    I changed the black ink cartridge, the ink jet seems to be skipping. Some times it will print a good first page then skip on subsequent pages.

Hello
you didnt give us very much info.

the only thing that gets pretty much clogged on an ink jet printer is the print head.

on some printers the print head is a part of the ink cart, on some it a separate part.
if its part of the ink cart try running some cleaning cycles on it, try and take it to a place like walgreens that re-fill them, their machine flushes a solvent thru them under pressure during the cleaning cycle, if it doesnt clean up its had it and needs to be replaced.

if the print head is a separate part it needs to be removed from the printer and cleaned as per the machines manual or if thats not an option or the cleaning doesnt work the print head needs replacement.

My canon pixma ip4000 has stopped printing. It is going through the motions but the paper is coming out blank with nothing on it.


Hi
If you have lots of flashing error lights or electrical problems then it is likely to be electrical.

However, if like most... and your Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer has just been left unused for some time? You probably have an ink clog on the cyan and magenta.
Or possibly a faulty cartridge.

Provided it worked OK before a period of non-use? Then you just need to use a PRINT HEAD CLEANING KIT to unclog the tiny jets.
Magic Inkjet Flush usually works a treat on those!

Magic is ideal for unclogging the tiny jets on any Canon, Epson HP andremoving those horrible white lines which usually appear in prints whendried ink clogs several jets...

So if yours appears to be a clog? all you should need to do is to use the Magic Inkjet Flush kit to soak the print head and you should be printing again like new.

How can you clean the printer but clicking on


Hi
If yourPSC 1210v printer has been left unused for some time? You probably have an ink clog and the standard cleaning is not enough to clear the clogged ink.

Assuming your HP 56 57 still has ink? Empty they are about 30g Each 1g over that is 1ml of unused ink.

Provided it worked OK before a period of non-use? Then you just need to use a PRINT HEAD CLEANING KIT to unclog the tiny jets.

After replacing cartridge in dell 810 the colours printing wrong


Hi

If you haven´t used your inkjet printer for a while it may just be dry ink clogging some of the nozzles in the print head.


To check if yours is clogged...


Remove the ink cartridges
Holding the cartridge upright and press down gently onto a paper towel.

The colour cartridge
you should see YELLOW, MAGENTA (red) and CYAN (blue)

But if any colours are missing? The inks have probably just clogged up? and you will need to buy a new one or if you know you still have ink then you can easily unclog it with a
Magic Inkjet Flush Kit (Which you can find on Ebay)

MIXED COLOURS
If you have others colours coming out then the colours have mixed...
Sometimes caused when people put tape onto the inks to keep them moist but instead the colours mix through capilary action.


If so... leave print head sitting on a paper towel for a few mins until the correct colours appear.



Read more about ink clogs here:
How to Clean, Fix, Repair, Unclog, Dry, Clogged Print Heads on CANON, EPSON, HP, Lexmark, Dell, Olivetti etc…

To prevent an ink clog it is best if you print something regularly about every 10 days to keep the tiny print head nozzles / jets open. Otherwise the ink in the print head will thicken. Then it´s like trying to pass a camel through the eye of a needle.

So to preven inkjet ink from clogging print something every 10 days if you dont have anything to print, use something like these test prints

Never used for one year more,what will happen it?


Well,inkjet printer;no matter what brand is will suffer ink clogging if you never use it for long time. Ink clogging may occur in print head (cartridge nozzle) or pump nozzle. So,ink cannot flows properly. You can try perform printhead cleaning when you use it again but if it doesn't help you should replace those parts. For inkjet printer it's strongly recommended that you turn on your printer at least once a week to clear all ink nozzle.

Clogged inkjets


Install original brother ink carts. Do the cleaning 3 times. If you dont have any success afterwards the printhead has to be replaced (It could be cheaper to buy a new mfc then!)
