They make kits you can buy in a store for refilling ink. Lots of these kits come with head cleaner.

The cartridge head may have gotten clogged. Take the cartridge out and clean the head with a damp cloth and print a couple of pages to set this right.

Also, print a test page to make sure the ink hasn't dried up. If it has, you will have to get a new cartridge.

Lexmark z615 only prints black and blue no other colour It is a new cartridge


The print head for the other colours may be blocked.
Try the clean print head maintenance a few times. You may need to replace the print head.

After replacing cartridge in dell 810 the colours printing wrong


Hi

If you haven´t used your inkjet printer for a while it may just be dry ink clogging some of the nozzles in the print head.


To check if yours is clogged...


Remove the ink cartridges
Holding the cartridge upright and press down gently onto a paper towel.

The colour cartridge
you should see YELLOW, MAGENTA (red) and CYAN (blue)

But if any colours are missing? The inks have probably just clogged up? and you will need to buy a new one or if you know you still have ink then you can easily unclog it with a
Magic Inkjet Flush Kit (Which you can find on Ebay)

MIXED COLOURS
If you have others colours coming out then the colours have mixed...
Sometimes caused when people put tape onto the inks to keep them moist but instead the colours mix through capilary action.


If so... leave print head sitting on a paper towel for a few mins until the correct colours appear.



Read more about ink clogs here:
How to Clean, Fix, Repair, Unclog, Dry, Clogged Print Heads on CANON, EPSON, HP, Lexmark, Dell, Olivetti etc…

To prevent an ink clog it is best if you print something regularly about every 10 days to keep the tiny print head nozzles / jets open. Otherwise the ink in the print head will thicken. Then it´s like trying to pass a camel through the eye of a needle.

So to preven inkjet ink from clogging print something every 10 days if you dont have anything to print, use something like these test prints

Color printing problem

No black ink print. Prints in light blue


Cartriges have a shelf life. It's printing in blue either because it has dried up or is out. Different cartriges have different timelines but if you haven't been using the printer often, it could have dried up or is simply out of ink. I would suggest first to try cleaning the head of the cartrige where the ink comes out with alcohol and a Q-tip and then if that doesn't work, buying a new black cartrige.

Blue lines all over the printing


Did u clean the print nozzle's as well? If that does not solve your problem, you should try and replace the cartridge. (Colour in case of blue lines and black in case of black lines)
