Printers that execute high quality images cannot (actually will not) allow printing when the other printer cartridges are almost gone or gone. This is a built in defense against the printer heads drying out and much servicing and expense.

You simply do not own a printer of any kind and allow the color cartridges or black cratridges to run out (or even get close) without having th replacement cartridge at hand for immediate installation.

This is how the printer manufacturer protects itself from costly warranty repairs and lawsuits.

Go immediately and buy the color ink cartridge and install it.

Black is the presence of all colors
White is the absence of all color

Your printer must draw in tiny increments from the color certridges to keep the heads functioning when you predominantly use black printed documents.

Science strikes again.

For God's sake, please do NOT leave me 2 thumbs up and trash my rating incrememntally because you aren't happy about this.

Why is my printer printing out only green on my photos?


Check your printer cartridge. Ideally, there will be one for black and three for the colors; however, some printers only have 1 for color. If that's the case, then probably all the color ink except for green is gone from the printer cartridge. If so, you are going to need to buy a new color ink cartridge.

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking


you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.

Colored Ink problem


Make sure you are using the correct cartridges for the Z35. They should be #26 (color) and #16 (black).

Make sure the contacts are clean where the cartridge connects to the printer electrically. A little alcohol wipe is good for this. Clean contacts on both the cartridge and the carrier in the printer.

Colored Ink problem


Make sure the printer settings are set properly to print in color on the PC. Even if there is a color cartridge, if the PC only tells it to print black ink it's not going to use the color cartridge.
