Question about Canon MultiPASS MP370 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Black ink not printing properly

The black ink section is not working correctly - only prints bits here and there. Have tried 3 different cartridges with the same result, so it is definitely not the cartridge itself. I have tried everything sensible like self clean processes from the software, shutting everything down etc.etc. Advice gratefully received

    I have exactly the same problem as described. No issues with color prints, but only gets 50% when printing black. However this is only when printing text - when printing images there are no problems

Hp Officejet 6000 not printing black ink, I have replaced ink cartridges, checked contacts, cleaned print heads, still not working

Try taking out the printhead and let it soak in "window cleaning" solution overnight or for about 8 hours. It should unclog the printhead nozzle. Put it in about half inch of the solution. It always worked for me. Make sure you wipe it dry un the back of the printhead when putting back into the printer.

How do you install ink of epson l110

Follow the given steps:

Step 1
Turn on your printer and open the hatch or cover where the ink is stored. Different printer models are configured differently and may take different types of ink cartridges. Check your specific model for exact instructions (see Resources for Epson support site).
Step 2
Remove any old cartridges by gently pulling up and away from the printer.

Step 3
Remove the tape from the new ink cartridge covering the contacts. Avoid touching the contacts with your hands or clothing as this may damage the cartridge.
Step 4
Install the cartridge in the appropriate slot by pushing gently down and towards the printer until it snaps in. Some printer models have a black cartridge and several color cartridges. Some models only have one black cartridge and one color cartridge. Be careful not to mix them.
Step 5
Align your new cartridge by following the printer's instructions. Test for proper installation by printing a test page. Navigate to "Control Panel-->Printers-->Epson-->Properties-->Maintenance-->Print Test Page." If the page does not print correctly, consult Epson support for help.

It won't print in black. We have tried 3 differant cartridges. At times it prints a shasding of the image. All the other colors work fine.

Use the HP Printing Assistant software to run a few "print-head-cleaning-cycles".
The BLACK ink-jets are CLOGGED. So, no ink from any of the 3 different cartridges reaches the paper.

Bland and color cartridges have been refilled but

Ink level counter (program) didn't read actually ink at ink tank. Brand new cartridge ink level counter 100% (full), and ink 100% (about 10 ml). After may printing, ink will dry out, and ink level counter reach zero (ink out). Printer will not allow print anymore, even have refilled, because ink level read "ink out". For canon type, you just to release ink level counter, and counter just stop, but printer will allow to print. Press stop/reset button for about 30 second.

Compatibles wont work

Try this:

The HP all-in-one product will print black copies using both the color and black cartridges to create composite black in Normal and Best modes. This is necessary to create the correct grayscale shades.
  1. The color cartridge may be out of one color of ink. Perform the steps in the 'Colors are not correct' section above to verify that the ink cartridges are not low on ink.
  2. Verify that the correct paper type is selected in the Paper Type setting.
  3. Some photo paper has different chemical characteristics than Hewlett-Packard paper. The HP all-in-one is designed for use with HP Premium and Premium Plus Photo Paper. The photo paper, paper-type setting should be used with HP Photo Paper. For other paper brands, it may be necessary to use the plain paper or premium Inkjet paper, paper-type settings.
OR: The ink cartage you have may be defective if is a refilled or recharged cartage.

Hi,
I'm sorry you are having problems with your Lexmark printer.

Please ensure you are using the correct cartridge.

X3350:
Black 32
Color 33

X5470
Black:28
Color: 29

If you are using the correct cartridge for your machine you can try to do the following:

Cleaning the print nozzles: (X5470)
1 Load plain paper.
2 Press Copy Mode.
3 Press .
4 Press or repeatedly until Tools appears.
5 Press .
6 Press or repeatedly until Maintenance appears.
7 Press .
8 Press or repeatedly until Clean Cartridges appears.
9 Press .
A page prints, forcing ink through the print cartridge nozzles to clean them.
10 Print the document again to verify that the print quality has improved.
11 If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the nozzles up to two more times.
Wiping the print cartridge nozzles and contacts:
1 Remove the print cartridges.
2 Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth with water.
3 Gently hold the cloth against the nozzles for about three seconds, and then wipe in the direction shown.
4 Using another clean section of the cloth, gently hold the cloth against the contacts for about three seconds, and
then wipe in the direction shown.
5 With another clean section of the cloth, repeat step 3 and step 4.
6 Let the nozzles and contacts dry completely.
7 Reinsert the print cartridges.
8 Print the document again.
9 If the print quality does not improve, clean the print nozzles. For more information, see “Cleaning the print
cartridge nozzles” on page 92.
10 Repeat step 9 up to two more times.
11 If print quality is still not satisfactory, replace the print cartridges.
If you are still getting the incorrect cartridge message it would be best to return the cartridge and exchange it for a new one.
Thanks
