Why is my Canon Pixma 4820 suddenly leaving lighter lines through color pictures.


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!

SLOW PRINTER


You have a cartridge problem.

This condition is typically caused by one of the cartridges failing. Try removing the black cartridge and printing (not copying) a test page. If this prints at near normal speed the black cartridge is at fault and should be replaced. If the printer still prints slowly then put the black cartridge back in and remove the color cartridge, then print a page. Replacing the cartridge that causes the slow printing with a fresh cartridge will resolve the issue.

Please take out the new cartridges and re-position them correctly i.e. color cartridge on the left and black cartridge on the right seating. Check that you hear a click sound when the cartridge is placed in the seating. Print a test page. Then switch off the printer for some time. Re start the printer and now carry out the gray scale printing.

Just put new color cartridges in and tested print and it showed all color bars however when i ask it to print it does not print out anything in black


You didn't say what brand/model of printer you are using, but a lot of printers nowadays have a color cartridge(s) and a separate black cartridge. Perhaps the black cartridge needs to be replaced, too?

Hi! The problem will surely be on the printer head. It may have reached it's break point that when it performs a larger print outs it fails on the half. You can replace the head itself but I strongly suggest that you purchase a new one for optimum performance. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Hp officejet 6110 not printing with black ink


Hi lilacky-

Here are some HP support links that might be helpful... and a couple questions to consider.

Q: Is your new cartridge one of these listed below?
"The HP Officejet 6100 series and HP Digital Copier Printer 410 products use the print cartridges listed below:
* HP 56 black print cartridge
* HP 57 tri-color print cartridge
* HP 58 photo cartridge (replaces the HP 56 black print cartridge for six-ink photo printing)" info from: Installing a Print Cartridge
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00004340&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&rule=12548&product=79477 Is your new cartridge a refilled cartridge? Some times those have special challenges. Has your cartridge been sitting a while in the box, maybe in a warm spot? Some times even new cartridges dry out a little. Was your old cartridge low or completely gone? Just as a test, if you put it back in your printer does the old cartridge work? Any printer error messages? Can you print a test page or an alignment page for your black cartridge? These might be too many questions but here are some HP support links with some How To information for getting more answers. Please let me know if any of these are helpful. see also: Slow or No Response from Printer

If the color cartridge doesn't print the color bars on the alignment page (either, redish pink, yellow or blue) then the alignment process will not finish. Same for the black. If the black cartridge is printing ok, then replace the color cartridge and try this again...
