I have a Canon MX700 and suddenly I began to have problems with the color. I am using Canon ink cartridges but all my color jobs come out with only blue and black, no magenta or yellow. Every time I run...

This worked for me:
Unplug (not just turn off) the printer. Wait at least 20 seconds, then plug it back in. Hold the Feed Switch down, then turn on the printer (continue to hold the Feed Switch down). When the printer finishes cycling the paper feed, release the Feed Switch. Copy anything and it should print. You're good to go.

HP 920c does not print color. I have replaced inks - color & black. When I switch mode to B&W only, all images and text prints. When i switch back to color, only the B&W stuff prints

Try reseating the color cartridge and cofirming that the blue/green tape was completely removed from the back and bottom of the cartridge. Run a head cleaning and if that doesnt correct it then you may have a bad ink cartridge. It is possible that the printer is bad but I find that unlikely.

Stopped printing in color.

Your cartridge nozzel is probably clogged up. Try cleaning the cartridge using cleaning mode on the printer. If cleaning the does solve the problem. You may need a new cartridges.

Can't print BLUE.

I use a clear silicone tube to carefully prime the carts by sucking a dab of ink out of the tiny print holes before installation. I am careful to have a tight seal at the holes to prevent getting too much ink and possibly getting it in my mouth. Make sure each color appears.

Color Quality is not so great anymore

Sounds like the machine needs to be cleaned. Probably a heavy use machine that has quite a bit of ink spray build up on the inside. I would imagine your service station has quite a bit of ink build up in it as well possibly causing the cartridges not to be cleaned like they should. A good cleaning cures most of what ails inkjet printers. We would charge $85 in our shop for complete disassembly down to the metal frame and cleaning.
