Printer can't print blue

  [DELETED] 16:47 27 Nov 2003

I have this printer for some time now and as we move the printer has started to not print blue and it comes out in red. I have tried a different printer and it does the same. Can anyone help?

To recap: You have changed nothing recently?......You have tried another printer on your computer and the result shows the same fault?........Have you tried printing the Windows test page?

If I have your problem correctly, what was the result from the Test Page?

It would help a lot if you can give more detail of which printer, with what computer and operating system.

Did you use the same cartridge in the other printer.

It's like try to find a needle in a haystack to solve this one...:-)

But if it's an HP genuine cartridge I'll lay odds it is most likely a faulty cartridge.

Every HP printer I've come across in the last six months that's been printing (or not) as the case may be has been down to the (HP) cartridge.

Once replaced the printer has been fine.

What printer are you talking about, What computer have you got What operating system are you using.

Sorry but no I didn't have the same cartridge in both printers. My printer is an epson 760 and the one I have tried it on was my epson 400 (which still works on my other computer).

Try a new parallel cable?
