I work on these alot. You have either a clogged printhead or a bad ink cartridge. Take a cup of warm water and the printhead over to a trash can or sink and pour the water over the inside of the print head. Dry the printhead off and reinstll it into your printer. Run the Clean Printhead 2 times and check your printing. If this does not fix the issue then you more then likely need a new printhead.

Best of luck and have a happy and safe 4th of July weekend!

Please rate my solution on the service and quality of the solution.

My printer ink is full and it just printing in black and yellow


The ink leaves the ink-cartridge, and should flow through the ink-jets to be sprayed onto the paper.
If some of the ink-jets are clogged (blue, red) and some of the ink-jets are fine (black, yellow),
then you need to run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to try to unclog those ink-jets.

My printer isn't printing from the black ink cartridge -only color. I've replaced the black ink cartridge twice, so I know it isn't the cartridge.


Run a few "print-head-cleaning-cycles", to UNCLOG the ink-jets that should be spraying the black ink onto the paper.

Won't print in black


Start the HP Printing Assistant software on your PC, and select Utilities. Run a "print-head-cleaning" operation, to unclog the ink-jets that are not spraying the black ink onto the paper.

Also, use that software to show the ink-levels of the black ink.
Maybe, the ink-cartridge is empty?

Poor print quality, not fully black with white lines through text/images.


The white lines are caused by some CLOGGED ink-jets that are not spraying the ink onto the paper at the appropriate time.

Start the Epson printer-software, and run a "print-head-cleaning-cycle", to try to UNCLOG those ink-jets.

Printer will not print text. will only print picutres and graphics and text on graphics. just replaced the black and white cartridge.


It sounds like you are either out of black ink or you have a clogged black printhead. Perform a nozzle check/test page, then do 3-4 printhead cleanings. Run another nozzle check/test page and compare it to the first one. If you see improvement, keep cleaning your printheads until the black printhead is unclogged. If you do not see any improvement, you may need to replace the black ink cartridge. (I am assuming that your printer uses a tri-color and black ink cartridge) Replacing the ink cartridge will give you a new printhead (attached to the ink cartridge).

Replaced with New HP ink cartridge and it will not print out black


Hi There

Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Epson C82 & C84 Printers will not laydown any ink!


Sorry but It uses Durabrite ink which tends to turn into hard gel if not printed at least once a week. Its less painful and expensive to just throw the printer out and buy a new one. I recommend the canon PIXMA ip3500. It lets you remove the printhead for cleaning unlike the Epson. If you want to try your luck at unclogging the printer heres a link to a unclogging kit but be warned that results are not guaranteed!

http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/kits/Epson/K89

The C82 in addition to clogging also has a problem where the waste ink hose which is supposed to remove excess ink (so the printer dosent get clogged) gets disconnected and so the printer clogs even more. The C84 had this glitch fixed but alot of good that did!

Thanks for reading!

Look at this old post of mine here to see how to effectively clean the print head and unclog the nozzles. http://www.fixya.com/support/t137335-problem_print_outs_from_printer If you still have no joy, try getting a copy of a thing called "Countermeasure for loss of ink" from http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com it should help you further
