    THE PRINTER HAS BEEN WORKING FINE FOR A FEW DAYS, I CAME TO USE IT ON FRIDAY, AND IM NOT GETTING ANY BLACK OUT, THE DAMPER SEEMS NOT TO BE GETTING ANY INK INTO IT, THERE IS PLENTY OF INK IN THE INK SUPPLY, I HAVE TRIED CLEANING IT, AND SENDING A FEW BLACK PAGES THROUGH, AND IT DOSENT EVEN ATTEMPT TO PRINT ANY?

    I HAVE ALSO TRIED PULLING SOME INK THROUGH THE INK LINES AND IT COMES THROUGH OK, AND I HAVE TRIED PULLING INK THROUGH THE WASTE PIPE, IT COMES THROUGH OK!!!

    ANY IDEAS ANYONE, OR EVEN ANYONE I COULD GET OUT TO IT,

    drain tubes come out of the capping station (that the head parks on) and into the waste tank

    You might have a leak in the K ink supply line. They wear out.

    If you have ink in the dampers and some missing nozzles it is time for a head soak.
