Something may have gotten stuck in the blue ink and clogged it. If the cartridge is new you may be able to send it back and get it replaced, If not you may just be out of blue ink.

SOURCE: My Lexmark Z600 has stopped using the colour 27

apparently the default printing color has been changed, you have to change it back either from "control panel/ printers /right click on your printer and click properties, and choose color for printing." or you can do it per printing job, when it shows u the printing options, (like number of copies and other (basically same window from the control panel). if you do it from the control panel whatever you choose, that would be the default, otherwise it is per job change and is not permanent.

The problem with your printer is the print head. Usually you have to run the clean nozzle thing 5 or 6 times to clean the print head nozzles and if there's still no improvement after that then print head needs to be changed for the printer to work properly. The bad news is that a print head costs almost as much as a new printer.

    It could be the print setting on your computer.
    If you're using Windows, with your document open, go to File > Properties/Preferences. In the Print Setup tab, make sure to select "Print using all available ink" in the Ink Use section.
    On Mac you can select Color in Print Setting in any expanded print dialog.

    Epson xp 305 help


    It's quite likely that at some point in time you will have attempted to print in black only to receive an error message that you cannot print until a colour cartridge is replaced.
    "If ink is not in the tubes from the head to the cartridge, air will be sucked in and therefore cause damage to the print head. This is because the nozzles are in the print head and not in the cartridge. "
    What Epson are basically saying is... if this safeguard was not in place, and you sent a print request for black when a colour cartridge was empty, there is a risk of air being pulled into the printhead. This air will ruin the vacuum effect needed for the printhead to pull ink in, meaning your printhead would be at risk of never printing again.
    Additionally, if any air is allowed go get into the aformentioned tubes from the head to the cartridge, any remaining ink will coagulate. Just in case you're not a scientist - coagulation in a tube/cartridge is bad, and will lead to you not being able to print again with that cartridge, or to a blocked nozzle/printhead which will require a significant amount of cleaning cycles to budge.

    Why doesn't my A920 injet print colors properly--green comes out pink, and I still have half the ink left in my color cartridge.


    1) Could be your printer settings, check out your printer preferences to make sure your not printing a negative or make sure you colour corrections is enabled.

    2) If the colour cartridge is a 3 in 1, just one of the colours may have run out. Giving a distorted picture. That means a new cartridge. The best way to check that is to go to your printer tool box and print out a test sheet. There should be 3 colours (Magenta, Yellow and Blue) and Black. If one's missing, the cartridge is out one colour.

    Too much red


    I'm assuming that the colour cartridge is a three in one. Blue, Yellow and Magenta.

    When printing a colour document, the printer automatically balances colour mixtures from the three primary colours listed above. Should a print out be too red, its probably because its run out of yellow and/blue.

    The best way to check is to print out a test page, you should get a block for each of the colours and black. If one's missing, there's your answer.

    Colour cartridge missing but I only want to print


    No you cannot. Each one of your cartridges is smart chipped. When this cartridge registers as empty it acts as an on/off switch thus turning the printer off.'

    You need to replace the empty cartridge in order to print.

    Go printer settings and check option to print only black.

    Printer will only print in purple/pink,enstalled new colour cartridge configured as required,still no change. help thank you


    Print out a calibration sheet, either from the menu, or press photo and cancel at the same time. Your calibration sheet is probably missing a color. You should have black, blue, yellow, and magenta(pink). If you're missing any of these colors, your printhead is clogged. Try doing a printhead cleaning. Print another calibration sheet, if the color is still missing, you need a new printhead. Call Kodak.

    Despite installing new cartridges,cleaning and priming, my HP Deskjet 710C prints pink only. Using Windows XP test page shows no blue, or yellow.


    hi,
    do you installing both cartridges (black and colour)?
    if you do so, my advice is to reinstall the driver for your printer.

    if you install ONLY the black cartridge, and the color cartridge remain the old one, (which in my opinion is the present case), your problem is from the color cartridge.
    The color cartridge have 3 colors and this are: cyan (some kind of blue), yellow and magenta (similar with a pink color, but more intense). The problem is simple: in your color cartridge has left only the magenta color, cyan and yellow tanks are empty.

    have 2 options:
    1. buy a new color cartridge
    2. refill the color cartridge.
