Hello,

Typical ink jet printer, cant see the cartridge. I would consider cleaning the connectors where the cartridge goes some times these don't send good signals to the computer. If that doesn't work it could be a board problem in that case it would be cheaper for you to buy a new printer. I know this may sound stupid, but did you take the tape off the cartridge before you installed it? I have to ask because I have seen people put toner in printers that still had the packaging tape with signs saying "please remove before installing". So check that out and see if that resolves the issue. Use cue tips and rubbing alcohol and clean all the posts and make sure the cartridge is firmly back in its place when you are finished.

Thanks,
Armymason

Stopped printing yellow


Out of yellow ink?
If your ink is full, then you most likely have a dried up yellow ink path or the sponge at the bottom of the printer is full and preventing ink to pass through to the paper. Chances are, you are plugged up and need a new printer - HP is water based and if not used on a constant bases, the ink will dry and cause clogging.

26.001 error hp 4000


26.0:01 is a bad contact in the Ink Supply System for the yellow ink cartridge. (This can be caused by using non HP OEM ink)

Check that the ISS to Cartridge cable is not damaged and is fully connected to the Ink Supply Tubes PCA.
You can also try switching the magenta contacts with the yellow contacts and see if the problem stays with the yellow, or you now have a magenta problem.
If the problem stays with the yellow, then you will need to replace the Ink Supply Tubes and Trailing Cable.
If the problem moves to the magenta, then you just need to repair or replace the contacts (may just need cleaned)

Good luck !

(My money is on bad compatible or refilled yellow ink cartridges)

This model printer has only two slots for ink cartridges. One is for a black ink cartrigde and the other is for a tri-color cartridge which contains cyan, magenta and yellow inks.
This tri-color cartridge has run out of yellow ink, you need to replace this tri-color cartridge.

My printer ink is full and it just printing in black and yellow


The ink leaves the ink-cartridge, and should flow through the ink-jets to be sprayed onto the paper.
If some of the ink-jets are clogged (blue, red) and some of the ink-jets are fine (black, yellow),
then you need to run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to try to unclog those ink-jets.

Epson r265 keeps printing purple pictures I have installed new cartridges and done a head clean several timesbut i just won't budge


You probably need to purge the yellow ink channel. Use the cleaner found in refill kits and gently force the cleaner through the channel where the yellow ink cartridge attaches.

After cleaning, you will need to "charge" that ink channel either by many cleanings or by forcing the yellow ink into the channel before installing the cartridge.

Print colour is off


Sounds like you have cyan and magenta ink but no yellow. (You need yellow to get yellows, greens, reds and orange shades.) First try running the printer utility to clean your ink jets, then run a test print. If this does not work then simply replace the yellow ink cartridge.
