Hi, first things to check are you took the yellow tag off the cartridge when you put it in, or it wont print. 2nd. try doing head cleaning a few times incase the print heads are blocked, 3rd might be just a faulty cartridge.. all the best John

You need to take it a couple steps further after your test print. Sounds like your print heads need cleaning or your cartridge may need aligning. It’s best to do this each time you install a new cartridge. for more information….... http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-40171-printer-not-printing-black

SCREEN READS "INSERT RIGHT CARTRIDGE" ONLY THE COLOR CARTRIDGE IS LOADED. CAN'T I STILL GET IT TO PRINT??????

No..! you need to install the black cartridge..!
The printer needs to be aligned with both the cartridges no matter if they are empty or full. So even if the black cartridge is empty and the color cartridge is full. The color will print and the black wouldn't.

But if you install only one cartridge it will not work as i said that the printer could not align to the cartridges unless both the cartridges are installed.

On some printers if you install the black one only it works. Without installing the color one. But on this printer It is mandatory to install both the cartridges together other wise it will give you error codes.

This model needs the cartridges to be aligned and then print and if you see inside the printer it has a carriage holder for two cartridges which moves back and forth to print.

So install the black cartridge and it will work perfect.

Printer wont print black.already replaced with new ink but still wont print black

did you take the tape off the new cartridge and is the print head burned out for the black? if you installed the diagnostic's on it then run it and see what it says, otherwise expect the print head to be cooked, however it is possible to get a bad ink cartridge try tapping it on your finger and see if ink comes out if it does not then the ink cartridge is dried out or no good, about %15 of print cartridges are bad on just about any brand printer some more than others.

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking BEWARE SPAM NUMBER 1-800-532-4187

you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.

Canon IP90 portable . No ink printing.

Have you performed a nozzle test? If one or more of the colors is missing when you do the nozzle test, the printhead itself is likely in need of replacement.

Before considering replacment, perform a clean on the printer. Due to variations between mac and pc, please see your documentation / support files on how to perform the clean on your printer.

After performing the clean, again perform the nozzle check to see if the problem is resolved.

If still not resolved, remove and re-install any cartridges you recently replaced to make certain they are installed correctly.
