My printer will not print black ink on the page. Print test shows a white space in the black ink area. I have tried installing new cartridges, cleaning contacts, reseting printer, unpluging power etc. Nothing works. This printer is only a year and a half old. Any suggestions? It is obviously out of warranty. I am completely disgusted.
Please note: There are three printhead cleaning stages. Complete all three stages if necessary. If the printhead is badly clogged, it might require another cleaning cycle. If so, wait 30 minutes after the last (third) cleaning stage to start the first stage of the cleaning process over again.
If you are still unable to print in black ink, I suspect the issue may be the printer and not the cartridge. I highly recommend you call our technical support at 800-474-6836, I trust they will be able to assist you regardless of the warranty status.
