This is just a suggestion. I recently bought a Staples refilled cartridge and had to return it because it did not work. When returning it the Staples Rep said that 50% of the cartridges do not work and get returned. This was an astounding amount I told the rep. Means nothing to him but to you, you may need to return the black cartridge if it is or is not a refill and try it out again. Let me know if that works.

SOURCE: when printing colour, black appears green

A worn out printhead can allow inks to contaminate each other, after cleaning you need to check your cartridges, if yellow is a brown color, you are getting contamination and need to replace the printhead. Black is hard to tell but when cyan gets too dark it's contaminated as well.

SOURCE: my cyan colour is finished,

Epson printer does not allow any printing until colour cartridge is replaced. However, you can fool the printer if you MUST print....
1. You do NOT have a refill or replacement for the colour cartridge
2. Press the button to service the colour cartridge
3. When it is lined up, open the colour cartridge door
4. Pull the cartridge up about half-way but then just drop it back in
5. Close the colour cartridge door & the cartridges move back to their resting location
6. Service LED for colour cartridge should now be off
7. Under print perferences, print black is checked and print colour is unchecked
8. Continue with printing of black only documents
Unlike other printers such as hpdeskjet which senses its cartridge ink levels, the Epson just uses service time from when the cartridge was last replaced. Since you did not actually replace the colour cartridge, the service time is now way off. When you have the refill or replacement cartridge, you will have to manually line up the cartridge carriage so that the colour cartridge door can be opened to allow refill or replacement. You would do this as follows
1. Press power button to turn on the printer
2. Half-way through start-up cycle, disconnect the AC plug
3. Cartridge carriage should now be moveable by hand
4. Manually line up the colour cartridge door and open it
5. Pull colour cartridge completely out to do refill or replacement
6. Put refilled or replacement cartridge back into the carriage
7. Close the colour cartridge door and reconnect the AC power
8. Open printer properties and use printer utility to do check & clean
9. Repeat until a good print head check is obtained....
Because of this action, you should no longer rely on the colour service light but rather just on the quality of print you are getting to determine refill or replacement of the colour cartridge.

Printer only prints in black/white. have put new

It could be the print setting on your computer.
If you're using Windows, with your document open, go to File > Properties/Preferences. In the Print Setup tab, make sure to select "Print using all available ink" in the Ink Use section.
On Mac you can select Color in Print Setting in any expanded print dialog.

Black ink prints perfect on the test document, but on any other document prints very light purple. Heads are clean?

Please try to print your document with the option 'grayscale' and see if the black is better. If it is ok with this setting, the light purple colour is caused by a software translation of colour. You need to change the colour settings in you printerdriver, or when you send a document to your printer, change the settings of your software application. (Word/Indesign/Photoshop or whatever you are using)

Samsung CLP-315 colour laser printer - is it true that you cannot print only with the black toner cartridge, if one or more of the colour cartridges is empty? I only need to print black!

Yes, it is true that most of Color printers will not allow you to print document if one or more of the recommended Cartridge of the printer is empty or removed from the printer. for printing only black, the better option will be to change your printer settings while printing a document. ex: when on a document ,and your press Ctrl+P for document printing, there is a option where you can select print color as black and the printer will print your document in Black only.

I'm out of blank ink. Can I print document with colored ink only? How?

If you want to print text & documents with a colour other than black then for MS Word and many other applications:
  1. Highlight the whole document by either pressing [Ctrl A] or use the mouse to highlight everything by right clicking 3 times rapidly or pressing the left mouse button down at the start of the document then scrolling to the end of the document while holding the button down and then releasing at the end of the document.
  2. Then go to the FORMAT tab and selecting FONT from the drop down list.
  3. Then select the colour you with to use from the FONT COLOUR box drop down list. Just be sure to choose a readable colour and not choose automatic or pure black.
  4. Once this is done you can print.
Note that images that use black will still print but will look strange without the pure black content but muckhof what appears to be black acually isn't and is a combination of the 3 / 5 or 6 other colours inthe printer so may print normally.

Mono color

These models use a "3 colour" printing process. In other words, these printers do not contain black ink when the BC-05 colour cartridge is installed. To produce black print, a 3 colour printer mixes an equal amount of the three primary colours. This process is known as "composite" black.

As the ink in the cartridge runs out, one of the three primary colours will run out first, depending on the material that has been printed. After one of the three colours has depleted, this colour will be missing from the mixture required to print black, and the print will change colour. This is the indication that the cartridge needs to be replaced. Usually the remaining colours in the cartridge will run out soon afterwards.

Rate the solution as appropriate !

I cannot print but i have only the black cartridge but i dont have the yellow cyan ang midget

Most modern printers use some colour when printing Black and therefore will not print if ANY ink cartridge is showing as empty.

Unless your printer has a setting for using Black ink only (this is not the same as printing a black and white document), then you will need to purchase and install the colour cartridges before printing can take place. The good thing about this is that very little colour ink is used when printing black and white documents - so they should last a long time.

Good luck.
