The black is not printing dark enough. It shows it

The black is not printing dark enough. The cartridges show half full. I tried to print out an e-mail a few days ago and I couldn't even read it. I don't use it very often but even so, it used to print darker

In my pixma ip2772,when I print photo then black colors are printing properly but when I print any types of documents then my black color is not working.It's not showing dark.What can I do?


This printer has a separate cartridge for black and colour. When you print pictures, the printer uses all three colours mixed together to make black and does not use the black cartridge. Your black cartridge may be empty or the printhead may just be dried out. Try a head-clean from the maintenance menu and then print a nozzle test. If still no result then try replacing the black cartridge with a new one which has a new printhead as part of the cartridge.

Dell 962 printer showing an error message "right cartridge incorrect". It printed from that cartridge for the past few months. Now nothing. I had to take it out to get the printer to print at all. Now only...


If this is a Dell 093-962 try the following -
  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Reseat the toner mentioned in the error. For instruction on toner removal and installation for your specific system please check the User Guide.
  3. Once toner is re-seated, power the printer back on and check for error.
  4. If no error reported try printing a Settings page.
    • Press the Menu Button on the printer.
    • Highlight Reports/List and Select.
    • Highlight System Settings or Printer Settings (depending on your specific printer model) and Select.
    • The Report should now Print.
  5. If the 093-862 error recurs please try another toner from a working Dell Laser Printer of the same model or from stock (If available).
  6. If the error recurs with a working or 2nd toner please confirm that the Toners used are Dell Branded.
  7. If non Dell toners are used please ensure that you have the 'Non Dell Toner' option turned on.
    • Press the Menu or Info button on the Printer Operating Panel.
    • Scroll down until Admin Menu is Displayed and Select (If there is no admin menu go to next step).
    • Scroll down to Maintenance and Select.
    • Scroll down to Non Dell Toner and Select to turn it on.
    • Re-start Printer for the setting to take effect.
    • Detailed instruction for turning on the 'Non Dell Toner' option for a specific model can be found on your systems User Guide.
  8. If toners are Dell branded and error recurs please contact Dell Technical Support for further advice.

Hi Sobek70,

Please check if the cartridge is not dried out.

It will get dried out if you have not used that cartridge for certain period of time.

Try to replace the color Cartridge.

Using Canon iP4600, I'm trying to print a black-and-white photo with a black background and a half-tone image in the front, but I keep getting purplish and black stripes instead of an all black background....


Hi there

Sometimes, printers use colors from the other cartridges in order to form a deep black colour. It does seem that not enough pure black ink is getting onto the paper.

Can you check that there is enough black ink remaining? If so, go to the print options of the program from which you are trying to printer the image, and set the colour output to black or greyscale only. This may be within an option called Printer Preferences from the Print dialogue window of the program from which you are printing from.

Then, print an image as a test and see if it comes out in black only this time.

I look forward to your reply.

Regards

Hp 2600n will not accept print jobs. Color cartridges show empty. black shows half full. Printing of a test page produces a great test page quality


I have two problems. Either it won't accept a print job or when it is printing it stops when it is going through the job intermittently. Like for an hour it won't continue then all of a sudden it prints one page then a half hour later another page etc. It is so frustrating.

Won't print in black


open your list of printers. r/click on the 780 and open properties. fo to the last tab "maintenance" and run cleaning 2 or 3 times then run deep cleaning 2 or 3 times. and see how this helps. If you've never done it before you might want to take out the print head and clean it with alcohol. Take out all the ink like you were changing them then reach in and gently pull out the container that holds the ink. This is the print head. Clean it and replace it, then run clean and deep clean again. run Nozzle check to see how clean it's become and you'll definetly see a difference in your printing. good luck
