Hello, our C66 printer won't print. It has been unused for about 2 years, we've put all new ink cartridges in, downloaded the latest drivers, and nothing gets printed. You can go through all the test...


The most likely cause is the print head nozzles are blocked with dried ink and inserting new ink cartridges won't fix this problem. You need a new print head.
Print heads are not cheap, you may be better putting your money towards a new printer.

Says to replace cartridge which i did but it still wont print.


Why isn't any ink coming out of a new ink cartridge that has just been installed?

The ink cartridge may have a plastic tag covering the print head, which should be removed before the cartridge is installed. If the tag has been removed and the problem persists, there may be air bubbles blocking the print head. In this case, you can try using the print head cleaning function of your printer or leave the ink cartridge in your printer for about an hour to allow the air bubbles to rise to the top of the ink cartridge.



What should be done if the ink cartridge doesn't print or some of the colors don't print?

The nozzle may be clogged with dried ink. The print head should be blotted with a damp lint-free cloth to remove the dried ink. If this does not work, try soaking the ink cartridge in water for a few minutes. To soak the ink cartridge, place it in a Styrofoam cup and fill the cup with water until the ink cartridge is halfway immersed in water. If the ink cartridge does not print after this is done, try soaking the ink cartridge overnight.

Hope it helped...

Put new ink cartridge into my Lexmark 2300 and now it won't print


Make sure you remove the print head protective tape. Also try doing a head cleaning and cartridge alignment page. If it still does not print check the cartridge well, you will see a assortment of copper pint that contact the circuit tracing on the print head, with the printer off get some achohol and a Q-tip and clean the pins there may be ink residue on them.

Black ink cartridge wont print, have installed a new ink refill still no joy. Will print in all other colours.


Well if you already installed a new black ink cartridge and still wont print, then try cleaning your printer head. It can be that the some ink was hardened and got stuck preventing you to print a black color.

Printer wont print black.already replaced with new ink but still wont print black


did you take the tape off the new cartridge and is the print head burned out for the black? if you installed the diagnostic's on it then run it and see what it says, otherwise expect the print head to be cooked, however it is possible to get a bad ink cartridge try tapping it on your finger and see if ink comes out if it does not then the ink cartridge is dried out or no good, about %15 of print cartridges are bad on just about any brand printer some more than others.

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking


you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.

Ink Cartridge


Some of Epson's cartridges went bad that way. It may be a bad cartridge. Get a new one, pull that one out and see what happens. If it works, call Epson for a refund. They had a class action suit for that type of thing, they lost and paid off. I would think they will help you right away.

Printer doesn't print even with new ink cartridges.


Take out the Cartridge & get a new one if the problem persists then get the printer software reinstalled & if still it is not printing then clean up the cartridge head with cotton swabs dipped in hot water!
This should clean the head & black will be on paper

DO THIS AS FINAL REFUGE
If still its not working then there's some problem in the copper contact surface in the printer on the cradle so get a new Printer.

Cartridge


Your printer is actually complaining about the print head and not the individual ink cartridges. There is a known problem with the cartridge clogging up and overheating when many CDs are printed.

First try to remove and reseat the actual print head: remove the ink cartridges first, then pull up the grey lever and take out the print head. Check for visual damage and/or clean but be careful with this.

Reseat the cartridge, put the ink tanks back in.

If this does not result in a working printer, order a new printhead from your local supplier.
