Sometimes the compatible carts don't fit right, the inkpad on the bottom is too far up in the cart. You need to buy extras and try swapping them out before going for more expensive repairs. Do a couple cleaning cycles each time you try new carts.

I have installed new HP cartridges (black and colour)but on testing I get no colours except magenta violet and red!! Peter Fairclough


You must set to clean the print head. Yellow ink doesn't work. Try to clean the print head with some hot water, untill you'll see yellow ink came out. Time to time you must print some color files do not dry the ink.

My printer keeps saying "print head is not installed. Install the print head." I only purchased black ink this time and I put it inside but it still says that there is no ink. Do I have to buy the colour...


Hello, Jordanreinha -

You will need to install a color cartridge, too.

Oddly enough, with color printers, both the black and color ink/s are used to print black. Go figure?

Best wishes.

My hp deskjet 1280 will not print yellow


Hello, this is Harry from www.BusinessSpread.co.uk.
We had the exact same problem when printing, we used 3 different 78 colour ink cartages and they all said 100% full but did not work. We then had a look at the dates on the box and they were all expired so when buying ink from anywhere even PC world or Curry’s always look at the expiry date.
Today I went to PC world and purchased a new 78 ink which said expires July 2011 and it works perfectly fine.

Colour Ink Jet Cartridges emptying during a black ink print run


Hi,
If you go to your printer properties, there should be a setting whereby you have to select the option to "PRINT USING BLACK CARTRIDGE ONLY". Make sure this option is selected, otherwise your printer will use ALL colors even if you only print black.
Let me know if you need any further assistance.
Best wishes,

I have a used C60. I have replaced both ink cartridges with Epson cartridges. When printing in color, the colors are not accurate. For example, red comes out yellow. Also, there are lines running through...


Hi there. The reason for your problem is that the colour cartridge contains cyan, magenta and yellow ink, plus a black cartridge of course. All the other myriad colours are produced by mixing these four basic colours. So, if you print red, it requires ink from both the magenta and yellow cartridges. Thus if your red produces a yellow print, it means your magenta is not printing. This can be due to a number of reasons, mainly an empty or faulty magenta cartridge or blocked magenta print nozzles.

If you wish me to help you with sorting out the lack of magenta, please post a new comment to this effect.

My printer wont print black colour on pics or word docs


Hi, sounds like a dodgy ink cartridge. I would purchase a new black cartridge and fit and try that. Refilling epson cartridges isn't a good idea, if you can't afford originals, but compats instead of refilling them. a good place to buy is www.choicestationery.com I've never had any problems with their carts.

Refilled ink cartridges problem colour


this is not a printer problem, you have a problem with colour cartridge! u can fix this in 2 diferent way: 1. replace the colour cartridge with new one, or gently clean the nozzle cartridge with a wet tissue until the cyan colour mark a line on the tissue just like the others colours: yellow and magenta. maybe must repeat this several times.

I cannot print but i have only the black cartridge but i dont have the yellow cyan ang midget


Most modern printers use some colour when printing Black and therefore will not print if ANY ink cartridge is showing as empty.

Unless your printer has a setting for using Black ink only (this is not the same as printing a black and white document), then you will need to purchase and install the colour cartridges before printing can take place. The good thing about this is that very little colour ink is used when printing black and white documents - so they should last a long time.

Good luck.

Hp psc 1510 - only want black ink


Hi Manavoc,

I will explain you the cause for it.

It prints in yellow first and then override with black for better quality. This is the reason your color ink gets empty.
