Hp is known for being a pain with ink.

We once had a business jet that would not print because our ink had expired lol...

The printer wont work because it know's that the old cart has no ink. And since it needs all three colors along with black to print it will not do it, Usually you can set the printer to print only black under properties or print settings.

Other then that you will need another cartridge. You can also try one more thing. If you need to print in a Pinch, down on the right hand part of your screen, Is the clock. Double click it and change the date back a year from today and see if that helps you print

Black ink fading seems like the jets is blocked.


It usually has to do with the print head of the cartridge not having any ink to feed it. This happens because cartridges are kept flat or upside down for weeks or months before being used and the ink settles away from the print head. The easiest remedy is to open the box and stand the cartridge upright for a few minutes before using. Then get a damp paper towel, fold it into quarters and sit the cartridge print head down onto it. Hold the cartridge down to the damp paper towel for three minutes. This will help pull the ink out of the print heads, priming them and getting them ready to print.
If the ink had solidified inside the cartridge place the clogged cartridge in about 1/4 - 1/2 inch of warm water for a few minutes. When ink starts to slowly leak out take the cartridge out of the water and dry it using a soft cloth to "Q-tip." Then place it back in your printer and run the print head cleaning utility that comes with your printer software. You may have to run this 2-4 times before printing quality is reestablished. If your print head is destroyed, as can happen, you will have to buy a cartridge and refill that cartridge before it is fully empty.

I changed the black ink cartridge and the printer


Calibrate your new blank ink cartridge, have some nozzle check, cleaning check, and printer alignment. This are procedure that new ink cartridge will have to calibrate before you use. Epson printer are very sensitive when capable of changing ink cartridge. Unlink HP directly work without any print test because the cartridge head and ink join together, Epson with ink cartridge and the head separate.
Have some test on it at Printer Maintenance.
I'm sure 100% works on it.
Good luck!

I might have an idea why this is happening....The print cartridges might need cleaning...
Follow the steps below to do this....


Step one: Remove the black, photo print cartridge, or the gray photo print cartridge

NOTE:
The black, photo print cartridge, or the gray photo print cartridge is in the right side of the carriage. -Lower the cover of the product.
-If the print cartridge status light flashes, proceed to Step two: Replace the print cartridge.
If the print cartridge status light is off, proceed to Step three: Manually clean the print cartridge.
Step two: Replace the black, photo print cartridge, or the gray photo print cartridge and remove the tri-color print cartridge
- Remove plastic tape from new ink carttridge CAUTION:
Do not touch the print cartridge ink nozzles or copper contacts. Touching these parts will result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections. Do not remove the copper electrical contacts.



NOTE:
The tri-color print cartridge is in the left side of the carriage.
-Lower the cover of the product. -If the print cartridge status light stops flashing, proceed to Step three: Manually clean the print cartridge.
If the print cartridge status light still flashes, replace the tri-color print cartridge. If the issue continues, service the product.


Step three: Manually clean the print cartridge
1. Gather the following items to clean the print cartridge and carriage:
o Clean distilled water. Use bottled or filtered water if distilled water is not available. Tap water can contain contaminants that damage the cartridge.
o Clean cotton swabs or any soft, lint-free material that will not stick to the cartridges (coffee filters work well).
o Sheets of paper or a paper towel to rest the cartridges on during cleaning.
2. Open the product cover, and wait until the carriage stops moving.
3. Remove the print cartridge, and place it on a piece of paper with the nozzle plate facing up.

NOTE:
Clean the contacts quickly so that the print cartridge is not outside of the product for more than 30 minutes. If the cartridge is outside of the product for too long, the ink can dry and clog the nozzles.
4. Unplug the product.
5. Dip a swab in the clean water, and then squeeze it to remove most of the moisture. The swab should be only slightly damp.
6. Clean the print cartridge contacts. Do not touch the nozzles.
7. Clean the contacts in the carriage, inside the product.8. Either let the print cartridge sit for ten minutes to allow the cleaned area to dry, or use a new swab to dry it.
9. Reinstall the print cartridge.
10. Plug the product back in.
11. Close the product cover.


Good Luck!
If there is anything more I can do for you please let me know if not and the problem is solved please rate it, Thanks, JCE

Epson printer: print head not moving to replacement position


Click on Epson, then Monitor status then Properties then replacement. A page will come up saying To get carriage into position click O.K. on this page. When you do that the carriage moves into position and you can take out the old cartridges and replace them

Epson sx 205, can't change the cartridge


With the power on and the lid up, click on the red stop (left panel). You will notice the cartridges move to the left and then they come back and stop halfway. Afterwards you should be able to slide the cartridges manually with your hand to the larger area on the right where you could do the cartridge change. Once you've moved it to that area just the lift the cover where the arrow is.

Printer is not printing and black cartridge has ink Black not printing, changed two cartridges but still no print. Contacted HP who will offer no help unless I use their extortionate phone support system....


Are there any error messages that display on the control panel of the printer or on your computer? That might narrow down the problem and the solution.

With what you have said so far, it could be a couple of things. The printer series you have tends to not print at all unless all of the print cartridges have ink in them. If even one of them is empty or near empty, printing seems to stop, even if you aren't going to print using the color that is empty. My first recommendation is for you to check all of the cartridges to make sure they all have ink in them. Replace any that might be empty.

This sort of issue can also be caused if the electrical contacts between an ink cartridge and the print carriage are dirty. Assuming all the cartridges have ink in them, you should check the electrical contacts on *both* the cartridges and the print carriage. HP.com has a web page that shows you how:

Cleaning Electrical Contacts

Go to Step Two in this document for the proper instructions.

If my suggestions don't solve the problem, please post back any other information that might help narrow this issue down. As I previously said, if an error message appears on the printer or computer, please post the exact text of the message. That will help a lot. Thanks.
