The Ink is not the color or format I wanted ¶
Ink cartridges are not held properly by the ink head, ink is being spilled from the ink head or ink is not coming out of the ink head properly.
Low Ink ¶
If your printer is not printing the ink correctly this may be caused by a deficiency in the ink cartridge. Check the printer's ink levels by locating the printer icon on your desktop or in the application folder on your computer. Right-Click on "Printer Preferences" and find the section labeled ink levels. If the bars look low, it's probably time to replace the ink cartridge.
