet.
d) Remove the print cartridges.
e) Using a dry, lint-free, clean cloth, wipe the print cartridge contacts, from the top to the bottom
f) The contacts inside the printer may also require cleaning. Using a dry, lint-free, clean cloth, gently wipe the contacts, from the top to the bottom
g) Plug the printer's power cord into the electrical outlet.



Now, perform these steps:

1. Verify that the unit is switched on. Unplug the all-in-one from power and disconnect the connection port.
2. Wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug in the power only.
4. Repeat steps 2-4 two more times.
5. On the third time after plugging the unit into power, reconnect the connection port from the all-in-one to your computer.

Try to check the functionality of the printer.

Black ink will not print on Photosmart C6150; Ink


I'd do the reboot of the printer.Turn it off,unplug for 60 seconds,plug it back in,turn it back on and see if the black will work.After plugging back in it should clean the print head and then you can do a test page to make sure.

Black ink cartridge wont print, have installed a new ink refill still no joy. Will print in all other colours.


Well if you already installed a new black ink cartridge and still wont print, then try cleaning your printer head. It can be that the some ink was hardened and got stuck preventing you to print a black color.

C6180 failed alignment test, will not print color properly


All colors need to be present to pass alignment. Usually what I see is the yellow is empty. You can blot the print cartridge on a damp paper towel to verify the inks are working and this also cleans the head.
