Check the following thread, it might apply to your problem. and just as a printer can be fooled to show a low level ink, I guess it can happen the other way around. http://www.fixya.com/problems-solutions/t103191,p342983/Epson-Stylus-Photo-R300-InkJet-Printer.aspx Good luck

Hi Manavoc,

I will explain you the cause for it.

It prints in yellow first and then override with black for better quality. This is the reason your color ink gets empty.

I have a Brother HL 4070 CDW. I have replace the Magenta cartridge but it seems to be spilling ink. When I print in color, the images are not good.


Make sure that the toner cartridges are installed properly.Make sure that the drum unit is installed properly.Make sure that the belt unit is installed properly. Perform the calibration. Adjust the colour by using the custom setting in the driver and by using the control panel. Colours the printer can print and colours you see on a monitor are different. The printer may not be able to reproduce the colours on your monitor. Make sure that you use paper that meets the printer's specifications. Put in a new drum unit.Put in a new belt unit. Check the printer's environment. Conditions such as high humidity and high temperatures may cause this print quality problem.Identify the colour causing the problem and put in a new toner cartridge. If the problem continues, put in a new drum unit. Also visit >>

Printer keeps showing Office Jet 8500 Wireless


The printer wants to align the print cartridge, if you print out the alignment sheet, and then following instruction, place on scanner and scan it in etc, and it fails to callibrate, I have found it is because some of the information on the calibration page is not being printed correctly so therefore machine cant calibrate the print heads from it, this is normally due to poor quality cartridges or failing/empty print cartridge or cartridges, these use two I think, and I bet one of the colours from the colour isn't printing properly, replace colour cart if blacks look good. Below is a link to HP so you can see what a alignment page needs to look like to pass calibration, compare yours and you may find a colour is dodgy on it.

I have just installed a new black cartridge. It prints ok from my computer but if I want to photocopy I cannot get rid of the "press enter to align cartridges' message which abhorts after starting


you will have to replace your colour cartridge as some of the colours r missing which r required to complete the allignment procedure.or u can just get your colour cartridge refilled from any local refilling store.so it will get proper colour to complete the alligning

I changed the black ink cartridge as per instructions and the printer printed an alignment paper which i then placed in the printer for alignment but the alignment failed


the page should be absolutely new.and the scanner glass should be absolutely cleaned.and 1 main thing u replaced your black cartridge.but if your colour cartridge is empty it will not accept the allignment complete thing.it will show allignment failed as the particular colour is missing in your allignment sheet which is required to get the allignment complete.
