My yellow color is not printing. I change cartridge twice, run a few times cleaning process, but no even a dot of yellow color on the paper. What should I do?


Thanks for using FixYa. There are two step-by-step procedures to resolve the issue—

Procedure 1

  1. Turn off the printer and ensure that the print head is at its home location and locked in place as normal;
  2. Power off the printer at the wall or by removing the power cable for at least 20 seconds;
  3. While you restore power to the printer at the wall socket or by reinserting the cable, if the lights come back on straight away, the printer’s power switch was ‘on’ - switch it off and return to step 1;
  4. Hold down the paper-feed button and the button with the ink-drops next to it, and then turn on the printer, still holding the buttons down;
  5. When the paper-out LED flashes, release the buttons;
  6. Press and hold the Cleaning button, until several lights flash - this will take a few seconds then release the button;
  7. The printer will now attempt to reset, including resetting the EEPROM memory and running a short (about 10 seconds) cleaning cycle.

Procedure 2

  1. Turn off the printer and ensure that the print head is at it’s home location and locked in place as normal;
  2. Hold down the paper feed button only;
  3. Turn on the printer;
  4. As the paper feed light starts flashing, release the button;
  5. Immediately hold down the ink-drops button for some 10-20 seconds or until the printer springs into life;
  6. Allow printer to complete its processing then turn it off for a few seconds and turn it again on.

By following any of the above step-by-step procedure, the printer will start printing normally.

Right out of the box, my ML-2510 has a solid red error light

You should install the software prior to connecting the printer, to make sure the provided drivers are ibstalled and not the generic ones that come with Windows.

You just need to reset your drum counter. To do that, open up the printer and hold down the Go button for a few seconds, until the LED lights all light up (the toner, drum, and paper lights all should turn yellow). That should do the trick!

Derrick, Came across something the other day and thought of you even though we know that there are a lot of yellow tanks with bad chips in them.

Lift the ink tank carriage body up and expose the print head, there is a lever to lift up and pull out the print head. Now soak that print head in ammonia for several hours and then rinse it out with a warm water jet, using a water wand or just the faucet head. The print head has a rather large hole with a screen to accept the ink from the tank. You can wipe it off and blow it out using your mouth too, just don't **** on it. Canned air is the way to go and blow the canned air on the bottom too and then wipe the print head forward and to the right on a paper towel damp with rubbing alcohol. Do this until you are getting some yellow color easily. Then reinsert the yellow print head.

Now, put everything back and latch it down. Unplug the printer pulling the cord from the back. Hold the OK and Cancel/reset button down at the same time and reinsert the power cord. Hodl these buttons down for about six seconds until the lights blink or you get a message and then release. Now press and hold the On button down for five seconds. Now, turn the printer off and wait until its finished. Unplug the cord from the back and leave it out for 20 minutes, then reattach the power cord and turn the printer on and print a test page using the menu. See if your yellow is okay now.
