My Pinnacle Pro 901 is set to print using black ink only but it keeps telling me I need to replace color cartridges and won't print.


You won't be able to print if one of the cartridges is out of ink. The printer needs all cartridges with sufficient ink levels to prevent damaging the printhead.

Every time a cartridge is replaced, all colors are primed simultaneously thus the need for all cartridges to have ink.

Printer says cant print until cyan ink is replaced. Have replaced it with 2 different cartridges, but still wont print


You won't be able to print if one of the cartridges is out of ink. The printer will prime every once in a while thus the need for all cartridges to have sufficient ink levels to prevent damaging the printhead.

The printer won't print. It says replace the color ink cartridge. All I want to do is print black and white.


You can only use the black ink cartridge without the color ink. But no need to replace them in your printer.
When you print just choose black and white for the printed text must be black not colored. But if you still received such notification...just try to replace the color ink cartridge to continue printing
Note: As per my experience. printer with exclusive black ink alone will damage the printer easily due to unbalance printing of ink

I ran out of both black and color ink. I replaced the black ink b/c I do not print in color. But I cannot complete the alignment steps without the color ink.


Lexmark printers usually require both cartridges to have ink left in them to continue printing. But try to press the Cancel button for the Alignment process (this is not recommended). Then try to print a document again to verify that you are able to continue printing without an empty color ink.
If that doesn't help, I would suggest you replace your color cartridge with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge.

Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?
ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .


IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.

This is the only advice I can give you.


The next step would be to disassemble the Epson, and clean the Pads/Heads. Click on link below.:

Im trying to print a document but, its very light in color any solutions to make it darker..?


since you don't state the model of your printer, then take this some steps. first try to find if there is a tone function button in your printer, if you found try to increase adjust the tone, second, try to edit the text color to black, third, try to remove the ink cartridge and clean the contact surface of both ink cartridge and the printer, fourth, use genuine ink cartridge avoid refilling of ink cartridge.

Was working fine. Ran out of ink. bought new black and color cartridges (ordered from Zerox) Cannot get printer to print in color or black. I have cleaned print heads etc.but to no avail. Thanls


There are some soft pads in the bottom where the ink cartridges sit.
Try this. Unplug the printer. lay some paper towells under where the print cartridges are inserted and drip some alcohol down into that area. That will soften and unclog the print head. Do that a ferw times to losten up the ink and flush it out. Then allow the printer to sit for a while then run several test pages. Most of the time that will resolve the problem you are having, Those liquid inks dry and get very tacky and will not allow ink to flow properly.
