My best guess is improper ink cartridge installation.

Check your cartridges. Make sure you removed the protective film and clips that are used on some cartridges to prevent them from spilling or drying during shipping.

Make sure that they are seated tightly into the printer and are in the correct locations.

Make sure that all the printer's access doors are closed.

If that does not work you may have the wrong cartridges. Make sure they are identical to the ones you removed.

Finally, contact the printer manufacturer for support.

I hope this helps.

Epson cx3200 printer has printing problem


Hello cockie ,

You can diagnose most problems by checking the control panel LED's for ink out, paper-out or copier problem.
If a problem occurs while you're printing, you'll see an error message in the progress window on your computer.
It may also be helpful to try running a printer nozzle check.

See the following message problems and solutions:

Clean the printhead, then print and
  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.

IMPORTANT: Make sure you are using KODAK Ink Cartridges. Your KODAK All-in-One Printer is designed to work with KODAK Ink Cartridges. Kodak is not responsible for the compatibility or performance of either non-Kodak brand ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges. To purchase KODAK Ink Cartridges, go to KODAK Ink Cartridges & Photo Value Packs.
  1. Lift the printer access door, then remove the ink cartridges from the printhead.
  2. Insert new KODAK ink cartridges into the printhead, then press down firmly until you hear the cartridges click into position.

Changed out black ink screen says insert


It will be a hardware printing problem mostly. Try cleaning the parts with alcogol or/and elastic rubber. Also try to increase the force of contact with a sticky tape or like that.

Compatibles wont work


Try this:

The HP all-in-one product will print black copies using both the color and black cartridges to create composite black in Normal and Best modes. This is necessary to create the correct grayscale shades.
  1. The color cartridge may be out of one color of ink. Perform the steps in the 'Colors are not correct' section above to verify that the ink cartridges are not low on ink.
  2. Verify that the correct paper type is selected in the Paper Type setting.
  3. Some photo paper has different chemical characteristics than Hewlett-Packard paper. The HP all-in-one is designed for use with HP Premium and Premium Plus Photo Paper. The photo paper, paper-type setting should be used with HP Photo Paper. For other paper brands, it may be necessary to use the plain paper or premium Inkjet paper, paper-type settings.
OR: The ink cartage you have may be defective if is a refilled or recharged cartage.

Photo ink 58 do i put it on the right side and what other ink cartridge do i need to use


Normally, you keep the regular tri-color cartridge in the place it already was.. You should be taking the black cartridge OUT and putting the 58 Photo cartridge in...

FYI.. the 58 photo cartridge provides you with LIGHT magenta, LIGHT Cyan and a PHOTO Black -- which are supposed to give you truer tones and 'half-tones' for shades and nuances in color (like different grades of blue in the sky). The Photo black helps the photo not look "green" on black areas when there is a reflection on the photo... (with regular ink, when you get a reflection off of the shiny paper you often see a green-ish like color and it looks rather odd... the photo black stops that.)

Printer will not print black ink


Chewbacca08's solution gave me an idea. I set the print setting to photos paper (even though I was trying to print on plain paper) and IT WORKED. It's worth a shot before you trash a perfectly good printer.
