Without knowing what printer you have or what things you have tried I can only guess here. It sounds like you need a new cartridge. A color ink cartridge will have 3 colors of ink for most printers...cyan (blue), magenta (purplish-maroon), and yellow. Depending on what you print it is very possible that you could run out of one of the inks before the others. Printing green can be an indication that you are out of magenta ink. The cyan and yellow inks will combine and look green.

You can remove the cartridge and run a tissue over the printhead and see if you see all 3 colors as a quick test. If you only see cyan and yellow, then the magenta is probably empty or dried up. If you see all 3 colors I would reinsert the cartridge and try printing again. It is possible that the magenta was just clogged and you cleaned it with the tissue. If it still doesn't print all colors your best bet is probably to just get a new ink cartridge.

Photos are printing predominantly in yellow with most programs however microsoft office 2000 seems to work ok, i am running windows 7


In order to find the solution faster please try the computer hooked up to an alternate printer(take it to work and print there or a friends) OR get another computer and print to the printer. If the printer still prints out mostly yellow then their is a problem with the printer. If it prints out fine then we need to check the settings on your applications. Comment back and i will provide more help!

Brother MFC-6800 1. Prints with 3/8" blank vertical line down the entire page; 2. Prints with a couple of 1/16" blank vertical lines down the entire page; 3. Prints with some gray shadow...


This solution is unconventional but it worked for me. The black roller on my MFC had irregularities on it and was creating horrible printouts. I pulled out the drum and cartridge and cleaned the large black roller. I used furniture polish to make the roller very smooth. Now it prints really nice.

Color of pictures


image quality occuring after long period of inactivity of the printer oftenis caused by inks drying up or clogging either the nozzle or the channels of your printhead. to prevent this from happeniong, i suggest you do the maintenance first: deep clean and calibrate the printhead before you start using it if you havent used it for quite a while. you might be experiencing a printhead problem if the printer is printing predominantly in one color. you should try to visit thsi helpful website. the link ive provided below:

Xerox Phaser 8400N Printing Stripes


When you go into the eliminate light stripes there is also a mode called Jet Substitution. You can sometimes bypass the bad jets.
If that does not work then the print head will most likely need to be replaced.
You can replace the printer for less than the cost of a print head normally..
