Changed black cartridge and now only colour printer will print in is blue/green


The black print head most likely is blocked with dried ink.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

> replaced the print head

Did you replace the tri-colour ink-cartridge, or did you replace the print-head mechanism?

Are you sure that the CYAN part of the ink-cartridge is not empty?

My hp deskjet 1280 will not print yellow


Hello, this is Harry from www.BusinessSpread.co.uk.
We had the exact same problem when printing, we used 3 different 78 colour ink cartages and they all said 100% full but did not work. We then had a look at the dates on the box and they were all expired so when buying ink from anywhere even PC world or Curry’s always look at the expiry date.
Today I went to PC world and purchased a new 78 ink which said expires July 2011 and it works perfectly fine.

Printing problem


You have either a clogged colour print head or a non-functioning print cartridge (only one colour working). If the printer has separate cartridges for different colours (and black) you can do a partial swap, replacing the ones that have failed, but start by running the command CLEAN PRINT HEADS from the printer options or controller panel, and watch for the quality to improve. You may have to clean the heads two or three times. If no change in the quality after two flushes, replace the cartridges with new ones.

Good luck...
