Question about HP Deskjet D4260 Printer

1 Answer

My printer is an hp4260, I am tryin to print a document in black and the cartridge is new and full but it will start in black and turn to pink or just print in pink altogether. So I took the color cartridge out so it would be forced to print in black (and becasue the color cartridge was empty) but now instead it just prints a blank page

Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark 2600 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print cartridge nozzles.


After printing the test page, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

My Lexmark Z2320 only printing pink.... 3/4 full black cartridge, and 1/2 full color cartridge. Why only printing pink....


If your printer is only printing one color, it is a clear sign that the printer is in need of a head cleaning, and possibly an alignment. The instructions to do so are as follows according to the Lexmark website:

  1. Load plain paper.
  2. Then do one of the following:
    - in Windows Vista, click pattlnk_852008_1527-vista-start-button.gif.
    - in Windows XP and earlier, click Start.
  3. Click All Programs or Programs, and then select the printer program folder from the list.
  4. From the printer folder, click Maintenance - Align Cartridges.
  5. Click Print.
  6. Follow the instructions on the computer screen to finish

  1. Load plain paper.
  2. Do one of the following:
    - in Windows Vista, click pattlnk_852008_1536-vista-start-button.gif.
    - un Windows XP and earlier, click Start.
  3. Click All Programs or Programs, and then select the printer program folder from the list.
  4. From the printer folder, click Maintenance - Clean Cartridges.
  5. Click Print. A page prints, forcing ink through the print cartridge nozzles to clean them.
  6. Print the document again to verify that the print quality has improved.
Complete both of these processes, and your printer should begin printing normally again.

My printer is printing in pink color how can i change it to black


Sounds like your black cartridge is either empty or clogged. Take out the black cartridge and press the print head against a moist paper towel. You should see a nice black rectangle, if you don't you could try placing the print head on a wet paper towel for a few minutes to wick out the ink (ink may seep through the paper towel so beware what surface you do this on). If after this there is still no ink flowing, buy a new cartridge.

MP 160 IS PRINTING ONLY BLACK AND PINK COLLORS


Maintenance your cartridge with head clean or deep clean. If you don't get full colour, then change the colour cartridge.

I changed the black ink cartridge and the printer


Calibrate your new blank ink cartridge, have some nozzle check, cleaning check, and printer alignment. This are procedure that new ink cartridge will have to calibrate before you use. Epson printer are very sensitive when capable of changing ink cartridge. Unlink HP directly work without any print test because the cartridge head and ink join together, Epson with ink cartridge and the head separate.
Have some test on it at Printer Maintenance.
I'm sure 100% works on it.
Good luck!

I bought new ink black and color but i try to print in pink and i can't how can i print in pink


Hi alexgallo01
Do you get other colours except pink?
If that is the case,reasons could be:
1. there is not enough RED or BLUE in the cartridge.
2. you haven't selected pink colour on the text or images you are trying to print.
If you are typing a document highlight the text you want in pink, and choose PINK color for the font.
Then print the document. The printer will use color closest to your choice, if it does not have the exact color.
Hope this will help.
If it help you, please give a rating
Cheers

My watermarks are printing as pink instead of gray, this started happening after I changed the black cartridge. I have not made changes to the original document, and normal text still prints as black


if that is a refilled cartridge, you might have a problem with the ink. try print something (text) in pure black , and grey only, and see waht happens, if does notprint, means the printer has hard time with that black cartridge.
