Question about HP Deskjet F4180 All-in-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Will not print in color

A couple a days ago i had my color cartridge refilled. after I installed the cartridge, I went to print a document and there was no color. Afterwards I thought maybe the cartridge was bad so I went and bought a new one and ended up with the same problem. I never had this problem before. I just can't figure it out. If someone can point in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated............ thanks

    My printer will print in colour when I connect directly with USB cable but not when I try to print when the printer is connected to Airport.

    HP F4180 won't print colors with mac osx. I am beginning to suspect that the problem is actually with osx, and not hp. This is because when I first hooked up and started using the printer, it printed in color, even through the airport express. However, at one point I selected B&W on the preferences/printer settings, and now it won't ever print in color no matter what I try, including power off, disconnect, reset printer settings, re-load drivers, etc., etc. I really like the mac so I will have to recycle this printer, go to the mac store and buy a more compatible printer.

I had the same problem with my printer which is identical to yours. I called the tollfree number for HP products and was advised by the techician to try a "cold restart" , which simply means to unplug the power cord and replug it a few seconds later. It was a simple solution which fixed my printer's problem.
Hope it works for you, too.

    PS. If that does not work, rerun the CD that came with your printer , once or twice.

Lexmark 1100 does not print all the words of a document- some words are too faint to read. I have just installed a new cartridge. (Not a refilled cartridge).


The cartridge you installed, is it a Lexmark factory new cartridge or a third party cartridge?

Is it possible that you have the document set up as a gray scale or color document that you are trying to print as a black and white document?

I am having HP Deskjet 3920 Printer. When i try to print any documents, it will show an error message that " The Triclor cartridge is incorrectly installed" , although still it will print color prints...


Hi Anish, Have u checked the printer cartridges installed properly(i.e., Color in color door and black in black door). and also check the cabling between the system and your printer. and put the papers properly. if the problem again persists uninstall the printer driver and install the latest drives which can be downloaded from the net.

Thanks,

The yellow light blinks and it won't print


I also started having problems with my HP 870Cse when I began using refilled cartridges and had ink leakage (cartridge contacts corrupted). Check for this problem. If so, remove cartridges and gently clean the spillage. Then try using HP brand cartridges and see if this doesn't remedy the problem.

Losing Ink


Depending on how many times you have refilled the wells of the cartride the sensor inside may be going bad as the manufature of the cartridge only intended it for a one time use. My recommendation would be to buy a off brand compatible and refill those.

If these steps dont work:

When you get them refilled The printer will still see them as empty.Hp doesnt like refilled cartridges. ignore the indicator.
