    The ink was running low on my Epson Stylus C84 so i changed all 4 cartridges and straight away it is printing blank pages, i put the old cartridges back in and still blank. The printer goes throught the process of printing but still blank. I followed the instructions to clean the heads and still blank, even the test sheet to see if the heads needed cleaning, blank, obviously.....

    I just brought a new set of cartridges and replaced only the black. However, the printer will not print. It said something about cleaning the print head. How do I do it?

Yep, thats printers for you!!! It is one of a few things, but we will narrow them down. First, when you replaced it is it in best correct position and not sitting up, some people accidenatlly fail to push it properly home and this reslts in no printing. If it is ok, is the colour ink printing ok. Post back as this helps identify issues.

Replace the printer cartridge or clean cartridge head using clean mode .you may also need to replace the cradle to inkjet site on in some models(canon BIC for example)

Canon mg5200 only prints photos

I have an MP540 and it says..."The PIXMA MP540 runs on five ink cartridges, with a photo black as well as a pigmented black for text printing" so it sounds like pigmented is for text and dye for pics. So maybe your default settings are showing high quality, photo or the paper type is causing the printer to select high quality...just a thought!

The printer will print ok in color, but will not print black ink. No copy or printing.

My best guess without knowing more is that your printer has both a color print cartridge and a black ink print cartirdge. Replace the black ink cartridge and you should be fine. You might also find that replacing the entire printer is less expensive....All the best!

My hp deskjet 1280 will not print yellow

Hello, this is Harry from
We had the exact same problem when printing, we used 3 different 78 colour ink cartages and they all said 100% full but did not work. We then had a look at the dates on the box and they were all expired so when buying ink from anywhere even PC world or Curry’s always look at the expiry date.
Today I went to PC world and purchased a new 78 ink which said expires July 2011 and it works perfectly fine.

Black and white not printing correctly, color is fine

If you are not using Epson ink, your printer will do this. Epson printers hate knock-off ink. Always use Epson ink if you want to keep your printer working properly. To solve the problem you are having, try cleaning the ink tubes. Make sure you re-install them properly. Hope this helps. Charlene

Want to print with black ink cartridge only

It is a little known fact that ink cartridges do have an expiry date, and it is sometimes possible that even if a printer reads full, that it has dried out and will not print. When you recieve a warning that your ink is too low you will simply be unable to print black ink after a certain point. Generaly if you want to print in only black you will have to do that when you print a document. For instance in IE when you go to file and then print you can select prefrences and select print in greyscale or black. hope this helps!
