The ink in the rest of the print mechanism is most likely dried up.

New ink catriges, ink is not flowing


This issue can be caused by several different reasons.

  • First, verify the tab protecting the ink from dispersing is not still on the cartridge.
  • Verify the the ink cartridges have been inserted properly.
  • If a lever has been changed from its original position allowing the ink cartridges to be added or removed, ensure it is back into its original position.
  • Perform a head cleaning on printer if available.
  • Verify no software errors are occurring abd print a test page.
  • If you are installing non manufacturer authorized ink, attempt to use the manufacturer's ink instead.
  • If any indication lights are flashing or are different, refer to your printer documentation or printer manufacturer's web page for additional information on what the lights are indicating.

My hp photosmart 5514 won't print. I put in new ink-black and color- and it goes through the motions, but the page is empty


I just had this exact problem on my HP 5514. Black won't print after running out of black ink. New cartridge no good.
I tried everything-no good. I suspected the pinholes in the printhead were clogged with dried ink because I didn't change cartridge in time.
The fix that worked perfectly was when I hacksaw top off old black cartridge & removed all foam wicks so now I had a funnel(can see clear thru). I installed the cartridge & filled it with alcohol, printed page & did head clean; then printed few more pages. Problem cleared almost immediately. I then soaked up extra alcohol inside cartridge with paper towel. Removed modified cartridge & installed good one. I guess this could be done for colors as well. I don't know if this is a proper procedure, but it sure worked well for me.

My deskjet 3745 wii not print with new ink. The cartridge shows full and the printer goes thru all the motions. The final print is no color and light black


Use the HP software (installed when you installed the printer) to run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle -- you've got lots of ink, but the print-heads are CLOGGED.

Do I need a color cartridge to print in black ink


the paper was black or blank? i think you mean blank, the ink will dry out over time replacing the cartridges will most likely solve the problem, or for the cost of the two cartridges u may want to consider a new cheap printer.

take your ink cartridge out from your printer. you can see at the ink carriage there are little pipes where the ink usually flow from cartridge. If head cleaning and power cleaning does not work, then try to clean those pipes by using 96% alcohol fluids and **** the pipes using something.

Put in new cartridge and unit will not print. Goes through all of the motions but doesn't print. Printed many pages before "low on ink" message. Why does it not print now?


It may be caused by some issues. Check:

* Did you remove the plastic from the connections from the cartridge as the instructions indicates?

* Is the cartridge connector from the printer ok?

* Is the cartridge correctly installed?

* It's a new cartridge? I mean, NEW. Not refilled one or a cartridge that expired two years ago.

* Try running one or two "Clean printer head" procedure to see if ink flows.

Good luck !

Epson Stylus CX7400 Ink Light Problem


You need to open up the maintenance window and go thru the motions that you are changing the cartridges and this resets the ink levels back to full and sends data to the printer saying that they are full and the ink light disappears and it prints fine !!!

Just changing them doesn't seem to do the trick like on a lot of printers
