Too much red in the pictures

When I print my pictures, they are too red. I have recently been buying refillable cartridges. Could this sbe the problem?

    I just copied a picture rather than printing it from the computer, and it was perfect. So I am now wondering if the problem lies with the computer, not the printer. What do you think, and what would I do about this?

Yes, you are right. Refilling the cartridge is the main cause for the problems like this. So avoid such cartridges and use hp genuine cartridge. If you still have the problem after using the genuine cartridge contact me again.

    hi,



    so as far as i understand, you are trying to print a picture from your computer. Am I correct?



    try with a different image.



    try to make a print of a text file from applications like notepad or from ms word.



    Thank you

I recently posed a question about how to remove and clean a print head.


Cleaning wont hurt - but the heads may be worn out after 3 years of use.

If cleaning doesn't work, you may need to buy new cartridges and refill those when empty.

Good luck!

Recently got a cheap compatible replacement ink cartridge for my canon mp160. Did the whole "new ink cartridge" blah blah, even turned the colour level thing off. For some reason now, it's only...


This is called E5 error when you insert refilled cartridge or compatible.....
Printer does not read that particular cartridge.

No solution other than replacing with brand new one.

If you would like to save money, try refill kit by "ROADINK".
Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good.
For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video.
And will see how easy ink refill can be done.

Refilled Ink cartridge but the printer says there is no Ink


you refilled or purchased a new cartridge? If you refilled ; did you do it after the printer told you it was out? The cartridge electricial would have to be reset. How to do that is a guarded secret for Canon. Buy a Canon One and replace Cartridge, would one on solution.

HP deskjet 970cxi not printing red


Hello, usually the refilled cartridges doesn't work well.

You can try to fix your problem doing this:

1) Put some boiling water into a cup
2) Put the the cartrigde (print surface) close to the water to receive the steam (not inside the water)
Do this just a couple of minutes.
3) Put it back ther cartridge into the printer
4) Align or clean the cartridges with a printer program
5) Try printing again

If still does'nt work buy original cartridges or due the high cost of them buy a new printer.

Please don't forget to rate this solution! Have a great day!

Print cartridge in right stall not supported.


As a refiller, I've seen this many times. Usually it happens in the multifunction machines. If you put that cartridge in a stand alone printer, it will work good. HP all in ones blow a resistor in the cartridge making it useless to any all in one machine. Sadly, it is time to buy new.

Ink cartridge lights blinking


That is happening because you have "smart" chips on your cartridges, so even though you know there is still some ink left in the tank, if the chip says stop, the printer will stop printing. There is a way to bypass that and that is by using a re-setter. You can either buy one or ask to re-set your cartridge in a refill shop.
You can also try holding the "resume" button (triangle in circle for about 10 seconds for each cartridge, sometimes doing that resets the cartridges.
Do not refill the magenta and cyan cartridges if they are not empty, you'll just be wasting your money. Better use it to buy a re-setter ;)
Hope that will help!

Flashing ink refill light


Sometimes refilling them over and over doesn't work well. Once ok...but i suggest that you buy a new cartridge. I know that they are expensive but it will help. Also take some Rubbing alchohol and a q-tip...clean inside where the cartridge sits..that will help...this is for sure a bad ink cartridge
