Your printer itself is functioning ok, but the colour ink is not coming out. Have you successfully printed with this colour cartridge before or is it new. It could be a dud if it is new. Also, you need to manuallt clean your printhead with solution and cotton buds until no residie left. This should resolve your issue.

Printing black vague block on one side of paper on a testpage, but NOT on the testpage generated from within the lasermenu itself. How is this possible?

TheSamsung ML1210is alaser printer, so it shouldnt have been soaked in ink?

In any case, you have broken the contact for thelaserjet cartridge, which is unable to get charged for imaging your stuff that you want to print.

You will need to get a new cartridge. Take out this one and do not use it anymore. You will cause the cartridge waste hopper to overflow and potentially leak toner all over the inside of your 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.

Non printing epson c20ux

Sounds like color cartridge ran out. Were u using color to print black?

Try new color cartridge.

Then if you don't need color go in and set to use black cartridge to print black (text).

If you need color on something only takes a minute to turn color back on.

Since printer worked you can go in and select black which uses the black cartridge and if it prints gives validity to a bad/empty color cartridge.

Good luck.

Lexmark X1100 printer will not print black

I came up with a work around for printing black.

I changed the black cartridge with the color cartridge.
Then when I have a letter to print, I change change (or write) the letter text to yellow, red or blue.
Then I can print out a letter.

By printing the text as yellow, red or blue the cartridge will try to print with only 1 color, but will print out black.

If you do not use one of these primary printing colors the out put will be unusable.

I can not of course print out pictures.

Printer wont print

Did you tried the testpage via PC or did you use the built-in testpage, starting with the printers buttons ?
Do you use refilled cartridges ?
Sometimes these cartridges need to be "resetted" after refill, what some refillers do forget.
Do you know if the drum is ok ?
What errors are displayed ?
Paperjam warnings can also come from the sensors for the paper.
