I suggest that you clean the inkhead with a wet paper cloth (just a little amount of warm water . enough to make the paper cloth wet).

Remember to remove the inkhead before wiping it with the paper cloth. After that, let it dry and put it back in. Try printing.

My Epson stylus Photo R280 prints like its printing double and is very unclear..how do I correct this problem


You need to align/clean your ink cartridge. Look under the Printers, select your printer and go to Properties. There should be a tab for maintenance.

Lexmark x7170 changed ink cartridge. test sheet comes up great, print something and it says ink low. i tried to shut off 5x's to maybe reset/ reinstalled ink cartridges same message. cleaned heads


The Lexmark x7170 should let you continue printing with the ink cartridge regardless of the estimated ink with most cartridges. The only exception to this is if the cartridges are part of Lexmark's returns programme. I would advise removing the cartridge and checking for small text stating "Return Programme Cartridge" on the label. If this is present sadly there is no way of continuing, apart from buying a new cartridge.

With regards to the low ink estimate, am I right in assuming you are using a refilled or remanufactured ink cartridge? If so this is unavoidable but should not prevent you from printing until the ink physically runs out.

I am printing exterior photos of a buildiing on regular paper for test only. The color is printing out with a green tinge. What is happening?


Not using genuine HP cartridges could be one reason. Low ink cartridges could cause not enough ink to be used to make a certain shade of gray or black and thus causing the green tinge. Also if you are selecting photo quality printing then you need to use photo paper. The printer drivers tell the printer different commands depending on what kind of paper you tell it you are using. Good luck!

Teardrop light is flashing yellow. Green clock at left is lighted. Control panel says everything is ready but it won't print. There is no paoper jam.


Hi there,

This light that is showing the Print Cartridge Status. Here is what you can do:

If the light is on and not flashing: Check to see if a print cartridge is low on ink. If a print cartridge is low on ink, consider replacing the print cartridge. If neither print cartridge is low on ink, press the Resume button. If the Print Cartridge Status light remains on, turn off, then turn on the printer.

If the light is on and flashing: Verify that the correct print cartridges are installed.

Follow these steps:
1. Open the printer's top cover, remove the black or photo print cartridge, then close the cover.
2. Do one of the following:
  • If the light is flashing: Open the top cover, replace the print cartridge you removed, then remove the tri-color print cartridge. Go to step 3.
  • If the light is off: There is a problem with the print cartridge you removed. Go to step 3.
3. Manually clean the print cartridge.
After cleaning the print cartridge, reinsert it into the printer. If the print cartridge status light continues to flash, replace the print cartridge.if the light is on and not flashing. Check to see if a print cartridge is low on ink. If a print cartridge is low on ink, consider replacing the print cartridge.

Brand new canon ink cartridges but my photographs are printing green. I tried the test print out and it came out ok. Could the photo paper I have be the problem?


Usually if your using the wrong photo paper the ink will come out wet on the print instead of drying while coming out of the tray. Printer settings then need to be changed.

I would also suggest cleaning the print heads. But you say this is a brand new machine. I'm also assuming you are using canon cartridges which would eliminate the head cleaning. Was the software installed ok also. (Driver anyway).

Try opening the printer properties and cleaning the print heads (should probably be done each time a cartridge is changed), it uses some ink up but should clean the build up from running the previous cartridge dry and hopefully solve your printing problem.

Good luck.

There are 2 possible problems, or the cartridge is a refilled one or some problem by the cartridge itself. Try to change the cartridge.
