You've got a clogged head. Less painful than it sounds! :-) Clean the heads, use the head cleaner software in the maintenance section of the driver software. If this doesn't work clean them again, and again, and again... If 6 cleaning cycles doesn't shift it, you'll have to find some sort of ink head flushing fluid and inject it VERY VERY carefully into the holes that the printer draws the ink through. Google how to do this if 6 cleaning cycles doesn't do it.

Why too much yellow and red no greens or blues ?


Inkjet printers use additive pigments. CMYK, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. It sounds like you're not getting any Cyan ink to the paper. Either your printer is out of Cyan ink, or your Cyan print head is clogged.

Go into your printer's Properties and run a Nozzle Check. It will print a series of lines with each color. There will probably be a big empty space where it tried and failed to print Cyan. You can try cleaning the print heads, but if you're getting NO Cyan that is unlikely to work.

If you're lucky, your printer is one of the ones that the print heads are built into the ink cartridge so replacing the cartridge will resolve the problem. If you're not, you might need to get it serviced (or probably more cost effective, buy a new printer).

Xerox 8500 phaser prints brown tint


Most likely the cyan ink is burnt. If the ink sticks are left unused (printing more black than color, this will happen.

Print the test pages for PQ troubleshooting from the control panel and examine each print. Cyan will probably have very dark streaks down the page, magenta should look normal, and yellow also will have dark stripes. You need to replace this burnt ink, and the only way is to print. From within paint (or similar accessory in other OS) Create a full page of cyan, and print about 100 - 200 pages, or until the cyan starts to clear up. Yes it is a waste, but much cheaper than a print head, Do this for yellow as well.

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.

Either the ink you are using is not going to give the color you want, or you have print heads that are blocked.

I changed all Print cartridges-Black, Yellow,Cyan,Blue


On this machine you have to install inks with power on and use the ink button and choose replace ink. If you just plug them in it won't register and reset the counts. You may need to run clean cycles at least twice to get proper colors.

Colour Ink Jet Cartridges emptying during a black ink print run


Hi,
If you go to your printer properties, there should be a setting whereby you have to select the option to "PRINT USING BLACK CARTRIDGE ONLY". Make sure this option is selected, otherwise your printer will use ALL colors even if you only print black.
Let me know if you need any further assistance.
Best wishes,
Graemevm
