    Only black will print, can't get colour to print at all. Therefore, any text with colour comes out blank.

Why too much yellow and red no greens or blues ?


Inkjet printers use additive pigments. CMYK, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. It sounds like you're not getting any Cyan ink to the paper. Either your printer is out of Cyan ink, or your Cyan print head is clogged.

Go into your printer's Properties and run a Nozzle Check. It will print a series of lines with each color. There will probably be a big empty space where it tried and failed to print Cyan. You can try cleaning the print heads, but if you're getting NO Cyan that is unlikely to work.

If you're lucky, your printer is one of the ones that the print heads are built into the ink cartridge so replacing the cartridge will resolve the problem. If you're not, you might need to get it serviced (or probably more cost effective, buy a new printer).

Color mismatch and blurry/smudgy prints


Remove ink catridges and clean print head, shake inks and reinstall the inks, if problem persist, Uninstall the driver and reinstall. thats should help. Some time if the print head are dirty it prints multi color. You have to make sure the Head is Clean and install th inks properly.

I just changed all of the ink cartriges. Now the magenta and Cyan are not functioning....nothing. Everything is yellow and black, I cleaned the print heads twice, just wasting ink. I tried to align the...


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.

The answer to my error 5100 question was replace pinhead and clean. where is the "pinhead"??


You need to open the top cover, access the ink catridge case(Where catridges hung), then look for other objects that look like ink catridges but smaller, that's where the catridges feed ink (into the print heads) usually separate by colors cyan, magenta and yellow Usually Black is a lone. Replace the print Heads and clean where the dirty ink drops.

Printer does not print in color but only prints in


Run a "print-head-cleaning-cycle" -- the ink inside the cartridges is not getting through the ink-jets, and is not reaching the paper.

Either that, or the electronics inside the ink-jets are malfunctioning, i.e., not telling the ink-jets to shoot the ink out.

Very Faint Printouts


I find the best way to clean the heads is buy some cleaning cartridges as they have cleaning fluid in them and use them to clean it will take about 10 or more times to clean the heads then put the color ones back in and try again.
Just keep putting it on clean the head don't do a print out till at lest you have cleaned 10 or more times.

The following printhead(s) has a problem Black/Yellow[K/Y].


Simple solution is:

Replace the Black and Yellow Print Catridges. The print heads are mounted to the bottom of the catridges and these, depending on whther they're from HP or not. can have a hard time conducting electricity properly, and in turn.. spitting ink out properly.


Also happens often with aftermarket Catridges because HP puts chips on the catridge. be sure to put an HP catridge. Sometimes you get what you pay for :)
