Question about Kodak ESP C315 Wireless All-in-One Printer

1 Answer

My printer is not printing black only colours

The first thing I noticed was that the pop up telling me the black ink was low didn't appear. (The black ink cartridge was still half full) Gradually the print became fainter and then stopped altogether. i changed the b lack cartridge but it will not print. I have cleaned the head several times The test page shows no black across the top and the side bits are intermittent and shades of grey!

There must not be as same as you are saying but it may perhaps happen that, live cartridge doesnt perform due to improper heating of that printer. its heating mechanism may have failed, go to its care center and get treated...

I have a HL4040CN copier. When the message comes up that ink is low, how can I tell what color ink cartridge needs replacing


You're just going to have to keep printing until you see which cartridge is getting dry. It'll be either the black one or the colour one. This way you won't buy the wrong cartridge. If you print black text and it starts to come out grey then it's the black cartridge that needs to be replaced. The same with colour, if the picture looks faded then you'll need a new colour cartridge.

How do i mix the colours on my stylus sx115 as i have run out of black but have the other 3 colours remaining?


Conserving Black Ink When the Cartridge Is Low (For Windows Only) The window below appears when black ink runs low and there is more color ink than black ink. It appears only when plain papers is selected as the paper type, and Text is selected as the Quality Option.

The window gives you the option to either continue using black ink normally or conserve black ink by using a mixture of color inks to create black. Click the Yes button to use a mixture of color inks to create black. You will see the same window the next time you print a similar job. Click the No button to continue using the remaining black ink for the job you are printing. You will see the same window the next time you print a similar job, and again have the option to conserve black ink. Click Disable this feature to continue using the remaining black ink.

Epson sx200 printer, wont print black ink only


Many printers especially Photo ones also use colour even when printing Black. so you do need to replace the spent colour cartridge.

If you only need to print in black get a B&W printer not a colour one.

Inks


Hi, Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing. Unless you have selected "print in black & white only" your printer will "mix" the coloured inks with the black, also check the printer options to ensure you are not using the photographic quality as this will use inks very rapidly. You need to consider a couple of things, firstly the official line: Epson (and all other inkjet manufacturers) do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. The 2nd unofficial line is that it is a win-win situation for manufacturers. Firstly they get to cut down on costly warranty call outs for blocked heads (replacement printers, technician manhours, etc) and secondly they get to sell lots more inks (Ka-ching!). If you really want to print black text only (and save cash on price per-print) then a mono-laser printer is the best way as they can now be bought at inkjet prices.

Have changed Ink Black and Colour... Stil getting error Message.


Make sure the tape covering the hole on the bottom of the black cartridge is removed. and then go into the printers folder and right click on your printer icon and go into the properties of that printer and there should be something in there to tell it that you changed cartridges and you can also print a test page as well.

Black Printer cartridge


It will tell you the colour is low, regardless of the format in which you are printing. I don't believe Canon provide a way for you to disable this for their printer range, so you'll need to put in the new colour cartridge to get rid of this error. (you should however, be able to print whilst receiving this message)
