Have you tried a new black cartridge?
1st I would try to clean the bottom of the black cartridge with a paper towel and some windex. Spray the windex on the paper towel, and then wipe the bottom of the cartridge so it removes any dried ink.
Then you can press the bottom of the cartridge with the paper towel for about 5-10 seconds and see if you get any ink to flow onto the paper towel.
Install the ink cartridge and run the maintenance program that HP has with their software, or just use the menu on the printer, and run the cleaning maintenance and repeat if it still doesnt work.
Worst case, replace the cartridge.
Hope this helps.
good luck.

The black ink on my Brother DCP-130C won't print and it's a brand new ink cartridge. I thought it was a defected cartridge so I bought another one, same thing. The other 3 colours print ok though....


I have the same problem. Everything on the printer is working just fine. It'll do a test page just fine, so everything's working right. The %$^ thing just won't print. It makes noise like it's printing when you give it a print job, but it spits out blank pages.

printer working ok-did 50 colour photos ,6x4 when i made a mistake and pushed the print button when there was still about 1 inch of the previous photo still being printed.This print emerged with overprint of about 1".Thereafter the printer has refused to operate properly the next print being heavily discoloured.It then told me to replace the light magenta cartridge-this I did and the discolouration changed hew.It then told me to change the magenta and light cyan carts.-I did and discolouration changed again.It then told me to change the yellow and cyan=siscolouration now bright
red over coloured. I then successfully printed a letter in B&W proving that the black cartridge was still working.However as soon as I tried again to print a coloured photo it now tells me that the machine does not recognise the black cartridge and orders me to change it and until I do refuses to take any instructions telling me to install the black cartridge cprrectly.The black cartridge installed isout half full and has successfully printed copies and photos.I have carried out the suggested remedies by the machine and none were effectuve.How do it the infernal machine working again???

Canon mp 730 prints colours BUT NO BLACK


Sounds like you need a printhead, QY6-0064-000 around $40.00. The only other thing that could do that is the purge assembly if it's not cleaning the black part of the printhead properly.

OfficeJet G85 Makes Unreadable Copies


Usually, it's the print cartridge. I recently installed a new black cartridge on a 6110 printer and it, too, was very faint in printing. It turned out to be "dried up", even though it was a new cartridge in a sealed bag (but purchased in 2005).

Copier Mode - will only copy in colour.


Electronic problem possibly. Contact manufacturer or simply replace it if bought new.

Why is it printing only black? I have a 12A Q2612A cartridge installed


This printer is a MONO laserjet printer meaning it can only print in black colour.

If you want a fax/copy/printer that does colour you would need something like a HP Colour Laserjet 2840.
