Operating System Version:Windows XP
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Dell Photo printer 720
Error Messages:

Just bought an ink replacement kit for the cartridges I have (Dell's Replacement prices are ridiculous!). Filled both Black and color cartridges as per instructions. When I try to print, the color ink runs beautifully (red, yellow, and magenta), but there is no black (actually it is so light as to be nearly invisible).
I ran the cleaning cycle a few times without change. Any suggestions. I REALLY don't want to shell out another $25-30 on a new cartridge.Huh?

Pull the Black Ink Cartridge out and with a cloth wipe the print nozzles at the the bottom of the Cartridge...
Also using a long Q-Tip...clean the nozzle contacts in the Cartridge Carriage..

Then run the TEST PRINT page a couple times till it prints ok.

Let us know...
