    I have an HP business inkjet 2300 & Windows XP desk top. My printer is only prining in black or this funky dark pink and light pink mode. (Grey Scale?) How do I remedy this. I know the ink is full because I just replaced all the colors thinking I was running out of the primary colors bet that didn't fix it. Any Ideas? Thanks!!!

    The pink is usually a sign that the ink is about to run out. Check the printer settings in the Windows control panel for the printing mode. From there, you should be able to do some diagnostics. Try a print head alignment and print head cleaning, just try all of the different options and then try and re-print. If not, you could have some dud inks? Very unlikely, but if you bought them cheaply from a not so good brand or had them re-filled then it could be an issue.
