Cartridge Alignment failed (though there are little green checkmarks along the entire margin of the page) and now will not print anything but blank paper.


1. Get a damp paper towel.
2. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
3. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.
4. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
5. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.
Good Luck!!!!!

How to clean print head. colors are faded. yellows are coming out green


If you want good results you must clean the print heads manually. Follow the procedure below:-


Apply a folded tissue paper to the ink nuzzle and press firmly. If the tissue comes off well blotted with ink it means you still have a good amount of ink in it and the nozzle is not blocked. If not blotted or scantily blotted, it means ink is really low or nozzle is blocked. To be very sure of this, place nuzzle in a plate/saucer with a bit water so that the nozzle is soaked. Leave for about 10 minutes. Then apply the tissue again. If still not well blotted it means ink is really low or empty. If new you should return it for a replacement. In the case of blocked nozzles, the procedure may be repeated over to get results.


If the yellow continues to print green, you must reinstall or format your system. Usually wrong colour registration is caused by a malfunction in the system not the printer. If it is a printer issue it usually returns gradually to the right colour after a number of print outs.


Good luck and God bless!

My magenta ink is not showing up on the diagnostic test. Print is coming out with alot of green and blue colors. I have a C7280 Hp all in one printer. Mickey


Use the HP Printing Assistant software to run a "nozzle check" -- to ensure that each of the 3 ink-jets is not CLOGGED, and therefore is not jetting ink onto the paper. If necessary, run 3 (or 6) "head-cleaning" cycles.

Then, try a different tri-colour ink-cartridge.

Everything I print comes out green


You may not be out of colour, but it does sound like you may have a blocked magenta print-head. This can occur from using cheaper paper or dusty environments. Take it to your local printer shop and get them to soak it in some cleaning solution. This should get you going.

Hope this helps.

Huge Margin with Kyocera FS 1000+


If the FS-1000 prints too far down the page or leave too much top margin or leaves a gap at the top of the page etc (<- for google searches). This is a problem with the felt pads on the three solenoids/clutch electro magnets that are under the right panel (2 under the engine/button board, 1 under the inner plastic cover, sometimes 4 in total on other kyocera printers). They get compressed over time meaning the metal leavers come into contact with the solenoid meaning they are released too slowly. Simply replace the felt pads with .5mm cardboard or another non-sticky non-metallic material. Too thick and it prints too far up the page.

Colour printing


If its a Canon printer try this.
OK, Canon will hate me for posting this.

1. Remove ink cartridges
2. Remove print head
3. go to sink or tub (stainless steel, not plastic type), pick up a roll of paper towel on the way.
4. Fold several layers of paper towel and place on flat surface.
5. Run hot water until HOT!
6. Turn hot water back to a dribble.
7. Run the dribbling hot water through print head, be careful not to wet the gold contacts.
8.When water running through print head is clear, place print head on paper towel.
9. Repeat number 7 and 8 until no colour shows on paper towel.
10. Gently DAB print head (DO NOT WIPE) inside and out with dry paper towel until dry.
11. I normally replace print head after drying, but you may wish to let it air dry overnight.
12. Replace print head in printer and install cartridges
13. Start printing.

I do this to all 4 of my Canon printers every 6 months or so.

If any colour fails to print after this process it means your print head probably needs replacing.

Hp Deskjet 845C - Yellow Colour not Printing


I found this post to work for me when yellow was not printing on my HP PSC750 after using 2 cartridges: "Well if you want to damage your printer use alcohol. But if you want to make it work then pull the cartridge from the printer and run hot water on a couple of paper towels leaving alot of hot water in the towels. Put some thing under them to keep them from staining your counter top and then set the cartridge down onto the hotwater towel and let the hot water melt away the dry ink and in minutes you may be printing again if this is what it is. Be sure and use a dry paper towel to wipe off the ecess wet before you reinstall the cartridge."
