Color ink catridge

I have just bought a color ink catridge after a few uses I know longer can print color I have checked the printer and it is reading that I still have color ink to use. I have done a printer clean. Still nothing and when I take the cartridge out I can see the ink coming out. What could be the problem?

I just bought 2 new catridges (black & color) but the color ink dosen't print.

I'm not familiar with Lexmark but I think your printer is set only to print on black cartridge (black only option) There's something wrong with the settings. Check the settings, look for the color options.

Ink cartridge not properly installed

I have gone through all the forums but none of them worked...

The correct solution for the problem is the canon printer needs to have both the color and black catridges present in the printer...
So even if you purchased new black catridge only you need to have the old color catridge to be placed in the place of color catridge....

So it will detect the catridges and if any of the one is empty it asks to select black at the time of printing and simply select it you will get a black print...

So make sure both the catridges either empty or full need to be placed to detect the catridges....

I hope it will be helpful.....

Prints are green

it can be due to ,, color catridge contains only green,, since the other colors,, are been used for prior printings,, and the green ink is left in the catridge,, you can check.. make use settings to print in gray scale,, dont use color.. then it should be fine.. but the color cartridge to be replaced

Replaced color cartiage, now only one color prints, red? Help

Try to check the level of your ink in your color catridge maybe is running low or empty then if its empty then remove the catridge then replace another color catridge full of ink then run your printer again. If you successfully installed new ink catridge then it will automatically reset the level of your ink monitor to full.
