Colours are 'washedout' even though new cartridges

I have been having problems with colour for some time. I have installed new KODAK CARTRIDGES BUT THE PROBLEM IS WORSE NOT BETTER. There are lines running through the image, no red at all seems to be printing and this is just copying - not photographs. This printer was purchased just a few months ago.

You need to clean the heads. Most inkjet printers come with a utlity that does this and then prints out a page to check to see if you were successful. It make take a couple of tries to get it to work.

Why dosesnt my printer print even though i have new cartridges?


Sounds unlikely but somteimes they sell defective new cartridges. Look for original packing, maybe still in your wastebasket, and verify expire date.

Why am I missing colors on prints


Could be the print job you send to the printer is set up to print in black and white.
Or the cartridges are full and the nozzles from the printhead are blocked.
Run a cleaning cycle on the printer. If some colour appears continue till all colours are back for all nozzles.
If you did not use he printer for a long time, remove the cartridges one by one and put a drop of cleaning fluid in the pipes in the cartridge holder (where the ink goes in) tun replace the cartridge and print one or two full sized colour photos, till all colours are back.

Print not clear on black print with colour breaking through across paper


your ink cartridges are clogged or empty. Sometimes they get reset even though they are nearly out. remove them carefully clean all of the gold part with a clean soft cloth. Re insert and try to print a test page. If unsuccessful purchase new cartridges.OEM for a good quality refill from a known company is best.

I'm trying to fax, it says color cartridge replace


marcarrico,

Even though you do not print in colour, your printer will still slowly but surely **** out the colour ink in your printer/fax machine. The unit does a thing called purging. this is a necessary part of the printer maintaining the print head in a printable condition. Everytime it does this it will **** a small amount of ink through the head, Including your colour inks. Over time the inks will empty even if you don't use the ink. All inkjet printers do this and there is not a thing you can do about it. If you want to use the printer, you will have no choice but to replace the colour cartridges.
As a suggestion, if you only ever use black then you would be far better off with a small laser fax. they start from about $350au and they will give you a better print in text and the cartridges will last about 10 times as long as the ink jet.
