This seems to be a common problem on the 5100

Contact Kodak Support who will ask you to re-insert cartridge, Print Clean, Calibrate and run print test (press Photo & Copy together) then tell you that you need a new Print Cradle! Which they will supply FREE of Charge by overnight carrier.

HP All-In-One 4500 prints YELLOW when Black is SELECTED Could this be a PRINT HEAD PROBLEM?


Hi,
The inkjet printers print colors as they combine the major 4 colors contained in the cartridges CMYK (or said in words cyan, magenta, yellow and black) in some proportion.
If you print black the printer gets ink from the black cartridge only. If the black cartridge is empty some devices start to print black as a combination of the colors in the color cartridge - for example gets some of the cyan, gets some of the magenta, gets some of the yellow.
In your case maybe some of the other colors are empty too (or the nozzles are clogged) and the printer cannot prepare the correct mixture of colors to start printing black.
I suggest you to change both black and color cartridges.
Hope this helps.

I have a lexmark z2320 inkjet printer the colour cartridge is empty should it still print the black is full


I'm not a computer geek at all, but I find the color cartridges always run out first. Try to change your printer settings so it will only print in black and white and so uses the black cartridge and not the color one. If the the color cartridge is empty, the page will not print correctly. It may print some of the black color only.

Printer will not print dut to other color cartige. being empty.


The color cartridges print text that appears black by mixing the three primary colors (cyan, magenta, and yellow) to make composite black. To achieve a realistic black, large quantities of colored ink are used. Because black cartridges use much less ink to create a similar shade of black, they print more pages in black than the color cartridge.
If the color cartridges on the printer are next to empty, you will not be able to get perfect prints at all.

Please have the cartridges replaced to do the printing jobs again.

The color cartridge runs out very quickly even though I rarely use it. I make sure to print in black and white, and I manually choose the option "Use Black Cartridge only" but the color cartridge runs out...


Printer manufacturers design their printers to print some color mixed in with the black when you are only printing black. That is why your color cartridge is running out when you only print black and why it prints "weird colors" when the color cartridge is empty. Printer manufacturers sell the printers at a loss and make up the profit on the cartridges.

Pixma MP610 - fab machine - only problem is that the large of the black cartridges empties - never uses the smaller one (No 5) why? It refuses to print if the No 8 is empty. What do I need to do please?


The large of the black cartridge (5) is for ordinary paper in printing menu of computer. Selecting photo paper uses only the small black cartridge (8) and the color cartridges are used to make black even for gray black printing. Choosing ordinary paper, you can print in black 10 even 20 times with the large black cartridge (5) (by refilling and quoted as empty) . You simply need to press a long time the hold button, as explained in the manual on the printer CD, to continue to print with an empty cartridge. (at least in Europe)
The color cartridges are slightly used even when printing only in black and become empty, even if you never use the colors!
