Hello.

Give this a try - from HP Support:

(1) Open the printer
(2) Remove the color ink cartridge from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water to thoroughly clean the print head.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now

If that does not work then the print head will need to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

    ok, so now it works but what about tomorrow? I have done this before and the next day the problem is back.

    so now it works, but what about tomorrow? I have done this at least 3 times before and the next day the color does not print again. I have thrown away brand new cartridges thinking that would help.

    If it continues to be a problem, you'll probably need a new printhead. Sometimes service or printer replacement is the only alternative.

    Contact a service center in your area to evaluate if it would be cost-effective. Good luck.

My HP Officejet 6210 has a message reading "Remove


Check that the HP all-in-one print queue is not paused (Windows) or stopped (Macintosh). If it is, choose the appropriate setting to resume printing. For more information about accessing the print queue, see the documentation that came with the operating system installed on your computer.
Check the USB cable. If you are using an older cable, it might not be working properly. Try connecting it to another product to see if the USB cable works. If you experience problems, the USB cable might need to be replaced. Also verify that the cable does not exceed 3 meters (9.8 feet) in length.

HP 722C has quit printing black in color draft


WORKAROUND: Select EconoFast or Draft as the print quality setting in the printer properties. This will prevent the color cartridge from being used. - Or - Try another color cartridge. The color cartridge is used to print grayscale images in Normal or Best print modes, so if one color has run out, the printout will have the wrong tint. With a full color cartridge, the colors can be properly combined to create a composite black. CAUSE: When printing with Normal or Best as the print quality setting, the HP Deskjet 710C or 720C or 722C series printer will use the color ink to improve print quality output, even when printing a grayscale image.

I just loaded new HP 94 and HP 97 ink cartridges in my HP 6210 Officejet. I went through the alignment process and received a sheet that had colors, but no black ink. The printout indicated the alignment...


Make sure all the protective tape on the Black cartridge has been removed. Also are the inks re-filled? I have seen many re-filled cartridges fail in a similar maner.

Can I disable the color? It's empty but black is full


even if it is empty, most printers require that you have the color cartridge installed. you have to go into the printer settings and change it there to print only black copy.
