The black ink wont work, even though i have put in a brand new cartridge. the tri color works fine, but the black ink must have something funky going on


Try the following things:
  1. remove the cartridge make sure that you have removed any tape or guards that came with the cartridge to keep the ink from leaking
  2. try gently squeezing the cartridge. if you can get a drop to come out of the cartridge.
  3. if you cannot get a drop out, put the head of the cartridge on a piece of a dampened napkin or paper towel. You should see some black bleeding out of the head. Sometimes, it can take awhile for the ink to loosen up.
  4. reinstall the cartridge and run the head cleaning program for your printer if you have one

Black ink won't print even though the cartridge is


Hi,

It could be you just have a bad cartridge, If it's new, take it back and get a new one to make sure it's not the cartridge. If you get the new one and it still doesn't print black, then you have a bad print head. Meaning it would need to go to a service dealer to replace or repair the print head.

Thanks Mark

Epson 830u Printer Red light stays on even with new ink


I realised that I had to replace both the ink cartridges even though I only wanted to replace the black for it to work. Once I replaced both the black and colour cartridge the red light went off. Thanks

Replaced black ink cartridge and it says its low


Some newer printers, such as Lexmark, will have a place in the properties app that allow you to "tell" the printer the cartridge is new. Check yours and see, it fixed mine.

Cannot get yellow to print


I had the same problem with the yellow cartridge. Yellow quit printing, put in a new yellow and still would not print yellow. I had a help file, don't know where I got it, but it suggested replacing the black ink cartridge also, even though the black wasn't low yet. Replaced the black, ran a few nozzle cleans and everything worked fine. Don't know why. Try it
