Hi,
Just some routine checks. Are you sure you have not run out of ink in any of the cartridges? You do not say your printer type or model. Have a visual check if the cartridges are made of opaque plastic, are they empty? Try and find out how to run a test page for your printer (check the manual) and make sure there are at least three colours (pink, blue and yellow) as well as black.

Also, this may seem like a silly question, but stranger things have happened... Are you printing on white paper?

If you found these tips helpful, please vote. Good Luck!

Hi,
It seems your yellow color is not function correctly. Need to check yellow color feed and its linkage to deliver ink to your paper. Looks like it almost clog up that cause very light color in your paper. Again please check completely your color feeds.

Either the ink you are using is not going to give the color you want, or you have print heads that are blocked.

Color doesn't print in true color.


It may be the printer color settings in your printer properties. May be set to draft. Change it to best or normal.
Go to Control Panel> Printers and Faxes> right click on your printer's icon, go down to properties. There unerd advance, you can do a head cleaning. Under color management, set it to automatic.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Canon MP 730 prints wrong color tones


I was having a similar problem-- what was happening was the print cartridge head seemed to be letting the colors leak into each other. (the science behind this is beyond me!)-- I noticed that instead of being cyan/magenta/yellow, my yellow cartridge had actually turned green, magenta was picking up blue and was turning purple, etc etc. I ended up replacing the printer's printhead and all the color cartridges and then it worked.
You can order printheads online.
Not sure if this fixes the original reason why they got all mixed up in the first place-- if the printer will continue to allow the print head to leak the colors into each other-- but hopefully that's a fixit!

Are you using generic toners or HP branded? Try to reseat the yellow toner. The page counter can't be reset and should not be. This unit uses chips to recognize the toner level. Generic toners don't always have good chips on them.

No Yellow Or Cyan Ink


Hi do the following and hopefully it will help you. If it doesn't then you have a fault carriage or main PCB.

  • Remove ink Cartridge
  • With a soft cloth wipe clean the gold contacts on the carriage unit and the same on the ink cartridge
  • reinstall the ink cartridge
  • Click start
  • Select printers and faxes
  • Right hand click on the printer icon
  • Select Properties
  • Click on Services Tab
  • Click on clean print heads
  • Then click on Prime.
Hopefully this will work

Thanks J
