Christine, most printers, whether they just print or if the also have other functions, come with maintainance software that is installed along with the software needed for printing. I would first go to the start button, then to programs. Locate the printer program that you have, if there is an arrow to the right of your printer model, that means that there are other functions that you can perform from that program other than just printing. Point the mouse to the arrow, a small menu should come up , look for either "toolbox" or maybe "printer maintainance" , something to that effect. All printers and their software are similar but determining the exact operation of yours is impossible without knowing the make and model that you have. If you can find this maintainance option, I would try that first. If you can first try the cleaning option,and if that runs, you should also have an option to print a test page .If you are still having difficulty, either check the printer manual, or if you do not have the manual, you could look up the manufacturer online and go to their support section. They normally have a section to type in a question.

Canon mx860 printer not using ink from PGBK 220


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Brand new printer with brand new ink prints BLANK pages


Hi Mike This is an odd one. If it prints the bars then ir should print everything else - cleaning is just wasting ink in this case.
I'm guessing that this is still under warranty, so I would take it back and get it replaced.

Canon printer


It shouldn't dry up in such short a time, not unless you've done a lot of printing and the cartridge has run out. The seller is taking the mickey.

If you've replaced with canon cartridges and it still fails, insist on replacement or repair under warranty.

If repaired, check that it works properly before accepting it.

Hi Alan I think it is the cartridge that is causing your issue but I cant promise that it is.I can tell you from many years experience it very rarely is an issue with the printer breaking it is 99% of the time inferior consumables causing printers to fail, and sometimes wrecking printers so even when the customer does use good consumables it is too late and the damage is done, but we can't be sure of anything unless we start with basics and get 100% brand new Original Equipment Manufacturers carts (OEM) and stick them in. (no I don't work for Lexmark;)

I have the same problem. Everything on the printer is working just fine. It'll do a test page just fine, so everything's working right. The %$^ thing just won't print. It makes noise like it's printing when you give it a print job, but it spits out blank pages.

The ink solidifies right behind the micro printing nozzles. The only way to attempt to rectify this is to dip the print face into some warm (not hot) water for a minute or two, and dry after wards. If the cartridge recovers, Yippee, if it doesn't, replace.
Common problem. Be thankful it isn't a Canon or Epson, which entails replacing a seriously expensive 'print head'.

The magenta isn't printing correctly, and the printer keeps telling me to remove tape from the magenta cartridge. There isn't any tape on it. I've tried resetting it several times.


Its sounds as though the printer isnt picking up the cartridges properly, try removing it and cleaning the contacts on both the cartridge and the printer

First, the cartridges. This printer uses a 21 for Black and a 22 Tri-Color. The 58 is a Photo cartridge that replaces the 22, not the 21. Make sure that the cartridges are properly placed in the printer. The next step is the easier one. Might sound like some work, but it is the best way to correct conflicts with HP branded printers. First, uninstall the printer from the PC completely. Use the uninstall function. When that is done, re-install the printer onto the PC and test it. This should solve your problems, as long as there is not physical issues with the printer itself.
