No, usually you will need to replace the printheads.

What cause lose of new ink on aligning cartridges.


Unfortunately, the printer does not actually measure the ink in the carts, but measures how many droplets called for. The carts may actually be full, but the printer now thinks they're empty. Most likely the black ink needs to be "charged" because you've cleaned out the pipe. I don't know what to do to charge it, and you'll likely need new carts.

Your print heads most likely need to be cleaned.

When you don't use your ink carts for a while, when you get new ink carts that have been stored in warehouses for a number of months, or when you have refilled a slightly too dry ink cart, the print head nozzles on the bottom of the ink carts get clogged with dried ink. The printer head cleaner menu will not disolve the dried ink. Water will. Try this. Soak the bottom of the clogged ink cart in 1/2 inch of hot water for 15-30 minutes. Blot dry with clean paper towel(you should see the ink color on the towel). Retry.

Anything printed from our canon printer is showing a "striped" background. Have changed ink cartridges and have cleaned the printer head but still have the same problem


The stripes are generally caused by a blocked nozzle (or 2).
Remove the cartridges and then remove the print head from the printer.
Run the print head under some warm water for a few minutes - concentrating on the pit at the bottom where the ink comes out - all those coloured slots!. When the water runs clear. take some kitchen roll and dab the thing dry - don't rub. Make sure there is no water on the electrical contacts on the back and refit the print head into the printer and then the ink carts.
Try a couple of prints now. What happens?

Ink is not visible on paper


First NEVER raise the tanks of a CISS above the height of the printer otherwise all that is going to happen is that the ink will syphon out and end up getting everywhere.

As you have not used the printer in a long time there wil be dried ink in the print heads 3x head cleaning is nowhere near good enough to clear the blockages.

One thing I would do as you have a set of OEM carts is the following presuming you have the equipment.

Drill a small hole in the top of each cart and extract as much ink as ps=ossible with a syringe (you can put it in the ciss ink tanks) and replace with head cleaning solution. Reseal the ink carts (if clean selotape will do) insert carts and do 5x head clean, leave 24hrs and do 5x head clean again. This will allow the head cleaning solution to get right insine of the print head, soften the dried ink and then flush it through..

A lot of messing about I know but you've just shelled out a few bob for a CISS so it's worth it.

NB

Make sure you keep the CISS carts above the tanks whilst outside of the printer.

3eBk will not print. Canon MP780


Replacing the printhead may work, but it could be a problem with the cleaning assembly. Take out the 3ebk and run a cleaning, if the ink goes away on the pad where the ink cart. goes, then clean assy. is OK, and you need a new printhead.

I would remove the ink carts, reseat the print head then reinstall the ink carts. Try printing again to see if things improve. If it does good. If not try the Kodak online team. 800 421 6699 They will help you get things working correctly.

Black ink is full but does not print.


Did you make sure that the cart was placed well and the plastic hook secures the cart on top?

If you have used Easy Jet carts, you can stop here and give the whole machine a push to the bin!
Easy Jet carts and some other generic ink carts clogg the fine filter in front of the nozzles which cant be cleaned anymore.

The ph as a spare part is more costly than a new mfc 240c at a price discount!

But you can try this at least:
Use a new original brother carts (BK/C/Y/M). place carts and secure them! (this procedure will consume some ink!)
press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow-up button. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink in tubes and ph
and will do some cleaning cycles. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy to run a special power purge.
When finished press 9 then 9. After machine is back in normal state run a test print.
If you still cant see any bk the ph cant be fixed anymore.

1. Took out the ink carts and cleaned the copper contacts of both the ink carts.
2. Clean the copper contacts on the ink carts slot in the printer and then insert the ink carts in the printer and then print out the page.

First, wouldn't print black, now won't print magenta- all new cartridges!


Unplug machinepowercord. Open printer and take all carts out. Plug in power. Machine demands carts. Put new one in: Replace with original ink carts!. When asked push 1 (yes New cart). If you have used thirdparty carts, there could be a prob due to construticon or ink quality. In case there is no bk after 3x cleaning cycles anymore, the head is clogged: This happens because the filter in front of the nozzels is clogged by pigmented ink. DO USE ONLY DYE INK for all types of brother inkjet machines!!!
