Use a syringe filled with a liquid head cleaner. Add tip syringe with flexible hose (like the hose on the outlet head cleaning mechanic). Remove the ink tanks. Hose into the nozzle.Give the pressure slowly until the liquid head cleaner in the syringe out. Make sure no liquid is spilled in the vicinity of the nozzle. Replace the ink tanks, nozzle check and head cleaning. Is there a change from the nozzle check from the previous?

Hello my 7590 printer will not print in cyan


The chances are you have a defective cyan ink cartridge. If you are using an aftermarket/reloaded cartridge and the cartridge chip is defective. First try a new cartridge. The best bet is a new OEM cartridge, run the deep cleaning utility 3 times. The nozzle may be clogged and this will clean the nozzle.
Aftermarket/reloaded cartridges ink do not always meet the specifications for the printers that use the finer inks.
Let me know if this works for you. Thanks.

Prints like it is running out of ink, but it is a new cartridge. Some sentences are printing, others are blank, or partially printing.Followed instructions to align and clean nozzles. Doesn't help.


HTML clipboardIf you have lots of flashing error lights or electrical problems then it is likely to be electrical.

However, if like most... and your printer has just been left unused for some time? You probably have an ink clog on the cyan and magenta.
Or possibly a faulty cartridge.

Provided it worked OK before a period of non-use? Then you just need to use a PRINT HEAD CLEANING KIT to unclog the tiny jets.
Magic Inkjet Flush usually works a treat on those!

Magic is ideal for unclogging the tiny jets on any Canon, Epson HP andremoving those horrible white lines which usually appear in prints whendried ink clogs several jets...

So if yours appears to be a clog? all you should need to do is to use the Magic Inkjet Flush kit to soak the print head and you should be printing again like new.

After replacing cartridge in dell 810 the colours printing wrong


Hi

If you haven´t used your inkjet printer for a while it may just be dry ink clogging some of the nozzles in the print head.


To check if yours is clogged...


Remove the ink cartridges
Holding the cartridge upright and press down gently onto a paper towel.

The colour cartridge
you should see YELLOW, MAGENTA (red) and CYAN (blue)

But if any colours are missing? The inks have probably just clogged up? and you will need to buy a new one or if you know you still have ink then you can easily unclog it with a
Magic Inkjet Flush Kit (Which you can find on Ebay)

MIXED COLOURS
If you have others colours coming out then the colours have mixed...
Sometimes caused when people put tape onto the inks to keep them moist but instead the colours mix through capilary action.


If so... leave print head sitting on a paper towel for a few mins until the correct colours appear.



Read more about ink clogs here:
How to Clean, Fix, Repair, Unclog, Dry, Clogged Print Heads on CANON, EPSON, HP, Lexmark, Dell, Olivetti etc…

To prevent an ink clog it is best if you print something regularly about every 10 days to keep the tiny print head nozzles / jets open. Otherwise the ink in the print head will thicken. Then it´s like trying to pass a camel through the eye of a needle.

So to preven inkjet ink from clogging print something every 10 days if you dont have anything to print, use something like these test prints

Canon MP510 skips and makes 2 small blank lines going DOWN the pages, in only cyan and magenta. The two lines show up on the Nozzle Check Pattern but only on cyan and magenta.

IP4300 only recognizes magenta OR cyan


1. Get compressed air
2. Run Printhead under HOT water, do not worry about contacts getting slightly wet.

3. Blow compressed air with straw attachment into screens where the cartridge nozzle sits on printhead. then let it sit and dry.

4. reinstall print test page

5. if this fails open paint/photoshop and print a page of the color that is not printing correctly. rinse and repeat until colors flow freely.

I have several ip4300s and I have yet to give up the ghost on a printer with a clog ujsing this method.

Black ink


It's been my experience when an inkjet printer produces unfavorable printing results ("scan lines or no color) the most common cause is clogged print nozzles. The most common cause of clogged print nozzles is lack of use and the ink dries and hardens in the nozzles.
Your particular model of Lexmark as well as other brands generally have a utility to assist in unclogging the jets by forcing ink through the nozzles. This does "waste" ink, but it is the "easiest" way to attempt in unclogging the nozzles.

For your model try the following: (This is an excerpt from the Lexmark site.)
  1. Load paper.
  2. Click Start onestep.gif Programs onestep.gif Lexmark 4200 Series onestep.gif Lexmark Solution Center.
  3. From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks.
  4. Click Print. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through the clogged nozzles to clean them.
  5. Print your document again to verify that your print quality has improved.
  6. If you are not satisfied with the print quality, continue with step 7 and then print your document again.
  7. Wipe the print cartridge nozzles and contacts:
  1. Remove the print cartridges.
  2. Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth with water.
  3. Gently hold the cloth against the nozzles for about three seconds, and then wipe in the direction shown. acrtclnn.jpg
  4. Using another clean section of the cloth, gently hold the cloth against the contacts for about three seconds, and then wipe in the direction shown. acartclnc.jpg
  5. With another clean section of the cloth, repeat steps c through d.
  6. Let the nozzles and contacts dry completely.
  7. Reinsert the print cartridges.
  8. Print your document again.
  9. If the print quality does not improve, repeat step 7 up to two more times.
  10. If print quality is still not satisfactory, replace the print cartridges.
