I want to disable messages about the inkcartridges.


Sadly not. The HP Photosmart C7280 insists on having a full set of cartridges installed in order to print. It does this because the printheads are actually part of the printer itself and can sustain damage if they pull air into the printhead.

The out of date message is also non-negotiable I am sad to say.

Can I print black and white without having color cartridges?


You need to have color cartridges installed for your printer to function. You can however print black and white with empty color cartridges. If you do this you may damage the print head and not be able to print in color again. If you can live without color printing I recommend a monochrome laser printer. It will never print color, costs 1/2 as much to print with, won't dry out, and the cartridges last way longer than ink cartridges.

My hp Color Laserjet 3550 Printer wont print black when it is out of color ink


The 3550 won't print in any color if any of the colors are out. You'll have to replace the color ink that's empty to get it to print.

In the future, if you're just printing black and white, you can select "Print in Grayscale" from the print properties to just use the black ink cartridge, which will help the color cartridges to last longer.

Happy Spring.. I have a C7280 all in one..It is not printing in color...the pictures come out faded in black & white.. All my color cartridges are full...except for yellow..that is not completely...


You may need to clean the print haed. A self test report will show this, if so do the following

To clean the print head from the control panel
1. Load letter or A4 unused plain white paper into the input tray.
2. Press Setup.
3. Press to highlight Tools, and then press OK.
4. Press to highlight Clean Printhead, and then press OK.
The HP All-in-One cleans the print head and prints a page that you can recycle or
discard.

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.

My printer has an almost full black cartridge but will not print.


Check the ink lines, the printer head might be clogged, If thats not fixing anything then check your printer settings on the computer and remove the color option. Changing it to black and white can somtimes just be from color, not just black.

HP Photosmart C7280 still prints in color


Why don't you try changing the Setup for your printing to Black & White or Grayscale in your computer's software: File/Print/go to the printer's settings and disable anything color. As for the cartridge, it's probably the cartridge. If you have an extra, why not swap it out? I believe the brains in the cartridge contacts might not be working properly OR your heads need to be cleaned OR you better stick with HP original cartridge to make sure it's not the printer. I used to use "odd" ink and even refilled ones and shortly thereafter my old printers would die. Not taking a chance on this HP. I love how it prints when it isn't jamming the paper! Need help on that problem pronto.
