Try this:

The HP all-in-one product will print black copies using both the color and black cartridges to create composite black in Normal and Best modes. This is necessary to create the correct grayscale shades.

  1. The color cartridge may be out of one color of ink. Perform the steps in the 'Colors are not correct' section above to verify that the ink cartridges are not low on ink.
  2. Verify that the correct paper type is selected in the Paper Type setting.
  3. Some photo paper has different chemical characteristics than Hewlett-Packard paper. The HP all-in-one is designed for use with HP Premium and Premium Plus Photo Paper. The photo paper, paper-type setting should be used with HP Photo Paper. For other paper brands, it may be necessary to use the plain paper or premium Inkjet paper, paper-type settings.
OR: The ink cartage you have may be defective if is a refilled or recharged cartage.

My lexmark x3470 wont recognise compatible ink Cartridges any know of a way round this


If the ink cartridges you purchased are not Lexmark - that could be the problem. I used to have a Lexmark printer and I did the same thing - I purchased ink cartridges that were compatible but not Lexmark brand. Everything seemed fine until I tried to print and then I would get the same error sign and low ink message and it would not print. I kept thinking I was doing something else wrong and tried everything. In the end I broke down and got ink cartridges from Lexmark and that solved the problem. Now I have a Brother printer and I never buy anything other than Brother ink cartridges because I'm always afraid of that same thing happening again. I wish I knew which printers WOULD accept those non name brand ink cartridges, but thus far I do not know of any printers that do. Hope this helps you.

I have a Stylus CX 5000 with a new black ink cartrige and empty color cartriges. I only need black/white printed material. It won't print at all. What can I do to make it print just black and white...


Epson software does not permit printing when any of the cartridges are empty. It is a way to make sure you purchase more ink (It stinks, we all agree). They also use the color cartridges to make up black ink, then print the black over the top!! Again a way to make sure it uses more ink than it is supposed to.
Good thing is there are plenty of compatibles on the market that work very well and cost much less than Epson OEM's.
Sorry it is not the answer you are looking for.

I would recommend that if you are purchasing compatible cartridges for the first time that you purchase a complete set. This is because the compatibles may not function combined with the original cartridges you received with your printer.


Some cartridges also need you to transfer the chip from the original cartridge.

Original Vs Compatible Ink Cartridges - Which is Better?


If you will be printing large numbers of documents and other files then compatibles make good financial decision.
Compatibles are cheaper than originals. However you should check that you are getting good quality compatible ink cartridges.
As long as you are printing at least once a week then compatibles will serve you well without problem. To keep your printer in tiptop condition you should swap for an original cartridge once in a few months. This may seem like a foolish idea when you are saving money, but an original cartridge will help clean your print head and keep your machine working optimally.
If left for a long time ink can dry out in the cartridge and on the print head causing damage. Original ink usually has extra chemicals and agents to prevent this from happening. As you are likely to have to buy a new compatible cartridge if this happens any cost saving you achieved lost immediately.

pull the ink cartage back out to see if a clear film is not on the cartage??? Check the area by cleaning the ink cartage with rubbing alchole, and also the area that the ink cartage goes into. Use a cotton ball the clean these area with.

Dell A940 and A960 printers will not print in black ink, just purchased ink cartridges from Office Max, have deleted all info from computer of previous A940 and A960 printers, reinstalled program via disc....


I had the exact same problem with a replacement black cartridge directly from DELL. I called support, and they just had me clean the cartridge manually by swiping the print strip, then running the standard cleaning commands in the computer. I had to do that a couple times, but eventually the black ink started working again. VERY ODD. I hated dealing with it, but these steps worked to fix it eventually. Hope that helps.
