Question about HP Photosmart C3180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

PRINTING IN BLACK ONLY

FIRST OF ALL...THIS THING IS A PIECE OF YOU-KNOW-WHAT. REALLY. OK, IT DOESN'T WORK THAT GREAT ON A WINDOWS MACHINE OR A MAC. I'VE GOT BOTH. CURRENTLY IT'S HOOKED UP TO MY MAC, WHICH I "ONLY" WANT/NEED TO PRINT WITH "BLACK" INK. I HAVE ANOTHER SEPARATE HP PRINTER ONLY FOR COLOR PROJECTS.

CAN I ONLY USE "ONE" INK CARTRIDGE AT A TIME FOR THIS C3180? I DO NOT NEED THE COLOR CARTRIDGE FOR THIS UNIT AT ALL. YET IT KEEPS TELLING ME THAT IT WILL NOT WORK WITH JUST ONE CARTRIDGE. SO I KEEP AN EMPTY (OR RATHER SUPPOSEDLY EMPTY) CARTRIDGE IN IT SO IT WILL PRINT. HOWEVER, SOME RED SEEMS TO ALWAYS COME THROUGH HALF WAY THROUGH A JOB. IT SHOULDN'T PRINT ANY OTHER COLOR THAN BLACK, AS I AM ONLY USING A BLACK DOCUMENT WITH NO OTHER PRESENT COLORS. ?????????? I'VE REALLY HATED THIS MACHINE EVER SINCE I'VE OWNED IT. UNFORTUNATELY, IT WAS A GIFT.

My solution would be stop typing in caps so I won't hesitate to help you, but my solution is to just buy the ink cartridges or get an old, black only printer instead of a $120.00 HP All-In-One c3180. I have one and I cant use it for some reason, but I'm trying to get it to work desperately...

I have a donated photocopier for the scout group and it has a code which no-one knows. Speaking to an IT Engineer we should be able to rest to factory settings. We have tried Admin as user name and admin...


Really depends on the model/maker.
Sharp photocopier? try one of those: (note the capital A and S )
