    will not print black ink but does print color ink just fine

  • newpage Nov 30, 2008

    I have the same problem; the blank ink cartridge message read low ink so replaced the cartridge, did not print. Thought it was defective, so bought a second one, but the same thing is happening. Color ink prints just fine. Any suggestions out there as to what this nuisance can be??? thanks so much!

The printer's lying to me


The printer requires both cartridges to have ink before the printer will initialize and operational. Even if you are only printing black and white both cartridge have to contain ink or the printer will error out. This is standard on all ink jet printers from every manufacturer. You will have to get ink before you can print.

Hi I am not getting any Red from my printer


It's possible magenta ink to be finished, or the print head is dirty and it has dry ink on it. You must clean it with hot water. You must use the printer from time to time to avoid to dry the ink cartridge or print head.

Empty colour cardridge, cant print black and white


Hi!

I'm afraid that most printers nowadays simply refuse to print unless you have ink in BOTH cartridges. No workaround. At least with an
Epson you have the possiblily of buying much less expensive generic refills...If you do this always try and find reviews of the brand of refills...caveat emptor! (buyer beware)

Sorry..

Printer is refusing to print colour, with full colour ink tank.


Have you checked the ink levels in your cartridges? Ink can dry due to usage and also due to prolonged non usage.

Won't print black


I found a solution to the Black printing problem :)
Under Printing Preferences: Set your Media Type to Photo Paper Pro.
We used edible ink cartridges and printed onto icing sugar paper. Same old... Just one day it refused to print black. In order to continue our small business, I degraded the color until I printed gray and not black.

Tonight, I browsed for the problem and came across this :)

Hope it helps you too
