It insists there is a Cartridge problem on the Printer............ In this Case take out the Paper from the Paper Feed Tray........ Unplug the Power Supply from the Printer.......... Remove both the Cartridges from the Printer.......... Now take a size 10 Envelope fold it so that it should become like a thin long strip........ Now Insert that Envelope on the left side corner of the Printer and move it from right to left and left to right as fast as u can for about 10 times.......... Now Insert the Ordinary Papers onto the Printer and insert both the catridges and Turn on the Printer...... Blinking Stopped...........Issue Resolved....... Still Blinking: Remove both the Cartridges take a Paper Towel turn the catridges direction so that u can see a Copper plate with small boxes on it....... Just wipe it twice or thrice with the Paper Towel.......... Now insert it and Power on the Printer and see whether the Lights are still blinking if it is still blinking...... Get the Printer Replaced!!!!!

Good Luck!!!!!

SOURCE: color cartridge

Turn off and unplug your printer from the wall for a few minutes. Plug it back in and turn it on? If that doesn't work, remove the color ink and make sure the contacts on the cartridge are not smudged, reinsert the ink. If that didn't work re-install the old color cartridge and reboot the computer then try to change to the new color. Let me know what happens, Good Luck, Tim

SOURCE: black cartridge not printing

This is what worked (so far) with my Dell1.gif AIO A940 printer1.gif that wouldn't print black ink.

It worked for awhile when I chose photo/glossy paper, but then it quit printing again (see below).

PRINT, PROPERTIES, PAPER SETUP, SPECIALTY PAPER, PHOTO/GLOSSY


I got it to print, again, by putting SEVERAL papers in the feeder (instead of just 1) - there is a sensor that is supposed to automatically detect paper type, and it might not be working right, especially with one or only a couple of sheets.

I re-cleaned cups and wiper between cups with syringe and meth. spirits. Also realised that the cartridges that I had tried that hadn't printed could have melted the jets, so found an old one , filled it right up, then withdrew at least 2cc with refill kit tools. Prints fine now.

There was a lot of sticky ink residue on the wiper (what I assume the strip between the two rest cups is) that could have blocked jets.

SOURCE: inkhead clogged. Have tried deep cleaning several

Inkjet printers do not like being left unused.
The print head may be blocked. Try several deep cleaning of the print head to see if it can clear the blocked print nozzles.
If none of this works then the print head needs to be replaced.
A new cartridge will not solve this problem.
NOTE the print head is not a cheap item, you may consider putting the money towards a new and better printer.

Will not print in red


Aftermarket cartridges are easily the number one service issue in my shop. You have clogged the printhead. If you run `cleaning, color' (deep cleaning is NOT recommended), then the `nozzle check' to see results, you should see improvement with each color. If you don't, stop and take your unit in for service. It may need a new printhead.

Epson Workforce 610 blocked (or malfunctioning) nozzles


With epsom ink jet printers the printhead is on the machine, not he cartridge as with many printers. This complicates things!
I suggest you get some cleaner cartridges put them in and run one single cleaning cycle each day until the cartridge is finished. Remember just One cleaning each day,,, this is to allow time for the cleaner to sit and "possibly" dissolve the blockage.
It is about your only chance of salvage.
An Ink jet printers worst enemy is sitting for long periods of time without printing on a regular basis, The ink dries in the print head nozzle!

Refilled pixma MP210 color cartridge. Now my printer will not print any color at all, only black


Maybe your printer cartridge that has been refilled got ink clogged. You can bring it to the store where you can let them clean it for you. It must be free for cleaning since it was refilled from them. Hope this help.

You can also clean your cartridge by following my instructions below:
BEFORE DOING BELOW INSTRUCTIONS,TRY TO CLEAN YOU CARTRIDGE FIRST USING THE DEEP CLEAN FEATURE OF YOUR PRINTER, THEN USE PRINT NOOZLE CHECK PATTERN.

1. Uninstall your cartridge.
2. Get a tissue paper.
3. Try to put the printer head over a small piece of tissue paper.

If you will see the three colors in the tissue(Cyan-close to blue, Magenta-close to red, and Yellow). It means it was not clogged, the problem is the chip of your color cartridge and needs to be replaced. But if the colors are blur and or nothing appears, it means the printhead of your cartridge is clog. You can proceed to step 4.

4. Try to put a little amount of water in a small piece of tissue paper and soak the printer head for a 2 min. Then remove it after.
5. Wipe the printer head with a dry tissue paper.
6. Reinstall the cartridge back to the printer.
7. Print a 4 basic colors, RED, BLUE, YELLOW and BLACK.
8. Clean the printer using the cleaning feature of your printer.
9. You can use deep cleaning twice. And Print a noozle print.
10. Hope it could help.

"Ink level Yellow Low"


where the cartridge sits in the machine, you will see a sensor that reads the cartridge ink level, either the sensor is dirty or needs to replaced, and did you try an new Brother cartridge?

Scanned pictures are printing with different colors


Are the ink cartridges refilled or compatible? They may be defective.
Are they installed correctly (not in the wrong slots)?
** Note that even if they are replaced it will take SEVERAL pages before the quality returns

RX680 shows ink is full but will not print lt mag, mag, or cyan


usually the problem occurs when the ink is running low and a big print job is being done. by then, the printer runs out of ink and starts sucking air into the tubes. If several cleanings dont help, try leaving it off for a couple days, turn it back on, try another cleaning and see what happens. if it still does not work, most likely the printhead will need to be cleaned which will cost about $40 - $65 if cartridges are need too.

If you are you using generic ink, that can cause the problem too.
