    The ink still does not dry even after several hours. I have run the cleaning and deep cleaning applications and still does not fix the problem. I have noticed that there is ink smeared on the outside of the print head

There r various modes in the printer in which u have to print .and that u have to select.as you said it is printing properly on ordinary paper.the printer is perfect.the photo paper have less soaking power that ordinary paper.as the photo paper can consume ink but not so quickly as ordinary paper.
u just change that printmode and then check out how it prints.
for example the modes r ----------best mode printing.
better mode printing.
fine mode printing
normal mode printing.
draft mode printing
economy mode printing.
now i f u print in best mode it will consume lots of ink but will take lots of time to print.
if u select normal mode it will consume less ink and print quickly.

u can change the settings in printer properties.
thanks

Sounds like the ink isn't having time to dry and is rubbing along paper.

Paper may be too thick. If it prints OK on normal paper (test first) but not on thick card, then it doesn't support thick paper settings.

ok, What cartridges are you using, Are the Canon cartridges?
What paper are you using, is it Canon paper?

If you are to both of these it could be wise ordering a printhead, but this is mostly caused in the uk by None Canon Paper.

Try opening the printer properties and cleaning the print heads (should probably be done each time a cartridge is changed), it uses some ink up but should clean the build up from running the previous cartridge dry and hopefully solve your printing problem.

Good luck.

The print heads are clogged with dry ink.


Yup, thats the problem....

To keep them clean you need to almost use the printer weekly....or at least once per month min....

Try running the head cleaning utility....
You can run it as long as you have ink in your cartridges, maybe 5 times in a row....Wait about 10 minutes and try again....

With luck it will unclog itself....

Note: Your cartridge can also dry out (Yes the liquid evaporates), and leaves the pigment in the cartridge, which can further clog your machine....

As a last resort there are a few vendors on the internet where you can purchase head cleaning solution for epson cartridges....

Note; This problem is more common with printers that use pigment based ink as it tends to settle in the cartridge. Dye based ink has a shorter "Brilliance lifespan" but tends not to clog...

Lexmark Z517 wont print black ink


I have a z600 that i use. If not used for about a month the ink does clog the print nozzles and eventually ink cartridge does dry out. To avoid this even if i dont have to print anything I run a diagnostics test that prints out a nozzle aligment test every two weeks.The great thing about this is that it uses very little ink.You can find this test in your software that was provided by Lexmark. This will keep your nozzles cleaned and you will notice this helps extend the life of your cartridge.

"Banding" on Prints


Do a thorough manual cleaning of printerheads (where the cartridges sit). Many printers are notorious for clogged nozzles and the ink dries on he prinheads until it becomes a bandind issue or ladders appear, smudges too. Use a proper cleaning solution and cotton buds, until most colour is gone off cotton buds. Reinsert cartridges and try again.
