Is your printer in a very warm room or near a heater as they tend to dry up if too humid, the only suggestion I can make is to remove cartridges and give the contact/ink area a wipe over and reinstall cartridges. Once done you may have to run the clean ink heads utility a couple of times to get the ink flowing freely again. It worked for me and seems to be a common problem.

Have you checked if your cartridge protective tape is removed. There is this transparent tape in your ink cartridge contact area especially for HP printers, you need to remove it so you can print.

It would be helpful if you put in the actual unit with your question...

It is notprinting black ink. The ink cartridge is nearly full i have cleaned nozzles, no help.

try another catrige, check if anything stuck in nozzles, use proper catrige, the number of your originle catrige and current should be same,but for sure the problem with either with your catrige or the place where you fix you catrige.

Ink is not showing up when I print but the cartridges are full

Hello there!

Did you used that catriges before and refilled them now?
IF you done that, somethimes ends of catriges(their holes) can be stucked with jonized colour and they can close the path of your catridge ink to your paper. You need to do regular cleaning, take a bit of alcohol, make it be about 20% alcohol 80% water, put on a little peace of rubber, clean your catridge "lenses" and try again on your Printer.

If this is not working then concider that your catriges maybe are out of ink.

Printer MP160 service error 5010 after refill catridge

I had refilled the catrige, then when I start to print a 'service error' window will appear. At the LCD screed shows E.. 4 ..2. I believe the printer simply assume the catridge is depleted, but how can it happened as I already just refilled it.
How to make printer detected the catridge as a full? I really hope you can solve and make my refilling mission succesful and my printer work again.
