HP 8150 Wont Print in color

My HP 8150 wont print in color no matter what. I keep trying to search through properties and the program to see how to change it. But I cant figure it out. All it does is print in black and white and no color. Can someone tell me how to fix this problem.

Hi i have simular problems i think. i did getting a fault on my cartridge and the fault message i getting tells me that something is wrong with cartridge and printer will print in backup mode by takeing away the black cartridge, i did try to change to a new black cartridge and the same problems appear.
After some investigating of this problem it seems to be a kind of delikat on my printer, inside where the black cartridge should be placed there are a metall "feather/spring" this has losen at one time i dont know when. but this sharp metall "spring" have been pushed in when replacing cartridge and made a hole in white elektrical connections for this particular cartridge and may damage this connections, maybe this has happend with yours printer as well.!?

And know how to fix this, with no support left at HP there arent so much to do i believe i have to use cartridge with triple color or trow this one away and buy a new one. Use and trow away with blessing from HP.

    the feather/spring got loose on my printer, I was lucky to carefully push it up a bit and this tiny "push" fixed the problem (-: Thank you for your advice w/o it I would not even try this quick fix. The printe is like new now.

Printer has ink but wont print in color test page wont print in color, also aligned printer and it worked in color. cleaned printer head as well which printed all the colors. what else can i do? It seems...


Take color copy, test all colors are OK..Go to printer properties, printing preferences, finishing check is there any check mark on print in black cartridge only? mark on print color..apply..OK.. give print command..
Go to paint draw a color drawing, print it.> check colors if its not printing in color it might be drivers issue.. un install the drivers re install once again check..> if printed in color check the file which you are printed..take another file.. then test..

How can i get my HP 8150 to print in color? I think this is a problem with my laptop (Compaq) because i have two printers and they both will not print in color from this computer. Please help


Open a document or type something into wordpad,then go up to file,then print.Select the 8150 and go to properties.Somewhere in there,you'll see an option to print B&W or color.Make sure it isn't set to B&W.Should work with your other printer too.

Turn both your printer and computer off then after a few minutes turn back on. This should cancel the print job.

My hp Color Laserjet 3550 Printer wont print black when it is out of color ink


The 3550 won't print in any color if any of the colors are out. You'll have to replace the color ink that's empty to get it to print.

In the future, if you're just printing black and white, you can select "Print in Grayscale" from the print properties to just use the black ink cartridge, which will help the color cartridges to last longer.

My HP Photosmart 8150 has started printing color


You may have a colour management problem. Your monitor may need to be recalibrated from the software you are using to print your images. Your printer too may need to be sorted by calibaration too.
