Cyan ink was full - now it's empty a day later?

Hi, i read that you couldn't print at all with this unless every ink cartridge was there and full. i replaced the black ink cartridge, now all of them are full. i printed one small image, added photo paper for a new print and all of a sudden cyan ink is empty. how is this possible?! it was on full level and now it's all gone..

Replaced black ink cartridge, ink wont come out


If any of the ink cartridges need to be replaced the printer will not work. Also, if you are printing only black you will need to go into print properties and select black.

Try printing a rest page and if that doesn't print in black ink the printhead is probably blocked.

With some printers the printhead is part of the ink cartridge and such problems tend to disappear when the cartridge is replaced, unless the cartridge is faulty. Other printers use cartridges that are ink and nothing more and those are prone to the printheads drying out and becoming blocked unless they are never allowed to become completely empty of ink and are kept in frequent use.

Cleaning/replacing such a printhead usually needs special tools and experience and in the case of many cheap domestic printers the cost of service far outweighs the cost of replacement.

An E4 alert shows and says out of black ink but black ink is full.


the print head is not reading the cartridge. Either the print head or cartridge is bad.

try removing the cartridge and wiping the metal conector with a dry cloth and do the same to the print head.

if that doesnt fix it then replace the cartridge, do not refill it. If that doesnt fix it then the print head is bad and most likely it will be cheaper to replace the printer, unless you can do the work yourself.
