Yellow cartridge problem

I have had my printer only 2 months. The yellow either does not print at all or prints too much. When I shake the cartridge it will disburse the yellow at the top and the bottom of the page and sometimes in the middle on the left hand side, and then it is very heavily coated in yellow. Help! It started doing this a week after I got the printer.

Magneta Color (Toner) and when I print, the Magneta color does not print. Even on supplies status page, the yellow color section at the bottom is blank where the yellow color should be printed. How c


Hello,
The Magenta or RED toner cartridge should be removed and double check that you have indeed removed the pull tab located on the side of the cartridge which will remove the sealing tape off the new toner cartridge.
The YELLOW toner cartridge on the other hand if it is not new then it is perhaps empty and needs to be replaced. Another option is to remove the YELLOW toner cartridge from the machine, Tap it and shake it side to side to loosen the toner that is in it, and replace it back into the machine, this will usually make it start to work again!
Good Luck!

My yellow ink has just run out in my hp laser jet CP1215 i just want to print in black only is this possible and if so how do i get the printer to do this?


It is not possible to print while an empty cartridge is in the printer.
Try shaking the yellow cartridge and try printing again.
There may be enough toner left for a few more pages.

Make sure you've removed the shipping tape from the cartridge's print head. More than likely the black cartridge is not disbursing ink - clean the print head carefully with "Q" tip and alcohol and see if black ink comes out slightly. Re-insert cartridge and try again. Perform "clean cartridge" in printer properties window.

What is the replacement printer for HP Laser Jet


This document provides information about replacing the print cartridge for the HP LaserJet 1010 printer series, including life expectancy and replacement instructions. Print cartridge life expectancy The life of the print cartridge depends on the amount of toner that your print jobs require. When printing text on letter/A4-size paper at five percent coverage, the print cartridge lasts an average of 2,000 pages. This assumes that you set the print density to three and disable EconoMode. (These are the default settings.) See Ordering supplies for information on ordering replacement print cartridges. Changing the print cartridge Follow the below instructions to change the print cartridge:
  1. Open the print cartridge door, and remove the old print cartridge. See the recycling information inside the print cartridge box. Figure 1: Removing old print cartridge c00028312.gif CAUTION: To prevent damage, do not expose the print cartridge to light. Cover it with a piece of paper.
  2. Remove the new print cartridge from the packaging, and gently shake it from side to side to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge. Figure 2: Gently shaking new print cartridge c00028313.gif
  3. Pull the tab until all the tape is removed from the print cartridge. Put the tab in the print cartridge box to return for recycling. Figure 3: Removing tape from print cartridge c00035442.gif
  4. Insert the print cartridge in the printer, making sure that the print cartridge is in position. Close the print cartridge door. Figure 4: Inserting new print cartridge c00028315.gif

The black ink head does not print . I have run a print check as well as cleaned the head and during the test print the black ink prints however when I attempt to print a document it will not print in...


You've contaminated the head by not fitting the cartridge in right. It flooded the head and now will skew any settings that you do.
The following is unorthodox but I do have 3 i850 Canons so I know that it works:
1. Snap all the cartridges out and lay them out on newspapers on their sides
2. Snap the print head out by lifting the lever on the side of the carriage.
3. Place the print head under a faucet directing the water at those areas covered by the cartridges
4. Shake the cartridge periodically as you rinse until the water runs clear out of the print head screen on the bottom.
5. After it seems clean centrifically shake the cartridge in a downward manner until no more water runs out.
6. Snap the print head back in and put all the cartridges back in their proper place; make sure that they snap in completely.
7. Print out some blocks of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black in an illustrator program untile they seem accurate.

Stopped printing yellow, worked fine yesterday, new cartridge installed, suspect airlock as no yellow at all.


Try taking your yellow cartridge out and giving it a shake. Also make sure you've removed all the plastic tabs from the cartridge, and test to see if there is any colour coming from it by pressing a damp paper towel against where the ink shoots out. If it still doesn't work I would simply return the yellow ink cartridge to where you purchased it for a new one.

Yellow runs out after only a few hundred prints and didn't used to


Not sure why you're going through the yellow toner so quickly. You might try pulling it out and shaking it some to re-distribute or loosen the toner inside.

No B/W print while black cartridge is full.


Your printer and its software will let you know when an ink cartridge is low or expended.

If an ink cartridge is low or expended, you see a message on the Epson Stylus CX8400 LCD display screen. If a cartridge is expended, you must replace it to be able to print. If a cartridge is low, you can continue printing until a cartridge needs replacement.

NOTE:
You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expended. Replace any expended cartridges before printing or copying.

When an installed ink cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it if your printouts do not look their best, even after cleaning and aligning the print head.


Follow the steps below to replace one or more ink cartridges that are low on ink, expended, or too old:

1. Turn on the printer.

If you're replacing a cartridge before you see a message on the LCD display screen, press Setup, select Maintenance, and press OK. Then select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK.

2. Open the scanner.

3. Open the cartridge cover.

4. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift the cartridge straight up to remove it. Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.

5. Before opening the new cartridge package, shake it four or five times. (Do not shake a cartridge after opening the package; ink may leak.)

6. Remove the cartridge from the package, but be careful not to touch the green chip on the cartridge.

7. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the cartridge.

CAUTION:
Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will leak.

8. Insert the new cartridge into the holder and push it down until it clicks into place.

9. Once you replace all the necessary cartridges, close the cartridge cover and push it down until it clicks into place.

10. Close the scanner.

11. Press OK to begin charging the ink. This takes about 2 minutes.

When you see a completion message on the LCD display screen, ink charging is finished.

CAUTION:
Never turn off the printer while ink is charging or you'll waste ink. If you see an ink replacement message on the LCD display screen, press OK and press down all the cartridges securely.
