If it worked before changing the ink-cartridges, then it probably is _NOT_ a case of "clogged" ink-jets in the print-head.

Did you remove the plastic "sealing" tape from the new cartridges, before you installed them?
If not, then no ink can leave the cartridge.

Which model of HP printer? Maybe, you got a "dud" of a new ink-cartridge.
Take it out.
Take an old, thick, section of newspaper, and lie it flat on your table.
Dampen a paper-towel, and put it onto the newspaper.
Touch the ink-cartridge to the paper-towel -- it should "bleed" some ink onto the towel.
Not much ink, but the newspaper is there to protect the surface of the table.
If no "bleeding", then the ink-cartridge is the problem.

Yellow won't print


First try to replace the yellow toner cartridge. After that, try re-seating the cartridge (take out the cartridge and place it back in carefully making sure it is seated correctly). If this does not resolve the issue, clean the print heads and connections on the cartridge. This can be done by removing the cartridge and swabbing the connections with a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. Also, while the cartridge is removed, swab the connections to the cartridge that are inside the printer where the cartridge is seated.

I have a Brother MFC 3340CN and 1940CN,fax,print,copier I was working fine and then all at one message was yellow out of ink please replace and start again. It has a brand knew yellow ink cartiage in it...


The ink that is given to you when you buy a new machine is not the same as if you went out and bought ink. The "starter" ink cartridges are not filled completely (that is a marketing gimmick to get you to buy more quickly). When you say "NEW" do you mean "new, never been used", or "new, just got it last week"?


If it's never been used, be sure that you have removed the protective tape from that cartridge. If it's been removed then the cartridge its self could have a problem or the machine could be at fault (not correctly reading the ink). You choices are to return it to where you got it, or buy a yellow cartridge and replace it.


If it was working and stopped after a very short time (a week or two) I would get a new yellow and try it.


For your sake I hope it's the protective tape was forgotten, it happens quite often.

Solution: Install the print head and ink tanks correctly iP3000 / i560

Seat the print head Below is the procedure for seating the print head and ink tanks:
  1. Power on the printer.

  2. Open the paper output tray and top cover.

    Note: Gently open the paper output tray while holding it.

  3. After confirming that the print head holder has moved to the center, open the inner cover.

  4. Remove the orange tape securing the print head lock lever, and raise the print head lock lever.

    Note: If the top cover is left open for more than 10 minutes, the print head holder will move to the right. If this occurs, close the top cover once and then re-open it.

  5. Remove the print head from its package and remove the orange protective cap.

    set_print_head_1.jpg

    set_print_head_2.jpg

    <1> Electrical Contacts and Print Head Face's Nozzle Area
    <2> Ink Supply Filters

    Note: To avoid any damage, do not touch the print head face's nozzle area, electrical contacts, and ink supply filters. After removing the protective cap, set the print head into the print head holder immediately. Do not re-attach the protective cap after it has been removed.

  6. Set the print head into the print head holder, and lower the print head lock lever until a click sound is made.

    ip3000_printhead_install.gif

    Next, install the ink tanks.

  7. Remove the cyan ink tank (BCI-6C) from its package. Pull the orange tape in the direction of the arrow to remove the wrap film completely.

    set_print_head_4.jpg

    Note: Remove the orange tape completely. If the orange tape is not completely removed, it may interfere with printing.

    <2> Removed incorrectly

  8. Hold the ink tank as shown in the image below. Twist the orange protective cap in the direction of the arrow, and remove it.

    Note: Remove the protective cap while holding it, so that fingers will not be stained by the ink.

  9. Insert the ink tank into the slot at the right end, and push down on the PUSH mark on top of the ink tank until a click sound is made. Install the other ink tanks in the same manner.

  10. Close the inner cover and top cover.

Yellow ink will not print


On the Brother MFC series printers it uses remote ink trays as you will know, instead of having print heads directly on the ink cartridge. Whilst this approach makes it cheaper to produce the ink, and easier to change the cartridge, it can make it difficult to clear clogs.

There are several things you can do which may help, but B. and C. are at your own risk. All steps assume you have a new yellow ink cartridge.

A. In paint or another program, create a full page yellow image and keep printing it out. See if it gets any better after each print. If it does, continue until it seems to be working fine.

B. If you can manage to get to the print head, you can get a cue tip, dip it in rubbing alcohol and gently clean the print head. Leave 20 minutes to dry, and then do step A. again.

C. (AS A VERY LAST RESORT AT YOUR OWN RISK. THIS IS GOING TO RUIN YOUR YELLOW INK CARTRIDGE SO USE AN OLD YELLOW ONE IF YOU CAN) If steps A. and B. fail, you can put a "little" rubbing alcohol in the Yellow Ink Cartridge, and keep trying step A. If Yellow starts printing again, swap to a yellow cartridge that does not have rubbing alcohol in it. You are now going to have to cycle through many pages to clear the rubbing alcohol from the ink lines.

