SOURCE: Specks on print out of Mono Laser Printer HL2040

If its spots this could have been from the cartridge or the fusser unit...
Do a half print test...send a print page to your printer listen to the printer print as soon as you think the printer has printed some little bit switch off the printer...take the cartridge and view the printed portion can you see the spots..if not.....than its your fusser unit thats marking the paper....remove the half printed paper slowly.....not to tear it......remover the fusser unit(hot unit)........at the back of the printer....towards the top....on the unit it self you will see a Teflon paper ....move the gear on the far end of the fusser unit itself and view if there is any spots....try cleaning this spots slowly as not to damage the Teflon or mark the Teflon.....

SOURCE: Unable to print BLACK

The machine should begin cleaning automatically, and the LCD will alternately show "CLEANING" and "PLEASE WAIT". When the machine completes its cleaning cycle, the LCD will display the date and time. Print the Print Quality Check Sheet and see if all colors are present:

    1. Press the Ink Management key.
    2. Use the up or down navigation key to select TEST PRINT.
    3. Press Set to confirm your choice.
    4. Use the up or down navigation key to select PRINT QUALITY.
    5. Press Set to confirm your choice. Press the Color(Colour) Start key to print the Test Sheet.
If one or more of the colors is still missing from the printed page, cleaning the print head may resolve this problem. When cleaning the print head, you are given the option to clean BLACK ONLY, three colors at a time (CYAN, YELLOW, and MAGENTA), or all four colors at once. For this issue we recommend cleaning only the affected color. If more than one color is missing then select ALL. Follow the steps listed below to clean the print head:

Cleaning the Print Head
  1. Press the Ink Management key.

  2. Use the up or down navigation key to select CLEANING.

  3. Press Set to confirm your choice.

  4. Use the up or down navigation key to select the color that is not printing
    -OR-
    Select ALL if more than one color is not printing.

  5. Press Set to confirm you choice.

  6. The machine should begin cleaning automatically, and the LCD will alternately show "CLEANING" and "PLEASE WAIT". When the machine completes its cleaning cycle, the LCD will display the date and time.

  7. Test by printing the "Print Quality Check Sheet":

    1. Press the Ink Management key.
    2. Use the up or down navigation key to select TEST PRINT.
    3. Press Set to confirm your choice.
    4. Use the up or down navigation key to select PRINT QUALITY.
    5. Press Set to confirm your choice. Press the Color(Colour) Start key to print the Test Sheet.
If one or more of the ink colors is still missing from the printed page, repeat the print head cleaning steps listed above up to 4 more times. After each cleaning, print the Print Quality Check Sheet to see if there is any improvement.

I hope it helps!!!

SOURCE: Canon i560s prints all colors except black

I had a similar problem and found out that you have to specify printing on plain paper. If you choose paper other than plain paper, it will make the black from other colors. Check also that all of your cartridges are seated properly. My magenta was not pushed all the way down so I got green instead of black ink when it mixed the colors to make black.

SOURCE: Trouble Printing

You go into your control panel and select properties, select reset ink counter and tell it you have a new color cartridge. It won't know you lied. When you choose gray scale printing it uses the colors to create black just to extend the life of your black cartridge.

Xerox 3250 printer


The transparency should have a white peel off strip! Without that the machine doesn't know it feed paper. Some transparency paper will have a backing sheet you peel off after printing. Check Staples for correct type.
This should be the edge that feeds first and should be on the on the non print side. if your not sure which side is printed on (face up / face down) open tray and draw an X on the top sheet.
then print anything and see if it prints over the X. If not then put peel off strip on the side (face up / face down) not printed on .

Staples required?


Have you been using it to staple or does it have the facility to staple paper?
If so, buy some staples. If not, and it still prints, keep printing.

How do I change to Black & White printing only on Epson ESC/Standard 2?


Go to your printer's options. It will probably take two steps but you can just select black and white (it may be called mono) and keep clicking OK until you're back to the normal screen. However what you really should do, if you can afford it, is get a Brother black and white (or mono) laser printer in the neighborhood of $100 - $140. I have one. It will print beautiful print for about 7 reams of paper per toner cartridge. DO NOT GET A "just like Brother cartridge" or a refilled cartridge. That's asking for trouble. Try to gget it from Newegg.com or Amazon.com. They are both reputable. Do not go to eBay!!!

If i have run out of cyan coloured toner, can i print only black somehow? the printer doesn't want to print at all (even on mono colour selection), and keeps asking to replace toner cartridge


There are few printers if any one toner ink is finished it does not print any more. So you must replace the toner or refill it then it will work.

Bad print head


HP C5010DN(Black) and C5011DN(color) are the part numbers. I am surprised staples does not carry them, but you should call around to local stores that sell printers. In Canada I use Future Shop or Best Buy.

My Xerox DocuPrint M750 printer will not print black text but will print colour


This is just a suggestion. I recently bought a Staples refilled cartridge and had to return it because it did not work. When returning it the Staples Rep said that 50% of the cartridges do not work and get returned. This was an astounding amount I told the rep. Means nothing to him but to you, you may need to return the black cartridge if it is or is not a refill and try it out again. Let me know if that works.

My printer will print all colors except black


Did you use generic ink?
Those 3rd party ink used to clogg the print head.

Make sure that the cart is placed well and secured.

(use nearly full carts for the following procedure!)
press menue then start mono (black copy button) then fourtimes arrow up button (tel.index). machine will be in maintenance mode and all buttons will flash. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start mono. machine will initialize the carts: refill the tubes and ph with fresh ink and do some cleaning. when maintenance appears again press 7 then 6 then 3 then start mono: machine will do a power purge. After taht leave maintenance mode by pressing 9 then 9. Do run a quality test print by pressing ink etc.

If you still casnt see BK the ph is clogged and needs replacement (no fixed avaiable!)
