Make sure the print head nozzles are not clogged. You may need to clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can deliver ink properly. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if quality declines.

When you don't turn on your EPSON CX3200 for a long time, the print quality can decline. It's a good idea to turn on your EPSON CX3200 at least once a month to maintain good print quality.

1. Make sure the EPSON CX3200 is turned on but not printing, and the Error light is off.
If the Error light is flashing or on, you may need to replace an ink cartridge.
2. Press the left Menu button on the control panel several times until you see Cleaning and then press the Copy button.
Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which the EPSON CX3200 makes some noise and the Operate light flashes. Never turn off the EPSON CX3200 while the Operate light is flashing, unless the EPSON CX3200 hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes. setViewedFAQCookie(14082, 31605);

CX 3200 Epson, prints colour fine but does not print black, just had my cartridge refilled but still no print in black.


Hi!
Run a Head Cleaning Cycle. If that won't help. chances are the tubes are already blocked with the ink from previous cartridge. You can bring it to a Certified service center but its better getting a new one.
Hope this helps.

Black printer ink in HP Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

How do you remove printer heads on cx3200


The two clips that swing down and hold the ink cartridges can be easily removed without breaking anything or removing screws. Look at the hinge points and use a screwdriver to gently pry one hinge of each clip out and the clips will simply lift out. But after that there are 2 small screws that hold the print heads in that ink cartridge carriage. Remove them and keep track of them. The white clip positioned in the color ink cartridge bay helps to hold the ribbon cable in place, but once you see what will move in regard to the print head, you can loosen the white clip and the print head should lift up. In this way, conceivably, the CX3200 print head should detach from the ribbon cables (there are 2) and a new one goes in its place. I'm dealing with a friend's CX3200 that the black is not printing and I'm cleaning it out and finding a lot of dried sticky ink. Probably used until dry or refilled the cartridge with the wrong type of black ink.

Sx405 will not recognise any cartridges . even epsom cartridges. at the moment i have 1 cartridge. black, not epsom, in the printer, but will not recognise any of the other colors


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?
ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .


IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.

This is the only advice I can give you.


The next step would be to disassemble the Epson, and clean the Pads/Heads. Click on link below.:

Printer not printing in black. Print Color only.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please try the refill cartridge on some other printer. If it’s working fine on the other printer then check the settings of the printer which are by default 960 dpi (dots per inch) but due to some reason this size has been reduced. Now you have to change this setting to more than 960, around 1200 dpi and then check out that if your printer works fine.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.



Thanks

Canon MP470: "Print Head is not installed. Install Print Head"


Some printer brands have a cute scheme that reads a "new" cartridge as good, but the refilled one has a small fuse link that is burned out by the printer. Try factory new cartridges. Unplug the printer power for a bit to reset the printer.

Wont print black but colors are fine,


Clean heads, clean heads, clean heads, etc. Then do the test print to see if the heads are open. I had similar problem with an Epson, had to clean the heads often, finally got to where the heads wouldn't clean so threw it away and bought another one (HP this time, the heads are included in the ink carts, haven't had to clean the heads at all.)

Printer not primtimg black ink


I sounds that the black printhead inside your printer is clogged. Please try head cleaning on the printer. Regardless of what brand name you using you can actually check it on your computer. Check on the example below:

click on start / settings / printers & faxes then right click on the printer icon left click on printing preferences

Click on maintenance tab and you will see cleaning button

Color ink not printing


Ahhrgh! Don't use windex. It contains additives that can harm the printer head.
