Print head failure

Had a failure on light cyan.... replaced the cartridge and let it do its business and then says failure again when i turned it on today. Then when I looked in the print head compartment. The magenta box then flashed up to say it had failed too. I hadn't touched it. it just seems to decide which one is going to fail when it likes to. Any suggestions to why this printer keep doing this?

SOURCE: Printer has new ink cartridges, no apparent

The print heads are probably clogged :^(
Has the printer been unused for some time? Does the printer show that the cartridges are full?

Does the printer show any errors? It could be that he waste reservoir is full (or thinks it is full) I would suspect that it would report an error though.

If the printer was not used for a while, the ink could be dried on the print heads. Print heads are kind a like paint spray cans. You can try cleaning the print head nozzles with alcohol and or water. The best way to do this is to put a moist (you do not want liquid to drip into the system though) cloth or paper towel under the nozzles. Make sure the printer is unplugged though so any liquid does not fry the electronics. Make sure the printer is completely dry before plugging in again.

Hope this helps, Jim

HP Officejet 6310 will not print cyan

The Cyan print head nozzle maybe blocked.
If deep cleaning does not fix it then you need a new print head.
The cost of a new print head is expensive and it maybe better to get a new printer.

Cyan is not printing in EPSON-R230

Nothing at all of cyan and light-cyan?. It might be damage/broken micro pump at head or short circuit. Replace head or buy new printer.

When my screen shows that some items are to print in blue they actually print in red.

Sounds like you are missing cyan. Change the cyan cartridge. If you have not used color on the printer recently, the head may be blocked.

If the head is blocked, try putting the color cartridge on a piece of * slightly * damp piece of paper towel. This should draw color out of the head onto the paper. Once you get blue (cyan), you should try printing again.

Hp business inkjet 2800 will not print cyan although have replaced cartridge and run all onboard diagnostics. hp troubleshoot shows no problem yet printer will not print

You say you replaced the cartridge but did you replace the print head. If you fully lift the cartridge cover you will see a row of print heads. The Cyan print head is C4811A. Try replacing this.


If you feel lucky you can run the print head cleaner diagnostics. The print head may simply be dirty or clogged.

The new light cyan cartridge was not printing...I thought it may be faulty so purchased another which also did not work. I did 'clean print head ' several times followed by nozzle check. All other colours...

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Very Faint Printouts

I find the best way to clean the heads is buy some cleaning cartridges as they have cleaning fluid in them and use them to clean it will take about 10 or more times to clean the heads then put the color ones back in and try again.
Just keep putting it on clean the head don't do a print out till at lest you have cleaned 10 or more times.
