If you use your printer occasionally, it might be that the print head on the cartridges is clogged. I don't know what was serviced, but if your cartridges haven't been printing for a while, that is surely your problem. You can try this:
  1. Try cleaning the print cartridge from the Maintenance utility by following the steps below:
    1. On the all-in-one front panel, press Setup (or Menu) repeatedly until "Maintenance " displays, then press Enter .
    2. When "Clean Cartridges " displays, press Enter .
    3. At the end of the cartridge cleaning cycle, a page will print. Examine the page to determine if the problem is corrected.
  2. If the problem still exists, clean the cartridge following the directions below in the "Clean under the cartridges and the carriage " section below.
  3. Verify that the ink cartridge is not low on ink by checking the estimated ink levels as indicated in the "Colors on printout are wrong or fade in and out while printing " section above.
  4. Replace the print cartridge for the color that is not printing correctly.

Datacard sp55 printer won't recognize ribbon


PR-01726 Ribbon Out
Out of print ribbon.
Possible Cause 1 : The print ribbon Cartridge is empty.

Solution 1 : Reload the print cartridge. Change the cleaning sleeve and replace the cartridge in the printer. Run a cleaning card as soon as printing is completed.

Possible Cause 2 : The printer ribbon is not loaded correctly.
Soultion 2 :Load the printer ribbon correctly and then close the cover.

Possible Cause 3 : This ribbon has been completely used.
Solution 3 : Use a new roll of ribbon.

Tips for Success
* When this message appears, replace the old ribbon with the new ribbon of the same type. The printer has already prepared the card data for this ribbon type. You can change the colors of monochrome ribbon (such as from dark blue to gold).

* If you must change the type of ribbon (such as (YMCKT to KT) when this message appears, install the new ribbon, cancel any cards waiting to print, and change the ribbon type settings. Finally, return to the card creation program to send the card data to print.

* If the ribbon was repaired, the wrong take-up spool was used. Repair the ribbon again, using the correct take-up spool.

If you cannot fix the problem contact your service provider for assistance.

Printing won't work.


Good day sir/maam, hi, when you test print it usually prints letters and no lines are printed. try first if the printer is setup to economy/draft or pictures, if lines are faded, the ink cartridges maybe dirty. manual cleaning is needed, the ink path starts from the ink cartridge to the cradle or carrier then to paper. so any dried ink that blocks the path can affect the printout. you can use warm water to loosen dried ink. remove the cartridges and cradle from the printer as you clean them.

Cleaned printer but printing is faded...


You may need to replace the toner cartridge or replace the transfer roller, I believe that's what it's called. It's the roller that transfers the ink from the toner cartridge to the paper.

Faded print on one side of page


I have a SCX-4100 Samsung, replaced the tonger cartridge, it was working fine for a few hundred sheets of printing, but after that, the left side of the page was printed very light, faded.
If I run the "Clean Drum", it will print a litter better, but still faded.
What can I do to correct this problem?
Thank you

HP Officejet 6210 printing blank pages


Hi steve well I suggest that you remove the cartridges and clean the little gold contacts on the carriage and the cartridge. If this doesn't work then install brand new original cartridges as the cartridegs that you have refilled the data ribbon may have been damaged when you refilled them..

Try the above and I hope it works for you
Thanks J

Very funny. There are a number of things you can try. Start by checking for very small debris in paper feeder area and inside unit, especially around printhead carriages. Clean your unit thoroughly, including rollers and run allignment checks. Also check all printer settings for normality. Only load small amounts of paper at one time as this helps to avoid pressure on feeder rollers, and may alleviate 2 sheet feeding.
