Try unplugging the printer from its electrical source for a couple of minutes. That should clear out the memory. Uninstall the printer drivers/software and install the latest drivers from the Canon site: Plug it back in and install the new drivers. Good luck, Tim

"banding" on photos

It sounds like you need a new purge assembly, that's the unit on the right where the printhead parks. It does the cleaning and also primes the printhead during printing, the ink can clog in the tubes and pumps and if you are printing photos, I would replace it before wasting any more photo paper.

My MP500 has stopped printing black

Two things, usually the printhead is bad and needs replacement, QY6-0059-000, on rare occasions I've seen the purge assembly not cleaning and purging the black properly, and that happens. I would change the printhead first.

My Paper comes White from the Printer.I replaced Ink-Cartridge tow times with new and original Canon Cartridges.Thee ist no Errors in Display

You either need a new printhead or you need a new purge assembly. When the purge assembly doesn't clean or prime the printhead properly you get blank prints, on the older machines you could do a clean cycle with the ink removed and see if the ink is cleaned from the filter in the printhead which means you need a printhead.

Black won't print. Changed all ink cartridges,

It may need a new purge assembly, if it doesn't clean both sides properly either color or black will quit. You might try a new printhead first, QY6-0064-000 around $40.00

Black ink cartridge changed on my canon i9950 but it won't print

Your printer will need either a new printhead, or possibly a purge assembly that cleans the printhead. Best to have a shop check it out so
you don't buy a part you don't need. If it can't clean then even a new printhead won't help.

Black in photos - Yes Black in DIN-A4-prinitings - No

print a demo sheet. Press copy and photo at the same time. Look at the eyes on the two kids in the picture, if they're coming out all white, your printhead is clogged. Do a printhead cleaning, if that doesn't work, call kodak, you need a printhead.

Kodak Easy Share 5100 will not print after I changed black cartridge

Press copy and photo at the same time and print a demo sheet. Look at the eyes of the two kids in the picture, if they look like zombies, your printhead is clogged. try cleaning the printhead and print the demo again. If it's the same, you need a new printhead. Call Kodak.

Wont print anything

Move the ink cartridge carriage (the printhead) to the middle of the printer like you're going to change cartridges.  Take out all the ink cartridges.  There should be two black springs on either side of the printhead.  Remove these and the printhead should pop out.  Clean the nozzels (the little parts that squirt out ink) and reassemble.

If this doesn't work, then you'll have to replace the printhead.

No Color Suppy Error Code

Try cleaning the print connectors on the cartridge housing area with a q-tip. This should resolve your problem, or else try to run ink cartridge test on your copier. Let me know if this fix your problem.

Some colours not printing

I bet you are using non genuine ink, the MP780 will not put up with that ink, you will need a new printhead and maybe a purge unit. Take the machine to your ink supplier and get him to fix it as he supplied the ink
