Hi,

To determine if the cartridge set can produce the correct basic colors, run the "Clean The Print Cartridges" function under Services in the printer driver properties. The cleaning process will produce black, cyan, magenta, and yellow if both cartridges are good. If one or more of the colors is missing:
1. A cartridge has failed or is empty.
2. The print nozzles may be plugged, i.e. dried out or not being cleaned properly by the service station.
3. The cartridge and carriage electrical contacts may be dirty.
4. The printer may have failed.
If there is an incorrect color, the ink is mixed inside the color cartridge.

-- Do not continue until you have worked through any issues revealed above. --

After establishing that the printer is capable of producing the basic color set, print from a software application. If you are not getting the expected colors, consider these possibilities:
1. The software is not configured properly.
2. Uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver.
3. The printer may have failed.

I dont have ink yet but i still have black.. what will i do now if i print black and white but when its printed it turns to pink? hope to hear back from you..ty


Hi karencruz417...

If you want to print only in black, then what you will need to do is click print and when the window pops open to show your printer you will click on "Properities or Preferences", the when that window opens you will click on the tab "Color", then another window will open and you will put a check the box "Grayscale", then mark the circle with a dot on the words "Black Ink Cartridge Only"
Now you are ready to use the black ink only and no Pink will show up

Just chaned ink cartridge and every thing printed out pink clean the pink and now nothing is printing tried cleaning the head and did the nozzle check and still not printing


It seems to me, if you have changed your colour cartridge that is, that you do not have enough black ink in your black ink cartridge, so you should change this also.

I have a hp 6500. It has started printing pink instead of black.


Either:
* printers mix in a bit of "colour" ink when you request BLACK,
so that the colour ink-jets do not dry-out. So, since your BLACK has become EMPTY, all you get is PINK,

or,

* some printers mix colours to produce BLACK-ish colour.
Check that your CYAN and YELLOW ink-cartridges have not gotten to be EMPTY.

Printer does not print in color but only prints in


Run a "print-head-cleaning-cycle" -- the ink inside the cartridges is not getting through the ink-jets, and is not reaching the paper.

Either that, or the electronics inside the ink-jets are malfunctioning, i.e., not telling the ink-jets to shoot the ink out.

Why must you have pink ink if you want to print in black only


unfortunately it was programed into the firmware of the printer to have ink in all cartridges. if you desire to print in black only after the cartridge is replaced then go into the printing preferences and under either advanced or color select print in greyscale then black ink only apply the change and from that point on all docs will print using black ink only

My printer is printing in pink color how can i change it to black


Sounds like your black cartridge is either empty or clogged. Take out the black cartridge and press the print head against a moist paper towel. You should see a nice black rectangle, if you don't you could try placing the print head on a wet paper towel for a few minutes to wick out the ink (ink may seep through the paper towel so beware what surface you do this on). If after this there is still no ink flowing, buy a new cartridge.

Printing not complete


you may check your ink cartridge
1) the cartridge some color almost empty, need to change a new one or refill the match color ink. test it and go next if not fixed
2) long time less using cause some color ink chanel(holes) dryer, you may take out the color ink cartridge and put it's surface of bottom (just touch ) in the clean water 1 Hr, then set back and test it. still not fixed, you also need to do same thing if your print head is separated from your ink cartridge
