SOLVED: Mystery Printer That Wouldn’t Print Orange
Recently, I was printing out the pin-backed buttons for social distancing and the purple was showing as gray and the orange wasn’t printing at all. WTF?!?
Like many folks, I replaced my cartridge printer with one that had tanks of ink. (promotional link)
Costco had a good deal on this printer about a year ago. And I was looking to replace my old one. I have loved this purchase ever since.
Until this past week.
Was it my graphic software that was somehow obscuring the colors? I tried changing the order of the layers and making changes to the colors. But no matter what I tried, this:
printed like this:
Gray instead of purple, different blue and no orange at all. It should have occurred to me that magenta and yellow weren’t printing. But all of the tanks were full.
So I found this google search. I was dubious when it said to try doing a nozzle cleaning three times. But I did. And voilà! It fixed it.
I am so thrilled with both my progress and the way my test-knit is going.
I’ve just reached over 400 stitches and there’s still quite a bit to knit. So I’ll be power-knitting this garment to finish it as fast as I can.
