Printer wont produce red on pictures


You need to take out red cart and pull off the tape. It's normally yellow but could be any color. Pull the plastic tape off, and put the cartridge back in, run a few head cleaning cycles and your ready to go.

All my picture from my Epson Picturemate personal photo printer are coming out pink. I have brought a new cartridge and it is still coming out pink. Why??


Hi!
You need to run a Head Cleaning cycle so printer can get rid of the old ink from your previous cartridge. Try running it from maintenance for at least twice or try printing pictures in between cleaning cycles.
Hope this helps.

You still have some clogged heads.Head cleaning once is sometimes not enough to clean your heads properly, especially if you are using 'compatible' ink cartridges. You need to clean your heads again, and possibly still again, until your test print pattern produces the correct colours.

My printer is printing in pink color how can i change it to black


Sounds like your black cartridge is either empty or clogged. Take out the black cartridge and press the print head against a moist paper towel. You should see a nice black rectangle, if you don't you could try placing the print head on a wet paper towel for a few minutes to wick out the ink (ink may seep through the paper towel so beware what surface you do this on). If after this there is still no ink flowing, buy a new cartridge.

My Dad's 3210xi all of a sudden prints pictures in blues & greens


Occasionally printer cartirdges can clog and become unusable after refilling them several times. Also, if a printer cartridge has been "dry" for a long period it may experience the same problem. Your best bet is to buy replacement cartridges for any colours that show problems on the test page. If there is a blue & green hue to your printing that would suggest that the magenta is not printing and should be replaced.

Everything prints pink! Head cleaning help on test page but next print was pink again.


I have a Canon S9000 and when this happened to me it was because the magenta or photo magenta cartridge leaked and spread. I had just refilled the cartridge and the plug didn't have a tight enough seal.
I took out the cartridges and used a Q-tip, OK, a TON of Q-tips, with the cleaner fluid from the refill kit on them and cleaned out the bottom of the holders where each cartridge fits.
I also had to do this to the ink ports of the cartridges themselves because they were tainted as well. I ran the head cleaning program a couple of times and once it was as good as it was going to get, I repeated the cleaning of the holders again, bought all new cartridges and ran the head cleaning program again until the problem was gone.

HP printer not printing true color all of a sudden.


Altho the cartridge is new, you may have used all of the ink of one color. Pictures take an enormous amount of ink to print and all three primary colors are used to create the hues and colors indicated on the picture. Try a new color cartridge and see if that works.

Pink bars across all pictures in document. Have deep cleaned the printer several times as well as print head alignment. Even changed the magenta cartridge. What should I try next? Thanks, Carol


I had this problem too. I don't know exactly what fixed it but it's working fine now. I removed all the cartridges and then put them back in, and ran through the nozzle check & clean cycle a few times. Now it's printing beautifully.

Good luck!
