Solved!

Can't print black and white on L7590 with no yellow ink

HP Recommended

I ran out of ink at the weekend and got a new black ink cartridge. Unfortunately I didn't notice that I was also out of yellow ink. I desparately need to print some plain black text but the printer refuses to as it's out of yellow ink! I don't want to print in yellow. Is there any way to disable this error message for a HP OfficeJet Pro L7590?

 

Thanks.

Never mind, I figured it out. If you set the printer to manufacturing mode, it ignores the ink levels. Sorted.

There will be no way to skip that message.. You need to replace the yellow cartridge bec the printer will undergo a system check before you can use it. Ink cartridge check is included.

 

So you need to have sufficient ink in the cartridges before you can do anything else..

Thanks for replying, however I'm sure there must be a way of ignoring ink levels as it is possible with certain key combinations on other HP printers. In my printer, I can get into some hidden menus by pressing *# together then 123, 124, 125 etc If I go into the 329 menu there's a rw parameter item. Though without spending all day, I doubt I'm going to figure out which one (if any) is to disable low ink notification.

How did you get it into 'manufacturing mode'?

Using Officejet Pro L7590 printer connected to my laptop using XP Pro OS: So many people I've seen on forums have the same problem... The warning message on the printer states: A colour cartrage is low/empty and the printer won't print at all even though I select the "black ink only" option. A solution posted on an old thread is to set the printer to "manufacturing mode". Can't find where to do this. I need an answer on how to get around this asap. Thanks

Any word on how to set Manufacturing mode?  It looks like there is a programing error in the HP...If this cannot be resolved, this may be the LAST HP product I buy!
