SOURCE: ink levels show emptry.

Need one plastic plate that you don't care much about, or a plastic disposable plate.
Tear off one section from a paper towel roll and roll it up into about a 1-inch diameter roll.
Flatten the roll
Soak the flattened roll in warm water
Lay the flattened roll down on the plate
Place the nozzle area of the ink cartridge directly against the wet paper towel
Fold the flattened roll as needed to support the ink cartridge so it stands upright.

The trick here is to make sure the cartridge is supported upright so the nozzles come in full contact with the wet towel surface.
The wet towel acts as a wick to soften and draw out the ink.
After awhile, you shoudl see a kaleidoscope of colors on the paper towel. This indicates the nozzles have been opened up and the ink is flowing. Try to print and see what happens.
Repeat as needed.

Tried to print something today after not using printer for about 3 weeks. First go all colours were present but streaky. Did the nozzle alignment but on testing found that Magenta was completely missi


Hi Mandy
1) confirm there is ink in the magenta cartridge first - by removing it from printer and looking through the ink 'window'.
If you can't see the ink level, it's either empty or very close to it. If so, replace the cartridge.
2) If ink level looks ok, install it back in printer then set out a full page of magenta (or red) background or large graphic and print few pages on high print quality setting until the magenta starts to print. This works better than printhead cleaning/deep cleaning because it wastes less ink.
3) If it still doesn't print red after 2-3 pages, the printhead is blocked. Take it out and rinse under hot water tap. Keep washing it until only clean water is coming out. Shake any water off then DRY the electrical contacts really well. Don't install a wet printhead back in printer - or you may damage it. Run one or two deep cleans and print a nozzle check. With bit of luck all colours will work now...

good luck!

Prints in blue and green ; all ink cartridges are


Dear Dahcota; If it has a single color cartridge, there are three components inside the cartridge-red, green, blue, and all colors are a superimposition of these 3 basic colours RGB in different proportions. It looks like the red component has run dry. So, what you get is the color without the red component. If its showing all cartridges as being full, sometimes these levels shown are inaccurate. Try changing the entire color cartrigde or red component, then see if you still have the same problem. What I am not sure is if the red cartridge is a separate entity . If the red is separate, and changing it does not improve things, the connection in the printer might be faulty. Go to www.hp.com and browse for the correct make ask them online there, It should really be okay, once you have replaced the red or entire color cartridge is it is a single unit with all 3 colours

Ink low indication on HP Deskjet F4288


hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? Friend the problem is the ink level dropped 3/4 after printing 7 pages and low exclamation mark in red. Friend it is the real deal since you are using a free ink cartrdge with your printer that ink is only a sample one and the content of that cartridge is not full thats why it dropped to empty in just a few pages of printing. It just appear full in the ink level monitoring since the printer auto detects new cartridge on the tank. It is just so You need to buy a new ink cartridge the one with the full content.and i'm sure it will last a long time since it is already full. thats all friend good luck hope i helped you.

Says replace ink cartridge


I have replaced my ink cartridges numerous times and they are still full. It keeps telling me the ink cartridge needs replacing. It won't print and the red light keeps blinking. I have disconnected the usb and the power. I have only had this printer for about a year. It won't scan or print. Its a Kodak Easyshare 5300. The HomeCenter AiO is disconnected so how do I contact anyone from Kodak?

Brother mfc 420 cn does not print red color


do you use generic ink? If yes, the generic ink might have clogged the ph (valve stucks inside because of lack of additives!).

Anyway, do this:
(use near full level ink carts!)
make sure carts are placed well and are secured.
Press menue then start bk copy then fortimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink in tubes and ph and do some cleaning cycles. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. ,achine runs a power purge. when fisihed press 9 then 9 to leave the mode. press ink etc. to run a quality test print.
If you still cant see any magenta, the ph is defective and needs replacing!
