    Initially ink comes out but then fades even though cartridge is full

    Thanks. I did a new search for "starvation" only in the title and am studying up on the results. Complicated issue!

    Initially ink comes out but then fades even though cartridge is full

    So what do you mean exactly by "ink starvation" and how do you fix it?

    Well yeah I thought so too but it's full. It will either print blue properly or this faint pink. I wouldn't think it's physically jammed in there. I'd guess it's an electrical issue of a dying cartridge but idk how these things work

    This is a HP 65 cartridge. Only the blue fades. I've soaked the bottom of the cartridge in alcohol and hit water. Is this a physical or electrical issue?

    HP Deskjet 2652 isn't dropping paper fully onto rollers

    I've ruled out the rubber rollers so it's gotta be some wear or defect with one of the parts in there. Just seeing if anyone might have a suggestion

    Thanks! So... Don't know how I'm suddenly so bold... So this is normal then. I think I've had them in the past do this too, can't say for sure. I already did clean them and the contacts in the printers too. Okay, just checking to see if there were other tricks I could try as these cartridges...

    Well my question didn't seem like a simple and popular one suitable for search engines. "what part of I don't get it.."? Huh? Don't be offended. C'mon. So you look like you got experience with these cartridges. Since I've got two printers responding the same it's probably the cartridges. Do...

    These cartridges worked some months ago. Since then I've just kept them taped at the bottom with scotch tape. Both printers tested fine with these back then. What happened after all this time? Do they just die like that or could there be an issue with my printers? Is there any way to revive...

    How do you preserve your ink cartridges?

    I'm about to open a couple new ones but only to use for testing so I don't want them to dry up and die prematurely. Normally I just put scotch tape on the underside on I guess the "printhead" part. Should this method suffice or do you have a better suggestion?

    Refilled and cleaned and leak ink but don't discharge properly

    Hmm.. I've got a couple of those. Don't always work. The ink is already coming through though and like I said initially did but then fade shortly after. I'll try the tool then report back...

    Refilled and cleaned and leak ink but don't discharge properly

    I can fill them to the top and soak the bottoms in hot water and alcohol til the cows come home but they'll still struggle to put out ink properly. Sometimes they'll start to properly then quickly fade and sometimes leave little puddles sporadically. Mind you I DO cover the holes I punctured...

    Refilled this cartridge and can't get ink to come out

    thanks so much guys! It wasn't easy lol. I tried doing it without taking it apart putting paper towel under printhead flushing it, and after taking it apart and cleaning it printer had several brain farts gave error messages making me go back in and mess around some more... but last time I made...

    Thanks! Is there a pic of the transparent ones around somewhere you know of? It'd help me see how these work. But this was very helpful.

    Refilled this cartridge and can't get ink to come out

    "pigment" and "dye-based"... I'm not sure if that means something important but I didn't want to slow you down to ask so I just keep moving the best I can and I appreciate the mistakes I make in life as I learn, it makes the lessons stick, and I just don't absorb new info that that well with...
