My printer will not print with the black cartridge, it looks like it just dried up but I have changed it several times to be sure. It started after I was on vacation for a couple weeks. It was real light then quit altogether.

You need to run the head clean procedure as follows:

1 Start the AiO Home Center.
2 Click Maintenance.
3 Click Printhead Cleaning

You may have to do it more than once.

My Pixma mp830 will not print black text. What do I do?


Hy, your printhead has dry ink inside. Try to put the print head in ditiled water ( NOT tap water) and live it over night. If that dosent help try in warm distiled water and live it over night. Be careful not to put the print head in the printer when is wet...let it dry for 2-3 hours. If still dosent work you need to replace the printhead.

Power purge the machine:

Hold down the menu key. While still holding the menu key, unplug the machine and plug it back in. Do not let go of the key until the machine reboots and the screen says "maintenence". Hit the following keys: 7, 6, 4,black start. The machine will then go into "power purge" or deep clean mode for about 5-7 minutes. When complete hit: 99 to get out of maintanence and reboot. Be sure to have extra ink cartidges on hand as it does use up a lot of ink but this process works the best every time when the printer wont print

If this just started after you replaced the toner cartridge, one would have to say that it is a bad toner cartridge.
Print something that smudges. Pull down the front cover and look at the cartridges. Pay attention to the top one(black).
Look at the drum on that cartridge. You should see the toner sitting there. Compare it to the other cartridges which should be clean.

Mfc-620cn prints all colors but black. went through clean process several times. any suggestions?


It seems simple enough, but this is one of the most effective ways of fixing printer cartridge error. Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached.

To reattach the cartridge check the following steps :

turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head.

Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report.

Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

Kodak esp 3250 won't print black. Changed cartridge and still won't print black. Just installed new printer.


I fixed my ESP 3250 print problems by removing the cartridges and print head. Using a Q-tip and warm water, added drops of water to each of the print head ink wells until the water / ink from the wells bled thru onto a cleanex. Did this several times. Dryed the print head fairly well. Then added a drop of water to each cartridge for each color. Reasembled and ran an alignment and to my surprise, it works! I hadn't used my printer in a while, so the ink had dryed on the felt for both the print head and cartridges.......

Changed ink and now the printer wont print


The old ink has probably dried, plugging the jets. Try going through the cleaning cycle (several times if necessary). If it begins to print at all then let the printer set overnight and try cleaning again.

Every cartridge prints except black. I have replaced the cart twice and still no joy.It shows as full on my computer. It just won't print.


Unfortunately, it's most likely that residual ink has dried and clogged the black print head. Plan on doing LOTS of cleaning cycles for the Black cartridge only if possible. It will consume lots of ink, so be prepared. After several cleanings and tests (as many as 10) you should see a gradually improving appearance of black. If not, try looking into the ink level counter to make sure it has reset to full as it shouls when you insert a new cartridge. If it is not, you sjould be able to change it. If that does not work, it's likely time for a new printer.

Print quality reduced.


You probly have a cloged cartridge. Most of HP's cartridges are water based ink. Take the cartridge that is not printing good, color or b/w, set the copper colored end, which is the print head on a dry paper towel. You should be able to see all colors as a solid line, or the black will show 2 solid black lines. The one that is not correct, take a paper towel and get it damp, and set the print head on the damp towel, be sure to fold the towel or it will stain the table you set it on. and let it set for a few minutes. Try the dry towel again. You may have to do this several times..You also should have software to prime your cartridages. After cleaning, try to prime the cartridge.

Black is not printing. Have changed cartridge twice and cleaned heads several times


Most likely the printer head is clogged either you have had a bad cartridge that was dried out and dried all the black ink in the brothers.
the only way to clear this up is take it to a place that cleans the head manually, or try top get to the printer head and clean them yourself.
