I have just replaced all the printheads in my  printer, however, the Y-MK printhead is only printing the Yellow. The printhead printout has lots of blank spaces where the MK should be. Anyone shed some light on my problem?

Thanks

mk/y is the most frequent trouble printhead. I even don't remember how many I had replaced.

You have to use a syringe/injector to draw out ink & make sure draw out no bubble.  if air inside

inktube , then printhead will be empty.

 

Few weeks back, I replaced one brand new, then printed not too many prints, again no yellow inks.

 

I ordered the tool to      refill inks to the printheads.   hope it works & save some money.

Thanks for the reply Jason but I am not sure I understand what you are doing with the syringe? Are you drawing ink from the printhead, or air? And from where?

 

Thanks
