Brother MFC-440CN - print quality terrible, almost non-existent in spite of many cleaning operations.

It sounds like the printhead needs to be replaced. Brother may cover the cost of repair if you call them at 877-276-8437 and tell them the prints are "missing black ink". Very common problem that a new printhead should fix.

My HPLJ3500 Color Printer wont print black even tho we just put in a new cartridge. Prints magenta, cyan, yellow, but no black. HELP!

Run the PQ troubleshooting diagnostic.
See if the black is printing.
If not, run the Disable Cartridge check. This will allow you print with only one cartridge in the printer. Take out all the cartridges. Put the black in another slot and put the cyan in the black slot(the top). Print the config page. If the black is printing, is the cyan printing. If black isn't printing the cartridge is bad. If black is printing and cyan isn't something is wrong with the printer. If they are both printing put them back in the correct locations along with the other two colors. It isn't the printer.

I bought a new ink cartridge, but cannot find my manual. How do you change the cartridge???

Changing an HP Ink Cartridge
  • 1

    Open the lid of the printer. Depending on the model, there will be two cartridges on the right, one for black and one for color.

  • 2

    Find the cartridge that is running low on ink. The black cartridge will be in black, the color cartridge will have a patch of color (usually green) on it.

  • 3

    Pull down on the black clamp that is holding the cartridge in place and slide out the used cartridge.

  • 4

    Open the package of the new ink cartridge. Remove the protective tape and slide the new cartridge into the printer.

  • 5

    Snap the black protective case back into place and close the lid.

    Printer wont print black.already replaced with new ink but still wont print black

    did you take the tape off the new cartridge and is the print head burned out for the black? if you installed the diagnostic's on it then run it and see what it says, otherwise expect the print head to be cooked, however it is possible to get a bad ink cartridge try tapping it on your finger and see if ink comes out if it does not then the ink cartridge is dried out or no good, about %15 of print cartridges are bad on just about any brand printer some more than others.

    Lexmark X1100 printer will not print black

    I came up with a work around for printing black.

    I changed the black cartridge with the color cartridge.
    Then when I have a letter to print, I change change (or write) the letter text to yellow, red or blue.
    Then I can print out a letter.

    By printing the text as yellow, red or blue the cartridge will try to print with only 1 color, but will print out black.

    If you do not use one of these primary printing colors the out put will be unusable.

    I can not of course print out pictures.
