Win 7 home premium 32 bit
HP printer single catridge mode

i am using HP 2130 all in one inkjet printer for one month now and when today i changed the black cartridge, because the old cartridge black ink dried out

so i replaced the old cartridge with new one, and since then i am seeing this message

and also one red light of printer is on

there is no button with the light it just the light by itself

but it prints black & white pages without any trouble

when i inserted the old cartridge back in the printer

the red light and this message disappeared

i also can print color papers without any problems

We all have done something similar. At least you figured it out and took the time to come back and post your findings. :)
