My black ink wont work.


refill of cartridge several times is not that advisable. time comes that ur cartridge will be damaged. possibility of damaged:
1. the circuit itself in the cartridge might be broken
2. overload of ink.

recommendation:
1. replace a new one or secure other cartridge w/ same spec of ur current cartridge.

Black toner replaced; now all black printing comes out faded grey


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink or toner cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridges that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks or toner causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead or photo conductors.
If you are using factory new ink or toner cartridges, then please call the manufacturer’s Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Problem with ink coming out on paper


Replace the toner cartridge with a brand new one. There's no such thing as refilling toner cartridges. When it's empty, the drum unit is finished and it should be replaced, not refilled. Remember that the drum unit is sensitive to light, and will also be damaged if exposed to a great amount of light over a perid.

If a new cartridge does not solve your problem, remove the cartridge and check out the charge roller. It's located in the upper part of the "cartridge-room". It's a grey roller. lower the front cover the get easy access to it.

If it looks nice and clean, just leave it. If it is dirty and smutsy, you should remove it and try to clean it with hot water. If it is damaged in any way, it should be replaced.

Still problems ?

Check out the fixing unit. Remove the fixing unit and look at the the big rollers that put out the paper. If they look nice, put the fixing unit back in. If they are burned and dirty, replace the fixing unit.

Good Luck.

Poor and inconsistent quality from the black ink.


the problem seems to be un-even distribution of ink. try a different and new ink cartridge. Since you are refilling the cartridge, the ink inside of the cartridge is getting magnetized, there by, the ink stick to the drum of the cartridge and don't distribute the ink evenly. shake would clear it. you need to demagnetized the drum.

Refilled a black ink cartridge Lexmark 82


Your printer will probably only work with orignal Lexmark cartridges. Your printer now thinks you are out of ink, so it won't print any more.

Refilling cartridge


cucujo, you were not as lucky as lovetofish! Sooner or later the printer will win.
The money for printer manufactures is not in the printer, it's in the ink refills. With this in mind many printer Mfg's have added small chips to their ink cartridges. These chips track the amount of times the printer prints. The software knows you are adding ink to the cartridges. Many people find they can get around this by keeping their old cartridges & refilling. Some HP users keep as many old cartridges as three. Rotating ink cartridges. This seems to work for most printers. Suggest you try the same. Continue to fill you're ink cartridge but replace with a new cartridge. When it empties replace with another new. The next three will be re-filled ink cartridges. Always refill as soon as possible, never turn ink cartridges on their sides. Keep refilled cartridges in an airless zip-lock bag, in a cool & dark place when storing.

Prints grey not black


I solved this problem but probably not what the printer manufacturer would recommend! The reason you are just getting grey is that the black ink cartridge is either empty or dried out from non use and only the color cartridge is working. I had the same problem after being away for 5 months. I put the printer cartridge in a bowl of warm water to disolve the dried out ink on the print pad. I dried off the cartridge with a soft cloth and then it worked perfectly.
