It will not print boldly ,it is very faint, yet I thought the ink cartridge was pretty new.It has been in storage for about 16 months though

The cartridges for these printers have a limited lifespan, the ink can dry up after a while which is the result of your feint printing. You can remove the cartridge and try cleaning the tip using a cotton bud (or q-tipp) with just a little warm water. Ensure it is dry before placing back in the printer. If you still have feint printing then alas you need a new cartridge.

We have just changed the black printer cartridge and are having trouble printing. It was very feint but now it is almost printing a light purple - the black is no where to be seen. Regards Fran

Ok are you sure that you have it set to Black & White, or Greyscale? Also ensure that you do a head clean, too. Give the cartridge a good shake up to mix up the ink. If it is purple, make sure that,that isn't the color of the "Font" that is printing... unlikely but just a thought.

It will not print in black ink even though I put a new black ink cartridge into the machine

Hello sir, good day, If you cannot print black ink on paper even with new cartridge on the machine, the cradle is dirty, the thing that holds your ink cartridge.

The ink flow is from the cartridge to the cradle then to paper, check the cradle, for proper cleaning.

I just replaced black ink cartridge and snapped all cartridges back in place and recharged the printer now it wont recognize the black ink cartridge even though it was just replaced

Try wiping the copper contacts on the new cartridge with a dustfree cloth dampened with some alcohol. Dry thoroughly before reinstalling.
