The machine requires all color in order to print anything, even just black and white copies. You need to install a new cyan ink before it will print.

My brother CIP-J140W is only printing in cyan. I had accidentally put the cyan cartridge in the black cartridge spcae. Despite changing them around, cleanre the head etc, it is still only printing in cyan....


Oops, You really have to print, selected black, till all Cyan ink is gone. This could take a while. Cleaning the head, won't solve anything.
If you really want to clean the ink out of the head and everything, you need special cleaning fluid. Refill shops do have this fluid. You should bring some cleaning fluid in the tube under the black cartridge, in the tube where the ink is going in. If you have a syringe you could try to gently press some fluid through the tube. Not to strong. could damage the head.
After placing back the black cartridge, select clean the head and let the printer do some black and withe print jobs, till the cyan is gone.

The C534n says Cyan low (0%) was printing, now won't print.


If you're still going to print in colors, unfortunately, it won't print and there's no way for the printer to ignore your out of ink level unless you change the cyan ink. I understand how costly that can be but you can still make the printer print if you configure it for black-only printing. Here's a link to download the User's Guide for the instructions on how to configure printer for Color Lock Out Mode. http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/c53x/en/ug.pdf . Scroll to Printing, page 50, for the instructions. Since you won't be printing in color, you have to remove the color supplies. The User's Guide will give you instructions for that as well.

Can you force a printer to print in grayscale?


Yes, you can bypass the color printing. The software you are using for printing can help you change from colour to gray scale or adjust it in the printer properties.

Hi,
Your Cyan cartridge is empty and need replacement. Maybe you can clean head of Cyan cartridge with alcohol but symptoms are the empty cartridge!

Printing pale


Make sure your printer is not set up as "draft" (see printing settings/properties). In addition try forcing the print quality to "best".

Photo printing


It is definite one cartridge is not running. You do one thing - 1. Write documents in MS-Word - select all - change the color to Red. Take print out. Check Printing is perfect or not.
2. Write documents in MS-Word - select all - change the color to Cyan. Take print out. Check Printing is perfect or not.
3. Write documents in MS-Word - select all - change the color to Yellow. Take print out. Check Printing is perfect or not.
I am sure when you changed the color to Cyan - it did not print Cyan or blank page you got.
So you must replace the Cyan cartridge or may be ink is not coming out through the passage. And first you have to check whether you have removed the plastic tape from the head of t he cartridge.
