If the color M Y C are still good try setting the drive within the OS back to factory default and run a test page, or it might be a setting on the printer, but I would start with the print driver 1st

Just stopped printing one day. My HPOfficejet 6000 Model E609a just wouldn't print black. I bought a new black cartridge and still not printing. Ran a self test and didn't print tha


I have had the same thing happen with a Canon. I was talking to someone 1 day & they had heard of a case where an electronics wiz had the same problem. He went troubleshooting & found a counter connected to a switch very deep inside the printer. He shorted the switch out & the printer worked fine!! The only problem is I can't remember any specific details regarding the maker/retailer etc.

I have a Canon Pixma ip4300. I replaced the 5 PGBK (the large non-photo black) cartridge and I went to print. A piece of paper got jammed, so I pulled that out and since then, that brand new cartridge...


Hi I think you may find a very small bit of paper may jammed under the print head, try removing the cartridge and have a close inspection, it only takes a tiny piece to cause the problem cheers Terry

HP 3310 ink cartridge not recognised


My HP 3310 wil not print black. The color prints fine. Spent 2 hours on the phone with HP support only to be told to buy a new printer. The machine is less than 2 years old. There must be a way to repair this. Any ideas? Barbara

Black will not print


This may seem obvious but have you tried cleaning and refreshing the print heads? I've had a similar problem with only certain colors and the cleaning seemed to help.

HP PSC 1350v Check Print Cartridge Light


Check the date on your ink cartridge.  I bet it has expired. If you put in a "new"cartridge but it is even an HP one with an older date, it may not work.
I had my printer stop in the middle of a print job.  It was printing fine and suddenly would not print.  So I refilled the cartridge with an ink kit I had on hand and reinserted it--no go!  Then I opened a remanufactured cartridge (office depot) I had bought some time ago and inserted it.  No go, despite the fact I could see ink coming from the jets.  I finally gave up and bought a new HP ink cartridge, and it worked just fine.  But it bugged me why the new one would work and the other two that seemed just fine would not.

Later I learned that HP has a chip that reads the expiration date on the cartridges and that is what keeps those old ones from printing.  I found one trick of setting my date on my computer back to a year earlier than the exp date on the cartridge.  I saw the date on the remanufactured one I had tried earlier was 2005, so I set my computer date to today date but year 2004.  After forcing me to do print alignments several times and take the remanufactured cartridge out and put it back, I got it to print just fine.  And that 2005 cartridge that would not work earlier is what I am printing with right now.
Be advised, though, if you try the date setback, that HP printer will buck and try every way to not let you use that old cartridge.  You must say no to reflashing if HP tries to pull that on you.  And you will take out and put back that same cartridge multiple times and keep printing alignment sheets 3 or 4 times before you are successful.  But, if you persist, you can get it to work.

Black Won't Print On MFC 420 CN


Use another new genuine (original brother) BK cart. Do the cleaning twice only for BK. Wait some time (4 hours). If the ink has dryed up, the cleaning ink will break up the dryed one. Do the cleaning again. If it doesnt work, please write again.
