Assuming the cartridge isn't empty remove it from the printer and run the ink feed under a hot water tap. You should see the water change colour when the ink starts to flow. Dry it off carefully and reinstall in your printer.

I had fully-refilled the ink into the CISS tank of my printer (CANON IP1980) however, the only colors that went out were magenta and yellow only. no black or cyan. the ink from the CISS tank did flow into...


You could try a head cleaning or a deep cleaning. You can find them in your printer properties under maintenance. After a few cleanings, try a test page. Keep cleaning and trying a test page until it prints like it should. If it never prints black and/or cyan, the print head is either seriously plugged or damaged.

NOT PRINTING BLUE INK


Sounds like the cyan print head is clogged or you are out of cyan ink. You can try running cleaning cycles with your printer or you can try to clean the print head yourself. To clean it yourself you will need dry paper towels and papers towels moistened with warm water. First rub the print head with the wet paper towel, then press the cartridge into the dry paper towel to see the three color bars (a good print head will have three solid fat color bars). Then you can try resting the print head on the wet paper towel for about a minute to get the ink to flow out (do this on a surface that you don't care about, ink stains). Then rub and blot the print head on the dry paper towel. Continue until the cyan flows again (if after 2-3 tries it isn't flowing you probably won't get it flowing). If you go to a Cartridge World store they have equipment to get print heads flowing again and they should clean it for you.

My printer has stopped printing from the cyan ink


Hi, did you let the ink cartridge dry out completely before inserting a new cyan cartridge???

If this is the case you may have a bit of trouble getting the ink through the printhead...you have to persevere with deep cleaning and/or head cleaning...
if that does not work you may need a new printhead...which is usually dearer than a new printer...
I would also take the printhead out and clean the contacts with Isopropol alcohol...do not get finger prints on the contacts...that will stop it very quickly...
just a thought...did you remove the sealing tape over the airholes and bottom feeder hole on the cartridge???
if the airholes are sealed the cartridge pulls a vacuum and the ink will not flow...
hope this helps you...
cheers

My cyan ink won't print. i have tried EVERYTHING.


The printer cannot use photo inks like Photo Cyan or Photo Magenta. Be sure to use "BCI-6 Cyan" in position 5 - farthest to the right.

No black ink printing


Ah, solved already. Cleaning the black print head a few more times did it for me.

Cyan will not print


Try replacing the cartridge. Sometimes they do get clogged and won't clear no matter how many cleaning cycles you run.

Cyan & magenta ink will not flow + yellow ink full but error message says almost empty


(Use new carts for this procedure because it consumes some ink!)

press menu then start mono (blue copy button) then fourtimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start mono (blue). machine will refresh ink within tubes and print head and do some cleaning. when in mantenance mode again press 7 then 6 then 3 then start mono. machine will do a power cleaning. afterwards leave the mode by pressing 9 then 9. Run a quality test print by pressing ink etc.

If you cant see any mag and/or cyan the ph is clogged or dryed out. It has to be replaced then.

If you can see some of the blocks do the power cleaning (7/6/3)again.

BTW: Do use only DYE ink for all brother printers! The pigment ink will clogg the micro filter infront of the nozzels. When running machine with generic ink print a quality test sheet once a week!
