Black ink will not print


Have you tried setting the color to black cartridge only. You may be printing the black with a combination of colored inks. I occasionally have a similar problem. Sometimes I can get the black to work by taking a paper towel dampened with distilled water and holding it against the cartridge print head until I see black ink coming out. Replace the cartridge and try printing again. If this doesn't work try a new cartridge and run through your Printer Settings, making sure they are all set properly.

Having trouble fitting new ink cartridge


Hi, when an ink cartridge runs low in your HP Officejet 5610 All-in-One printer, you will see a message on the printer's display screen. Faded-looking text or pictures also indicate low ink. Ensure print quality by replacing ink cartridges when they run low.

Instructions

Things You'll Need:

* HP #27 or #56 black, #22 color or #58 color photo print cartridge, or compatible equivalent



Turn printer on if it is off. Never attempt to change the ink cartridge if the printer is off. If it is off, it will not properly position or release ink cartridges, and attempting to change the ink cartridges may damage the printer.


Open the print-carriage door, located on the right side of the printer. The print carriage will automatically move into the access area.

Push down on the top edge of the cartridge you are replacing to pop it out of its slot. Remove the print cartridge and discard or recycle.


Pull off the protective tape on the new print cartridge using the pink tab. Do not touch any part of the cartridge except the black plastic. Touching the contacts or ink nozzles under the protective tape can damage the cartridge and result in poor print quality.


Hold the cartridge upright and push gently forward into the empty ink cartridge slot until it clicks.


Close the print-carriage door.

I have a Xerox 6250DP. it was working fine until I replace the black toner. Now, the quality of impression is poor and the black color appears and dissapears


I bet you used a Generic toner (Mediaq Science?)
this will contaminate the developer and cause poor prints. Vacuum, Replace developer, replace toner (Xerox Brand). Good to go.

Pictures are printed with stripes and poor color


make sure your printer printed an initialisation or alignment sheet once you installed the new cartridge.
you can try a partial reset of the printer and check if the printer prints fine,also there is an option of cartridge calibration in the printer properties or the printer software installed in your computer

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.
