The tip that works to fix a baldly clogged print head is to remove the print head, and spray and soak it in "Simple Green" for at least 3 hours. Then use compressed air to force the "Simple Green" through the heads from the screens in the ink wells, to the print head. Then use the air from the print heads, you will see foaming by each print screen. Be carefull not to lose the small rubber inserts around the print screen. Rince the print head with clear water and repeat the compressed air until dry. Replace, and put the ink cartriges back in, and bingo, your printer will work like new again!

Printer does not print in color but only prints in


Run a "print-head-cleaning-cycle" -- the ink inside the cartridges is not getting through the ink-jets, and is not reaching the paper.

Either that, or the electronics inside the ink-jets are malfunctioning, i.e., not telling the ink-jets to shoot the ink out.

Canon MP980 prints horizontal pink lines across


try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.

Printer is only printing pinks. Just changed ink


Try cleaning the print head. Do this under the tools for the 812c (do not physically clean). You may have to run the clean utility as much as 5 times.

Alarm flashes ink emptyhas ink! color was printing only yellow/green now prints only red/pink!


any chance it has dried out? run the test / head cleaning / did you reset the cartridge when you replaced it? generally if one or two colors work - the problem is the ink cartridge or the head for the colors not working. Did you remove the "tape" on the new cartridge?
