I filled my hp 61 cartridges myself.I am having problems getting the ink to flow right,with the black cartridge


When filling cartridges yourself (i.e. DIY kits) you need to ensure that a proper vacuum prime occurs...often this is tricky if the internal foam is not properly 'wetted'. I suggest you take your HP61 ink cartridges to either Costco (most locations) or any Fry's Electronic Stores for ink refilling (typically ~40-70% cost savings vs. new cartridge cost)...the refill operators use a commercial grade ink refilling machine that preps, evacuates, cleans and then fills the cartridge automatically....followed by an electrical nozzle/jetting test. Anything goes wrong (at home) and you'll likely get a refund.

To find the nearest refill Costco store location and/or Costco pricing information, you can find this information at http://www.costcoinkjetrefill.com

For additional ink refill support information or advanced HP printer diagnosis/testing procedures for your printer model, please visit Inkjet411:

I have a Kodak printer ESP5250. I have replaced the black ink cartridge, done a printer head alignment, and cleaned the printer heads. When I print a black and white printout I only get the outline, the...


Did you replaced the cartridge because of this issue or because it was depleted?

Since Kodak cartridges have the Print head attached to each cartridge it may be that the cartridge it malfunctioning.

To Test use a lightly damped paper towel and put the cartridge or print head where the ink comes out in top of the paper towel if ink start flowinf to the paper towel then the cartridge is fine, otherwise try to exchange that cartridge for a new one.

Cartridge problem


Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Alignment failed refer to device documentation hp L7780


You need to remove the black/yellow printhead and dab it on a damp paper towel until you see a solid line of black ink on the towel when you press it. It won't pass the alignment until all colors work properly.

No black ink


Check ink levels. Control panel > printers > right click on printer and choose properties. Look for a tab that says something like color management or maybe just color. Should be an indicator of how low the ink is. If you are lucky to have one of the more translucent ink well cartridges, you might be able to remove and hold cartridge to a light to see how much is in there. If very low or empty, you'll need to replace it.

If ink is in there, reinsert the cartridge and peform a nozzle test or head cleaning. Also do a head alignment. All of these things should be options in the printer properties.

Still no black? Maybe a problem with print head and will require servicing or replacing.

Can't find where the ink cartridges are on the cannon mp830 to replace


THE INK CARTRIDGES :
This multifunction printer is compatible with all of the following ink cartridges. Here is a list of these cartridges and how they you can get them:

PGI-5 Pigment Black
CLI-8Bk Black
CLI-8C Cyan
CLI-8M Magenta
CLI-8Y Yellow

All of the ink cartridges are easy to install and/or replace; all you have to do is keep the printer ON, then open the cover it will come in the position and then unlock the cartridge which allows you to remove and replace the cartridge.

These cartridges cost any where between $10 and $15 each. But if you want a good deal, I would suggest purchasing your ink supplies from Costco Wholesale as they provide good prices on packages.
