Colour printing problem - tried using a cold blower...

But, it is still printing the same way. Any other suggestion? How can I tell if it has run out of ink when the new cartridge is giving me the same problem?

    I have this exact problem. I changed the color cartridge, but the only color I seem to be getting is black and pink (which is some combination of colors)....same problem as before I changed the cartridge.

    Is there a solution?

I'm not sure if this will solve it, but whenever that has happened to me, I take a paper towel and I wick the bottom of the cartridge until the 4 colors show up. You might also try running hot water on that part of the cartridge and then wicking.

Also if you have the Printer Assistant loaded, there is an option there to clean the cartridge. Even though it's a new cartridge it may be clogged.

Hope this helps.

Epson sx200 printer, wont print black ink only

Many printers especially Photo ones also use colour even when printing Black. so you do need to replace the spent colour cartridge.

If you only need to print in black get a B&W printer not a colour one.

We just bought a new colour ink cartridge. We installed it and indicated it as a "new" cartridge. When we print something out in colour now we get stripes as well as colours that do not correspond to...

First, I suggest you run some cleaning runs. Then go into Maintenence and align the print head.

I can't tell what you failures are for sure because I cannot see your failure.

Will not colour print

You do not say what printer it is, but Epson have a checkbox in the print properties for "use black ink only" - would suggest you check for this, as someone may have checked this to get the printer to print when the colour ink is used up.

Excessive Yellow ink use

The printer software should have an option for head cleaning & alignment. Make sure to run these maintenance options and see the results. You may need to re-run the tests.

Sometimes generic inks can cause a problem, so after cleaning, try to use an oem cartridge (same company as your printer) and observe the results.
