Hi ,

-try cleaning it manually - by a lint free cloth and moisten it with water then dub unto the printhead of the cartridge- 4 about 4-6 times,then finish it with a dry cloth-

-then run the cleaning cartridge on the printer
-then print an alignment page
-there is no problem on the printer its just the cartridges

Why my hpC6100 printer is not printing blk


It went out, You have to put a new cartridge inmediatly. As soon as you notice a faint color you should have a new cartridge available, You hurt your print nozzel when you print without ink.

Brother MFC-440CN - print quality terrible, almost non-existent in spite of many cleaning operations.


It sounds like the printhead needs to be replaced. Brother may cover the cost of repair if you call them at 877-276-8437 and tell them the prints are "missing black ink". Very common problem that a new printhead should fix.

Installed new cartridge still won't print


It could be that your printhead needs cleaning. Open the Lexmark Solution Center application on your computer. Go to the Maintenance tab and select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page, forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Then try to print a document again to verify that the print quality has improved.

When we attempt to print it leaves black streak marks. At first it printed all black and when we went to setup under maintainence we chose alignment and clean cartridges. This worked however we still see...


If an inkjet printer gives white streaks where it should be black, it means the ink is very low, or there is dirt under the nozzles preventing it from printing properly, or, in the case of non original cartridges, ink might be leaking which prevents the bubbles of ink to squirt onto the page.

If the streaks are black where it should be white, is sounds like some dust or fluff below the cartridge leaves ink smears on the page.

Installed new 28 and 29 cartridges in lexmark x2550 and it won't recognise the cartridge and won't print at all, very frustrating please help urgently


It could be that your cartridges need some cleaning. On your computer, launch the Lexmark Solution Center. Click Start menu > Programs or All Programs >Lexmark 2500 Series > Lexmark Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print again.

My black ink prints in streaks. Some of it is good, some very faded. I have done a printhead cleaning (everytime that I print because it is the only way to get a good copy). When I print (on kodak photo...


Hi there,

If you have to clean the print heads each time, this will only consume even more ink. There may be a problem with the printhead having clogged up with ink overtime. I would get it serviced, or if the quote is too high, you might just be better of getting a new printer unfortunately.

With regards

Faded-out streak


check your ink levels. if its the ink that came with the printer it is probable running out of ink. they do not give a full cartridge with printers, only about 3rd full. also try cleaning the heads. and try changing your printer settings/prefrences to less ink, more drytime see if that helps.

RX500 EPSOM STYLUS PHOTO PRINTER Won't Print


I used some less expensive generic ink cartridges on my RX500 and had a similar experience with the black. If you're already using the Epson brand, done the head cleaning, realignment and nozzel checks, I'm not much help. Try Epson's support at their web site.

Incorrect ink level reading


kiwipom, While ink cartridges look like plastic cups that only hold ink...they are not. The information the printer needs to think it has a "NEW" set of ink cartridges is on the cartridge itself. You must fakeout the printer to believe you are inserting "new lexmark" inks. Printer companies make money from the repeated sale of the ink, not the printer itself. I had an old epson that I would refill I would then have to place pieces of tape on the cartridge turn the printer on, remove the cartridge move the tape to another side of the cartridge turn on again etc. Anyway lexmark may need the same. When the new original cartridges show try them first to get the printer "thinking" correctly. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
