I just put in a new black ink cartridge and it will not print black ink. The color ink prints, but the black will not.


Hello nicfurtaw, there are dried ink on the ink carousel, or cradle, you may need to soften the ink. Use cotton buds, dip into warm water and gently wipe the ink hole where the ink pass through, until the carousel is clean.
  1. remove the black ink cartridge
  2. find the spot where the ink pass through
  3. see dried ink on it.
  4. use cotton buds dipped in warm water to soften the ink.
  5. do this several times
  6. clean enough, test to see if the black ink will pass through
  7. replace the black ink cartridge
  8. test the printer.

I want to change the setting to use black ink cartridge only, i dont have a spare colour right now, but need document printed


Most color printers will not allow you to print if a color cartridge is out. It doesn't matter if you want to print only black, as the paper still has to pass thru all the cartridges as the paper passes long on the transfer belt, or ETB.

COLOR IS NOT PRINTING VERY GOOD


There are many reasons for this problem.but some very common possibilities are as follows:--- 1) The color cartridge in the printer is near to empty.in this case replace the cartridge and check out. 2) The other reason is that color cartridge is not empty but the color in it is got dried up .In this case also the cartridge needs to be replaced. 3) Many times this problem occurs after the cartridge is refilled.or you are using re-cycled cartridges instead of original cartridges. BUT if you are using original Epson cartridge,the cartridge is not empty and the ink is is not dried up.Still you have this problem then,its the problem of the print head of the cartridge.In the printer where you insert the cartridge below that there is a print-head.In the print-head there are many tiny holes.From this holes the ink passes for printing on paper.But if this holes are blocked then ink will not pass even from the new cartridge.In this case the print head needs cleaning.From the PC in printer properties there is a option called"CLEAN THE PRINT CARTRIDGES" but this is automatic cleaning.But if the ink is jammed very hard then this automatic cleaning will not help.The print head will require manual cleaning.And for that the printer needs to be opened and print head needs to be removed.If the printer is under warranty then its advisable to get the print head cleaned by Epson service center but if its out of warranty then you get it done by local printer repair tech.But if the ink is stuck up very hard then the print head needs to be replaced. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Ink cartridge


Try pressing the new cartridge onto a damp paper towel. Look for all colors to make a streak on the towel, if any color or black is missing it won't pass alignment. It won't pass alignment or let you print until you get all the colors working.

Hp psc 1210xi- the black ink cartridge appears to be out- i have a good color cartridge-how do I get the error off of my printer and print with my color cartridge?


  1. Take out the black cartridge once you've determined that you are completely out of black ink. You'll have to rely on the dark hues from the color cartridge to print in black.
  2. Adjust the printer software settings. Once you take out the black cartridge, your printer's software will typically warn you that you are missing a cartridge. Follow the instructions for your printer to allow the printer to print without the black cartridge. Then set the printer to print in black and white, not color. This overrides the black cartridge and allows the printer to access the dark hues of the color cartridge.
  3. Print a test page to ensure that your printer now prints black using the color cartridge.
  4. Print your documents. Bear in mind that your documents may not appear as black as normal. Still, they should be dark enough to pass for black, depending on how much color ink you have and the strength grade of the ink.

Each time i do a alignment test it says print alignment failure


All the inks must be working to pass the alignment test. Even with new inks you need to do a cleaning before trying the alignment. If any color is missing, it won't pass

C6180 failed alignment test, will not print color properly


All colors need to be present to pass alignment. Usually what I see is the yellow is empty. You can blot the print cartridge on a damp paper towel to verify the inks are working and this also cleans the head.

Does not print all colors on some passes


If some colors are printing but other colors are not printing this usually indicates a problem with the printer color supply (ink, film or toner exhausted), a problem with the printer (stuck ink nozzle, dye film not advancing, toner drum clogged or jammed), or a problem with the printer drivers used on the computer. Refer to the documentation that came with your printer and printer software for assistance. and even then if u want our technician support contact us at http://tinyurl.com/mtgjzz

Epson C66 won't print without color cartidges


epson printers won't really print if one cartridge is not detected or detected as empty. the only option that i can suggest to you is that, buy a continous ink kit at any ink refilling station in your place. i highly recommend that dont leave a cartridge empty with ink cause it might clog your printhead. using a continous ink system's cartridge is auto reset, whenever the printer says that the cartridge is empty, it will automatically resets itself. ink refill kit comes with 100+ml of ink per color i think. and it is much cheaper using original epson ink.
