Printer has full ink levels, but won’t print black.

My printer’s connections to my device and WiFi is good, the ink levels are full, and the cartridges are perfectly in place; yet, it won’t print black ink no matter how many times I print a job out.  What do I do?

Please try to remove the cartridges from the printer then follow these steps to perform a hard reset on the printer,

  • Press the Power button to turn on the product,
  • With the product turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the product,
  • Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet,
  • Wait at least 15 seconds,
  • Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet,
  • Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the product,
  • If the product does not turn on by itself, press the power button to turn it on,
  • Printer comes back on and asks for the cartridges, then go ahead and put them back in.

Regards.

Thank you for your help, though I managed to figure out the problem before you replied.  Turns out, as I hadn’t used the printer in over a year, the cartridge had almost completely dried out.  Cleaning it with cotton swabs several times helped, but didn’t yield the results I desired.  I have since ordered a new cartridge, and it will be in today.
