It says used ink jet full. I don't know what that means. All of my color ink jets are full and I can't even make them come forward to check them but I'm sure they are full. What is the used ink jet.

Used ink jet is probably something like the 'waste toner' cartridge in laser printers. Look in the manual for a reservoir that has waste ink somewhere. Hopefully it'snot in the ink jet cartridge.

What year,make,model printer is this for further research?

Have color laser jet 2605-error saying refresh supplies-what does this mean

Your printer "consumes":

1. paper
2. ink (either liquid-ink in an "ink-jet" printer, or dry toner-ink in a "laser" printer)

Refresh the supply of these "consumable" items.

Bypass expired message cartridge. Cartridge is less than six months old & nearly full.


Every cartridge will have its own ID and Expiry date, please check the Cartridge expiry date, if its really expired then printer will reject it even-though the cartridge is full.

We cannot bypass cartridge errors for single cartridge in INK-JET printer, because they work in TIJ technology (Thermal Ink Jet) which needs all cartridges to be functional unlike Laser-jet printers.

The ink-jets that shoot the ink onto the paper are CLOGGED.
Launch the HP Printing Assistant software, and run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle (or 2 or 3 cycles),
to try to unclog the ink-jets.

Color ink cartridge show a full ink supply, but it won't print color.

It's possible that the ink-jets that spray the colour ink onto the paper have become clogged. Run the printer software, and select a "print-head-cleaning-cycle", to try to unclog those jets.

Is it worth buying a new print head for i560 printer (Canon)?

Why do you think the head is bad? Treated with care, these things are bulletproof.

I have an i560 which was discarded but clean. I first ran a test page and the printer worked fine, but with many streaks.

Part of that was "fuzz" stuck under the head wiping across the paper. The other part was clogged jets. Here's the cool part.

This head is built like a tank and is very easy to remove and unclog.

First always remember, NEVER place the head jets down on anything or touch them with anything other than LIGHT pressure with a soft paper towel or cloth.

Remove all 4 ink tanks and if they have a decent amount of ink in them, and are not very old, carefully place them upside down somewhere safe, label side down, ink pads up. Work quickly to minimize ink evaporation this point forward.

Remove the head assy. lifting the blue latch on the right side. It's pretty spring loaded. This will completely release the printhead.

Carefully pull the top part forward, then up and out. Don't touch the gold contacts but do check visually to see if they're clean. If not, a soft damp cloth will likely clean it up and get old ink off.

Use a small plate with about 1/2" of warm water and holding the printhead by the edges, place the jets just into the warm water. The water will instantly start to turn brown from all the ink. Using a dry soft paper towel or cloth, take the head and gently press the towel onto the metallic jet assemblies and draw out all the old ink. You will see black from the K jets, and tri-colors from the CMY jets.

You can repeat this with clean warm water again. Remember not to take a long time as your ink tanks are sitting open. 10 minutes should be more than enough time.

Use wet qtips to clean old ink from around the inside of the head, where the tanks go, around the outside of the round silver screens. There are rubber seals there and you want those clean. The screens are very delicate and do not touch them with anything.

Use dry qtips to remove all water from the seals and any other area in the head assy. Again, do not tough the screens.

Finish by using a damp towel to very gently wipe down the bottom side and the ink jets. A little more ink will probably come out into the towel.

Once everything a dry, place the head carefully back into the printer locating the bottom, jet part first into the carriage then push the top part with the contacts toward the back to seat it. make sure it's all the way in by slightly "jiggling it". It should not move around and be "in".

Move the blue latch to the down position to lock in the head.

Replace the ink tanks but make sure ink is not leaking out the bottoms as this indicates a bad seal on the tank and it's a gonner.

Close the printer cover and let it complete the automatic cleaning cycle.

Print a test page:

With the printer on and idle, press the right paper eject/cancel button and hold it down until the green light flashes off-on TWICE then remove your finger. It goes like this "hold down button, green light goes off, flashes on-off...on-off... release button!

This triggers a 4 color test print and will show all the black jets and color strips for the color jets.

If everything is clean (and it's going to be a LOT cleaner now!), you should see nice even colors and a nice stairstep pattern at the top for the black with no missing lines.

