Every time I do a printer head allignment, I get everything just fine except that the red isn't showing but a few lines. They are the same lines every time. I have changed the cartridges mutlipul times and cleaned all heads, but the same lines show up. I can't see what the issue is. I cleaned out the very dirty drip pan under where the Cartridges sit when not in use. cleaned the heads and the little copper dots that they connect to. What can I do to fix this situation? Thank you in advance.
Clean the copper dots again with a Q tip soaked in ink jet cleaner or 90% isopropyl alcohol. This could be a bad flex tape. I would insure that you have the correct replacement cartridge and make sure that it is seating correctly. Dust,paper particles and ink do not mix well. I would also blow the unit out with low pressure compressed air to eliminate the dust or contaminant issue. If it is a bad flex tape or electronic problem send it out for warranty service. If it is not still underwarranty, this may not be a user fixable problem and would require professional service or a new printer.
