I have replaced all my ink cartridges, colour printing fine, black won't print. Have replaced black cartridge again, incase the last one was faulty and it still isn't working. Yes i am using brother...


If one or more of the ink colors are missing from pages printed by your machine (i.e. received faxes, copies and/or documents printed from the PC etc), nozzles in the print head may be clogged, or the ink cartridge in question may not be installed correctly. Verifying that the ink cartridges are installed correctly and/or cleaning the print head may solve the problem.

Don't print the black color


Doing reference on your issue. Double check the ink cartridge to make sure that the cartridge is correctly installed. Also be sure that the black ink cartridge used is compatible with the machine.

The next thing to do is a cartridge cleaning as the belief is that the print head is blocked. If you have done a thurough cleaning, the next thing to do is replace the black ink cartridge to be certain the ink cartridge is not faulty.

I have included print head cleaning instructions in case you have not done this cleaning process.

here is some information from the Brother support site:

If one or more of the ink colors are missing from pages printed by your machine (i.e. received faxes, copies and/or documents printed from the PC etc), nozzles in the print head may be clogged, or the ink cartridge in question may not be installed correctly. Verifying that the ink cartridges are installed correctly and/or cleaning the print head may solve the problem.

Cleaning the print head may solve the problem. When cleaning the print head, you are given the option to clean BLACK ONLY, one of the three colors (CYAN, YELLOW, or MAGENTA), or all four colors at once. For this issue we recommend cleaning only the affected color. If more than one color is missing then choose ALL.

When the machine completes cleaning the print head, press Color Start. A Print Quality Check Sheet will print.

Hp color laserjet 2840 - prints one page in color, next in black & white. Yellow ink cartridge light blinking. Says "replace supply, using black only". Yellow wasn't showing as low previously.


Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

Print a printer self-test by holding the power button down with a pencil and opening and closing the top cover four times.
Check the nozzle self-test pattern in the self-test print out. If one or more of the solid rectangular areas are missing, an electrical contact problem may be present.
Remove and then reinsert the print cartridge(s) into the printer.
Print the document.
If the problem persists, follow the steps listed above for cleaning the print cartridges and print cartridge cradle.
Try printing again. If the problem continues, replace the print cartridges.

Hp psc 1210xi- the black ink cartridge appears to be out- i have a good color cartridge-how do I get the error off of my printer and print with my color cartridge?


  1. Take out the black cartridge once you've determined that you are completely out of black ink. You'll have to rely on the dark hues from the color cartridge to print in black.
  2. Adjust the printer software settings. Once you take out the black cartridge, your printer's software will typically warn you that you are missing a cartridge. Follow the instructions for your printer to allow the printer to print without the black cartridge. Then set the printer to print in black and white, not color. This overrides the black cartridge and allows the printer to access the dark hues of the color cartridge.
  3. Print a test page to ensure that your printer now prints black using the color cartridge.
  4. Print your documents. Bear in mind that your documents may not appear as black as normal. Still, they should be dark enough to pass for black, depending on how much color ink you have and the strength grade of the ink.

Brother mfc 3360 model mostly problem is no printout, pls soluti


Hi!

If one or more of the ink colors are missing from pages printed by your machine (i.e. received faxes, copies and/or documents printed from the PC etc), nozzles in the print head may be clogged, or the ink cartridge in question may not be installed correctly. Verifying that the ink cartridges are installed correctly and/or cleaning the print head may resolve this problem.

To verify the ink cartridges are installed correctly follow the steps listed below:

Open the ink cartridge cover and reinstall the ink cartridge. Open each lock release lever and push it until it clicks, and then close the ink cartridge cover.

The LCD may then display:
Did you change xxxxxx? Yes No.
The LCD may display this question for the color(s) that was replaced.
Select Yes or No by pressing arrow keys or 1/2 or "+/-" key.

After all the correct selections are made, the machine will then go into a cleaning.

The machine should begin cleaning automatically, and the LCD will alternately show "CLEANING" and "PLEASE WAIT". When the machine completes its cleaning cycle, the LCD will go back to standby mode automatically. Print the Print Quality Check Sheet and see if all colors are present:


Press the Ink or Ink Management key.
Use the up or down navigation key to select Test Print.
Press OK to confirm your choice.
Use the up or down navigation key to select Print Quality.
Press OK to confirm your choice. Press the Color key to print the Test Sheet.

If one or more of the colors is still missing from the printed page, cleaning the print head may resolve this problem. When cleaning the print head, you are given the option to clean BLACK ONLY, one of the three colors (CYAN, YELLOW, or MAGENTA), or all four colors at once. For this issue we recommend cleaning only the affected color. If more than one color is missing then select ALL.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

My printer wont print black colour on pics or word docs


Hi, sounds like a dodgy ink cartridge. I would purchase a new black cartridge and fit and try that. Refilling epson cartridges isn't a good idea, if you can't afford originals, but compats instead of refilling them. a good place to buy is www.choicestationery.com I've never had any problems with their carts.

Not printing after color cartridge ran out - new black cartridge installed.


Yes, this printer has fixed printheads and must have ink in each color to prevent damage to the printheads. Even when printing black only each color is spit in the servicing area to keep the printhead unclogged.
