I installed a new black ink cartridge and now it won't print black even though it shows its full on in levels


If your black cartridge was empty for any length of time before you replaced it, even if it was still installed in the printer, chances are that the black print head nozzle has dried ink in it. Cleaning may or may not resolve the problem, but cleaning also uses obscene amounts of ink. Epson printers are notorious for clogs since they have some of the smallest print head nozzle sizes (thus their high dpi resolution).
There are some Youtube videos that suggest ways to clean severely clogged Epson print heads. I cannot vouch for them as I have never tried them, but you can view them and decide for yourself.

The black ink will not print on my Epson Stylus SX600FW printer. Th eprinter was left for a few weeks without black ink. Has the needle heads dried up and become clogged? How can I fix this problem?


I have an Epson sx600fw which has had a problem printing with black ink. I spent alot of money trying genuine and cheap inks as official advice is to replace with a genuine epson cartridge and clean up to 6 times before seeking further help. Tried this to no avail. By accident I found that if you set the paper type to glossy or photo then miraculously the black will work but in this setting it is slow. Epson replace the printer under warranty but I have just received a new one and it has exactly the same problem. I am slightly reluctant to buy another set of genuine inks to waste through 6 cleaning cycles as they are over £35 so am not sure what to do but I guess I will approach Epson again.

How to use only black cartridge on cx7450 epson !


Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. You need to consider 2 things, firstly the official line: Epson (and all other inkjet manufacturers) do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing. It is also why the "print in Black only" option (available on some printers) only works when the coloured inks are OK.
The 2nd unofficial line is that it is a win-win situation for manufacturers. Firstly they get to cut down on costly warranty call outs for blocked heads (replacement printers, technician manhours, etc) and secondly they get to sell lots more inks (Ka-ching!). If you really want to print black text only (and save cash on price per-print) then a mono-laser printer is the best way as they can now be bought at inkjet prices.

Black and white not printing correctly, color is fine


If you are not using Epson ink, your printer will do this. Epson printers hate knock-off ink. Always use Epson ink if you want to keep your printer working properly. To solve the problem you are having, try cleaning the ink tubes. Make sure you re-install them properly. Hope this helps. Charlene

HP PSC 2410xi color printing issues


Try using warn distilled water and Q-tips to gently clean the area where the ink cartridge and the carriage mate up. You may have dried old ink in there which is clogging the print nozzles. Allow to air dry, reinstall cartidges, start machine and let it go through its cleaning cycle. Also check www.hp.com. Hope this helps.

Black does not work after multiple head cleanings


It sounds like the black nozzle is clogged. I am not sure if that is a part that is end user serviceable. Best bet would be to call Epson and see if it is something you could repair or if they need to have you send the unit to them. Sorry.

Printer cartridge problem


I have a 440 and have had the same problem. Of course, I have been using cartridges from Printpal, Inkgrabber, etc. that are not official Epson. I have found that it takes several cleanings and after the cartridge has been in the position for the ink to go down it will start. My last order from Printpal said to set all the cartridges in the position they are in when installed in the printer for several days prior to installation. Of course, every cleaning of the print head uses up more of your ink. You don't have much choice though.
