The printer has not been used very much but the black ink is not transferring onto paper. The cartridge is full and I have tried a new and different cartridge. The colour cartridge works fine.

When you say not very much, it might be that the ink had begun to harden and dry out due to lack of usage. You may have to buy new ink, but maybe try running the cleaning utility through the printer utilities to see if it resolves the issue.

My printer will not print. I have cleaned it, and you can just barely see what I have printed. Does it need a ink roller?


This thing doesn't use ink. It uses thermal transfer onto the paper. Meaning it burns the letters onto the paper. You probably got bad paper cartridge or wrong brand. Try inserting a new cartridge.

You need to take it a couple steps further after your test print. Sounds like your print heads need cleaning or your cartridge may need aligning.

My canon ip1900 printer does not print even though it sounds like it


Your printer cartridges have likely dried up. You can try removing the print cartridges from the printer and pressing the print head (the bottom where ink comes out) into a moistened paper towel. This will hopefully rehydrate the dried ink in the print nozzle. Ink will likely transfer onto and through the paper towel, so please take precautions to not soil anything.

If this does not work you will likely need new printer cartridges. Refills can be used with decent success for the black but the machine will likely refuse a refilled color. Unfortunately this is how Canon has designed the machine. An original should be used in this instance.

No black ink printing


Try reinstalling the printer, as it sounds like a driver problem. This shouldn't happen, but occasionally the drivers get corrupted. And refilled cartridges certainly don't help, and may continue to give trouble even when replaced with OEM ones. Have you tried turning the printer completely off - disconnecting the power lead, for a few minutes? That sometimes clears things.

If you aren't currently, use the cartridge that the printer's manual says is for photos. Photo paper requires a different kind of ink.

Black ink stall damage


The ink cartridges sit inside this area made up of three (3) light grey plastic "walls". The middle "wall" has a spring on it that is held onto the wall by a little molded *** that is part of the plastic mold. This *** breaks and the color ink cartridge will not sit in there correctly.

You could use epoxy.
Drill small hole and cable tying the wire in place.
If the spring has ripped a hole in the printhead contacts, then you will not be able to fix it.

Copier won't print black


Have you tried a new black cartridge?
1st I would try to clean the bottom of the black cartridge with a paper towel and some windex. Spray the windex on the paper towel, and then wipe the bottom of the cartridge so it removes any dried ink.
Then you can press the bottom of the cartridge with the paper towel for about 5-10 seconds and see if you get any ink to flow onto the paper towel.
Install the ink cartridge and run the maintenance program that HP has with their software, or just use the menu on the printer, and run the cleaning maintenance and repeat if it still doesnt work.
Worst case, replace the cartridge.
Hope this helps.
good luck.

Balck ink not working


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.
