Why is my printer printing out only green on my photos?


Check your printer cartridge. Ideally, there will be one for black and three for the colors; however, some printers only have 1 for color. If that's the case, then probably all the color ink except for green is gone from the printer cartridge. If so, you are going to need to buy a new color ink cartridge.

Color ink not printing, I have replaced the color ink, I have run all "cleaning" programs etc. When I print a page with some color or colors are a very faint gray. Any help ? No codes, flashing lights etc,...


It sounds like you have a severly clogged print head. The nozzles are likely gummed up and need to be cleaned. To do this, you need to inserta new set of OEM cartridges. Run the deep cleaning utiliity a half dozen times and then the alignment utility. This should clear the problem.
You have most likely been using aftermarket/reloaded cartridges with inks that do not meet the manufacturer's specifications. I would take them back to the vendor and ask for either a refund of replacements. If you are going to continue to use these cartridges, I would take out the OEM cartridges, reseal the two openings on the cartridge ( use electrician's tape) so that they can be used to clear the nozzles should they again become clogged with aftermarket ink.
Let me know if this solves your problem.

Replaced Yellow cartridge. Photos came out


Clean all cartridges to make sure ink is flowing. To do this put windoww cleaner ino a container about ten mm deep. Put the cartridges with the end where the ink comes out facing down into the container and soak for about ten minutes. After this dry off for with a paper towell and make sur each cartridge leaks color into the towell. may take a little shaking.

HP 290 Color Copier no yellow color


Hi,
I assume that when you cleaned the printer, you went into maintainence tab in the printer properties and hit the clean tab. We clean our printer heads this way and that always seems to fix the problem.

Yellow is a greenish color


Try printing this test pattern. I got this from this other website. But as ridiculous as I may sound, did you put the yellow cartridge into the Cyan compartment? Because to produce green you need to combine yellow and cyan. This test pattern will tell you which colors are not working properly. Then we can trace which cartridge is the problem or not. Let me know the colors that come out.27dfd86.jpg

Horizontal colored lines through grayscale printed photos


Hi George,

It sound's like an ink-feed issue:

1) Dirty heads, even after cleaning
2) No-ink or poor quality ink
3) Damaged head: some are part of the cartridge, some are not
4) Air bubbles in ink

The test page is typically not as hi-res nor as saturated as a
photo print. The hi-res photo puts the greatest demand on the print head.

The color lines you see are actually lines of missing color,
where the head has failed to deposit ink, so one or two primary
colors are missing from the complete picture.

For example missing yellow will make a blue line.
Missing magenta will make a green line
Missing cyan will make a red line.... etc..

Clean the heads again and again, print again and again,
hoping to flush the system.

BUT, keep in mind that cleaning wastes huge amounts of
ink and tiny little cartridges of ink cost more than many new printers.

Did you do a firmware update? If not go to brother homepage , download the update tool and do the update if it is avaiable.

Do you print with generic ink? If yes this prob is because of different color depth. Try to print with the original innobella ones or do some resettings within the printers properties when you print a pic from pc.

You may test the print out by printing directly from a picture card without pc.
