Unfortunately, I fear your printer may be beyond recovery, you see unless you especially prepare your inkjet for storage. If this isn't done, the old ink, dries inside the lines in the printer and it is this that stops it from going, and makes it very difficult to get it going again. usually they are not recoverable, one must strip down and clear all traces of ink from all tubes etc, it is a mission.
I think you will need a new printer.

I have a Brother HL 4070 CDW. I have replace the Magenta cartridge but it seems to be spilling ink. When I print in color, the images are not good.


Make sure that the toner cartridges are installed properly.Make sure that the drum unit is installed properly.Make sure that the belt unit is installed properly. Perform the calibration. Adjust the colour by using the custom setting in the driver and by using the control panel. Colours the printer can print and colours you see on a monitor are different. The printer may not be able to reproduce the colours on your monitor. Make sure that you use paper that meets the printer's specifications. Put in a new drum unit.Put in a new belt unit. Check the printer's environment. Conditions such as high humidity and high temperatures may cause this print quality problem.Identify the colour causing the problem and put in a new toner cartridge. If the problem continues, put in a new drum unit. Also visit >>

Colours are printing in yellowish greens and does not look natural. What can I do? Thank you.


Replace the colour cartridge -- you are seeing "mixtures" of only TWO of the THREE "primary" colours.

Printer will print with almost no ink on page in colour or b/w


You have to have both the cartridge installed and then
Run a nozzle check to make sure the nozzles are clean. Try running a printer self-test to make sure the printer is running properly without using the computer.


Macintosh 9.x or earlier: Open the File menu and choose Print. Click the Ink icon. You'll see a window showing the ink remaining in each cartridge.

Macintosh OS X: Double-click the Applications folder on your hard drive. Double-click EPSON Printer Utility, select the C42 Series printer in the Printer List window and click OK. Then click the EPSON StatusMonitor button. You'll see a window showing the ink remaining in each cartridge

Epson sx200 One of the colour inks is empty and no print in black


Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Printing in black only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing.

Then try this, it works for me!!!
Canon will hate me for 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 being 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.

Red colour prints brown


Just replace the non genuine inks with proper Canon ones and then do about 4 full cleans, that should fix it. If not you will have to replace the printhead, which is usually caused by using non genuine ink. Good luck
