Hey tootie, the only thing possible are try head cleaning, if it dont work you can buy cleaning cartridges to fix it there only like £5 you will find below. its very common on all newer epson printers. afraid if that dont work its a new printer job as the last time i priced new heads for a epson at trade they wanted £45+vat. All the best John http://froogle.google.co.uk/froogle?q=epson+cleaning+cartridge+c86&hl=en&um=1&sa=X&oi=froogle&ct=title

Only prints in green and blue

You are more than likely out of magenta (red) ink. That printer uses a tri-color cartridge, and it has cyan (blue) magenta (red) and yellow ink. Green is blue + yellow-therefore you do have those two colors; since it will not print anything red or black you will need to replace both cartridges.

Pictures coming out green

On a picture that you have printed, when you see an area of green, what color should it be? You probably have reduced flow of one of the "balancing" colors. Blue, Yellow and Red add up to Black. If your picture is supposed to be almost black and you don't have enough red, the color will pull toward the blue and yellow, giving it a green tint.

New tri-color ink cartridge prints only red

Are the Jets clean and unobstructed? Depending on printer model, have you cleaned your print heads? Consider also it may be a defective cartridge.

Prints all yellow, with some blue and black, no brown

the problem is very simple the magenta ink the cartridge is over or the head is been blocked from where the magenta ink comes out,
because red colour requires ---yellow plus magenta(pink)----to make it red.and ----dark yellow plus magenta(pink) -------- for brown colour.

Serious Color Printer Issues

This is to do with the way in which the cyan, magenta, yellow and black ink is mixed to produce all the colours e.g. to print "red" requires both magenta and yellow ink. Thus, if the magenta ink is not flowing for some reason, for example, the "red" will print out as yellow. So, make sure all your cartridges and nozzles are working properly.
