The following may work: remove all the ink supplies. Remove the printhead and soak it for about 5 minutes in 0.5" of very hot water. Gently blot the printhead on a soft damp paper towel to remove the excess water, then replace in the printer and then reinstall the ink supplies.

Print colour pictures from laptop to printer


If your printer can print in color and your printer is set to print in color, then you need to do nothing else, it should print in color. There are only 4 things that could prevent you from printing in color. 1. The printer settings is set to print in shades of grey. 2. The printer itself is set to print in black and white only. 3. There is no more ik in your color cartridges. 4. You don't own a color printer.

The Lexmark Impact S305 printer requires all the cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing - even if you're printing using black ink only. To print true black, you actually use some of the color ink.
Note: Leaving the color cartridge empty or dry isn't good for the printer. It can lead to poor print quality if you want to print color in the future.

The printer won't print. It says replace the color ink cartridge. All I want to do is print black and white.


You can only use the black ink cartridge without the color ink. But no need to replace them in your printer.
When you print just choose black and white for the printed text must be black not colored. But if you still received such notification...just try to replace the color ink cartridge to continue printing
Note: As per my experience. printer with exclusive black ink alone will damage the printer easily due to unbalance printing of ink

I have a kodak ESP-3 all in one printer that has a new black, and new color ink cartridge, and the printer does not print any colors. only prints black, grey, and a litte bit of greenish tint.


Inkjet printers do not like being left unused.
The color print head may be blocked. Try several deep cleaning of the print head to see if it can clear the blocked print nozzles.
If none of this works then the print head needs to be replaced.
A new cartridge will not solve this problem.
NOTE the print head is not a cheap item, you may consider putting the money towards a new and better printer.

I have a lexmark x2470 printer.i would like to know whether it as one cartidge or two cartridges.please let me know if it is available in indaia


HI,

Please note that the #2 cartridge is the starter cartridge and the after market cartridge is the #1 cartridge.

The Lexmark X2470 printer uses the #1 cartridge which prints both color and black accordingly. While printing black it uses processed black. Hence, to print color images in "Black Only," please follow the steps given below:
1. Click on "Start," "All Programs," "Lexmark X2470 printer" group and then "Lexmark Photo Editor."
2. Click on "File" and then "Open" to select the color image file.
3. Click on "Image," "Mode" and then select "Grayscale."
4. Click on "Print."
This will print the image in gray.

Can't print photo in black and white


Could this be the problem? From the User Guide: "Print Color images in Black and White -- Print your color images in black and white to save the ink in your color ink cartridge.
NOTE: You cannot select this setting if you have selected Color Cartridge for all Black Printing"

My MP530 willnot print black printed text. How do I now if the ink head is plugged and what do I do about it?


Hi ...

I would suggest you try and clean the print head and that should resolve the problem. Follow the below steps to clean the print head:

Perform a Cleaning of the print head:
Caution: Cleaning consumes a certain amount of ink. Perform Cleaning only when necessary.
Note: The pattern varies depending on the printer and version of Windows being used.
  1. Click 'Cleaning' to perform print head cleaning from the Pattern Check window and proceed to step 3 of the print head cleaning instructions. If the Pattern Check window is closed, skip this step and proceed to step 2.

  2. To perform a print head cleaning from the Maintenance window, click 'Cleaning'.

    mp_500_win_maint_phc.jpg

  3. When the Print Head Cleaning window is displayed, select the target ink group for 'Cleaning'.


    Note: When performing Cleaning for all colors, check 'All Colors'.

    mp_500_ph_cleaning_all_colors.jpg


    Note: When performing Cleaning for Black only, deselect 'All Colors' and check 'Black'.

    mp_500_ph_cleaning_black_only.jpg


    Note: When performing Cleaning for Color only, deselect 'All Colors', and check 'Color'.

    mp_500_ph_cleaning_color_only.jpg

  4. After selecting the target ink group click 'Execute' to perform the cleaning of the print head nozzles.

    mp_500_ph_cleaning_execute.jpg

  5. When the confirming message is displayed, check the contents, and click 'OK'.


    Caution: Although the Nozzle Check window is displayed, do not perform any other operations until Cleaning is completed.. Cleaning will take about 40 seconds.


  6. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern and examine.

  7. Perform Cleaning again if necessary.


    Memo: If the pattern is still abnormal after two Cleanings, perform up to two Deep Cleanings.


Perform Deep Cleaning of the print head
Caution: Deep Cleaning consumes a larger amount of ink than normal Cleaning. Perform Deep Cleanings only when necessary.
  1. In the Maintenance window, click 'Deep Cleaning'.

    mp_500_win_maint_dphc.jpg


    Note: The layout varies depending on the printer and version of Windows you are using.

  2. When the Deep Cleaning window is displayed, select the target ink group for Deep Cleaning.

    mp_500_dph_cleaning_targets.jpg


    Note: When performing Cleaning for all colors, check 'All Colors'.

    mp_500_dph_cleaning_all_colors.jpg


    Note: When performing Cleaning for Black only, deselect 'All Colors' and check 'Black'.

    mp_500_dph_cleaning_black_only.jpg


    Note: When performing Cleaning for Color only, deselect 'All Colors', and check 'Color'.

    mp_500_dph_cleaning_color_only.jpg

  3. Click 'Execute'.

    mp_500_dph_cleaning_execute.jpg

    Memo: By clicking 'Initial Check Items' before clicking 'Print Check Pattern', you can see the specific confirmation items in Nozzle Check.

  4. When the confirming message is displayed, click 'OK'. (The Power lamp will blink green and Deep Cleaning starts. The blink stops when Deep Cleaning is over.)

  5. When Deep Cleaning starts, check the contents, and click 'OK'.


    Caution: To prevent interruption of the Deep Cleaning process, do not perform any other operations until Deep Cleaning is completed. When the operation of the printer is stopped, Deep Cleaning is completed. Deep Cleaning will take about 75 seconds.


  6. Print Nozzle Check again.


    Note: If the printed pattern is still not normal, perform steps 1 through 4 of the Deep Cleaning process one additional time.


    Caution: If after two Deep Cleanings the Nozzle Check Pattern is still not normal, turn the printer off and let it sit for 24 hours or more before attempting another Deep Cleaning again. The wait time may allow dried ink in clogged print head nozzles to liquefy, and resolve the problem
If this does not resolve the problem, please reply back and we'll try the next step ...

Will not print any color - perfect black though


are you sure you've attached a colored print cartridge? Because if you don't have a colored print cartridge, the printer won't print out colored documents. OR, if you DO HAVE a colored cartridge, check if it still has ink. Have it refilled if it's got none. OR... if you got a cartridge, and has ink in it, the settings of the printer itself might be set to: black and white or greyscale. You can change this setting at the settings, though! good luck!
