How to Identify and Fix Common Problems ?

For instance, the HP ENVY series allows you to print in single-cartridge mode. When it comes to printing a single color i.e black, you can perform your printing activity by simply removing the tricolor cartridge and letting your printer default settings to use only black ink.
When color ink is expended and black ink still remains, you can continue printing for a short time using only black ink. However, you should replace the expended ink cartridge(s) as soon as possible.
Printers that use two cartridges (one black, one tri-color) can print if one cartridge is empty. To continue printing, remove the empty cartridge from the printer. If a Single-cartridge mode message displays, select OK. If you are using the black cartridge, prints are in black and white (grayscale).
If the ink level is sufficient, but the printer still does not print black ink, you may need to run a cleaning cycle. A cleaning cycle is a process that cleans the printer heads and removes any clogged or dried ink.
The answer is yes, your printer uses a bit of all colors (black, cyan, magenta, yellow) every time it prints. According to HP Support, “[our] printers are designed in such a way that it also uses color inks while printing in black to form a perfect black.
You can only install two black ink cartridges if your printer uses two different types of black ink. If you are trying to install a black ink cartridge in a color cartridge slot, your printer will not function and you could potentially cause damage to the machine.
As long as your printer also has a colour cartridge, all the colours from the colour cartridge will print together to make … BLACK.
If one or more color ink cartridges are low but not empty and you want to minimize the use of color ink, you can change the settings in the HP software to print with black ink only (grayscale).
Remember, printers use both black and colour inks when printing grayscale, so you`re not saving anything by doing so unnecessarily. Some printers will print with only a black ink cartridge installed – if your printer does this, you can technically save ink and use black ink only to print.
If you are replacing the Black (BK) ink cartridge, it is recommended that you shake the new cartridge gently four or five times before unwrapping it. You do not need to shake the Photo Black (PBK) cartridge or any of the other color ink cartridges.
When you send a print job from your computer, the computer tells the printer where to deposit the ink or toner. If there isn`t enough ink or toner left in the cartridge, the printer will display a low or empty sign to indicate you should replace the cartridge soon.
Click on the Windows orb and then “Devices and Printers.” Find your printer under the “Printer and Faxes” section and right-click on it to select “Properties.” If the port tab exists, click on the “Port” tab and deselect “Enable Bi-Directional Support.” Click “Apply and then “OK.”
The answer is yes, your printer uses a bit of all colors (black, cyan, magenta, yellow) every time it prints. According to HP Support, “[our] printers are designed in such a way that it also uses color inks while printing in black to form a perfect black.
