Photosmart B8550 color inks running low after printing only 1 or 2 4X6 prints. Also, have refilled cartridges, and black is coming out blue. I'm using a MacBook Pro OSX 8.6. I have set the print...


BETTER SOLUTION IS IF YOU TAKE MORE PHOTOS I SUGGEST YOU BUY ORGIINAL INK CARTRIDGES.THEN YOU CAN DO ONE TIME REFILLING.ITS OK.

AGAIN IF YOU TRY REFILL SAME CARTRIDGE MAY LOSS YOUR PAGE YEILD. IF U WANT USE REFILLED CARTRIDGES AGAIN BUY VIRGIN CARTRIDGE FROM REFILL STORE AND MAKE REFILL. OTHERWISE INK WILL FINISH SOON.

FOR BLACK INK U SHOULD REFILL OR BUY NEW ONE NOW. BECOS BLACK INK FINISHED ALREADY. THATS WHY YOU GETTING BLUE PRINTING....OOOOOOOOOK DEAR...

Why are there lines through my image?


I believe there are lines on inkjet printing because your ink supply is running out.

Did you installed new cartridges OEM, refilled cartridges?

If the image of the printing looks blurry then you will need head alignments, which is usually done directly from printer provided software or from the printer menu.

I wish I helped you.

Why can't I print black and white, without colored ink?


I have the same problem & have been searching for weeks for a replacement printer that will print B & W with one or more colors empty. I haven't had any luck yet - I did run across a post that said: For black and white images and photos, a blend of colors called "composite black" may be used to achieve significantly better image quality and smoother gray tones than can be accomplished with black inks alone. I'm still searching...

Replaced ink cartridge still shows ink low needs to be replaced but is printing? Can it be reset?


  1. Remove your current empty cartridge from your Dell printer. Turn on your printer and lift the cover and top half of the unit. You can suspend it in place by lifting the blue plastic lever and securing it to hold up the top of the printer. At this point the ink cartridges should move to the center of the printer and be easy to access. Follow the instructions locate on your printer to remove the cartridges. You can do this by pressing on the blue tab to remove the colored cartridge or the black tab to remove the black cartridge. Once you press the tab, the cartridge cover will pop open. Carefully pull out the exposed cartridge from it’s setting. Save the empty cartridge so it can be refilled.
    Remove the sticker from the newly refilled Dell ink cartridge. Follow the directions on the opened printer to insert the cartridge. Hold the cartridge so the writing is on the top and the ink spot is on the bottom. Gently push it into the opened setting until it is securely in place. Close the cover of the cartridge holder by pressing down on it gently until it clicks into place. Remember that the black cartridge goes into the black setting and the color cartridge goes into the blue setting. Close the top of the printer. You will hear the ink cartridges move back into place.
  2. Test your newly refilled Dell ink cartridge and load your printer with paper.Print a document so either in color or black and white (depending on the type of cartridge you had refilled). Review your printed document to make sure the color is consistent and you are pleased with the outcome.
    Repeat whenever you run out of ink.

How to chang ink


Hello,

When it is time to replace an ink cartridge in your HP inkjet printer, you will receive a pop up message on your computer screen. Replacing an ink cartridge is just part of owning an inkjet printer, and a tradeoff with the high quality imaging you are able to achieve on an HP inkjet. It is not something a professional needs to do; just follow these simple instructions to complete the change and get right back to printing.

  1. Allow your inkjet printer to run entirely out of ink. Unless the quality of your images is suffering, there is no problem with letting your ink run low.
  2. Open the printer door. It should fold from the top down toward the tray. When it is open, it should expose the inner workings of the printer.
  3. Press the change cartridge button. It is at the top of the printer next to the power button.
  4. Pull on the green top of the inkjet ink cartridge and remove it up and out of its holder. Do this gently so the printer is not damaged in the process.
  5. Recycle the empty inkjet cartridge or have it refilled at an ink refilling center.
  6. Carefully remove the tape from the refilled or new inkjet ink cartridge and insert the cartridge in the same orientation as the one you removed.
  7. Push on the green top until the cartridge snaps into place, press the cartridge change button and close the printer door.
Good luck.

