Most likely your print head is clogged, there are 2,000 some nozzle's in it. If the printer is not used for a moderate amount of time the ink can dry up and cause a clog in those nozzle's. You can try reseating the ink cartridges(take them out turn off power, unplug printer, power back on & wait for it to get done making noise) then proceed doing a printhead clean from the main menu, or homecenter->?->maintenance. Then after that do a calibration, print a demo sheet to see if there is any improvment. The printhead clean pushes ink through the nozzles to try to clear clogs. The calibration scans those nozzles to see which are avalible to use, and makes sure that all the avalible nozzles are being used. If this does not fix the problem you most likely need a printhead but you will have to call kodak; as they are not avalible in stores. Also you can try updating your firmware from kodak home center, or www.kodak.com/go/downloads

Insert black crd message zebra p120i


Dont worry, this is not error! The printer is asking to continue with calibration procedure:
After a few seconds, the printer prompt for the black card when it displays "INSERT BLACK CARD" so, Feed the black card through the front of the printer (where the card exits through) with the black side up, until the printer takes the card in automatically. You will get one of two results: a. RIB SENSOR PASS. Indicates the ribbon sensor was calibrated successfully.

Hp laserjet 1320 printer printing problum the printing black black point.


Black printer ink in HP Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

Printer is not printing black but in a pinkish color


Most printers use the colour cartridge to make black, instead of the black cartridge. When you go to print a black and white document, on the box where you choose the number of pages to print, click properties, and locate the colour settings. There will be two options: Colour/Black and White-with a sub option of high quality or black only. Select Black only. The printer will now only use the black ink.

Hp psc 1210xi- the black ink cartridge appears to be out- i have a good color cartridge-how do I get the error off of my printer and print with my color cartridge?


  1. Take out the black cartridge once you've determined that you are completely out of black ink. You'll have to rely on the dark hues from the color cartridge to print in black.
  2. Adjust the printer software settings. Once you take out the black cartridge, your printer's software will typically warn you that you are missing a cartridge. Follow the instructions for your printer to allow the printer to print without the black cartridge. Then set the printer to print in black and white, not color. This overrides the black cartridge and allows the printer to access the dark hues of the color cartridge.
  3. Print a test page to ensure that your printer now prints black using the color cartridge.
  4. Print your documents. Bear in mind that your documents may not appear as black as normal. Still, they should be dark enough to pass for black, depending on how much color ink you have and the strength grade of the ink.

Check the capabilities of the printer in the manual. But in general- to get black general purpose printers print all colours. This is the normal way to get a black black in the CYMK process. Some printers offer black only as a setting or a special black/monochrome ink. Some specialist ink suppliers[Lycos] will offer a 'black set' that is where the colour carts are replaced with a shades of grey. Where does your printer come in this scheme of things also take a look here www.fixyourownprinter.com
