When i try to print in color, the red prints as yellow..i am not out of ink

Most printers have 4 inks: Magenta, Cyan, Yellow, and Black. Red requires the printer to print both Yellow and Magenta. If your Magenta isn't printing, red will show up yellow. When you say, "I am not out of ink", you may actually BE out of Magenta, or your magenta ink nozzles may be clogged. I don't know what brand of printer or model you have, so I can't give you exact directions to clean the nozzles. The printer driver may have that ability.

Why does my photos art C6230 all-in-one keep saying I need to replace the black ink when the back shows 100%? The printer says it is using colors to make black print

If the machine is just using magenta, yellow and cyan to make black then you get brown, not black, (that why you have a black image unit, because YMC will not make black, color system issue. unless the machine is using yellow,magenta, cyan, then black. Are you using 3rd party toner or OEM cartridges? Did you replace the cartridge before it was required?

26.001 error hp 4000

26.0:01 is a bad contact in the Ink Supply System for the yellow ink cartridge. (This can be caused by using non HP OEM ink)

Check that the ISS to Cartridge cable is not damaged and is fully connected to the Ink Supply Tubes PCA.
You can also try switching the magenta contacts with the yellow contacts and see if the problem stays with the yellow, or you now have a magenta problem.
If the problem stays with the yellow, then you will need to replace the Ink Supply Tubes and Trailing Cable.
If the problem moves to the magenta, then you just need to repair or replace the contacts (may just need cleaned)

Good luck !

(My money is on bad compatible or refilled yellow ink cartridges)

My xerox phaser 8560 MFP is showing system error 09,037.45:54135 and I can't figure out how to fix the problem.

Ink count flag stuck after melting 2.5 Yellow Ink Sticks.

Initial Actions
• Check that the Ink Sticks are genuine Xerox.
• Check for obstructions in the Ink Wells.
• Check the Ink Loader data (P/J0150) and power (P/J5) connections.
• Verify the Ink Sticks advance in the Ink Loader.
• If the problem persists, follow the procedure below.

Step 1.Check that the ink stick is able to advance in the ink loader chute. Check for broken or wrong type ink sticks.
Are the Ink Sticks loading properly?
Yes)Go to Step 2.
No)Remove any blockage and/or replace the ink stick. Run clear ISC Fault test to clear the error.
This must be performed following an ink loader replacement.
Step 2.Test the appropriate Ink Melt Heater.
Run the Service Diagnostics Ink Melt [1,2,3,4] test.
• 1 = Yellow
• 2 = Cyan
• 3 = Magenta
• 4 = Black
Did the test pass?
Yes)Replace the Printhead
No)Replace the Ink Loader

The magenta won't work. i put a new cartridge, cleaned headers, test printed. all the other colors work find but, NO magenta comes out.

This sounds like you are using an aftermarket or refilled ink cartridge. If this is the case, try putting in a new OEM magenta ink cartridge and running the deep cleaning utility 3 times. This usually clears a clogged nozzle caused by non-OEM loaded inks.
Let me know if this clears the problem. Thanks.

Xerox error code 09,038.46:350??

Hi. The error code you are referencing is referring to Black Ink Stick Count Failure.
  1. Make sure you are using Phaser 8500 ink sticks
  2. Make sure the ink sticks slide properly
  3. Remove any broken or partial ink sticks from the ink-loading bin
If the fault code is still displayed you will need to contact support to schedule a service call.

Please check out the online support at\support

Photosmart C5280. Instructions on photo cartridge 348 say remove both black and colour cartridges, then install photo cartridge in right hand cartridge holder. Printer screen then tells me to install...

Your printer uses the following cartridges:

HP 74 - Black ink
HP 75 - Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow ink
HP 99 - Photo Black, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta

You need Photo Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta to print photos. To accomplish this you install the HP 99 photo cartridge where your HP 74 black cartridge usually goes and you keep the HP 75 color cartridge where it's at. I don't know why your printer told you to remove both cartridges, then reinstall the HP 75 color cartridge.
