I guess you have used generic ink. This will clog the printhead built in fine filter.
Do use original brother carts and run the following procedure:
press menu then start b/w copy then four times arrow up.
machine will be in maintenance mode.
press 7 then 6 then 4 then start b/w copy. machine will refresh ink in tubes and ph and do some cleaning procedures.

When finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start b/w copy to do a power cleaning. Leave the maintennace mode by pressing 9 then 9. When machine comes up in a normal state of condition run a test print.

If there is no BK left the ph is defenetly clogged and needs replacement.

Epson printers have replaceable ink tanks but the firing nozzles are permanently built into the printer. The firing nozzle for the black ink is most likely blocked. Try the nozzle cleaning process via the supplied software, although this will waste a lot of ink and will not guarantee 100% success. If it is under warranty I would recommend returning it to the shop and buying a different make. These printers are not reliable and often require you to replace ink cartridges even though there is ink still in them, due to built-in chips which report the ink levels incorrectly.

Try cleaning the black printer heads several times in a row, at least 5 times then print a black document with best quality setting.

The black ink will not print on my Epson Stylus SX600FW printer. Th eprinter was left for a few weeks without black ink. Has the needle heads dried up and become clogged? How can I fix this problem?


I have an Epson sx600fw which has had a problem printing with black ink. I spent alot of money trying genuine and cheap inks as official advice is to replace with a genuine epson cartridge and clean up to 6 times before seeking further help. Tried this to no avail. By accident I found that if you set the paper type to glossy or photo then miraculously the black will work but in this setting it is slow. Epson replace the printer under warranty but I have just received a new one and it has exactly the same problem. I am slightly reluctant to buy another set of genuine inks to waste through 6 cleaning cycles as they are over £35 so am not sure what to do but I guess I will approach Epson again.

Printing/ink cartridge


hi
your printer is not detecting the cartridge, see the pins/connections where the cartridge gets contact, if these are conteminated, clean them. also make sure that you intalled the cartridge after removing its protection seal.

2 Missing ink black streaks


Check the dev unit for missing lines. Also clean the laser glass with the supplied cleaner pad - though if the problem were caused by toner on the lens, there would be gaps in ALL colours.

Check the dev units first. You can also do a stop test whilst a full colour test image is half way through printing and see if the lines are missing off the image on the PCU as well.

3e Black cartridge won't print


I'm not an expert but I go through a lot of ink.. I have found that even with new ink some of the tanks of ink aren't any good especially with compatible which i buy a lot of because it's a lot cheaper (ebay). With that ink I have gone through 10 cartridges in a row before finding one that worked correctly again (I mean out of 100+ cartridges hitting a run of 10 that where bad but the rest good.)

Also, a tech for epson once told me to hit deep clean 7 times in a row before a head check to clean their nozzles.. That has helped with my printer and at Fry's electronics, they have a cleaning solvent in kit, haven't tried it, but i have run alcohol through mine but I'm told that is very ******* the print head (dissolves the glue).

Hope that helped..

Change the black one. It could be that the cart is mal manufactured (valve wont open). Use another one and see if there is bk again. When no success after the 2. cleaning cycle try this: http://www.fixya.com/support/t202678-printer_head_cleaning If there is more trouble post here.
