Question about HP PhotoSmart C4480 All-in-One Printer InkJet
No, the water has nothing to do with it. Somewhere in a print dialog or perhaps in the printer driver, something changed to grey.
Try printing an ordinary black text document. Before you click "Print", look for "properties" or "Printer setup". Somewhere in there something got changed. Perhaps you can find a "default" button in a dialog box to restore the printer to factory settings.
MIGHT help (probably not) to shut down the Mac, power down the printer, and then start both up. Just an idea.

This is a solution which has been suggested on another site, this has not been tested by myself so no promises.
1. Turn the printer off.
2. Remove all memory DIMMs or third-party DIMMs from the printer. (Do not remove the firmware DIMM in slot J1.)
3. Remove all EIO devices from the printer.
4. Turn the printer on.
5. If the error no longer exists, install each DIMM and EIO device one at a time, making sure to turn the printer off and back on as you install each device.
6. Replace a DIMM or EIO device if you determine that it causes the error.
7. Remember to reconnect all cables that connect the printer to the network or computer.
8. If the error persists, replace the firmware DIMM.
Hope it helps, as I said, not tested personally.

SOURCE: Printer won't print black
When you go to print check to see in your print preferences settings to see if color or black and white is checked. Could also be the specific program's print options you are using to print the pages.

To customer of HP deskjet 990cki: I purchased the HP photosmart Plus B209 ~ January 2010. 3 months into, I have learned that when the color ink that you don't use evaporates, the black ink will not work at all, no matter what you adjust or clean.To make it work you have to purchase more color ink...on & on & on..$$$$. Neither HP nor Best Buy will refund my investment. Spoken with HP customer service reps. in the Philippines & Canada both being outside of the US. NO customer satisfaction. No refunds. I suggest Boycotting both corps.
