    the printer power button blinks, it won't shut off unless you pull the power and it feeds a page through, prints nothing and then stops halfway and you get a paper jam error. to clear the print jobs I have to pull the power cord

Will HP 60 ink cartridge work with HP Deskjet 2460? Tnx.

This is all HP recommends for the HP Deskjet 2460, so I wouldn't suggest buying anything else. First of all it might not fit and second, even if it fits, other issues may come with using those. If you can't see the list here it is:

Remove one cartridge and close the access door. If the cartridge light goes off, the bad cartridge has been removed. If the light continues to blink, remove the other cartridge and reinstall the first one. If the light goes off, the cartridge in the printer is the good one.

check the ink level of your printer, maybe you are low on ink or just run out, if so replace it with a genuine hp ink cartridge

Halftone printing

do you mean grayscale printing?just configure your printer setting to print in grayscale using the black ink only..HP D2460 is capable of printing using only one (1) installed cartridge..
