Let's start by performing a nozzle check.
Load a single sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the rear tray.
Pull out the paper output tray, then open the output tray extension.
Hold down the Stop button until the Alarm lamp flashes once, then release it immediately.
The nozzle check pattern will be printed.
Do not perform any other operations until the machine completes the printing of the nozzle check pattern.
If the black grid pattern or any of the color blocks are broken or missing, futher cleanings may be required.

I was having a similar issue where it just was not printing black at all.
I went to printer properties and in the maintenance tab of the printer you can select deep cleaning and then I ran another nozzle check test page and the black ribbon showed up.

I ALSO HAVE THIS PROBLEM - IS IT A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THE Q3000?
I HAVE TRIED DEEP CLEANING MULTIPE TIMES BUT IT WILL STILL WILL NOT PRINT IN BLACK.
THE PRINTER IS LESS THAN YEAR OLD AND I HAVE ONLY USED HALF OF ONE BOTTLE OF INK.
I SUSPECT THAT THE NOZZLES ARE BLOCKED BUT CANNOT FIND HOW TO RESOLVE THE PROBLEM.
OS ANYBODY ABLE TO OFFER ADVISE?
