Printer no black, already went thru printer's clean printhead and even cleaned print head by running alcohol thru the ink lines


Alcohol is not the way to clean a print head. Simply run the hottest tap water into the ink inlet and print head for several seconds. Since print heads create heat to form the ink droplets needed to form a letter or graphic; running hot water will not DAMAGE the sensitive heads. Alcohol is fine for removing a film (Like fingerprints) from the surface and contacts, but not to be used internally within the head itself.
May as well get a new Black Cart now.

hello,

Try to reconfigure your printer setting and then run diagnostic on your printer to know the status of your printer if it still supports the new toner , printer heads you install.

Thanks

HP 6940 won't print black-new cartridge installed-prints color but no black


In all likelihood your print head has become clogged at the black ink outlet. Be aware that printheads can BURN OUT if you keep trying to print and there's insufficient ink reaching the printhead. The ink flow is relied upon to prevent overheating of the tiny resistors at the printhead. Best bet is to remove the cartridges from the printhead and then remove the printhead and try to clean it in warm water. You will find many youtube videos on suggestions for cleaning the printheads on HP printers. Do a google search for your model. If all else fails you can order replacement printheads for the part that has failed. They are not cheap so price compare. Oftentimes they will cost nearly as much as a new printer!

I have a HP Designjet100 Plus. The black went from ok to light to nothing. I have cleaned the printer head manually and thru the maintainance setting on the machine. Any suggestions? Do i need to buy a new...


You can try to disassemble the printhead and check for contamination.
First remove cap 1

than using a small flat screwdriver disassemble printhead (engagement points 2 and 3)

Warning - a printhead is filled with 8 ml ink

After disassembly - clean the printhead with fluid compatible with pigment ink (for black color) or compatible with water based ink (color printheads)

during reassembly - don't forget to fill the printhead with ink (2/3 of its volume)

I have an HP Photosmart C3180 printer color ink issue. Instead of printing yellow its printing pink. I've cleaned the head multiple times and the ink cartridge is brand new. Please advise. Thanks!


If what you're saying is still the result after cleaning everything up, there must already be something wrong with the printhead because the printheads are the one's that are responsible for the mixture of the ink cartridges.
Try calling HP Tech Support. They might still be able to replace the printheads for you.

Black ink not coming through


I had the same problem. Ended up replacing the black/yellow "printhead" and that corrected the problem.

Cant print in black


Do the cleaning procedure twice. Use a original brother ink cart! If you are lucky, the printhead is not clogged. If you dont see any black blocks when printing the testsheet, the head is definitly clogged. You cant clean the printhead because of an internal filter!
