Why does my Yellow ink print with a deep green tint on my Epson R220?


The symptoms point to some kind of contamination between the cyan and yellow. Most likely is that the yellow nozzles are picking up a small amount of cyan in the cleaning/resting pad when the printer is waiting to print... it's also possible the printhead has started failing and is allowing ink to mix somewhere before the nozzles...

The former is more likely however, especially if you are able to print a few pages of yellow where the greenish tint/lines fade out to become pure yellow.. but then re-appear after the printhead has rested.


Causes of this problem tend to be a backed up waste ink tube or failed pump.. Again it's more likely the former, especially if you've been resetting the waste ink counter and ignoring pad replacement or redirection of the waste ink.

Simplest solution is to locate the waste ink tube (accessible via the access hatch in the back of the printer) and then flush the tube through using a syringe of warm water (don't use excess pressure). Then fit an external waste tank so that the pad ink doesn't back up again (and solve the waste ink issue at the same time).

Obviously if the printhead or waste pump are failing then you have no other options beyond a new printhead, reconditioned model or new printer.

Hope that helps...

CANON PIXMA IP2000 STOPPED PRINTING YELLOW A FEW MONTHS AGO. WE'VE CHANGED INK CARTRIDGES MANY TIMES, BUT CAN'T GET YELLOW TO PRINT. HOW DO WE REMOVE THE PRINTHEAD SO WE CAN TRY TO FLUSH IT OUT WITH HOT...


OK, since nobody answered my plea for help, I merely opened the Canon monster and yanked out the printhead after lifting up the level. (WHAT was so hard about that, that nobody could explain it here?!)
Cleaned printhead using warm water & ice-cube tray & paper towes. Just let it soak all the excess ink out for a while, then allowed it to dry.
Changed cartridges, put new color cartridge in...
THE DAMNED THING STILL WON'T PRINT YELLOW (altho it will print a faint hint of yellow). WHY IS IT DOING THIS? Why is Canon making this a common problem in the first place, rather than producing a product that is reliable and easy to maintain?

My printer is not printing with all of the colors and there is banding, brand new ink and printheads changed in the last 6 months.


I'm having a simialr problem, I can get my Kodak EasyShare 5300 printer to print pictures just fine, I can even get it to copy & print from the scanner. In both black and color inks. What I can not get the Kodak EasyShare 5300 Printer to do is to print from Microsoft Office Word, or Works for that matter any text document what so ever. I've never had a problem with the printer ever, not even when I upgraded to Windows 7 it printed just fine up till a few months ago and started acting up. At first I thought it was because I hadn't used it in awhile so I replaced both cartridges so they are brand new. Tried my experiment again and it did the same thing, pictures, and copy and print from the printer works just great...text however from the Word programs....nothing but a blank page.

Running Windows 7 - 64 bit Dell Touchscreen, Dual Core Processor. Before you ask...before this incident the Kodak Printer intergraded just fine and worked without incident. Since it is not the printer portion (unless its the printhead), it has to be a software problem...although, I used the disk that came with the printer to re-install it and not from the web just in case that was the problem. Course would installing the web upgraded software be of any assistance? Anyone have any solutions? Thanks.

Main black print(BCI-3eBK)seems clogged and nozzle check shows only partial pattern. The cartridge seemed to be stuck to the print head. This happened before about two months ago. My technician cleaned it....


Sounds like you need a new printhead, and the only thing you need for cleaning is a damp cloth. All the Canon inks are water soluable. The printheads don't clean very well and don't last long if you do clean them.

Color is all wrong


Your pictures are coming out with a blue tint. Remove the color catridge and look at the bottom of it. the Yellow is probably green. If it isn't, trying performing a printhead cleaning through your home center. After that, calibrate the printer, you may see that on the calibration sheet, that colors are missing. Scan the calibration page and then try your printing your pictures. If that doesn't work, contact kodak tech support, you need a new printhead.
