    You can't get to the cartridge unless it is empty. How can you make it move to the change cartridge position?

    My printer has been working great for several years and many, many ink cartridge changes. Then just a few weeks ago I changed the black cartridge and now it won't print black. I've changed the cartridge 3 times and still no go. I've tried cleaning, aligning, turning the computer and printer off/on -- to no avail. Looks like a growing problem with these printers. In the meantime, I have no printer. Any other suggestions?

Some of Epson's cartridges went bad that way. It may be a bad cartridge. Get a new one, pull that one out and see what happens. If it works, call Epson for a refund. They had a class action suit for that type of thing, they lost and paid off. I would think they will help you right away.

I used machine's ink jet cleaning program, without luck. Cyan and Yellow still don't print. What next?


My HP printer has a cleaning programme and a cartridge priming programme. I had trouble with my colour cartridge, in particular the cyan. The cleaning cycle never worked but the priming programme worked a couple of times but whenever the printer was left idle for a while the colour would not print.

I took the cartridge to a refill shop and the guy emptied the ink and steamed out the cartridge and print head and refilled it and then it did work for a time.

A new cartridge is expensive and so these days I just use it for printing black...

I think there must be something strange or different about the cyan ink. Sometime in the future I am going to try steaming again only this time with a deal more pressure than the guy at the refill shop used.
I am sure it will be kill or cure...


Deleting the printer and reinstalling it should be the next step to try. Sometimes my printer goes a bit eccentric or gets in a bad mood if I try and pause or cancel printing from the printer menu. I have learned not to do that with any HP printer. Once it gets in a bad mood the only cure is to disconnect it from the mains and leave it for half an hour before plugging in again.
My printer, incidentally, is a Deskjet 96 Cxi professional machine. I like it because it prints both sides of the paper and it cost me nothing.

Sorry for the delay in my answer. No you do not need to remove the ink from the cartridge itself. Soak remove the cartridge and soak it as is. You will get a huge colour change in the water but it will not use any more than 0.1ml of ink

> replaced the print head

Did you replace the tri-colour ink-cartridge, or did you replace the print-head mechanism?

Are you sure that the CYAN part of the ink-cartridge is not empty?

Pixma ip4200 willl not print Cyan


I think the problm lies between the ink tank and the printhead. When this passage runs dry, sometimes it takes time for the ink to fill this passage again. Try printing again after a day or two.

My hp deskjet 1280 will not print yellow


Hello, this is Harry from www.BusinessSpread.co.uk.
We had the exact same problem when printing, we used 3 different 78 colour ink cartages and they all said 100% full but did not work. We then had a look at the dates on the box and they were all expired so when buying ink from anywhere even PC world or Curry’s always look at the expiry date.
Today I went to PC world and purchased a new 78 ink which said expires July 2011 and it works perfectly fine.

Canon i960 printer won't print in blue


Your problem is the print head. You can buy one from Canon for about $95, or find them new from dealers on Ebay for $60 to $70. For a less expensive fix, try to remove the print head and clean it. (You don't need any tools, just remove the ink tanks and pull the print head forward and out. Over time, the receivers tend to get dry & crusted ink on them. Note that the inks used are fast drying inks to keep your pictures, etc. from smudging after you print them. Try not to use solvent. I use q-tips and hot water, then dry using another q-tip. If this does not work, there are commercial cleaning kits available for about $10. Short of that, your choice is to replace the print head or the printer itself. My i960 prints such good quality color prints and normal color printing, that I would fix it rather than replace the printer. I hope the easy cleaning does it for you!
