Try reinstall the printer driver again, if still have issue take the cartridges out of the printer then take a paper towel fold it in half and just dab the cartridge on the paper towel to see if it is bleeding ok dab it all over the paper towel to see if it gets better or worse. If it gets better make sure it bleeds good enough to get a solid strip of ink then try it in the printer. if it gets worse take a small plastic container and boil some water then put just enough boiling water in the container to cover the bottom just a touch more then take the cartridge and dip it in and out of the hot water a few times and do the paper towel dip again. The hot water will break up any dry ink in the cartridge head and get it bleeding again. If your cartridge has an electronic board on it use 99% isopropyl alcohol and a Q tip and apply it to the cartride board and don't use the tip use the side of the Q tip and apply a bit of pressure, not only will you clean the contacts but you will evaporate the water that got on the board then wait 5 minutes and try it in the printer. Let me know if you need further assistance Thanks K

    Also ensure that you don't have the printer's setup set to Draft printing.

    Thanks

HP Officejet 6310 will not print cyan


The Cyan print head nozzle maybe blocked.
If deep cleaning does not fix it then you need a new print head.
The cost of a new print head is expensive and it maybe better to get a new printer.

No cyan on photo


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Will not print cyan


The cyan print head may be blocked. Try several deep cleaning of the print head to see if it can clear the blocked cyan print nozzles. Also check the cyan cartridge, make sure it is not empty.
If none of this works then the print head needs to be replaced. NOTE the print head is not a cheap item, you may consider putting the money towards a new and better printer.

Cyan cartridge prints spotty.


Your print head is probably clogged. If you have already tried the cleaning cycle, it's time to take the printer into an Epson repair center to find out what the problem is. More than likely they will have to replace the print head.

HP all-in-one not printing cyan color


Place a soft clean tissue paper over the cartridge print head and leave for about eight minutes. You can secure it with the aid of a rubber band. It should be held firm ok. If the tissue paper is not dampened by ink then the cartridge would have gone bad or the ink dried. You also know that they have expiry date and could go bad while yet in the packaging b/c it has expired. Good luck

Very Faint Printouts


I find the best way to clean the heads is buy some cleaning cartridges as they have cleaning fluid in them and use them to clean it will take about 10 or more times to clean the heads then put the color ones back in and try again.
Just keep putting it on clean the head don't do a print out till at lest you have cleaned 10 or more times.

Cyan will not print


Try replacing the cartridge. Sometimes they do get clogged and won't clear no matter how many cleaning cycles you run.

Won't print(after changing cartridges


blank pages and bad print are not the same problem. Regarding costly ink, a epson printer tech told me once that the secrete to cleaning a bad print head was to run deep clean 7 times in a row and then a head test and it has worked for me several times on other printers (not an expert here, just personal experience).

Additional note, I have seen both cleaning chemicals and cleaning cartridges on the web, example, searching google for one for my printer I would search for cc-bci-6c which is for a canon cyan cleaning cartridge. Don't know if they work but in case it helps.. good luck.
