Question about Printers & Copiers
Hi there! when i print a photo, the colors are all bluish. i cleaned
the head and then deep cleaned again but to no avail, after
putting it to nozzle check the printer does not print the yellow colors
please help me. all the ink tanks are full. are there any other way to clean the head perhaps manually by taking out the printer unit head.
thanks in advance
What printer do you have???? It sounds like the yellow part of the head is blocked or an air bubble. New cartridge or refilled or do you do your own. Need more info to help you. Manual clean by you may be needed. Cleaning with proper solution and cotton tips where cartridge contacts heads/ points may solve issue.

Exact same problem. Tried turpentine. It did not dissolve the ink completely. Water clearly doesnt work but i deduced the ink is coloured oil cuz soap seems to dissolve it a bit when i washed my hands.
ALso tried denatured spirit (ethanol) to no avail. Guess it is not covalent enough. Higher alcohols might be good. Im surprised turpentine dint work given that it is a paint thinner.

I have Epson R230 (Inkjet printer). Sometimes my some color doesn't work. All tanks full. Maybe this head problem or software problem. Some one tell me please. I hate Ink printers...

hope u r fine. yes my printer is atached to a pc. thanks for forwarding my prob to the canon and also for keeping my little secret ;) the solution what u r giving me seems to give a kick but i guess i might not be doing it in a right way. apropos! i have come to learn that isoprophyl alcohol helps in unblocking the heads, is it right? if then what is it, an alcohol or a chemical?
should i go for it?
dear lilac, i will be going out of station tomorrow and will be back on 23rd feb, i can only fiddle with my printer on the 24th. meanwhile dont give up for me plleeaaaasssseeee. i will try to check my mails on the move but i doubt if i get a cybercafe where i am going. i will definately get in touch with u when i'm back. i dont know how this fixya.com system works but just in case then here is my mail add : email@example.com
