Photo black ink runs out b4 black on HP Photosmart C6380 printer


The black ink cartridge is larger than the photo black cartridge and black is used in photos to make the darker colors. Black text takes much less ink per page.

It may be set for grayscale (black and white) in the print properties. Go into the print properties in Word and look for a color or black and white setting, either under Color Management or Advanced. Set it for color, and then print your color document.

Black ink will not print on Photosmart C6150; Ink


I'd do the reboot of the printer.Turn it off,unplug for 60 seconds,plug it back in,turn it back on and see if the black will work.After plugging back in it should clean the print head and then you can do a test page to make sure.

Not printing black


Verification of color out – happens only after keeping the unit idle for quite some time.
1. Print self-test report
2. Are the cartridges out of ink – check ink levels
3. check self-test report patterns (missing lines or streaked bars)
4. Look for missing colors or ink smears.
5. Was this issue showing up because of any one single color?
6. Was it stored in a warm environment (Stored under direct sunlight?)
7. Manual Cleaning & Cleaning from Driver
Print a extended self-test report,
On the HP All-in-One control panel, press and hold the OK and Cancel buttons simultaneously and then release. An extended self-test report prints. You will get all the information of your cartridges. Good Luck

HP Photosmart C3180 color printing problems


This can sometimes be a printer problem or bad quality ink. However I have known this to happen with corrupt printer drivers. Try uninstalling the printer via ControlPanel>AddRemove Programs and then re-installing it.
