Dell 725 printer won't print black, only green

My printer, just installed after sitting for a year, will not print in black ink, only in green. I have seen others who say buying a new cartridge will not help, so what is the solution?

Are you using Dell Series 6 ink cartridges?

Unplug the printer from the wall. Now remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. This will reset any error messages the printer has.

Plug everything back in and power on the printer. Now remove the Dell Series 6 Color cartridge. Make sure the tape is off the cartridge and reseat the cartridge. Then close the printer and it will print an alignment page. Any error messages?

Dell Series 6 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges

Dell Series 6 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It is possible the cartridge has a bad sensor. Try taking it back to the place of purchase for a replacement.

725 printer prints constanty on its own when not called for


If it's printing jibberish or "ASCII Garbage" then you probably have the wrong print driver installed.
Uninstall the print driver, disconnect the printer, reboot and reinstall the driver plugging the printer back into the PC when the installation software prompts you to.

Can't print and when i did got green color


Check the level of your black ink. Double click on your printer icon. This should bring up Dell solution center. Click maintenance and it show the level of your black and color ink. If it appears you have black ink you might try clicking on your menu file, print click on preferences, check print black and white only. If you don't get a printed page. You're for sure out of black ink.
If you get a black printed copy, Double click on your printer icon, click on the maintenance tool to clean and test nozzles.
