  1. Basically ive just changed the colour cartrige cause it said it was low and was printing a bit sketchy anyway.
    so ive aligned the cartriges, printed test pages, cleaned the nozzles and re aligned you name it ive done it but the magenta and cian lines on the clean page arnt prinitng clean but with lines throught it,
    anyway any help would be apreciated as I'm really needing the printer to work!
    thankyou :)

    are you using genuine or aftermarket cartridges?

    I would normally suggest goign to tylermartin.com and seeing if you can buy some cleaning cartridges, but seeing as how you spelled color wrong, you probably live in some place they won't ship to :)

    Look around wherever you live and see if you can buy some cleaning cartridges for your printer.

    an old school trick is to get a little bit of rubbing alcohol and put it in an empty ink tank and let the computer try to print.

    it should clean the nozzles.
