Colour printing problem

I can't seem to get it printing properly in colour - I thought the ink was out so I changed the cartridge. However, the new one is printing just as badly as the old one - in streaks instead of lines. Any suggestions?

I have just fitted new cartridges although it was only the colour one which needed renewing I thought! However it wuld only print out in red/pink shades so I changed the black cartridge to be on the safe...


I have personally encountered similar problem in my work. There is no problem with your printer, No need to go to your suppliers yet.

Sometimes when either of the inks overflow at the nuzzle, it gets absorbed to an extent into another ink compartment. So that colour affected now prints another colour; the colour that has crept into its compartment, Sometimes it is serious at other times is not. If not serious, usually, after a few solid colour prints the colour affected returns to normal.

I do not know how much of a technical person you are, but I will give you the solution to returning that yellow printing red back to printing truly yellow. Bring out your colour cartridge. Peel off the seal covering top. You will see the holes through which in is fed into it. Get a clean handkerchief, fold it and place over the top of the cartridge. Hold it over a bowl or something. Now place your mouth over the top with the handkerchief in between and blow hard. Ink will discharged at the nuzzle. Clean off the ink. (At the nuzzle do not rub only dab). Now press a piece of folded tissue to the nuzzle firmly. It should be blotted with ink:- red, blue, yellow. If any colour is missing you may need to repeat the procedure. Once you get the three colours back, the issue is resolved.

Fixed new colour cartridges, and they are saying that the colour cartridges are empty and they are full


please check whether the printout is coming proper when you give a print.
if its coming proper the cartridge is proper.this message is shown because in the printer there is a sensor which detects where there is a ink in the cartridge or its empty.so if the printouts are coming properly the sensor is bit moved from its orignal position or the sensors are damaged and became faulty to detect the ink in the cartridges.
so you use the cartridges let it detect no ink print out will come till the end of the ink.

or if still the prints do not come try changing the cartriges .

Refilled ink cartridges problem colour


this is not a printer problem, you have a problem with colour cartridge! u can fix this in 2 diferent way: 1. replace the colour cartridge with new one, or gently clean the nozzle cartridge with a wet tissue until the cyan colour mark a line on the tissue just like the others colours: yellow and magenta. maybe must repeat this several times.

I keep getting cartridge error or it prints a blank page. There is no tape on the cartridge and they are installed properly. It prints sometimes but not all the time Printer keeps saying cartridge error


This has been just happening with me aswell - I just changed the colour cartridge with the black cartridge ran out but i kept it in as it told me to place one in. Trying to print out but black ink wont come - just blank pages - surely the colour cartridge can make black? However, if you have the colour cartridge and are on microsoft word or similar, change the colour of the writing to dark navy and it will print out documents.

Printing photos


its ok I solved it! I didn't realise that all the photo cartridge does is gloss over the colour picture produced by the colour cartridge. I simply had to replace the colour cartridge which had run out, so now its all working perfectly!!
