Most cartrideges thes days have gold plated contacts on the back of them in order to tell the printer if the carrtridges are full or not. If the contacts are dirty on your printer this problem can occure.

Clean the contacts on the printer gentely with isopropyl alchol.....CD head cleaner etc.

The printer's lying to me


The printer requires both cartridges to have ink before the printer will initialize and operational. Even if you are only printing black and white both cartridge have to contain ink or the printer will error out. This is standard on all ink jet printers from every manufacturer. You will have to get ink before you can print.

My Pinnacle Pro 901 is set to print using black ink only but it keeps telling me I need to replace color cartridges and won't print.


You won't be able to print if one of the cartridges is out of ink. The printer needs all cartridges with sufficient ink levels to prevent damaging the printhead.

Every time a cartridge is replaced, all colors are primed simultaneously thus the need for all cartridges to have ink.

Printer wont acknowledge ink loading


Make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges. Refilled cartridges won't be able to register ink levels. If you are using original supplies, it could be just a slight cartridge communication error. Try the steps below:
  1. Make sure the printer is on. Open the printer cover.
  2. The carrier should move to its loading position. Open the latch and remove the cartridges.
  3. Close the latch.
  4. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to, and re-insert after 10 seconds.
  5. When the printer turns on, re-insert the cartridges. Close the printer cover.
  6. Check on your computer if ink level is acknowledged.
  7. Try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

The printer won't print. It says replace the color ink cartridge. All I want to do is print black and white.


You can only use the black ink cartridge without the color ink. But no need to replace them in your printer.
When you print just choose black and white for the printed text must be black not colored. But if you still received such notification...just try to replace the color ink cartridge to continue printing
Note: As per my experience. printer with exclusive black ink alone will damage the printer easily due to unbalance printing of ink

Won't print black ink


Try to print with other colors. Change the font color to red. If that printed, then you need to change cartridge for the black ink.

HP 3180 BLACK IS PRINTING LIGHT


Call HP.

There is an un-acknowledged issue with these printers having problems like that ....

They end up replacing some big parts inside it.
