My printer is printing the black text sketchily...some of the text is missing, blurred or too light. My printer is fairly new and has not printed much yet, I don't know if I am getting to the end of my...


hi e.... two things.... first of all if that is the original black cartridge it did not come with a full amount of ink. they just give you enough to get started. secondly, if the ink cartridges are not used at least once a week they tend to get dry at the tiny port where the ink comes out and not work as they should. you can remove the cartridge and physically check it for ink left. that is a good starting point. joe

I cant seem to print text. i can only print graphics. i recently put in new ink cartridges, tried to print a page of only text and the pages were blank. tried to print another page with text and graphics,...


Have you tried printing text in different colour if that works the black jets are blocked- try running the cleaning cycle to clear (it may not use black ink in graphics)

My HP C6150 prints pictures fine but the text is incomplete. I have tried different ink cartridges and have cleaned print head and done a cartridge alignment. What else is there?


1. During the cleaning of the print heads you probably clog some of the jets that distribute the ink.
If you didn't use the proper cleaning procedure you may have damaged the print heads.
the color heads are probably not affected therefore the pictures prints come out clear.

Canon IP4300 - the two black ink cartridges


No!

The large cartridge is used for text only printing.
The smaller black cartridge is used for black in images such as pictures.

You have a "C (cyan) M (magenta) Y (yellow) and B (black) color system. This actually saves the color inks for you. If the Black was not there, you would need to make a composite black from the color inks.

My black ink will not print. Do I have to have


The larger of the two black cartridges is used for text only printing.

The saller cartridge is used for black in graphic images or pictures.

This saves you color ink . It allows you to put the black ink on the image without making the color inks blend the black ink.

I have a Lexmark x1100 Series printer and cannot print anything now. This printer has been working but it stopped printing. Do not have the CD.


Need more info. Any error messages? Did it just stop pumping ink on paper. Are you trying to print black text or color picture? If no error, your cartridges may be empty. If black text does not work, try color picture. Usually one cartridge goes empty and the other still has ink. If color pic prints replace black cartridge. If neither black or color prints at all, it may be a toasted printhead

If you need to reinstall the software, uninstall it, then go to lexmark.com and get new drivers from their site. RESTART COMPUTER! Reinstall from the downloaded file.

If all the above fail to make it work, it is hosed, shop for new printer.

Black text d not print


If the printer has been left for some weeks with an empty black cartridge then I suspect the print head is clogged.
To clean the print head, firstly remove it.
Remove each cartridge quickly and turn it upside down so ink does not drip out.
Flush warm water with a drop of detergent through the metal meshes at the bottom front inside of the print head unit. Continue untill the water coming out of the bottom of the print head is clear.
Then flush through with clean warm water for about 30secs.
Shake as much water as possible out of the unit.
Replace the cartridges quickly to avoid ink dripping out.
Undertake a nossle (head) clean on the printer until printing correctly.

Hope this helps.

Check that your print quality is not set to "Draft" in Windows.
Check for ink residue on your color cartridge.
Try replacing the color cartridge

If all else fails...
Update the printer driver using software from the vendor website.
