Question about HP PSC 1510 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Hp psc 1510 - only want black ink

I only print in black ink, never in colour. the colour cartridge is empty/dried-out and so the printer won't print at all. i cannot believe that i have to buy a new colour cartridge to print in black!
how can i get the printer to ignore the colour cartridge completely so that i can print?
thank you!

Hi Manavoc,

I will explain you the cause for it.

It prints in yellow first and then override with black for better quality. This is the reason your color ink gets empty.

Only blue printing


Expose the ink cartridges to some steam, this may clear the nozzles.
if it starts to work, repeat the steam thing and clean the cartridges from software.

Won't Print Color Ink


INK PROBLEM
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Orange cartridge light is flashing. I know the black cartridge is empty, but the colour cartridge is o.k. Why can't I print in colour?


Inkjet printers use a combination of inks to produce colors; while you may not realize it, your printer uses black ink to print colors as well, to darken the hue of a color. Otherwise, it would be limited to very "bright" colors. Replace the black cartridge, you will be fine.

Installed black ink but hp psc 750 keeps saying install colour and i only have black ink. Can you operate this printer without colour in.


Print cartridge
When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.
Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.
1. Open the top cover of the printer.
2. Remove the print cartridges.
3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth. Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.
5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.
6. Close the top cover.
7. Try printing again.
If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .
