Unable to Print

I was able to print one page before the "Unable to Print" message came up. I have all full ink. Tried a couple of online solutions from fixya. I tried the press menu, black start, then arrow up three times. This led to Machine Error 36. When unplugging printer and plugging in again, there is the cleaning process and then the Machine Error 36 message again.

WON'T PRINT BLACK; I'VE REPLACED BOTH CARTRIDGES, CLEANED PRINT HEAD, TRIED CODES. ANYTHING ELSE? i'VE HAD IT A COUPLE YEARS.


Remove the cartridge and rub the ink head to a plain paper with alcohol until ink flows. And then run the print cleaning maintenance like print nozzle and print alignment page.

Please let me know if you need more help and please rate this solution.

I am unable to copy, i keep getting the message "Unable to print 36"


The error message is an indication that the machines ink absorbers are almost full. The ink absorbers hold liquid and dried ink after it has been purged from the print head. These absorbers can control enough ink for the expected life of the machine.

Hp printer error massage no black ink supply NEW CARTIDGE IN have tried reinstalling several time


Hi Jack,

What I understand from your message is that, when you try to print from the computer, you are receiving a message "No black ink supply"...


Solution: If you have installed the full featured AIO software on your computer, then open the HP solution Center on your computer, then click on the settings>> print settings>> Printer toolbox.

Then click on the Configuration Tab and uncheck the option "Display the ink level message". Then click on the Device tab and try to print a Diagnostic page and then click Ok to close the solution center. Then resart the computer and try printing..


I am pretty sure this will resolve the issue..

With Regards

Mike.....

Printer message is: used ink tank is full. Q. where is it...and how do I empty it?


The waste ink tank on Canon printers is the ink absorber which holds the ink used during Print Head Cleaning process. When the error message indicates that it is nearly full, Canon indicates that the printer should be taken to the nearest Canon service center to replace the absorber. There is no supported "do it yourself" replacement for this piece of the printer. As per Canon:

This printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full. At this point, printing is still possible. Press the <OK> button to cancel the error. You will still be able to print for a short period. To protect the printer from damage, you will not be able to print at all once the ink absorber is full.

Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. We are aware that there are many "do-it-yourself" Web sites that offer instructions for making this repair. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset. Be aware that if you attempt this procedure, it is at your own risk.

If you feel your product might require service, Canon has excellent service options, and we are eager to provide any assistance you may need. Click the link below to locate an authorized service facility and obtain further instructions.

So, to answer your direct question directly, if the message said "nearly full", you can press OK and continue to print for a short time. If it indicated it is full the printer will not function until Canon services the machine and resets the printer.

If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently and/or more details regarding the situation, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution. Thank you for using and rating FixYa!

Black ink not printing


Fix ink cartridge
I had same problem. I must have ran the clean cycle more than 30-50 times over a period of days. That never made any difference. I was about to toss the whole thing but figured I would try one more thing. If it didn't work I would be in no worse shape. Here is what I did.
Took an almost empty black cartridge and inject a lot of 100% Acetone to dilute ink. Left some black in it since I didn't want to think it was empty. Inserted this cartridge and ran the cleaning a few time. IT WORKED. I used my word processor program and filled a page with large bold font characters and printed a page or two. Each page cleared more nozzles. After doing this cleaning/printing a number of time, I put in the full good cartridge. Ran the cleaning a few time to eject any of the Acetone diluted ink. Ran the printed page a few time to remove more of the diluted ink.
Everything seems to work now.

Print Unable 34


There might be some paper left in the machine. Check the very edges espacially the left side (seeing from the front).

Another reason could be that the encoder strip isn t in right position or is stained from ink.

Anyway try the first solution first.

If you stll have trouble try to open the printer:

and have a close look to the encoder strip + disc (and look out for some paper in the edges... ;-))
