Try cleaning it first.

Remove and install the black ink.

Make sure you have installed it correctly.

Your last option would be replace the black ink cartridge with a new one.

If cleaning doesn't help, you may need a shop, there's a firmware update that helps with black printhead cleaning, try a couple of deep cleans first, you can select just black deep cleaning.

SOURCE: Prints without any errors but no ink on the paper.

if you have new print head assembly and cartridges, and waited for flow, and the printer is MECHANICALLY sound (not dropped or G-force damaged), then all that is left is improper cartridge installation. You may not have the cartridges fully inserted/, or maybe they are not PROPERLY inserted. Look for a snap when in place (and no wiggle). I suspect this is your problem, because one symptom you mention, ink accumulation INSIDE the head/cartridge cradle, is VERY rare -unless the cartridge is inserted improperly. The cartridges/head assemblies have VERY good seals to prevent leakage. Unless the o-rings/seals are damaged, leakage outside the seal just does not happen at all, normally.

*New head/cartridge installs can take several hours -sometimes even a day in cold weather, for small iP90-like printers to saturate the heads -and print.

SOURCE: new cartridge won't print

  1. Make sure you removed the tape from the ink cartridge.
  2. Press the <Menu> button on the printers operation panel.

  3. Press the left [<] or right [>] arrow buttons to select [MAINTENANCE].

  4. Press the <Set> button.

  5. Press [<] or [>] to select the cleaning setting you want. Select [HEAD CLEANING] for normal print head cleaning. Select [HEAD REFRESHING] for deep print head cleaning.

    Note: [HEAD REFRESHING] uses more ink than [HEAD CLEANING], so perform [HEAD REFRESHING] only when necessary.

  6. Press <Set>.

  7. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern and perform at least two Head Refreshing if the pattern is not correct.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: refilled my black ink but my color ink is empty so it wont print

Apparently I just had the same problem and I managed to fix it! Click on the OK button on the printer to ignore the low ink level error, then you'll be able to print and scan.

The Lexmark Impact S305 printer requires all the cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing - even if you're printing using black ink only. To print true black, you actually use some of the color ink.
Note: Leaving the color cartridge empty or dry isn't good for the printer. It can lead to poor print quality if you want to print color in the future.

Printer not working!


Usually black is provided by the black cartridge only. You might be able to setup the printer through the control panel using black and white printing until the color cartridge is replaced. That might turn the color cartridge off allowing you to print.

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.

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking


you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.
