This will also happen when using a printer with a ink system spilling ink under the cartridges, then colors won’t come out as they must.
As been said before, ink cartridges works with ink injectors, that expulse ink by really little space the cartridge has in its head, whether the cartridge ink or any other factor obstructing it can cause colors not to come out as they must or as you see them in the screen.

Next we will show you some possible solutions you can use to get colors to comes out as they should and you see them in the screen, it could be that the cartridge is completely damaged and there is not solution.

Clean the ink cartridges:

If you have refilled the ink cartridges and after doing so colors are coming out different or with problem in some parts of the page, in the first thing you must think is that the cartridge might be dirty and that you have to clean it. see how to clean an ink cartridge.

Follow the next steps to do a quick cleaning check if the printer has a maintenance tool in its properties menu that can be used to do the cleaning.

  1. The quick cleaning consist of just using a fabric wet with water and clean the head of the cartridge located in bottom of the cartridge with it, right there where the ink comes out, it is possible that the head of the cartridge is dirty and so ink is not coming out completely.
  2. The maintenance tool to do the cleaning of the cartridge can be found in the printer if it is located in the control panel and when you get to the printer icon right click on it and go to properties, normally you will find this option in the right top maintenance and cartridges cleaning or cleaning the head of the cartridge select if you want to clean the color or the black ink cartridge.

In case the cartridge is having more ink that it needs:


After refilling the tricolor cartridge or any cartridge the black cartridge as well, if you have put more ink than the corresponding measure to this cartridge you will see yourself involve in the problem that colors are not coming out as they should, to solve this problem what you have to do is to take out of the cartridge a little of ink.

Normally that is something really easy to do in a shop since all they have to do is to place the cartridge in the extractor and extract the needed ink for the cartridge to keep on working and stop spilling ink.

At home a person refilling the cartridges can do it too even without having to much experience, to do so it is recommended to leave the ink cartridge on a napkin or toilet paper with its head facing the napkin or paper.

In little time the cartridge will let out a substantial amount of ink, you must be aware, if you leave the cartridge this way for a long time it can get empty.

You can also eliminate the surplus ink with the same syringe used to refill the cartridge, be aware that anyway you will have to clean the cartridge after taking out the ink with the syringe as explain in the first solution of this post.

If the ink cartridge is emptied

Logically if an ink cartridge is almost running out of ink colors won’t come out as they should, it is also possible that a cartridge has enough amount of one color ink but very little of another color, and if a cartridge is not used in a long time the ink could clogged the head of the cartridge, if this is your case you will have to open the cartridge and try again.

If the cartridge has run out of ink completely there is no other option than refilling it.

The need of changing the USB cable:

If you have realized that any of the before options solve the situation, next step to do is to change the USB cable, if you know that the cartridge has enough ink to print and you know you haven’t print so many pages to get your cartridge exhausted so you have to verify the USB cable.

Normally when you are having problem because of the USB cable the printing quality is not good and the color order is not as expected.

Possible problem with the net:

Net problems are similar to the ones explain  with USB cable problems, simply colors are not in the same place, as it’s been said before, for example one color can be in the place of other, it means well printed colors but not in the right place.

If everything comes in just one color:

When this happens that a specific color is coming out all along the printing, it is possible that that ink cartridges as more ink that it needs and what you have to do is to perform the same procedure we said before to take out the extra ink, however in this case at the end you must perform the ink cartridge cleaning.

There are other reasons why colors are not coming out as they should, if so and the reason is not in this post, please contact us by leaving a comment in this post, we will gladly publish a solution for your case.
