Hi, sounds like the colours are mixing because of the overfill. You can try this , but may take a while.
Get some tissues (around 6) fold them in half and put on the table. Keep dabbing your ink cartridge on the tissues in different places until you can see the 3 different colours clearly. This can take a while, but generally does work...

I want to print in white ink on black paper. I have a Canon MX310 printer


Inkjet printer inks are dye-based, and that's the reason.

Perhaps this will help explain things. You know those little boxes of food colouring you can buy in the supermarket - the ones that have four little bottles of colour - red, blue, yellow and green. Within reason you can combine these to turn white icing into most colours. Use nothing and the icing is still white or use everything and the icing will go a black-brown colour. Use a couple of drops of red and blue and you'll get purple.

But if you start with black icing, there's nothing you can add that will make it anything but black.

It's the same with your inkjet printer - because white is obtained by not having any ink print on the white paper. But of course that only works when the paper is white. Naturally you'll get different results on all colours of paper, decreasing as the paper gets darker in colour. Print blue on yellow paper and you should get green printing.

The only way to print in white is to do what commercial printers do - use opaque inks and include a white ink in the process. And as far as I know there's no commercial ink that will do that with an inkjet printer.

I can hear lots of you muttering "Rubbish. Of course you can print light colours on dark paper." Well all I can say is, have fun experimenting, but you won't be able to do it.

About the only way to achieve the sort of result you may be after is to print the job then trim it and paste it in place. For instance, if you want to print onto a black or dark-coloured T-shirt then print onto white transfer material, trim the print to size and iron it in place.

Tip

Why your inkjet printers last only one year


Inkjet ink is glycerine and alcohol
Inkjet printers need to be used. You cannot leave an inkjet on a shelf and print only once a year. Use the thing occasionally. Use the same page, both sides, just to run it once in a while. Once a month will usually do.
Inkjet machines that have replaceable individual ink
DO NOT LET THE INK RUN OUT. Have a standby ink for all colours or go and get ink as soon as it runs out. Today will be good. Next week may be too late. Do not remove the ink cartridge until you have a spare to install NOW.
Inkjet with all colours in one cartidge, black with a metal bottom, black and colour with a metal bottom on each.
It does not matter if these run out of ink. The whole cartridge must be replaced. If you refill your ink at a store, place the cartridge in a ziplock bag and seal it. Take the cartridge in the same day for best results.
If you refill your own cartridges, do it right away for best results. Press the refilled cartidge head on a clean paper half a dozen times to see if you get nice clear bands.
Replaceable print heads separate from the ink
You don't want to buy one. $$$. A clogged one can be sometimes restored by soaking in PURE alcohol (99%). Swish it around a bit up and down to help clean the head pores. Dry it off and try in the machine.

Printer HP Deskjet D1460 prints pink"..Instead of Black


The printed colours are an "additive" mix of the "primary" colours in your printer.

So, when the colour ink-jet cartridge is "out-of-ink" on one (or more) of its colours, the "mix" will be off, and the "wrong" colour will be the result.

Change the colour cartridge.

Before changing it, run a "deep-cleaning" cycle, using the HP Support software that was installed when you installed from the CD-ROM that came with the printer, to "clean" any/all "clogged" ink-jets -- i.e., a clog could be preventing one colour of ink from being sprayed onto the paper.

My guess is you either have the wrong cartridges or your cartridges need replacing.

The black is printing dark redish brown


Dear friend, your Black Ink Cartridge is Empty thats why your printer is using the Colour Cartridge to produce the Black Colour. This is the reason you are having Dark Reddish Brown colour instead of Black.

Canon all in one printer refill ink cartridges


i have just filled my mx 310 with the jet tec refills as instructed....but do not insert the rubber bungs...instead put some celotape over the filling holes... then with a needle...pierce the celotape where the hole is( pin *****).... this set up is now able to breathe as originally designrd. Mine prints fine now this has been done (trial and error), but i might try better quality ink next fill. Its also wise to use glossy paper 230gsm or over for good results.
GOOD LUCK.
