It is because of the clogged nozzles of other colours.even sometimes cleaning the head does not solve the problem.the nozzle needs to be cleaned by servicing it manually by a proper technician.thanks.

Printer wont print it has a new black ink cartridge but the color inks has no more.how can i print black only.


You cannot print unless both cartridges are installed and have a decent supply of ink left in them. It doesn't matter if your printing only black and wont need to use the color cartridge. It still have to be installed with ink for your printer to work. There is no way of getting around this problem.
I wish I had better news for you.

I just installed a brand new HP 17 color cartridge in my HP deskjet 845c (as it appeared that the old one had run out of pink and yellow color) and now the new one will only print out in blue. I took out...


One of the first things I would do is called "footprinting" the cartridge. Remove the cartridge from you machine and firmly press the bottom of the cartridge, the print head, onto a paper towel. Use your other hand to apply even pressure from underneath the paper towel. This, hopefully, will cause ink to bleed out of the cartridge and onto the paper towel. Be aware that you may get ink on you and take measures to prevent it if necessary. A good footprint from that cartridge should yield three small rectangles of the three colors in the cartridge, it is ok if they bleed into each other. If cyan is the only color flowing you can try moistening the paper towel with some warm distilled water and gently holding this against the print head for a short while (30 sec), again ink should come out. If there the cyan is still the only color to flow there is nothing more you can do at home. Return the cartridge if you can.

If however all three colors footprint well then it may be a driver and/or firmware issue with the printer. I would try reinstalling the driver first, then upgrading the firmware is an upgrade is available. Those machine are getting older and probably do not have as much support available as newer machines do.

I put blue ink in a black cartridge and from then


Hi, you shouldn't have done that, because the color cartridge and black cartridge are not of the same make, what you need to do now is to change the cartridge, get a new cartridge to replace to troubleshoot,let see if it will print.

Compliments and wish you best of luck.

Hp c4480 prints blue instead of black


Check the print properties and verify the black ink cartridge still has ink in it.

Otherwise, you may have a bad ink cartridge. If the cartridge has not been used for a while, the ink gums up the nozzle. You can try cleaning the ink cartridge and slot with alcohol. However, new color and black cartridges may be the best solution.

Canon i960 printer won't print in blue


Your problem is the print head. You can buy one from Canon for about $95, or find them new from dealers on Ebay for $60 to $70. For a less expensive fix, try to remove the print head and clean it. (You don't need any tools, just remove the ink tanks and pull the print head forward and out. Over time, the receivers tend to get dry & crusted ink on them. Note that the inks used are fast drying inks to keep your pictures, etc. from smudging after you print them. Try not to use solvent. I use q-tips and hot water, then dry using another q-tip. If this does not work, there are commercial cleaning kits available for about $10. Short of that, your choice is to replace the print head or the printer itself. My i960 prints such good quality color prints and normal color printing, that I would fix it rather than replace the printer. I hope the easy cleaning does it for you!

New color cartridge won't print in correct color


Was this a new factory ink cartridge or a refilled one?
I have seen some reconditioned/refilled with the color inks refilled in the
wrong section.
