Your printer is not set as default printer, open up the printers folder--- Start -> control panel -> printers and faxes -> right click your printer and select set as default. if you have more than one printer in there, but you only own one printer, find the correct one and right click and delete the other ones.

- I have just changed the black ink and now it wont print so I have changed the black ink again and it still wont print anything black - any ideas


The black ink nozzle in the print head might be blocked. Print a test page with a huge black image. Like: just start word, create a square through "illustrations" and fill it completely with black. Print it once or twice and see if finally the black ink may come out.

Through printer properties (windows control panel) there might be additional cleaning options.

My HP C4780 PRINTER WILL PRINT A TEST PAGE BUT NOTHING ELSE. How do I get it to print?


Check the settings in Windows Print Manager.

Make sure that the paper quality matches what is in the printer. If set to glossy, minimal ink is deposited on the page. Also, check the print quality - draft quality provides a minimal amount of ink as well.

The black ink on my Brother DCP-130C won't print and it's a brand new ink cartridge. I thought it was a defected cartridge so I bought another one, same thing. The other 3 colours print ok though....


I have the same problem. Everything on the printer is working just fine. It'll do a test page just fine, so everything's working right. The %$^ thing just won't print. It makes noise like it's printing when you give it a print job, but it spits out blank pages.

My HP deskjet 2050 all-in-one printer only shoots out blank paper and won't print. It used to say there was no paper in it, which there was. It scans & prints just fine - just won't print...


Any error messages on the printer digital screen or the desktop? I take it the "The ink is fine" means that there is ink in the cartridges!

Try a test print via the Control Panel> Printers and Faxes> properties > Print test page.

Our printer wont print out papers because it says its low on ink but we've bought ink and put it in, but it still wont print


Have you tried printing a test page from the printer itself.
There must be a menu on the printer through which you can print a test page or alignment page.

If it does print through that then it means that the printer is fine and there is some software glitch in the computer which needs to be fixed. But if in case it does not print anything at all through that as well then it means that there is something wrong with the hardware of the printer and needs to be taken care by Epson itself.

Put ink cartridge in printer and now it won't print


You might have to do a MAINTENANCE on it. Start, Settings, Ptinters and Faxes, Rt click your printer, Properties and somewhere in there is Print Test Page or Clean Print Heads. Does this do anything?

You can also hold down one of the buttons on the printer while turning it on and force it to do non-stop test prints. Turn off to stop
