    can't print any documents, orange light keeps on flashing with an error message of a ink tank error. When opening cover, the ink tank for black 5 was off. has reinserted it , restarted computer, switched off computer, reinserted ink tank numerous times to no avail. The original problem with ink tank 5 started shortly ater inserting a new tank, the error message was then dual tanks installed , but that got resolved, error message disappeared.

Orange cartridge light is flashing. I know the black cartridge is empty, but the colour cartridge is o.k. Why can't I print in colour?


Inkjet printers use a combination of inks to produce colors; while you may not realize it, your printer uses black ink to print colors as well, to darken the hue of a color. Otherwise, it would be limited to very "bright" colors. Replace the black cartridge, you will be fine.

Black ink jet doesn't print


if your black ink does not print, there is a possibility that the nozzle of your printer are clogged by dried inks, to print a nozzle check. turn off the printer then press and hold the paper (middle) and power buttons together for 3 seconds then release. it should feed the paper and print a nozzle check pattern. if the black lines are full of gaps or breaks in the line. you need to do head cleaning to remove the clogs, press and hold the ink button (teardrop) for 3 seconds, wait until the power (green )light stopped flashing. turn the printer off then print a nozzle check again. just repeat the head cleaning process until the black pattern is ok, as well as the other colors. all shld. be complete.

then print

Canon i250, black text won't print, but ok with nozzle check


Canon i250. Instructions on this website solved the problem of flashing green and orange lights, but now the black won't print. Changed ink cartridges, but still no print. Did a diagnostic nozzle check, and the black DID print. What do I do now?

Printer will not print black ink


Hi please try these steps:::

Right-click the printer icon, and then select 'Properties'.
2. Click the 'Maintenance' tab, and then click 'Deep Cleaning'.

3. Select 'All Colors', 'Black' or 'Color' for the print head to be cleaned.

4. Read the message displayed, and then click 'OK'. The power lamp blinks and print head deep cleaning starts. (Do not perform any other operations until print head deep cleaning is complete. Print head deep cleaning takes about 1 minute.)

IF ABOVE STEPS DOESN'T WORK TRY THESE STEPS BELOW

Check ink tank vent hole The ink tank requires air to flow through it so ink can move from the reservoir to the print heads.

  1. Confirm there is no orange tape across the top of the ink tank

  2. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (1), it is properly removed.

    *BCI-3's shown in this example.

  3. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (2), remove the remaining tape to the level shown in Figure (1).

  4. Make sure each ink tank is snapped into the printer.

    IF THESE STEPS DIDNOT WORK THEN YOUR PRINTER NEEDS REPAIR(You might need to change the printer head.)
