Clogged nozzles the color cartridge needs cleaning with some cartridge flush or some other kind of solution and running a few good cleaning cycles, failing that use it more often to keep the cartridge from drying and causing the ink to stop flowing from the jets.

SOURCE: Lexmark P4350 All-in-One--Ink printout problem

It may sound stupid but try cleaning the steel rod that the cartridge runner runs along, with a little luck this may help the situation I know it has for others. It did not help me though. I have a Lexmart P for POXY 4350 that has had little use, but I have just tried to re-fill the black cartridge and kept getting iether the1203 or 1103 error code. I tried everything bar a complete strip down and it still does not work so I went and bought new cartidges and the problem has not gone away I am therefore stuck with £24's worth of rejected cartridges and a visit to Tesco for a new Epson.

Hello,

There are a number of single issues that can cause your problem in this case. The most common are listed below:
1.) Color cartridge expended.
2.) Print Paper selection incorrect.

From your statement above. I would suggest it is both item 1 and 2. Since, we are doing this assistance via chat mail, I can't come to your aid and witness myself what the results are and what your settings are for the paper type.

When you end up with a red hue over all over the print area the cause it usually a bad print head and selecting the wrong paper type.

To answer you question then, Yes, replace your color cartridge. But, first, try this method below to clean your color cartridge bubble jets.

When you go to print a job, always go into print setup or printer properties and choose the paper type as closely as you can to match the paper you are using.

The print head manual cleaning is listed below, it is from Lexmark. Below that is a process to clean blurry and bad print results. Although this is not specifically the case in your problem. The process to achieve resolution will also correct any problem your machine may be having. Remember, I do believe you need a new color cartridge. You will know with certainty however when you clean the cartridge head. If you do not see, cyan, magenta and yellow lines upon cleaning, at all, ever, then those inks are depleted. Replace your ink cartridge and then do these steps below the head cleaning.

Also, when ever you change a black or color cartridge you will want to run a print head alignment test and adjustment. There is enough of a difference in cartridges that this is quite necessary.

Please do not hesitate to give me as much feedback as possible on any issues and results you discover. You can use the comment text area below to respond to these instructions and give me the results of your tests and procedures.

Regards, Worldvet

To Resolve Print Quality Issues (below is for blurry lines, it will resolve many other issues too, so proceed after replacing your color ink cartridge if upon cleaning you see no ink coming out and the cartridge feels very light and makes little to no sound when you shake the cartridge.)

  • Characters are not printing completely.
  • White dashes appear in graphics or printed text.

    3. From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks.
    4. Click Print. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through to clean the clogged nozzles.
    5. Print the document again to verify that print quality has improved.
    6. If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge nozzles up to two more times.
Clean and Wick the Cartridge
  1. Try cleaning and wicking the cartridge to help improve the print quality. See this article for directions.
  2. When this step is complete, try to run the clean print nozzles (CPN) operation again.

    try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.

    One of 2 things, Replace the transfer cleaning blade. You may be able to clean it and get rid og the problem. The second thing to try is to replace the magenta drum, but thats less likely since you say it goes away in 3-4 pages.I suspect the transfer blade.

    Printer will only print in purple/pink,enstalled new colour cartridge configured as required,still no change. help thank you


    Print out a calibration sheet, either from the menu, or press photo and cancel at the same time. Your calibration sheet is probably missing a color. You should have black, blue, yellow, and magenta(pink). If you're missing any of these colors, your printhead is clogged. Try doing a printhead cleaning. Print another calibration sheet, if the color is still missing, you need a new printhead. Call Kodak.

    Did you run a quality test print by pressing ink etc...?

    It might be that you have no magenta anymore.

    If you can see all the 4 colored blocks on the test sheet, firstly try to copy(!) a picture with pink colors and secondly run a pc print. If there is still no pink and you have it blue or green on the COPY one the scanner needs readjustment (from service personell). If you have trouble with the pc printing, too there might be 
    a defective ink cart holder which leaks and mingles the ink (you need a new ink cart holder then)
