My hp officejet d135 All-In-One printer won't print out in color. The black works just fine but even when I put a new color cartridge in, it won't print in color. Also, the alignment "test" paper that prints out is only in black and white also. It shows no color. HELP!

I also have the OfficeJet 6500 and had the same problem. The black text
was printing using a mix of colored inks instead of the black ink,
resulting in a grey, fuzzy text. I finally found a solution. In each
application under Page Setup, there is an option called "Format for".
Mine had been set to "Any Printer". I changed that to "Officejet 6500
E709n [830E4A]" and now it prints the black just fine. I have a Mac
running 10.4.11. Hope this helps.
No !!! First of all they are not the same size so the black cartridge most probably won't fit on the color slot, and if for any reason you need to print more with it, the black ink would have left its "mark" inside the color ink the injectors.
I am sorry the print head goes out on the B And W on these things quite frequently. however you can go to www.hp.com amd go threw thier secdualed way of testing the print head but am sure you will find it defective. I had one and it was a problem. B e aware they have a new head that replaces the old head that lasts much longer.
HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.
