For several weeks now, I have been unable to get the printer to use the black ink completely when printing. The alignment, cleaning, and bleeding of the cartridges, hoses, etc. have been unsuccessful for me. The rest of the cartridges run into the same situation, when the printer has not been used for a few days, then we can see the hoses half way empty, but once the tank plugs are opened the hose fill up again, however, the black one does not feed the tank. I cannot find what seems to be the problem. Reports only display color print.

Hello,

If you are using a CISS system you would be able to prime the cartridge. If one or two deep cleanings does not improve the quality issue we would recommend a priming of the cartridges.

Try this particular step to see if it will improve the quality issue.
