The black tube or nozzles are clogged up. The printhead probably needs to be replaced.

possible reasons for this

generic ink
not using the printer for a long time
printing past the warning indicator of low ink and having air get sucked in the tubes.

Probably cheaper to buy a new unit.

My printer print with black i can't make it print colored documents


You should try the cleaning process several times. If that doesn't work then try changing the color cartrage?

Black ink isnt working. I have replaced the cartrage and cleaned the heads on several occasions but still no joy.


Try cleaning the contact pin inside the cartridge, there are contact pins that make electrical contact with the cartridge. Also clean the copper foil tracing on the cartridge itselt, if still not printing try a new cartridge, If this is a refill cartridge or off brand sometimes they do not work as most printes have low level software to detect original print cartridges.

It might be the cable ribbon to the black cartridge. If thats the case see if there are any rips in the line itself.
