Try reinstalling the driver if it is a local printer, also try a firmware update for the printer

Printer does not print in color but only prints in


Run a "print-head-cleaning-cycle" -- the ink inside the cartridges is not getting through the ink-jets, and is not reaching the paper.

Either that, or the electronics inside the ink-jets are malfunctioning, i.e., not telling the ink-jets to shoot the ink out.

Poor Print Quality


the print head has a series of pins that shoot back and forth striking the ribbon and placing a dot on the page, a series of dots create a letter etc. one pin is not working correctly. it could be the head but try re-instal drivers to eliminate that as a cause. if the line persists then i'm afraid it may well be the head to be replaced. good luck

False "paper jam" signal prevents printing: My HP 2210 had been working fine. Suddenly, when I try to print, the paper starts to feed for a few inches and then stops. I get a "clear paper jam" error...


it's probably due to what i would call the print head blocker ( on your left handside of your printer head) that is broken . check it out! it also responsable to control how far goes the sheet before start printing.

I'm using an iMac G5 with an Epson an Epson RX595 printer. Everything worked well for a long time. Now ... the printer just shoots paper through constantly without printing. I've re-installed the newest...


hi,,
the nozzles of the printer might be clogged by dried inks thats why when your printing, its feeding the paper, as if its printing but no inks on the paper. print a nozzle check to see which part or color have clogs, if there are gaps or breaks, do head cleaning untill no more gaps then try printing.

click this link to see how to print a nozzle check and run a head cleaning, click the search box and type nozzle check, select "check the print head nozzles"
type head and select "clean the print head nozzles"

Printing blank..


Try running at least three print head cleanings then a nozzle check, if this still comes out blank then keep running cleanings in sets of three the print head is a seperate unit inside your printer and this can dry up. Or if the pages are shooting out at a really fast speed, then this is a overload error try turning off the printer / unplugging it and clearing your print cue (click on the printer on the start up bar, if there isn't a printer then it should be clear). hope this helps

Yes vintos after long storage problems with the printer heads may arrise.

Thermal changes from being in storage can cause the printer heads to dry up and fail.

DO NOT USE ALCOHOL or other solvents in an attempt to clear the printer heads.

1. Attempt to change ink cartridges , this may clear the issue.

If that fails , you may be forced to change printer heads at that point.
