Information

General Printing Information
Should you experience any printing problems or poor quality, first use the printing software for its intended purposes and carry out whatever cleaning, priming or nozzle testing may be required to correct the problem. Unfortunately, we do not yet sell cleaning cartridges for unclogging permanent print heads on Xerox printers. Should you experience excessive clogging on your printer, there are ways of recovering the print quality and prolonging the serviceability of the printer, see Severe Clogging below.
On printers that use separate colour cartridges, these must be fitted when the software tells you and the correct cartridge has to be fitted into the correct cartridge port.
Providing the colour cartridges are fitted correctly as above, the printed colours will be mixed correctly to form the required colours of the printed text or picture.
Text and Graphic programs can be altered to adjust various degrees of contrast, brightness, colour saturation, colour hue, colour enhancement and many other properties for the users required print settings / results and for various paper qualities and types.
When using a text package, make sure that the selected text for print is the required colour. If 'automatic' is selected for text, your printer will only use the black cartridge and print pure black text. This has to be selected when the required text has been highlighted. Should your printer not print in black text, either the program or printer settings have been altered in some way and require resetting to the desired settings / reinstalling or the black cartridge is empty and the printer is using the colour cartridges to print a generic black colour. If the black cartridge is empty and was installed using the correct procedure, there should be a message on your screen to inform you of this or the printer will illuminate a flashing light next to the ink icon to inform you that the cartridge should be changed.

Head Cleaning
Should you suffer print head clogging / air locking, your printer software allows you to carry out head cleaning, which operates once automatically when selected. This will normally ask you to carry out a nozzle check on completion. Should your clogging be severe, carrying out a nozzle check after one head cleaning process, will normally cause further clogging due to extreme heat temperature being applied to the print head to form the ink bubbles required for printing.
Therefore, to properly clear any head clogging, cancel the nozzle check after the head clean and carry out a second head clean and even a third head clean before selecting the nozzle check. Your print quality should now show some improvement. If the nozzle check pattern is not perfect for each colour, carry out the above procedure again remembering to only select the nozzle check after completing at least 3 head cleans.
If no improvement is seen when carrying out the above procedure, you will need to purchase a cleaning cartridge, unfortunately none are available from The INK Store for these printers at this time.

As most Xerox inkjet printers have removable print heads, if your heads are clogged, you can remove the head and use hot water or a very mild solvent to physically clean the head nozzles. The nozzles are tiny and very hard to see, but very easy to clog with dry ink due to the size of the holes.

To clean using hot water, pour boiling water from the kettle into a china saucer to a shallow depth, place the print head in the water with the print nozzles at the bottom (the same way it sits in the printer), wait a few seconds until ink starts to appear in the water, lift out and wipe dry with kitchen roll, dab a dry piece of kitchen roll on the print nozzles firmly and check to see if you have perfect even lines of the appropriate colours. If lines are broken or uneven, place the head back in the hot water for about 2 minutes, remove and dry, then recheck the colours with kitchen roll as above, except this time there may be lines of moisture appearing where water has tracked into the nozzles, a few dabs will absorb this water out of the nozzles and the ink will then flow again.

To clean using a mild solvent, remove the print head from the printer, dab a piece of kitchen roll in the solvent with your finger and wipe across the nozzles at the bottom of the print head where the ink comes out. Use a dry piece of kitchen roll and wipe away excess solvent and all dry ink then hold the tissue against the nozzles to start a flow and absorb any solvent from the nozzles before it tracks into the cartridge so as to avoid contaminating the ink. After about 20 or 30 seconds remove the kitchen roll used to absorb the ink, use a fresh dry piece of kitchen roll and dab against the nozzles firmly and check to see if you have perfect even lines of the appropriate colours.
If not, repeat the process above and if necessary, use the hot water method above as well, as this sometimes dissolves and releases the remaining dry ink.

If your print head is clogged beyond repair and or the circuit has failed, we sell replacement Xerox print heads for most models above.

Xerox Compatible Cartridge Information

The Xerox compatible cartridges on this site are manufactured by companies other than Xerox and are brand new cartridges sealed & ready for use. They have been compared to Xerox ink performance & durability with excellent results. Customers that use our compatible cartridges also constantly remark on the excellence of the quality and results when printing.
The compatible ink cartridges are ink tanks and as such, do not have a print head attached. The print head is an integral / fixed part of your printer, which will be prone to clogging, air locks, ink hardening / drying due to lack of use and other various printing interruptions. Therefore, regular maintenance should be carried out using the software provided with your printer.
Your new cartridge will be filled to its fullest possible capacity, but the cartridge has no part in the displayed ink level on your computer. The ink level is governed by the printer software, which will estimate the amount of ink used for each print job, head clean or prime and display the estimated remaining level of ink within the tanks.


Ink Management
Always have a spare ink cartridge for each colour required by your printer. Should you run out of ink on printers with permanent print heads, the ink on the head will dry and harden very quickly once the flow of wet ink has ceased. This will cause clogging and poor print performance, the severity of which will depend on how long you leave your printer without fresh ink.
Printers left without wet ink will be prone to dry ink clogging and will require numerous head cleaning when a replacement cartridge is installed. This will normally recover the print quality of the printer and clear the print head, however should the printer be left without ink for more than 14 days, the recovery of the print quality will need more substantial cleaning with the aid of a cleaning solution and may not be recoverable without physical maintenance to the fixed print head.
To avoid printing disruption;
Always have spare replacement cartridges at hand and reorder further replacements when you install them.
Never leave your printer without ink.
Use your printer regularly.
