I have a Stylus CX5400 and can't get black to print without mixing blue into it. Tried new cartridges, same effect. On a text document the same lines turn blue everytime I print, the rest prints black. Any input Thanks

You may have a leaky blue (cyan) cartridge that has polluted the black output.Well worth checking the inside of the printhead (where the cartridges are located) and see if there's a build up of ink.Also, well worth checking that you haven't received an incorrectly marked cartridge that contains cyan instead of black ink.May not be the direct solution but it will certainly help isolate a few possible causes.Hope it helps.Martin
