Have a look at the bk cart. Did you fix it well into position by clipping the support above the cart?
Can you see any difference by ink fuel before and after cleaning cycle? If there is no difference the valve is not open: drill a hole into the top cover and leave it open. Try another cleaning cycle again.

The first thing to check would be your print utility. Make sure that it is aware that there is a black cartridge installed. If you've gone through the cleaning process, try printing a test page and see if that will print the black. If not, it is either a setting in your utility telling it not to print in black and white, or a hardware issue with your printer. I will look up some documentation for your make and model printer to see what else the problem might be. Please advise with any changes when you check the print utility.

Sketchy printing, yellow and black very faint


Try to change the inkjet cartridges for the black and color because you may only be able to get no more than 105 pages out of a cartridge, assuming it hasn't gone through a cleaning process which uses up a lot of ink.

Unfortunately, most ink jet printers have very expensive ink for printing small jobs, compared to say a laser printer.

The print Head has gone bad. Not using a printer that often will dry out the print head. The print head is where the ink goes. Try to get a cue tip and put some Alcohol in the place where the ink goes through. These should be small sponge like things underneath the ink cartridges.

Printing problem


Since it sounds like you've gone through all the steps to clean the print head, I would suggest trying a new black cartridge. There may be a problem with the one you have.

3e Black cartridge won't print


I'm not an expert but I go through a lot of ink.. I have found that even with new ink some of the tanks of ink aren't any good especially with compatible which i buy a lot of because it's a lot cheaper (ebay). With that ink I have gone through 10 cartridges in a row before finding one that worked correctly again (I mean out of 100+ cartridges hitting a run of 10 that where bad but the rest good.)

Also, a tech for epson once told me to hit deep clean 7 times in a row before a head check to clean their nozzles.. That has helped with my printer and at Fry's electronics, they have a cleaning solvent in kit, haven't tried it, but i have run alcohol through mine but I'm told that is very ******* the print head (dissolves the glue).

Hope that helped..

Black ink won't print at all


Run the cleaning process a couple of times.  The printhead might have gotten sucked dry.
