My Xerox 8400 is printing the wrong colors. Where it's red, it's printing a brown shade and where it should be grey, it's printing green. My logo is grey and red and it's printing all grey, but not the...


Try printing a light stripes test page (Troubleshooting, print quality problems, troubleshooting print quality page).

If you do not appear to have many missing jets but the colours are all just wrong it may be that the ink has gone stale. Run a couple of head cleans and you should see the colours start to improve. If it is getting better, all you can do is keep running head cleans until you have replenished all the ink in the printhead well.

This problem is common in situations where a lot of black and white printing is done, with very little colour.
Alternatively, it could be that your wiper/cleaning blade is not cleaning the head properly and is smearing the different coloured inks across the head, or possibly that your printhead is leaking colours but I think the first solution should solve your problem.
Hope this helps.

My HP printer is printing colours in a pink shade, can you please help.


Printers usually have three PRIMARY colours: YELLOW, PINK, BLUE.

So, if you have no YELLOW or BLUE ink, what's left is PINK.

When I print in black form a Kyocera Mita FS-C5016N printer the ink looks smduge. Do you have any suggestions/solutions for this?


It could be a fuser, drum, developer, or transport belt problem among other things. The FS-C5016N is an old model color printer and if the maintenance kit has not been replaced it probably should be. THe maintenance kit contains the items above along with a few others.

I have just fitted new cartridges although it was only the colour one which needed renewing I thought! However it wuld only print out in red/pink shades so I changed the black cartridge to be on the safe...


I have personally encountered similar problem in my work. There is no problem with your printer, No need to go to your suppliers yet.

Sometimes when either of the inks overflow at the nuzzle, it gets absorbed to an extent into another ink compartment. So that colour affected now prints another colour; the colour that has crept into its compartment, Sometimes it is serious at other times is not. If not serious, usually, after a few solid colour prints the colour affected returns to normal.

I do not know how much of a technical person you are, but I will give you the solution to returning that yellow printing red back to printing truly yellow. Bring out your colour cartridge. Peel off the seal covering top. You will see the holes through which in is fed into it. Get a clean handkerchief, fold it and place over the top of the cartridge. Hold it over a bowl or something. Now place your mouth over the top with the handkerchief in between and blow hard. Ink will discharged at the nuzzle. Clean off the ink. (At the nuzzle do not rub only dab). Now press a piece of folded tissue to the nuzzle firmly. It should be blotted with ink:- red, blue, yellow. If any colour is missing you may need to repeat the procedure. Once you get the three colours back, the issue is resolved.

Colors are not printing the acutal color


It all depends on the meaning of 'not properly'.

Try creating a document with four different squares, or words, of these colours: yellow, magenta, cyan and black. If all of them print (albeit not with the correct shades) it is probably an ICM driver error. But my guess is that only one of those four colors will print badly, due to a defective color cartridge.
The OKI 5150 makes all perceivable colours using cyan, magenta, yellow and black toners, so if one of these malfunctions, the resulting colors will lack the required shade of, say, yellow, and will appear to be "wrong". The yellow colour itself, of course, would simply disappear (the "yellow" you use might actually be 95% yellow and 5% cyan; then the "yellow" square will be printed as a very light shade of cyan, while the other colors - say, 95% magenta and 5% yellow - will turn out almost exact).

Try with the color test and replace any failing cartridge; if all four (almost) pure colours do print incorrectly, it's unlikely to be a cartridge problem, and we'll have to dig deeper.

Kyocera FS-C5016N


when you open the left cover you will see some green plastic things. If you pull these towards the left they will clean print heads and charge coronas.
If this does not fix the problem the you will have to remove the dev and drum units from the machine.
The print head sits on top of the drum unit and can be levered off with the three tabs gently lifted.
the entire print head can be remove once the black cover has been unhitched from the sides.
The print heads are not screwed in and what ever you do DO NOT TOUCH THE SCREWS on the print heads as they are only for density adjustment
