Blue is made from magenta (pink) and cyan ( sky blue), if your blues are coming out pink then they are missing the cyan component.
In your machine this could be caused by a blockage in the printhead, the cyan cartridge being empty, an electronics fault, a boma pump fault (the squishy black thing on the base of the cartridge). Check your cartridge first - if it feels lighter than the other it is probably empty. Sometimes there is a fault where the entire contents of a cartridge (usually the cyan) can be emptied in a matter of days or less. If the cartridge is unusually empty compared to the other colours - refer it to HP.
I have personally encountered similar problem in my work. There is no problem with your printer, No need to go to your suppliers yet. Sometimes when either of the inks overflow at the nuzzle, it gets absorbed to an extent into another ink compartment. So that colour affected now prints another colour; the colour that has crept into its compartment, Sometimes it is serious at other times is not. If not serious, usually, after a few solid colour prints the colour affected returns to normal. I do not know how much of a technical person you are, but I will give you the solution to returning that yellow printing red back to printing truly yellow. Bring out your colour cartridge. Peel off the seal covering top. You will see the holes through which in is fed into it. Get a clean handkerchief, fold it and place over the top of the cartridge. Hold it over a bowl or something. Now place your mouth over the top with the handkerchief in between and blow hard. Ink will discharged at the nuzzle. Clean off the ink. (At the nuzzle do not rub only dab). Now press a piece of folded tissue to the nuzzle firmly. It should be blotted with ink:- red, blue, yellow. If any colour is missing you may need to repeat the procedure. Once you get the three colours back, the issue is resolved.
Wow, that's a really old EPSON printer. The life expectancy of a EPSON printer is just three years, after that, the printer wouldn't work because of the clogged permanent printing head. The authorized service center is unable to repair it because the spares are no longer supplied. Throw it to a recycling center.
Hello, this is Harry from www.BusinessSpread.co.uk.
We had the exact same problem when printing, we used 3 different 78 colour ink cartages and they all said 100% full but did not work. We then had a look at the dates on the box and they were all expired so when buying ink from anywhere even PC world or Curry’s always look at the expiry date.
Today I went to PC world and purchased a new 78 ink which said expires July 2011 and it works perfectly fine.
I can assure you that you got a bad colour ink cartridge. However, you may try this: get a small ply of tissue paper and place over the printing head, with your mouth and some good measure of pressure **** it. Repeat a couple of times and all the three colours: cyan, magenta, and blue will show up; otherwise replace immediately. Good luck
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.
ur printer prints in blues pinks n purple: its very simple :there r three prime colours in ur colour cartridge that forms all the other colour variation they are cyan, magenta n yellow. ur yellow colour in ur cartridge is either dried or empty thats the reason its not printing the colour variations which requires yellow. the solution is to either get ur colour cartridge refilled or replace ur colour cartridge. rate this solution as fixya n encourage us to help u solve ur problems in future too.thanks 4 using fixya.
