Black ink from new cartridge is missing lines

I have replaced my black printer cartridge twice. It is still not printing and missing several lines - printing the top and near the bottom of the page only. What do I need to do?

Try doing nozzle cleaning, hope fully this flushes the air bubbles trapped in the cartridges. Or try using this template which sometimes flushes out the inks.

Black Cartrige Missing


Did you use a brandname ink cartridge - or is it a knock-off brand? If it is a brand name - then the cartridge is most likely defective. If it is a knock-off brand - some printers do not recognize the electronic in the cartridge and therefore don't see it as one being installed.

I replaced my black ink cartridge and the printer will not print. I tried shaking the new cartridge. I purchased an Office Depot cartridge #TO529


Ink is a lubricant for the print heads. Some color ink is used even if you only print in black or vice versa. If you printed with a color missing, you could destroy that print head from the friction of running without ink to lubricate it. That's why most printers won't allow you to print with a color missing even if you aren't using it.

If you allow a color to go empty, the residual ink in the head could clog and become permanently blocked. You would never be able to print that color again. So always replace ink cartridges as soon as they are empty.

Leaving your printer on takes very little power. Every so often the printer sends a signal to cycle the ink in the heads so it doesn't clog. If you turn your printer off, the next time you turn it on it will do a cleaning which wastes a lot of ink. The excess ink is soaked up by the waste pad beneath the printer. When the waste pad is full, the printer stops working. Unless you want to spend more than the cost of the printer or waste a lot of time on a messy cleanup you will end up throwing the printer out. So shutting it off actually shortens its life.

If you leave the printer off for extended periods of time, the ink in the heads will clog and you will have to throw the printer away. Someone I know with a Canon (though this can happen with any ink-jet) had to have the heads replaced twice within the first few months before the Canon tech told her to stop turning it off. Since then it has worked perfectly for over a year.

How to clear blocked print heads:
-leave the printer on for a day
-run several head cleanings and print the nozzle check pattern
-if that doesn't fix it, remove the cartridge(s) from the blocked head and drop alcohol where the ink enters the printer.
-reinsert the cartridges
-run one head cleaning
-wait about an hour then run some head cleanings.
-dip the print heads in Isopropyl Alcohol overnight, which you can buy from chemist

If after that still doesn't work, your heads may be clogged to the point where they need repair or replacement, which will probably cost more than a new printer.

If the print-heads are clogged, and your attempts to "unclog" have failed, it's time to responsibly recycle the printer, and buy a new Epson (hopefully, one that uses the same ink-cartridges that you have been using).

you have air in the air line tubes. you can try doing a couple cleaning, wait 24 hrs, and try a couple more cleanings and then do a test print.

you can try doing a ink purge, but it will **** up a lot of ink, but it might be your last resort.

press menu, and then *2864 quickly, then type 76, use the arrows to select black and then press 0.
when all done press 99 to exit.

It may work it may not, its possible you may even need to do it again, however, your inks will be depleted.

Every cartridge prints except black. I have replaced the cart twice and still no joy.It shows as full on my computer. It just won't print.


Unfortunately, it's most likely that residual ink has dried and clogged the black print head. Plan on doing LOTS of cleaning cycles for the Black cartridge only if possible. It will consume lots of ink, so be prepared. After several cleanings and tests (as many as 10) you should see a gradually improving appearance of black. If not, try looking into the ink level counter to make sure it has reset to full as it shouls when you insert a new cartridge. If it is not, you sjould be able to change it. If that does not work, it's likely time for a new printer.

Only black prints


It will only get worse. Do a google search and you will find out the print head is defective. After a multitude of complains, Brother has a more reliable print head for a fix. I'm not fixing mine. I've already invested too much in ink because of the auto cleaning it is programmed to perform.
A built in print head vs. a printer that has the ink tank and print head combined sounds like a good idea. The ink tanks are cheaper because they don't have the electronics built in and you only replace one color at a time. The problem is the print head clogs after several ink tanks have gone through them. Now, instead of paying $40 for a new ink cartridge with built in print head, you are paying for the ink that is wasted by all the required automatic cleanings, and eventually taking the printer to the repair shop for a new print head (parts and labor average $150) that may fail at any time.
My advice is to avoid any further headaches and buy a HP. Don't rely on good reviews, Consumer Reports rated this model a best buy.
