Question about Printers & Copiers

I have an HP Photosmart Printer D6160 which I have been using very successfully. It suddenly will not print black but all colours are OK. It shows black cartridge is half full. Have cleaned heads, realigned and changed cartridge but it still does not print in black. Can you help please.

Sometimes the pipes get clogged and you might have to do a clean repeatedly i.e. 5 or 6 times, to get the ink flowing again. the only probelm with this is that it is very heavy on ink usage for the other cartridges as well! Alternatively the printer might be faulty so if it is in warranty ring HPs suport line and get it swapped.

Hi de Frescheville,

I'd be happy to help you with your Photosmart D6100. I suggest using the following document to troubleshoot the cartridges:

HP Photosmart D6160 D6163 and D6168 Printers Cartridge Failed or Cartridge...

I hope this helps.
I work on behalf of HP.

HP Photosmart D6160 - says ink is empty when it isn't


I have had this problem of receiving an error message saying that the yellow cartridge is empty on my Photosmart D6160 when it was not empty. Strangely the use of the 'Black Only' button produced a COLOUR image, including yellow!
I seem to have cured this problem by:
1) removing the printer in the control panel
2) switching off the printer and unplugging it from the computer
3) replugging the printer and switching it on.
4) watching the computer as it automatically reloaded the printer driver.

Note: The operating system I am using is WINDOWS 7. The printer was working fine with this OS before the above incident.

Also you can check the ink levels/colours by pressing continuously on the printer's power button, pressing the resume button (downward arrow) once and then releasing the power button. The printer then prints out a test/diagnostic page giving the ink status.
