Have you replaced the cartridge containing the cyan color in your printer?

You can deplete a single color. But if you think it is a false error message, I would try cleaning loose ink from the tray and cartridge itself. Especially on the contact areas. Brother printers are inexpensive and work well for small jobs, but ultimately jam, clog, and sometimes even break when run hard or doing large volumes.

HP Designjet Z2100 photo printer Cyan ink empty


Sounds like a problem with the chip or HP accidentally sold you an empty ink cart. Either way, they should replace it. We carry ink as well and if you ever need anymore, please let me know. Free shipping and less expensive. Damien @ iPrint Technologies - 818.700.7419

Epson ink cartridges, always empty?


Epson has gone to great pains to ensure that third-party cartridges dont work. They really did a good job. Sometimes their printers wont even recognize genuine Epson cartridges. I saw a CX8400 with a brand new cartridge claim it was out of cyan ink after printing one 4 x 6 photo. Then it would recognize any cyan cartridge. It had to go back to Epson for replacement.

Empty Cyan?


That just sounds like an empty INK cartridge - CYAN colour or BLUE as I call it.
There should be a Utilities file to open in the printer software that will check the INK levels in the printer. When one is empty this message appears -- Ray

I replaced an ink cartridge because the printer stopped working and showed a message that the old cartridge is empty. However after putting the new one in but the printer still refuses to work and shows...


maybe the cartridge is wrong, release it and clean the electrical contacts, put them again one by one, if notting happen, try this
Solution As the printer operates, it moves ink from the ink cartridges into a printhead reservoir. The printer does not deliver a message when an ink cartridge goes empty, because it still has ink in the reservoir. The printer continues printing until the ink level in the reservoir falls to a first trigger point - then a message appears advising the printer owner to Replace Cartridges Soon . At this point, other cartridges that are empty but have not reached the trigger point are also mentioned in the message, to save trips to the retailer. After the first trigger point, the printer can continue printing until ink levels in the reservoir reach a second trigger point. At the second trigger point there is only enough ink left to perform vital servicing tasks, and a new message appears, saying Ink Cartridges Empty . The options offered depend on the usable inks remaining. If no options are offered, the cartridges indicated must be replaced before printing can continue. The Ink Cartridges Empty options are described in the table below: Ink colors out Option Print mode possible All Cancel None Black

AND

Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all) Black only Continue with other colors Cyan/Magenta/Yellow mode (composite black)

Text and photo quality will differ from those printed when all colors are available Light Cyan or Light Magenta (either or both) Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all)

(Black still available) Print with black ink only Grayscale

What does cyan mean on a brother 240-c all in 1 printer it says replace cyan it wont do nothing


Cyan is the "blue/green" ink cartridge which is required to print in full color. Some printers stop working when one or more ink cartridges is empty. Get a complete set for some savings and for the next cartridge that gets empty. Printers are cheap now, it's the ink that gets costly.

Cyan Cartridge not working


Show empty or not recognized (cross sign)? Check connector at chip and at head carriage. Do replacement procedure form status monitor (how to..). Do replacement ink tank one by one with cyan ink first.

Light cyan ink didn't work on epson 1400


Get yourself a couple of sets of empty cartridges from cobraink.com.
It is so easy to fill your own from the removable rubber cap, on the top of the cartridge. Not to mention what you will be doing for the environment.
I have been using these for over a year and have saved a ton of money
This man also sells the ink that you will need. ALSO tell him to send them empty, otherwise he will automaticly send them full of "pigment "ink, because you want to use an ink dye

Brother MFC-5460CN won't scan because cyan ink empty


Brother is telling us that sometimes the cartridge can be installed too fast causing it not to read. Install it slowly to see if that helps. Also, power down, remove all the inks and power up. Add the inks one at a time when it asks.

Colour Ink Jet Cartridges emptying during a black ink print run


Hi,
If you go to your printer properties, there should be a setting whereby you have to select the option to "PRINT USING BLACK CARTRIDGE ONLY". Make sure this option is selected, otherwise your printer will use ALL colors even if you only print black.
Let me know if you need any further assistance.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

you have to change the cyan (blue) color, too. Its empty ;-)
