Is your default set for black?. Check in printer setup then options then document/quality and make sure it's set for automatic.

It's my wife who has the X73,we found that removing the electric and USB cables and reconnecting same cures some faults. If that doesn't do any good you could try above and also remove printer software and reinstall printer as per manufactures instructions. Sorry I can't suggest anything else but now this thread will be bumpted up where someone else may be able to help you.

When a car doesn't start, they say check the petrol.
Did you remove the tape covering the nozzles of the new cartridge???
It could be something as simple as that.

Can you print a test page as suggested in the Solution Centre???

yeah checked the tape isnt on the print head, and no i can only print the black portion of the test page but thanks wak

Try standing the cartridge on a damp paper tissue and see if you get any ink flow at all soaking into the tissue. If you do, it's a printer problem. If you don't, it's a cartridge problem.
See how you go.

yeah cartridge is fine any ideas how much a service costs for the bloody thing???
