Question about HP PSC 1315 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Copier feature (Black or Color) only produces a Black page

All of a sudden the Copier features both Color or Black only prints out a black page.
To be clear printing from the computer works fine, it appears to be an issue with the copier features.

Have tried many different things like:
1. Unplugged, waited 5 minutes and plugged back in
2. Tried quick copying (draft quality) by holding down the Scan button while pressing the Black copy button
3. Tried doing a Color copy
4. Finally I tried pulling the Black cartridge out and put back in

All of these things produce a page with nothing but black ink.

Assumptions, the cover is down while copying.

Any ideas?

Thank you in advance

I beleive you are not able to make a color copy, once try to scan from the computer or all-in-one to check whether the scanner mechanism is working properly or not, if the scan comes out fine then remove the color cartridge and clean the copper contacts of the cartridge with soft cotton cloth and also check the ink level of the cartridge, if the issue persists replace the color cartridge and if even the scan does not comes out good then there is an issue with the scanner mechanism.

Problems with greyscale printing as colour on the Canon CLC3220


From whatever software you are printing, you will need to select the properties or features. In Pagemaker, it was features, but most other programs I now see it under properties for the 3220 on the print screen. You will need to find where it gives you the options for color. They should be color, greyscale or black & white. The default is generally color. Generally the 3220 will know if it is not a color document and print the black and white as a greyscale, but sometimes you have to force it.

If you are printing crop marks and color bars, then your document is recognized as color even though it may not be.

Finally, some programs use a black that is actuall 100% of CMY & K. If you are using InDesign and select registration as your black, instead of the plain black, then you document is recognized as color.
The same holds true if you select a pantone grey which is created from several colors. So also make sure that your document is truly greyscale and or that you tell the copier to print in greyscale.

Hp 2600n will not accept print jobs. Color cartridges show empty. black shows half full. Printing of a test page produces a great test page quality


I have two problems. Either it won't accept a print job or when it is printing it stops when it is going through the job intermittently. Like for an hour it won't continue then all of a sudden it prints one page then a half hour later another page etc. It is so frustrating.

Copies and prints in color are black procesed, but in black are ok


Using CMY Color produces a Processed Black.
Using only K will produce a Black.
In the print driver on a PC change your default setting to Black, from the machine you can set it to use only black as well.
That Patch is on the transfer belt. which it will alwyas do, that is what color machines do.

Install the print driver twice and set one driver s Color Mode to color and one to greyscale. This setting can be accessed by right clicking on the print driver and selecting Printing Preferences, click on the Color tab and set the Color Mode appropriately.

Copying feature - HP PSC 1610


The light source has failed thus the original is not being illuminated.
The copier thinks you are copying a black piece of paper.

Printing from the PC does not require any light source, therefore printing is not affected.

Check your manual to see if it mentions a replacement routine; if not, and if it is no longer under warranty, you are maybe stuck with tossing it or taking to your friendly neighborhood techie who is trying to pay his rent.
