Sounds as if the black portion of the printhead may have become dried. I would recommend running1-3 cleaning cycles in an attempt to pull through more ink. If you have any doubts about which colours are coming through do a Nozzle Check from the printer/printer software.

SOURCE: Use of black ink

My husband answered this for me- it takes different colors to make black, therefore it uses some of the color ink

Hi There You can try/

Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

My office jet G85 won't print. No error messages appear,it has a new color cartridge,it copies, but won't print from my computer.


If it copies ok, then the issue is either the way it is cabled to computer or the print driver software settings on pc.... How is it connected via USB? Check port and correct driver is in windows/control panel/printers. Reinstall.

My HP Officejet 6500 Wireless printer won't print in black when trying to print from Microsoft Office Word and Microsoft Office Excel or PDF. The ink cartridge is new. I have turned the printer off and...


I also have the OfficeJet 6500 and had the same problem. The black text was printing using a mix of colored inks instead of the black ink, resulting in a grey, fuzzy text. I finally found a solution. In each application under Page Setup, there is an option called "Format for". Mine had been set to "Any Printer". I changed that to "Officejet 6500 E709n [830E4A]" and now it prints the black just fine. I have a Mac running 10.4.11. Hope this helps.

Can't print multiple copies


On your Brother's drop- down menu, left click on PRINTING PREFERENCES . On the BASIC tab, choose the number of prints in the COPIES box, then left click on APPLY. If that does not work, go into PROPERTIES, left click on the SECURITY tab, and check that you have authorization to run multiple prints. Also, check your PRINT SPOOLING mode to make sure it is activated, and check authorizations in OFFICE 2007- it may be set to restrict multiple color pints.
