    Thank you, but I have been using generics with this machine for two years without a problem. After having read other comments, it would seem that two years is the most I can expect out of an Epson printer.

With the EPSON'S you must "Genuine" Epson Cartridges. It does not print good with Generic.
I went thru 2 sets of cartridges, trying to clean the heads alot of times. Finally, had to buy another one.
If you are using generic, change back and see what happens and try again. If not , Good Luck.

I installed a new black ink cartridge and now it won't print black even though it shows its full on in levels


If your black cartridge was empty for any length of time before you replaced it, even if it was still installed in the printer, chances are that the black print head nozzle has dried ink in it. Cleaning may or may not resolve the problem, but cleaning also uses obscene amounts of ink. Epson printers are notorious for clogs since they have some of the smallest print head nozzle sizes (thus their high dpi resolution).
There are some Youtube videos that suggest ways to clean severely clogged Epson print heads. I cannot vouch for them as I have never tried them, but you can view them and decide for yourself.

Printer not printing black


First of all the print head is clogged just because you have tried to print repeatedly while some of the cartridges are empty. This results ink burn in the nozzle and clog. My recipe: Heat some drinking water in the kettle (70-80 C). Put the head in it and shake gently several times until ink is completely clean (10 minutes). Change the water do the same again. Change the water again (70-80 C) this time put a spoon full of apple vinegar (becomes a natural acidic solution very dilute) shake again, clean with cotton stick. I did it and started to love my mp800 again as much as I just bought it, all colours come back and started to print superior photos again......

I cannot unclog the printer head, even after cleaning particular head (black 3eBK) more than 10 times and deep cleaning another 10 times! Spend a whole cartrigde of black ink on this maneuver! Can anybody...


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Black ink does not print even when new cartridge inserted


The printhead is clogged. Some printers have the printheads as part of the ink cartridges. Others are separate. Try taking a swab with alcohol to the head area. If this does not work, try the print head cleaning several times. You may find it less expensive to replace the printer.

IP90 WONT PRINT BLACK


I had this problem recently with my IP90. Both the black and color heads were clogged. After running the "canned" routines several times to clean the heads and deep clean the heads...still didn't help...here's what I did:

1. open the top lid to have the cartridges that are inserted in the print head move to the middle of the printer.
2. remove both cartridges
3. What is left there is the print head holder. Slightly move it to the right and gently lift the print head lock.
4. Grasp the print head and lift it out of the tank.
5. Have several paper towels hand and know that you will have color and bw ink on your fingers
6. Put the print head on the paper towel
7. Pour rubbing alcohol on the blk and color heads and let them sit of about 10-15 minutes.
8. after that dry the heads and re-insert them in the printer
9. I put new cartridges in the printer and ran clean and deep clean a few times.
10. My color and black and white print came right back!

Hope this helps.

Wont print black but colors are fine,


Clean heads, clean heads, clean heads, etc. Then do the test print to see if the heads are open. I had similar problem with an Epson, had to clean the heads often, finally got to where the heads wouldn't clean so threw it away and bought another one (HP this time, the heads are included in the ink carts, haven't had to clean the heads at all.)
