Re: New ink cartridge won't work.

Guys I had this problem with black ink. It appears that the internal print head ports were clogged with ink. Try removing the print head and washing it in alcohol- when I did this i had clumps of congealed ink coming out of the tiny ports. The print head has two small screws underneath that I also removed and cleaned the ports inside by use of a syringe and alcohol. After I put the print head back together, dried it and ran an auto alignment - it all seems good now.

SOURCE: colour printing

Check the following thread, it might apply to your problem. and just as a printer can be fooled to show a low level ink, I guess it can happen the other way around.,p342983/Epson-Stylus-Photo-R300-InkJet-Printer.aspx Good luck

SOURCE: Color ink cartridge does not print in full colors

Canon printers do not like the refilled ink cartridges. After having ruined a few printers trying to "save" money. I went back to genuine Canon ink and have never had a problem since.

Colours not printing properly

You need to specifyy what printer you have.

If the jets are part of the cartridge like HP and Lexmark, the clean the contacts on the cartridge and the printer and try again. If no-go, replace the cartridge.

If it has only ink tanks like epson, you need to purge the ink channels that are not working... Magenta and yellow with cleaner and a syringe or sqeeze bulb.

Stopped printing yellow, worked fine yesterday, new cartridge installed, suspect airlock as no yellow at all.

Try taking your yellow cartridge out and giving it a shake. Also make sure you've removed all the plastic tabs from the cartridge, and test to see if there is any colour coming from it by pressing a damp paper towel against where the ink shoots out. If it still doesn't work I would simply return the yellow ink cartridge to where you purchased it for a new one.

Hp Deskjet 845C - Yellow Colour not Printing

I found this post to work for me when yellow was not printing on my HP PSC750 after using 2 cartridges: "Well if you want to damage your printer use alcohol. But if you want to make it work then pull the cartridge from the printer and run hot water on a couple of paper towels leaving alot of hot water in the towels. Put some thing under them to keep them from staining your counter top and then set the cartridge down onto the hotwater towel and let the hot water melt away the dry ink and in minutes you may be printing again if this is what it is. Be sure and use a dry paper towel to wipe off the ecess wet before you reinstall the cartridge."

Canon all in one printer refill ink cartridges

i have just filled my mx 310 with the jet tec refills as instructed....but do not insert the rubber bungs...instead put some celotape over the filling holes... then with a needle...pierce the celotape where the hole is( pin *****).... this set up is now able to breathe as originally designrd. Mine prints fine now this has been done (trial and error), but i might try better quality ink next fill. Its also wise to use glossy paper 230gsm or over for good results.
