No... sadly not... The printer protects itself from damage by now allowing nozzles to fire when they are empty of ink.

Many folks think that a particular colour is not being used when it's not obvious in the printout but as a general rule, almost all colours are being used at some point in any printout so the printer stops when a cartridge is empty.

It's a pain but a necessary evil I'm afraid...

INK PROBLEM
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Only prints other colors except black. Have change the toner but problem still exist.


Hi if you have put a new black ink in your machine and it still will not print black you will need to do a print head clean. you will find this on you pc in printer properties.
The problem is the ink can dry up and set in the print head so no new ink can get passed.
in the cleaning fails then you will need a new print head this is a part that you can if and if you go to Amazon and look for PIXMA iP3500 print head you will find it at about £45 ish

I just put in a new black ink cartridge and it will not print black ink. The color ink prints, but the black will not.


Hello nicfurtaw, there are dried ink on the ink carousel, or cradle, you may need to soften the ink. Use cotton buds, dip into warm water and gently wipe the ink hole where the ink pass through, until the carousel is clean.
  1. remove the black ink cartridge
  2. find the spot where the ink pass through
  3. see dried ink on it.
  4. use cotton buds dipped in warm water to soften the ink.
  5. do this several times
  6. clean enough, test to see if the black ink will pass through
  7. replace the black ink cartridge
  8. test the printer.

Hp psc 1210xi- the black ink cartridge appears to be out- i have a good color cartridge-how do I get the error off of my printer and print with my color cartridge?


  1. Take out the black cartridge once you've determined that you are completely out of black ink. You'll have to rely on the dark hues from the color cartridge to print in black.
  2. Adjust the printer software settings. Once you take out the black cartridge, your printer's software will typically warn you that you are missing a cartridge. Follow the instructions for your printer to allow the printer to print without the black cartridge. Then set the printer to print in black and white, not color. This overrides the black cartridge and allows the printer to access the dark hues of the color cartridge.
  3. Print a test page to ensure that your printer now prints black using the color cartridge.
  4. Print your documents. Bear in mind that your documents may not appear as black as normal. Still, they should be dark enough to pass for black, depending on how much color ink you have and the strength grade of the ink.

My black ink will not print. If I change the colour, it prints find. It is a new cartridge.


First you need to ensure that this is not a driver problem, by reinstalling drivers and testing the printer on a different computer.

Also ensure that ink cartridges are OK, try replacement inks.

If the problem is not a software problem, and the printer is recognised by computer, and the printout is coming as a blank or faded page, then you usually have a faulty or clogged printhead.

Try first performing print head cleaning procedure from printer tools, that may not fix the problem, but do the cleaning a couple of times, just in case.

If the print head is clogged, that can be fixed soaking the print head in isopropyl alcohol overnight.

If still no luck, then the printhead must be replaced, here is the part: Canon MULTI-PASS F-80 Print Head $61.00

Printer= Epson stylus Photo R200=will not print in black


The printer is designed so that you have to have ink in all the ink cartridges. They sell more ink this way. I have the same printer and investigated this a few years ago. there is no work around. Peter
