I am currently troubleshooting my 1430 for a blocked yellow channel and mostly blocked lite magenta. Y is completely blank.
After doing several nozzle checks and cleanings I could see signs of problems, but went on to make two printouts:
- Text only (Great! Clean and clear)
- Image only. The image showed 0 yellow despite the large area containing yellow. Cyan, lite cyan, black and magenta are fine.
I just refilled all the carts (again) and reset them all. Lightly cleaned the portals with iso alcohol and cotton buds.
The printer is recognizing and able to print without error messages.
But the blank yellow and lite magenta channels remain.
My 1st guess is possibly to replace yellow and light magenta carts.
Second guess is…that you may have some suggestions for me.
Thanks for your attention and time.
