Question about Epson 1000 ICS All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

Black won't print.

My printer said both black and colour were out so I bought new ones (I always use original cartridges) and installed them. The colour is printing well and the black came out badly streaked and unclear. So I used both Nozzle Check and Cleaning options on the printer. Now the black won't print at all (Colour is fine though). Went to Epson's Tech Support page and went through all interactive help program and NOW I know that "it may be more cost-effective to purchase a new unit".

The two cartridges cost me $70, which is close to the price of a new printer. Now I have to go out and buy a new printer and it sure is not going to be an Epson!

Does the canon pixma ip1200 need both the black and the colour cartridges in to print ?


You need both cartridges. It is a paradox that you need both cartridges to even scan on the mfp,s

My printer doesn't print black. I did all the maintenance on it but it hasn't fixed it. I even bought a new print cartridge but that didn't fix it either.


You do need the color installed sadly.

This printer needs a colour cartridge to be installed to be able to print black therefore you do need all 4 cartridges to have ink in order for your printer to print.

I suffer from white streaks and light printing. A new samsung black cartridge was installed, same problem. Colour printing OK. Machine is only on it's second black cartridge.


Clean your printer head and nozzle with printer utility software. Hope it would solve your problem, if not, open the black cartridge and fit it again and try to print again. Though, not work, perhaps problem in you black cartridge, so purchase an original cartridge. Thanks.

Canon mp 730 prints colours BUT NO BLACK


Sounds like you need a printhead, QY6-0064-000 around $40.00. The only other thing that could do that is the purge assembly if it's not cleaning the black part of the printhead properly.

Possible to print only black when colour cartridges are empty?


This printer does not let you print if even one of the cartidges is out of ink. I suggest you replace them and then in the printer properties change your settings to the way you want color to be spent.

In view of the original poster's lack of interest, I think we can call this one "Solved by Poster".

HP 6110 All in one


Various models do different things so you will have to checkout some stuff. 1. black is green- what it mean is if you take some black ink and wet it to dilute it will sh0w dark green then lighter etc., because black is all colours mixed. In most printers when a 'black' document is printed actually all colours are printing - take a look under a magnifying glass. Some printers however allow for 'black' only printing. But you have to set it up. So check your manual and software or what comes up on the screen. Then come come back
