If you remove the empty cartridge, you will see a small window on the egde that plugs into the printer, in the center. This is where the printer optically scans for ink levels. On the empty color cart, you can try covering that raised spline with electrical tape or by coloring it with a black permanent marker. That should fool the sensor into thinking your ink is full.

On your printer take a look on the "ink management button"press it then look for cleaning using the arrows up and down then press ok or set or what ever the command the printer will display just try to perform head cleaning.try for several times lets say 4x don't clean too much it might ruin all other color if it has no changes try to bring it to a service center,they can soak it to a chemical solution,the head is clog.

This can happen if the ink dries out for a long time. Try to power flush the color that doesn't work.
Press the Menu/Set, *, 2, 8, 6 and 4 keys within two seconds. (if you fail to complete the correct key sequence within two seconds, press the Stop key to try again).
press 7 then 6 then 4 then start black copy. This will fill the tubes with ink.
press 7 then 6 then 3 then start black copy. You may use the right arrow to choose the color you want to flush before you press the black copy button.
Press 99 to exit maintenance mode
Press the ink button and do a test print for print quality and see if the color you flushed works. If not, try again.
This is the only way to fix the dried print head. Otherwise you have to replace the print head, in which case, you might as well buy a new printer.

Mine wouldn't print black either on Plain Paper, but if I changed the settings to Transparency Paper type it would. Hope this helps
