In my pixma ip2772,when I print photo then black colors are printing properly but when I print any types of documents then my black color is not working.It's not showing dark.What can I do?

This printer has a separate cartridge for black and colour. When you print pictures, the printer uses all three colours mixed together to make black and does not use the black cartridge. Your black cartridge may be empty or the printhead may just be dried out. Try a head-clean from the maintenance menu and then print a nozzle test. If still no result then try replacing the black cartridge with a new one which has a new printhead as part of the cartridge.

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.

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.

    Black printer ink in HP Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

    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.
