Your printer tries to estimate how many pages you have left but sometimes does a terrible job of doing so. You may have printed your "100 pages remaining" by printing one photo. Generally page estimates are based on 5% page coverage. I would trust your printer that it is actually out of ink.

- I have just changed the black ink and now it wont print so I have changed the black ink again and it still wont print anything black - any ideas


The black ink nozzle in the print head might be blocked. Print a test page with a huge black image. Like: just start word, create a square through "illustrations" and fill it completely with black. Print it once or twice and see if finally the black ink may come out.

Through printer properties (windows control panel) there might be additional cleaning options.

I have enough black ink to print a few pages in black, but the printer won't print. What do I do?


I had a Epson printer that would not print or even allow me to use the scanner because the colored ink was out. Even though I had full black ink, it still would not let me print until i replaced the colored ink.

  3. Expand the arrow pointing down beside printer name if you're not able to see other options for printing. Look for Quality and Media in a drop down box and select print in black and white.

If you wish to set this as your default print setting, please follow steps below:
For Windows:
  1. Go to Control Panel.
  2. Open Printers and Faxes.
  3. Right-click on Lexmark S300 Series print object and click on Properties.

  4. Save this as your default print setting. Click Presets option and choose Save as. You can personalize the name for this default print setting (e.g. Black and White Draft or My Setting).

Select this Preset name every time you print your files/documents.
Note: The 100 standard cartridges yield around 175 ISO Pages. You can also save on ink and stretch your ink investment if you use only 100XL high yield cartridges. These contain almost 3x as much ink as a standard cartridge for a small increment in price.

Does not print dark enough to read. Changed toner and adjusted print darkness feature. Still does not work. Any idea what to do?


Hi

When printing, just adjust the PRINT QUALITY to PHOTO because I believe your print quality is set to TEXT. I am sure it will print move darker than before.

I hope it helps you solve your problem.

Brother 420CN printer will not print black ink. Have replaced the cartridge and after several cleaning cycles, it still will not print properly. Test Print shows colors are fine but black ink is hit and...


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

I hva black ink in my printer but the colour ink has run out. I only want to print in black but it wont work


Too often the printers must have ink in all cartridges, or they won't print at all. Having black ink is not enough; you need to replace the color cartridge(s) to get your printer to work again.

I put new ink in my hp F4280 printer and I printed about 100 sheets and my light turned orange and it started printing slow. Can you tell does it need new ink already?


The ink level indicator is only an estimate. See page 72 of the user manual which you can obtain here: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01374711.pdf
The HP 60 holds enough ink to print approximately 200 pgs. By the way, it also can evaporate from the cartridge quickly too so try to keep a refill kit or new cartridge on hand.

Black will not print properly


your cartridge is about 100 pages of ink. Try to buy #16 black and #26 color for best results and economy, since #16 have about 250 pages resource.

Service error 5600 appeared when the printer stop


Dear budg,
Error code 5600 in S200 is No Print head Error indicator. In this case, the print head of the printer is faulty so that the printer cannot detect the print head. About the print out, please check if there is enough ink in ink tank to print. If there is enough ink to print, means this bad print out caused by the faulty print head. It seems that you to replace the print head.

RX500 EPSOM STYLUS PHOTO PRINTER Won't Print


I used some less expensive generic ink cartridges on my RX500 and had a similar experience with the black. If you're already using the Epson brand, done the head cleaning, realignment and nozzel checks, I'm not much help. Try Epson's support at their web site.