How do i refill the # 96 & 97 ink cartridges


Hello!
To refill your cartridges, you will need a syringe, a needle, ink of course, some toilet paper or tissue and gloves (recommended!).
Turn the printer on, open the cover and remove the cartridges from the printer.

1. BLACK CARTRIDGE:

  • Peel off the top label- you should see several holes.
  • Fill the syringe with 10-15ml. of black ink.
  • Slowly inject ink in any of the holes (the best way is to pour a bit in each hole, so the sponge inside can absorb more ink)
  • If any ink starts coming out from the refill holes, remove 1 or 2ml of ink.
  • Also, always check if there is ink leaking from the print head (The nozzle or print head is the porous metal piece at the bottom of the cartridge). If there is, simply remove some ink.
  • Gently wipe the electric contacts on your cartridge.
2. COLOR CARTRIDGE:
  • Peel off the top label.
  • You will see 5 holes. The one on the top is for yellow. The two holes on the left are for magenta (red), and the ones on the right are for cyan (blue). Here is a picture:
cad76cd.jpg

  • Slowly pour 3-5ml. of each color in the appropriate hole.
  • If ink starts leaking, either from the refill hole or the print head, remove 1-2ml of ink.
  • Gently wipe the contacts on the cartridge.
A few tips:
  • Always make sure that you do not insert air along with the ink, because there will be white streaks on your printouts.
  • Once you have refilled your cartridges, your printer will give you a "low ink" message, which is normal, because the printer can't know that someone has refilled the cartridges. The printer "sees" your cartridges by their serial number, and the ink level will show again once you put in a new cartridge. I suggest you just ignore the message (the estimated ink level is never right anyway), and always look at your printouts- if the colors are faded, or one of the colors is missing, that is a sign that you should refill your cartridges again.
  • Also, if you haven't been printing regularly (at least once a week), the print quality might be poor. You can do a software print head cleaning:
  1. Press the "setup" button on your printer.
  2. Use the arrow keys to select "Tools", then press the ok button.
  3. Select "Clean Print Cartridge", then press ok.
  4. Your printer will then print a test page, which you should examine. If the print quality is good, you're good to go.
  5. If the problem is still there, open the "printer toolbox":
-On your computer, open the Control Panel
-Double click on "Printers and Faxes".
-Right click your printer icon and select "Properties".
-Click on "Printing preferences".
-Click the "Services" tab.
-Then, click on "Service this device" icon.
-The printer toolbox opens.
-On the "Device Services" tab.
-Click on "Clean the print cartridges", then follow the on-screen instructions. (there are three levels of cleaning available). Just bear in mind that software cleaning uses a lot of your ink!


You can also try cleaning the cartridge yourself:
  • Place the clogged nozzles in warm water and soak them until the dried ink begins to flow from the nozzle.
  • After a few minutes of letting the dried ink flow, remove the nozzles from the water and dry it with a soft tissue.

  • If that doesn't help, you might have some air left in your cartridge: try inserting air in the syringe and blow it in one of the refill holes (close the other ones with your fingers). A small amount of ink should be emitted from the nozzles upon injection.
  • Clean the print head and the contacts on your cartridge and pop them back in the printer.
Hope that will help!

After every line of black text there is a light blue line.


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc. These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Uneven printing]


Your cartridge is not able to supply that density of ink for that number of lines of solid color.

Could be any of the following:
1. Dirt in the cartridge
2. Low ink level
3. Bad ink in a refilled cartridge

Solution:
1. Print 1 copy in "draft" mode to see if cartridge can keep up. If so, it is simply ink supply... Replace cartridge, refill cartridge.

2. Run the "Clean" maintenance routine before trying to print a strong demand image.

3. Replace the printer for a quality image device (laser is best, all others are less). Good quality HP is better in inkjets. Decent Lexmark is fair - but VERY expensive to own/run/maintain. Kodak is cheap enough to buy and keep filled. Reliability is a potential problem...

Hope this provides some useable insight. -Jim

Extreme color lines in all printing: text and images. the printer has never been great at printing images but has now started to print with bright color lines through any print job.
