We currently have 3 of these machines in our offices and two of them are experiencing the "won't print black" problem. I have followed all of the troubleshooting and cleaning options listed on these pages. Calling HP support would seem to just put me back to square one, and it would be simpler and more cost effective to go out and purchase new printers, which I will do.
The Officejet 6000 seems to be a bad machine. The software is overly complicated, and the machine takes way too long to set itself before printing. I am surprised that HP would ever make a bad printer, but I think we just all need to throw in the towel and put a fork in the Officeject 6000.

My officejet 6700 preminum will not print in black becasue the printer says i need to replace the color inks. How can I bypass this since I don't normaly print anything in color.
