Hi Barry,

Remove all the cartridges, Clean the Golden ( electrical ) contacts with lint free cloth.
Reinstall the Cartridges and wait for the printer to align.

If the issue does not resolve,
Press the Setup ( home ) button front panel. Scroll till you find Tools - Press ok, Look for Clean Printhead/Cartridges - Press OK.

Wait for the process to complete and this should solve the issue.

Regards,
Sean

Prints blacks fine, not printing grayscale.


Hi:

The answer to your question is very simple. If your document has a greyscale area, it is a color document and needs a color printer to print.

Greyscale is not light black printing, it is color in layers to give the visual impression of light black or grey.

Greyscale printing is only printable in a color printer, and does not use any black ink in its reproduction.

Sorry.

Print is fully black


often when the exposure lamp burns out, all your copies will come out black. The light reflects off the immage to the drum to create the copy to be printed to the paper. If the light is out, all the drum will see is a black image to be printed. Make a copy with the cover open, and see if the light turns on.

I replaced the black ink and the error light is on and the out of black ink light is still on. Won't print


Try it.......

Remove the print head and soak it for three 5-minute cycles in hot (~170 F) distilled water about 3/4 inch deep with continuous mild agitation. The first soak quickly turn the water black, the second end with the water a dark grey color. The hot distilled water dissolved the dried ink in the small ink passages from the cartridges to the ink ejection part of the print head.
Carefully dry the print head as per instructions, clean the electrical contacts on the printer, and placed the print head and the ink cartridges in the printer.Turn off the printer, then unplugged it for one minute.Then turn it on...and print an alignment sheet...

Canon i250, black text won't print, but ok with nozzle check


Canon i250. Instructions on this website solved the problem of flashing green and orange lights, but now the black won't print. Changed ink cartridges, but still no print. Did a diagnostic nozzle check, and the black DID print. What do I do now?

Printer will not print black ink


Seems to be a common fault with Kodak EasyShare 5100/5300

Contact Kodak Support and go though the following tests:

Remove and re-seat Printer Cartridge(s) - Done

Clean Printhead - Done

Calibrate Printer - Test Sheet Not Complete!

Run Computer Colour Test - Done

They will then send you a new Print Head.

The printed pages with black is light and spotty.


Hello,
Try to run the "Clean Print Heads" utility. Sometimes it is called something else, but whenever your print quality degrades, this is a good program to run. If that doesn't work, then I would suggest replacing the print cartridge. Sometimes they go bad if they have not been used for a long time. Hope this helps!

Copies print all black


Make 1 copy with the lid open & verify that the scan lamp is lighting & that the scanner moves. A blown lamp is the most common cause for all black copies.
