Changed black ink cartridge and still will not print black....colors do print except black


If you are using a refilled cartridge the contacts may no longer be good. They do wear out and every so often buy a new one and refill a few times before replacing again.

My hp Color Laserjet 3550 Printer wont print black when it is out of color ink


The 3550 won't print in any color if any of the colors are out. You'll have to replace the color ink that's empty to get it to print.

In the future, if you're just printing black and white, you can select "Print in Grayscale" from the print properties to just use the black ink cartridge, which will help the color cartridges to last longer.

I have a Lexmark Impact S305 about 2 months old. Will no longer print black. Cartridge shows half full and tried cleaning, aligning, etc. This is my third black cartridge - I have changed it thinking...


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink or toner cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridges that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks or toner causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead or photo conductors.
If you are using factory new ink or toner cartridges, then please call the manufacturer’s Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

My printer does the same thing. I changed the blank ink yesterday (the printer shows the black ink was low) however after trying and trying and not being able to complete the alignment I decided to change the color ink as well.
It worked. Printer works fine now. Sometimes the ink dries up and you have to change it even though you know it should last longer.
Give it a try and let me know.

Changed ink cartrigde and printer no longer printing.


microsoft logo is in colour and so its printing while everything else on test page is black so its not printing. the problem is common.you need to do automatic deep cleaning for the ink flow to start once you install new cartridges.go to printer maintanance option and click the option deep cleaning .it will pull out the ink in printer head and it will start working.sometimes also requires cleaning twice. thanks and do not forget to accept the solution.

Canon i250 won't print in black


I had this problem also. There were short-term solutions, but nothing worked for any length of time. In the end the only solution was to buy a new printer.

Epson have deliberately built obsolence into these printers. After a pre-determined number of prints, they just stop working. Clever fixes keep them limping on a bit longer, but eventually you have no alternative but to replace them. On principle, you should therefore replace your planned-obsolescence printer with a non-Epson machine. But then you'll be left with your stock of cheap Chinese printer cartridges!

In the 1960s Ralph Nader made his name as a consumer champion by campaigning against US car companies. They used to build in pre-programmed obsolence into your car so that after a certain amount of time you were forced to buy a new one. Just like Epson is doing today.

I just got off the HP help line.  After changing my black ink cartridge a test page was printing each time I turned the machine on.  This is very costly, in both time and ink as the cartridges themselves for this machine hold very little ink.  I tried to learn from HP tech how to turn off the test-print while keeping my color cartridge empty.  It turns out that you cant do it.  HP requires you to keep buying and using cartridges whether you need them or not.If you buy the color ink it will use it up in its testings.  And if you dont buy the color cartridge it will use up your black ink by printing the test each time you turn on the printer.  The printer was inexpensive sure, but I'm paying for it in wasted ink.
