My Printer prints a Colored Ink. But I type as a black Font Color.Then Black Ink Has full?? pls help me


Hi Carl Montero,
Your issue may be attributed to two possible points of failure. 1.) The Nozzle is clogged, 2.) the ink is already dry inside. You can try to clean the nozzle by doing the following steps. If it does not work, try to replace the cartridge with a new one.
FINE Cartridge Cleaning
1 Press [Menu] repeatedly until appears. 2 Use [ ] or [ ] to select . 3 Press [OK]. 1 Press [Maintenance] repeatedly until appears. 2 Press [Black] or [Color].
FINE Cartridge Deep Cleaning
1 Press [Menu] repeatedly until appears. 2 Use [ ] or [ ] to select . 3 Press [OK]. 1 Press [Maintenance] repeatedly until appears. 2 Press [Black] or [Color].
Note If deep FINE Cartridge cleaning does not improve the print quality, contact a Canon service representative.

Lexmark X1290. I have been using the black cartridge....its still got ink in it and I am getting a Cartridge Missing Error. I have cleaned the cartridge and still no luck. What else can I do to fix the...


Try to clean the cartridge nozzles using the Lexmark Solution Center on your computer. Launch the application from All Programs > Lexmark 1200 Series Printer > Tools > Lexmark Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal lines. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Once done, try to print again and check if black is printing properly now. If that doesn't help, try to insert a different known working black cartridge to determine if the other is fautly.

I have the same problem but mine is with a canon mp190. also says E5 error on lcd and 2,114,0 eror when i try and scan. what can i do


According the Canon the error code means this:

E, 4/ E, 5 The FINE Cartridge cannot be recognized

The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly, or the Cartridge may not be compatible with this machine. Open the Scanning Unit (Cover), and then make sure that the FINE Cartridges are installed properly and that the installed FINE cartridges are compatible with the machine.
If the error is not resolved, the Print Head may be damaged. Contact your Canon Service representative.
The "fine cartridge" means the black printing cartridge. The black should be installed on the left and the color on the right.

Double check to make sure your cartridges are installed on the correct sides.

After verifying that they are on the appropriate sides, then turn off your printer and unplug it from the power source.

Remove and reinstall the black cartridge.

Plug the printer back in and turn it on. If the error code is still there, press the menu button and scroll using the arrows until you see the "maintenance" area on your printers display. Then press enter or "ok". Continue scrolling until you find the "clean print heads" function and then again press enter or "ok" Follow the instructions and clean the print heads at least two times.

If the cartridge is full and installed correctly, the according to Canon the print heads have trapped old ink in them and this could be cloggin the ink flow. Cleaning the print heads should solve that problem. If you still get the error code after cleaning the print heads a couple times then I suggest contacting Canon for a possible warranty repair.

Good luck!

Cannot Solve My Ink Cartridge Error!


You should run a "clean printer cartridge". You should be able to access the clean cartridge feature by going to windows control panel...selecting printers...then right clicking on your printer. Select properties...then dig around until you find the maintenence or clean head option.

Remove and check color cartridge


I cleaned mine with alcohol and Q-tip and then shook it 25 times to insure that the ink was penetrating the application lines. My hunch is it first got dirty, and then dried up on the exterior prevent additional ink from leaving the cartridge.

Did you run the Maintenance feature that is part of the printer's program?

If not, open the Maintenance page and select Head Cleaning. This cleans the head by pushing through a lot of ink thereby dissolving any dried ink that is blocking the heads. Run a Print check to tell if the heads are properly cleaned (this cleaning may need to be repeated a few times before the heads are cleaned properly).

Good luck.
