    All printers will print a test pattern. From that you can determine which colors aren’t printing properly. If there is ink in the cartridge for that color run a cleaning and deep cleaning if necessary. If possible just clean the affected colors.

    If the cleaning doesn’t work:
    HP and Lexmark give you new heads with a new cartridge.
    You can remove the heads from most Canons. Soak them head down in ammonia or hot water.
    If you can’t get an Epson running with cleaning cycles and you are sure there is ink in all the tanks the cheapest option is probably a new printer.
