Your black ink printer head might be blocked by dried materials. Try to open your printers maintenance software and execute head cleaning procedures. Try to print a test page after every head cleaning or you may run print head diagnostics. If the black ink still doesn't print, try to use another black ink cartridge and compare with initial results.

LEXMARK X75 BLACK INK STOPPED PRINTING.


When was the last time you changed the black ink on the printer? If it's been a while then I would suggest you change it. If you recently have changed it then you can try pulling the cartridge out of the printer and giving it a small shake. Put the cartridge back in and run an alignment operation on the printer. You can do that through the printer utilities installed on your computer.

Canon MX850


funny thing, just had the same problem on a Canon mx850, one year old. the cause = a serious paper JAM. My solution, i freed all the paper around the two little black spongs under the inks cart. then, i turned the printer on, waited for it move the ink cart to the middle, after i unplugged the printer so that the ink stayed in the middle. this permits you to move it freely, and have the room to work on the purge system. 5c20 is the pruge system not working correctly! i actually had to take apart my printer, opened it in two to find that the little motor that moves the purge system just got unplugged, probably by the paper JAM!. simply replugged the little motor. before trying this, behind the two black hard sponges, under the white squeege that moves back and forth; is a little black wheel, with uneven teeth spaced on it. this only turns clock wise direction. must likely it's stuck, needs to do a complete turn to be realigned. clock wise only (try to move it if your not sure what side is clockwise, don't insist, it's not that hard to turn the right way!!) now, when you turn this wheel, the squeege moves back and forth and the sponges go up and down, alernating with the sponges. it should become easy again, and the problem should be alright!
it's to be noted that, i won'T open the printer like i did, if is just out of the box!! or still under warantee.
i live in the middle of no where, and i had nothing to lose in trying to fix it myself.
hope this helps, write for more questions

Check that your black ink cartridge has ink inside, eventually try a new cartridge , as ink may have dried up in old cartridge.
If you use a new cartridge ensure you removed cellotape from cartrige.
If cartridge is ok, then it is printer nozzle/head for black ink.
In this case do nozzle check / head cleaning in printer tools a couple of times.
If problem persist you may need to check and clean printer's head with cotton and solvent.

Printer won't work


Norma930,
Try cleaning the Print Head (a function you should find within your printers properties). Don't do it if you have already done so since replacing the cartridge as the process uses quite a bit of ink.
Good luck.

Canon i960 printer


I've had luck taking the print head out of the printer and setting it on a damp paper towel til the ink wicks out. The black ink probably dried a bit in the head. at least it worked for me.
Good luck
