The postie was good to me today.
He delivered not only the Joanna Sheen CD that I had ordered (her stuff is not usually my style but I saw this CD mentioned in a craft mag and I just love the fantasy artwork on it!):
but also a vital component for printing images from the above CD - new printer ink cartridges:
And therein lies my frustration.
My printer has been printing colours wonky for a while now - all my photos etc are coming out with a bluish-pinkish tinge. DH suggested that it may be down to a dodgy ink cartridge (I get my cartridges refilled and DH said maybe I'd gotten a bad colour batch of refill ink) and that putting new original cartridges in might help. So I ordered some.
However, before trying out the new cartridges, I decided to run a test print... and the results were not good! It seems the yellow print head is badly blocked as there's hardly any yellow coming through on the test print - which explains the bluish-pinkish tinge.
The problem now is... I can't seem to get the darn print head unblocked!! I've run the head cleaning cycle about 8 times now (which of course is using up ink!) and it's made absolutely no difference whatsoever! I've even tried putting in the new ink cartridges and running the cleaning cycle again but still no joy.
So how do you clean/unblock a print head when the cleaning cycle won't do it? I guess I'm going to have to contact Brother's customer services and ask them how to resolve this... hope it won't mean sending my printer off for repair. :/
