    Thank you Guru.
    How can I find out if the scans I am trying to print are good? They look alright on preview, just as I want them to come out with the right colours, but as soon as they are printed the colour comes out pale and wrong. That's why I have replaced both colour and black & white cartridges with no luck.

    Try uninstalling the printer.  reboot and reinstall the printer from a new set of drivers.  do not use the one's that are already on the machine.

Get the esp 2170 to not print light green instead of black ? I keep on replacing cartridge , to no avail !


replacing a cartridge, while the nozzles are blocked won't help.
Realise the printer will mix there colours to get "black" on the paper. So even a full cartridge, can't make the other colours black till the blockage is gone.

Please try this. If you have ink cleaning fluid, (only for printer ink) use that, if you dont have cleaning fluid, use clean water.
Open the printer as if you replace a cartridge. Remove the black one and look tot the bottom of the cartridge holder. There is a little pipe, where the ink should go in. put some drops water or cleaning fluid in there leave it a few minutes. with a tissue dry it and again insert some drops of water or cleaning fluid. Then put in a cartridge and give the printer a black and white print job. Like print a few A4 papers. Let it print till the black comes back. Can take up to 4 pages A4. I hope this will unblock the nozzles.
Please even if you don't need to print, switch the printer on at least once a week. And even better, let it do a bit of printing every week. This will save a lot of frustration.

Printer will only print purple


on a colour printer, black is mixed with the other colours. Try printing a black and withe photo and you always get a colour cast. If your black cartridge is empty or the nozzles are blocked, you get bad colour and fussy prints.
test all nozzles, like is explained in the manual.
Check, if you know how to do, if nothing fell in the printer, that is now on the print head. Sometimes just dust or paper scraps are picked up by the printhead, making it difficult for the printer to print a normal page.

Replaced cartridges


keep cleaning untill it starts to print clearly, you may reuse the same paper for that purpose, if you don't see any progress after 10 cleans, consider getting lasser printers, they are immune to print head drying and save alot of money on ink replacements. go with brother color or black and white series. I switched and don't have problems anymore

Bought a canon super g3 laser printer approx 8 months ago which prints in black and white. can i put a colour cartridge into this printer?? thank you


Super G3 is not the model. It is Canon's fax technology. It is classified as a laser fax/printer. This is a monochrome printer which means you can print only one colour at a time. You can print all black or all yellow, all red or whatever colour cartridge is available.It has no capability to mix colours. Not any colour (including black) toner will work as the composition is different to suit the printer model. Hope this helps.

White lines in print--looks like pinstripes


I asked the technician at Staples what he thought and he thought it was the ink cartridge. since I was using 3in1 cartridges and it was expensive to buy two; (1) Black with pale magenta and blue plus (2)red blue and yellow,we bought a new printer that uses one colour only cartidges so we can replace one colour at a time and also use a pale blue and pale magenta to get better reproductions. for a little more than double the price we bought an Hp printer Photosmart C7280 on sale with single cartridges. It will pay off, They are a fraction of the cost of 3in1 colours.
