I cannot get it to print the black . It was instorage for about 12mths .. I put all new inks in and the colour works but cannot get it to print black ..It will copy in colour and a pale grey for the black .. Has this happened to anyone else . ?

First check the black cartridge is fully inserted properly and securely, then do some head cleaning. Failing that, either get a tech in or buy a new one. Lasers have less ink problems but cost more, though economically, they are far more efficient in the long run.

bad idea having a printer in 'storage' it's almost a certainty that the ink jets are blocked..........google how to unblock them for that make/model. failing that .....buy a new printer

it's an inkjet far as I can see and that being the case it's NOT worth getting a tech in to fix it you'd pay more than a new machine is worth
