Try to check the level of ink..
do this step:
The print cartridge contacts may not be cleaned. Clean the print cartridge contacts as described below or, if necessary, replace the cartridges:

  1. Open the printer top access door. The printer carriage will move to the center.
  2. Remove the USB cable from the back of the printer.
  3. Remove the print cartridges from the printer.
  4. Unplug the power cord. (Do not press the Power button to turn off the printer).
  5. Verify that the cartridge reference meets the specifications for the printer. Cartridge reference can be found in the User Guide.
  6. Verify that the protective plastic tape has been removed from the print cartridge
  7. Locate the copper circuit strip on the back of the cartridge.
  8. Clean the copper circuit strip with a dry foam-rubber swab or a lint-free cloth. Do not wipe the nozzle end of the cartridge or touch the nozzle plate. note: do not used any glass cleaner coz it will cause the damage of the print cartidge
  9. Reconnect the power cord to the printer.
  10. Turn on the printer if it does not turn on automatically.
  11. Insert the print cartridge into the cradle at a slight upward angle until a resistance is fallen.
  12. Close the top access door. The printer carriage should move to the left.
  13. If the printer light is on steady, perform a self test report as follows:
    1. Press and hold the Power button, and then open and close the top cover four times.
    2. Release the Power button.
  14. If the printer light continues to blink, replace the print cartridge or cartridges one at a time.
Try this steps and give me feedback.....

Horizontal pink lines on print every inch or so.


Do the magenta lines go outside the picture into the white border? If so, the print head has gone bad, and the cost to replace a print head is more than a new printer.

Why xerox phaser 6360dn is printing only pink


Anonymous, Have you tried to print the test print, is that Pink?
Have you tried too print the configuration sheet, is that Pink?
Have you tried to run purge sheets are they Pink?
If the answer is yes to all the above then has the printer been moves whilst still hot or warm, you could have mixed the colours.
If all the colours were mixed together then you would have a dark dirty Brown. Further investigation needed.
Good Luck.

Printer is printing with a pink hue


Your printer mixes the 3 colours in the tri-colour ink-cartridge to achieve each colour.

So, printing in 'PINK' suggests that one of the other 2 "primary" colours is OUT-OF-INK.

Replace the ink-cartridge.

When I print out picture, pictur came out so many pink stripe across the picture.


There probably is nothing wrong with your PINK ink-cartridge.
It's one (or two) of the other colour ink-cartridges that either are EMPTY or having CLOGGED ink-jet mechanisms.

Run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle.

Why doesn't my A920 injet print colors properly--green comes out pink, and I still have half the ink left in my color cartridge.


1) Could be your printer settings, check out your printer preferences to make sure your not printing a negative or make sure you colour corrections is enabled.

2) If the colour cartridge is a 3 in 1, just one of the colours may have run out. Giving a distorted picture. That means a new cartridge. The best way to check that is to go to your printer tool box and print out a test sheet. There should be 3 colours (Magenta, Yellow and Blue) and Black. If one's missing, the cartridge is out one colour.

I bought new ink black and color but i try to print in pink and i can't how can i print in pink


Hi alexgallo01
Do you get other colours except pink?
If that is the case,reasons could be:
1. there is not enough RED or BLUE in the cartridge.
2. you haven't selected pink colour on the text or images you are trying to print.
If you are typing a document highlight the text you want in pink, and choose PINK color for the font.
Then print the document. The printer will use color closest to your choice, if it does not have the exact color.
Hope this will help.
If it help you, please give a rating
