Yes it is normal because the printer is not shipped with preinstalled cartriges in the printer, it must have been shipped with a black ink toner cartrige and you can print upto 1000 pages using that.

My HP Officejet Pro 8000 Printer will not print red, even though I just put a new ink cartridge in. The yellow & blue work fine. Help!


Try to uninstall and re-install the printer's software for this can be software issues. If that would not work try to remove and put back in the ink cartridge properly. If this would not work check warranty then call the printer's manufacturer.

You will need the original set up discs that came with the printer. Re-install back on to your computer and there should be a HP program comes with it that will approximate your ink levels.

The solution center shows a question mark on both ink cartrages, and says no comutaion with the printer.


Take the cartridges off and check the connections. Make sure that there is no dust or debris on the contacts. Also take some Alcohol on a swab and clean both areas with it. I would recommend a clean swab for each contact so you do not cross contaminate the leads. When you put the cartridges back in make sure that they seat all the way. I know that there are some cases where the cartrages look like they are seated properly but not.

H P psc 2210 printer will not accept ink cartridges have used from this supplier in the past with no problems display reads "remove and check cartridge" this I have done but no cure.


Are you using cartridges that have been refilled? If so I would go buy brand new HP ink cartridges or I would find known working but used cartridges and try again. The ink cartridges on any inkjet type printer are not made to be refilled and if you were to call HP about this problem they would tell you to replace the ink cartridges with new ones and try again.

I cannot locate HP Solution Center on my computer in order to ask a question about why my ink jet is not lasting very long.


Hi Carolyn,

The HP Solution Center is a program on your computer that provides a single place where you can control your printer and also receive help on common problems. As part of your HP printer's installation, the Solution Center should have an icon on your desktop which looks like a blue ball with "HP" in white letters inside.

If you do not have one, then you can create one. Using Windows Explorer (Windows Key > E), find the following file on your computer.

C:\Program Files\HP\Digital Imaging\bin\hpqdirec.exe"

Then right-click on it and select "Send To: Desktop". You should now have an icon on your desktop for the HP Solution Center.

For why your ink is not lasting very long, this could be many things. But one way you can reduce your ink consumption is by making sure that your are printing in DRAFT mode and BLACK&WHITE for your normal every day printing. You should only use COLOR and NORMAL/BEST selections when printing photos or professional documents.

In addition to these printer settings, please realize that the ink cartridges that were shipped with your printer usually have a low volume of ink so that you have to purchase new ones. When buying new ones, try to find cartridges that advertise "large capacity" because they have more ink and are a better value.

Good luck with your problem. If you found my solution helpful, I would appreciate the feedback.

I replaced my hp ink catridges and the printer is still saying the ink is empty. What do I do?


You haven't mentioned what printer model but you can try th following.
Firstly, try removing your new cartridge and temporarily putting the old one back. Sometimes this will then show as a full cartridge even though it is empty, because the sensor electronics appears to get confused. Next, turn off your printer and turn it back on again, then take the old cartridge out and put the new one back. I cannot guarantee this will work, but it will be worth a try.

New Ink cartridges registering as empty ...


Is it an HP printer? We had the same problem at work with print cartridges purchased at Staples. They have a major quality control problem. Your new print cartridge may be empty or dried out (died on the shelf). It's my problem at work, as I have over 80 HP deskjets, and Purchasing still insists on buying the Staples cartridges rather than the HP.

Sometimes if you shake a print cartridge really hard it may correct the problem. However, I would buy or borrow a black HP print cartridge and try it out in your printer. Works almost every time on the job. Good luck.
