SOURCE: Printer will not use cyan

Well I just bought a brand new Kodak 8500 and purchased a few boxes of the 25 1400 print kits after getting it I thought it would be as easy as the Kodak Easyshare 4x6 printers BUT thought different after trying my first box of 25. I got 10 good prints out of 25 due to paper jams after 2 passes. I did the alcohol thing on the LED and sensor and that worked good for 1 full box of 25.
I then loaded a box of 50 8500 ribbon and paper same problem more paper jams after 2 passes wasting more $$$.
I did the whole routine as stated above and after taking the whole darn thing apart I did 1 more mod. I turned the potentiomter 1/2 of a turn but then drilled a small 1/2 hole in the forward plate where that pot is and reamed it out to over 3/4 on and inch thus if you need to make further adjustments you do not have to take the whole thing apart again, just the lower front cover. Because when the front cover is removed with the 5 screws and not 4 the whole darn circuit board falls out and its hard to get the plastic protective strips covering the top and bottom to align back up to slide it back in place. SO with the hole drilled there you do not have to bother with that ever again. After doing the les than 1/4 of a turn I still had a problem and yes I did put it all back together,
BUT at this point I removed the lower front cover and had access
to the pot again and moved it another 1/4 of an inch clockwise installed the 2 screws tried again and I ran a whole box of 50 without a problem.
I don't know if I'll have anymore problems but If I do I'll post it.

SOURCE: My black is really faded,

The PHOTO mode is for printing grayscale photographs. Printed letters using PHOTO mode may appear faint because PHOTO mode is optimized for halftones. See if there is a TEXT or LETTER print mode, and try printing on that setting. If printed letters are still faint, you may have to go into ADVANCED PRINTER PREFERENCES, and see if the TONER SAVE mode is on. If it is, turn TONER SAVE off. Also, try changing the DPI image density, or try other adjustments in the ADVANCED PRINTER PREFERENCES MODE.

SOURCE: Printer will not use cyan

This sort of thing is usually due to dust/dirt on the sensor that detects the gaps in the dye-sub film. Half of the sensor pair is in cover that flips up to replace the ribbon, the other half is under the plastic bar. I clean them with a dry Q-tip or blow them off with canned air.

Worn print head. And for what they charge for a stinking print head you can get a new printer for less with a warranty to boot!

My HP Officejet Pro K550 is not printing the cyan (blue) ink. It has a new cartridge. I've run print quality pages and configuration pages -- no cyan shows up. I cleaned the printheads and no c


Do a test print...
assuming you have done multiple print head cleans... if it fails to print ANY cyan, I'd guess the print head is dead... although to be honest im not an expert with this hp printer. if that is the case, it probably isnt worth repairing.
If it does print some cyan, just missing, you may be able to find info, sorry, I cant help you there, on accessing the service or maintenance mode and doing a higher level clean, if your printer supports that.
As a last option, disassembly and soaking the bottom of the print head in cleaning solution /water... overnight, without getting ANY water on any contacts, then re running print cleans.

good luck

in my exp, again, not with this printer, mind you, if a print head fails to print ANY ink for a given colour, the print head is usually faulty.

Hope this info helps

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

You could try a head cleaning or a deep cleaning. You can find them in your printer properties under maintenance. After a few cleanings, try a test page. Keep cleaning and trying a test page until it prints like it should. If it never prints black and/or cyan, the print head is either seriously plugged or damaged.

Suspected clogged blue ink tube


most of the time, the print head need to be replaced for your case... but there are cases whereby it's the ink cart that causes the ink clogged.. you can try replacing the cyan ink and do another round of cleaning.. but chances are slim...
