I know it sounds stupid but do you have the old black cartridge, if you do put it back and see if it is printing even if the quality is poor and faded. If it is then possibly there is a contact bad, try swittching the black cartridge for one of the other colour ones, but put a colour in to the black space but don't put the black into one of the colour spaces. If the colour one is working in the black space then it's basically a dud cartridge and bring it back to where ever you got it from. Hope it works for you - Pat

Lexmark z615 only prints black and blue no other colour It is a new cartridge

The print head for the other colours may be blocked.
Try the clean print head maintenance a few times. You may need to replace the print head.

Brother MFC-290C not printing black


The nozzle may be blocked. So take out the colour cartridge and place its nozzle in a bit of water for about 10 mins. Bring it out and dab the nozzle with folded paper. If the tissue is blotted with the three colour it means you have unblocked the nozzle. Try now to print after returning the colour cartridge. You may need to repeat to get good results.

Thank you!!

Canon MP360 not printing

You probably need a new purge assembly, it draws some ink to both clean and prime the printhead. When it stops working you won't get any ink to the paper.

Printing colours

The color cartridge is faulty, you need to replace it.
If it is new ask a refund.
After putting a good cartridge do head cleaning.

Printing photos

its ok I solved it! I didn't realise that all the photo cartridge does is gloss over the colour picture produced by the colour cartridge. I simply had to replace the colour cartridge which had run out, so now its all working perfectly!!

Hp 3820 printer cannot print

there are a few steps to take.... try a few head print head cleanings ... then attempt to print a test page clean the catridge contacts as this fixes lots of problems ... just follow the instructions on the hp support site .... a big problem with underused inkjet type printers is the print heads dry out over time... you can rejuvinate a dry print head by removing it and setting it on a moistend papertowel overnight ... use distilled or spring water... you could also simply replace the colour cartridge

Won't print black

I found a solution to the Black printing problem :)
Under Printing Preferences: Set your Media Type to Photo Paper Pro.
We used edible ink cartridges and printed onto icing sugar paper. Same old... Just one day it refused to print black. In order to continue our small business, I degraded the color until I printed gray and not black.

Tonight, I browsed for the problem and came across this :)

Hope it helps you too
