Expert:  Luis Giraldo - Monkey Mac replied 5 years ago.
Please try resetting your printing system, and re-adding the printer:

Also power cycle (turn off/on) your printer and ensure the cable is properly connected.

Let me know if that works.

Regards,

Luis

Expert:  Luis Giraldo - Monkey Mac replied 5 years ago.
Resetting the printing system is not the same as re-installing the printer software/drivers.

Does the printer work when printing other types of documents?

Does the printer work when printing anything from any other software?

Does your printer have enough ink in it?

Regards,

Luis
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
its not printing anything that needs black so i guess it is a black cartridge problem but normally the printer tells me when the cartridge is low.
Expert:  Luis Giraldo - Monkey Mac replied 5 years ago.
I would definitely try replacing the black ink cartridge. Especially if there are other colours that print OK.

If you are using non-HP or re-filled catridges, these will not communicate status level information properly with the printer subsystem, causing the printer to NOT warn you of low ink levels.

Also, if the printer hasn't been used in a while, it's possible the black ink has slightly "dried up" in the nozzle area, preventing it from printing. You may also wan to run the printer utilities for cleaning the nozzles. You may need to connect the printer directly via USB for this process to complete reliably, and for your computer to obtain printer status information properly.

Warmest Regards,

Luis

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
