thanks for reply,had checked all those suggestions except the electrical side.I had somebody put a meter on the cartridge and there were no readings.Went through the checks with HP on the phone and they told me how to put the printer on black only and are sending me replacement colour cartridge with a view to sending the old one back,expect i will have fun putting it back to colour and black! with this being the first time it has happened.