If it's pretty good, but has some minor issues, you're close.

You can open the printer and repeat the warm water procedure.

One other thing I did you really clean out all the old ink was to use an eye dropper and place a drop of the clean water on top of the metal silver screens. Then gently press a towel up on the ink jets as before. You will see the water sitting on the screens disappear as it's drawn into the jets and you will see even more ink coming out.

This should give you a brand new printhead.

If you see any debris or ink or discoloration on the gold contacts (they should all be shiny gold), you can gently use a damp CLEAN towel to gingerly wipe off the debris.

As a last resort, if some look discolored, and SOFT PLASTIC eraser (like Mars Plastic) can be used to clean them using minimal pressure. Any eraser dust must then be brushed off with a soft brush, or a damp CLEAN towel followed by gentle wiping them dry.

In my case a poorly operating head to this day (years later) prints totally perfectly as if new.

Despite what DocPlayer claims, these heads are solid, meant to last (as opposed to the throw-away ones) and are durable.

The most vulnerable part are the ink jets themselves with are highly precise and tiny and easily damaged through carelessness.

Treat them gently and with nothing other than soft paper towels or cloth so they cannot get scratched, and assuming there is not any damage to them, you should have a brand new head.

I have resurrected these heads myself and every time, they cleaned up and run perfectly.

Finding new replacements, I suspect, would be difficult and likely not worth the cost. So there's noting to really lose cleaning it up if it's not working well. The odds are on your side it will work great.

HP printers can be as cranky as AnY inkjet. Even the i560 hates to sit unused. All inkjets need regular use to keep them happy. I don't care who makes it. They all rely on liquid ink which when sitting long enough, starts to dry. Simple physics.

Printing a test page (two blinks) is easy, doesn't need a computer even connected, and excersies the printing plumbing. I try to do it at least every two weeks or so and everytime I have a print job I need to do and the printer has been idle for a few days.

One more thing. Try not to unplug the printer and always keep it powered when it's turned off. There are internal timers which keep track of idle time and perform different types of head cleaning automatically.

If the printer loses power, it loses the timers and you will then force it into doing a full cleaning cycle which consumes a significant amount of ink when it's not necessary.

Also avoid opening the cover often and for long times as this also gets timed by the printer and will cause a cleaning cycle due to the fact it has left the inkjets exposed to the air.

When parked, the jets are sealed by rubber covers when not in use keeping them moist.

Good luck.

In my honda xlr 125 i changed the main jet to #92 and slow jet to #35 is this ok? If so how can i tune the carb. I am from Sri Lanka. Its a tropical country.

The only way to know if the jetting is correct is to see how well it runs - and check the spark plug color.
You can start by warming up the engine and adjusting the idle mixture. Do this by turning the idle mixture adjustment screw (there are only two adjustment screws on the carburetor: one is the idle speed adjustment, the other is the idle mixture adjustment). Turn the idle mixture adjustment screw in or out until the fastest idle speed is attained. Then adjust the idle speed with the idle speed adjustment screw.
Now ride at full power and see how well it performs. If the engine cuts out or surges at full throttle, that means the main jet is too small. If the engine produces black smoke from the exhaust and doesn't seem to produce enough power, then the main jet is probably too big. Confirm the main jet correctness by looking at the color of the spark plug: white or light tan = too lean (main jet too small). Dark brown or black = too rich. Dark tan to brown color = perfect.

Same problem

HP printers use a little bit of color ink, even if you only print in black. This is done by HP inorder to keep the color printhead jets clear.

You can select "greyscale only" by clicking on [Preferences] and going to the advanced screen. Choose "use greyscale only".

When you print a color page, the printer will only print black/grey. However ... it will still use a tiny bit of each color ink.

Oh, yeah .. they make lots of money, too.

Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head. Therefore, once one of the cartridges are expended, the printer signals you to replace the cartridge in order for printing to continue.

Pictures printing with stripes of color in some programs but not all programs.

Try new injet cartidges. If your printer has separate head and ink combo, replace the jets. The high quality mode operates the piezo jets at full power and lower setting can cause jets not to open as far. On some preinters, your particalar problem can be the result of too thin paper and the economy setting being used. Use 18lb or 20lb paper and see if it still does it on normal print mode.
