HP A636 will not print yellow; tricolor cartridge is new


  • Align the print cartridge.
The printer automatically aligns the print cartridge after a new one is installed. You can also align the print cartridge at other times to ensure optimal print quality. Indications that you need to align the print cartridge manually include borderless prints with white space
along an edge, colors not printing satisfactorily, or poor print quality.


To align the print cartridge from the printer
  1. Load a sheet of HP Advanced Photo Paper in the input tray.
  2. Touch the Setup icon to display the Setup menu. For more information, see "Setup Menu" on page 16.
  3. Touch Cartridge.
  4. Touch Align Cartridge and follow the prompts.

Clean the print cartridge automatically.
If the printed pages are missing lines or dots or contain ink streaks, the print cartridge might be low on ink or need to be cleaned.
CAUTION: Clean the print cartridge only when necessary.
Unnecessary cleaning wastes ink and shortens the life of the cartridge.

  • Clean the cartridge.
Follow these steps to clean the cartridge automatically:
To clean the print cartridge from the printer,
  1. Touch the Setup icon to display the Setup menu. For more information, see "Setup Menu" on page 16.
  2. Touch Cartridge.
  3. Touch Clean Cartridge and follow the prompts.
If the documents are still missing lines or dots after cleaning, replace the print cartridge.

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.

I have an HP Photosmart C3180 printer color ink issue. Instead of printing yellow its printing pink. I've cleaned the head multiple times and the ink cartridge is brand new. Please advise. Thanks!


If what you're saying is still the result after cleaning everything up, there must already be something wrong with the printhead because the printheads are the one's that are responsible for the mixture of the ink cartridges.
Try calling HP Tech Support. They might still be able to replace the printheads for you.

WHILE TEST PRINT CYAN INK NOT SHOWING WHAT SHOULD I DO SIR


This issue will only occur if an ink cartridge(s) is or was installed inthe wrong position (slot) in the machine. When a cartridge is installed, the ink tube system is filled with the ink from the cartridges, to prepare the machine for printing. If the cartridge is inthe wrong position the tube will fill with the wrong color.


NOTE: If you just installed or replaced the ink cartridges and your printed documents are missing colors please refer to the solution - I just installed or replaced my ink cartridge and my printed documents aremissing colors. What can I do? Blank


To resolve this issue you will need to clean the print head.


NOTE: It may require 10 to 15 cleanings to clean the ink tubes and print head. During the cleaning process, the ink in the cartridge(s) will be consumed. Additional ink cartridges may be required to completethe cleaning process.


1. First verify the position of the ink cartridges:


a. Open the ink cartridge cover and check to make sure the ink cartridges are in the correct order.


b. Starting from the left side, the correct order is Black, Yellow, Cyan(blue), and Magenta (red).


- If the ink cartridges are installed in the correct order, close the ink cartridge cover and continue to STEP 2.


- If the ink cartridges are not in the correct order, remove the ink cartridges that are installed in the wrong position by pressing down on the release lever(s), located above the ink cartridge and remove the cartridge(s) from the machine.


Next, reinstall the ink cartridge(s) in the correct position in the machine by gently pushing the cartridge in until it clicks.


When all the cartridges are installed, close the ink cartridge cover.


2. After closing the ink cartridge cover, the LCD will prompt - Did youchange XXXX (XXXX = the color) This message will be displayed for ink cartridge that was removed. Press the - (Minus Key for No). This willkeep accurate data of how much ink is left in the cartridge.


1. Press the INK key.


2. Press OK to select Test Print.


3. Press OK to select Print Quality.


4. Press the COLOR START key.


5. Review the Check Sheet. The colors on the Check Sheet should be in a specific order: Black, yellow, Cyan (Blue) and Magenta (red).


a If the colors on the Check Sheet are in the correct order and are notmissing any dashes, press + (Plus Key for Yes) on the key pad and continue to STEP 7.


b If the colors on the Check Sheet are not in the correct order, are missing dashes or blank or a color other than Black, Yellow, Cyan or Magenta printed press - (Minus Key for No) on the key panel and continueto STEP 6.


