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..

Printer will not print yellow or orange, but prints other colors correctly. Brand new lexmark cartridge.


> will not print yellow or orange

Yellow is one of the printer's "primary" colours.
Orange is mix of "red" and "yellow".

So, an empty "yellow" cartridge, or clogged ink-jets would cause your symptoms.

HP5550 printer is printing everything in green. We have true HP cartridges


So, your "blue" and "yellow" ink-cartridges are OK, and are mixing to produce "green".

But, either your "red" ink-cartridge is empty, or the ink-jets that shoot that colour onto the paper are BLOCKED.

Run a print-head-cleaning-cycle, using the HP Support Tools that were installed from the HP CD-ROM, and then, if necessary, replace/refill the "red" cartridge.

Printing yellow instead of red or orange


Hi Friend,

Firstly clean the head of cartridge & printer.if you have cleaned the head, that's the best way to get the color out.... did you also clean the head on the cartridge holder where you insert the cartridges?
If you useing Refill kits (cartrige) please replace it with a NEW one printer cartridge becouse refill cartridge is not every time good.

Thanks,

New cartridge but copier not printing


Did you pull out the orange/red tape?

Check if there is an good connection between cartridge and pin at the right side of crg. inside crg.holder( a little pin wich goes in and out when you open or close cover )

Try with old crg. if it works the problem is new crg.

Canon MP 730 prints wrong color tones


I was having a similar problem-- what was happening was the print cartridge head seemed to be letting the colors leak into each other. (the science behind this is beyond me!)-- I noticed that instead of being cyan/magenta/yellow, my yellow cartridge had actually turned green, magenta was picking up blue and was turning purple, etc etc. I ended up replacing the printer's printhead and all the color cartridges and then it worked.
You can order printheads online.
Not sure if this fixes the original reason why they got all mixed up in the first place-- if the printer will continue to allow the print head to leak the colors into each other-- but hopefully that's a fixit!
