K...Trust the solution. Try these steps. Open the printer, remove the ink and remove the printhead (See User's guide). Reseat the printhead and the ink cartridges. The printer will come up with an error message that requires calibration. Do the calibration and scan the sheet that prints right after by pushing the start button. In the menu options, clean the printhead. Do one basic and one deep. Print a demo sheet (another menu option) to see if the quality has gotten better. If it has not call Kodak AiO Tech support. You will need a replacement printhead.

You may want to use brand ink as its mixture is more reliable. However if you have changed cartridges frequently try cleaning the print heads.
Routine maintenance and keeping full ink tanks will prevent this problem, however if you have the problem you can resolve it by doing the following:
1. Clean your ip3000 print head using denatured alcohol solvent which can be purchased from most hardware stores. If unavailable, use 91% Alcohol (isopropyl alcohol (first aid antiseptic) which is available for less than a dollar at most Walmart pharmacy departments.

*Warning: You may want to use a pair of latex exam gloves as this is a messy process and can stain your fingers.
Time necessary 45-50 minutes
Supplies needed:
Isopropyl Alcohol or denatured alcohol
paper towels
latex gloves
sink, bowls and or basin
can of compressed air
very small screw driver
tablespoon or baby bulb type syringe
warm water

PROCEDURE:
1. Lift print head from printer. It pulls out easily because it is held in with the same down lever that holds the cartridge in place.
2. Put two layers of paper towels in the bottom of a dish to protect sensitive sprayer heads.
3.Put enough solvent in dish to cover the screens on which the cartridges sit when in use.
4. Take the two small screws out that hold the white ceramic piece
5. Gently, pry the ceramic piece back and away , to reveal the underside (No need to pull away the glued points on the sides.)
6. Gently, move head up and down to slosh solvent around it the best as you can. Use a table spoon or syringe to pour solvent over all orifices in the print head, turning it upside down and then back a few times.
7. Use canned air with a plastic straw to blow into and through all orifices, alternately sloshing/swishing and pouring solvent over head (be careful not to touch any of the holes, screens, or sprayer heads with anything)
8. Empty dirty solvent from bowl and replace with paper towels and clean solvent. Soak for approx 10 minutes. Rinse again with clean solvent poured directly on all parts, letting solvent overrun and fall into dish or basin.
9. Gently shake the solvent off the head, take it outside and spray with compressed air into all orifices to clear out and help evaporate any remaining solvent. Let sit on a clean paper towel for approx 20 minutes. (There may be a little ink bleeding out of the head, but once it dries completely it does not present any problems.
10. Reinstall head, cartridges and it will print like a new printer.

SUGGESTION: For many years of problem free printing, keep a double set of ink cartridges, one set full at all times. Whenever a cartridge runs out of ink, replace it IMMEDIATELY, with a new one or a refilled one. This gives the print head no chance to dry out and create clogged heads. Routine maintenance of cleaning the heads every 24 months does wonders for keeping your ip3000 in new condition.

Hope this helps. .

Your printer needs a service, in other words the waste ink sponges need to be cleaned and dried. They then need to be replaced and the printer reassembled. Then the Epson counter resetting software needs to be installed.

With this software the printer can be set to zero, it will work perfectly after this bit of attention.
It is a good printer, it's nothing that can't be repaired.

A computer technician will be more than happy to service your printer for you.

All the best!

How do I get the printer to print when it only has the blk ink cartridge that is new and the color ink is running out. It prints everything red. What do I do?


Get new color cart. Most inkjet printers will not print anything if one of the carts is empty.

As for printing everything red, that is a different issue. Your printer setup screen in the computer may have a "black only" setting.

Your print heads most likely need to be cleaned.

When you don't use your ink carts for a while, when you get new ink carts that have been stored in warehouses for a number of months, or when you have refilled a slightly too dry ink cart, the print head nozzles on the bottom of the ink carts get clogged with dried ink. The printer head cleaner menu will not disolve the dried ink. Water will. Try this. Soak the bottom of the clogged ink cart in 1/2 inch of hot water for 15-30 minutes. Blot dry with clean paper towel(you should see the ink color on the towel). Retry.

Depending on when you last used your printer it may take a few head cleans before the ink prints. Print a nozzle check after each clean (uses minimal ink).

Also be aware each clean depletes your other carts as well.

I added a black ink cartridge and it only prints in red.


I use a small diameter silicone tube tocarefully "prime" stubborn new carts by sucking a drop of ink out ofthe tiny print holes in the printhead part of the cart. Ink can dry at the headand since these carts work by electrical excitation, there needs to be liquidof each color at the holes. Slap a drop of water with your finger on the holesto start easy hesitant ones. Do not get the contacts wet.

First printing a photo takes lots of ink , it depends on the color of the photo , cyan is blue which maybe consumed more in the printing or there changes that the ink may have dried in the cart hence your getting this error ,remove cart take damp paper towel and hold the paper on the place where ink comes out gently for 20 second ,make it does not touch copper contact it may damage the cart ,make sure you check the place where ink with dry paper its usually bottom of the cart and repeat the above step with dry paper towel and try to print if you get the same error then you need to replace the cart or you can contact brother support and get cart replaced , once cart is used you need print once in week to keep cart from drying, you can use any photo paper which is compatible with printer .

Good luck....

well ushally the ink carts have exporation dates incoded in them so after those days it almost automatically turn them off.

when you buy a new computer ink carts are 25% to max 50% full but your printer would read them as full as well

try new ink carts or contact your manufactuer and tell them that your issue and chances are its a dryed out ink cart and they will ushally send you replacements for free.

Changed all 3 colors and black---Red not printing


Print is brown: mingles yellow with bk and cyan and red.

Did you use generic ink? You have to use a set of original brother ink carts: dinsert the original carts. press menu then start b/w copy then fourtimes arrow-up. when machine is in maintenance mode press 7 then 6 then 4 then start b/w copy. machine will initiate the carts and do some power cleaning. whnen finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start b/w copy. machine does a power purge. leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9. Do run a test print. If you cant see any mag. do the power purge two days later. If your not lucky then (you cant see ANY mag squares on test print) the head is defective and needs replacemnt.

Brother mfc 420 cn does not print red color


do you use generic ink? If yes, the generic ink might have clogged the ph (valve stucks inside because of lack of additives!).

Anyway, do this:
(use near full level ink carts!)
make sure carts are placed well and are secured.
Press menue then start bk copy then fortimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink in tubes and ph and do some cleaning cycles. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. ,achine runs a power purge. when fisihed press 9 then 9 to leave the mode. press ink etc. to run a quality test print.
If you still cant see any magenta, the ph is defective and needs replacing!
