Some machines have a lock so the scan head doesn't get damaged, make sure that it is unlocked if your machine has this feature.
Does the color cartridge have ink as well, as some machines do not print if eather of the cartridges is empty.
Good Luck.

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.".

X4270 won't copy after replacing black cartridge. It did run an alignment page, however.


Try this approach:
  1. On the printer operator panel, on Copy mode, press Options.
  2. Select Maintenance.
  3. Select Clean Cartridges
Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
Try to print your document again to verify that Copying is properly functioning now.

I refilled the ink with a refill kit


You can't reset the ink level on all Canon Pixma printers.You need to turn off the function on printer to show the ink level.On your printer this happen with push consistently buttons for black copy (for turn of level on black cartridge) and color copy (for turn of level in color cartridge). The printer
shows empty cartridges but it will printing.

Brother MFC-440CN won't print color


Did you use generic carts?

Do use only original brother ink carts!
Only these have special cleaning fluids mingled with the ink.

There are several advantages, too:


You can run a special cleaning mode (DO insert original carts at first!!!)

Press menue then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow-up.
machine should switch to maintenance mode (buttons will flash).
press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink within the tubes and the print head and run a special cleaning routine. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy to run a power cleaning. leave the maintenance mode by pressing 9 then 9.

The machine should print without proböems. If there is a poor quality left, the printhead is affected by bad ink and cant be fixed anymore.

Black ink clogged


Did you use generic ink? The generic ink has the wrong ink filled in which destroys the ph!
brother printers must be run with dye-ink and special additives. Those additives are always missing within the generic carts!

Do use a original brother ink cart, make sure ALL carts are full with ink, placed well and are secured! Run the following procedure afterwards:

press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow up (tel-index). machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink 
within tubes and ph and do some special cleaning procedures. When finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. machine will run a powerpurge.
When finished press 9 then 9 to leave the maintenance mode.
Print a quality test print by pressing ink Management etc.

If there is no BK afterwards the ph is defenitly clogged and cant be fixed anymore!

Photocopying


According to " HP Officejet R, PSC 500 and Color Copier - General Copying Issues and Solutions", under the problem heading "Black is not Black", notes that:

"The unit will perform mono (or black) copies using the color cartridge to create a composite black in Normal and Best modes. This is necessary to create the correct grayscale shades. NOTE: The HP PSC 500 all-in-one product cannot perform black copies. Scan the image in and print it out in greyscale.

The color cartridge may be out of one color of ink. Run a self-test page to verify that all the colors are there. Replace the cartridge if they are not."

In other words, the device only uses the black ink cartridge when used as a computer printer. When used as a stand-alone copier, it uses the color ink cartridge, and all three ink colors must be present and working to give a black and white copy. Perhaps you can refill the color cartridge with black ink in all chambers?
