While attempting to print a chart, I eventually ended up with nothing but background. Then when I tried it again, the printer went through all the motions but nothing appeared on the page. I checked the status monitor to confirm that I had ink and although the color inkjet registered as low, it didn't appear to be out. After making the situation worse, I finally uninstalled everything to do with the printer and re-installed. Now the status monitor showed that I was completely out of color. I had to wait until my replacement order was delivered. I went ahead and replaced both cartridges although the black showed as being 1/2 full. Printer once again goes through the motions, cartridge or inkject holder whatever the heck it is called, goes back and forth BUT IT IS A SHAM!!!! (last five words should be read in a high-pitched scream for accuracy). Now the status monitor shows the black cartridge is 1/2 full but it is brand new. And nothing is showing up on the page. Except for that lone tear drop as I lean over the printer. Any ideas on what I could check? Even if it includes prices for a replacement printer.
