The printer in out of colour ink, and still wont print in black and white


Replace the colour ink. Some printers mix-in a bit of coloured ink, when printing "black", in order to prevent the colour-inks from drying-out.

I want to print in white ink on black paper. I have a Canon MX310 printer


Inkjet printer inks are dye-based, and that's the reason.

Perhaps this will help explain things. You know those little boxes of food colouring you can buy in the supermarket - the ones that have four little bottles of colour - red, blue, yellow and green. Within reason you can combine these to turn white icing into most colours. Use nothing and the icing is still white or use everything and the icing will go a black-brown colour. Use a couple of drops of red and blue and you'll get purple.

But if you start with black icing, there's nothing you can add that will make it anything but black.

It's the same with your inkjet printer - because white is obtained by not having any ink print on the white paper. But of course that only works when the paper is white. Naturally you'll get different results on all colours of paper, decreasing as the paper gets darker in colour. Print blue on yellow paper and you should get green printing.

The only way to print in white is to do what commercial printers do - use opaque inks and include a white ink in the process. And as far as I know there's no commercial ink that will do that with an inkjet printer.

I can hear lots of you muttering "Rubbish. Of course you can print light colours on dark paper." Well all I can say is, have fun experimenting, but you won't be able to do it.

About the only way to achieve the sort of result you may be after is to print the job then trim it and paste it in place. For instance, if you want to print onto a black or dark-coloured T-shirt then print onto white transfer material, trim the print to size and iron it in place.

What does it mean when it says change k cartridge


There should be four ink cartridges inside the printer: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and blacK.

While monitors build colours out of three emissive (active) base colours, red, green and blue, printers usually build them out of four absorbing (passive) inks, so-called CMYK. The black is referred to by its last letter to avoid confusion with Blue.

On most printers, since they usually print in black ink over white paper (and black is used to darken all other colours), the K cartridge is either bigger than the others, or needs to be replaced more often.

Printer is refusing to print colour, with full colour ink tank.


Have you checked the ink levels in your cartridges? Ink can dry due to usage and also due to prolonged non usage.

Lexmark printer x6570 unable to allign after putting in new cartr


In this case what i would request u to do is....... Take out both the catridges from the Printer......... Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be dry........... Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the catridge from where the ink comes out....... Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 Seconds...... Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel.......... U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same way........ Now do the same procedure again.......... Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge................. Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper Towel.......... Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer the Colour Catridge should go in the right side and the black on the left........ Good Luck

I cannot print but i have only the black cartridge but i dont have the yellow cyan ang midget


Most modern printers use some colour when printing Black and therefore will not print if ANY ink cartridge is showing as empty.

Unless your printer has a setting for using Black ink only (this is not the same as printing a black and white document), then you will need to purchase and install the colour cartridges before printing can take place. The good thing about this is that very little colour ink is used when printing black and white documents - so they should last a long time.

Good luck.

Printing in black & white when color cartridge ran out


One of the possible reason why you can't print black in white because Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. More than that Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head.

Won't print black


I found a solution to the Black printing problem :)
Under Printing Preferences: Set your Media Type to Photo Paper Pro.
We used edible ink cartridges and printed onto icing sugar paper. Same old... Just one day it refused to print black. In order to continue our small business, I degraded the color until I printed gray and not black.

Tonight, I browsed for the problem and came across this :)

Hope it helps you too
