Flap of ink cartridges open all the time while printing. how to fix it


1. A laserjet 2600 doesn't use "ink cartridges".
2. The toner cartridges are supposed to be open while printing.
3. With the printer printing, how do you know the flaps are open?
The printer will only print with all the covers closed. You are prevented ....from seeing the cartridges while printing.

I have only black toner, colors are out. How can I keep printing? It sends a message: "replace supplies".


You need a supply of ink in both cartridges in order to print. Even if you are only printing black ink and there is a black ink cartridge with ink in it, your printer will not print without the color catridge installed and it has to have a supply of ink in it. I wish I had better news for you, but unfortunately I don't.

My boss want to replace the black ink cartridge for one that prints color. Can this be done with the HP 12-a cartridges? HP Laser jet 1022


Unfortunately laser printers don't work this way. The laserjet 1022 was designed for black and white prints only. In order to do color printing with a laser printer you will need to purchase one that is designed to print in color. The laser printers work a bit differently than the inkjets - the laser printers have 4 toner cartridges, one each for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black, that work together to print a full color page. With the old inkjets you could just replace a black cartridge with a color one.

So, short answer: Sorry but no you can't make a laserjet 1022 print in color. :)

I would recommend looking at an entry level color laser printer from hp, such as the CP2025 (http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF25a/18972-18972-3328060-15077-236268-3673580.html) if you are looking into purchasing a color laserjet.

Hope this helps

My hp Color Laserjet 3550 Printer wont print black when it is out of color ink


The 3550 won't print in any color if any of the colors are out. You'll have to replace the color ink that's empty to get it to print.

In the future, if you're just printing black and white, you can select "Print in Grayscale" from the print properties to just use the black ink cartridge, which will help the color cartridges to last longer.
