2. Press the Ink button on the control panel and select CLEANING press OK.



3. Press the up or down arrow key to select Color press ok and press Black Start.


*After the cleaning process the printer will ask you if the quality is OK, press up or down to select yes or no, and it will ask you whether black or color is ok, once you have selected you're answer press Black or Color START to print another test page. Compare the 1st and 2nd test page if it's improving, you may need to do this 3-5 times or until you get a better quality

Hi there!
If the test page from pc or the machine test page doesnt show black, what you can do is to clean the printhead. To do that press the Ink Management button on the control panel and select cleaning press ok then press the up or down arrow key to select Black press ok and press Black Start. After the cleaning process print another test page. Compare the 1st and 2nd test page if it's improving, you may need to do this 3-5 times.

My printer will not print in colour. The test page shows colour is ok.


If the test page is working in colour then it's most likely your printer settings. Go into the settings when printing and ensure that greyscale or black/white printing is not turned on.

was the colour ink printing verywell before you change it? go to your printer properties setting if your printer monochrome setting is on.well remove your ink & use a soft tissue to clean your printer ink cup softly & clean the ink terminals (contacts)too. use a soft tissue on he ink nozzle if the three colour appeare on the tissue .then install back & run a self test if the test prints colour , then you can reinstall your printer & run a testpage.
