This might sound really silly, but when you removed the protective tape over the cartridge, did it all come off? I had this problem once, and the tape had separated, the coloured part had come off leaving a clear film over the print head. Once I peeled that off, all was well. Hope that helps. Aileen xx

I have a Lexmark X6690 and bought new Lexmark print cartridges today - Black and Colour. The printer is recognising the colour cartridge but not the black one. Driving me nuts!! Please help x

Try to reseat the black cartridge. If that doesn't help, try to clean the cartridge nozzles. On the printer operator panel > press Setup button > Maintenance > Clean Cartridges > Ok. Your printer will then print a page, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean them. Try to print again. You may also try to insert a different known working black cartridge to determine if the other is faulty. If your new cartridge is faulty, return it to the purchase store (if within return period) or contact Lexmark technical support for assistance.

Lexmark x1270 won't print in colour

There is nothing wroung with refilling but there is something wroung with the cartridge if it does not print. You might have ran out of refill cycles on that particular cartridge and not even know about the cycle requirments for lexmark printers. Your issue could be resolved by purchasing a new cartridge fixing the old one is not going to cut it.

I suffer from white streaks and light printing. A new samsung black cartridge was installed, same problem. Colour printing OK. Machine is only on it's second black cartridge.

Clean your printer head and nozzle with printer utility software. Hope it would solve your problem, if not, open the black cartridge and fit it again and try to print again. Though, not work, perhaps problem in you black cartridge, so purchase an original cartridge. Thanks.

Can't print color only black and white

Please check if your Colour Ink Cartridge is not emply. If their's ink in the cartridge then try to service your printer through the Print Preferences. Your Colour Cartridge Nozzels could have been blocked thats why your printer is unable to print in Colour.

In case if both the above doesn't work then check in the Print Preferences that you should not have saved the option of PRINT DOCUMENT IN BLACK ONLY. hope this helps , AJ

Epson 1290 - I just want to print in black and white

Unfortunately, Epson printers demand that both black and colour cartridges are OK before the printer will work at all. Now, if you are really sure that you only want to print black, the most cost-effective solution for you is to buy an Epson Chip resetter on E-Bay. This will reset your empty colour cartridge to "full", as far as the printer is concerned. You can then happily continue with your black-only printing.

Black Printer cartridge

It will tell you the colour is low, regardless of the format in which you are printing. I don't believe Canon provide a way for you to disable this for their printer range, so you'll need to put in the new colour cartridge to get rid of this error. (you should however, be able to print whilst receiving this message)

I cannot print but i have only the black cartridge but i dont have the yellow cyan ang midget

Most modern printers use some colour when printing Black and therefore will not print if ANY ink cartridge is showing as empty.

Unless your printer has a setting for using Black ink only (this is not the same as printing a black and white document), then you will need to purchase and install the colour cartridges before printing can take place. The good thing about this is that very little colour ink is used when printing black and white documents - so they should last a long time.

Good luck.

Printer prints in color but has gaps

Have you tried a new colour cartridge? This is a classic sign that the cartridge may be low on ink. When printing text, assuming you are printing black, it is likely that the black cart is doing most of the work so the gaps are insignificant. You could try printing text in several different colours. If the colour cartridge is low, you'll find that some colours may be ok but others may have gaps.

Best to try a new cart if you have one.
