I just had this issue yesterday but it was the MP610. Every color would print except for black. I sent Canon an email from their support site. They said I needed a replacement unit and today they sent email saying the new one is on the UPS truck on it's way to me! I just had to give them the purchase date which was 01-03-2008. Maybe you should give this a try. I've never had such good customer service from any company! Good luck.

I just installed a brand new HP 17 color cartridge in my HP deskjet 845c (as it appeared that the old one had run out of pink and yellow color) and now the new one will only print out in blue. I took out...

One of the first things I would do is called "footprinting" the cartridge. Remove the cartridge from you machine and firmly press the bottom of the cartridge, the print head, onto a paper towel. Use your other hand to apply even pressure from underneath the paper towel. This, hopefully, will cause ink to bleed out of the cartridge and onto the paper towel. Be aware that you may get ink on you and take measures to prevent it if necessary. A good footprint from that cartridge should yield three small rectangles of the three colors in the cartridge, it is ok if they bleed into each other. If cyan is the only color flowing you can try moistening the paper towel with some warm distilled water and gently holding this against the print head for a short while (30 sec), again ink should come out. If there the cyan is still the only color to flow there is nothing more you can do at home. Return the cartridge if you can.

If however all three colors footprint well then it may be a driver and/or firmware issue with the printer. I would try reinstalling the driver first, then upgrading the firmware is an upgrade is available. Those machine are getting older and probably do not have as much support available as newer machines do.

Poor photo printing quality with new color cartridge

Shaking these cartridges does nothing except give you a little exercise. If this is a brand new HP cartridge you are having problems with I would return it to the store you purchased it from. HP brand cartridges should not give you these problems right out of the box. The print defects you are seeing are due to a dried up or clogged print head. If you like you can try hydrating the print head on a water soaked paper towel until the ink starts flowing, but there's a risk you will cross contaminate the colors.

To replace the ink cartridges
1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is turned on.
2. Open the ink cartridge door by lifting from the front center of the device, until the door locks into place.
3. Squeeze the tab below an ink cartridge to release the latch inside the HP All-in-One, and then lift the latch.
If you are replacing the black ink cartridge, lift the latch on the far left.
If you are replacing one of the five color ink cartridges, such as yellow, light cyan (blue), cyan, light magenta (pink), or magenta, lift the appropriate latch in the center area.
4. Pull the ink cartridge toward you out of its slot to remove it.
5. Remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging, and then, holding it by the handle, slide the ink cartridge into the empty slot.
Make sure that you insert the ink cartridge into the slot that has the same shaped icon and color as the one you are installing.
6. Press down on the gray latch until it clicks into place.
7. Repeat steps 2 through 5 for each ink cartridge you are replacing.
8. Close the ink cartridge door.

re Printing in black only - you can do this by selection this option from your application and choosing the print properties of the printer and setting to Black / Greyscale printing only.

Epson 1400 Printing Orange colors Green

The problem can be two fold. Wrong cartridges, or blocked/damaged inkjet openings. Return it to the seller under warranty if its brand new. If it was fitted with non epson cartridges your warranty may be in question.

But I could almost guarantee the black qand the blue cartridges are faulty or their feed jets are

Ink Cartridge

Some of Epson's cartridges went bad that way. It may be a bad cartridge. Get a new one, pull that one out and see what happens. If it works, call Epson for a refund. They had a class action suit for that type of thing, they lost and paid off. I would think they will help you right away.
