Question about Epson C64 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Won't print black at all

It was working fine, then I tried to print an application form and only the color parts printed, no black at all. The black is not light or spotty, just no evidence at all on the paper of black ink. The cartridge is only a week old, ordered from Epson. I took out the black cartridge, shook it and replaced. There is ink in the cartridge and on the receiver part below it, but still no black printing. Printer works fine other than that.

Sounds like the JEt for the Black might have clogged or the print head has malfunctioned.

Lexmark pro 900 will not print color


Try to check your printing preferences if it's set to print using all available ink or check if it's set to print in black and white. To do that, on the application that you're printing from, click on File > Print > Preferences/Properties.

Also, make sure that the firmware of your printer is up to date. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update.

Why won't my Lexmark 5600- 6600 Series Printer print in color?


It could be the print setting on the application where you're printing from. Before you send your print job and hit "Print" button on your computer, check in the Printing Preferences and make sure it is not set to print "Using black ink only.".

If you are certain that your printer online properties indicates color printing and you can get 'test print' in color (via Printer properties or Printer built-in menu), I would first check that your application is not overriding the default settings (e.g. such as proof/draft mode printing in mono or B&W) or try another application.

If no applications won't print in colors, I would try to re-install the Printer Drivers specific to your windows version.

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.

Installed new black cartridge in Deskjet 810C printer and after doing this it will only print in pink color. Please help.


Make certain that the cover is off the jets - if you forgot to pull the strip off or it broke leaving part of the tape on the cartridge, it won't work. Try to do a clean process on the cartridge. If that doesn't work, and you don't have another printer to try the cartridge in, return it to the place you bought it and get another new one. If the printer is printing pink, the color cartridge is probably empty also so that it cannot make black from the other colors. These sound like refilled cartridges - OEMs would have failed with some form of error code or warning.

My hp officeject 6300 series printer not printing colors but working fine with black. Is anyone would like to let me know the problem. Both cartrindges are almost new.


Check to be sure the cartridges are in the right slots.
Print a test page, if it prints in color.
Then it is the application your using to print.
"It may be set to print in black or gray scale only."

Run the the menu on the front panel and make sure Color is on.
I have one just like it. 99% of the time it is the application switching off the color. Double check the color cartridge and make sure the machine acknowledges the insertion of a new color cartridge. If not it will default to the black ink only.

Good luck!
Hope this helps.

New tri-color cartridge has a problem. I can't see what.


I have an HP Photsmart C4100 printer. I purchased remanufactured ink cartridges (both black and tri-colored) from Vivasmart. The black one works fine, but when I installed the tri-color, I got an error message that says "Print cartridge problem" The following print cartridge has a problem:
Tri-color.
And I can't print. The screen on my printer says "Remove and check color cartridge." I have done this several times and it still won't print. I have turned off the power, removed the cartridges, and unplugged the unit, but it still didn't help. Any suggestions?

I have all the right ink in the cartridge , but printer did not print in color


Please make sure that the cartridge of the printer is not and working properly. You can test it form sending a test page to the printer form printer properties. If the test page is all right then check the application (which you are using) properties for color print and the default print properties of the printer. Hope the problem will solve if the cartridge is ok and not dry.
