SOURCE: Canon MP500 Printer head error

Hello,

Print heads for nearly all printers are rated at 2 years. You may also need to clean the tube from the resevoir at the ink supply to the cartridge and clean the working resevoir on the cartridge as well. If you are up to this challenge there is a how-to at your manufacturer's web site or you can have a tech do it. Most people, when they realize how inky you will be getting choose to have a tech do this.

It is best to use 100% denatured alcohol, from your hardware store, to clean these parts and tubing. But, you must take precautions.

DO NOT USE DENATURED ALCOHOL UNLESS YOU READ AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON THE BACK OF THE CAN.

I'm not kidding about the precautions. I do all this stuff outside when there is a breeze in the air and then I stay up wind of my work.

If you have any questions whatsoever just feel free to comment back to me.

Regards,
Worldvet

SOURCE: The 3eBK head stopped printing.

Try below some steps which might help you resolve the problem.

Print Head Cleaning / Head Refreshing If the printed Nozzle Check Pattern is broken, missing, or a specific color is not printed, clean the print head.

  1. Press the <Menu> button on the printers operation panel repeatedly until [MAINTENANCE] appears in the LCD.
  2. Press the left [<] or right [>] arrow buttons to select the cleaning setting you want. Select [HEAD CLEANING] or [HEAD REFRESHING] for deep print head cleaning.

    Note: [HEAD REFRESHING] uses more ink than [HEAD CLEANING], so perform [HEAD REFRESHING] only when necessary.
  3. Press the <OK> button.
  4. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern and perform at least two Head Refreshings if the pattern is not correct.
If this does not help, try removing the print head and then install it again. Once place, dont forget to aligh the head. Following are the steps:

Reseat Print Head Reseating the print head is seldomly needed to be done.
  1. Press the Open Button (1) to open the Paper Output Tray (2).

    (1): Bad example (Least solid box)

    (2): Good example (Most solid box)
  7. Press left or right arrow to select the pattern number that you checked in column A on the printout in step 6.

    (A): Column
    (0): Select pattern number with most solid image
  8. Press <OK>.
  9. Repeat steps 7 and 8 to adjust columns B to L. When all the horizontal patterns are adjusted, you will be prompted to print a vertical pattern [PRINT VERT. PATTERN].
  10. Press left arrow. A vertical pattern is printed.
  11. Beginning from column M on the printout, enter checkmarks in the patterns that have the most solid image.

    (2): Good example (Most solid box)
  12. Press left or right arrow to select the pattern number that you checked in column M on the printout in step 11.

SOURCE: Canon S300 printer. 7 orange blinks, 1 green. I

According to the manual found here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=330&modelid=6609

7 orange lights represents a bad print head, and the printer will need serviced or replacement. Since printers are so cheap lately, I would just go shopping. Hope this helps! Thanks!

Hi There

Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done 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.

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.

No ink on print out from canon mg6150, please help


how much ink is in the ink Cartridges?
have you changed the ink cartridge recently ?
You may need to clean the print head.
see http://www.cityinkexpress.co.uk/cheap-printer-cartridges/canon/pixma-mg6150/mg-series/cleaner/printhead-cleaning-cartridge/yellow

seems to look like it may be a manual procedure with the mg6150 rather than a computer setting in the printer properties. Look under properties to see if there is a computer generated head clean .

No ink on print


It can be so many things. You might have empty cartridges, they dont last forever and as long there is ink on any of the cartridges it will continue to print with the available ink.until all has gone.

Can i print onto Transparency film from my Canon MG 6150 as there is no setting for transparencies, what paper setting would i use


Try the setting for glossy photo media. You want a minimum of ink. Also use the transparency media intended for ink jet AND observe the correct side to be printed on.

When printing images from my Canon MG6150 it isn`t printing any magenta/red shades and the magenta cartridge is brand new. Every other color is printing fine. Anyone know what this problem could be? Is it...


Use the printer application to clean the cartridge and print all the test. If the test are wrong. You should change your cartridge. Maybe you have a bad store cartridge or expire one.
