If you are not getting other error messages, the chances are that you have clogged nozzles. If you are using aftermarket or refilled cartridges, they are most likely the culprit. To clear the problem, insert new OEM cartridges, run the nozzle cleaning utility, align the printheads by using the align utility and the problem should clear.
Let me know if this solves your problem. If it does not, we can test some other things. Thanks.

Try the following the intensive cleaning info in this rescue kit to regain print quality. There is also a known issue with some CX machines where a pipe gets blocked and the ink in the head can't flow. This is covered in this other rescue kit info.

SOURCE: after replacing the black ink nothing prints

Hello, I am having the same problem and have done extensive research to find out that with this exact problem you have mentioned, you must clean the printer head, nozzles, and waste ink tube. the process is a bit long and needs patience. You will have to take the print head assembly out of the sliding caddle and put it in a glass of rubbing alcohol to disolve the dryed ink within the printer head assembly. it is held in with a silver metal plate that runs across the assembly and screws to the sliding carriage. be carefull to remove the black clip on the right of the carriage to take it out. note to be careful to not pull the white info lines of the head. leave it in the glass overnight and also clean the tube that runs under the waste pad station and clean the clear waste tube as well. ....Good luck

SOURCE: Paper feed through printer but comes out blank

Hi

Yes if it been standing a long time it can dried out,

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this I put down here. But after you don this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok it got to be the heads blockage
There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Ink cartridges are all full, but when I print, it acts as if it's printing but nothing appears on the paper.


  1. Turn off the Stylus CX.

  2. Load letter-size paper in the sheet feeder.

  3. Press the cp_button_48_er.gif ink and cp_button_1.gif On buttons together and hold them down for about 3 seconds.

    The Stylus CX turns on and prints a test pattern, which includes a nozzle check. Shown below are some examples of what the nozzle check may look like.

Brother 665cw wont print has new ink acts like it is printing but nothing on paper


There is always a protective film on the print nozzles of the cartridge. Have you removed it? DO so now and print again. If you have and the prob still persists, then clean the contacts on the cartridge and the printer. Prob still persists, then go to printer settings and in trouble shootin option, clean the print nozzles. It will print an ink intensive page and the nozzles will be cleaned.

Have you removed the tear off tape from top of cartridges, it lets the air in and ink flows.

Will only print in blue ink


most likely you are out of ink other than blue, try to refill the other colors or get new cartridges.

I press print. It acts all busy and loud. Prints NOTHING


If paper is feeding through and you don't get any errors try this: Try doing 4 to 5 head cleans, wait about 10 hours for the ink to soften and do another 3 or 4 cleans with a nozzle check after each. You should see a gradual improvement in the nozzle checks. If there is no improvement then you need a head cleaning solution such as this one:

Others are available just try googling "inkjet head cleaning".
Hope this helps.