6. The machine will need to perform cleanings to flush out the incorrectcolor or dried ink from the ink tubes and print head.


a. The LCD will ask you BLACK OK. If black is fully printed and is the correct color, press + (Plus Key for Yes). If it#s blank, missing dashes or is the incorrect color, press - (Minus Key for No).


b. The LCD will ask you COLOR OK. If any of the 3 colors (yellow, cyan (blue), and magenta (red) are fully printed and are the correct color, press + (Plus Key for Yes). If it#s blank, missing dashes or is the incorrect color, press - (Minus Key for No).


c. The LCD will say START CLEANING + for YES and - for NO. Press + for YES to start cleaning. The machine will go through a cleaning cycle that will take approximately one to two minutes.


d. After the cleaning is completed, the LCD will say PRESS START. Pressthe BLACK START key. This will print out the print quality check sheet again for you to check and see if your print quality issue has been resolved or not


NOTE: If you wait 1 minute after the cleaning cycle is completed, the display will return to date and time. You will need to go back to STEP 3 to print the Print Quality Check Sheet again.


e. If the ink color order is correct and all of the dashes are present, press + on the key pad to select YES and continue to STEP 7.


If the colors on the Check Sheet are not in the correct order, are missing dashes or blank or a color other than Black, Yellow, Cyan or Magenta printed press - key to select NO. Repeat the cleaning process byfollowing STEPS 6a through 6d. You may have to perform this procedure up to 15 times in order to clean the ink tubes and print head


NOTE: During the cleaning process, the ink in the cartridge(s) will be consumed. Additional ink cartridges may be required to complete the cleaning process.


7. Test by printing the document that had the reported problem (wrong color printing).

The printer won't print out any of the reds in my images, even when the colour cartridge has just been replaced, and prints any red areas in yellow instead.


Hi is this a new printer? If you've just installed a new color ink, it would prompt you to align the cartridge or print some test page.. If the RED doesnt show on the test page, then try to perform maintenance on it.. Like Clean cartridge or clean print head.. it may be clogged.. if it still does this, try changing the color ink.. If you color ink is from a stock, it may have dried up.. if you bought it just days ago, ask for a replacement.. If all has been done, it maybe the printer itself..

Hope this helps.. :D

My HP C4480 printer is printing red instead of black


My documents were printing red instead of black so I installed a new black cartridge. No it did not solve the problem. Yes I did run the utility to clean the heads. I finally went into the Printer Properties, advanced settings and set Print in Grayscale to Black Ink Only and it worked. You may need to turn off other settings related to photo printing.

New tri-color ink cartridge prints only red


Are the Jets clean and unobstructed? Depending on printer model, have you cleaned your print heads? Consider also it may be a defective cartridge.

PIXMA ip3000 printer is printing yellow instead of red


Clean the ink cartridge contacts with a moist tissue or glass/LCD cleaner clothe. Do the same on the printer cartridge holders. Do this gently and carefully avoiding further damages to your printer and it's cartridges.
Declog print heads using denatured alcohol for an hour or two or head cleaning agents available at any ink refilling stations. You can use a suction device included in the refill kit.
Try using another cartridge of the same type by borrowing from a friend, relative or member of the family and see if the problem still occurs.
Try removing the printer driver, restart computer then reinstall driver so that the default settings will be restored. If it still exist, you can google for iptool software and try resetting it's EPROM.
If the problem still exists, you need to go to the nearest service center.

Red and Yellow not Printing at all.


Did you use third party carts?

If yes, buy original brother ink carts and do the cleaning cycle again. If you are lucky the printhead isnt clogged due to the third party ink which has not the additives and glycerin needed for the printhead to run without probs.

 

In case the head is clogged there is nothing more what you can do. Sorry!  A replacement might costs more than a new mfc 440cn!
