Hi


Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this I put down here. But after you don this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok it got to be the heads blockage
There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

try to power off printer then power back on, this is usually a print job that is qued up but not printing, also if you have any print jobs in your windows printer que, delete them with the printer off. this will clear the printer. otherwise check for a paper jamb.

How do you go about cleaning printer head


there is a cleaning utility "printhead clean" and printhead deep clean" under "maintenance" in the "printer properties". Try that first. If that doesn't help and there is definitely ink in the cartridge(s), you can remove the cartridges and soak the printheads in 5mm of hot water for 1/2 hour or so. DRY WELL then install back in printer and run "printhead deep clean".
Another way is to isolate the colour that doesn't print properly and print few pages in that colour (eg if yellow is not printing right...set out a full page of yellow background and print on high quality setting until yellow starts to print ok). This wastes less ink than the cleaning utility.

good luck with it

Will not print in black. Colour okay. Have


There's a couple of things, the printheads wear out and need replacing now and then which is probably your problem, also there's an update to the printers firmware available to Canon service centers which helps the purge assembly clean the black even better. The printhead is QY6-0052-000 aprox. $50.00.

Canon i9100: colors printing incorrectly


I've had the Canon i9100 since 2003 and have excellent photo printing results. In 2009 it started playing up and I'd gt some banding. More recently, black didn't want to print. It was as though the black ink in the print head got dry some days.

April 2010 - The colours started printing strange and I bought a brand new print head and installed it. Only takes a minute. Still had an issue with photo printing. Black and white was excellent but colours weren't true.

Found advice online to try cleaning the print head to print head carrier electrical contacts by rubbing them with a rubber eraser.

I did that and now I'm getting perfect colour photo prints again.

I had been thinking about buying a new A3+ printer but this is old printer is now working as good as new.

My prints have white horizontal lines, i don't have a manual


You may end up replacing the printhead as well; this, as with most inkjets, don't tolerate longer stand times without printing, the ink solidifies in the tiny jets and 'cleaning' doesn't help.
If you are adventurous and have too little to do, you can try cleaning the printhead using the detailed instructions found here:
Canon Printhead Rescue
I tried it, without success, gaining only little improvement in print quality and after buying two heads purportedly for my 4000 and getting 'Wrong printhead' emssages with both, I did my own research and found that the printheads first bought were in fact NOT for the 4000. I even tried an ultrasonic bath of some power without success. Ordering the right printhead (QY6-0049-00) which I found new on eBay solved the problem.

Printing in colour


You need a NEW Print head, the cartridge may also cause this problem, however most likely the
problem is from the printhead(it's the thing the ink tanks fit into inside printer). I hope this helps, good luck. You could also run a deep cleaning and use real Canon inks and that would help as well.
