Question about Canon BubbleJet i560 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Black print head not working well after transporting.

It is only a few months old, and hardly used. I transported it by air freight long distance recently, and the black print is missing bits on the nozzle test print. I left the cartridges in during transport, and left it as is - they packed it well. Surely I don't need to buy another print head? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks

    Thank you -got the printer working. I also tried it on an older one though (s450), which had the same problem when I transported it overseas about a year ago, and has not been used since. unfortunately it did not work here - the black and yellow heads print intermittently, even after windex soak, a few nozzle cleans and deep cleans. Any ideas on this older printer would be gratefully appreciated, thanks.

Hi Pete, your're printer is probably still good. If you haven?t done so you should run the nozzle cleaning utility a few times. Compare the first on with the second or third and see if it?s getting better. If yes some of your nozzles were clogged. If it?s close to being back to normal you can run the cleaning utility again or you can remove the ink cartridge carrier and clean the nozzles. I had a Canon printer similar to yours so it?s probably similar to yours. Your ink cartridges plug into a carrier which actually contains the ink nozzles. Remove the ink cartridges from the carrier, place a piece of tape over the bottom ink output hole and store them oriented as if they were in the printer (up). This will prevent the ink from draining to the top of the cartridge and possibly causing flow problems later. Tank the cartridge carrier and place it in a small plastic bin and fill with Windex till the nozzles are covered. Make sure you also put some Windex in the carrier itself in case the blockage is there. I use straight Windex (window cleaner containing ammonia for non-American types); I find the real stuff is better than the store brands when it comes to removing stubborn clogs. I also use a sealable plastic food container to soak the print heads in. When I?m done I snap the airproof lid on so I can save and reuse the Windex again. Once you?ve done that use a Q-tip to gently scrub the surface of the nozzles and let soak overnight. After the soak is done shake off as much of the Windex as possible and reassemble the printer. Make sure you don?t let the cartridge carrier dry out, that will probably re-clog your nozzles again. Run a couple of nozzle cleaning cycles to clean out the residual Windex and start the flow of good in again. If it worked your printer should be back to normal again. Let us know how it turns out and don?t forget to rate the posting.

What is the role of freight rate management software?


Freight management is the system for optimizing the efficiency of commercial transport and freight. People have the tendency to think that it is only the heavy vehicles involved in between to carry out the transportation job with such aptness. However, one forgets to think about the system that lies behind the transportation.

A number of approaches are used to effectively implement freight management when the goods are transported. Freight Rate management Software the tool that is employed to minimize the expenses and determines the set price of transportation.

Freight costs are important considerations that need to be taken into account when the one producing the goods and transporting it wishes to calculate the fair price, yet profitable pricing, to charge for the goods. This is where logistics come to play its role. It is the logistics services which consider the shipping process, as the whole, including the vehicle type, shipment size, facility sites, mode of transport and the shipment frequency.

Won`t play movie, skipping sound.


You need to try to clean the laser head and the transport. To do this you will need cotton swabs, isopropyl alcohol and small cans of lithium grease and compressed air.. Open the up the compartment that the dvd discs are placed. In the center of the compartment you will find the spindle and a laser transport. In the transport you will see the laser head. Take a cotton swab and put a small amount of alcohol on the tip. Rub the tip of swab gently across the head of the laser. Do this until the head look bright and shiney. Use the other end of the swab to dry the excess moisture off the laser head. Take another swab and use a small amount of alcohol on the tip and go around the transport device cleaning the dust and dirt from it. Use a small can of compressed air to blow away any dust and dirt in the compartment. Once the laser head is cleaned and the transport is cleared of dust and dirt, Move the transport to the outer most point and bring it back in to its closest point. Do this several times. Do not applie to much pressure while doing it.If you find ruff and uneven action. Clean the areas of problem and return the transport action to smooth and easy operation. If still not smooth and easy. Take another cotton swab and use some lithium grease in very small amounts to lubricate the transport rails. Again move the transport back and forth to lubricate the laser transport. This should return the transport to normal action. Now play a music cd to calibrate the laser head . Let the cd play through a couple of times. After doing this you can now try a dvd disc and it should play normally. If it still does not play correctly, check the spindel to see if it is loose. If this is the case use a drop of super glue to tighten it up. Let it dry completely and try the disc again. It should work correctly. If you are still having a problem.You either have a problem with the laser itself or the drive motor. The drive motor problem would usually be noticed on the playing of the cd. The laserhead and the motor can be replaced if this is the problem. You can find more information on how to do these repairs on you tube. Put cleaning and repairing portable dvd players in the search engine and it will bring up videos on how people have done these types of repairs. I hope this information will help you with your problem.

Tape Transport


Be sure that whoever is replacing the elevator assembly ( transport module ) is putting in a NEW part and not an old part that is still works.

I would start doing this repair yourself... there are only:

4 screws

and

2 cables: one that powers the cassette load\unload motor
and the other is the tape sensors cable

once you pull the cover

they are very small phillips head screws: you NEED a very good, long, small Magnetic tip screwdriver.

Tthere is a manual screw drive near the loader \ unloader motor: it has a Red plastic phillips head drive screw.
This manually moves the Loader assy in and out: you will need to move it to uncover the two screws that are near the front of the machine.

when you find these screws: its a good idea to mark them with a red Sharpie, for easy finding next time..


If the machine is getting heavy use, then 5 months may not be that bad, if the machine is babied should last alot longer.

either way you can get a handle on the situation and save youself some money by bringing this particular service 'In House'


I did this fix last week on this unit.
it took me 15 minutes.
