No, Check whether any peice of paper or dust is accumulated on the paper feeder sensor. Rectify the same will resolve your problem.

No Cartridge


i am sure this is the same problem as the 440cn. each cartridge has an optical window on it where the sensor measures the ink level. what u do is put a folded piece of paper over this window and reinsert the cartridge. this makes the sensor think that cartridge is full and should reset the ink meter. the printer should work fine.

IP1000 cannot print black ink


This is what worked (so far) with my Dell1.gif AIO A940 printer1.gif that wouldn't print black ink.

It worked for awhile when I chose photo/glossy paper, but then it quit printing again (see below).

PRINT, PROPERTIES, PAPER SETUP, SPECIALTY PAPER, PHOTO/GLOSSY


I got it to print, again, by putting SEVERAL papers in the feeder (instead of just 1) - there is a sensor that is supposed to automatically detect paper type, and it might not be working right, especially with one or only a couple of sheets.
