Hello,

It sounds like you have new cartridges and it could be that the protective plastic strips is still on the cartridges. If this is the case, you can simply pull the strip from the cartridge and you should be fine.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

I need information why MFC J265W wont print or copy.


During a print head cleaning, the printer moves ink through the print heads. This ink has to go someplace, and that's to the "ink absorber". Now, this absorber is full and needs to be replaced or the printer could overflow onto your table and make a mess.

The part may be user-replacable, or require a service visit, I don't know.

Canon IP90 ink pad is full


This may clear the ink absorber problem. There is ink absorbers located at both ends of the printer where the ink head move.
To dry the ink absorber, power up the printer and open the cover so the ink cartridges and print head will move to the middle of the printer.
Then take several sheets of absorbent tissue, fold it into a pad and place it inside the printer over the ink absorber on the far left hand side of the printer to soak up the excess ink. You may need to change the absorbent tissue a few times. Then repeat the same procedure on the right hand ink absorber.
Close the lid and the printer should now function normally.

Epson stylus photo r300 removed print head, flushed out all nozzels with water, dried everything, reasembled everything, including the flat ribbons, two different times. After dozens of times trying to...


If an inkjet printer has not been used for some time and several print head cleaning has been done and it still does not print properly then the nozzles in the print head are blocked.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent nozzles blocking with dried ink.
You need to replace the print head to get the printer functioning again.
But these print heads are expensive to replace, it may be better to buy a better and a later model printer for not much more costs.

The ink well is full and leaking. How do I clean it out.


There is an ink well below the home run position of the print head and cartridge assembly. If you open the lid of the printer, the print head moves to the center of the rail. You then unplug the printer and gently move the print head to the left and out of the way. If you shine a flashlight in the right hand corner or home run position, you will see the ink well. You can clean it out with a paper towel or a syringe. Obviously, the well is no longer overflowing and the drip should stop.

There is no ink on the paper


Hi Kontiki28. It seems you either have seriously blocked black ink nozzles, or you have faulty black ink nozzles. You can try the nozzle cleaning method described below, but remember it can take quite a while.

Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves out of its parking position, pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head by hand fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Do not turn the printer on at any stage in this process. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then turn the printer on and try a head clean/nozzle check again. If you get any black ink on the nozzle check, then there is hope! Repeat the process until you get a full black nozzle check.

If nothing, repeat the process once more. If still nothing, post a new comment detailing what you have done and the results.

Black ink not working


Have you carried out any head cleaning cycles. If not, do it, then a nozzle check. Any sign of ink? If so do a couple more nozzle checks. If still not perfect, let it rest for 24 hours to disperse air bubbles. Then repeat. If you already have done lots of head cleans with no result, and you're sure you have a good ink cartridge in, then you can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows.

Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight
flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL

the waste ink tank becomes completely full, printing will be no longer
possible.
