Did you remove any type of protective material that may be on the cartridge before installation?

Black ink won't print even though the cartridge is


Hi,

It could be you just have a bad cartridge, If it's new, take it back and get a new one to make sure it's not the cartridge. If you get the new one and it still doesn't print black, then you have a bad print head. Meaning it would need to go to a service dealer to replace or repair the print head.

Thanks Mark

BOUGHT NEW CARTRIDGES (BLACK & COLOR) COST $70!! WILL NOT PRINT. SOUNDS LIKE PRINTING BUT BLANK PAGES COME OUT. . IS THERE A WAY TO CLEAN- UNCLOG PRINTHEADS MYSELF WITHOUT TAKING TO SERVICE MAN. CAN'T...


There are a few things you can do yourself to try and get the print heads flowing again, but they won't give you as good of results as a professional cleaning or new print head. I would say that the print head is most likely clogged if you let the machine sit for more than a few weeks without printing on it. If your last set of cartridges worked fine and then you immediately put in new cartridges and it didn't print, I would say the print heads may not be clogged but expired (no amount of cleaning will get them working again). To clean the print heads yourself first rub off any accumulated ink with a warm water soaked paper towel. As a check to see how your cleaning progress is going press the print head against a dry paper towel. You should see distinct entire lines for each color. You can then try resting the print head on a paper towel soaked in warm water to hydrate the print head. If no ink soaks into the towel at all after a few minutes the print head needs more cleaning than you can do yourself. Unless you know someone with a hand held garment steamer with a narrow nozzle on it you can steam the print head to loosen up the ink stuck in it.

Canon MP360 not printing


You probably need a new purge assembly, it draws some ink to both clean and prime the printhead. When it stops working you won't get any ink to the paper.

Epson photo 995 - black ink not printing


This is a common problem I have found with Epson printers. If you don’t use the printer on a regular basis the printer heads can clog. I have found no way to clean the heads once this occurs. I will now only purchase HP printers because the printer heads are part of the ink cartridges. With every cartridge change you get new heads, end of that problem!

Printer will not print black ink


Hi please try these steps:::

Right-click the printer icon, and then select 'Properties'.
2. Click the 'Maintenance' tab, and then click 'Deep Cleaning'.

3. Select 'All Colors', 'Black' or 'Color' for the print head to be cleaned.

allcolorsorblack.jpg



4. Read the message displayed, and then click 'OK'. The power lamp blinks and print head deep cleaning starts. (Do not perform any other operations until print head deep cleaning is complete. Print head deep cleaning takes about 1 minute.)

IF ABOVE STEPS DOESN'T WORK TRY THESE STEPS BELOW

Check ink tank vent hole The ink tank requires air to flow through it so ink can move from the reservoir to the print heads.

  1. Confirm there is no orange tape across the top of the ink tank

  2. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (1), it is properly removed.

    ink_tank_tape.jpg

    *BCI-3's shown in this example.

  3. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (2), remove the remaining tape to the level shown in Figure (1).

  4. Make sure each ink tank is snapped into the printer.

    IF THESE STEPS DIDNOT WORK THEN YOUR PRINTER NEEDS REPAIR(You might need to change the printer head.)

3e Black cartridge won't print


I'm not an expert but I go through a lot of ink.. I have found that even with new ink some of the tanks of ink aren't any good especially with compatible which i buy a lot of because it's a lot cheaper (ebay). With that ink I have gone through 10 cartridges in a row before finding one that worked correctly again (I mean out of 100+ cartridges hitting a run of 10 that where bad but the rest good.)

Also, a tech for epson once told me to hit deep clean 7 times in a row before a head check to clean their nozzles.. That has helped with my printer and at Fry's electronics, they have a cleaning solvent in kit, haven't tried it, but i have run alcohol through mine but I'm told that is very ******* the print head (dissolves the glue).

Hope that helped..

One of the inks doesn't work -epson rx 620


I am, and I'd say you've hit the nail on the head non OEM or non OEM ink in the past, has traveled it's way along the system to the print head filters and clogged them, virtually impossible to clean such microscopic filters and holes, and very tricky even to get apart. The fix really is to replace print head and reprime with gen ink, not cheap if not under warranty.

You can try magic wand stuff and spin the wheel and try your luck but I never sent you OK!

search print head cleaner, ie

or my favourite bandaid, Fill the purge station with windex, let sit parked up for a day, run 20 cleans with new gen ink, and pray!

My other favs include, go to shop and buy new and dont buya non gen. inks

Black ink


Leanne83 and jzig - I presume your problems are solved by now. If not, please respond with a new comment.

Are you confident the new cartridge is full and in-date? Can you confirm that the old cartridge was not removed until immediately before the new cartridge was installed. Did you remove the yellow tape from the new cartridge before you installed it? Was the black cartridge change properly completed such that an ink charging cycle occurred. Have you carried out any head cleaning cycles? If not, do it. Have you done a nozzle check print? If not, do it. Any sign of black ink? Yes, but not perfect? If so do a couple more head cleans and nozzle checks. If still not perfect, let it rest for 24 hours to disperse air bubbles. Then repeat.

If you have already done lots of head cleans with no result, and you're SURE you have a good ink cartridge properly installed, then you can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head by hand fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then try up to 3 head clean/nozzle checks again. If still nothing, post a new comment with full details of what you have done and the results.

Can't seem to print in black only.


Are ya sure it isn't only preventing scanning direct to printer output? Is it also disallowing scanning to file? Epson printers can´t operate if one of the cartridges is empty. There is no workaround for that. Epson printers actually use a LITTLE ink from ALL the color carts, even when you select "black only" in the driver. They do this to help keep the nozzles from clogging in the case of users who mostly print in black. Nobody [besides perhaps Epson] ever claimed Epson printers were the most efficient or environmentally-friendly ones in the world. for quite a while now Epson uses piezoelectric printheads, as opposed to the thermal heads used on most other printers. The enemy of piezo heads is air bubbles. They candamage the costly head, and that's why you cannot continue to use the printer if ANY individual cartridge runs out of ink. In fact, Epson designed its cartridges to signal "empty" when there's still around 15% (higher by some estimates) ink left! That's to make certain you can't run the cart completely dry and thereby introduce air into the head. If you don't believe that, carefully open up a spent cartridge over a sink, slice open the plastic film covering the various ink channels and rinse it out -- repeatedly push in the spring loaded outlet valve as well. There's so much ink left, it will take quite a while before the water begins to clear! It's incredibly wasteful and annoying, but it actually saves money in the long run, because it's even MORE wasteful to run tons of cleaning cycles just to purge the head once you've gotten air in the system. Aftermarket carts and ink can save lots of money, but they're a crap shoot. Fed up with OEM price gouging and scare tactics, I decided to try a clear-cartridge refill kit for my R200. The RX600 uses the same kit: http://www.inkjetcarts.us/servlet/Detail?no=8 Good Luck!
