I installed a new printhead in my i965 and now it won't print any
I had problems with some missing colours and thought that my printhead must be at fault.
I bought a new printhead and installed ti today. Now even after several deep cleanings I'm not getting anything on the test pages, Help!!
Canon helpline say it must be a mechanical fault.
Before at least it printed black and white docs, now it's not printing anything.

Could be the print job you send to the printer is set up to print in black and white.
Or the cartridges are full and the nozzles from the printhead are blocked.
Run a cleaning cycle on the printer. If some colour appears continue till all colours are back for all nozzles.
If you did not use he printer for a long time, remove the cartridges one by one and put a drop of cleaning fluid in the pipes in the cartridge holder (where the ink goes in) tun replace the cartridge and print one or two full sized colour photos, till all colours are back.
Turn Off Your Printer Remove K&Y Printhead from your printer. Put the Printhead in the bowl in the same Position As in the Printer And Pour Little hot water in the bowl till the printhead is half dipped in the Water. Leave in for 15-20 Min. after that Clean the Printhead with clean clothes.. Must Ensure that no Water is in the Circuit of Printhead. leave the printhead for 30 min. After that put Back in the Printer. You will Get the Better result than ever BUT PLease Donnot use clean Printhead Utility immediately after this process use after the Day. If it Doesnot Work Then Clean the Printhead in Hot Water Several Times.. Do not Remove Printheads Regularly From Your Printer.. I Have the Same Printer And Suffered Same Problem A Month Ago with Yellow Colour...
Most likely the print heads are dirty and need to be clean. The user manual for the Canon should tell you how to do that, but in case you don't have the manual, you can get it here: http://goo.gl/iIylF
hi from brisbane !!
your Canon printer is detecting low ink in the cartridge and stops the feed of ink .
i have had the same problem and have only refill the cartridge and its away again .
the cartridges have a few contacts on the back and sometimes by applying a magnent to those contacts , it erases the memory and start printing again .
try that and let me know how you go .
Yes those printheads do go bad, they burn out just like a light bulb. If you emptied cartridges then the purge/cleaning assembly is working properly, and the only other option is the expensive printhead.
Print out a calibration sheet, either from the menu, or press photo and cancel at the same time. Your calibration sheet is probably missing a color. You should have black, blue, yellow, and magenta(pink). If you're missing any of these colors, your printhead is clogged. Try doing a printhead cleaning. Print another calibration sheet, if the color is still missing, you need a new printhead. Call Kodak.
Buying a new printhead is a mighty good suggestion, it seems you have pretty well used up the maximum service life of your printhead, if i'm not mistaken. Try to reinstall your printer along with its software. Go to settings>control panel > remove hardware> then,reboot. After, rebooting, re-install your printer software and drivers.
