Won't read level of ink, and won't print anything on the paper

I've tried reloading the printer driver and tried the cleaning, deep cleaning. I'm curious if it's something internal that i'd have to bring it to geek squad, or send in, it's out of warranty, i know that. any ideas?

Since golfer1723 and barrrun seem to have lost interest in this one, I think we can say it has been "solved by Posters".

Not printing in black and white from my mp 560

If the black ink injector is blocked by after market ink clogging or drying out of ink in the nozzles, get an eye dropper and put a few drops of ammonia on the ink pad below the ink cartridge. Do the deep clean from the printer control section in the software. If you do not have that feature delete and reload the printer driver from Canon.
You might have to do this on several days in succession. If the blockage is severe. It might not be repairable. If memory serves the ink holder, where the cartridges sit, is replaceable for worst case blockages or burned out injectors. You might get one cheap on Ebay. (Don't buy after market ink cartridges. They do not have the chip that sends information about the ink level to the printer. Without that feedback the printer can refuse to operate at all. )

I have one with stripped gears so all those parts work. The paper carriage will not advance to print in my old printer. But every thing else works.

New Lexmark S815 won't print

Check for the manufacturing menu in the setup menu on the device. Make sure that the USB SN is enabled.
You may also try to do a deep clean function on your printer. Tap on Ink Levels on your printer touchscreen panel > More Options > Deep Clean Printhead. This will force ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean possible clogs and dirt.

Print very dull cannot read

Possible that the ink is low or gone dry or that the head needs a cleaning.
Attempt to do a maintenance self head cleaning , try and check ink level and also reload the printer driver as a last attempt before an estimation can be taken.

The problem is not with the ink-cartridges. You've proved that, by swapping BLACK cartridges.

The problem is that the ink-jets that spray the BLACK ink onto the paper are clogged.
Thus, no BLACK ink reaches the paper.

Open the HP Printing Assistant, and open Utilities, and run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to try to unclog the print-head.

Yellow won't print

First try to replace the yellow toner cartridge. After that, try re-seating the cartridge (take out the cartridge and place it back in carefully making sure it is seated correctly). If this does not resolve the issue, clean the print heads and connections on the cartridge. This can be done by removing the cartridge and swabbing the connections with a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. Also, while the cartridge is removed, swab the connections to the cartridge that are inside the printer where the cartridge is seated.

You are doing well, keep trying the ink as it is a new cartridge has to still come through.

Do a few more deep cleans and then print some test pages. You may need to do this a few times.

Take care!

Printer has suddenly decided not to print. Have solid red light.

Check whether there's paper in the rack or anything (paper or dust)might have been jammed inside the printer. If that try to remove the paper by opening the clip of the printer. The printer is having a from opening for replacing inks and for directly contacting the head kit.

Or, there might be no ink in the cartridge. Please check that too, even if the driver in the PC denotes there's enough ink.

Also, try "Deep Clean" in the printer's software, for deep cleaning of the Printer head. Just click on it, it'll do by its own.

Try these and get back.

Pixma ip4200 willl not print Cyan

I think the problm lies between the ink tank and the printhead. When this passage runs dry, sometimes it takes time for the ink to fill this passage again. Try printing again after a day or two.
