HP Officejet 5610 All-in-one printing in red instead of black!

Hi. My HP Officejet 5610 All-in-one printer has started printing in red instead of black. I get about one page of black each time, then it gradually turns to red and stays red. I have bought several new cartridges (both HP and other) and exactly the same happens with every cartridge.

    I have an Hp photosmart 2610xi it's been great for the past 3 years. Now suddenly, it's been printing in red. I changed the ink cartridge & checked all the settings-but it still prints in red. I might get one page in black & the rest red. My e-mail prints in black, however. What's up?

    Same problem. I thought it was a Linux driver issue but the printer does it from its native from-card photo printing feature too.

    I have an HP C4280 All-In-One Printer that prints one page of black ink at best and then fades into red and stays red.  It's totally useless.  Please help.  Thanks very much.

Hi ,

As you have already tried replacing the ink cartridge , u can try to reset the printer .

Perform a semi-full reset on the all-in-one by following the steps below

1
Take out the cartridges from the unit .
2
Make sure the unit is connected to the wall jack directly without any surge protector.
3
Unplug the power cord from the back of the unit ( without turning off the unit ) .
4
Now press the # and 6 key together , while holding these keys down plug in the power cord back into the unit .
5
Do not release the keys after a few seconds u will find te hp logo or bars moving across the screen .wait while the unit turns off.
6
after one minute turn on the prnter . it will go into alligment phase > let it finish .
7
after its done > try to make a copy .


8 Allow the all-in-one to re-initialize. This may take a minute or two.

9 If prompts appear in the all-in-one display to set the front panel language and country settings, perform the steps to set this information

Note - you can also try the Ok n cancel key combination in place of # and 6 .in case the first combination does not work .


Thanks

I believe I found the solution.
If your trying to print a photo. I've found a tid bit of info that leads me to believe that it my color cartridge that is low on ink rather than the black cartridge despite the fact that it is the black cartridge that is failing to apply black to the image, I've learned that it is the work of the color cartridge to produce the black color when producing a photo. It makes sense because when I print regular text on a test print the black print comes out fine.

I tried all of these things. Also, I tried to see if the problem may be related to the browser I was using, but it was not. Ultimately, I uninstalled the driver/software for the printer, then reinstalled it new. The problem was solved.
