HPO D5560 not print with the black print cartridge

Having a D5560 printer which stopped printing with the black cartridge.

Thought it was the cartridge has installed a new (only use HP cartridges) no difference

After thinking the Black just stopped - no phasing-out quality, etc..

Ran the cartridge filter (all levels of cleaning) no difference

Print well if I remove the black cartridge so that the Tricolor print black but it's only good to work around the problem

I use this on Windows 8.1. It worked fine for months

Can't think that I had installed recently HP driver updates

I have a hardware problem?

Thanks for any input

See you soon


OK, so it's weird.

Just thought to connect my netbook windows 7 into the printer.

It print very well with the black print cartridge.

Sent a work computer Windows 8.1 and now prints fine in black of the black cartridge.

Problem solved, but I'm losing the plot!

See you soon

  • HP Deskjet 1000 J110: Intense black print with the black ink cartridge only


    I am trying to print the darkest possible black, but simply by using the black ink cartridge. How do I get there?

    My printer is HP deskjet 1000 J110 using cartridge HP 301.

    I do my drawing in Adobe Illustrator and set the color to be CMYK 100 100 100 100.

    If I insert only the black cartridge, the printer will leave empty place where color CMY ink should be or it will fill the space with black ink?

    Basically, what I'm trying to do is to increase the density of ink to the highest possible but only using only the black cartridge.

    Thank you.

  • (Redirected) new here - and have trouble with the black ink cartridge not to produce quantity it promises


    I have an AIO 948 printer and for years had a ng bad espain on the number of prints each cartridge provides. He promises 585 when newly installed - this time I counted each impression, and now when he says that it is empty ( but experience, explains that he will yet deliver ca 30-40) gave 136 prints

    It's a lot less Quen 585

    I have found no place to ask this question about dell sites - it's not on my customer number - this is a general question whether dell deliver what they say they do - 585 prints pr cassette.

    Dell printers I had for about 6 years or more - it's a lot of cassettes - and I have such a bad feeling of being deceived here. Please explain that to me, someone - or at least give me a maildress who will read it and explain.

    Thank you!

  • DeskJet 932C, you can print with just replace the black ink cartridge?

    My question is basically simple.  The printer DeskJet 932C can operate with only black ink?  Color ink was empty for a while now, but the printer kept working, printing in black and white.  Due to the cost of the ink and the absence of any income available, we just changed the black ink cartridge.  The problem now is that the printer will not print not even black and white.  Do I have to scrape some funds to replace the color ink cartridge, or y at - it another way to get the printer working with just the new black cartridge?

    Thank you in advance!

    Your printer can print in black only, but up to a certain point , you need tri-cartouche color otherwise it will not print. It's a little late now, otherwise if you only need to print B & W, a monochrome laser printer is very good and much cheaper to run (in terms of cost per page).

    Kind regards.

  • I need to print from firefox icon as I used, because some pages that I need to print do not load with the menu.

    Since a recent automatic update, I was not able to print by clicking on the firefox tab icon. I have pages that I need to print, that do not load with the toolbar complete with the key of menu etc. I could always print by clicking on the icon, but no more. Help please.

    you could try pressing and use 'ctrl' then 'P' on your keyboard
    We also write 'ctrl + P', it's the printing system wide combination of shortcut keys.

    Alternatively, you can try, right-click in the title bar (where your loading tabs) and selecting 'Menu Bar', which will show the menu bar (with file, editing, display, etc.) on the tabs allowing you to print from the submenu file

    hope that helps!

    As OEM HP is responsible for the good operation of the printer and their drivers. Check with
    HP support, their documentation online and drivers and ask in their forums.

    Good luck, you need to update or reinstall the latest driver.

    The main issue is probably the drivers, but these can help:

  • "communication not available with the printer" message when you try to print to a Lexmark 1270 x all-in-one

    I am running windows xp family.  I don't know what happened, but all of a sudden, I get this message when I try and print to my lexmark x 1270 "communication not available with the printer. I tried every troubleshooter, I contacted Lexmark support that they gave up, saying: it must be a file is missing from the windows registry, you can help me?

    It seems that if you say that the pilots were not reinstalled successfully.  What was the mystery file that could not be found?

    Do you remember how the software has been uninstalled?  Was something else than the control panel > Add / Remove Programs (or the link "Uninstall" from start > all programs) used?

    If you do not really clean things, attempts to reinstall the printer drivers may actually just end up putting the old drivers back in place.

    This is the easiest way to uninstall and reinstall the printer drivers: Article 1.  The critical step is #4.

    This page has more detailed advice for cleaning things out before you reinstall: http://members.shaw.ca/bsanders/CleanPrinterDrivers.htm

    I asked the firewall and antivirus applications because sometimes, some security software may interfere with the printers.  This shouldn't be a problem with the firewall of Windows XP and Microsoft Security Essentials.

    Finally, your problem could end up being hardware related.  Lexmark support has no hardware troubleshooting operation?  The manual for your x 1270 says:

    All-in-One is not communicating with the computer

    1. disconnect and reconnect both ends of the USB cable. For more help, see the
    installation documentation.
    2 unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, plug it in again, and
    Press Power. For more information, refer to the installation documentation.
    3 restart the computer. If the problem continues, remove and then reinstall
    the software. For more information, see page 16. [which ask you to remove the software using the link "Uninstall" - which is not complete, as described above]

    If you have another type of printer USB cable, you should try it exchanges.  Ideally, you need to connect to the printer on another computer, but maybe it's not convenient for you.

  • Lexmark Interpret S405 is not communicating with the computer and will not print

    My computer works with Windows 7 and updates automatically.  I got the Lexmark Interpret S405 for 18 months, and it has worked great until a couple of months.  When I try to print, I get an error message indicating that the printer is not communicating with the computer.  When I check the printer, it shows he's ready.  The print job shows that it is ready to print, but nothing happens except for this message.  When I try to erase the impression, it really takes a lot of time - usually have to unplug the printer so that it can finally clear.  Then it still will not print if I try again unless I restart the computer.  Lexmark support page says that there is a problem with Windows 7 and their product.  All the solutions for this problem yet?

    Computer model of the bridge ZX6970, OS 64-bit, intel CORE CPU I-13 3.30 GHz, Windows 7 Home Premium.  Can someone advise a fix for this problem?  Thank you!


    Have you tried to download and install the updated firmware for the Lexmark Interpret S405 from the manufacturer's website.

    If this isn't the case, please download and install it.
