Hi!

There are two ways to make your cartridge work again.

The first one will be basic....turn on the printer...remove the black cartridge from the printer.. using a moisten cloth, clean gently the contact terminal of the cartridge..after letting it air dry for a couple of seconds return the cartridge.. then try printing again..

The second one is to reset the ink cartridge.. how?

1. While your printer is on.. disconnect the usb cable from the back of your printer.
2. Remove the cartridges.
3. Wait until the message "Insert Cartridge" display on the control panel.
4. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.
5. Wait for 60 seconds.
6. Plug the power cord at the back of the printer...If printer does not automatically on..press the "Power" button.
7. Reinsert the cartridge and close any open doors of the printer.
8. If prompted to Calibrate, do so..
9. Reconnect the usb at back of the printer...and try printing again..

After that you can print easily.

If you find this information helpful....Please rate this solution and vote on this on the YES below..thanks..

I have a printer HP c5180 all in one, only have black ink , not color, i dont want print in color . can I use the printer black and white (not color) only?


You can go into the print properties and set it to print black only, however if any of the color cartridges are empty the printer may not print until you replace whichever cartridge is empty.

Complete the following steps to resolve this issue.
Step one: Check the printin grayscale setting
If the self test page printed in color, the ink cartridgesare okay, and the ink levels are well above empty, the printer software hasprobably been set to print in grayscale. Follow the steps below to check thissetting:
  1. In the software application you are trying to print from, click File, then Print. The Print dialog opens.
  2. Make sure your printer is selected, then click Preferences. The printer Preferences dialog opens.
  3. Select the Color tab, then make sure that Print in grayscale is not selected.
  4. Try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue.
    • If the issue is resolved, you do not need to continue with the rest of the instructions on this page.
    • If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next step.
Step two: Check the inkcartridges
NOTE:- HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HPink.
  1. Check the ink cartridges to determine if they have been refilled. If they have been refilled, try replacing them with genuine HP ink cartridges.

    • Each icon corresponds to the cartridge that is the color of the icon. The icons are also in the same order, from left to right, as the cartridges in the printer.
    • If an icon is empty, the corresponding cartridge may need to be replaced soon.
    • The ink levels in non-HP, refilled, and remanufactured cartridges cannot be read by the printer. Instead of an icon, a question mark is displayed for these cartridges. HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. Printer service or repairs required as a result of printer failure or damage attributable to the use of non-HP ink will not be covered under warranty.
  1. Try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue. If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.

How can I print Black only?


Hi

HP Inkjet printers work only if both the cartridges have ink unlike HP Laserjet printers.
If you want the printer to print only in black, Follow the steps

Start --->Control panel -- >Printers and faxes ---->Right click on the printer icon (HP c5100) select printing preferences.
Under printing prefences there u will see an option to print with black or print in gray scale.

Note:HP Inkjet printers like Photosmart C5180 will work only both the cartridges have ink.

Thanks
