Changed the black ink cartridge but can't print just black


Hi-

Sorry to say but NO you can't print if there are other inks which ae empty, thats one safety features of epson printers to prevent nozzle clogging. change the other ink carts as well for you to continue printing.

Epson Stylus Photo R200 - print with black ink only


Nope.....

Epson will not print unless all carts have ink in them to some degree. If the light is on for any reason, printing will be halted.

For future reference, once the color carts have been replaced, you can set the printing defaults to print in either gray scale or BW only. Keep in mind that Epson printers tend to mess up if you don't use the ink at least once a week.

Brother MFC-440CN won't print color


Did you use generic carts?

Do use only original brother ink carts!
Only these have special cleaning fluids mingled with the ink.

There are several advantages, too:


You can run a special cleaning mode (DO insert original carts at first!!!)

Press menue then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow-up.
machine should switch to maintenance mode (buttons will flash).
press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink within the tubes and the print head and run a special cleaning routine. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy to run a power cleaning. leave the maintenance mode by pressing 9 then 9.

The machine should print without proböems. If there is a poor quality left, the printhead is affected by bad ink and cant be fixed anymore.

Color prints too dark


1. Took out the color ink cart and clean the copper contacts of the ink cart with cotton swab, make sure that you do not touch the silver nozzle .
2. Try new ink color ink carts as someime this issue came up when the ink carts are about to finish up.
3. Replace the ink carts and do not us a refill ink.

Printer won't print in black


This could be to several reasons:
1#  The black cart contains blue ink-> Change to a brand new cart.

2# The cart assy has a bottom that is a foil. Sometimes this foil leaks.
Ink will mingle: You need a new cart assy.

Run the cleaning cycle twice after inserting a brand new bk ink cart and print out a test print. If you still see blue instead of bk the assy is leaking.
BTW the bk is darker than blue (or better cyan). You must see bk! So it seems to be the prob with the right ink....

First, wouldn't print black, now won't print magenta- all new cartridges!


Unplug machinepowercord. Open printer and take all carts out. Plug in power. Machine demands carts. Put new one in: Replace with original ink carts!. When asked push 1 (yes New cart). If you have used thirdparty carts, there could be a prob due to construticon or ink quality. In case there is no bk after 3x cleaning cycles anymore, the head is clogged: This happens because the filter in front of the nozzels is clogged by pigmented ink. DO USE ONLY DYE INK for all types of brother inkjet machines!!!
