Any chance you just changed the magenta cartridge? Your problem sounds like a defective cartridge, which happens often if you are using a refilled or remanufactured unit. From the front control panel you can go to troubleshooting menu and then pq troubleshooting to print a set of pages that consists of"

1 page of each color cartridge
1 white page
1 configurationpage
1 page that tells you how to use the pq troubleshooting pages

If the sepia problem is accross all of these pages then if most likley is the magenta cartridge that is bad. If it is only one page that is bad the color that is bad will be the bad cartridge.

I have an Hp CM6030f MFP that said to change the yellow toner. When I changed the yellow toner which was more than half full it is now stuck in calibration mode.


  1. Power cycle the printer and Verify the "Replace Cartridge?? message is still present.
  2. Remove ALL the cartridges (Toner and Drum cartridges).
  3. Power cycle the printer
  4. Install one by one of the cartridges when the printer requests them
  5. Verify that the new cartridge is recognized by printing the Supplies Status Page.

HP colour laserjet 1600: I turn on printer and it switches from initialising to calibrating withour printing documents


Does the printer ever come to ready? If not, have you recently changed any of the toner cartridges? We have had cases with generic or refilled toners that will cause the printer to not be able to calibrate.

The colours on our HL-4040CN have gone all strange - when we perform colour calibration the colours go either red or green. All toners are new and the drum has been replaced recently as well. We do a lot...


Hi

We need to isolated the problem on what cause ink cartridge not print in color. When even you installed new cartridges, It is necessary to run the print nozzle to clean the print head. Also, please try to clean the print head manually by removing all the ink cartridges and rub the print head into a white paper with alcohol until ink flows and then return it back and run the print nozzle for 2 times.

Then try to print again.

If it does not help you, please let me know to give you more help.

Samsung CLP-315 colour laser printer - is it true that you cannot print only with the black toner cartridge, if one or more of the colour cartridges is empty? I only need to print black!


Yes, it is true that most of Color printers will not allow you to print document if one or more of the recommended Cartridge of the printer is empty or removed from the printer. for printing only black, the better option will be to change your printer settings while printing a document. ex: when on a document ,and your press Ctrl+P for document printing, there is a option where you can select print color as black and the printer will print your document in Black only.

Printer not printing giving a black toner catridge not installed error and a new catridge is installed



Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Put in new ink and it is telling me out of ink and will not let me print anythings.. How do you reset ink


Simple oly when you know how ;-)

I think you have a slight blockage, to solve:- (dont know which printer or PCyou have so ill do my best)

Click on Start
All programms
Pick your printer from the list
Open the software
You will have 2,3 or 4 options depending on your printer spec.

You need to 1st remove the cartridge
Print 1 page with no INK a message will pop up saying con not print need ink for example.
You then NEED to calibrate your cartridge, you need to find:-
1 Align Cartridge/Nozzle - Unblocks, and Sets up. (Syncronize)
2 Calibrate Black - unblock black
2 Calibrate Colour - unblock colours
3 Print test Page - See how it looks
5 Align again - Unblocks everything giving good ink flow and gets the print right close to 100%
6 print test page!

It shoud now work ;-)

Good Luck xxx

IMPERFECT PRINTING


You could try other toner cartridges. If the problem is with a specific colour you can just change that one. If this doesnt work you could put the printer through a few calibrations and see if this helps
