I just ran out of black ink while printing invitations, i replaced the carterage wtih a new one i bought last week, now it doesn't print black at all. i have test printed and set it to clean but no...


Try unpluging the power to it for about 5 min or so and plugging it back in, that sometimes does the trick. Is the printer even recognizing that you changed the carterage? Sometimes you have to manualy reset that too.

Take it back if it is new. If you've had it for a while and it's been sitting unused there may be dried ink in the print head. A visit to the Lexmark website might be useful for any troubleshooting. Good luck.

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.

Color ink cartridge says empty i just filled it


When you put in a "new" cartrage the printer sens an electrical charge to the cartrage to set it up properly. So I would treat this as a new cartrage, rather than a refilled one. Go to the printer menu and re install the ink cartrage in question, it should recognise it and start the function as a new one, good luck

you need to replace the printer head this is easy to do. first take out old ink cartrages. in the ink tray you will see a bulls eye. right above the bulls eye there is a small black tab. push tab to release printerhead.( call kodak at the customer service help line for new printer head they will ship 1 to 2 days) put new printhead in place and gently snap back into place replace with new ink cartrages.
