Customer Question
My new E575w printer...

My new E575w printer used up all the cyan ink, even though I only printed in black. Now it won't print in black and is asking for another cyan cartridge. Is there a way to get it to print in black? I don't need cyan.

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried running your printer's self-cleaning cycle? (Sometimes you have to run this several times to see results.)

No. Nothing told me I need to run a self-cleaning cycle, nor how to do it. I need instructions

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried wiping down the metal contacts on your printer and cartridges?

I just wiped the metal contacts on the printer and cartridges with a soft new sheet of Kleenex. No change (the contacts were working fine until the cyan cartridge ran out, so I guess that was a desperation ploy). The printer does some other weird things like not recognizing paper sizes without a manual reset every time and defaulting back to letter size surprisingly fast when I am printing legal size papers. If I correct the cyan cartridge disable, will I be able to disable the automatic default so as to leave the printer ready to print the last size paper being used?

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

That's all I have for now.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

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
