It is quite likely your the print head is clogged from lack of use. You need to print a Print Quality Check Sheet.

Press Menu.

Press the up or down arrow key to choose Ink or Ink Management. Press OK.

Press the up or down arrow key to choose Test Print. Press OK.

Press the up or down arrow key to choose Print Quality. Press OK.

Press Color(Colour) Start. The machine will print the Print Quality Check Sheet.

Compare the Check Sheet to the examples here:

If there are problems say yes to proceed with cleaning the print head. You may need to complete several cycles. If the print quality does not improve after 5 cycles you may need to contact Brither Customer service.

Trust this is helpful.

Printer only won't print in black


My printer did that a few months ago. I tried everything to get it printing black but in the end I had to take the ink cartridge back and return a new one. Some ink cartridges dry out when they are being shipped if not stored in proper conditions.

Prints purple instead of black on photos only


My Canon printer has TWO slots for black ink cartridges. I assumed one was extra and didn't replace it when I ran out. Text printed just fine with only one installed, but my photos were printing with purple instead of black. I looked into it, and the two cartridges are different: one holds dye-based ink, the other has pigment based. Photos must require both kinds. If your printer is the same as mine, use both!

Wont print


what are you trying to print in black? the best way to test out a black ink is to open word pad and type some thing random and print it and see if that works. if you have a all in one printer u might have 2 inks one color and one black in the printer

Prints grey not black


I solved this problem but probably not what the printer manufacturer would recommend! The reason you are just getting grey is that the black ink cartridge is either empty or dried out from non use and only the color cartridge is working. I had the same problem after being away for 5 months. I put the printer cartridge in a bowl of warm water to disolve the dried out ink on the print pad. I dried off the cartridge with a soft cloth and then it worked perfectly.

Won't print or copy


If printer was idle for weeks, even if "relativly new", run cleaning in control panel/printers and faxs/maintanence.
If still inoperative contact manufactor, see about support or warrenty claim. Not to bash lexmark but, the cheaper of their printers work the best, the costly ones like the all-in-one I bought from them, was used for three months, I hated it and threw it out.(cost $300.00)

First, wouldn't print black, now won't print magenta- all new cartridges!


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!!!
