Printing with just finish cartridge

How do I print with just finish cartridges? I can print with the standard 4 colors but when trying to print with just finish I get the error light. I suspect there are special setting I need to use within the drivers but, I dont know how. If anyone has sucessfully printed with only finish cartridges before let me know what settings to use.

You need to print it in spot colour mode.

Click Click File-> Print, and when the print dialogue pops up, click Properties. In the printer driver dialogue that opens select Spot Colour, click the Spot Colour button, select Finish (Glossy Finish) and print.

How do I reload staples into my Xerox WorkCentre 7530?


You did not indicate finisher? Xerox MFPs' come with the most finishing options of any manufacturer.... I included instructions for all of them below. Enjoy!
Solution : Load Staples in the Professional Finisher With Booklet Maker The stapler in the booklet maker uses two Staple Cartridges labeled R2 and R3. Booklet stapling requires that both Staple Cartridges be free of jammed staples.
WARNING: Do not perform this procedure when the printer is copying or printing.
  1. Make sure the printer has stopped copying or printing.
  2. Open the Finisher Front Door.

  3. Squeeze the orange R2 and R3 levers together and pull the Staple Cartridge unit out of the Finisher until it stops.

    NOTE: The Staple Cartridge unit does not detach from the Finisher.

  4. Grasp the orange tabs on both sides of the Staple Cartridge and lift the cartridge out of the Staple Cartridge Unit.

  5. Push the new cartridge into the Staple Cartridge Unit.

Xerox Phaser 6180N Laser Printer printing a faint but noticable blue line when printing in color - not an intentionalline. The lines are 3


Most likely replacing the cyan print cartridge will clear this right up. The part number is 113R00719 for the standard capacity. Iteminc.com has this in stock and ships same day for $99. Good luck, and thanks for using fixya!

If the results print out like this, there are two possibilities:
1. Red ink in the cartridge runs out. Solution: injecting with red ink
2. If the red ink has been filled, and check pattern is still not out, meaning the color cartridge error.
Solution: replace the cartridges

My Lexmark Z2320 only printing pink.... 3/4 full black cartridge, and 1/2 full color cartridge. Why only printing pink....


If your printer is only printing one color, it is a clear sign that the printer is in need of a head cleaning, and possibly an alignment. The instructions to do so are as follows according to the Lexmark website:

  1. Load plain paper.
  2. Then do one of the following:
    - in Windows Vista, click pattlnk_852008_1527-vista-start-button.gif.
    - in Windows XP and earlier, click Start.
  3. Click All Programs or Programs, and then select the printer program folder from the list.
  4. From the printer folder, click Maintenance - Align Cartridges.
  5. Click Print.
  6. Follow the instructions on the computer screen to finish

  1. Load plain paper.
  2. Do one of the following:
    - in Windows Vista, click pattlnk_852008_1536-vista-start-button.gif.
    - un Windows XP and earlier, click Start.
  3. Click All Programs or Programs, and then select the printer program folder from the list.
  4. From the printer folder, click Maintenance - Clean Cartridges.
  5. Click Print. A page prints, forcing ink through the print cartridge nozzles to clean them.
  6. Print the document again to verify that the print quality has improved.
Complete both of these processes, and your printer should begin printing normally again.

QUESTION FOR DON_FARR


whenever you print greyscale what actually happen is that the printer mixes the red, blue and yellow to give the output in gray scale. See if you mix red, blue and yellow ink in the right proportion it gives you very close to black. just try to print your greyscale with your black ink finished you will still get the same print quality as when the black has ink in it. Or find a way seal the nuzzle of the black in and print your greyscale. check what results.

If the color cartridge doesn't print the color bars on the alignment page (either, redish pink, yellow or blue) then the alignment process will not finish. Same for the black. If the black cartridge is printing ok, then replace the color cartridge and try this again...
