Question about HP Photosmart C3180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

3 issues, Will not print black but says still ink, now page shows amt gone and cannot find the ink when I open it.

First it showed Black ink still at one fourth full, but would not print black. If I could change to blue it would show. Then it stopped showing the page that tells you how much ink is left. I do not have the manual and I cannot figure out how to clean it, or even where the ink is? :-( Sorry , newbie , my X was the one who insisted on taking care of the computers and would not allow any of us to work on them.
thanks

EPSON SERIES L200 PRINTER DOES NOT PRINT BLACK COLOR


To everybody having issues with black not printing on the L200, I just got off the phone with Epson, and these steps solved it for me:

1.- Open the ink containers (lay flat and open carefully to avoid ink spillage).
2.- Run the Clean maintenance procedure from the Epson control panel
3.- Try printing a page with black features (still with the ink containers open)
3.- If it still won't print, try the Full Clean (it uses more ink, but in my case it was necessary)
4.- Try printing a page again (at this point it worked for me).
5.- Close the ink containers and put back on the side of the printer.

According to the Epson representative, this is the most common cause for printing issues with the L200 because the initial ink load creates a high vacuum and then the ink can't flow.

I can't print with the black ink. I performed a print head cleaning, and then I printed the nozzle check pattern. I noticed that the Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow shows up. However, the black checkered...


Simple problem that print head cleaning will typically not fix. The black ink is pigment based so it tends to form more stubborn clogs. Just remove the print head and if you have a steamer hit the black printhead nozzles with some pressured steam. If not available, soak the surface of the printhead in shallow hot water (try not to get the contact wet or be sure to dry them if you do). You can tell if the printhead nozzles are open by folding a section of wet paper towel like 5-10 layers and then soak it, press the printhead surface up and down lightly on the wet paper towel and if the nozzles are open you will see some ink pulse in the black port screen (the colors will also pulse from the pressure of the liquid under the printhead). It's easier than it sounds so give it a try. I've saved 100s of Canon printheads this way.

Note: if you have a really dried out head, you sometimes have to soak from the top inlet ports and the bottom nozzle surface to clear, but unlikely in you case since you had a black cartridge installed with ink in it (this keeps the top port from drying).

Brother MFC-640CW Replaced Black catridge becomes empty


Compatible carts do make a lot of trouble. One point is the draining! The ink has flown into the cart assy and beyond that to the bottom of the printer. As long as you can print without problems you dont have to do anything. If the test pages wont show the correct color you have to open the printer and to clean the assy and the bottom.

Do use original ink carts though these wont drain and give correct info to printer. You can very simple refill them with dye ink. Dye ink only!!!

Won't print in black


open your list of printers. r/click on the 780 and open properties. fo to the last tab "maintenance" and run cleaning 2 or 3 times then run deep cleaning 2 or 3 times. and see how this helps. If you've never done it before you might want to take out the print head and clean it with alcohol. Take out all the ink like you were changing them then reach in and gently pull out the container that holds the ink. This is the print head. Clean it and replace it, then run clean and deep clean again. run Nozzle check to see how clean it's become and you'll definetly see a difference in your printing. good luck
