Question about Brother DCP-340CW All-In-One InkJet Printer
The black ink has just stopped printing. I have cleaned it about 50 times but still no sign of the black ink. I have installed a new cartridge so the ink is full!!
This is what worked (so far) with my Dell AIO A940 printer that wouldn't print black ink.
It worked for awhile when I chose photo/glossy paper, but then it quit printing again (see below).
PRINT, PROPERTIES, PAPER SETUP, SPECIALTY PAPER, PHOTO/GLOSSY
I got it to print, again, by putting SEVERAL papers in the feeder (instead of just 1) - there is a sensor that is supposed to automatically detect paper type, and it might not be working right, especially with one or only a couple of sheets.

How old is the cartrige? Did you just purchase it or have you had it for a while? If you've had it for a while it could have dried up. Cartriges have a shelf life and might not work after a while. (Even after three or four months of sitting). If you just purchased it, you probably got a lemon. You could try wiping the cartrige head with a Qtip and alcohol to see if you get anything. Hold the Qtip on the head for a while to wet it down well. Let it dry and try printing again. If this doesn't work, you'll probably just have to get a new cartrige. Hope this helps...

You'll have to contact Epson directly. Same thing happened to me. They offered a discount on another printer or would repair for free. This happened early 2007. Something internal went bad.
