Stylus r300 printing orange photos why


Follow these steps to clean the print head from the printer's control panel:
1. Make sure the printer is turned on but not printing, and the red
b error light is off.
If the red light is flashing or on, you may need to replace the ink cartridge.
2. Press the down button to highlight More Options, then press OK.
3. Use the up or down button to highlight Head Cleaning, then press OK.
4. To begin cleaning, press OK.
While cleaning, the printer makes noise and you see a progress bar on the control panel
display. Cleaning takes about 30 seconds.
Caution: Do not turn off the printer or interrupt the cleaning process.
5. When the cleaning is done, run a nozzle check to confirm the print head nozzles are
clean.
Make sure letter-size plain paper is loaded in the printer, then press Stop. The nozzle check pattern prints.
6. If the pattern has gaps or missing dots, press Stop to clean the print head again.
If the nozzle check pattern looks correct, press OK to finish.

Note: Run nozzle check at least three consecutive times. If you do not see any improvement and you have replaced the ink cartridges, your product may require service.

I have a HP Photosmart Premium C309A All-in-one printer. I am trying to print a greeting card. I bought the HP glossy greeting card. The outside prints fine (the glossy side) but when I print on the...


This could be due to the print-head clogging up, or your ink cartridges being low.
First, I would suggest cleaning the printhead.

Setup menu -> Tools -> Clean Cartridges

Then try it once again. If this doesn't work, try cleaning the print head manually, as per this guide.

If the problem persists, buy new cartridges.

Dell 720 color cartridge doesn't seem to be printing with enough 'green'...all pics tinted red. New cartridge. Is is possible to balance the color any better?


Run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle -- some of the ink-jets may be clogged, thus reducing the amount of ink reaching the paper.

Try "photo-quality" paper.

Blue pics on kodak 5300


Kindly reseat the cartridges 2 times and then close the access door .Click on Menu on the printer and scroll down and choose Clean printhead and select "deep cleaning"
Print a demo sheet after the cleaning process has been completed. If ur issue persists, Call Kodak @ 1800 421 6699 and they will replace printhead of the printer free of cost..
Printhead is the part which takes the ink out from the cartridges. Probably the printhead of the printer has gone bad.

Canon i550 has has rainbow line in output


Even though you say you have ink, the "rainbow" line is usually an ink problem. Try doing a head clean process.

Right-mouse click on the printer and bring up "Properties". There should be a 'Maintenance" tab and one or more cleaning options and/or nozzle checks.

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.

Epson Photo RX620: Printing Pink Lines


Hi,

None of these answers are accurate.  I know precisely what your problem is, and you aren't going to like what I have to say.  What you are experiencing will happen eventually to every Epson printer and there is nothing you can do about it other than to buy a new printer.  I have an Epson Stylus Photo 895 ( a 500 dollar printer in its day), which has the same issue.  I am just waiting for my ink cartridges to run out in order to buy a new one.

Endless research on google has turned up that there is no solution to this problem.  The issue you are having is with the Epson print head, which uses piezo technology.  What that means is that unlike HP or Canon printers which are thermal, piezo uses a small piezoelectrical cell to force ink out of the chamber.  It has advantages over thermal in that thermal requires a precise temperature to get ink on the page (what actually happens is that ink is heated, it forms a bubble, and the bubble bursts onto the page, hence the name BubbleJet).  Therefore, the ink has to have fairly precise thermal ink properties making it more expensive to manufacture.  Also, the ink on a BubbleJet (or HP) is wetter when it hits the page, and since the ink is heat resistant or order to properly form the bubble, the printer needs to incorporate a fast drying technology which consumes more energy.  The massive advantage of thermal is that the print head is on the cartridge, not on the printer itself; change your cartridges, get a brand new print head.  It makes cartridges more expensive, but reduces problems such as what you are experiencing.

Piezo on the other hand, always shoot ink through the same print head.  Once the head become damaged over time, the piezoelectric cell is no longer accurately pushing out the ink, and there is nothing you can do about it.  If you are lucky, it is only dried ink in the print head, but I can almost guarantee you that it is not.  Dried ink can be cleaned by repeated head cleanings, even manual ones involving rubbing alcohol.  However, I know that those pink lines are caused by the deterioration of the cell, and cannot be fixed.  If if were only dried ink, you wouldn't be limited to just pink lines on the page, you would see other colours.  If the cell is not doing its job, the lines are always pink (often called magenta when you google this problem).  The solution is to acquire a new print head.  Unfortunately, the cost of replacing an Epson print head is IDENTICAL to the cost of a new Epson printer.

So basically you have no choice, you need to buy a new printer.  Were I you, I would purchase a new thermal inkjet printer so that you get a new print head with every cartridge.  Look around before you buy to find out exactly how much the cartridges will cost, and then you will know which brand to buy.  Although piezo *can* make for a cheaper printer at the outset, Epson simply charged what HP and Canon do for their replacement cartridges because that is what people are used to paying, but you really do get more in a thermal inkjet catridge.

Sorry for the bad news,
DD.

Lines in prints


Lines in printouts indicate lots of issues. Clogged printheads...even in a new printer, damaged cartridge, or air bubbles in ink. Take out the cartridges, clean the heads and the docks printhead, replace and try again. If no success, try standinf the cartidges upside down on wet paper towel, and bleed ink a little. This eliminates air bubbles. Try printing now. Clean heads with printer program too. If still no success, follow consumer rights which says you are entitled to a product doing what it says it should for a reasonable amount of time (if it turns out to be a faulty dock. Try a new cartridge too after claening to eliminate damaged cartridge.
