Magenta is not printed

There is no lack of ink, cartridge prints all the three color stripes on a soft paper tissue. Contacts of the cartridge and the printer were carefully cleaned. These procedures were performed several times without any success.

When i try to print a photo i get white stripes across the photo. I bought a new ink cartridge but it didn't help.


White stripes across a print-out usually indicate clogged printer heads: look at your user manual on the cleaning procedures.
You can try cleaning BOTH the Black and Color cartridges heads by gentling cleaning and wiping the heads with clean moist tissue paper/kitchen paper. Also clean and dry the contacts (eg. copper looking printed circuit).
For bad and very dirty print heads, I also use a warm shallow dish of water and wash the head only and then dry off with clean tissue paper.
After re-inserting the cartridge, I suggest that you do a cleaning cycle and alignment and do a test print to ensure that the printing is back to normal.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

Refilled pixma MP210 color cartridge. Now my printer will not print any color at all, only black


Maybe your printer cartridge that has been refilled got ink clogged. You can bring it to the store where you can let them clean it for you. It must be free for cleaning since it was refilled from them. Hope this help.

You can also clean your cartridge by following my instructions below:
BEFORE DOING BELOW INSTRUCTIONS,TRY TO CLEAN YOU CARTRIDGE FIRST USING THE DEEP CLEAN FEATURE OF YOUR PRINTER, THEN USE PRINT NOOZLE CHECK PATTERN.

1. Uninstall your cartridge.
2. Get a tissue paper.
3. Try to put the printer head over a small piece of tissue paper.

If you will see the three colors in the tissue(Cyan-close to blue, Magenta-close to red, and Yellow). It means it was not clogged, the problem is the chip of your color cartridge and needs to be replaced. But if the colors are blur and or nothing appears, it means the printhead of your cartridge is clog. You can proceed to step 4.

4. Try to put a little amount of water in a small piece of tissue paper and soak the printer head for a 2 min. Then remove it after.
5. Wipe the printer head with a dry tissue paper.
6. Reinstall the cartridge back to the printer.
7. Print a 4 basic colors, RED, BLUE, YELLOW and BLACK.
8. Clean the printer using the cleaning feature of your printer.
9. You can use deep cleaning twice. And Print a noozle print.
10. Hope it could help.

Prints only green predominently


Without knowing what printer you have or what things you have tried I can only guess here. It sounds like you need a new cartridge. A color ink cartridge will have 3 colors of ink for most printers...cyan (blue), magenta (purplish-maroon), and yellow. Depending on what you print it is very possible that you could run out of one of the inks before the others. Printing green can be an indication that you are out of magenta ink. The cyan and yellow inks will combine and look green.

You can remove the cartridge and run a tissue over the printhead and see if you see all 3 colors as a quick test. If you only see cyan and yellow, then the magenta is probably empty or dried up. If you see all 3 colors I would reinsert the cartridge and try printing again. It is possible that the magenta was just clogged and you cleaned it with the tissue. If it still doesn't print all colors your best bet is probably to just get a new ink cartridge.

Greenishness output is due to a lack of magenta (cyan and yellow combine to make green). The magenta print head nozzles are probably clogged with ink. Canon would have you buy a new print head ($75 ?). However, you can clean it yourself.
First get out some paper towels or heavy tissue paper (maybe napkins); something that doesn't give off a lot of lint is best. Also get a roll of cloth or rubber tape, duct tape works great. Get a bottle of something like 409 or one of those 'orange' cleaners that you use to clean your counter top. You'll know it is the right type of cleaner when the ink continues to come out of the print head during this procedure.
First you'll need to protect the circuit board area on the back of the print head by covering it with one or more pieces of tape. This is to prevent the cleaning fluid from getting behind the circuit board and shorting it out later when you place the print head back in the printer.
Place the print head straight up as it is in the printer on a folded, flat piece of paper towels while gently pressing down. The remaining ink should begin to appear around the edges of the print head as it is being absorbed. You'll have to continually move the print head to other clean spots on the tissue as it soaks in. The tissue helps by drawing out the ink (capillary action) and by keeping the individual colors from going into the other color nozzles. Make sure that the tissue you place the print head on is always flat and not curled or folded; this could damage the nozzles.
Spray the cleaner into the top of the print head where the cartridges normally reside. I will refer to this as the cartridge reservoir. Spray enough cleaner into the reservoir to cover the round spongy contacts that connect and align with the ink cartridges. This will soak into the print head just like the ink from the cartridges and begin pushing the old ink out the nozzles onto the tissue.
Continue squirting cleaner into the reservoir and moving the print head to clean spots on the tissue until only clear cleaner comes out onto the tissue. For the clogged nozzles this may take quite a while and lots of tissue, but the cost of these supplies is certainly less than the cost of a new print head! Don't run water through the print head!
Now carefully remove the tape and place the print head back in the printer and replace the ink cartridges. You don't have to wait for the cleaning fluid to dry and, in fact, you don't want to. As soon as the ink cartridges are in place the ink will begin flowing through the nozzles. Now run a alignment test and nozzle check to test out the system. Then resume printing those family pics, nudes, charts, etc.
