It is a new original cartridge?

or u don't use it for a long time?

try to use a tissue press on the nozzle to see whether there r 3 colours on the tissue if there r means that u cartridge is spoil need to change a new cartridge.

if only can see red colour means that ur cartridge nozzle block maybe not use it for a long period, u may use a bit of warm water to clear it.
put some warm water in a container just 3-5cm high make sure the water do not higher than the circuit board on the cartridge, put the cartridge in for 5 to 10 min, use a tissue to clean up the nozzle and check the colour. most of the cases can be solve by using this way.

My Canon Pixma ip6000d isn't printing any images or text. There is plenty of black ink, I ran the tests for alignment and nozzle check. The paper feeds through fine and it sounds and acts as tho


Did you try a test print. Most printers have a option to set the ink color, this is done when your computer asks you if you want to print. Look for an options tab and search for ink color options pick black only and try a test print. The test print is done on printer set up. If all else fails try the manual it usually has a troubleshoot section. Oh yes make sure you have the correct usb port some are configured at a lower level ( mine has 2 different ones a 2.0 and a 3.0 the 3.0 is blue when you look inside of it) my 2.0 port wouldn't set up my printer I had to use the 3.0 port. Hope it helps you some!

New Cartridges - not all color ink printing!


It sounds that the ink inside the cartridge has partly dried up.

This can happen to my printer when I don't use it for a couple of months too.

Hope this helps!

HP Deskjet 990cxi Printer NOT printing B/W, only red.


To customer of HP deskjet 990cki: I purchased the HP photosmart Plus B209 ~ January 2010. 3 months into, I have learned that when the color ink that you don't use evaporates, the black ink will not work at all, no matter what you adjust or clean.To make it work you have to purchase more color ink...on & on & on..$$$$. Neither HP nor Best Buy will refund my investment. Spoken with HP customer service reps. in the Philippines & Canada both being outside of the US. NO customer satisfaction. No refunds. I suggest Boycotting both corps.

All my photos have a heavy red tint


Be sure you have plenty of all the different inks and that the print head is clean and functioning well. If you are low on one of the inks the colors can be off.

If you have plenty of ink then on of the color print heads may be clogged and preventing that ink from flowing. A few cleaning cycles will hopefully fix this.

Also realize that different inks will render different color reproduction and will especially look different from what you see on your computer, unless you have special software to correct for this.

Colors are not printing out true.


I replaced the Office Max ink substitute with an original Canon ink. This did not help. I decided this problem most probably had to be a printer head issue, so I gave up and bought a new printer instead.

My priter prints blue lines across all colored pictures or text.Any Idea?When printing black only,there is no problem.any colored - blue lines are added.I did reintal the drivers,used old and new but...


Have you tried cleaning the print heads or replacing the color cartridge? where as it it printing black fine it leads me to believe the problem lies in the color cartridge. my first recomendation would be to run the clean print head wizard in the printer settings and if that does not work then replace your color cartridge.
