Solution 1: Use genuine cartridges
Use genuine ink or toner supplies. Local cartridges do not guarantee the quality of their products. Know the authenticity of the product before buying.
Solution 2: Check estimated ink levels and then replace any low or empty cartridge
Ink level indicators provide estimates for planning purpose. When the ink level is shown less, you can replace the cartridge to avoid any printing delays.

Solution 4: Replace the problem cartridge once the issue is identified
If cleaning does not resolve the issue, then identify the cartridge which is causing an issue and replace that cartridge.
Solution 5: Service the printer
In case your printer does not work well, schedule a repair or replacement. Keep a print sample that shows the problem. If the ink cartridge is replaced under warranty the agent might ask for the print sample.
Solution 6: Print in backup mode
If you need an immediate print and quality of the print is not a concern, then print in backup mode. You can always print in ink backup mode. You can simply remove the problem cartridge and print with the remaining cartridge. If you have tri-color cartridge, printouts will be in grey-scale but if you remove the black cartridge, the product prints slowly and colours might differ.
