YOU SHOULD USE HP 21 BLACK INK CARTRIDGE FOR BLACK PRINTING.IF YOU USE 22 COLOUR CARTRIDGE YOU WILL GET ONLY GREAY PRINTING ONLY.I AM RIGHT?IF YOU USE COLOUR CARTRIDGES MAY YOU WILL GET MONEY LOSE. BECOS IT WILL FINISH EARLY.BLACK INK COST IS LESSTHAN COLOUR INK CARTRIDGES. SO YOU SHOULD BUY BLACK CARTRIDGE FOR REAL BLACK PRINTING.
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: HP 21 BlackHP 21 Black TwinpackHP 21/22 Black/Color ComboHP 21/22 Quad PackHP 22 Tri-color TwinpackHP 22 TricolorHP 58 Photo
part of your prob is that the way ink jet printers work, (according to the tech support training that I rcv'd about ten yrs ago from Canon) is that the printer "builds" the image or character by adding color to the black ink (for most of the jobs) in order to create "depth", so you will need to replace or (HINT: you can sometimes reset the cartridge by lifting the locktab and then reseating it) using the utility to replace the black cartridge. good luck!
Since HP’s ink technology is different from other manufacturers, they do not recommend to use refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges. Though the cost of genuine HP cartridges are bit expensive than the other cartridges, HP cartridges are manufactured in keeping mind the important factors print quality and customer satisfaction. Using the refilled cartridges may degrade the print quality and may damage the printer’s internal hardware.
I request you to use genuine HP Inkjet cartridges and verify the result.
Most times during a refill if you leave the cartridge out for any length of time the ink dries on the printhead or nozzels and wont allow the cartridge to print.
You can clean it manually with rubbing alcohol or try to use the printhead/cleaning feature built into the maintenance software installed on your computer.
Most times you will have to replace the ink cartridge.
