If your ink cartridges are all full then the print head which houses the ink cartridges is probably plugged, meaning the nozzels in the print head that spray the ink onto the paper are plugged by dried ink or debris. By flipping the gray lever up on the printer carriage you can reach into the carriage and pull the print head out...after removing the ink cartridges of course. This removal can be a bit awkward but it will come out with a little wiggling. When removed you can flip the print head over and view the ink nozzles. these nozzles will need to be soaked in warm water. Stand the print head in a saucer or shallow bowl and pour a small amount of warm water in the saucer or bowl. Let it sit in about an eight inch of water for 20 minutes and then set it out on a pile of paper towels. You'll see a lot of color soak into the towels. Repeat this process until no more pigment drains out. Don't get water up on the contact pad on the rear of the print head. Dry assembly with towels and you could blow dry it also with a hair drier...but not too hot. Reinstall and run 2 cleaning cycles. The degree of the plugging and the age of the print head will determine the effectiveness of this maintenance. If you are not successful the first time try the cleaning again. Otherwise you can order a new printhead for around $50. I have done both for my MP730 successfully. Hope this helps!!

Dear Dahcota; If it has a single color cartridge, there are three components inside the cartridge-red, green, blue, and all colors are a superimposition of these 3 basic colours RGB in different proportions. It looks like the red component has run dry. So, what you get is the color without the red component. If its showing all cartridges as being full, sometimes these levels shown are inaccurate. Try changing the entire color cartrigde or red component, then see if you still have the same problem. What I am not sure is if the red cartridge is a separate entity . If the red is separate, and changing it does not improve things, the connection in the printer might be faulty. Go to www.hp.com and browse for the correct make ask them online there, It should really be okay, once you have replaced the red or entire color cartridge is it is a single unit with all 3 colours

SOURCE: Cyan ink cartridge is flashing, only prints in blue.

Hi cmwierson, I would suggest you update your printer drivers, try this, follow instructions exactly as written:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file - . Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done.

SOURCE: Black ink won't print.

Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

My ink cartridges are full but when I print something it does not print blue or green. What can I do?


Assuming you've recently changed your ink cartridges the first thing you can try is seeing if you've placed the cartridges properly (did you remove all the plastic covering the cartridge so the ink can flow into the printer?)

If you haven't actually changed your cartridges in a while the printer might be registering the wrong ink levels. This will result in your cartridges not being as full as you think.

Another thing you could try is checking the printer head for anything that's keeping the ink from flowing. By printer head I mean the thingy that houses your ink cartridges. Perhaps there's some old dried up ink blocking the way?

What does cyan mean on a brother 240-c all in 1 printer it says replace cyan it wont do nothing


Cyan is the "blue/green" ink cartridge which is required to print in full color. Some printers stop working when one or more ink cartridges is empty. Get a complete set for some savings and for the next cartridge that gets empty. Printers are cheap now, it's the ink that gets costly.

R1900 adds blue-green tint to my photo prints


Epson doesn't like Generic Cartridges.

Hello, In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. That sounds like your problem. Also in Purchasing the Brother's . Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, etc. These printers have a chip, that will detect if it is Generic or Genunie. When using Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, but you have to fill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Green is printing blue


If Green is printing as blue, you are not getting any yellow ink. Blue + Yellow make Green.

Please check to make sure you are not out of ink in the yellow cartridge and that the nozzles are clean.

I have a epson stylus printer C65 series. I ran out of black ink so i changed the ink cartridge and it will only print colour not black now.


I have an Epson stylus 6000 series, second hand but was working just fine. I changed the ink cartridges and now the color won't print. Utilities shows all cartridges full, but only black and pale green-blue print. While it was printing color it was drinking the ink, but that's another story.
