Not printing black


You didn't say printer name but it sounds like you have seperate cartridges! Most cartriges have connection points built in for the electricity to heat ink. You might want to see if the connection on both the printer and cartridge are clean.
some printers will tell you ink level! If yours tells you you have ink in the black then connection are good.
your test print must be missing the black, so I have also seen where multiple head cleanings may be required to unclog inkjet cartridge ports.
if not a manufacturers cartridge but refill you might want to try a new one.
Did you try selecting print black only? Like you are making a copy!
Sometimes HP cartridges have a small vent on top near rear that can clog use small pin to clear any vented buildup.

ink refill


I would always recommend using the original branded cartridges to make sure that your printer works even at the slightly higher prices as long as you maintain the printer using rubbing alcohol on the take up rollers and change the overspill pads every 65,000 prints you should minimize your problems. However Staples will do an alternative at a slightly cheaper price.

Most printers use a type of light sensor to tell the printer when the ink has run out this will leave about 5% in the cartridge which is normally wasted and is used to make sure the print heads don't dry out.

Its a bit of a fopar as most people don't want to loose this ink as most cartridges cost upto $30 (£20) and is a pain but its better than the heads drying out especially if the printer is not used very often. This is why its done.

Some times these sensors can get confused. You can normally paint an old cartridge with black poster paint or use black electricians tape on the side adjacent to these sensors so it thinks that its a new cartridge.

If your type has a small printed circuit board then you don't need to do this as this is designed to stop you using 3rd party cartridges that can be refilled with sub-standard ink that can block the jets. If you are doing this you will invalidate the warranty on newer printers.

won't print black


If it's a Canon cartridge, make sure you remove the tape over the vent hole on top, try a couple of deep cleaning cycles, otherwise you need a new printhead, qy6-0049-000 around $40.00

Prints without any errors but no ink on the paper.


if you have new print head assembly and cartridges, and waited for flow, and the printer is MECHANICALLY sound (not dropped or G-force damaged), then all that is left is improper cartridge installation. You may not have the cartridges fully inserted/, or maybe they are not PROPERLY inserted. Look for a snap when in place (and no wiggle). I suspect this is your problem, because one symptom you mention, ink accumulation INSIDE the head/cartridge cradle, is VERY rare -unless the cartridge is inserted improperly. The cartridges/head assemblies have VERY good seals to prevent leakage. Unless the o-rings/seals are damaged, leakage outside the seal just does not happen at all, normally.

*New head/cartridge installs can take several hours -sometimes even a day in cold weather, for small iP90-like printers to saturate the heads -and print.
