Browns printing pink suggest the blue/yellow jets are clogged or not functioning. If the uses head in cartridge type[that is with a sheet of contacts on the front of the cartridge- then take then out ,damp a tissue in some warm water an place on a plate or similar - then stand the cartriges in the damp tissue until the tissue turns colour - then replace the cartrdge. If it is head in the printer Then take a look here www,fixyourownprinter.com

SOURCE: Everything I print comes out pink, including black print is pink.

Run a clean cycle and a test page this is priming the cartridges. If this fails to get the colors going the printer will need to go in for repair. The internal print circuit could be gone. Check costs before doing this a new printer maybe worth less then the repair.

SOURCE: color printer prints only pink and black

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Maintenance your cartridge with head clean or deep clean. If you don't get full colour, then change the colour cartridge.

Pages come out pink only when printing in colore


The magenta developer is bad.

The developer drive on this printer rotates in both a clockwise and a counter clockwise direction to turn the developers.

When printing black, ( i cant remember which direction it turns, ) only the black developer turns.

When printing color, the developer drive turns the opposite direction, engaging ALL 4 developers.

( the developers are the multi colored bars you see when you remove the image drum unit.)

This is why you do not get the pink output when printing only black.

your choices are to set the printer to only print black and white. ( you can do this in the printer properties for your print driver). or you will need to replace the magenta developer.

Lexmark 125 Prints Labels with color cartridge


I kicked the **** out of it and it started to print. I don't recommend it if you are afraid you may damage the electronics. The way I saw I spent damn near 70 dollars on some useless print cartidges nothing was wrong with them. The error message kept saying ADD CARTRIDGES. Anyway I'm thinking about a new printer anyhow.
