Switch the machine on. Press the "Ink Management" key to the left of the screen. Go down to "Cleaning" and press ok. Chose the colour you would like to clean and press ok. The cleaning process uses a tiny amount of ink. Hope this solves your problem Good luck.

Hi Steven Quick im happy to help you

When you say many documents, we talk about an amount of 200 pages, this is the case, you need to replace another cartridge.

If not that much, I can recommend to clean injectors to try to solve the problem, if you have clogged nozzles.

Try cleaning the corona wire on each toner cartridge. This may help solve your solution.
If this does not help try another thing.
Try and replace the toner cartridge. Maybe your toner cartridge needs to be replaced. Usualy when printed images are light or pale a toner cartridge replacement is recommended.

It says to replace the yellow ink, i did and still getting the same message, am unable to print

first, Examine the Ink Sensor Window to see if ink is visible through the clear plastic. Hold up the ink cartridge and look at it, if the middle section has ink in it, then most likely the sensor board is bad. Generic inks tend to cause this problem.

If you don't see ink, then the cartridge you have really is empty.

Your problem could be because of bad alignment. That means paper alignment and printer alignment don't match. There will be instructions in,your manual to properply align your printer.
