I have an HP Deskjet 656C Printer,
The problem is that it doesn't print any type of graphics, or the URL links

What cud be the probable reason

Kindly Help
Watch Question


What does it print instead of the graphic? Will it print any colored text? I'm assuming you have tried replacing the color cartridge, did you remember to remove the tape covering the inkjet head? I had a case of that last year - printer would print black only, since the color cartridge had the inkjets covered
sounds like you have ran out of colored ink.


No I don't have a colored cartridge, It's a black and white printer,
Instead of graphics , there is blank(empty)

Is that problem with the driver or so??

Is this just when printing from Internet Explorer?

Did you install the drivers using the cd, or through Windows defaults?  The cd may give better results.
have you tried changing your printing properties from colour to greyscale

still the problem persists
should I chek the cartiredge once again

In epson printer there is a feature which shows how much of Ink is remaining in the printer.
I have an HP deskjet 656c, there is no such property there,
Is there any way to chek this
Moreover It's necessary that both of your cartrdge ink (colored, black) should be present to get the printing or any one will do..kindly elaborate
If I have black ink only and adust the properties to greyscale , will that work... or vice versa..only colored ink and changing the property to colored??


I am waiting for the answers, Please help

One more thing..Is it good to buy a New cartgdge or Refilling of card will work
