The option to clean the printhead is on the Kodak AiO Home Center, when you open it you need to click on the Question Mark (?) and then, under General Links, click on "Maintenance", then a new window pops up and you will see the option to clean the printhead.
Although, most likely it still won't work, so I recomend you to call Kodak AiO Printer support at  1-800-421-6699 to have your printhead replaced.

Brother MFC-290c printer does not print black anymore. Test print page color ok but not black printing. What is the problem?


The problem is either:

* out of BLACK ink -- replace the ink-cartridge

* clogged ink-jets -- the ink is not spraying onto the paper, so run a few print-head-cleaning cycles

* dead electronics -- not triggering the jets to spray ink, so replace the printer

Don't print the black color


Doing reference on your issue. Double check the ink cartridge to make sure that the cartridge is correctly installed. Also be sure that the black ink cartridge used is compatible with the machine.

The next thing to do is a cartridge cleaning as the belief is that the print head is blocked. If you have done a thurough cleaning, the next thing to do is replace the black ink cartridge to be certain the ink cartridge is not faulty.

I have included print head cleaning instructions in case you have not done this cleaning process.

here is some information from the Brother support site:

If one or more of the ink colors are missing from pages printed by your machine (i.e. received faxes, copies and/or documents printed from the PC etc), nozzles in the print head may be clogged, or the ink cartridge in question may not be installed correctly. Verifying that the ink cartridges are installed correctly and/or cleaning the print head may solve the problem.

Cleaning the print head may solve the problem. When cleaning the print head, you are given the option to clean BLACK ONLY, one of the three colors (CYAN, YELLOW, or MAGENTA), or all four colors at once. For this issue we recommend cleaning only the affected color. If more than one color is missing then choose ALL.

When the machine completes cleaning the print head, press Color Start. A Print Quality Check Sheet will print.

Printer will not print black ink.


I had this problem recently with my IP90. Both the black and color heads were clogged. After running the "canned" routines several times to clean the heads and deep clean the heads...still didn't help...here's what I did:

1. open the top lid to have the cartridges that are inserted in the print head to the middle of the printer.
2. remove both cartridges
3. What is left there is the print head..slightly move it to the right and gently lift the print head lock.
4. Grasp the print head and lift it out.
5. Have severasl paper towels hand and know that you will have color and bw ink on your fingers
6. Put the print head on the paper towel
7. Pour rubbing alcohol on the blk and color heads and let them sit of about 10-15 minutes.
8. after that dry the heads and re-insert them in the printer
9. I put new cartridges in the printer and ran clean and deep clean a few times.
10. May color and black and white print is back!

Hope this helps.

Unable to print BLACK


The machine should begin cleaning automatically, and the LCD will alternately show "CLEANING" and "PLEASE WAIT". When the machine completes its cleaning cycle, the LCD will display the date and time. Print the Print Quality Check Sheet and see if all colors are present:

    1. Press the Ink Management key.
    2. Use the up or down navigation key to select TEST PRINT.
    3. Press Set to confirm your choice.
    4. Use the up or down navigation key to select PRINT QUALITY.
    5. Press Set to confirm your choice. Press the Color(Colour) Start key to print the Test Sheet.
If one or more of the colors is still missing from the printed page, cleaning the print head may resolve this problem. When cleaning the print head, you are given the option to clean BLACK ONLY, three colors at a time (CYAN, YELLOW, and MAGENTA), or all four colors at once. For this issue we recommend cleaning only the affected color. If more than one color is missing then select ALL. Follow the steps listed below to clean the print head:

Cleaning the Print Head
  1. Press the Ink Management key.

  2. Use the up or down navigation key to select CLEANING.

  3. Press Set to confirm your choice.

  4. Use the up or down navigation key to select the color that is not printing
    -OR-
    Select ALL if more than one color is not printing.

  5. Press Set to confirm you choice.

  6. The machine should begin cleaning automatically, and the LCD will alternately show "CLEANING" and "PLEASE WAIT". When the machine completes its cleaning cycle, the LCD will display the date and time.

  7. Test by printing the "Print Quality Check Sheet":

    1. Press the Ink Management key.
    2. Use the up or down navigation key to select TEST PRINT.
    3. Press Set to confirm your choice.
    4. Use the up or down navigation key to select PRINT QUALITY.
    5. Press Set to confirm your choice. Press the Color(Colour) Start key to print the Test Sheet.
If one or more of the ink colors is still missing from the printed page, repeat the print head cleaning steps listed above up to 4 more times. After each cleaning, print the Print Quality Check Sheet to see if there is any improvement.

I hope it helps!!!

I had exaclty same problem - black not printing - was about to buy a new printer but did the following as a last resort about a month ago - remove the ink cartridges - removed the head and sat it on an a tissue - into the 'well' where the printer cartridges sit I dropped into there a very small amount of water as if to 'wash it through' where the ink would flow, (about a quarter tea spoon) - agitated it a bit - this flushed thru the gaps were the ink goes - I cleaned it all up - dried it with a tissue - put it all back together - it works fine now ! This was a last resort option for me but I guarantee it did work !

Printer won't print color


when you change the ink cartridges you are NOT changing the print head. The print head is in the carrier. If the print head has become clogged or worn then usually it needs to be replaced. Unfortunately it us probably cheaper to buy a new printer.
