I had the same problem for quite some time, but then realized that I didn't fully close the door that covers the ink cartridges... closing that door firmly, then hitting cancel (orange button) did the trick.

Did you install the cartridge correctly? Sometimes (and it does happen frequently), is that when installing a cartridge, often you forget to remove the plastic strip that separates the toner from the inner drum, check for that.

Can i print documents using black ink only when other inks are empty?


All the ink cartridges need to have ink in them to allow you to print, even if you only want to print in black only.

I have the HP photosmart C6280 printer.. 2007 edition and it has all different color ink cartridges, the yellow ink is almost out so it will not let me print anything. I am just trying to print off a word...


It seems simple enough, but this is one of the most effective ways of fixing printer cartridge error. Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached.
To reattach the cartridge check the following steps :
turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head.
Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report.
Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

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.

My printer wont print color!


Hi.
First check if you are using compatible cartridges for the printer. Use the following weblink to check for compatible cartridges for lexmark printers:

http://www.lexmarkstore.com/store/lexmark/DisplayProductFinderPage

if using correct carts and still issue, then you may try the following to clean the cartridges and print contacts:

Remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and check if it prints color.

To clean cartridge nozzles:

Click on "Start," go to "All Programs," and down to the Lexmark. Click on the "Solution Center." Next, click on the "Maintenance" tab. Select "Clean to fix horizontal strips." This will produce a printed page.
The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps.
If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean to fix horizontal strips" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below:
1. Please open the "Solution Center" again and go to the "Maintenance" Tab.
2. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge (or cartridges) from the printer.
3. Get a damp paper towel.
4. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
5. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean. Also, wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier).
6. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
7. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.
8. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge install."
9. Repeat the "Clean to fix horizontal strips" one more time. If this fails to address the problem, the entire procedure may need repeating.

Hope dis helps u...
:-)

Printer not printing


did you do a test page and re aline the cartridges? when you removed the cartridge did you go through your computer to the "safely remove" program for the ink cartridges?? of just take the things out.?
there is a proper procedure for removing and replacing ink cartridges. if the machine doesn't know the replacement was made it will still think you are low.
if you have the manual for operation look for the "how to replace ink" and follow the directions.
there is also a plastic film that covers the new cartridge head and it needs to be removed. did you do this?? Or a pull tab at the end of the thing.

My epsonstylus cx4200 wont print with black ink.


Please ensure that you have removed (Completely) all yellow tape on the top of the cartridge.If it is not completely removed a vacuum can form preventing the flow of ink.

Run a few cleaning cycles.

Try a local print test...

As for thr G4 sorry but I can help you except to power off all devices, power up and reboot.

It just wont work


Move the ink cartridge carriage (the printhead) to the middle of the printer like you're going to change cartridges.  Take out all the ink cartridges.  There should be two black springs on either side of the printhead.  Remove these and the printhead should pop out.  Clean the nozzels (the little parts that squirt out ink) and reassemble.

If this doesn't work, then you'll have to replace the printhead.
