Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
The ink box full message on an ink jet printer means that the waste ink absorber counter has reached the preset limit. When the printer does a cleaning cycle or recharges the nozzles when a new cartridge is installed, the excess ink is left on these sponges. Using the printer after this point may lead to ink spilling out of the printer. The ink absorbers are usually at the bottom of the printer and difficult to reach. (They can be cleaned if the printer is disassembled. However, this is messy and you have to make sure to reassemble the printer correctly. Then there may be a way to reset the counter.) Unless the printer is still under warranty, it is probably better to replace the unit.
The printer probably can't run the cleaning step to flush the ink from the new cartridge to the nozzles unless the waste ink counter is reset. That's why it doesn't register that there is a new black cartridge.
I wish that I had better news for you.
