REPLACE THE PRINTER AND SAVE YOURSELF A HUGE MESS

Understand when I suggest replacing the printer, it isn't that you can't fix it or that I'm not answering your question. But to do so will require cleaning every inch of the internal components. The ink will stain everything it touches and you'll need a smock, a work area, and probably gloves.

See what happens is that where the print head parks there is an ink absorber and below it is an ink well. The ink absorber is a sponge like arm that cleans off the cartridge and the well catches the loose ink. Inkjet printers are for the most part not designed to last past a few years, so few printers have a method for emptying these. When they become full the printer will start leaking ink in torrents but will continue to function normally for quite a while until it fills every nook and cranny of the printer. While all you notice is a sightly higher consumption of ink.

By the time you start visibly seeing the ink come out of the printer, the inside is a huge mess, and when I say huge I mean without cursing, words just can't express how nasty and ink smeared it is.

Hi

This could be either a leak from colour cartridge or could be because there is still some blue ink in the printer from the last colour item printed?

Black and white only


Well - it's fixed - but no thanks to anything I did.  It's just all of a sudden working fine again.  I tried three different dvd's the other night, and all were black and white.  But last night the same dvd's were back to colour.  Who knows?
But thanks for asking.

When was the last time you changed colour cartridge?
Your colour cartridge has probably run out. Once you install new colour cartridge, it should print in colour.

I cannot print but i have only the black cartridge but i dont have the yellow cyan ang midget


Most modern printers use some colour when printing Black and therefore will not print if ANY ink cartridge is showing as empty.

Unless your printer has a setting for using Black ink only (this is not the same as printing a black and white document), then you will need to purchase and install the colour cartridges before printing can take place. The good thing about this is that very little colour ink is used when printing black and white documents - so they should last a long time.

Good luck.
