Nozzles may need replacement. I would buy a new printer as they are cheaply priced. Epson.com has loads of them.

Brother Printer-copy-scan-photo capture Model DCP-110C After replacing black ink and yellow ink, still says yellow ink low, and will just print out pink menu items, no message. I cleaned it 5 times. ...


place the printer cartridge into a small amount of water to make sure the yellow is flowing out. Let me know what this finds and try it again if yellow comes out.

Also, what exactly did you clean, the metal contacts?

Canon Pixma yellow color problem


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

Printing in yellow tones, all ink cartridges are full and grid pattern ok and nozzles cleaned


Possibly the print head is getting plugged or the color map settings are changed. Try removing the printer and reinstalling the drivers as well as clicking the "default" settings button after. If this does not fix it, possibly the head itself is ok on a test pattern with low ink but on printing is not delivering full ink in all colors, only yellow, indicating the head is plugging. Possibly cleaning with alcohol would help, place a drop on each place the cartridge inserts on the ink tubes and also clean the head surface where the ink comes out with a Q-tip and alcohol and then do a regular head clean.

Printing problem


lynchfam3 it is problem with the print head so call you can do is print head cleaning and make sure you are using genuine kodak ink cartridge and if still the same issue then try and use the printer in standalone mode i.e try and copy something and check if the image quality is still the same or not if yes then it is print head issue and you need to contact kodak tech support they will replace it for you without any charge.......

Prints all yellow, with some blue and black, no brown


the problem is very simple the magenta ink the cartridge is over or the head is been blocked from where the magenta ink comes out,
because red colour requires ---yellow plus magenta(pink)----to make it red.and ----dark yellow plus magenta(pink) -------- for brown colour.

Pictures coming out yellow


The "Print Head" needs cleaning or replacement. It's the part that delivers the ink from the cartridge tank to the paper itself.Mostly caused by air entering the lines and making any residual ink cure.
Most newer printers only ever use 95% of the available ink before reporting tank is empty,and will not allow any printing to resume, preventing air being introduced to empty lines in the head.



Without Removing Anything

There's commercial products available, I guess a bit like using a head cleaning cassette in your VCR - I Have not tried any of these yet.

Use an empty ink cartridge Refilled with hot water and run the print head cleaning function.
( Dont worry , The paper will absorb the minute amount of water being dispersed.)

If that fails you should remove the print head cartridge most are pretty easy ,
LexMark X1150 X1185 and other similar models with the sensor strip running through the cartridge instructions are located at the following FixYA topic
http://www.fixya.com/support/t181337-piece_fallen_out_printer

Immerse it in warm-to hot water for a while or try using rubbing alcohol or similar Non-solvent based liquid.
Inspect the small rectangle shaped metal print head & surrounding copper track for dried ink , remove any with very gentle wiping taking care not to damage anything.


If it's beyond cleaning it will have to be replaced .Try ebay or the local print shop.

There may be a release lever for the print head assembly which would allow you to remove the print head and clean the excess ink from it. If it appears to get better the more pages you print it may be just a matter of time and lots of pages before it cleans itself.
Try running the print head cleaning utility multiple times to help reduce the amount of ink on the print head. This could take quite a few times before it gets better.
