I have the same problem. According to another site I visited you will not be able to solve your problem by refilling the 28 cartridge (black ink). You will need to purchase a 28A ink cartridge which is refillable.

Hi I bought a lexmark S405 and when my ink finished, i decided to refill the black catridge but the print wont print unless i buy a new catridge which is expensive than buying a new printer. I wanna...


The Lexmark S405 printer requires all cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing.

The 100/100XL cartridges are not licensed to be refilled. You can, however, refill the 100A or 100XLA cartridges available on the Lexmark website at http://www.lexmark.com. You should be aware that a refilled cartridge will not be able to report its ink level, and you might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark to pass through microscopic nozzles at extremely high temperatures.

Ink cartridge not properly installed


I have gone through all the forums but none of them worked...

The correct solution for the problem is the canon printer needs to have both the color and black catridges present in the printer...
So even if you purchased new black catridge only you need to have the old color catridge to be placed in the place of color catridge....

So it will detect the catridges and if any of the one is empty it asks to select black at the time of printing and simply select it you will get a black print...

So make sure both the catridges either empty or full need to be placed to detect the catridges....

I hope it will be helpful.....

How do you print a document using color ink? I am out of black ink.


Ink is a lubricant for the print heads. Some color ink is used even if you only print in black or vice-versa. If you printed with black ink missing, you could destroy that print head from the friction of running without ink to lubricate it. That's why most printers won't allow you to print with black ink missing even if you aren't using it. That's the case with your Canon printer.

If you allow a color to go empty, the residual ink in the head could clog and become permanently blocked. You would never be able to print that color again. So always replace ink cartridges as soon as they are empty.

Printer not printing in black. Print Color only.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First of all please try the refill cartridge on some other printer. If it’s working fine on the other printer then check the settings of the printer which are by default 960 dpi (dots per inch) but due to some reason this size has been reduced. Now you have to change this setting to more than 960, around 1200 dpi and then check out that if your printer works fine.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.



Thanks
Rylee

I changed my black ink and now i get the message left cartridge incorrect..how do i fix it?


HP PSC 2210 InkJet Printer. The following has to be done for checking the Blank Ink Catridge working : 01. Remove the existing Black catridge and Color Catridges from the Printer carefully. 02. Clean the location with a soft cloth with cleaning liquid to make the place dust free. 03. Put the correct black and colour cartridges recommended by HP and that too genuine one. 04. Do not use any refilled or reinked local catridges that will spoil the HP PSC 2210 printer. 05. Re-install the catridges both Black and Colour properly. 06. Take a test print out - both black and colour print outs. 07. Check the Printer status and there is no warning of Cartridges wrongly inserted. Have a Good day.

C4200 Not printing black ink, which is new


Its purely your CATRIDGE problem...so please open up your printer and check for the two small black colored boxes..in that you can easily identify the B/W one....so if its lighter in weight compared to that of coloured one....you need to refill it or buy a new catridge......THIS is the only solution to this problem..

Ink cartridge


The message seems to be saying that you have two black cartridges installed and therefore one of the colors is missing. Is that possible?
