Switch the machine on. Press the "Ink Management" key to the left of the screen. Go down to "Cleaning" and press ok. Chose the colour you would like to clean and press ok. The cleaning process uses a tiny amount of ink. Hope this solves your problem Good luck.

Print is blurry. Tried a new cartridge, no help. Will print from 3 computers, but it is blurry. Any ideas?


Depending on the printer, remove the cartridge and then the print head under it. Run it under hot water until the water runs clear. Dry with kitchen towel and the on the computer go to printer properties and run a clean cycle, then run a test pattern. Also check that your paper is dry. Better quality paper produces better quality prints.

Mx432 Printing is blurry


Hi Steven Quick im happy to help you

When you say many documents, we talk about an amount of 200 pages, this is the case, you need to replace another cartridge.

If not that much, I can recommend to clean injectors to try to solve the problem, if you have clogged nozzles.

I just replaced the drum and the toner, now there is a dark streak down the middle of every page that prints, What is the problem?


the ink where it come out maybe dirty as it usually does when changing
go to the print operation and run a clean up system and see if the colours come up ok
this method may use a bit of your ink but if in business needs this has to be done and proves ok
if problem persists , than take the toner out and with a bit of alcohol wipe and a dry wioe afterwards, clean the outlet

Prints blurry every other line with black color


Hi,

Is it the ink cartridge contacts you already cleaned? If so, then you can also clean it using the tools menu from the printer panel:

-press setup menu, then go to tools
-select clean print cartridge and press ok
-it will print a test page. If the printout is good, you can try printing again.

I hope this helps.

Newish cartridge, PM say's it's empty


These types of cartridge problems usually occur when the printer hasn't been cleaned. We all tend to neglect cleaning the dust out of our printers and even a small amount of dust can clog an ink cartridge. You should go ahead and change it and clean the printer real good inside the way the manufacture suggest cleaning it. Good Luck.
