SOLVED! HPLip, printer not printing most things... HP Deskjet D4160
 
I have a printer that is not printing most things I send to it. It passes the page through as though it's printing, but nothing comes out.

I can successfully print a report from the printer itself AND through HPLip, I can align the cartridge and it'll print out. However, when I try to print a test page either through HPLip or a file that I have it does NOT print.

I have a few other printers that work flawlessly through CUPS or HPLip, this is my only troublesome one. Again, the model is an HP Deskjet D4160.

I'm positive that this is not a cartridge or USB cable problem.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Brandon

Ah, I figured it out. In the printer options<printout mode it was set to the color cartridge. I changed it to normal grayscale/black cartridge and it works fine now.
