Hi There

Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

P50 dose not print black color


You might have to run the head clean more than once - if no black at all is printing.. Alternatively, set out a page of all black (background) and print few pages on high print quality setting.

good luck!

Does not print dark enough to read. Changed toner and adjusted print darkness feature. Still does not work. Any idea what to do?


Hi

When printing, just adjust the PRINT QUALITY to PHOTO because I believe your print quality is set to TEXT. I am sure it will print move darker than before.

I hope it helps you solve your problem.

Had a paper jam and was printing a total black


Three suggestions for you
1- check your toner cartridge, might be empty, totaly black page will use enough toner for about 200 normal pages worth of toner,
2- did you use a cleaning solution on the drums? if you did then you could be facing a slippery drum, as in the toner will not adhere to the drum long enough for it to print. You are going to have to wait untill you print enough to wear this layer of cleaning solution off.
3- some printers and i think yours is one of them use a type of print film in the system. Not sure how or what this film does, but if it is not put back in place or it is fed into the unit wrong , then your printer will not print,

That's it for my ideas. Hope one of them works for you.

When printing colour, black appears green


A worn out printhead can allow inks to contaminate each other, after cleaning you need to check your cartridges, if yellow is a brown color, you are getting contamination and need to replace the printhead. Black is hard to tell but when cyan gets too dark it's contaminated as well.

Vertical dark lines


Try to reset the printer unplug it for an hour.

If those line are drawn (nice and straight) the printer has serious issues, think of replacement.

If you change recently your black for a compatible then try a genuine one,

The print head might have leaked.
Or, a drop of ink felt on the wheel who move the paper. Open it and try to clean with a damp rug
The mechanism need some greassy spot so do not be too clean.
good luck...
