    I've also tried replacing both Black ink cartridges, but it is still not printing black. Cleaning and deep cleaning hasn't helped either.

    My printer won't print black either. Both cartridges are full. I've cleaned and deep cleaned the nozzles. I've uninstalled my printer and drivers and reinstalled. I've rebooted. Graphics print fine unless it includes black.

I gave up on the mp600 and went and bought a new mp610 so I can use up my old cartridges on it. I tried the mp600 printhead in the new one too but it reports a different type. I consider it to be a board problem as it prints the dark cyan but not the light cyan from the same cartridge and no yellow at all. These printers are great but if they give problems and the problem is not obvious, replacement is the cheapest option. There is a lot of hobby type motors and other interesting things inside to make pulling the old one apart interesting too so all is not lost. Part of the replacement rationale was the new cartridge set that comes with the new one - $65 worth as part of the new printer cost of $178 so $113 of repairs would cover a new one. If anyone wants a low cost B&W multifunction (or limited colour) reply.
Thanks for all comments/suggestions.

I would say to buy your self a new printhead, it could well be blocked,

as the worst case it could need printhead and logic board, but is hard to say with out being at the machine.

I would order a new printhead and see if that cures the fault.

Why won't a new tri-color cartridge print red?


Tri color cartridge contains Cyan,Magenta & Yellow color inks, mono cartridge contain black ink, combination/mixing with these inks desired color out put will prints on paper.. If any one or more inks are missing/dried, result mis matched print outs on paper.
In your case I feel it's Magenta ink is not firing..,nozzles may clogged, try to clean the nozzles with solvents & try it...If no result ,. replace the color cartridge..

Wrong Color Printing


Hi,
Type "print nozzle test" in the search box and click Search. Perform a nozzle test, and if the colors match what are on the instructions, your print head and inks are OK.

(1) If the print head and inks check out OK, type "wrong colors on print" in the search box, and you will see several troubleshooting steps you can try.

(2) If the nozzle test colors are off, confirm that you are using BCI-6 inks for all three colors and the small black tank. You should only have a BCI-3 tank in the large black position. If you have all the correct inks, your machine probably needs to be serviced/ repaired.

Thank

HP Officejet 6310 will not print cyan


The Cyan print head nozzle maybe blocked.
If deep cleaning does not fix it then you need a new print head.
The cost of a new print head is expensive and it maybe better to get a new printer.

The print head is clogged.Try unclogging with cleaning tests in maintenance mode.If not help you can try unclogging manually.Warning!!!This can lead to damage of print head.Try it in last case.Open the cover and first remove the ink cartridges.Then open the holder and remove the print head.Run hot tap water and put the print head with the nozzles up to stream water.Hold that 5 mins then turn the print head around with the nozzles down.Hold that for every color of 5 mins.Then put the print head in hot water with the nozzles down.Left
it water about 15 mins and then you must very nice to dry.When the print head dry put it in printer and start cleaning.If this not help you need to replace the print head.Call Canon for support.

When i print the ink is so light it looks like a blank sheet


get some paper towels and boil some water put in in an old coffee cup. hold the ink cartridges over the water (not in) the steam will clean out the nozzles on the cartridges. the ink will run a lil bit (hence the paper towels) give the printing a go again.

hope this helps..

Print is not clear , when we are printing light print is coming, we have already changed the cartridge but the problem is still there


You need to see if the problem is coming from all of the colors or just one. You can print an internal test sheet or just print something with cyan, magenta, yellow and black to see if one or all of them are faded.
If all of the colors are faded and you have already replaced the cartridges then check the fuser unit. It is possible that the toner isn't fusing properly.

Magenta printing as yellow


Well, first off, are the alignment, and nozzle check sheets looking good? If not, then work on that. If so, then we have a problem. Try creating a test sheet in Word. Make red, yellow blue & black text and see if anything else prints wrong. Get back to me!
