The color printer might not print in color due to dirt and other unwanted particles present in the printer. Due to this unwanted particles, the ink used for printing and other materials might become blocked inside the printer device and this might lead to some printing issues. In order to resolve this issue, regular cleaning of the printer is necessary.

I have an HP Phototsmart C4280 that is printing everything in pink. Any idea why?


This is the cartridge color problem, if you've refilled the cartridge, there must be proportion problem (magenta/yellow/cyan), or if you print dark colors like green or blue (which uses cyan and yellow mostly) and never use the red or other color (magenta and black), cyan and yellow might have finished up. If you can refill it proportionately, go ahead, but i would suggest you to purchase new cartridges and install.
Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

My out of warranty l7680 will not print or photocopy in colour. Printhead status says Refilled supply Detected in printhead Black No/Yellow Yes Magenta Yes/Cyan Yes Detected in Printer Black No/Yellow Yes...


The error states that you are using non-HP cartridges for all colours. If black prints fine then you should replace the colour cartridges with genuine HP colour carts. You should be able to get a refund on the refills since they clearly do not work as intended.

Is it possible to use non HP ink in ths printer? Tried using "remanufactured ink", and concluded that this printer may be programed to block the use of NON HP INK.


It is always recommended to use genuine HP cartridges.
As if we will use the non HP or refilled cartridges, it will reduce the life of the printer.
And we will get an error "cartridge problem".
Plaese use the below cartridges, which are compatible with this printer.

Using the same cartridges for the HL-4070CDW, I refilled the black yellow cyan and magenta cartridges. when I put them all back into the printer, the RED toner life end comes on saying that cyan, magenta,...


There's a window on each end of the cartridges and light shines thru to show when they're empty, your refill toner may not be the right density. If you put a small piece of electrical tape over the windows on the cartridge, the error will go away, but you have to watch print quality to change or add toner.

The red is not printing


At a guess you are using recycled toners? If the recycler has not worked out the refilling procedure properly, the problem you experienced with the exploding Cyan toner is common. It is possible in the act of blowing out the loose cyan toner your have used to much air pressure, possibly blowing toner into the laser beam units, or damaging the toner sensor unit for magenta.
A diagnostic inspection, by a technician would be suggested.

Refilled ink cartridges not recognizby printer.


I fixed the problem by using original Canon ink cartridges and not getting them refilled. Apparently their chemists put a chemical in all of their inks so that only their Canon printers will recognize. It's a guarded trade secret that no one else knows about, unless it was analized. Other ink manufacturers produce ink that looks exactly as Canon ink, but that's where the similiarities end.

Ink cartridge lights blinking


That is happening because you have "smart" chips on your cartridges, so even though you know there is still some ink left in the tank, if the chip says stop, the printer will stop printing. There is a way to bypass that and that is by using a re-setter. You can either buy one or ask to re-set your cartridge in a refill shop.
You can also try holding the "resume" button (triangle in circle for about 10 seconds for each cartridge, sometimes doing that resets the cartridges.
Do not refill the magenta and cyan cartridges if they are not empty, you'll just be wasting your money. Better use it to buy a re-setter ;)
Hope that will help!
