I have replaced the cartridge cleaned the nozzle heads but my photos are a funny fuzzy colour. It is about 18mts old and hasn't been used much Thanks

It's a EPSON printer, you have to use it at least twice a month, otherwise the ink on the print heads will dry and clog them. If the printer cleaning process doesn't solve the issue, you'll have to take it to the service center to get the print heads replaced.

We have a HP Colour Laser Jet 3600n. We have

nope...... the problem as you rightly poit out is the cartridges, most refills are poor quality and dont last, but the real ones are expensive but very rarely cause issues. If one colour is dodgy the entire colour process fails, print a square of each colour to determine which colour cart is the issue and complain to seller, 99.9% of print quality issues with these HP's is due to non gen toner....not much you can do, expensive is colour printer fullstop.

Just bought CANON #30 cartridge. print quality terrible

sometimes cartridges are bad brand new right out of the box, if you pull out the cartridge and flip it over there is a spring loaded door you can open to see the drum. If you see streaks or a white powder haze on it, take it back to where you bought it and exchange it.

My printer has suddenly started printing terrible quality photos

It's possible that your cartridges are leaking into the printhead and cross polluting the other colours or there is a problem with the parking pad where the printhead "rests" when not in use.

I'd recommend removing your cartridges and checking for any ink leaks on these and/or puddles of ink in the printhead.

Then check the parking pad for any puddling of ink...

Given that you have a CX6600, which is now quite an old model, you may have a clogged waste ink tube and this is causing cleaning cycles to expiate ink into the parking pad but not actually draw it away, thus soiling the underside of the printhead.

Resolving this is not easy but involves a suitable inkjet cleaning solution (ammoniated windex is recommended in the USA) and leaving this in the parking pad to work at any clogging. It's likely to take a few days and repeated application of cleaning fluid but if a clogged waste pump is the issue this should eventually clear it.

One other possible cause is a dead pump.. If that's the case, it's time for a new printer as it's just not worth fixing.

Hope that gives some ideas.

Use original inks. Try reinstalling the drivers. Should all that fail, you may need to get it serviced or replaced if under warranty.

Printing photos

its ok I solved it! I didn't realise that all the photo cartridge does is gloss over the colour picture produced by the colour cartridge. I simply had to replace the colour cartridge which had run out, so now its all working perfectly!!
