SOURCE: black wont print

sure. if you re lucky the generic ink hasn t destroyed the ph bk channel yet:

use skyhorse carts (http://www.skyhorse.net.cn ) who built good and reliable carts with a very good ink quality!

To get bk again:

press menu tehn start bk copy then fourtimes arrow up. machines will
be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will initialize the carts, refresh all tubes and ph channels with fesh ink and eliminates the air bubbles (quite a big prob within brother inkjet printers). When finished press 7 -6 -3 to
run a power purge. leave the maintenance mode by pressing 9 then 9. do run a test print.

If you cant see ANY bk the ph is clogged and cant be fixed any more. it needs replacing then.

My lexmark X1270 Printer is only printing in colour ......wont print in black


It could be that your black cartridge needs cleaning or is not properly seated in the carrier. Open the printer cover and reseat the black cartridge. Close the printer cover. Open Lexmark Solution Center on your computer. Go to Maintenance tab and select Clean to fix horizontal lines. Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the nozzles and clean them.

Remove ink cartridges,then print head.
Clean print head with dry cue tips.

jets on print head.

Black ink wont print


Clean the head off where the black is with rubbing alcohol and a qtip. If it won't detect the black cartridge and you went into the printer settings and enabled the black to print as well as the color, then the printer sensor that senses new cartridges and amount of ink level is defective and, unless it is under warranty, it's not worth fixing.

Refilled my black ink but my color ink is empty so it wont print


Apparently I just had the same problem and I managed to fix it! Click on the OK button on the printer to ignore the low ink level error, then you'll be able to print and scan.

Printer wont print black.already replaced with new ink but still wont print black


did you take the tape off the new cartridge and is the print head burned out for the black? if you installed the diagnostic's on it then run it and see what it says, otherwise expect the print head to be cooked, however it is possible to get a bad ink cartridge try tapping it on your finger and see if ink comes out if it does not then the ink cartridge is dried out or no good, about %15 of print cartridges are bad on just about any brand printer some more than others.

My printer wont write, it only prints out the images and colour


Here's the fix for the black not printing...Take the black ink cartridge out and punch a hole in the round dark circle at top right of cartridge with an ice pick or something sharp. Blow in the hole and make sure you have something under it just in case the ink starts dropping. Clean the bottom and put it back in and it should work.
