    I just bought a color and black printer cartridge and the black ink is not appearing on paper - only the color ink is. What are the reasons this would happen?

Put new ink cartridges in my kodak all in one ESP5020 does not recognise or print black ? Why have reinserted inks, clean print head calibrated to no avail not sure what to do next...

Sometimes one gets a cartridge that has a defective chip and cannot be recognized by the printer. Return the cartridge where you purchased it and get a new one. If the new one is not recognized, you will need to have the printer serviced or replaced.

Hope that helps,

After I put new ink in the printer it doesn't print correctly. Black is fine but the color only comes up in pink and blue.

Take the color cartridge back out then put back in making sure to fully seat it. Also, you could have an old cartidge where the ink has dried. Also after replacing ink you need to calibrate the head via the printer utility program. Speaking of that after you have reseated the cartridge open the utility and see if it has something that says "Clean Head" or something to that effect. If none of that works then return the cartridge where you purchased and get a defective return for replacement.

Just put 2 new ink cartridges in my printer - black and tricolor. the printer receives the message to print, sends the paper through and sounds like it is printing, but then the paper is blank with no ink...


Just remove the new 2 cartridges and rub the print head in a plain paper with isopropyl alcohol until ink flows, and then return the ink cartridges and run the print nozzle for 2-3 times. After that, try to print again.

Please let me know if you need more help.

Dell a940 error code 50c

From doing my research, I have found that the 50C Error message comes from the cartridge, usually if it has been refilled. If this cartridge is new, please return it to the place of purchase for a new one or a refund.

Here's what happens when you refill the Dell Series 2 ink cartridges. There is a sensor in them that cannot be reset.

Dell ink cartridges can only be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's website.

Dell ink cartridges have a sensor that reports the ink level as low once it reaches a certain level. The sensor can not be reset. If you refill an ink cartridge that previously reported low ink, it may print fine, but the sensor will always report low ink. Buying or replacing ink cartridges with new Dell cartridges will resolve the low ink message.

Dell discourages ink refills. Refilling ink may lead to print quality problems, and even eventual hardware problems.

if u have not refilled ur cartridge and u still get this error i suggest u buy a new cartridge.....

good luck
have a nice day

DX7450 will not acknowledge new black cartridge

My first thought would be that you purchased a defective cartridge. It happens sometimes. Return it to the retailer for exchange and they in turn will return it to their supplier. If the printer still thinks the cartridge is missing or empty, something has failed in the printer. You can decide what to do with the printer at that time.

Epson C66 new cartridge won't print

I think we can put this one to bed as "Poster very unhappy with Epson Printers and Fixya!"

Not printing

Make sure the tape on the top of the cartridge is completely removed (If there is still a seal Vacuum the ink won't flow).

Run up to 5 deep head cleanings in a row (Print test page)
wait 5 minutes (for heads to cool and repeat the process....)

If this fails to produce any printout, you may need to purchase head cleaning solution and allow it to soak in overnight.

I had a similar problem and needed 2 head cleaning kits.

I have the same problem.  At first I thought the printhead clogged but dipping it in solvent did not work.  I guess the only thing we could do is to buy a new print head, but at the cost it's going at, we might as well get a new printer.  Other than that try sent a RMA.
