Black printer ink in HP Photosmart may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

My refilled ink cartridge still displays empty and will not print


The ink cartridge is most likely chipped & you would not be able to reset the ink level. Purchase an original or a good compatible cartridge. Refiling newer cartridges is not a good idea.

Every second line the top of the sentence is blank


Try replacing the Print head, if this does'nt help try purging the printer by having the printer pump ink through the nozzles by using clean funtion in your options and maintance menu. More then like the Black cartridge is clogged or needs replacing, Ink is put on paper by the unit heating the ink and outputing it to very small nozzles on the printhead.

Printer Cartridges won't align C4180 printer


Printer keeps trying to perform an alignment after installing a new black ink cartridge fix:

1. Unplug USB
2. Turn printer off
3. Wait 10 seconds
4. Remove paper from paper tray so printer has no paper to print on
5. Turn printer on
6. Printer messages to insert paper in paper tray
7. Press and hold “Setup” and “ Cancel” buttons and press “OK”
8. Should be good until next black ink cartridge change.
