Re: my printer doesint print magenta on test page

Did you use third party ink? Insert a genuine (original) brother ink cart and do the cleaning twice. there should be magenta again. If there is no magenta after that, this could be either because of air in the system (thats why you should do the cleaning twice!) or the nozzels are clogged (and cant be cleaned anymore).

Fault finding

Magenta Print-head may be blocked.

Depending on the model of machine.
Either on the Menu on the printer find Ink Management or press the Ink Management button.
Print a Test Page
If no Magenta Dots showing then proceed to Cleaning and Clean the print-heads through the proceedures given on the machine.
Print another test page. If Magenta Dots are fine then cleaning done. if not then try cleaning again.
If still not fine then the machine will need to be cleaned professionally which will cost a reasonable amount. Most service fees are more that it is to replace the printer.

Magenta cartrage is 25 % full but will not print

try printing the Supplies Status Page and the DEMO page. if no magenta on either page, then it sounds like the scanner assembly is dirty. this is the lowest position scanner; it can be partially seen from inside the cartridge cavity. Typically a 1-1/2 (ish) hour repair.

Hp 3600n laster printer has started printing pink blothes on pictures

You probably have a defective magenta cartridge. To test that you need Print Test Quality pages.

1. Press Menu to open the MENUS.

2. Press to highlight DIAGNOSTICS, and then press .

3. Press to highlight PQ TROUBLESHOOTING, and then press .

The message PRINTING... PQ TROUBLESHOOTING appears on the control-panel display until the

printer finishes printing the PQ troubleshooting pages. The printer returns to the Ready state after
printing the PQ troubleshooting pages.

the pages it produces are individual colors, black, magenta, yellow and cyan and a white page and a config sheet.If the defect is on all pages then it might be a bad transfer belt. If it is only on one of the color pages, that will tell you which cartridge is bad.

When the printer prints the colours come out all wrong

If the cyan, magenta and yellow blocks print correctly on the self test page but on pages from the computer then I woukld suspect a driver issue.
I would suspect the cartridge has run out of magenta ink. Try printing a diagnostic page.If the colors are "wrong" on this test then your cartridge is most likely the issue.

I have a HP Photosmart C5180 printer. It is not printing purple-instead what comes out is blue. I have done a print test report and it showed the Light magenta and magenta with missing bars and streaks. I...

If your color improved slightly when running the printhead option then doing more should help get better results. Sometime the printheads get really dirty/clogged and running the cleaning option more then once is needed.

If you get a slight line running across the page (from left to right) usually the indicates dust build up on the printhead or ink carriage. The dust acts as a paint brush being dragged across your paper as the carriage moves across the page during printing. You can clean the bottom of the carriage with a Q-tip or purchase some cleaning paper for your printer.

IP4300 only recognizes magenta OR cyan

1. Get compressed air
2. Run Printhead under HOT water, do not worry about contacts getting slightly wet.

3. Blow compressed air with straw attachment into screens where the cartridge nozzle sits on printhead. then let it sit and dry.

4. reinstall print test page

5. if this fails open paint/photoshop and print a page of the color that is not printing correctly. rinse and repeat until colors flow freely.

I have several ip4300s and I have yet to give up the ghost on a printer with a clog ujsing this method.

Brother DCP-130C refuses to print the magenta ink

If you don't print at least once a month, you will clog the machine. You unfortunately have to get it fixed by a professional or get a new printer. Sorry!
