SOURCE: Canon MP500 Printing Problem

I had same problem today. Removed print head and bathed it in alcohol for half an hour. Then I removed the two screws underneath and used a syringe to squirt alcohol into the ports and clean. I noticed clumps of ink coming out (i guess some ports were blocked). I then dried the head and reinserted and reinstalled ink tanks. All looks good so far- black printing again and printed test patterns all look correct. Good luck.

SOURCE: The black ink won't print on my canon iP5200.

Try removing the cartridge and cleaning the cartridge contacts in the printer with a cotton swab dampened with isopropyl alcohol. When the contacts are dry, lightly scrub them with a white pencil eraser (the red ones are too coarse and may cause more problems), then wipe clean with a dry cotton swab.

If that doesn't help, open up the printer and find the other end of the ribbon cable connected to the print head carrier. There is often some sort of locking clamp on that connector. Unlock it, pull out the ribbon cable and clean the contacts on that end, then reassemble. (The lock may be a sliding sleeve around the cable (it only comes out about a millimeter) or a flip-up plate. If there is nothing like that, the cable is a friction fit and pulls out with a small amount of force. Some very cheap printers use a permanently attached connection).

Explanation: It is possible that there is a second drive voltage to the print heads that isn't connecting, but its failure doesn't prevent normal communications to the cartridge using the logic level voltage.

SOURCE: canon pixma mx 320 error 5800

there are two ways you can remove the error message from your printer..

the first is to reset the printer and the second is to replace the waste ink absorber. If the reset thing did not work for your then you'll be spending money to replace the absorber.

How to reset? follow these steps
1. Turn off your printer
2. Press and hold the STOP/RESET button
3. Press and hold Power ON button
4. While holding the Power ON button, release the STOP/RESET button
5. While holding still the Power ON button, press twice the STOP/RESET button
6. Release the Power ON button
7. Wait until it display an "idle" message. It will take about a minute.
8. When "idle" appear, open the top cover to expose the cartridges.
9. Lift up the cover for cartridge holder and take out both the black and color cartridges
10. Return the cover of cartridge holder and turn off the printer
11. Return the top cover and turn on the printer again
12. After the printer initialize, return the cartridges.

Hope that solve the waste ink absorber in your printer..

the waste ink absorber cannot be replaced mate. you have to buy new printer.the waste ink absorber is the sponge part where head cleans all its ink. its a common problem in cannon.

Testimonial: "Thanks Ronil. I had a feeling that this might be the case. Don't know if I'll buy another Canon though - this one has gone through 3 print heads."

Hello!
We all as a canon printer consumer is needed to use Pro dot ink to refill. Please remove your cartridge and clean up the cartridge head tightly by soft/toilet paper and replace again. If it doesn't work clean it again and again... thanks

240c series rinter words are faded when it prints


Try cleaning the print head using the front panel of the printer. If it doesn't work, remove the ink cartridge and clean it with lint free cloth or cotton swab using distilled water. Don't touch the gold part of the ink just press the cloth gently. Install the cartridge again and try to print.If still having faded pictures replace the printhead of the printer.

Printing won't work.


Good day sir/maam, hi, when you test print it usually prints letters and no lines are printed. try first if the printer is setup to economy/draft or pictures, if lines are faded, the ink cartridges maybe dirty. manual cleaning is needed, the ink path starts from the ink cartridge to the cradle or carrier then to paper. so any dried ink that blocks the path can affect the printout. you can use warm water to loosen dried ink. remove the cartridges and cradle from the printer as you clean them.

Printing pictures


If your normal print looks OK, make sure that you are printing your pictures on the correct side of the photo paper. Most photo paper will only print properly on one side. If you print on the other side, the image looks very grainy and faded, and the ink will still be quite wet when it comes out of the printer.
