    I have good cartridges in the printer and the black ink is very faint and i have to set the properties to best to get around this problem. Now the colors are very faded and i have sufficient color ink left.
    I have a 5500 (KMM7519323V24969LOKM) & if you look at the records, you will see that Kodak has replaaced the print head once already.
    Can you help?

I had the same problem and it needed a new printhead. If you get a paperjam, after that it pretty much means a new printhead and I had the same deal with lettering missing. Email Kodak and tell them you need a new printhead.

I have a Stylus CX 5000 with a new black ink cartrige and empty color cartriges. I only need black/white printed material. It won't print at all. What can I do to make it print just black and white...


Epson software does not permit printing when any of the cartridges are empty. It is a way to make sure you purchase more ink (It stinks, we all agree). They also use the color cartridges to make up black ink, then print the black over the top!! Again a way to make sure it uses more ink than it is supposed to.
Good thing is there are plenty of compatibles on the market that work very well and cost much less than Epson OEM's.
Sorry it is not the answer you are looking for.

Cant print in black and white when out of a color.


disregaurd any prior solutions in cleaning any contacts. that model doesnt have an electrical contact to clean. there are little magnets inside each color and black cartrige that work off a float mechanisim inside each one. when the levels get low the magnet indicates to the printer it is empty. unfortunately for you this stylis model as with all brother model printers wont work even if the color your setting up in the properties or settings feature are set to black and the black is full. its the companies way of forcing you into buying new ink. be aware though that my brother catriges cost 78.00 for the 3 color and one black set. i found these cartriges online through ebay but with one more additional black cartrige for a total of 5 not for ,for a total cost of 13.11 with free shipping. sounds too good to be true but for 13.00 it was worth a try. i have now purchased several 5 packs from them and couldnt be happiere.

Epson C82 & C84 Printers will not laydown any ink!


Sorry but It uses Durabrite ink which tends to turn into hard gel if not printed at least once a week. Its less painful and expensive to just throw the printer out and buy a new one. I recommend the canon PIXMA ip3500. It lets you remove the printhead for cleaning unlike the Epson. If you want to try your luck at unclogging the printer heres a link to a unclogging kit but be warned that results are not guaranteed!

http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/kits/Epson/K89

The C82 in addition to clogging also has a problem where the waste ink hose which is supposed to remove excess ink (so the printer dosent get clogged) gets disconnected and so the printer clogs even more. The C84 had this glitch fixed but alot of good that did!

Thanks for reading!

Nothing comes out when I print


Epson 777 will not print. No paper jam. Power light flashing; red error light on steady. Paper does not feed; if paper supply is placed deeper in feed, entire paper supply (about 12 sheets) feeds thru as one sheet normally would , without printing.

RX500 EPSOM STYLUS PHOTO PRINTER Won't Print


I used some less expensive generic ink cartridges on my RX500 and had a similar experience with the black. If you're already using the Epson brand, done the head cleaning, realignment and nozzel checks, I'm not much help. Try Epson's support at their web site.
