Black Ink wont work.

I would take the ink cartridge out, grab some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip, and wipe the bottom of the cartridge where the ink gets dispersed. You should see color on the q-tip after just a few swipes. Return cartridge back into printer and give it a go!!

Please be sure to rate this solution.

Perform reconnection inspections on the printer. Attempt to printer documents. The computer should diagnose the condostion either as missing programs or malalligned printer ink or paper or compartments not closed appropiately.

Changed ink and now the printer wont print


The old ink has probably dried, plugging the jets. Try going through the cleaning cycle (several times if necessary). If it begins to print at all then let the printer set overnight and try cleaning again.

Hi, I have an epson stylus cx6600 , I replaced the black ink and the pages printed afterwards were full of lines, I cleaned the nozzles and cleaned the heads twice. I then took out the black ink cartridge...


Did you put a new cartrige the first time, or just put ink in the old one? Ink cartriges dry out. If you let them sit for extended periods of time, you don't save ink, you let them dry out. You can try to bag and wrap them if you are not going to use for awhile and see if they keep longer...but usually you just have to get a new one. I've heard you can put tape over the end of it to keep it longer...don't know from experience though. New carts will usually do the trick though.

Printer wont print black.already replaced with new ink but still wont print black


did you take the tape off the new cartridge and is the print head burned out for the black? if you installed the diagnostic's on it then run it and see what it says, otherwise expect the print head to be cooked, however it is possible to get a bad ink cartridge try tapping it on your finger and see if ink comes out if it does not then the ink cartridge is dried out or no good, about %15 of print cartridges are bad on just about any brand printer some more than others.

My printer will not print text.


Did you try and change the ink cartridge mode from color + black to color, or vice versa? Another thing you can try is to "prime" the ink cartidges by taking them out of the printer and gently pressing on the print nossels to get the ink flowing, then put the cartridges back in the printer.

Black Won't Print On MFC 420 CN


Use another new genuine (original brother) BK cart. Do the cleaning twice only for BK. Wait some time (4 hours). If the ink has dryed up, the cleaning ink will break up the dryed one. Do the cleaning again. If it doesnt work, please write again.