Note that if you keep cleaning the cartridges, it is going to use a lot of ink, and may actually hinder solving your yellow ink problem.

Good uck

Alarm flashes ink emptyhas ink! color was printing only yellow/green now prints only red/pink!


any chance it has dried out? run the test / head cleaning / did you reset the cartridge when you replaced it? generally if one or two colors work - the problem is the ink cartridge or the head for the colors not working. Did you remove the "tape" on the new cartridge?

Don't know how to move the cartridges to replace the ink.


Please follow the instructions below to ensure correct installation:
  1. Lower the printer's output tray and open the top cover.
  2. Connect the power cable to the printer.
7a2fb58.jpg
And switch on the printer.

3fc5f43.jpg

The print heads will now move to the replacement position. If they do not move to a change position press the Red ink button on the printer.

  • Lift up the ink cartridge clamps.

  • 41c16be.jpg
    090c659.jpg

    Before you open the new ink cartridge package, shake it four or five times. Then remove it from the package.

    6e11c23.jpg

    Do not touch the green chip
    on the side of the cartridge. This can damage the ink cartridge.

    157f94d.jpg
    Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the ink cartridge.

    3400723.jpg
    You must remove the yellow tape from the cartridge before installing it; otherwise, print quality may decline or you may not be able to print.

    If you have installed an ink cartridge without removing the yellow tape, take the cartridge out of the product remove the yellow tape, and then reinstall it.

    Do not remove the transparent seal from the bottom of the cartridge or the label on the cartridge; otherwise the cartridge may become unusable or ink will leak.

    bbca8a8.jpg
    Place the ink cartridge into the cartridge holder with the bottom down. Then push down the ink cartridge until it clicks into place.
    38585f1.jpg
    Repeat steps 4 to 6 for each ink cartridge.


  • Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place
  • 5ee2013.jpg
      If you find it difficult to close the cartridge cover, make sure all the cartridges are firmly seated. Press down on each cartridge until you hear it click into place. Do not attempt to force the cover closed.

    1. Close the printer cover and press the ink or start button to begin charging the system. Charging can take up to three minutes and is complete when the power light stops flashing.
    While the ink system is charging do not switch off the printer.

    Blank pages coming out of i850 with new printhead


    Alarm / Power light flashes orange 7 times consecutively is a Print head error so it sounds like you did the right thing.

    I would reseat the printhead along with each one of the ink cartridges. Make sure that you removed the tape from the bottom of each of the ink cartridges and try it again. After installing the new printhead, you should have run a printhead cleaning cycle immediately after installing.

    Issue: Certain colors are missing or no ink prints on the paper
    Solution: Install / replace the recommended ink tanks correctly i550 / i850

    Untitled Document How to install / replace the ink tanks
    The ink tanks suitable for the printer are as follows;


    Black Ink Tank BCI-3eBK
    Cyan Ink Tank BCI-3eC
    Magenta Ink Tank BCI-3eM
    Yellow Ink Tank BCI-3eY


    Note: There are two ink tank label designs.
    Operation procedures are shown with label design A.

    labelsa.jpg Replacement Procedure


    1. Check that the printer is powered on, and open the front cover. Wait until the print head moves to the center.

    2. Remove the empty ink tank by pushing the tab on the ink tank.

    Note: When doing this, do not remove the print head. When replacing multiple ink tanks, it is recommended to replace one at a time to avoid inserting them into the wrong slots.
    (The image is an example using i850.)

    removingtank850.jpg
    3. Remove the new ink tank from its package. Pull the orange tape in the direction of the arrow to remove it completely, and remove the shrink-wrap film.

    Note: Remove the orange tape completely. If the tape remains, printing may not be performed properly.

    removingtape.jpg
    Confirm that the orange tape is completely removed from the ink tank, as shown in image 1. If the tape is similar to the sample in image 2, remove the remaining portion of the tape so that it looks like the sample shown in image 1.

    orangetape.jpg
    (1): Correct

    (2): Incorrect (where the arrow indicates)
    4. Slowly twist the orange protective cap in the direction that the arrow indicates, and remove it. To avoid ink adhering to your fingers, brace the orange protective cap while removing it.

    removecap.jpg


    5. Insert the new ink tank to the print head by holding it at a slight angle.

    Note: Confirm that the ink tanks are installed in the right order according to the labels on the print head.
    inkorder.jpg
    6. Press down on the top of the ink tank until a click sound is made.
    krik.jpg
    7. Close the front cover. The next time the printer performs printing, it will automatically start print head cleaning. The power lamp will flash while cleaning is performed. Until cleaning completes, do not perform other operations.
