this is usually a print head problem with these type of ink jets. try unplugging the printer, remove the ink cart and take an alcohol pad or qtip with alcohol and clean the cooper contacts where the ink cartridges go. If the printer is not used alot the ink dries up and clogs the print heads. Once cleaned, re-insert the cart. and power on and see what happens. No promises here as this is the nature of dealing with ink printers.
Assuming genuine ink cartThis worked for me on a HP printer
1.Try print black text ,and run many copies black only. I ran 25x12 times still no black. Run head clean after about each 50 sheets. Persevered and finally BLACK ink OK
Good Luck Inkypete
Hey....I solved the lexmark out of ink problem!!!HA!!! what you have to
do if you want to refill these is "pop" off the top of the cartridge.
It is not easy as it is glued down...using a small screwdriver
preferably a small flat jewelers screw driver you can peel back the
plastic that seperates the "lid" of the ink cartridge. you have to use
a little force but you can get it off. Once you do this the cartridge
will always read full!!!!!! just tape it or super glue it back on. You
never have to take it off again! although I recomend cleaning the ink
sponges inside every 3 refills. but this works great.....ha ha
lexmark.....I got ya!!!!
This could be to several reasons: 1# The black cart contains blue ink-> Change to a brand new cart.
2# The cart assy has a bottom that is a foil. Sometimes this foil leaks. Ink will mingle: You need a new cart assy.
Run the cleaning cycle twice after inserting a brand new bk ink cart and print out a test print. If you still see blue instead of bk the assy is leaking. BTW the bk is darker than blue (or better cyan). You must see bk! So it seems to be the prob with the right ink....
Unplug machinepowercord. Open printer and take all carts out. Plug in power. Machine demands carts. Put new one in: Replace with original ink carts!. When asked push 1 (yes New cart).
If you have used thirdparty carts, there could be a prob due to construticon or ink quality.
In case there is no bk after 3x cleaning cycles anymore, the head is clogged: This happens because the filter in front of the nozzels is clogged by pigmented ink.
DO USE ONLY DYE INK for all types of brother inkjet machines!!!
