Even though my black cartridge is full, my black and white documents are so light they are unreadable. My color cartridges are close to being empty. Can this be the cause?

I have a dell p513w printer, and recently it stop printing color copies. I have replaced black and color ink, cleaned and deep cleaned pinhead.


You said the device will not "print" color copies. Have you tried to make a copy of something in color?
Recommend printing out a demo page that should show all colors listed, also do a print head alignment that would show the colors too.

My MP530 willnot print black printed text. How do I now if the ink head is plugged and what do I do about it?


Hi ...

I would suggest you try and clean the print head and that should resolve the problem. Follow the below steps to clean the print head:

Perform a Cleaning of the print head:
Caution: Cleaning consumes a certain amount of ink. Perform Cleaning only when necessary.
Note: The pattern varies depending on the printer and version of Windows being used.
  1. Click 'Cleaning' to perform print head cleaning from the Pattern Check window and proceed to step 3 of the print head cleaning instructions. If the Pattern Check window is closed, skip this step and proceed to step 2.

  2. To perform a print head cleaning from the Maintenance window, click 'Cleaning'.

    mp_500_win_maint_phc.jpg

  3. When the Print Head Cleaning window is displayed, select the target ink group for 'Cleaning'.


    Note: When performing Cleaning for all colors, check 'All Colors'.

    mp_500_ph_cleaning_all_colors.jpg


    Note: When performing Cleaning for Black only, deselect 'All Colors' and check 'Black'.

    mp_500_ph_cleaning_black_only.jpg


    Note: When performing Cleaning for Color only, deselect 'All Colors', and check 'Color'.

  4. After selecting the target ink group click 'Execute' to perform the cleaning of the print head nozzles.

    mp_500_ph_cleaning_execute.jpg

  5. When the confirming message is displayed, check the contents, and click 'OK'.


    Caution: Although the Nozzle Check window is displayed, do not perform any other operations until Cleaning is completed.. Cleaning will take about 40 seconds.


  6. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern and examine.

  7. Perform Cleaning again if necessary.


    Memo: If the pattern is still abnormal after two Cleanings, perform up to two Deep Cleanings.


Perform Deep Cleaning of the print head
Caution: Deep Cleaning consumes a larger amount of ink than normal Cleaning. Perform Deep Cleanings only when necessary.
  1. In the Maintenance window, click 'Deep Cleaning'.

    mp_500_win_maint_dphc.jpg


    Note: The layout varies depending on the printer and version of Windows you are using.

  2. When the Deep Cleaning window is displayed, select the target ink group for Deep Cleaning.

    mp_500_dph_cleaning_targets.jpg


    Note: When performing Cleaning for all colors, check 'All Colors'.

    mp_500_dph_cleaning_all_colors.jpg


    Note: When performing Cleaning for Black only, deselect 'All Colors' and check 'Black'.

    Note: When performing Cleaning for Color only, deselect 'All Colors', and check 'Color'.

    mp_500_dph_cleaning_color_only.jpg

  3. Click 'Execute'.

    mp_500_dph_cleaning_execute.jpg

    Memo: By clicking 'Initial Check Items' before clicking 'Print Check Pattern', you can see the specific confirmation items in Nozzle Check.

  4. When the confirming message is displayed, click 'OK'. (The Power lamp will blink green and Deep Cleaning starts. The blink stops when Deep Cleaning is over.)

  5. When Deep Cleaning starts, check the contents, and click 'OK'.


    Caution: To prevent interruption of the Deep Cleaning process, do not perform any other operations until Deep Cleaning is completed. When the operation of the printer is stopped, Deep Cleaning is completed. Deep Cleaning will take about 75 seconds.


  6. Print Nozzle Check again.


    Note: If the printed pattern is still not normal, perform steps 1 through 4 of the Deep Cleaning process one additional time.


    Caution: If after two Deep Cleanings the Nozzle Check Pattern is still not normal, turn the printer off and let it sit for 24 hours or more before attempting another Deep Cleaning again. The wait time may allow dried ink in clogged print head nozzles to liquefy, and resolve the problem
If this does not resolve the problem, please reply back and we'll try the next step ...

Scanned pictures are printing with different colors


Are the ink cartridges refilled or compatible? They may be defective.
Are they installed correctly (not in the wrong slots)?
** Note that even if they are replaced it will take SEVERAL pages before the quality returns

My printer only prints pictures, no text.


Sounds like your black pigment (PGBK-5) cartridge has clogged up the printhead or similar.

You could try running a single Deep clean on the that colour alone (use Right click printer > printing preferences > maintenance tab > Deep Cleaning)

If that doesn't work you will probably need to either:
- clean the printhead (see this thread)
or
- replace the printhead/cartridge

Hope that helps.

Epson PM240 Photo printer HAS WRONG COLORS


Hi

You should try to use a different cartridge to see if it is the cartridge or the printer itself.

Also, make sure that all of the colors are coming out of the cartridge. You can touch a moistened kleenex to the head to check this.

you should also try a deep clean.

1. Right-click the printer icon, and then select 'Properties'.

2. Click the 'Maintenance' tab, and then click 'Deep Cleaning'.

3. Select 'All Colors', 'Black' or 'Color' for the print head to be cleaned.

4. Read the message displayed, and then click 'OK'. The power lamp blinks and print head deep cleaning starts. (Do not perform any other operations until print head deep cleaning is complete. Print head deep cleaning takes about 1 minute.)


Please let me know how all of this goes and we can try further things if this is still a problem.

Thanks
