If your kodak printer esp 5xx is not printing black ink at all or faded do this..

Remove both black and colour cartridges (assuming they are new ones and don't need replacing)

At the back of the cartridge carrier there is a blue lever , lift it to release the carrier.

Using isopropyl alcohol and using some tissue clean the chip on the carrier, replace the carrier and cartridges ( reverse of removal )

Printer should then detect new printheads have been replaced and ask you to calibrate printer, problem should now be fixed.

For that problem kindly try doing the ff:

  • Re-seat the inks both color and black then try printing
  • Re-seat the Printhead of the printer then print again
  • Try changing the print quality to best then try printing
  • if problem still persist call 1800 421 6699 and the technical rep will replace the printhead

Hope this will help

Thanks

hi/....

this is because of the low ink in the catridge. normally the colour catridge contains three colour in it. yellow ,blue and i think one more is pink. so in your case the other colours might have finished. so because of that you are getting only yellow. so please replace the catridge with new one and the problem wil be solved

Replaced the ink. black works colored does not.


Normally, new catridge has a thin layer close the output of the ink. See that thing. If it close, pull it over, Or.
May be the catridge is not suitable with the printer.
May be the the catridge is quite old and the ink is dry, if it is refill catridge, put several drop of hot water in it.
Hope this may help.

Epson 1400 won't print blacks


Hi

Many problems regarding Ink with Epson relate to using cheap ink consumables. I recommend you buy original Epson black ink catridge. I know its more expensive but you should see the black ink clear.

Be sure to run head alignment and clean printer option first with the current black ink then replace with the new original Epson ink catridge

Thanks

Will not print black ink


Please check for the catridge..
I think either the catridge is empty on INK or catridge is having problem..
So, replacing with a new catridge will solve your problem..
