Black Ink cartridge has 50% content remaining and just faded to nothing. Read other posts here and on other forums. Purge tube appears to be working with bubbles travelling down it at a rate. Anyhow, if it were the purge tube at fault I think that this would affect all the colours??? wouldn't it??? For the moment I'll go get a head cleaning kit and a replacement cartridge. I'll post my results. But would appreciate any tips.
Hey Johnny, Your dead right. The purge tube would affect all the colours. If you are using refilled carts, try just changing the cart. Approx 10% of all refilled carts fail - so it is entirely possible you have hit on a bad one. If you are using the good stuff, I would suggest getting the cleaning kit and doing the manual clean to clear any blocked nozzles. What does the nozzle check pattern show? If there are a few lines visible, I would guess cleaning will sort it for you. Let us know how you get on...
