Remove all cartridges, clean the ink from where the cartridges make contact with cloth,(paper towels can leave trash in there) be sure all is clean then replace the cartridges and print something. Those streaks shouldn't be there any longer.

The magenta cartridge isn't working correctly. This is why you're only getting the other colors (blue is cyan, green is cyan and yellow, and then yellow).

Try removing and reseating the magenta cartridge. If that doesn't work, use a new magenta cartridge (the cartridge itself may have been defective).

I wasn't able to view a manual for this machine, as it's been discontinued and Lexmark no longer offers the PDF on it. If you have a "clean print heads" option, use it. It may require more than one try. If you don't have that option, then all possibilities have been covered.

Hope that's helpful.

Magenta in tricolor not flowing


unplug printer cables, replug in
take cartridges out, put back in making sure sure nothing is obstructing the ink dispensary on the cartridges and that they're clean
look in the printer where the cartridges go, making sure nothing is blocking the ink
check the rollers to make sure no paper is caught inside the printer
turn on printer and try this
hope this works and good luck

Canon Pixma yellow color problem


Either the ink you are using is not going to give the color you want, or you have print heads that are blocked.

One of the 3 colors will not print


This problem may be due to blocked nozzles, faulty cartridges or a faulty print head or main board. The first thing to do is eliminate the cartridges. Do a proper cartridge change on both printers, but swap the yellow and cyan (blue) cartridges between printers rather than fit new ones. If either (or both) of the missing colours now appear, you know the problem is the cartridges; replace it (or them) with new ones.

For example, take printer A, with yellow missing. Do a cartridge change procedure on printer A, but instead of fitting a new yellow cartridge, put in the yellow cartridge from printer B (since you know this yellow cartridge works). If yellow now prints in printer A, you know the cartridge you took out is faulty - put a new yellow in printer B, and throw away the cartridge you removed from printer A. Repeat this process for printer B with the Cyan cartridge.

For one or both printers where the above does not solve the problem, then you can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head across fully into its parking position on the right, so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then try a head clean or two. If the missing colours now start to appear, try another clean or two. If still not perfect, leave for 24 hours and try again. If still nothing, report back.

Despite installing new cartridges,cleaning and priming, my HP Deskjet 710C prints pink only. Using Windows XP test page shows no blue, or yellow.


hi,
do you installing both cartridges (black and colour)?
if you do so, my advice is to reinstall the driver for your printer.

if you install ONLY the black cartridge, and the color cartridge remain the old one, (which in my opinion is the present case), your problem is from the color cartridge.
The color cartridge have 3 colors and this are: cyan (some kind of blue), yellow and magenta (similar with a pink color, but more intense). The problem is simple: in your color cartridge has left only the magenta color, cyan and yellow tanks are empty.

have 2 options:
1. buy a new color cartridge
2. refill the color cartridge.
