You need to do pin alignment every week, and if you seldom use the printer, its problem too. so have it clean first or realign the pin. go to maintenance menu.

Brown background instead of white


You are probably out of ink in one or more cartridges. You need to do a diagnostic print and take the print to the ink supply vendor to get the correct replacements.

Prints the colors but not blacks from the computer but does copies in black but missing pieces.


Unplug the machine and remove the black ink and take some contact cleaner and Q-tips to clean the contacts in the machine. re-install the ink and run the clean program and the alignment program.

My printer is not printing black ink, only in color. black ink cartridge is new. model #A940, service tag 5D53Z31, express service code, 11678555485. can you help?


Try this:
Go to Google Maps, select one and print it out. Does black work then? (On mine it does)
If you try to print an e-mail with both color and black fonts, are the black ones missing from the print? (On mine, the black letters are missing)
How about a scan which contains both color and black features? (Again, both black and color works for me)
And finally, if you scan an all-black font document after hitting "copy...black", you get nothing....but do the same thing after selecting "copy...color"...and it'll print the black.
I'm sorry I haven't found the answer as yet, but maybe if you try some of these little experiments I did this morning, then it'll catch someone's eye and we'll both have a solution (which may cost more than a new printer!

If the colors in your document don’t look right, you can change whether colors are managed by ColorSync or your printer.
To change color management options for printing:
Open the document you want to print.
Choose File > Print.
If the Print dialog contains only two pop-up menus and some buttons across the bottom, click the disclosure triangle beside the Printer pop-up menu.
Choose Color Matching from the print options pop-up menu.
Select one of the following options:
Select ColorSync if you want the application you’re using to control the color management of the printed output.
Select “In printer” if you want the printer you’re using to control the color management of the printed output.
If you select ColorSync and don’t believe the correct profile is selected for your printer, you may be able to change it. If you see a Profile pop-up menu, choose Other Profiles from the pop-up menu, and select a new one.
I hope this info will help to sort out your problem..Regards
