Have you tried printing text in different colour if that works the black jets are blocked- try running the cleaning cycle to clear (it may not use black ink in graphics)

Printed page is just about entirely covered in black ink no matter what you print.


Replace your black cartridge, the waste hopper is overflowing onto the page.

Too much ink to few padges printed


The 1000-1500 mark is usually just a guess - it usually assumes no more than 15% coverage of the page.  If you are printing out very large pictures (full page images) or are printing lots of a single color (green landscape images), then the ink will run out a LOT sooner.

Stripes on Images only - Text OK


Perhaps the CMY color heads need alignment. If you have not already done so, run a head alignment from the driver maintenance section. It will print out a page containing several lines and text, and request you select the closest-aligned images. After this is done, do another image print to check for improvements.
Normally, the printer uses the black cartridge for text and the CMY inks for images (even for black on photo and specialty paper). So when you are printing normal text pages on plain paper, only the black ink is used. A good check for this would be to print a normal text page, but select photo paper in the driver to trick the printer into using the CMY inks to make a substitute black text page. If this looks ok, then you are having issues other than cartridge alignment.
