It has no color. Just a few minutes to install and do the alignment.
And now it prints color again. This model sure eats ink.
But your issue sounds like something else. I don't see what it is unless someone has been tinkering with printer settings. Sorry I think we need Karnac.
I have three printers and not a one works properly. One is an HP Photosmart C4480 (all-in-one) which prints for my Mac OS X, 10.6.3. It was working OK for a while and now it only prints blacke. Even pictures come out black. I have bought new cartridges and downloaded the latest software.
The next PC. is a Dell Dimension 2400 using WINXP I pretty much rebuilt after hurricane Charlie got through with it. Anyway, I have a Kodak, Easyshare (all in-one) printer with that and it won't do anything with black. It will print in colour but looks very much like a negative. New cartridges installed and the latest software downloaded.
I bought a used printer to help me get by while I tried to solve my problems. It's an H.P deskjet 5650. I invested in two new cartridges and plugged it into my IBM Laptop Thinkpad. Strange thing is, it will print a beautiful HP in blue at thebottom of the page and hp deskjet 5600 , www.hp.com
at the top.
I should mention that a while ago I had them all wirelessed and could print on one printer from all three. Trouble stared when we bought the Mac which I hate! I'm quite good with windows although both of my othe PC's are running WinXP> Apart from being frustrating, it's getting expensive and my computer illiterate husband is sure that I am the problem.
If have always thought that most of you moderators are geniuses and hope someone can advise me.
