I was low on black ink and needed to print flyers , the Epson 630 asked me if i would like to continue printing and use other colors , i pushed yes, and have changed out ink and its still prints in r


Is it possible that you accidentally put the wrong colour cartidges in the wrong spots? Otherwise, it should work fine. Also, the printer's default is usually to print in colour, therefore even pages in black and white will usr colour, which uses up coloured ink. Always check the prooerties when printing to switch to b&w:)

I have installed new HP cartridges (black and colour)but on testing I get no colours except magenta violet and red!! Peter Fairclough


You must set to clean the print head. Yellow ink doesn't work. Try to clean the print head with some hot water, untill you'll see yellow ink came out. Time to time you must print some color files do not dry the ink.

How do i mix the colours on my stylus sx115 as i have run out of black but have the other 3 colours remaining?


Conserving Black Ink When the Cartridge Is Low (For Windows Only) The window below appears when black ink runs low and there is more color ink than black ink. It appears only when plain papers is selected as the paper type, and Text is selected as the Quality Option.

The window gives you the option to either continue using black ink normally or conserve black ink by using a mixture of color inks to create black. Click the Yes button to use a mixture of color inks to create black. You will see the same window the next time you print a similar job. Click the No button to continue using the remaining black ink for the job you are printing. You will see the same window the next time you print a similar job, and again have the option to conserve black ink. Click Disable this feature to continue using the remaining black ink.

Does not print the black colour; all the other colours are perfect, except the black. I replaced the cartridge ( a completely new one ) and still does not work.


Try to run Head Cleaning utility of your printer. This will force your printer to recharge so that it can dispense black ink that you placed recently.

If you are using Windows:

  1. Click Start button => Settings => Printers and Faxes
  2. Locate your printer icon. Right click on it and click "Printing Preferences".
  3. Look for the "Maintenance" Tab in the window that appears. There you will see commands for "Alignments" and "Head Cleaning" or some similar commands.
I suggest that you just perform this once since Head Cleaning consumes ink.

Epson sx200 printer, wont print black ink only


Many printers especially Photo ones also use colour even when printing Black. so you do need to replace the spent colour cartridge.

If you only need to print in black get a B&W printer not a colour one.

Won't print with just black ink cartridge


When you print, in the printing window, click properties, then click advanced. Most times you can select to print using black cartridge only. Unfortunately you will need to replace to get the printer working. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thank you,
Lee
