The important part of question is the word "refilled" Remember that the cartridges come pressurized from the factory so when refilling you are taking a chance as to whether the cartrige will preform as expected. That is not to say that it should not work but I am sure if you replace the cartridge with a Lexmark approved cartridge the cyan will work.

Good luck! Dont forget to rate my response!

My brother CIP-J140W is only printing in cyan. I had accidentally put the cyan cartridge in the black cartridge spcae. Despite changing them around, cleanre the head etc, it is still only printing in cyan....


Oops, You really have to print, selected black, till all Cyan ink is gone. This could take a while. Cleaning the head, won't solve anything.
If you really want to clean the ink out of the head and everything, you need special cleaning fluid. Refill shops do have this fluid. You should bring some cleaning fluid in the tube under the black cartridge, in the tube where the ink is going in. If you have a syringe you could try to gently press some fluid through the tube. Not to strong. could damage the head.
After placing back the black cartridge, select clean the head and let the printer do some black and withe print jobs, till the cyan is gone.

I cannot get my printer to print. I have black ink and all other colours except cyan. I want to print in black and white but it won't work, please help


Hi there!
In order for you to print you need to refill your cyan ink cartridge. Even if you just want to print black and white.

I have a Stylus CX5400 and can't get black to print without mixing blue into it. Tried new cartridges, same effect. On a text document the same lines turn blue everytime I print, the rest prints black. Any...


You may have a leaky blue (cyan) cartridge that has polluted the black output.

Well worth checking the inside of the printhead (where the cartridges are located) and see if there's a build up of ink.

Also, well worth checking that you haven't received an incorrectly marked cartridge that contains cyan instead of black ink.

May not be the direct solution but it will certainly help isolate a few possible causes.

Hope it helps.

My cyan ink ran out so I replaced it (brand new cartridge) but it is not printing any cyan?? Help please!


The ink path probably dried out. Sometimes repeated cleaning cycles will fix it but at expense of wasting a lot of ink.

You might want to get a refill kit and use syringe to force cyan ink into that channel or purge the channel with the cleaning fluid.

Cyan doesn't print


Have you had a paper jam recently? My only thought might be that a small piece of paper is stuck where the cyan cartridge prints.
Maybe get an air duster spray can, remove all inks and spray inside.

Cyan or yellow ink cartridge light stays on. Can not print.


I had this problem after I ran a print cartridge out of ink on my HP business inkjet 1200. The Print color light stayed on solid, and would not print.  After much frustration and trying many other things, I purged the air from the print cartridge pump, and that cleared the problem. To get rid of the air (which I could see through the translucent wall of the pump) I inserted a syringe needle (without the syringe) into the nozzle of the cartridge, and expelled some ink with the air. This is messy, so I recommend gloves. I have been refilling my cartridges for years.

Can't print


Ok, if your brother has four cartridges then I'll assume you have black ink available. There should be a printer setting to print in black only, especially if your trying to print a colored document. If your brother only has three cartridges then cyan is necessary to form black; you will have to buy a replacement cartridge.

Photo printing


It is definite one cartridge is not running. You do one thing - 1. Write documents in MS-Word - select all - change the color to Red. Take print out. Check Printing is perfect or not.
2. Write documents in MS-Word - select all - change the color to Cyan. Take print out. Check Printing is perfect or not.
3. Write documents in MS-Word - select all - change the color to Yellow. Take print out. Check Printing is perfect or not.
I am sure when you changed the color to Cyan - it did not print Cyan or blank page you got.
So you must replace the Cyan cartridge or may be ink is not coming out through the passage. And first you have to check whether you have removed the plastic tape from the head of t he cartridge.
