    When you say you just put a new cartidge in do you mean a factory new cartridge or a re-rfilled cartridge?



    Have you gone through the set-up steps and cleaned the new cartridge along with re-calibtrating the new cartridge?

Thanks for the feed back.

Okay, we are moving into either print head failure (service call) or media.

Please make sure that you have used the tools provided by the vendor of the printer to align the print heads.

Now, make absolutely certain you are using the correct paper. If you are not using paper made for an ink jet type printer you can get into real problems.

Ink jet paper is made to absorb the printer's ink into its fibers. Laser printer paper is made to hold a static electric charge until the toner is attracted to the paper. Then a laser printer's fuser uses heat and pressure to melt the toner and press it into place on top of the paper. Very different paper designs.

One other question for you. When you say the color is bad, are you saying the color is runny, blurred or the wrong color? For example a dark blue shows up as a purple. Can you define exactly what type of print failure you are looking at, please

My hp photosmart 5514 won't print. I put in new ink-black and color- and it goes through the motions, but the page is empty


I just had this exact problem on my HP 5514. Black won't print after running out of black ink. New cartridge no good.
I tried everything-no good. I suspected the pinholes in the printhead were clogged with dried ink because I didn't change cartridge in time.
The fix that worked perfectly was when I hacksaw top off old black cartridge & removed all foam wicks so now I had a funnel(can see clear thru). I installed the cartridge & filled it with alcohol, printed page & did head clean; then printed few more pages. Problem cleared almost immediately. I then soaked up extra alcohol inside cartridge with paper towel. Removed modified cartridge & installed good one. I guess this could be done for colors as well. I don't know if this is a proper procedure, but it sure worked well for me.

U051 error message. Won't print


Well, you must be using PG30, CL31 cartridge for your printer.

Did you refill your cartridge?
For error 051 means printer is not reading the cartridge. (cartridge is not readable)
When you put refilled cartridge, that's what it happens.
(after 3~4 times of color refill, color cartridge is no long to use, only applies in Canon
and there is no solution for it.)

Pls replace with new one.. and will work again.

Or if you need to refill again with other cartridge, pls....unplug your printer before you taking out the cartridge. In this way, you can re use your cartridge. Little trick... but no solution will work, once cartridge is not readable.

If you would like to save money, try refill kit by "ROADINK".
Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good.
For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video.
And will see how easy ink refill can be done.

Is there any way to get my printer to print only black copies without having to buy the new color print cartridge


Go to the printer settings - Preferences- color tab - and select Grayscale in the color selection.

Once this is done, try print a color text and see if it comes in a gray scale. This will work.

To give you a tip on this.... understand that this printer has a black ink cartridge and a tri-color cartridge. When we select grayscale, only black cartridge would be used.

Good Luck.

Black Cartridge Not Being Used While Printing


try printing in monochrome mode or gray-scale mode, and specify that it use only the black cartridge.

another problem could be that the head have gotten dry, remove the cartridge, get a soft cotton towel, wet it with a little bit of water, put the head of the cartridge (where the ink comes out from) on the cotton towel, you will see some ink come out of the cartridge, if yes, then put the cartridge back into the printer, and give it a try.

if not try to blow some air into the cartridge as if doing CPR ;) to the cartridge, this will help the ink get out of the cartridge.

if all this fails, get a new cartridge, as sometimes the head could have gotten damaged.

good luck

Non printing epson c20ux


Sounds like color cartridge ran out. Were u using color to print black?

Try new color cartridge.

Then if you don't need color go in and set to use black cartridge to print black (text).

If you need color on something only takes a minute to turn color back on.

Since printer worked you can go in and select black which uses the black cartridge and if it prints gives validity to a bad/empty color cartridge.

Good luck.
