Why does my printer use color ink when printing black?
Your printer is printing the color black on top of the color black to produce a “different” shade of black. Some printers even have “Black Ink Only” mode that can be enabled, in which the results look nearly identical to the default setting that uses color cartridges.
Can I print if one cartridge is empty?
You may be able to print when one printer cartridge is empty by adjusting your printer settings, but it depends on the leniency of your printer. Unfortunately, many new printers are designed to block you from printing if a cartridge is out of ink, forcing you to buy more ink at the least convenient time.
How can you tell if a printhead is clogged?
HP printheads clog periodically as small amounts of ink or dust dry up and collect in the nozzle. Faint, streaky or spotty prints are all common signs of a clog but a simple cleaning can usually get your HP ink cartridges working again. Printheads clog due to infrequent cartridge use.
