Black ink will not print


Have you tried setting the color to black cartridge only. You may be printing the black with a combination of colored inks. I occasionally have a similar problem. Sometimes I can get the black to work by taking a paper towel dampened with distilled water and holding it against the cartridge print head until I see black ink coming out. Replace the cartridge and try printing again. If this doesn't work try a new cartridge and run through your Printer Settings, making sure they are all set properly.

You need to take it a couple steps further after your test print. Sounds like your print heads need cleaning or your cartridge may need aligning.

It is not clear which print head you changed. some time the printer, if it has 2 different print head, for black and color, you may have to try changing the black print head.
But before doing all that , make sure that the ink cartridges are full.
print an alignment page and then try to make a standalone copy.

clean the ink cartridge with lint free cloth. Also check the preview of the text before printing.

You may also try to do a complete uninstall and then reinstall of the printer driver.

New black cartridge installed in MP780 Prints


This simply means that black ink is installed but not CHARGED properly. What you see in a color printing has actually no black color in it but a combination of the hues of blue and yellow and magenta; though it appears black or dark.

Now, use your printer's maintenance utility to do Head Cleaning. To do this, click Start => Settings => open your Printer and Faxes, then right click on your printer's name. Then click on Printing Preferences. Now in the window that opens, click the Maintenance tab and do Head Cleaning. (In some printers, maintenance is called Toolbox)

Black ink not printing or very light or split. Have installed new ink cartridges. Getting some color and headings or seals. But mostly Blank!


HI

Usually when you install new cartridges,the printer print an alignment sheet.
in case if the printer isn't printing the colors okay,
you can try cleaning the cartridges by going to the printer drivers,
goto the control panel--->printers and faxes--->rt click the printer icon and goto properties,under properties there should be an option for either maintenance or service this device button,when you click it ,it gives an option for aligning the cartridges,
you can also goto the printing preferences and it allows you to adjust the color
there is an option to clean ink cartridges

Phote prints out faded and in black and pink only


Hello,

There are a number of single issues that can cause your problem in this case. The most common are listed below:
1.) Color cartridge expended.
2.) Print Paper selection incorrect.

From your statement above. I would suggest it is both item 1 and 2. Since, we are doing this assistance via chat mail, I can't come to your aid and witness myself what the results are and what your settings are for the paper type.

When you end up with a red hue over all over the print area the cause it usually a bad print head and selecting the wrong paper type.

To answer you question then, Yes, replace your color cartridge. But, first, try this method below to clean your color cartridge bubble jets.

When you go to print a job, always go into print setup or printer properties and choose the paper type as closely as you can to match the paper you are using.

The print head manual cleaning is listed below, it is from Lexmark. Below that is a process to clean blurry and bad print results. Although this is not specifically the case in your problem. The process to achieve resolution will also correct any problem your machine may be having. Remember, I do believe you need a new color cartridge. You will know with certainty however when you clean the cartridge head. If you do not see, cyan, magenta and yellow lines upon cleaning, at all, ever, then those inks are depleted. Replace your ink cartridge and then do these steps below the head cleaning.

Also, when ever you change a black or color cartridge you will want to run a print head alignment test and adjustment. There is enough of a difference in cartridges that this is quite necessary.

Please do not hesitate to give me as much feedback as possible on any issues and results you discover. You can use the comment text area below to respond to these instructions and give me the results of your tests and procedures.

Regards, Worldvet

Lexmark X1100 printer will not print black


I came up with a work around for printing black.

I changed the black cartridge with the color cartridge.
Then when I have a letter to print, I change change (or write) the letter text to yellow, red or blue.
Then I can print out a letter.

By printing the text as yellow, red or blue the cartridge will try to print with only 1 color, but will print out black.

If you do not use one of these primary printing colors the out put will be unusable.

I can not of course print out pictures.

Have you tried cleaning the print heads or replacing the color cartridge? where as it it printing black fine it leads me to believe the problem lies in the color cartridge. my first recomendation would be to run the clean print head wizard in the printer settings and if that does not work then replace your color cartridge.
