Did you remove any type of protective material that may be on the cartridge before installation?

Printer no black, already went thru printer's clean printhead and even cleaned print head by running alcohol thru the ink lines


Alcohol is not the way to clean a print head. Simply run the hottest tap water into the ink inlet and print head for several seconds. Since print heads create heat to form the ink droplets needed to form a letter or graphic; running hot water will not DAMAGE the sensitive heads. Alcohol is fine for removing a film (Like fingerprints) from the surface and contacts, but not to be used internally within the head itself.
May as well get a new Black Cart now.

Black ink won't print even though the cartridge is


Hi,

It could be you just have a bad cartridge, If it's new, take it back and get a new one to make sure it's not the cartridge. If you get the new one and it still doesn't print black, then you have a bad print head. Meaning it would need to go to a service dealer to replace or repair the print head.

Thanks Mark

BOUGHT NEW CARTRIDGES (BLACK & COLOR) COST $70!! WILL NOT PRINT. SOUNDS LIKE PRINTING BUT BLANK PAGES COME OUT. . IS THERE A WAY TO CLEAN- UNCLOG PRINTHEADS MYSELF WITHOUT TAKING TO SERVICE MAN. CAN'T...


There are a few things you can do yourself to try and get the print heads flowing again, but they won't give you as good of results as a professional cleaning or new print head. I would say that the print head is most likely clogged if you let the machine sit for more than a few weeks without printing on it. If your last set of cartridges worked fine and then you immediately put in new cartridges and it didn't print, I would say the print heads may not be clogged but expired (no amount of cleaning will get them working again). To clean the print heads yourself first rub off any accumulated ink with a warm water soaked paper towel. As a check to see how your cleaning progress is going press the print head against a dry paper towel. You should see distinct entire lines for each color. You can then try resting the print head on a paper towel soaked in warm water to hydrate the print head. If no ink soaks into the towel at all after a few minutes the print head needs more cleaning than you can do yourself. Unless you know someone with a hand held garment steamer with a narrow nozzle on it you can steam the print head to loosen up the ink stuck in it.

Canon MP360 not printing


You probably need a new purge assembly, it draws some ink to both clean and prime the printhead. When it stops working you won't get any ink to the paper.

Epson photo 995 - black ink not printing


This is a common problem I have found with Epson printers. If you don’t use the printer on a regular basis the printer heads can clog. I have found no way to clean the heads once this occurs. I will now only purchase HP printers because the printer heads are part of the ink cartridges. With every cartridge change you get new heads, end of that problem!

Printer will not print black ink


Hi please try these steps:::

Right-click the printer icon, and then select 'Properties'.
2. Click the 'Maintenance' tab, and then click 'Deep Cleaning'.

3. Select 'All Colors', 'Black' or 'Color' for the print head to be cleaned.

4. Read the message displayed, and then click 'OK'. The power lamp blinks and print head deep cleaning starts. (Do not perform any other operations until print head deep cleaning is complete. Print head deep cleaning takes about 1 minute.)

IF ABOVE STEPS DOESN'T WORK TRY THESE STEPS BELOW

Check ink tank vent hole The ink tank requires air to flow through it so ink can move from the reservoir to the print heads.

  1. Confirm there is no orange tape across the top of the ink tank

  2. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (1), it is properly removed.

    *BCI-3's shown in this example.

  3. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (2), remove the remaining tape to the level shown in Figure (1).

  4. Make sure each ink tank is snapped into the printer.

    IF THESE STEPS DIDNOT WORK THEN YOUR PRINTER NEEDS REPAIR(You might need to change the printer head.)

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..
