SOURCE: BROTHER MFC-210 PRINTING IN BLACK INK POOR QUALITY

Try cleaning the black printer heads several times in a row, at least 5 times then print a black document with best quality setting.
Press the ink button, then down to select select cleaning and then press menu/set and menu/set again to select black.

SOURCE: black ink will not print. Colours ok

Get a syringe, remove the needle, remove the ink cartridge and use the syringe to blow air GENTLY through the hole the cartridge connects to. Make sure you have a cleaning cloth to remove ink dislodged from pipe connected at the print head, do this gently to remove any obstruction and there should not be too much mess and can easily be cleaned up.

SOURCE: My printer Brother DCP 165C cannot print in black ink.

Your black printhead is blocked.
The printhead is deep inside the printer and has to be taken out by the expert and cleaned with the help of 'steam' and hot water. This is because not using the printer for a long time. or using low grade refill inks.
Please select new cartridge only if you are inserting a new cartridge or fully refilled cartridge. Otherwise use old cartridge option. Brother printer has a mechanical sensor and not the electronic chip in the ink cartridges.
After inserting the old used cartridge if you choose 'new cart' option it will show the "Full" ink. You can still print from the exhausted ink cart after covering the sensor in the middle by a piece of paper in emergency.

Can I use prodot black colour to my canon ink tank instead of esyink black colour


One can never recommend using non genuine printer ink as many are watered down and tend to splash around the printer . This can cause more problems in the long run. Pro dot is just a trade name. You can take the chance and you may be lucky. Its really a personal thing. I use Sainsbury's ink and have had no problems with it. It's up to you.

Why won't my printer print out the black


Usually this is just a case of the black ink being empty while the others are ok. Also a good idea to perform any nozzle cleaning and testing functions your printer has incase it's just blocked. Other poosibilities are that a new cartridge is not detected. Might even be software related. This kind of question needs a bit more information - what kind of printer? Which OS? How long since new ink/toner? How old is the printer?

My printer will not print black but is printing all other colours ok


Possible that the B/W cartridge is not contacting or is blocked. remove and fit back. Now remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts

I cant find the manual to canon pixma mp150.


Hi Irene
You solve the problem by replacing the empty ink cartridge.
Most printers (not just Canon) are designed to stop working if an ink cartridge is empty. This is to prevent the nozzles for the empty colour overheating and destroying themselves - the ink passing through acts as the coolant.

How can i let my printer to detect and accept the ink?


I have the same problem. According to another site I visited you will not be able to solve your problem by refilling the 28 cartridge (black ink). You will need to purchase a 28A ink cartridge which is refillable.

Printing photos


its ok I solved it! I didn't realise that all the photo cartridge does is gloss over the colour picture produced by the colour cartridge. I simply had to replace the colour cartridge which had run out, so now its all working perfectly!!
