HP6960 Not printing in Colour just Black - colour cartridges are full & recognised by printer and PC

HP6960
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

HP6960 - replaced the Black cartridge with HP cartridge  but now printer only prints in gray scale. The printer is recognising the cartridges and PC app also. Have done full factory reset and restore on both printer and pc to no avail.

Have also use the HP printer doctor and that hasn't resolved

 

Help any other suggestions - don't want to have to replace

Hi @Hazel2020

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you with the  "no color " issue. 

 

Due to the current global COVID-19 situation, we're seeing an influx of customers coming in for support. We appreciate your patience.

 

To better assist you - 

 

1) Are you able to make color copies using the printer?

2) What's the application you are trying to print from? Have you tried printing from a different application or device? 

 

While you respond to that, let's print a Print Quality Diagnostic page 

 

  1. oad plain white paper in the input tray.

  2. From the printer control panel, open the Setup  menu.

  3. Open the Reports or Tools menu.

  4. Touch Print Quality Report.

Post the Print Quality Diagnostic page here so we can help you further. 

 

You may also refer to this document with steps to fix "no color issue" issue applicable for your printer - Black or Color Ink Not Printing, Other Print Quality Issues

Also, try updating the printer's firmware - HP Printers - Updating or Upgrading Printer Firmware 

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

Thansk for coming back.

 

No can't get it to print colour copies it says it has colour ink. I have attached the print quality report  which just shows the blank ink no colour at all but shows the level of colour ink.

 

I have been through the print diagnotics stuff on HP wesbite and that didn't fix - it feels like it is switched into permanent grey scale at the printer rather than the computer end if that makes sense.

As this is a hardware issue, I'd suggest you Contact HP in your region regarding the service options for your printer.
