    Mel,



    Unplug the printer--> remove the cartridges (as you do to change them) in order to reset the printer---> plug again the printer --> set the cartridges again in the printer--> print a test page

    This process will not damage the chip



    I hope this helps. If so, please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly

WE HAVE A KODAK ESP-3 AND HAVE PUT IN NEW INK (BLACK) AND IT WON'T PRINT. THE COLOR SHOWS EMPTY BUT IT'S ALSO NEW. ONLY WANT TO PRINT BLACK BUT IT WON'T PRINT EITHER JUST SHOWS LOW INK ETC.


First: you need both ink cartridges for the printer to function properly.

Second: You may have a bad printhead, do the following:



Clean the print head then print a demo sheet.

  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Print head Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.

If the Demo print is bad- IE: no black, blurry print etc., then you may need to replace the print head:

Error code 0xc19a0023


I went crazy trying to fix my HP D7560, days and days of print ink failure, unable to align cartridges, until to clean print heads. My symptom is that the black ink started to print only in a light gray. I tried everything from running Tools, changing to new cartridges, even buying a new print head (which was not genuine HP, they don't make them anymore, and the new print head would'n't complete in diagnostics without error). I love this printer and didn't want to part with it. So I searched for days and tried many solutions without success. Until I found this one last solution - it my last ditch effort. The solution is to get a bowl of very hot water (not boiling), remove the print head from the printer and place the print head directly in the hot water (sounds risky! but I did it). I watched as the bowl filled with black ink. The instructions said to let it sit for 5-10 minutes, but I couldnt' believe the amount of ink that poured out of the print head. So, I kept replacing the water and shaking the print head carefully in the water to loosen the trapped ink. I repeated this step (replacing water) until it was no longer producing black cloud of ink and water was fairly clear. I carefully dried the print head with a paper towel, let sit for approx 5 minutes to dry some more, shook it vigorously a few times to shake out any water, and then lastly hit it with a blast of compressed air to ensure all water droplets were gone. I put the print head back in, re-inserted the cartridges and the printer ran through diagnostics automatically - aligning cartridges and printing a test page - it was BEAUTIFUL!!!! Until I tried this, nothing worked. I'm hoping this solution will help others. Good luck.

I have put new inks into my printer epson dx4450 and I cant get the black to print? I have tried 2 new black catridges.


Please forgive me for suggesting the most simple of solutions, but.....many times, people forget to remove the tape that covers the ink ports on a new cartridge. If you have already done that, forgive me for thinking in such a simple manner.

My black ink ran out so I replaced the ink


Hi:
I have used the printer series that you have for years, and once in awhile, I get a new cartridge that won't immediately print. Often, there is just a bit of dried ink residue on the print head, and that won't allow the cartridge to work correctly.

Some simple things to try are :

1) Remove the black cartridge. and take a damp paper towel and gently swab the print head area. Next, apply some pressure to the sides of the black cartridge, until you see black ink oozing out of the print head. Repeat if needed. Once the ink starts flowing, blot off the excess, and install the cartridge.

If you can't get ink to flow, then the cartridge might be bad. Most of them have an expiration date on the packaging.

We repalced the black ink cartridge but it wont print black


Most ink jet cartridges have "multiple" protectors to keep the ink from leaking or drying out and the electrical connectors from getting damaged before they are installed into the printer. You should be removing a plastic cap device for the ink, and typically, a piece of clear tape that protects some copper traces on the back of the cartridge. Make sure both are removed. If it still does not work take it back to who you bought it from and have them check to make sure there is ink in your new cartridge. Typically, you can shake it and hear a liquid sound. Good luck.

Epson DX4450 printer


What about it? Huh? Give us a clue will ya? You want to know how to do it? When to do it? Or are you telling us you are doing it?

Put some detail in your posts please. And why post it under a generic problem for all printers. It's fairly obvious your problem relates to an Epson DX4450

Solution: Clean The Print Head Nozzles (Windows) MP500 / MP800
lean The Print Head Nozzles (Windows) The following contains instructions to check the nozzles for poor print quality and perform cleanings of the print head nozzles as necessary. If print results are faint or streaks are printed, the print head nozzles may be clogged. Those phenomena can be improved by performing print head cleanings or print head deep cleanings. nozzlecheckflow_en.jpg
