Remove the cartridge and put it back in. If same issue persists, try to do head cleaning and nozzle checks simultaneously from the computer.

Start -> Control Panel -> Printers & Faxes (Windows XP) / Printers (Windows Vista) -> Printer Icon (right click) -> Printing Preferences -> Maintenance

You should be able to see nozzle check, click it and follow the prompt. Line patterns that corresponds to the colors of the ink cartridges would be printed. If breaks on those patterns appears, continue with head cleaning. Try to do this about 3 times until all patterns are complete.

I'm getting an error code 59.60 on our HP 3015 printer. Last week I had to change the toner cartridge because we were getting a smudge on one side of the print. Could this be related? A bad printer...


Error 59.60 is an issue with the black cartridge motor starting up.
Check that connectors J5006 on the black print-cartridge drive motor and J208 on the driver PCA are seated correctly. Replace the black print-cartridge drive motor. Replace the driver PCA.

Brother DCP-150C - just installed a new black cartridge (changed colour cartridges last week!) - printer will print but page comes out blank??


This may be because ink is clogged in the printhead. ? Place the clogged cartridge in about 1/4 - 1/2 inch of warm water for a few minutes. When ink starts to slowly leak out take the cartridge out of the water and dry it using a soft cloth to "Q-tip." Then place it back in your printer and run the print head cleaning utility that comes with your printer software. You may have to run this 2-4 times before printing quality is reestablished. If your print head is destroyed, as can happen, you will have to buy a cartridge and refill that cartridge before it is fully empty.

HP 1510 all in one printer won't print black.


It might be the cable ribbon to the black cartridge. If thats the case see if there are any rips in the line itself.

Horrible ink issues..


Unless you are printing a lot in that color, my Epson Stylus photo color R300 uses black at about twice the rate as the color ones. Most packages or ink, I find, also come with two black and one of every color. All my color ones seem to emply at approximately the same time as the others.

PRINTING WITH BLACK INK CARTRIDGE ONLY; COLORED CARTRIDGE IS EMPTY.


Apparently, if you hold the "resume button" (the one next to the power button) for about five seconds after you get the message saying to replace the color ink cartridge the machine starts printing. I did this after I went to "maintenance" under "preferences" and changed ink to "black only." At first that alone did not work, but after trying the resume button for 5 secs it worked okay.
